Avian flu tally rises to 35

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency reports that highly-pathogenic avian influenza has broken out in 35 poultry flocks across Canada.

Sixteen are in Ontario claiming 250,000 birds that either died or were euthanized to prevent the disease from spreading.

Nationally the disease or quarantines have claimed 717,100 birds, not counting a large duck business in Quebec where control measures are still in progress.
