Stoke FM Knows H5N1 Avian Flu, Food Bank Criticism Blowback, & Pet Food Band
The BC Government says that the frequency of H5N1 avian flu that has infected 52 flocks in BC farms, is decreasing, in part due to the end of wild bird migration season. Although the virus poses no threat to human populations, it is highly contagious amongst domesticated bird populations.
The Community Connections Food Bank has had to respond to online criticism in regards to the perception of who is using the food bank, with the belief that there are people abusing it. Jenn let us know what she thinks about that. Please donate to the food bank today by following the link below.
The British Columbia Society to Prevent Cruelty to Animals (BC SPCA) also acts like food bank for pets, and they are seeing massive increases in use, as well. Follow the link below to help them out, as well.
