    DARKE COUNTY — Another flock of turkeys at a farm in Darke County has tested positive for a strain of avian flu, according to a spokesperson from the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

    More than 15,000 commercial turkeys were put down because of the outbreak, the spokesperson said.

    News Center 7 is working to figure out which farm these turkeys were on.
