DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Officials say there’s another probable case of bird flu in Iowa.

The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship said Wednesday it’s responding to a probable case of bird flu at a commercial laying operation in Wright County in northern Iowa. Initial testing was positive for the disease. If confirmed, the operation’s estimated 1 million birds will be euthanized.

The announcement comes a day after the department said other probable cases were reported in Adair and Webster counties.

More than 26 million birds have been affected by bird flu in the state. Neighboring Nebraska and Minnesota have also announced new cases of the disease.
