An end of the week storm is the speculated guilty party behind a strange occurrence that saw in excess of 60 geese tumble from the sky – dead.
An intense tempest that created lightning, golf ball-estimate hail and even generated a tornado in Bingham County pulverized the Idaho Falls region Saturday.
In the midst of beating precipitation and blinding flashes, something greater and heavier began falling to the ground. East Idaho News reports in excess of 60 dormant geese came smashing down out of the sky.
The greater part of the feathered creatures tumbled from above in the meantime and arrived in a similar general zone.
Idaho Fish and Game officer Jacob Berl thinks the consistency of the passings recommends the winged creatures were struck by lightning. Berl says he got 48 snow geese and three ross geese. More were on close-by rooftops.
As per Berl, a portion of the fowl had their stomachs blown open, yet most of the creatures were uninjured.
While occasions like this are unimaginably odd, they’re not extraordinary. Lightning storms far and wide have been known to fell feathered creatures.
