Dozens of birds dropping dead from sky at Turtle Lake, Canada
Gulls have been dropping from the sky at Turtle Lake, leading to an unsettling feeling for locals and campers coming across the dead young birds.
Suzy Fey Pilat has found dozens of the birds lying around the beaches of the lake, located about 240 kilometres northwest of Saskatoon. She’s also watched as the birds have fallen from the sky.
“It feels like you’re in a horror movie. It’s crazy.”
She said two weeks ago, forecasts called for a storm and winds as high as 100 kilometres an hour. While winds didn’t reach that level, she says shortly after that storm, she began finding dead birds on the beach.
“Every day, since the first day, we were finding 17, 18, 19, 20 dead ones,” she said.
“They’re dying everywhere.”
