Hundred of crows die, fear of bird flu

Jamshedpur: Khunti is confronting sporadic rise in the death toll off crows since last few weeks. The area has reported death of about 200 crows in the last one and half month period.

“Initially, we thought the deaths (of crows) are stray cases but gradually when we found more and more crows dying mysterious we decided to approach the veterinary department for probe into the matter,” said a resident.

With hundreds of crows dying due to the H5N1 variant of bird flu, the animal husbandry department has also asked locals to feed crows antibiotic-mixed cooked rice, to wear masks and gloves while burying a dead crow and to disinfect the area.
