On November first a large number of dead birds were found near Sambhar Lake, India's largest saltwater lake located near Jaipur. In the following 9 days, the incident grew in number and according to RAJUVAS, this is a probable case of avian botulism. There are signs of flaccid paralysis among the affected birds but no other signs have been diagnosed yet. They are still running tests to find out the real reason behind this.
