The Czech Republic started culling over 15,000 ducks from a farm in the country's south due to an outbreak of bird flu, Reuters reported, citing CTK news agency on Monday.

The farm in the town of Frahelz, 130 km (80 miles) from Prague, had 22,000 ducks originally, of which 7,000 died last week due to the highly pathogenic H5N1 virus, CTK said.

Hungary last week reported an outbreak of the same virus, and a farm was forced to kill 3,000 geese.
