Default More dead birds...in Italy

Thousands of dead turtle doves, many of which had a "strange" blue stain inside their beaks, have crashed from the sky in Italy. They're the latest in a puzzling spate of birds, fish and other animals dying under mysterious circumstances around the world.

Residents of Faenza, Italy, described the fallen doves as lying in heaps on flowerbeds, crushed by machinery on the streets or "horribly hung from trees like Christmas balls," Italy's GeaPress reported today.

Initial testing of about 8,000 of the doves indicate the blue beak stain might be from lack of oxygen or poisoning. More conclusive test results may be available next week.

Just hours before the dove die-off, scientists in the U.S., Europe and Africa were debunking the conspiracy theories and "Aflockalypse" fears that have swirled around the mass bird and fish deaths in the past two weeks.

"This is a classic example of freak events coinciding," Petter Boeckman, a zoologist at the Norwegian Natural History Museum, told Reuters.

freak events coinciding? Give me a break

Dead birds in 2 areas of Arkansas, dead fish there all in certain radius's, then 2 million dead fish the day after in the Chesapeake, and now more dead birds in Italy all being freak event coincidences?

All of the scientific know it all explanations have been terrible and i bet they're wrong. They keep saying it happens all of the time but its funny how i never read it in the news.

Freak events like this have happened in the past. You have in the past sessions of depleted oxygen in the ocean that has killed thousands if fish if not more. I wouldn't panic and head to a fallout shelter just yet. It certainly should have people watching and asking questions though.

Doesn't seem to be a pattern though so that would point more towards a natural phenomenon of some type rather than a sinister plot or some man made chemical [military grade] being the culprit. I'll keep an open mind though.

How do you explain the radius of which these occurances are happening? Everything i've read has stated these have all occurred within certain radius's where they're finding so many fish and birds dead on the ground. If it were half the scientific explanations they would be more spread out. It would have to be a near immediate death for them to all die within the same proximity.

And i know it sounds crazy but i'm surprised at how everyone is blowing off how many UFO sightings there have been lately. Yes they have happened before but of late there have been numerous sighting as well as videos, and even Manu caught something on his camera phone and you know he isn't trying to pull a hoax.

Just some really weird stuff occurring as we approach 2012 thats all i'm saying....
