Eight poultry farms in southwestern Ontario are now under quarantine – and authorities are scrambling to contain an outbreak of a bird flu virus – found on a turkey farm near Woodstock.

The disease was discovered after birds began dying late last week.

So far 75-hundred on the farm have perished.

A Canadian Food Inspection Agency official says the remaining birds – in the flock of 12-thousand – will be euthanized.

Testing should reveal whether this outbreak is caused by the same virus that’s been moving among American poultry operations in a number of states lately.
