As Thailand ordered a cull of tigers suspected of suffering from bird flu yesterday, here is a journal review of a paper published in China Journal of Veterinary Science in 2003. demonstrated tigers died of influenza virus infection in 2002. the sequence of NP protein indicated a influenza A virus infection. Though the subtype of the influenza A virus is not mentioned in the paper. the phylogenetic analysis showed great similarity between the NP gene of A/Tiger/Harbin/2/2002 and A/duck anyang/AVL/1/2001(H5N1) and A/goose/Guangdong/1/96(H5N1)

We are indebted to Mr.Tao Wei for his work in extracting and translating the phylogenetic and sequence data from the original chinese file and presenting us with the image files.
