I am surprised that there are still people who deny this ever occurs...but then again, there are people who still believe the Earth is flat, so I
probably shouldn't be surprised. These types of occurrences have been documented for centuries, as the thread writer notes. I do not feel that these
events are all that strange, although they are rare, because there are natural phenomena to explain them. As noted, all of the cases of water-dwelling
creatures falling from the sky seem to occur near bodies of water where the creatures in question dwell.
I would not be concerned over events like these unless the animals coming down were found nowhere in the immediate vicinity. Say, if it were raining
kangaroos in Montana. The most likely explanation is that these creatures are picked up by extremely heavy wind gusts, or waterspouts or tornadoes,
which either carry them a short distance, or launch them an extended distance, where they seem to materialize from the sky. I am relatively certain
that these natural forces, being somewhat random in nature, would statistically not be able to carry or send these creatures very far from the point
where they originated.
However, what I am speaking of is only a general explanation, and although I think it would suffice for most of these occurrences, I would be willing
to bet that there are exceptions. Such as, like I mentioned, creatures that do not originate in the immediate vicinity of where they end up. If, in
these scenarios, tornadoes or similar natural phenomena were witnessed, that is probably the explanation...This is because the tornado would have to
have covered a fair expanse of ground to move the creatures such a distance, therefore the tornado would be less likely to go unnoticed.
But for events where these criteria are not met, all I can say is that they would have to be handled on an individual basis. But I am fairly confident
that very few, if any, cases exist where a natural explanation does not suffice. I also believe that some type of energy vortex that has yet to be
documented is not out of the realm of possibility, and something of this nature could contribute to these incidents. If these forces do exist however,
they must be relatively rare, otherwise there is a high likelihood that they would have been documented already.
