(CAER DALLBEN, Prydain) – Taran, Eilonwy, and Fflewddur Flam were diagnosed with Swine Influenza this morning, reports High Prince Gwydion from the castle.  Taran, long known for his association with pigs, was likely the initial vector of the outbreak, and has succumbed to the disease, as has princess Eilonwy.  Flags will be flown at half-staff for a week according to the High King’s protocol office.

Medwyn, Prydain’s High Veterinarian, has examined samples taken from oracular pig Hen Wen and established that the strains of H1N1 are identical to those of Taran, Eilonwy, and Fflewddur Flam.  Flam was further diagnosed as being "too irritating to die," according to Gwydion, and is expected to make a full recovery.  Farmers Aeddan and Llassar have also been diagnosed with the flu but are recovering.
