Misterious animal deaths.

Post  Lisa Ella Humenberger on Thu Jan 06, 2011 10:10 pm

As you may have noticed in the news, over 3,000 birds have fallen from the skies of Arkansas on New Years Eve. Birds also fell from Kentucky and Louisiana, but that's not all. Fifty birds also fell in Sweden and many fish were washed ashore in Brasil. Crabs were also found dead on shore in England. No one has a reasonable explanation yet but everyone is just asking the same question: ''What the heck is going on?''

Fifteen service workers helped clean the town in Arkansas with picking u 2,000 red-winged blackbirds. Witnesses say that the birds who managed to survive acted as if they were drunk. Laboratory reports indicate that the birds might have died from Trauma AGFC, since residents commented that they heard what was like fireworks before the birds started littering the street, rooftops, and yards. However another theory is that a thunderstorm might have scared the birds to death since there was a tornado in Arkansas December 31st, but they still arent sure what the cause really was.

What do you think happened to the birds?

well it is very interesting what is happening to the birds. i will say the birds are dying of a sickness or bacteria that is produces the deaths of the birds. it can also be because of the climate change or because the air is contaminated of all this bad things. cyclops Shocked

A lot of weird thing happens in present time. I think it wasn't something that simple as thunderstorms or fireworks , probably something much more complicated.

Well there is a simple explanation - fireworks. I don't know why is everybody making such a big problem of that. Fireworks explain everything: the bright light confuses them and they can crash into something. The sound alone can kill a bird if it is close to the place where the fireworks explode. The shockwave can kill many birds at all. And the fish? Well, maybe when the waste of the fireworks might be poisonous for fish and when it falls in the ocean it might poison them or make it difficult to breathe for them.

Well the most reasonable explanation is the fireworks like Hristo says. Fire works are really loud and bright so it may have caused the death of the birds. If it wasnt the fireworks maybe some disease is infecting the birds and making them die.
