  • Avian flu detected at 2 Abbotsford farms

Avian flu has been identified at two more commercial poultry farms in Abbotsford.

Figures from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency show there have been 44 B-C outbreaks of avian flu since October 20th.

More than five million birds have died or have been culled in the province since the first case of the H-5-N-1 variant was reported in April 2022.

The virus is quickly spread from wild birds migrating south and earlier this month the chief veterinarian ordered farmers to put their birds indoors.
