More than 50 dead geese fall from Idaho sky in 'freak accident'

A gaggle of geese was found dead in a parking lot in Idaho Falls, Idaho, in what wildlife officials are calling a "freak accident." The 51 birds were clumped together, soaking wet, as golf ball-sized hail rained down on them during a thunderstorm Saturday night.

But it's not the hail that killed the birds as the migrated north, officials with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) said -- it's most likely lightning that caused them to fall from the sky.

"I don't think it was the hail or wind," James Brower, regional volunteer services coordinator with IDFG, told Fox News. "Hail would have injured the geese. They'd still be alive. All of these were dead. When the officer arrived nothing was moving or twitching."
