People are baffled with the news of thousands of birds that fell dead from the sky in Arkansas this past weekend. The AP reports that a freak weather event like lightning or hail could be responsible for killing the countless blackbirds, or that New Year's fireworks may have startled the birds, notorious for their poor eyesight, and led them into the ground. Disease or poison were also suggested as possibilities, though evidence suggests they are less likely.
Given another strange incident of thousands of fish recently dying in Arkansas, Paul Watson and Alex Jones suggest secret government weapons testing may be responsible for the birds' deaths. If that's the case, maybe it could even be aliens that are accountable!
