Bird flu has returned to Midwest earlier than authorities expected after a lull of several months, the Minnesota Board of Animal Health said Wednesday.

For the first time in three months, bird flu has been detected on a Minnesota poultry farm.

A Meeker County turkey operation had to cull its flock of nearly 129,000 birds after the highly pathogenic bird flu virus was confirmed on Tuesday, according to the state Board of Animal Health.

On Wednesday, a second confirmed outbreak in the west-central county was reported. That turkey operation has more than 46,000 birds.
