Hong Kong: New B2B H5N1 alert

Thanks to Crof at H5N1 for this story. Please go to his site for the links :

" Health authorities have stepped up vigilance after a dead chicken found on Lantau Island tested positive for bird flu.

The highly decomposed chicken was found on Saturday on the shores of Sha Lo Wan, according to the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department.

The department said there are no poultry farms within three kilometers of the shore, and is investigating whether the chicken was washed up or dumped.

Nearby Sha Lo Wan Tsuen and Sha Lo Wan San Tsuen were checked but there was no evidence of any backyard poultry. The department will step up inspections of the shore and its immediate vicinity."
