    The Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) confirms the first case of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) was found in Nevada. HPAI is a virus that is highly contagious among birds, and can be deadly to them. This strain (H5N8) has not been shown to cause any human infection.

    The infected bird was a female mallard found in Lincoln County on January 23, 2015. The bird was then taken to the California Animal Health & Food Safety Laboratory, where it tested positive for HPAI.
