Flu Strikes Down Hundreds of Ducks in Bali

DENPASAR

Hundreds of ducks in Takmung village, Klungkung regency, Bali, have suddenly died with avian flu believed to be the cause.

I Wayan Sudia, a duck breeder in Takmung village, said he had just lost hundreds of his ducks to bird flu.

“Laboratory reports show my ducks were infected by bird flu,” I Wayan Sudia told reporters on Thursday as reported by Antara news agency. “The symptoms included cloudy eyes and seizures,” he added.

Two months ago, Sudia bought 500 ducks in Tabanan regency, about 200 of which have died in the past few days.

Disinfectants have been distributed to breeders in the village for free to prevent the flu from spreading.
