Bird flu scare in India, birds found dead in Kaziranga National Park

A bird flu scare has hit the Kaziranga National Park in Assam, a northeastern state of India, with carcasses of at least a dozen migratory Bar-headed Geese found in the sanctuary, officials said on Friday.

A park warden said at least seven geese were found dead on Friday. Five carcasses of the same species that had recently arrived at the sanctuary from Siberia were recovered Thursday.

'A team of experts, including veterinarians, are carrying out post-mortem of the birds and samples would be sent to Bhopal to find out if the deaths were due to avian influenza or some other disease,' a park ranger said.
