Confirmed H5N1 Strain Bird Flu Outbreak in India 

According to health officials, India confirmed on Thursday that the latest outbreak of bird flu in poultry was the H5N1 strain. To control the outbreak, Government workers plan to slaughter 150,000 poultry around the affected farm in Manipur state.

If we followed Christ’s teaching of compassion and mercy, we would not exploit God’s animals for our benefit causing great misery to them and humanity. Countless poultry had been slaughtered in the last few years as a way to prevent the spread of the bird flu virus. Adopting a plant based-diet would help reduce the number of birds raised for food, and minimize the spread of the virus.
