OPINION: Your old mate has long argued Landcorp’s farming business – Pamu – is a bigger dog than he is.
Linying Ouyang recently pleaded guilty to three charges under the Biosecurity Act 1993 and was sentenced with the big fine.
A search warrant was executed at Ouyang’s home in November 2019 and investigators discovered sales and other attempts by her to sell dry, edible bird’s nests via a WeChat group – advertised for sale at over $330 a pop!
MPI’s Ron Scott says edible bird’s nests are a Chinese delicacy made from the saliva of the Swiftlet bird. Now the Hound has eaten some pretty horrible things in his time, but not even he would be tempted to eat the spit-generated nest of a Swiftlet bird – let alone pay $330 for the privilege!
