GREAT FALLS — The Montana Department of Livestock (MDOL) said in a news release that on Tuesday, it received confirmation of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) in a Glacier County flock.

This is the fourth Montana flock confirmed infected and is part of a wave of HPAI infections across the country that is linked to seasonal migrations of wild birds.

The Glacier County premises reported a large number of bird mortalities in recent days. Samples from the flock were submitted to the Montana Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (MVDL) and tested positive for the presence of avian influenza.

Previous detections in domestic poultry in Montana this year were in Judith Basin, Cascade, and Toole counties.

“HPAI continues to be a risk for any domestic poultry,” stated Dr. Marty Zaluski, Montana State Veterinarian. “We expect more infections in Montana this season unless domestic birds are kept indoors or separated from wild birds and waterfowl.”
