Seals Carrying Avian Flu

Recommended Posts

Here is an interesting article I found about seals carrying and dying from a strain of avian flu. Apparently most of the deaths took place in 2011. Scientists are concerned, however, because it appears that seals are like pigs -- they have the receptors for both avian and mammilian flus -- and since pigs are one of the prime species to pass new flu strains on to humans, there is some concern that seals may be able to, as well.
