An outbreak of a virus that can cause Newcastle Disease in birds may have been more limited in Voyageurs National Park than in other areas of Minnesota, according to Voyageurs National Park staff. A Lake Kabetogama island supporting a double-crested cormorant colony that tested positive for the virus will not be closed, according to a news release issued by the park Tuesday.
