Bird mystery widens

by Dege Legg

More bird and fish die-offs from around the world.

The mystery of the birds continues as more dead birds have been found in Kentucky and Sweden. This follows the initial reports of 5,000 dead birds found in Arkansas on Dec. 31 and 500 in Labarre, La., on Jan. 3.

On Jan. 5, it was reported that hundreds of dead birds were found on the streets of Murray, Ky., making this the second time this week following a report of dead birds in Gilbertsville, Ken. that that dead birds have been found in the state.

Autopsies performed in Sweden indicate that 100 jackdaws had no signs of infection or other illnesses and died of "severe internal bleedings caused by external blows," which is a conclusion similar to that found in Arkansas tests of dead birds found there on New Year's Eve.

In possibly unrelated news depending on your conspiratorial mindset it was reported on Jan. 3 that 100,000 fish died in the Arkansas River. In addition, massive fish die-offs have been reported in New Zealand, Australia and Brazil.

All of this has fueled enormous amounts of conspiratorial speculation, much of it having to do with the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP). Jointly funded by the US Air Force, the US Navy, the University of Alaska and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), HAARP is a highly secretive ionospheric research program designed to enhance radio communications and surveillance technology such as missile detection. With distrust of the U.S. government at an all time high, many conspiracy theorists hypothesize that HAARP is being used in secret government testing along with chemtrails for weather modification, global warming and even population control.

Other suspected causes of the bird and fish die-offs include extreme weather, fireworks, the after effects of the BP oil spill clean up and even a possible collision with a UFO.
