Dead swans in Germany test positive for H5N1

The industrious people at CurEvents are often the first to pick up a new story, and here's the latest example: Dead swans in Germany test positive for H5N1 bird flu.

Two dead swans in Germany have tested positive for the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu, the Agriculture and Consumer Protection ministry said on Tuesday.

A spokeswoman for the ministry told Reuters two of four dead swans found on the Baltic Sea island of Ruegen had registered positive in an initial test for the virus.

German-language media have confirmed the report; here is the story, in German, in Der Spiegel.
