Lawmaker concerned about mass die off of crows in Kara-Balta, requests lab examination.

Lawmaker Bakirdin Subanbekov expressed concern about a mass die off of crows in Kara-Balta and requested government to carry out a lab examination to detect cause of death.

"From yesterday, media organizations reported a mass die off of crows in Kara-Balta. Locals are concerned that toxic substances might emit from the corpses," he said.

The State Environmental and Technical Safety Inspectorate blamed cold snap or hunger for die off, but the ornithologist from NAS (National Academy of Sciences) says hunger and cold cannot be a cause of death. "Perhaps, they were poisoned. I request the Government to carry out lab research and publish results to avoid panicking," he said.

Earlier, the AKIpress news agency received a number of photographs of dead crows from the locals who expressed concerns about the mass die off of black birds in the city.

Workers of Tazalyk, a Bishkek municipal waste management enterprise, said they did not find any dead crow while cleaning works on December 6.
