Residents are being asked to keep pets out of Capalaba Regional Park due to an outbreak of avian botulism in the water. <!-- google_ad_section_end(name=story_introduction) --><!-- // .story-intro --><!-- google_ad_section_start(name=story_body, weight=high) -->
The strain is not harmful to humans, but is killing birds and fish.
There is no scientific evidence to suggest it can harm pets, but Capalaba - Division 9 councillor Paul Gleeson has urged locals to refrain from taking their dogs to the park as a precaution.
He fears that if a pet consumes a poisoned bird or fish it could become sick as well.
