It what is still considered a mystery by some, it is believed that the new year's celebratory fireworks from the small town of Beebe, Ark., likely sent thousands of dumbfounded blackbirds into such agitation that they crashed into homes, cars and each other before plummeting to their deaths in central Arkansas. Or so say the scientists.

This isn't the first mass wildlife death in the area: a few weeks earlier, about 83,000 dead and dying drum fish washed up along a 20-mile stretch of the Arkansas River, about 100 miles west of Beebe.

But, alas, the plot thickens. And thickens....
