The mass death of a flock of birds in a small Swedish town was to be investigated by veterinarians on Wednesday, local media reported.
Some 50, perhaps as many as 100, dead jackdaws were found on a street in the south-western town of Falkoping late Tuesday evening, reports said, DPA reported.
The area has been cordoned off, Perry Malmberg of the emergency services told Swedish TV.
A few days ago, several thousand dead birds were found in the US state of Arkansas. One theory was that those birds had been shocked by New Year fireworks.
