REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. (AP) — Authorities are draining a pond in Redwood Shores after an avian cholera outbreak killed 185 ducks in one week.
The San Jose Mercury News reports (http://bit.ly/Kc6SWQ ) that U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials said Friday that the disease is not a threat to humans.
Officials say the cholera outbreak likely came from birds in the east San Francisco Bay area, where an outbreak was reported at a park in Hayward.
