MOSCOW Dec 30 Russia has registered outbreaks
of bird flu on two poultry farms in its southern regions of
Krasnodar and Rostov, the agriculture safety watchdog
Rosselkhoznadzor said in two statements on Friday.
Bird flu was found among turkey in the Rostov region and
among geese in the Krasnodar region, it said. The watchdog did
not say which strain of avian flu had been found.
In November, Russia reported two outbreaks of the highly
contagious H5 avian influenza virus among domestic birds in the
southwestern part of the country, according to the World
