A temporary control zone has been declared in the municipalities of La Turballe, Mesquer, Le Croisic, Guérande and Piriac-sur-Mer. This system establishes that, on farms, animals must remain inside buildings or under nets, and movement must be minimal.

Do not touch or go near wild animals.

It is also recommended not to touch or feed wild animals in this area. You should also not go near the corpses and inform the French Biodiversity Office about people who are dead or who appear to be sick.

In France, cases of bird flu are regularly detected. This summer, this was the case in Alsace, at the Kintzheim eagle flight, or in the north, at the Fort-Mardyck zoo. Western France has been particularly hard hit this year, with millions of birds culled.
