    YOU MUST LEAVE THE BIRDS IN CANADA

    If you attempt to enter the US with wild birds taken in Saskatchewan, the birds will be confiscated and you may be subject to penalties.

    Has the US Fish & Wildlife figured out a way to keep those birds from migrating south??

    They'll probably ask for their passports.

    This is from the USDA website. Nothing about killed wild birds anywhere on the site.
    Nothing about this on Customs and Border Protection, CDC, or any other site that I can find.
    The links you posted take me nowhere so I don’t know what your information is based on. I am guessing you got this information by e-mail and I don’t buy it

    STATEMENT BY DR. JOHN CLIFFORD ON AVIAN INFLUENZA DETECTION IN CANADA
    September 27, 2007
    “Today, the Canadian Food Inspection Service Agency (CFIA) confirmed that test results from samples collected at a commercial broiler breeder farm in the Saskatchewan Province were positive for a North American strain of an H7N3 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) virus. The virus detected in Canada is not the HPAI H5N1 virus that has spread through birds in Asia, Europe and Africa.
    “In accordance with an agreement between the United States and Canada, USDA is barring imports of all live birds, including chickens, turkeys and others, along with unprocessed avian products from the entire province of Saskatchewan. The United States has not imported poultry products from Saskatchewan since 2005.
    “CFIA is beginning depopulation of the infected flock and initiating thorough surveillance in the surrounding area. Canadian officials have assured us they will continue to provide us with detailed information on the epidemiological investigation and surveillance reports.
    “We will continue to monitor the situation closely. USDA is conducting surveillance for all strains of avian influenza, in cooperation with states, the Department of the Interior (DOI) and industry. Since March 2006, USDA, DOI and their state partners have collected approximately 175,000 live bird and environmental samples, all of which tested negative for HPAI. In addition, we continue to work closely with our international counterparts to rapidly detect and respond to detections of the virus.”

    My understanding is that it was a avian strain that is only specific to chickens and has only been found at one facility, so for US border officials to ban wild birds seems like a pretty big brush stroke.

    Those of us in the Pacific Northwet stand ready to guard our borders from invaders carrying disease. I personally have plans to stake out 10 acres of flooded millet in an all out attempt to eliminate the threat.

    Not on my watch regards
