Scientists say a new strain of Bird Flu could theoretically pose a threat to humans. Harbor seals with the H3N8 strain started washing up on the east coast last fall. The seals had severe pneumonia and skin lesions and more than 160 of them died. The researchers say the virus jumped from birds to the seals. Other strains of bird flu have spread to humans before.
