Another local community is taking up the debate over whether or not to allow chickens within city limits.

Two Shanghai men have died from a lesser-known type of bird flu in the first known human deaths from the strain, and Chinese authorities said Sunday that it wasn't clear how they were infected, but that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission. A third person, a woman in the nearby province of Anhui, also contracted the H7N9 strain of bird flu and was in critical condition, China's National Health and Family Planning Commission said in a report on its website.

WINAMAC Another local community is taking up the debate over whether or not to allow chickens within city limits.

WKVI reports that the issue was raised at the Winamac town council meeting this week.

They tabled the discussion for a future meeting and plan to look into other communities' ordinances in the meantime.

South Bend began allowing chickens earlier this year.
