One state remains untouched by HPAI
HPAI is confirmed in almost every state.
High Pathogenic Avian Influenza is now confirmed in 49 states across the U.S.
Most recently hitting the Bayou State, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries confirmed several captive birds in the northeast corner of the state have died from the virus. They say it was also discovered in blue-winged teal that had been harvested by a hunter.
So far this year, more than 3,000 wild birds have been killed due to HPAI along with a record-breaking 53 million domestic birds.
According to APHIS, the only state that has not seen an outbreak this year is West Virginia.
