A virulent strain of avian flu that's spreading across northwestern Europe may be responsible for a series of mysterious swan deaths in the U.K., post-mortem examinations have revealed.

In recent weeks, wildlife rescuers have spotted swans spinning in circles and bleeding from their nostrils before dying, The Guardian reported.

David Cash, a swan rescuer from Worcester in central England where at least 25 swans have died, witnessed birds suffering from avian flu-like symptoms.



This is going to become a massive problem. The first few farms in The Netherlands already have had all their fowls killed because avian flu was discovered.

If it continues to spread, and it likely will, the results for this industry will be devastating.
