Bird flu suspected at poultry farm in GermanyNews/Activism

MUNICH - Fears grew Monday that bird flu might have spread to a poultry farm in Germany after seven ducks died with influenza-like symptoms in the southern state of Bavaria. Tests were being carried on the animals to determine whether they were infected with the virulent H5N1 strain, which has already killed around 200 wild birds and four mammals. If confirmed, it would be the first case of bird flu at a poultry farm in Germany. All the animals at the farm in the district of Lichtenfels were culled during the night as a precaution, the consumer affairs ministry said.
