More than 1,000 dead birds fall from sky in Ark

Jan 2, 2011 | Posted by: Inisa Love | Full story: news.yahoo.com

BEEBE, Ark. Wildlife officials are trying to determine what caused more than 1,000 blackbirds to die and fall from the sky over an Arkansas town.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said Saturday that it began receiving reports about the dead birds about 11:30 p.m. the previous night. The birds fell over a 1-mile area of Beebe, and an aerial survey indicated that no other dead birds were found outside of that area.

You would be correct IF "good for the environment" meant taking a non-native predatory species from another continent, bringing them to a land where they never were historically, and releasing them into the wild to reproduce largely unchecked by native predators, such as wolves and cougars, many of which were eradicated by man, and letting the introduced species indiscriminately kill native species, such as songbirds, by the billions that have few, if any, defenses against them; while the introduced species, at the same time, drastically reduces the number of prey species, such as mice and songbirds, causing our native predators, such as hawks and owls, to decline because of the shortage of prey caused by the alien.

I hit the jackpot with my trapping the last few days. I caught a opossum. a male fox. a beagle hound. Two large black mouth cur & very a large black furry dog. those dogs where about to harass my livestock ! Im certian they Where about to? Why else would they be digging & ducking under my woven wire fence and tresspassig on my land? I highly reccommend the ten inch body grip traps they are very effictive. No birds where harmed in my trapping adventures.

I don't blame you one bit. People should see after their pets. If one comes on my sons property it's dead by lead poisoning. He has cows, his own dogs and chickens. He doesn't want someone else's dogs or cats around either.
