Fans of Ron Erhardt's take on avian flu, delivered in remarks on the Minnesota House of Representatives, should groove on the cause of the disease posited in a letter to the editors of the Dairyland Peach rom Irma Achmann of Avon.
In Watch out for drone attacks, Achmann cautions readers in Central Minnesota:
With this chicken flu over now and no one seems to have gotten too shook up. What if this is a brand of germ warfare spread by drones?
If a semi drove from Washington State to Atlanta and dropped a drone every 300 miles or so with an infected load of manure, one or three in Minnesota, that’s all it would take.
What if they come along next fall with a super flu and dropped it among medium sized cities? What would we do? Millions of dead people.
This letter would have made more of an impact when the chicken flu was half done. If you find a dead drone, call authorities. You might find more drones then dead wildlife.
If any of our vigilant readers sees a semi dropping off a load of manure and a drone in their neighborhood, contact the authorities but not before texting us exclusive photos, along with an identification of what sort of manure is being spread around.
Those readers who aren't out looking for a load of manure should check out Minnesota Public Radio's excellent coverage of bird flu here for accurate information.
