Bird fever serious threat in Nelson area

There is presently a “bird fever” epidemic in Nelson and apparently Winlaw that is making our birds and outdoor cats very sick.

There is presently a “bird fever” epidemic in Nelson and apparently Winlaw that is making our birds and outdoor cats very sick. My cat was very ill with salmonella poisoning last week and according to my veterinarian (Selkirk) there have been numerous cases daily. They would like to see all bird feeders temporarily  taken down and or cleaned to rectify this problem.

It is awful to see the unnecessary death of so many birds and the illness of so many outdoor cats. (not to mention the hefty vet bill associated)

The Nelson area public needs to become educated and made aware of this high risk situation to not only save our birds, but to keep their pet felines indoors until it is safe to allow them outside.
