Bird Flu #SJSreports Gianna
The bird flu was found on a farm in Iowa's Osceola County. This is a very deadly H5N2 bird flu virus. 3.8 million hens must be killed in Iowa because they are contaminated with this awful disease. Seven states in the midwest have been effected by this flu, 6.3 million chicken and turkeys since March. Scientists believe that once the weather gets warmer the virus will die down. When birds receive this disease, they die quickly. After the birds die, farmers compost the dead because the heat could possibly stop the disease from spreading.
