    Bird flu found in birds in Itahari children park
    Park closed for a month


    - BEDRAJ POUDEL, Itahari


    Mar 8, 2017- A strain of bird flu has been detected in birds at a children park in Taltalaiya of Sunsari district.

    Regional Laboratory in Biratnagar and Central Veterinary Laboratory in Kathmandu confirmed the presence of H5N1 influenza virus after a test conducted on dead birds from the park.
    ...
    Taltalaiya Development and Conservation Committee General Secretary Ramesh Adhikari informed that different animals and birds had died in the park in a course of one week.

    The death of turkey, peacock, Eurasian eagle owl, swan, guinea pig and leopard cat among others raised suspicion and the committee decided to send them for the test.

    The park that houses some 22 species of rare birds receives 500 footfalls on daily basis. Now the experts are trying to contain the outbreak by spreading pesticides in the area.
