An outbreak of an infectious chicken disease has been reported in Murray Bridge.

A case of Laryngotracheitis (ILT) has been reported in a commercial chicken shed earlier this year and the Department for Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA) is helping to stop the spread of disease with the distribution of a vaccine. The virus is not transmissible to humans.

Anyone who suspects an infection should have their birds tested by a vet or call the emergency animal disease watch hotline on 1800 675 888.
