Save the Ducks!

The bird flu virus found at a poultry farm is the deadly H5N1 strain, U.K. officials confirmed today. The source of the infection at the farm, home to 5,000 turkeys, more than 1,000 ducks and almost 500 geese, is under investigation, the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs said today at a press conference broadcast on the BBC.
