It’s unclear what caused this to happen and whether or not the birds were dead before hitting the ground.


Tsawwassen Birds Discovered

Vancouver resident Kevin Beech saw the dead birds on the ground and said they were in pools of blood.

Beech took a photo of what he saw and posted it on Facebook. It currently has 400 shares and counting.

Another witness says that the birds made a loop in the sky and then dived straight into the ground.

The birds were collected and sent to a laboratory for a post-mortem examination.
