Dead birds rain from sky over New Jersey

Dozens of dead birds littered the streets this week after plummeting from the New Jersey skies.

The incident is similar to other accounts of dead birds falling from the sky in recent times including one event in Maryland that saw hundreds of birds littering the side of a road earlier this year. A county spokesperson has attributed the most recent spate of deaths to granular pesticide spread in nearby farms while warning residents to avoid contact with the dead birds and to stay indoors.

Michelle Cavalieri had witnessed the birds dropping from the sky as it was happening. "Crazy - something out of a movie," she said. Another witness, Jim Sinclair, added "they’d get up and try and fly and they were out of control so they’d crash and fall again."

"Millville, New Jersey residents found 80 deceased birds littering their streets earlier this week."

Killing all of those birds would just increase the amount of insects in the area, no? I guess the next step would be to throw down even more pesticides. Makes you think about the effects all that has on the people who eat those crops. Poor birds.

When birds poop-in-a-group, it's inevitable that some of it lands on brethren wings. Raven to Flight Control "I'm losing stability, something hit my wings" Flight Control to Raven "Oh crap. I'll give your best wishes to mommy"

want to know what is causing all the animal deaths? When the deep water horizon caused oil to pollute the Gulf of Mexico, they decided to use an ancient bacteria that flourishes on oil, yet they think it mutated and is now killing any life it comes in contact with! here's the links! :http://www.naturalnews.com/031090_Gulf_of_Mexico_bacteria.html

If someone caused the deaths and does know why, you can bet your life the truth will not come out.

Yeah me and Simbi mentioned it on the first page. They blamed it on fireworks last time and now this time it's pestacides. Kind strange isn't it?
