BC has recorded another case of avian flu, it's third in less than a week, after no cases had been reported since June.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the September 18th outbreak involves a small flock in Spallumcheen, while another small flock in the Cariboo was infected on the 15th and the highly transmissible illness was identified among a commercial flock in Chilliwack on the 12th.
Efforts are underway to contain the spread of the illness in those locations, while farmers are urged to ensure their flocks cannot mingle with wild birds.
Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario have all seen a jump in avian flu cases that experts say is linked to increased contact between domestic and wild flocks during the fall migration.
