Minko Angelov said the two farms had been hit by the highly pathogenic avian influenza type A. This is the second outbreak in the village since April, when over 40,000 hens were culled, reported Reuters.

Severe forms of avian influenza have spread in Europe and Asia in recent weeks.

Avian influenza is often fatal for poultry. It cannot be transmitted through food, although some human cases have raised concern among epidemiologists.
