The parrot Koki of the former Yugoslav leader Josip Broz Tito has been put under quarantine as a precautionary measure following the bird flu cases reported in Croatia, DPA reported. The Croatian media reported that Koki has been quarantined along with other birds in the northern Adriatic archipelago Brijuni, a former summer residence of Tito, who passed away back in 1980. Koki, who is a talking parrot, is a tourism attraction for all guests at Brijuni. He was a present for Tito. Earlier in the week the strain of the bird flu virus lethal to humans was found in Croatia. The virus, also known as avian flu, was discovered in wild swans found dead at a pond in eastern Croatia last week.World » Be a reporter: Write and send your article Expats.bg All Are Welcome!
