2014-11-26 - Around 30 crows have seizures and die in parks in Portland (Oregon):

Quote: "Police say 30 dead crows have been found in downtown Portland parks after reports they were having seizures. A police spokesman says there's no apparent reason for the deaths."

Quote: "The birds were found Wednesday morning in three areas: Governor Tom McCall Waterfront Park along the Willamette River, the Chapman and Lownsdale squares set among government buildings a few blocks west of the river, and at the nearby Lovejoy Fountain. Firefighters reported finding no hazardous materials in the air, and officers who checked the area said they found nothing that would have been fatal to the birds."

Note: So they all died near bodies of water then - not surprising. Hydrogen sulfide is neurotoxic and can cause seizures leading to death. It's also water-soluble and tends to accumulate in all the same places that water does, since it's a heavier-than-air gas. Plenty of people have been having seizures and/or dying too, sometimes while driving. These birds most likely got poisoned by contaminated water or by touching stuff (leaves, sticks, branches, etc) that had adsorbed hydrogen sulfide as it blows by. Best not to touch anything you don't have to, especially outdoors, lest you collapse and die too...

Quote: "So whatever set Scooter off must have been highly unusual, and it must have happened right under his nose."

Note: If a horse gets hit by a whiff if hydrogen sulfide - literally under his nose - this might very well be the result. People don't tend to last as long as this horse did, but then people are smaller than horses so it takes less to bring down a human...
