Bird illness spreading in the Florida Keys
Officials say the doves are literally falling out of trees, seeming lethargic, wobbly and unable to fly straight. They typically die a half-hour to 24 hours later.
The director of the Marathon Wild Bird Center and the Key West Wildlife Center says she's seen a dozen dead doves in Marathon, and one to two dozen in Key West.
The director of the Upper Keys Wild Bird Center says several dozen doves have been found in the Upper Keys as well.
A necropsy on one of the carcasses is planned. Results are expected within days.
I have no idea what if anything this news might mean. But, castro has threaten for years to unleash biological warfare against the US using birds as a carrier.
I have never given much credence to such rhetoric.
But now that castro is on his last days, maybe he's going to try to take a few of us with him when he goes.
So keep that in mind.
