Dozens of Dead Birds Fall From the Sky in New Jersey
Officials say birds found by Millville residents were killed on purpose & legally
Residents in a Cumberland County community were left wondering Tuesday morning what caused dozens of birds to drop dead from the sky.
Residents along Peach Drive in Millville found at least 80 birds — mostly red-winged blackbirds — on the ground dead having fallen from trees and the sky. One neighbor even said he saw the birds falling out of the air.
“Crazy — something out of a movie,” said resident Michelle Cavalieri who saw the birds fall from the sky.
The birds caused a bloody mess on roadways in the residential neighborhood.
