New Bird Flu Reports in Alaska, South Dakota, and Utah

By Tim Gamble  10-14-2022

The are new reports of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), commonly known as bird flu, in Alaska, South Dakota, and Utah. 

In South Dakota and Utah, these latest outbreaks have occurred on commercial turkey farms, leading to the culling of approximately 118,600 turkeys. In Alaska, bird flu was recently detected in a flock of backyard chickens, and at another nearby mixed poultry flock. 

Although these numbers are much better than the over 25 million birds that were culled earlier this year due to the bird flu, it is an indication that the bird flu pandemic is not yet fully over. 

According the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the symptoms of bird flu are “Sudden death of multiple birds in the flock, nasal discharge, sneezing, coughing, or respiratory distress are very concerning and should be reported. Other signs of HPAI include a significant drop in water consumption, diarrhea, lethargy, abnormal behavior or difficulty walking, blue discoloration of the comb and wattles, or swollen comb, wattles, legs, or head.
