The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Thursday it has confirmed the H5N2 strain in a flock of 53,000 turkeys in eastern South Dakota, and a fourth Minnesota case in the southwest part of the state involving a commercial turkey farm with about 21,000 birds. The birds at both places have been quarantined and will be killed to prevent the disease’s spread.
