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.

My land my rules. Any feral housecat or free roaming dog is in danger if it sets one paw on my property. Pet or not, right or wrong, the anmals fault, the animals owners fault, my fault, nobodys fault, thats just the way it is. We have spent thousands of dollars and countless man hours premeter fencing our place with stout 39 inch woven wire fence. When something digs under my fence its not innocent its tresspassing. I set the 10 inch body grip traps at those locations. No bait or scent necessairy.

Strays are known disease carriers and a threat to small children, livestock and the elderly. There is but one simple solution and it happens around here a dozen times a day. People must learn that the time to "love" your dog is not after it's gone missing but before. Leashes and fences mean never having to say "I miss Buffy so much" and "my kids cry themselves to sleep every night".

Sure, that is the first thing I want to do. I want to hit a large dog in my car and tear something up. With a 1000$ deductible, it seems seriously redundant to hit a dog because it annoys me. I make decent money but really, not enough to piss it out the window. I realize that some people don't care what their cars look like and are perfectly happy to let them run around with dents. I work very hard to pay for mine, and while it isn't big and fancy, that is still time I have to spend away. Now that I have satisfied that tangent, I am leaving out compassion for the animal. It can not help that PEOPLE don't take care of it properly. If I saw you jay walking at the same time I went to work every day, would that make YOU fair game?

"People must learn that the time to "love" your dog is not after it's gone missing but before. Leashes and fences mean never having to say "I miss Buffy so much" and "my kids cry themselves to sleep every night"."

I've cited several examples of how a dog can get free, even when leashed and fenced. It's called an accident. NO human is perfect, nor are the things they make foolproof.

There might be some idiots and irresponsible people in your area, but they are not all deserving of losing their pets if one gets loose.

I respect the fact you spent alot of money and man hours building your fence, but holes can always be fixed. A life cannot be replaced.

I just looked out my back window and my two dogs are still in their fenced backyard. They have been there since 1999. NEVER got out. Interesting what a truly responsible pet owner can accomplish when he puts his mind to it. The sad thing is theses idiots will just go out and get another mutt so the same thing can happen again. I have seen it time and time again. Some people shouldn't have pets or kids..

Those dogs lived in a subdivision 1/2 mile away from my farm as the crow flies. Its one of those deals where they divided up a 640 acre farm into 10 acre (ranches) then the buyers put three house trailers on a ten acre parcel. Ive drove throught the subdivision and im here to tell you a proper dog enclosure is a rarity in the place. No dog accidently gets loose and immidiately comes to my place to harrass livestock and hopefully become caught by me & destroyed. More than likely they first came to my place when their owners where tresspassing while hunting. When you take your dog somewhere with you your giving him permission to tresspass. Of all the dogs I caught only one had a collar and rabies vaccination tag. The previous post I copyed & pasted isnt from my area. I posted it as a example of the mindset of many dog owners. They buy a few acres and then think now that I live in the country its OK to let my dog roam free. They really believe their dog isnt hurting anything.

You know they wanted John Wayne to play Matt Dillon and he declined. He was the one who suggested Arnez for the part. I hope I got that name correct.

James Arness. His brother was Peter Graves. I always liked the episode where Matt comes in on the stage carrying his saddle. Chester ask,s him did you get the man you where after Mr Dillon? Matt replied no he got away I killed my horse trying to catch him. And the very next episode Matt would be riding ole buck again. Ole buck had a lot of distance between his front legs. Very powerful chest mucles. He likely was part draft horse. probably Belgan. Made for a durable gentle horse but would be rough to ride. Buck was a big horse. However Dillon was so big he made buck look small in comparision whn mounted up.

That was one of the longest running series of all time. They just don't make them like that anymore. We as a people and country have strayed from what once made us great, solid core values, ethics and morals and, manners and close family ties. I am guilty at times also......

Why not just nuke everyone in the world? Then you can be assured that none of those people can ever kill an American!

Dude, THINK about what you're saying, okay? You make true conservatives sound like war mongers. And you don't put ANY consideration at all into the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. EVERY person has a right to a fair trial. You can't kill people and wipe out establishments just because you THINK they MIGHT kill an American SOMEDAY.

What if it was YOUR church, or YOUR Mosque, or YOUR child's day care center?

You obviously are home if you can look out your window. Some people go to work. My dogs are in the house when I leave, where I know they are safe. Well, as safe as can be expected anyway.

But some people leave their dogs outside. Even in a fenced yard, one can have a trespasser that leaves the gate open and lets the dog out. The meter reader could leave the gate open. A tree could fall on the fence. There are countless ways a dog can get out.

Even in the house, while I'm working, the other half could accidently let my dog out. If he has company when I'm not home, THEY could let the dog out. I told him I want NOBODY in my house when I'm not home, for that very reason, but I can't force him to obey my orders! He is a big boy, ya know.

Again, accidents happen. The dogs' death is NOT a just punishment.

I agree 100% that many of those people don't care. There are people near me with the same mindset that because they are in the country, they can let their dogs run. The dogs ARE hurting things, even on their own property, like my neighbors dogs. They should be dealt with on a case by case basis when they trespass.

That's enough to make one puke! They did that near me.(200 acres turned into 30+ homesites) After 7 homes were built, the economy tanked and people quit building. It's where I used to walk, bird and photograph nature for almost 20 years, with the owners permission, of course. The property recently changed owners, and the new residents (one resident anyway) complained about the lady with the camera walking around, so I quit going there.
