The Somme department will definitely not have been spared by the bird flu virus. Despite precautions taken throughout France to prevent the spread of the disease, a new outbreak considered “highly pathogenic” was discovered in Sailly-Flibeaucourt, near Abbeville.
This outbreak of bird flu affected a turkey farm and 27,000 birds will be euthanized in the days that follow.

Any discovery of a dead bird in this sector must be reported to the OFB or the Federation of Hunters.
