Vets call for ban on bird imports

The Australian Veterinary Association is urging the Federal Government to ban all live bird imports after the discovery in Australia of three birds that have been exposed to avian influenza.

The pigeons were imported from Canada and, after quarantine inspectors in Melbourne identified the birds were carrying antibodies to the virus, imports from that country were banned.
