Three Wild Birds Die from Bird Flu

On June 24, 2007, three wild birds found dead in Nuremberg, Germany tested positive for the deadly H5N1 strain of the disease, making the total toll to six so far. As precautionary actions, farmers in the region have been ordered to confine all poultry to closed stalls and a 21-day ban was imposed on moving poultry or poultry products in or out of the area, which is now a quarantine zone. So far, the H5N1 virus has killed nearly 200 people out of over 300 known cases; none in Europe.

The way we irresponsibly manipulate the environment and God’s creatures for our benefit has brought grave consequences to us. In this case, the intense confinement and stress poultry suffer makes the avian virus transmission easier.

The transition to a plant-based diet would help reduce the number of poultry in farms and help stop the spread of the bird flu virus.
