Avian flu at Indian reservation

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has confirmed an outbreak of highly-infectious avian influenza in the Township of Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation, Ont.

It is the fourth outbreak in less than a week in Ontario.

The others were at a turkey farm east of London, at a poultry farm in the northern part of Waterloo Region and a poultry operation in Erasmosa Township, Wellington County, which is close to the outbreak in the Waterloo Region.

The Indian reservation, previously known as Cape Croker, is north of Wiarton in the northern part of the Bruce Peninsula.
