Bird & fish kills in NW Arkansas

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — WildArkansas @ 11:41 pm

Mysterious bird and fish kills in NW Arkansas appear to be a mystery to most authorities–at the moment.

The estimated five-thousand birds appear to have died New Year’s eve (in a one mile radius of Beebee) just before midnight and though some have embarrassingly suggested fireworks or weather as a stressor causing the mass night flight of (non-predatory) birds that are not nocturnal, that does not explain the massive trauma and blood clots suffered by the birds just before they dropped to the ground dead.

Just west of Beebee an estimated one-hundred thousand fresh water drum were found dead along the Arkansas River. Authorities are reporting that the birds and fish are unrelated.

But just as a speculative note: Freshwater drum are the only fish with an earbone and from the massive injuries suffered by the red-wing blackbird population, there is a hint of suspicion that some kind of sonic experimentation may be the cause.

Just to deepen the mystery, another set of dead birds were found in Louisiana this morning.
