Dead birds in Yokohama

17 crows, 1 pigeon found dead on Yokohama street

Health authorities on Tuesday were trying to determine what killed 17 crows and one pigeon whose bodies were found on the street in Yokohama earlier in the day.

According to police, the birds were found dead at around 8 a.m. in a 200-meter radius in an entertainment district about 400 meters from JR Kannai Station. NTV quoted police as saying there were no external injuries on the birds.

Health authorities said there is a possibility that some sort of bird flu might have been responsible.

Japan has been on the alert against the spread of H7N9 bird flu after Taiwan reported a case of the deadly strain, the world’s first outside mainland China.
