Bird Flu menace

How coincidental. I just posted the joke about
the bird, Mr Cock-a-doodle-doo, and the Star today
headlines the bird flu menace and that Malaysia
should not allow them birds to cross the border
in the wake of the recent escalating number of bird flu
cases in Indonesia. Read about it here


  1. and how can they do that?

    By building a big net?

  2. Pandabonium, yes, poor birds if they're being confiscated and culled.

    Robin, Customs officers don't need to catch any. They just need to prevent birds and eggs from entering into Malaysian soil.

    i guess they can't stop all, afterall some are migratory birds

    Anyhow, African swallows are non-migratory!

  5. Slurp!, you're right but they're doing what can be controlled. In this case, it's the reared birds, chicken.

    SCW, hi and welcome. Thanks for that info.
