Voodoo Priests at Risk for Bird Flu
from Exploding Guitar
Voodoo priests who tear the throats out of live chickens in ritual sacrifices may be putting themselves at risk of contracting bird flu. Officials in the tiny West African country of Benin, which is the home of the ancient religion, say spreading the word about bird flu may help to save the lives of voodoo devotees. Benin borders Nigeria where an outbreak of the deadly H5N1 virus was found in poultry last week.
