Over this side of the water the disease seems to be being spread by wild waterfowl. Here, bio-security though very important is of less concern than governmental response. Should a bird be found that tests positive beit wild or domesticated then all domestic poultry within a 3km radius will be slaughtered.
The UK government has set its face against vaccination as a preventitive measure. The most recent case is in France so it seems to be a racing probability that it will reach the UK. Given that the disease is in the wild bird population then erradication seems unlikely. Could this be the end of all free-range poultry keeping?
