The poison that fell from the sky?

First it was several thousand birds that fell from the sky, now they are reporting an equally devastating fish kill in the same area. I'd say? that eliminates high altitude hail, fireworks and lightning as it concerns the fish.

I think they were sucked up into a major up-draft during one of our storms. Birds are more susceptible to lesser amounts of oxygen than humans I believe.

I've been told that miners used to carry small birds into the mines with them and if the bird passed out they knew that the oxygen level was getting too low.

That might explain the birds? But what happened to the fish?

I'm totally clueless about the fish!

If I recall correctly, the fish died first although the birds made the news first. The fish have no eyes in the pictures I've seen. So, the fish died and the birds plucked the eyes out. The eyes poisoned the birds somehow. Serioulsy, I have no real clue. I'm naturally suspicious. The last time something like this started, it resulted in "Swine Flu" vaccines, which continue to be mandatory for soldiers like myself.

And as of today? We have another large bird kill being reported on red winged black birds in Louisiana.
