PRAGUE (Reuters) - The Czech Republic recorded an H5 bird flu outbreak at a small, non-commercial farm in the central region of the country, killing five geese of the nearly 30-bird flock, the State Veterinary Administration said on Tuesday.

The rest of the flock had to be culled and a protective perimeter was established around the farm to monitor poultry movements, the administration said.

It is the first bird flu case in the country since May.
