Dead chickens in Portugal

Saturday Portuguese authorities discovered roughly 400 dead chickens in a town, but there was no indication that they died from bird flu, officials said Sunday. The chickens apparently were stuff in “feed” bags and latter discarded on a cliff in the town of Sever do Vouga. It is speculated that a local farmer may have disposed of them and that residents then alerted authorities because a horrible stench in the area.

A veterinarian was immediately called to investigate and conduct test on the dead chickens. Portugal has not yet reported any cases of the H5N1 bird flu.
