West Nile Virus

Veneta has found two dead crows which went into Sacramento/Yolo County Vector Control for testing.  Both birds came back positive for West Nile Virus. 

A number of people have reported to have thrown dead birds into trash.  The dead birds (and squirrels) found, need to be double plastic bagged and the local County Vector Control needs to be notified so they can pick the birds up and test them for West Nile.  This is one way they have to control the spread of the virus.
