Bird Flu Discovered in mute swans

A swan sactuary in Dorchester, about 20 miles away from where I live has got the Bird flu that humans can also contract.
3 Swans were found dead that was infected and the rest of the swans are going to have to be "put down" to contain the disease.
The sanctuary has been around since about the 14 century.

I hope the birds in our avery don't catch this disease.

'specially if they have a hot pack on their foreheads and are still in their bunny slippers and sipping Thera-Flu?

Ack! You always get me cracking silly one-liners like this, Bo!:eek:
