>>450 horses quarantined at Warren County Fairgrounds for herpes
The birds who were brought to the county fair are now being quarantined for 30 days, which will prevent any of the birds to attend the state fair in Columbus.
“The exhibitors going on to the state fair are going to be denied that opportunity, which we feel very sorry about.”
King said the virus usually has a low mortality rate, however they are contacting everyone who had an animal on exhibit at the fair.
“We’re going to have to inform every exhibitor unfortunately that we had a contagious disease here,” he said. “Fortunately, it’s only in chickens and pheasants.”
The Clark County Fair ends Friday.
