More Than 1,000 Dead Birds Plunge From Sky in Arkansas

Friday it was a slew of dead fish in Arkansas and now there are dead birds dropping all over the place in Arkansas. Not to mention the bad storms and earthquakes over there recently....Am I the only one who sees something wrong with this picture???

BEEBE, Ark. -- (SOURCE) Wildlife officials are trying to determine what caused more than 1,000 blackbirds to die and fall from the sky over an Arkansas town.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said Saturday that it began receiving reports about the dead birds about 11:30 p.m. the previous night. The birds fell over a 1-mile area of Beebe, and an aerial survey indicated that no other dead birds were found outside of that area.

Commission ornithologist Karen Rowe said the birds showed physical trauma, and she speculated that "the flock could have been hit by lightning or high-altitude hail." (Duh, of course they're going to show signs of physical trauma they're falling from the SKY! HELLO! And as far as high altitude that I say HAIL NO!!! Next!)

The commission said that New Year's Eve revelers shooting off fireworks in the area could have startled the birds from their roost and caused them to die from stress. (Uh huh... You buyin' this??? Cuz Im not.)

Robby King, a wildlife officer for the agency, collected about 65 dead birds, which will be sent for testing to the state Livestock and Poultry Commission lab and the National Wildlife Health Center lab in Madison, Wis.

Rowe said that similar events have occurred elsewhere and that test results "usually were inconclusive." She said she doubted the birds were poisoned. (Yeah I doubt it too. Call HAARP and ask them what kind of experiments they've been running in that area without informing the public. All you have to do is mention two words...electromagnetic fields and they'll more than likely respond with two words....No Comment!)
