Wyoming reports bird flu

Wyoming has found avian influenza in a Canada goose.

It’s now the 11th state to report a case of the highly pathogenic strain of avian influenza.

Unlike the other 10 states, this time there has apparently not been any loss of chickens or turkeys.

British Columbia was hit hard in December, losing a number of flocks of laying hens and broilers.

Both countries lost export markets.
