Whereas:

A case of foot-and-mouth disease in wild boar and a number of outbreaks of that disease in livestock were confirmed in Bulgaria in January 2011.

(4)

It is therefore necessary to prolong the measures laid down in Decision 2011/44/EU, until 30 June 2011.

(5)

Decision 2011/44/EU should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health,
