Ducks in the Mid Columbia Dying in Droves, Here’s Why
Duck hunters in the Mid-Columbia and Tri-Cities area have been seeing hundreds of dead ducks (not killed by hunting) but just dead in their natural habitat.Experts with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services have determined a massive die-off of ducks, and other birds, is being caused by the Avian Cholera.
Just what is Avian Cholera you ask? It is a deadly bacteria that is brought on by long periods of cold damp weather and according to experts this bacteria CANNOT be spread to humans.
