HPAI detected in second Allen County, Indiana flock


Highly pathogenic avian influenza has been detected in a small flock of birds in Northeast Indiana.  This is the second case in Allen County.  It is considered a presumptive-positive case while samples are verified at the USDA National Veterinary Services Laboratory.  The flock of approximately 100 mixed-species birds was reported following the unexplained death of eight birds in less than 24-hours.  The remaining birds in the flock were depopulated to prevent the spread of the disease and a 6.2-mile control zone has been established.
