UK Has the Bird Flu

Preliminary findings on a dead swan found in Fife, Scotland, show it had H5 avian flu (Bird Flu), the U.K. government said.

The tests “have found highly pathogenic H5 avian flu in a sample from a swan,” the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs said in a statement on its Web site.
“The exact strain of the virus is not yet known. Tests are continuing and a further result is expected tomorrow,” the Defra statement said.

The dead swan was found on the shoreline near Cellardyke, in Fife, the British broadcasting Corp. reported.
