Virus causes peacocks to go spinning to their graves, ISLAMABAD -- The peacocks of Pakistan were dying in droves. Was the government covering it up?
I love it: "spinning peacock disease"...which turns out to be the reasonably prosaic Newcastle disease virus. But it's not often you get prose like this associated with viruses:
"...peacocks whirling themselves to death in mad dances that appeared to have no earthly explanation".
