Moscow citizens have noticed an unusual number of pigeons dying on the streets of the city, “Komsomolskaya Pravda” newspaper reports.
According to municipal service workers, the death of the pigeons always appears to be normal: a bird starts to turn around quickly and then falls to the ground. Moscow vets explain that such symptoms indicate vessel thrombosis. They believe that such problems may be caused by kidney and liver diseases, being the result of this summer’s abnormal heat wave in Moscow. Part of the pigeon population already died back then.
