Police say 10,000 hens suffocate in Kosovo chicken farm during power outage The Associated PressPublished: June 6, 2008
PRISTINA, Kosovo: Authorities in Kosovo say 10,000 hens suffocated in a chicken farm following a power outage.
Police say the birds were left airless when a night guard fell asleep and failed to turn on the backup generator when the power went out. The damage to the private business in Kosovo's west is estimated at €50,000 (US$77,000). Most of the carcasses have been buried on instructions from health officials, while some are being checked Friday for possible health hazards.
Kosovo's economy has struggled to recover since the end of the war between ethnic Albanians and Serbs in 1998-99, and power outages are a daily occurrence.
This sounds suspicious to me I have seen chicken farms and they are usualy huge sheds that have air pumped in so the smell is pumped out it would take months for it to get that bad that the hens would suffocate...this sounds to me like the bird flu ?
if it is bird flu then 10 000 chickens cant die in one night.
cover up to what? cmon man rest it for a sec. Life it is not all intrigue... chit happens for real and not necessary has a complot behind all the time. Relax and lets pray for this chickens spirit they get to go to heaven ;D

Kralj Vatra: Churchill was the real mega-butcher, yet accusing anything british/saxon will most probably yield a jail sentence. Hitler killed less people than Churchill. British were always more efficient than Germans where death and chaos came into play.
