Avian Flu: Be Aware but Not Alarmed
Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza, HPAI for short, has now been detected in the SLV according to a recent article by Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), and more wild bird mortalities have been reported since the announcement. This is a sad situation, and we want the public to be aware but not alarmed. Unless you are a commercial or backyard poultry producer, or a waterfowl hunter, this will most likely have no effect on you. Transfer of the virus to humans is extremely rare.
If you are a poultry producer,
now is the time to take extra precautions to ensure your flock remains safe.
