200 Graylag Geese Dead On Dutch Island

The Dutch national forest management agency (Staatsbosbeheer) revealed that in the last month two hundred Graylag Geese were found dead on the island of Texel of unknown causes. The birds were found in the De Muy reserve, which is part of the Dunes National Park on the island.

Although the cause of death is still unknown, the agency did assure the public that the dead birds posed no danger to humans and did not carry botulism or the H5N1 virus. The population of Graylag Geese over the entire Netherlands has risen dramatically in recent years.
