    Hi folks
    Just trying to keep track of the puzzle pieces.
    No; I’m not an animal rights activist, so please don’t go there. I simply look at the data, but I do dearly love my 3 pooches.
    Best to all Bridget

    According to the New China net reported that, the Mongolian
    emergency case bureau person in charge said, since June, in the above two counties
    several households herd common people’s sheep has appeared gives off
    heat, losses of appetite and so on the symptom, after 23 days one after
    another died, at present more than 20 herdsmen’s flock of sheeps have
    received the infection, but had not discovered the person infects case
    of illness. (Abundant news

    The deaths of 400 sheep in two counties in Mongolia are cause for
    concern. There was not enough detail or clinical data to indicate the
    cause of death, but H5N1 bird flu should be considered. Many of the
    bar-headed geese that winter in northern India and fly to Qinghai Lake
    Nature Reserve continue fly north to southern Russia, flying over

    Reports on the H5N1 outbreak in Qingahi have indicated that over 8000
    birds have died. Deaths of domestic animals, including 84 sheep were
    reported previously.

    If the sheep in Mongolia have died from H5N1 infections, then the
    earlier Qinghai reports would be more credible. It would
    also confirm H5N1 infection of sheep, which hasn’t been reported

    More detail on the deaths of the sheep and any associated human cases
    would be useful
