Is Bird Flu On Its Way To Kalamazoo?
The Bird Flu or H5N2 avian influenza has been found in some geese here in Michigan. Where exactly, well not around here luckily, but on the east side. The geese carrying the virus were found in Macomb County.
The DNR are already on top of it to make sure it doesn't spread to any other parts of Michigan, but just to be safe it wouldn't be a bad idea to report any abnormal bird behavior to the MDARD or the DNR!
Michigan is the 21st state to report a case of the bird flu. The good news is it hasn't spread to any people, but it does still worry me. Not about getting here in Kalamazoo, more all my friends and family on the east side who live in Macomb County. Maybe I should just reschedule that road trip to Detroit for a little while....
