    Someone started this conversation at work the other day so I thought I'd throw it out there and start some discussion/theories on the topic.

    What are your thoughts regarding all the dead bird reports? Is this something that happens and just really wasn't reported until now, or do you think it's something else?

Either that, or (as someone else said) they're flying into invisible UFO's. :eek:

    Exploding Toads

    In 2005, Germany experienced one of the strangest animal deaths on record. Over 1,000 toads simply exploded for no apparent reason, splattering their gory intestines everywhere. According to a report from "The Independent" (U.K.), "The tabloid press went into overdrive, dubbing the carnage site in Hamburg's Altona district the 'Pond of Death' and warning children and dogs to stay away. Theories ran wild that toads were committing suicide or were croaking because of a virus spread by South American race horses." A zoologist autopsied the toads and discovered that they had been attacked by birds, and their livers eaten. The toad's natural body defenses caused them to puff up — and with their livers missing, gruesomely ex

    A bunch of birds just dropping dead? No gunshot wounds... Not battered up in any way... Huh, weird. That is pretty damn bizarre.
