11:00 AM -- Forget bird flu. Here's a serious health alert from the U.K.'s Telegraph Website:

    A former pet shop worker has been awarded £700,000 in damages after being left wheelchair-bound through a virus he caught from a parrot.

    Glyn Atherton, 35, won a six-year battle for compensation after he contracted the rare condition psittacosis from an African grey called Jack.
Jack, we're told, is still "resting."
