Avian flu in Grimsby

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency reports an outbreak of highly-pathogenic avian influenza in Grimsby.

It said it was in a small non-poultry flock.

That notice came hours after a similar one in Brant County and less than a week after an outbreak in a commercial flock near Tavistock in Oxford County.

The disease is likely being carried by migrating birds, just as was the case during the spring migration.
