Thousands of Birds and Fish Drop Dead in Arkansas on New Year

New York City may have had the glitziest ball drop to ring in the New Year, but Beebe, Arkansas, took the cake in the weird department: shortly before midnight, thousands of blackbirds began dropping dead out of the sky!

Around 11 that night, thousands of red-winged blackbirds began falling out of the sky over this small city about 35 miles northeast of Little Rock. They landed on roofs, roads, front lawns and backyards, turning the ground nearly black and terrifying anyone who happened to be outside. [...]

The cause is still being determined, but preliminary lab results from the Arkansas Livestock and Poultry Commission revealed “acute physical trauma” in samples of the dead birds. There were no indications of disease, though tests were still being done for the presence of toxic chemicals.

Adding to the mystery, over 100,000 fish washed up dead on the banks of the Arkansas River, near Ozark - about 125 miles from Beebe:

Travis Harmon of the Department of Environmental Quality said: 'Barges reported passing up river and churning up dead fish from the bottom of the river.

'A single species is killed, and we don't know the cause. If it was toxic, other species would be affected.'


So, is this a premonition of sort for 2011? What do you think killed all those birds and fish? What's going on, Arkansas?

Right, Britani. That must be the most logical explanation.

There's clearly something funky going on, but I am over nine-thousand percent sure it isn't some angry sky daddy ghost trying to tell us something. Give me a break.

if people would just pick up a bible!!!! Look at the signs!! Their not dying cause of polluted air or toxic oceans. It's Jesus trying to tell us something! We all have our religions and beliefs, but this is my opinion.
