Falling birds likely died of trauma, Arkansas officials say

Thousands of birds that fell from the sky just before midnight New Year's Eve in Arkansas likely died from massive trauma, according to a preliminary report released Monday.

The birds - most of which were dead when they were found - were red-winged blackbirds and starlings, and they were found within a one-mile area of Beebe, about 40 miles northeast of Little Rock, the Arkansas Game and Fish
Commission said.

Keith Stephens, a spokesman for the commission, said the birds showed evidence of trauma in the breast tissue, blood clots in the body cavity and a lot of internal bleeding.

He cited a preliminary report conducted by the Arkansas Livestock and Poultry Commission.

    We are in the last days, this i do believe, all you have to do is open your eyes its not hard to see. The birds ? That i dont know ? Birds dont fall out of the sky for no reason. Now weither itd a government experiment/coverup or aliens or even God we may never know ? But i am 54 and am certian that i will see the distruction and the end of this world. OUR COUNTRY HAS TURNED ITS BACK ON GOD. We sre nothing but a modern day Sodam and Gamora. Be watching and dont be suprised because it could very well be tomorrow.

    More dead birds, This time in the state of Louisiana. How many times during the 4th of July have you heard of dead birds being found. And as for weather related trauma (hail or lightning) PPPleeeease. Now I'm a God fearing man, but lets look at this with some common sense people. You have a fish kill in a river (just drum) and along that river you have a lot of dead birds. Birds have to have water and they flock to bodies of water to drink (lakes, streams and rivers). There has to be a good explanation for this and what the media has posted is not good enough for me.

    So did u guys forget about The Core, Day After Tomorrow and 2012 amongst other movies??? This is a serious sign that the government will do its best to cover up for and make excuses for until its too late and the evidence is so right in our face that they won't have a choice but to disclose that information to us!!!

    I am just waiting to see if the official report will say that it has been proven without a doubt that the cause of all the dead birds was caused by a weather balloon. Remember the Roswell incident? Can we believe anything the government says anymore?
