It’s a lockdown, of sorts, for all birds at the Potawatomi Zoo, as they’ve been pulled out of the outdoor habitats due to the increase of cases of avian influenza.
In a post of Twitter, zoo leaders stated that avian influenza is highly contagious, so for the health and safety of their birds, they’ll be staying inside.
Due to an increase of cases of avian influenza, we’ve pulled all our birds from outdoor habitats and put in safety precautions for our staff. Avian influenza is highly contagious, so for the health and safety of our birds, we’re keeping them inside.
