Columbus Zoo Moving Some Birds Indoors Over Return Of Avian Flu


(Columbus, OH) -- Officials with the Columbus Zoo are temporarily moving some birds indoors due to the return of the avian flu.  

Park operators say wild birds can carry the virus and the fall migration means increased risk for many animals housed at the facility. Bird flu has been found in some domesticated populations in Ohio, including the three-million chickens that had to be euthanized in Defiance County. 

The avian flu does not pose an illness risk to humans.
