Italy is The Latest To Report Mystery Bird Deaths: Thousands Of Turtle Doves Fall Dead From Sky

     On Wednesday, GeaPress reported hundreds -- possibly thousands -- of dead and dying birds in Italy. Countless turtle doves were found scattered in the streets, in flower beds and hanging tragically from trees "like Christmas balls" in the town of Faenza. Many of the birds that fell dead from the sky were discovered with a mysterious blue stain in their beaks.

In the past week, similar incidents of mass animal deaths have been reported across the world. Thousands of dead birds fell from the sky in Arkansas on New Year's Eve, and similar incidents were reported on different days in Louisiana, Kentucky and Sweden. Two million fish were discovered dead in Maryland, with other fish kills also reported in Brazil, New Zealand and Arkansas -- approximately 100 miles from the bird incident. 40,000 crabs washed up on England beaches in the past few days, as well.

While the events are likely unrelated, most still remain a mystery. Officials suggest fireworks are likely responsible for many of the bird deaths and that unusually cold weather could be to blame for the strange mass deaths of fish and crabs.

  1. what is it with these half-arsed explanations I keep hearing about this very strange events of thousands of birds falling dead out of the sky---'fireworks'.....?? Since freakin when? I actually hate fireworks, and wouldn't miss them but what the hell--I keep hearing this ridiculous notion. I am confused then---DID these bird deaths-of them falling out of the sky ALL happen dead opn Neww years Eve when fireworks were set off. Does this not happen at NIGHT when birds aren't usually flying. IF it were fire=works why weren't there many MORE dead birds in the Millenium celebrations of 2000 when there were serious firework displays all over the world? OR is this constant explanation saying that people are using fireworks AFTER the clock turning mindnight--like all through the next day and after that?
    Here in the UK we have fireworks for WEEKS before Bonfire night (the main night for massive firework displays) and weeks after. I have NEVER heard of birds falling dead out of the sky. So WTF??

    Then the next explanation is 'the cold'--what does that MEAN. That all of a sudden WILD animals are killed by the cold. All of this crap is NOT making any sense is it?
