The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) confirmed two more outbreaks of avian influenza in small flocks in southern British Columbia and southeastern Alberta.

A statement from CFIA said the H5N1 strain of highly pathogenic avian influenza was identified Saturday in a flock in Cypress County, Alta., and on Sunday among birds in the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen in B.C.

The B.C. case came one day after 4,000 turkeys on a Fraser Valley farm were due to be euthanized as avian flu was verified last week on two commercial poultry farms in B.C.’s poultry producing hub of Abbotsford.

The infection in Cypress County, near Medicine Hat, is the 29th in Alberta but the first in more than a week.
