Avian influenza, also known as bird influenza,

Fears of the spread prompted Canadian food experts to euthanize a large number of birds in Quebec.

Authorities gasped nearly 75,000 chickens at a farm in the holy man Alphonse-de-Granby, Ky.

After the transition one of two horse shelters located in a similar home was distinguished.

The authorities chose to euthanize the birds in two structures to prevent the spread of infection.

Meanwhile, the Canadian Food Examination Organization killed 11,000 turkeys at a close farm for a similar interpretation,

according to Pierre-Luc LeBlanc, leader of Poultry Ranchers Quebec.

"It's a major issue," LeBlanc said. He says the area is watching for potential threat

Because there are a large number of farms close to each other - there are about 200 within a 10 kilometer sweep.

The infection is extraordinarily contagious," LeBlanc said. "The gamble is too high for different farms."

LeBlanc says the city has taken serious defensive measures to restrict the potential for spread.
