Mystery of hundreds of dead birds falling from the sky finally solved

Interesting…

If you cast your mind back to December, you’ll remember we brought you some mysterious news from North Wales, when hundreds of birds fell out of the sky.

The starlings were found dead on a road in Anglesey on Tuesday December 10th 2019, after being spotted by Hannah Stevens.

According to Miss Stevens, a ‘massive flock’ flew overhead before eating something in the road – they died an hour later.

When Miss Stevens got home she told her partner, Dafydd Edwards, who went down to investigate. Mr Edwards told North Wales Live: “I counted 150 last night but I gave up as there’s just hundreds of them littered everywhere. It’s as if they just dropped down dead from the sky.

“She said she saw hundreds of them flying over and thought it looked amazing but on her way back around an hour later they were all dead in the road. I didn’t believe her so I went to see for myself. It’s very strange, I can’t put my finger on it.”

The North Wales Police’s Rural Crime Team counted 225 dead birds in the road, with some in the hedges alongside it – although bizarrely none of the birds landed in the fields either side.

Officers have now posted an update on the situation, revealing what they think happened to the birds.

In the series of tweets, they start by saying that although the toxicology report isn’t back, they’re ‘quite sure of the reasons and cause of deaths to the birds’.

They continue: “All examined birds had severe internal trauma from impact… The trauma supports the case that the birds died from impact with the road.

“It’s highly likely the murmuration took avoiding action whilst airborne, from possibly a bird of prey with the rear of the group not pulling up in time and striking the ground.

“We still await toxicology, but from speaking to many people, looking at the injuries and previous world wide cases it appears by taking avoiding flight action the murmuration has flown towards the ground and pulled up, but some have not made it”.

Police believe that if the birds had been poisoned, they’d all have been affected by it at different times.

Cadbury has confirmed its chocolate should be kept in the cupboard not the fridge

This is just WRONG!

Cadbury has finally settled the debate of whether its chocolate should be kept in the fridge or the cupboard, and its bad news for people who keep it in the fridge…

Like many things (ketchup), I firmly believe that chocolate should be kept in the fridge, but many people believe it should be in the cupboard. 

Well, finally Cadbury has settled the debate – I still believe it’s wrong, though. 

Taking to Twitter, Cadbury Australia was asked the question directly and they responded with a perfectly reasonable excuse for keeping it in the cupboard.

According to the tweet: “Chocolate should always be stored in a slightly cool, dry, dark place such as cupboard or pantry at temperatures less than 21°C to ensure the quality isn’t compromised.”

The company responded to a Twitter user, Bruno, who created a definitive list of what belongs in the fridge or cupboard.

According to Bruno, chocolate along with soy sauce, eggs, avocado, tomatoes and Champagne (completely disagree with this one) should be kept in the cupboard. He also put oil in the fridge which I just can’t wrap my head around. 

Bruno does, however, think Ketchup should be in the fridge, so at least we can agree on that. 

How do you like your chocolate, ice-cold or a bit melted from the cupboard? Let us know in the Facebook comments.

Dogs separated at birth bump into each other on a walk and instantly start hugging

This is so cute!!

Two dogs who were separated as puppies bumped into each other on a walk and shared a hug.

If you are one of the many people who are blessed to have found a best friend in a dog, I am, like the rest of the dog-less population, incredibly jealous of you. 

It’s pretty normal behaviour for doggos to get excited when they see another furry little friend. Their inquisitive tails will start wagging wondering if this other pup will be a friend or a foe.

Well in this unusual and heartwarming case, the other dog was very much a friend.

Two cockapoos, Monty and Rosie, were born in the same litter last June and when they bumped into each other recently in the park, they hugged each other as if they had been reunited.

Rosie’s owner Susan Killip told the Dodo: “There were six of them, but Monty and Rosie were always together.” 

Susan added: “It was so lovely, they both just jumped up and hugged each other. It was amazing they remembered each other after 10 months of not seeing each other.”

But we’re not the only ones touched by the reunion. When twitter user Libby shared the reunion her dad messaged her about, the Tweet when viral with over 900,000 likes. 

Susan said the owners are planning on keeping in touch, although it’s ‘a bit difficult at the moment,’ they plan on having ‘doggy walkies together’ when this is all over.

Experts have debated whether it is even possible for dogs to recognise each other like this. Although dogs of the same breed often gravitate towards each other, Tufts University says ‘we’ll probably never know for sure’ if dogs can process a familial connection like this.

It sure does look like they can with that beautiful hug!

Images have surfaced of a KFC car park covered in litter from the takeaway chain, sparking outrage on social media. 

A KFC in Bury has reopened following the new guidelines, but it’s caused disgust online when the retail park it is located in was left covered in empty KFC boxes.

This comes just days after KFC reopened its chains across the country. The photos were taken by a key worker who expressed his disappointment and ‘disgust’ at the public for leaving the car park in such a state.  

Hundreds of people have responded to his tweet expressing their concerns and similar disgust.

One used wrote ‘should forcibly close them down again’, while another said ‘there is no excuse for dropping litter anywhere, but this is disgusting behaviour’. 

The fast-food giant reopened their stores on March 23rd, with many people rejoicing in the fact they could now get their hands on some fried chicken. 

It appears it is not the only KFC with a litter problem, with one Twitter user explaining that the ‘one near us in Rochdale was the same’.
