Hundreds of dead birds line a road in Idaho, USA

The word that one state wildlife biologist uses is “disturbing.”
 
He’s referring to the possibly couple of hundred bird carcasses that line the gravel along both sides of South Cole Road, near CS Beef Packers south of Boise.
 
The birds are ring-billed gulls and California gulls, according to Bill Bosworth, a wildlife biologist with Idaho Fish & Game.
 
Thousands of gulls nest in a settling pond on private property southwest of the beef packing plant. The large number of bird deaths in recent years has concerned passersby and led some to wonder if they’re being poisoned by something in that pond or others nearby.
 
Bosworth said Fish & Game has been investigating, and they have determined two causes for the bird deaths.
