Cornwall ON – Pretty picture of Arkansas on the left, but something not so pretty is happening in the US state. Flocks of dead birds and thousands of dead fish are all occuring at once.
The state that gave us Bill Clinton and Walmart seems to be having an environmental chain of events that’s of cause for concern as it impacts the whole food chain which of course eventually effects people.
The Arkansas Fish and Game Commission (AFGC) said it began receiving reports of the falling birds at about 2330.
By midnight, more than 1,000 red-winged blackbirds had fallen in one area of the city of Beebe.
Arkansas officials are investigating the death of an estimated 100,000 fish in the state’s northwest, but suspect disease was to blame, a state spokesman said Sunday.
Ozark is about 125 miles west of the town of Beebe, where game wardens are trying to find out why up to 5,000 blackbirds fell from the sky just before midnight New Year’s Eve.
Scientists are reporting that the two events were not connected, but no answers or conclusive data has been released yet.
