SOFIA (Reuters) - Bulgaria has discovered its first case of H5 bird flu in a dead swan on its border with Romania, authorities said on Friday, and samples will be sent to Britain to test whether it is strain that can kill people.

Sandwiched between Romania and Turkey, which have both been hit by outbreaks of the highly pathogenic H5N1 strain, Bulgaria has been seen as a possible destination for the virus.

"Our teams found a wild swan in the Danube river near the town of Vidin. The tests on the swan showed it was infected with the H5 virus," Agriculture Minister Nihat Kabil told a news conference.

He said he had put his veterinary offices on high alert but said the discovery of one infected swan did not mean there was the danger of wider outbreaks.

"This was a single bird," he said. "There is no sign of any strange behaviour or massive deaths by wild birds."
