Just on the local news, of bird flu in foxes.

Three Red Fox Kits From Lapeer, Macomb and St. Clair Counties Die From Bird Flu
May 12, 2022 9and10news Site Staff

Three red fox kits from separate dens in Lapeer, Macomb and St. Clair Counties died from the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza, according to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

This is Michigan’s first confirmation of HPAI in wild mammals, and comes after HPAI was found in two Antrim and Otsego County birds Thursday.

“HPAI H5N1 viruses may occasionally transmit from birds to mammals, as occurred in these cases, and there may be additional detections in other mammals during this outbreak, but they likely will be isolated cases,” said Megan Moriarty, the state wildlife veterinarian with the DNR. “At this point, it is unclear how the fox kits became infected, but it’s possible that they were exposed by consuming infected birds, such as waterfowl.”

Yes dead foxes reported here from bird flu.
It is a zoonotic disease(can spread to humans and between species)
Like the covid.
People hunting are being advised to follow all precautions when handling and processing geese,and not to touch or pick up anything found dead.
A buddy found a dead goose on the ice in front of his goose blind when he first went in to set up a few weeks ago.he didnt touch it,but he could see where other animals had fed on it-likely mink or fox,so now if the bird was infected those animals could be infected and spread it.

Kind of gives revelations a lot more teeth. Viruses didn't cross species before these were cooked up in labs.

Harder to raise your own or hunt for meat when it gets to where you can't
due to health risk. When the food, power, transition,and water is controlled pushing the mark will be very easy. Heck it won't take much to implement just look how many volunteered for an experimental shot and the push to make it mandatory. The sky was falling.

Just wait tell the really nasty Viruses get released. Folks we ain't seen nothing yet.

Care to name your source for that little factoid?

Exactly what their angle will be. Or the next “horrible” non deadly strain of cv like the omicron! Lol! Whatever the cost, no matter the damage, they will stop at nothing, besides a patriots bullet perhaps. We shall find out soon enough I imagine. I hope enough are prepared for what the next phase will likely be. Read a little history, this has all been played out many times over. Great, now I’m probably on some darn list!
