On April 8, 2015, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) confirmed the presence of a highly pathogenic H5N2 avian influenza virus at a turkey farm near Woodstock, Ontario. Avian influenza (AI) can infect domesticated and wild birds, including chickens, turkeys, pheasants, quails, ducks, geese, pigeons, psittacines and guinea fowl. A highly pathogenic virus, as opposed to a low pathogenic virus, can causes severe illness and death in domestic birds.
