    CHILLIWACK (NEWS1130) – A fungus is responsible for killing hundreds of
    ducks in Chilliwack last week. People visiting Sardis Park were
    horrified to see dead and dying mallards everywhere, as city staff
    filled black plastic garbage bags with their carcasses.
    Tests done in Abbotsford confirm the ducks breathed in a fungus as they
    ate mouldy feed.

    The fungus can kill thousands of birds at a time. There is no danger
    to people.
