The Leadoff - Tuesday 6/21/22

WGLT'S the Leadoff is everything you need to know for Tuesday, June 21. Most of the 51 firearms stolen last year were from a store, according to the Bloomington Police Department. But they say gun owners should still take steps to responsibly store firearms when not in use. Plus, the avian flu impacted birds at Miller Park Zoo, backyard poultry operations and more. Correspondent Tim Alexander talks to the state's top animal doc about the respiratory disease's impact on Illinois.
