80 birds that fell from the sky in Quebec were poisoned!

veterinary news

Canada.com is reporting that 80 birds that were found dead on a farm just west of Quebec city were poisoned. They were poisoned because of a chemical called Fenthion which used to be used to control bird populations. The chemical was banned for use to kill birds in 1995, and for use as a cattle insecticide in 2008.

We still don’t know who is responsible.
