UAE says kill pet birds.
Abu Dhabi officials have told residents to kill pet birds or chickens as a precaution against bird flu, reported Gulf News.
Pets can be handed over the municipality to be destroyed. Chickens should be killed as soon as possible, said officials.
The emirate’s government plans to begin inspecting homes to ensure all bird pets and domestic poultry have been killed, a government spokesman, who asked no to be identified, said today.
The checks are also expected to extend to the six other members of the federation including Dubai.
