100+ geese fall dead from sky after storm in Idaho, USA

Over 100 geese in Idaho were found dead Saturday night, and officials say the deaths are related to a severe thunderstorm that passed through the area.
 
The geese are believed to have fallen from the sky in unison in a “several hundred yard radius,” according to an officer with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.
 
“Several of the geese had their stomachs blown open and all of them were dead — none were injured,” said officer Jacob Berl.
 
Berl described the incident as a “freak accident.”
 
He told the Idaho State Journal that the ruptured stomachs and internal organs of the geese may have come from either the lightning or the impact of the crash.
