Guidance on Avian Influenza for Hunters

Thursday, 5 January 2017

Introduction
Hunting associations and wildlife authorities should be aware that H5N8 and other avian influenza viruses might be present in waterfowl hunted during the migratory season. No human cases of the avian influenza H5N8 subtype currently circulating, or other viruses of this subtype, have been reported.
 
However hunters are potentially at risk of infection from influenza viruses and other avian pathogens (e.g. salmonella, chlamydia). There is no evidence that properly cooked waterfowl (or domestic poultry) can cause illness in people. Hunting, handling and dressing of shot waterfowl carries the risk of spreading avian influenza viruses to susceptible poultry.
 
Surveillance of wild waterfowl is an important function that hunters can perform to assist the Department of Agriculture in avian influenza controls.
