The Department of Agriculture has confirmed high pathogenic avian influenza at a second commercial flock in Lincoln County, Tennessee. Agri-Pulse reports the flock is less than two miles from the site HPAI was detected earlier this month.

It is the same strain found 13 days ago at the first location in the county. The flock of 55,000 chickens will be depopulated, and surveillance and testing for the disease will be conducted in the immediate area.

Tennessee State Veterinarian Charles Hatcher said that wild birds can carry the strain from different sites, and that “this is not unexpected.” He says the state will continue to work quickly to prevent the virus from spreading further. Two cases of low pathogenic avian influenza were also found in the area, along with cases in northern Alabama that were confirmed by USDA Thursday.
