Canada Investigates Second Backyard Poultry Flock For Bird Flu

A second flock of poultry in Canada has been quarantined. While there is no evidence that this second flock has any birds with the virus.

(Reuters)"A quarantine has been instituted at that premise and it's because there's been contact either with live birds or through foot traffic and potential contamination with the original infected farm," said Canadian Food Inspection Agency veterinarian Jim Clark.
Tests results are due on Tuesday from the second group of birds, this is no longer something "over there"!
