Bird flu found in commercial turkey flock in Stanislaus County

WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal agriculture officials say they have found avian influenza in a commercial turkey flock in central California.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Saturday that the facility in Stanislaus County has been quarantined and birds from the affected flock will not enter the food system.

Testing occurred after the flock experienced a spike in deaths.

Officials said there is no immediate public health concern and the detected strain - H5N8 - is not known to harm humans. There have been no human cases of this strain of the bird flu reported in the U.S. or internationally.

The bird flu strain H5N1 ravaged poultry across Asia in 2003 and is more easily spread among humans.

Reminder: To kill bacteria and viruses in poultry and eggs, cook food to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

Boy bitten, wounded by Tracy police K9

A teenage boy was bitten and injured by a Tracy police K9 Thursday night, police said.

The teen was treated at a nearby hospital and then released. Police said the boy suffered minor injuries.

The incident happened around 8:45 p.m. on the 1700 block of Cherry Blossom Lane. Police said an on-duty officer parked and secured his patrol car with the K9 in the back seat before walking away from his unit.

At some point, the K9 got out of the car and attacked the boy.

A good Samaritan, who was driving by, saw the dog jump at the teen. The driver got out of the car and pulled the dog off the boy. Neighbor Gary Manuel ran outside after hearing the boy's screams.

Women's center opens new shelter for domestic violence survivors in Tracy

A new shelter for women and their children leaving a home with domestic violence was opened Friday in Tracy.

The location has 12 beds and is operated by the Women's Center-Youth and Family Services.

Director Joelle Gomez said it was important for a shelter to be created in that part of San Joaquin County.

"People access services in their community, far more than they do reaching out to the unknown," Gomez said. "She may not have transportation, work and school may not be in that community. It makes so much sense to have a facility and safe place for women and children in their community."
