Zoos throughout the country are taking steps to protect their birds from the avian influenza outbreak. Nearly 24 million poultry birds have been infected by the flu in commercial and backyard chickens, duck and turkey flocks, according to data from the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. “We are currently monitoring a strain of avian influenza in wild birds,” a spokesperson for the zoo wrote in an email to Fox News Digital, but he specified that it does not pose a threat to humans.
