Yeah, as I posted a little while ago, I know my dog has been acting very strangely, won't let me out of her site, following me around everywhere I go, which is odd because she's usually pretty mellow. And she keeps walking outside and whining, like she's trying to get me to leave the house? I don't know, not saying it's related in any way, just a little out of character.
Bird Death - a
FALKÖPING / LONDON. The call to the provincial veterinary officer arrived at eleven o'clock in the day.
- A professional driver called and told me that he drove over a large flock of jackdaws last night on the road in question, says Christer Olofsson Rescue Service told Aftonbladet.
And so can the mystery of bird death in Falkirk have been resolved.
The man, who is a professional driver, was riding with his truck last night at Wetter Lin Street in Falkirk.
Suddenly he saw about 70 birds, which he said was alive and probably bald said the salt put on the road.
- He ran over a lot of them and did not think it was any big deal then, but realized today that it attracted attention not only in the Swedish media, but also abroad, "says Christer Olofsson.
Few external damage
But according to police, the majority of birds are not physically damaged, which contradicts that they would become victims of some form of "truck massacre".
Länsveterinär Robert ter Horst, who sent the birds to the National Veterinary Institute, says that the professional driver's theory is "possible", but that further exploration of broad.
- The birds are very busy right now due to the cold and poor food availability. There have also been reports of fireworks in the area the night before. It may scare the birds, "he told Aftonbladet.
Perhaps the fireworks?
Niclas Holmqvist on the Swedish Hunters Association says he, too, that it is possible that a firework had the birds out of balance.
- They look very bad and spend nights in trees or on rooftops. If there are fireworks they are looking for so flat surfaces as possible, like roads.
The birds may thus have been frightened and dizzy from the fireworks, flying blind to the road with clattering hearts, where some of them then died of horror and some of them died of the vehicle.
But another option that Niclas Holmqvist lists as possible is that the birds somehow been poisoned.
- Then they lose balance, fall down from the trees, wobbling back and eventually die, "he says.
Continued high security
Christer Olofsson Rescue Service emphasizes that the security measures surrounding the dead birds will remain high until the results come from SVA.
- They are stored in five sealed bags in a special cold room and all the clothes that had been in contact with them will be washed thoroughly and sprites. We also urge adults to keep children and dogs in the area for additional supervision, "says Christer Olofsson.

Hmmm, if you attach a strong magnet to a bird, could you get it to fly somewhere else?
