Any thoughts on the fish and birds that died in Arkansas?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Tue Jan 04, 2011 6:26 pm


An
estimated 500 red-winged blackbirds and starlings were found dead in
Louisiana, a local newspaper reported – just a few days and a short
distance away from where thousands more plummeted to their death in
Arkansas.


The blackbirds in Louisiana littered a
quarter-mile stretch of a state highway in Point Coupee Parish, near the
city of Labarre, the Advocate reported Monday.


Biologists are sending some of the birds
found at Labarre to laboratories in Georgia and Wisconsin for testing.
It was not immediately clear what caused their deaths.


The mysterious mass bird deaths was just 360
miles to the south of Beebe, Ark., where up to 5,000 blackbirds fell
from the sky over the holiday weekend.


Investigators believe that celebratory
fireworks caused the caused the birds to rain down onto homes and cars
in Beebe before ultimately falling to their deaths.

A worker with United States Environmental Services LLC
tosses a dead bird off of a home in Beebe, Ark. Wildlife officials are
trying to determine what caused more than 1,000 blackbirds to die and
fall from the sky over the Arkansas town.

But the actual reason for their death might never be known for sure, officials say.


So for the small town of Beebe, Ark., where
New Year's revelers spent the holiday weekend cleaning up between 4,000
and 5,000 dead blackbirds, The Mystery of Why the Birds Fell Out of the
Sky remains unsolved.


It's unclear if the mass deaths in both states are connected.


In Arkansas, some speculated that a bout of
bad weather was to blame. Others said one confused bird could have led
the group in a fatal plunge. A few spooked school kids even guessed that
the birds had committed mass suicide.


"There was probably some physical reason,
but I doubt anyone will ever know what it was," said Thurman Booth, the
state's wildlife services director.


The birds were the second mass wildlife
death in Arkansas in recent days. Last week, about 83,000 dead and dying
drum fish washed up along a 20-mile stretch of the Arkansas River,
about 100 miles west of Beebe. Wildlife officials say the fish deaths
are not related to the dead birds, and that because mainly one species
of fish was affected, it is likely they were stricken by an illness.
Full test results could take up to a month.


While officials examine bird carcasses in
Arkansas for signs of disease and labs test the contents of their
stomachs for toxins, the tale of the blackbirds' tumble is quickly
turning into the stuff of local legend.


The blackbirds rained onto rooftops and
sidewalks and into fields. One struck a woman walking her dog. Another
hit a police cruiser. Some say an umbrella was one resident's only
protection from the falling birds.


Birds were "littering the streets, the
yards, the driveways, everywhere," said Robby King, a county wildlife
officer in Beebe, a community of 5,000 northeast of Little Rock. "It was
hard to drive down the street in some places without running over
them."

weird that they fall dead out of the sky, if they were sick ,surely they would not have taken to the skies in the first place must have been something that happened sudenly,or they fed on contaminated food that took a little while to affect them .as stated in the article, we may never know, but also, we may never be told .

There are a few theories or ideas going around.. omen and prophecy, mass suicide for 2012 ( don't ask!), maybe government, the weather conditions, etc..
I believe we're never going to be told anything much. I could be wrong.

I would think there is a logical explanation. A hail storm, perhaps, or lightning storm, or something like that. Or it could even be related to New Year celebrations, such as shock from either fireworks or shotgun blasts in the air.

you are NOT wrong!! i have done a little research ,to verify some statements that our prime minister, Julia Gillard , was quoted as saying ....and one thing led to another ,as it does on the net,and quite frankly, i'm still in shock, our politicians have been,lying,cheating, selling us since at LEAST (no doubt it has ALWAYS been that way ) the mid 70s , and i have not even scratched the surface yet !!
as for 2012 ,the end of a cyle in the mayan calender, it's just that ,the end of a cycle, like new years eve,(only a much longer cycle) the end of our yearly cycle.if anything drastic does happen , it will happen regardless.
yes, we are living in incertain times,a 20 minute news broadcast will verify that, and ,theories abound, but nobody KNOWS , believes maybe .....

I feel sure there's a logical explanation.
Maybe they were on the Obamacare healthplan! giggle

There are more birds and fish showing up all over... Florida, Kentucky, Sweden....
When this happened in Russia... the government admitted to it and said it was basically population control.... if I remember correctly. Will see if I can find that particular one.
