Cripes.  It's the equivalent of various departments of conservation
felling trees near paths "just in case" they fall on a bushwalker.  Or
(closer to my experience) dam builders overengineering "just in case"
there's a 1 in 1000 year flood.

Hi All,
Apologies for cross-posting, originally from EBN reader Howard King in

Dr. WHO - This has to be one of the worst misrepresentations of the
truth I
have read in a long chalk no mention of poultry notice - and the
statement is beyond belief. World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE)
director-general Dr Bernard Vallat said the organisation was putting
together a record of all species of migratory birds, the diseases they
be carrying and countries they are travelling to.
