Birds fell dead in thousands from the skies and millions of fish died mysteriously recently in parts of the world. Fireworks, sudden change in temperature and stormy weather had been blamed for these strange goings on, but an approaching Doomsday sounds like a more plausible explanation to this Aflockalypse. After all animals are a lot more sensitive and prescient to impending events and planetary rumblings than humans, normally being the first to make a dash for it when some natural disasters are about to take place. No doubt those birds that died en masse in mid flight, or the fishes that suddenly went belly up in the millions all suffered massive heart attack at the sight of the pale horseman casting his shadow in the horizon or the signal of an Alien attack.
Scientists are trying to make light of these events, saying they were not such rare occurrences, but then that's probably typical of government cover-up attempt in the face of weird phenomenons. Having dead birds raining down from the heavens is about as natural as the Biblical plague of locusts. For all we know the mass deaths of these poor creatures were the works of some mischievous Aliens or a scientific experiment gone wrong. Or of course the End of the World, which if we follow the Mayan calendar, is due to come the end of next year.
