Residents Worry Dead Birds Result of West Nile
Officials are monitoring any possible issues.
Recently, a few residents have been reporting dead birds around town in fear that it may be caused by the West Nile Virus.
Millburn Animal Control met with the town's Department of Health yesterday to discuss the issue, if any.
"As of now there is nothing to be concerned about," Joe Bielski of the Animal Control said. "We are currently monitoring the situation though."
Officials ask residents though, if they see any dead birds to report it to the Department of Health at 973-535-7000 so can pick it up for examination.
The department asks for residents to contact immediately because once the bird starts to decompose it can't be tested.
