  • There are occasionally massive fish kills in the Gulf of Mexico. When I lived near Tampa, Fl, it was not uncommon to have thousands of fish wash up at a time. Sometimes it was blamed on red tide (which there has never been a definitive cause) but usually they just don't know. As much as we do know, there is still much that we don't know.

  • Yes. It happened in Arkansas and they believe they were struck by lightning during that big storm.

  • Or hail; or stress from fireworks; or ...who the heck knows...they're sending some of them off for testing to try to determine it; but several aviary experts said this is not that uncommon...

  • I remember the frog story that was so bizarre! LOL

    There have also been stories about it raining worms or fish or frogs in rare cases too - we think we are so smart but we have only the smallest understanding of the awesome power nature has and the insane things that can happen!

  • Arkanas. Why, they don't know yet. They have a few theories. Lighting, Fireworks, etc. It was only one species "The red wing black bird."

    Only a 100 miles away over a 100 drum fish died off too. Why they are looking into it.

    I'd like to know though.....

    there is a comment there that there is a chemical weapons arsenal nearby and it also could be the one to blame but so far no answers
