Bird Flu Found In Clackamas County Flock

(Portland, OR) -- Bird flu has been found in a privately owned flock of ducks and geese in Clackamas County. The Oregon Department of Agriculture says it's the first detection of bird flu in the county. The flock included 30 ducks and five geese. They were euthanized and they will be disposed of, and won't enter the food system. There's no immediate threat to the public from the birds. The CDC says the risk to public health from the exposure remains low. The ODA is advising commercial and backyard flock owners to take steps that will reduce the risk their birds could become infected.
