H5N1 Bird Flu Strain Confirmed in the UK
Tests have confirmed that the bird
flu strain found in Norfolk turkeys at a farm in East Anglia, UK, is
the deadly H5N1 type that is dangerous to humans. Thousands of
turkeys, geese and ducks have been slaughtered and emergency
protection zones were immediately set up around the site. Farmers
and health officials fear that if the disease spreads, it may lead
to shortages of turkeys for Christmas and cause tremendous
consequences to the industry.
When we cause misery to God's
Creation, we cause misery to us. Raising animals for food under
intense confinement and suffering not only endangers our health but
most importantly, it shows disobedience to God.
