The next big disaster.

Bird flu is now endemic throught most of Europe, plus Nigeria and Iraq. With each new country infected, chances are greater that the flu will become an epidemic, and a serious danger to the human population.

German cat gets deadly bird flu:
"A domestic cat in Germany has become the first European Union mammal to die of the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu.

The cat was found dead at the weekend on the Baltic island of Ruegen, where dozens of birds infected with H5N1 have been found."
