After a handful of turkeys suddenly died, some neighbours in the area were concerned the birds were poisoned.
But a Guelph pathologist with the Canadian Cooperative Wildlife Health Centre who looked at the dead birds said the turkeys had bacteria called Avian Cholera.
"We have very rarely seen infections with this bacterium in wild birds here in Ontario,” Doug Campbell said.
“You know, I've probably seen a handful of cases."
