UPDATE: Romanian Starlings Died Because of Cold, Claim Forensics

The veterinarian pathologists who examined the dead bodies of the 32 starlings found dead on Saturday morning in Constanţa, Romania, have announced their verdict: the birds died because of the frost. “All the birds were dehydrated after the freezing weekdays that preceded. We found nothing in their stomach or in their goiters. The sterlings showed no symptoms”, stated Romeo Lazăr, the director of the Constanţa Sanitary-Veterinarian Direction. Further tests were to be conducted on Monday. A toxicology and a virus examination should eliminate any doubts about the birds’ deaths. Doctors do no think that the death of the starlings is in any way connected with the case of swine food and mouth disease recently discovered in neighbouring Bulgaria.
