Bavaria: Ban on poultry shows after bird flu outbreak

Erlangen (dpa / lby) - In order to contain the avian influenza, increased security measures are to apply across Bavaria with immediate effect. These should include a ban on exhibitions and markets and a ban on feeding wild birds, said the State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL) based in Erlangen on Monday. The Bavarian Ministry of the Environment wants to avoid contact between wild birds and domestic and commercial poultry through increased biosecurity measures and thus prevent them from being introduced into poultry farms, it said.

Since October, a total of four cases in hobby poultry farming in the districts of Miltenberg and Landshut have been detected in Bavaria. The LGL announced that more than 1,200 cases of kept poultry and wild birds had already been registered throughout Germany this season. After the two bird flu cases in the district of Landshut became known on the Sunday before last, measures were initially only imposed in the affected area.
