It was God's punishment for there being a limit on the strength of beer than can be sold there.

How come no one ever says that Obama's seemingly random and ineffective attempts to destroy America are all part of God's plan to punish us for allowing the gays he created to exist?

FTFA: It is likely that the dying eagles recently migrated to Utah from other states.

They migrated because they are gay. This is indeed a case of God's wrath smiting these perverted eagles who make a mockery of American values.
 
2013-12-20 07:43:30 PM  
There is a mass die off of grebes out on the salt lake as well, although it is a yearly event. Perhaps the eagles are scavaging the carcasses and succumbing to the illness for some reason.

I live in a state where teh gheys can marry, and I regularly see healthy bald eagles. Once saw a tree with about 8 of them just hanging out. So, suck it, Utah.

You are making an assumption that he created them.  If they are a giant transmogrification based on a choice, then they are just a symptom.

oh.. dont forget to prove that the eagles arent because of the gheys...

Look beyond the obvious.

When there was a massive vulture die-off in India, they spent a great deal of time looking for chemical poison (pesticides, heavy metals) and then disease agents (mutated viruses, bacteria), because those seemed most logical. Nothing was found. Then it was discovered that the die-off coincided with a switch in pain-killing drugs given to elderly cattle in India, which interacts in an unusual way with vulture liver enzymes. It doesn't affect mammals, or, strangely enough, smaller carrion birds like crows--only vultures because of some chemical in their digestive acids. By the time this was discovered, the vultures had suffered nearly a 90% population reduction, and they may be irretrievable.

Point being, it may not be anything nearly as obvious as pesticides or runoff in the obvious places. It could be something brand-new, or unique to the region, or, like the cattle pain-killer, something thought to be completely safe.

What way does Fox spin this if the eagles are killed by fracking waste water.
 
2013-12-20 08:37:33 PM  
It sounds like something those people would do. You know they're the ones behind those windmills that kill even more eagles, don't you?

"Have you ever seen an eagle flying back to his home with dinner for the Mrs. and all the little eagle babies. And he's flying against the wind and he's flying in the rain and he's flying through bullets and all kinds of hell, and then right at that moment when he's about to get back to his nest, he says, "What the fark, it's a drag being an eagle" and right then two little x'es comes across his eyes just like in the old fashion cartoons. And he goes plunging down, and down and down and BAM. He's just a splatter of feathers and then we don't have the national bird of America no more. Did you ever see that?"

If no one has alleged that than someone needs to go check on that westboro guy make sure hes still breathing.
 
2013-12-20 09:44:49 PM  
obama gave those dopey taxpayer subsidized wind farms a pass to kill as many eagles as they want with no penalties. What a shame Barry, what a shameful anti American anti eagle thing to do.

There was a bunch of elk that died down in that part of the country recently too. I seem to recall it was natural causes, something about algae...

Nope. Not bordering on idolatry at all.

And, you know, nothing ironically poetic about making a mascot out of a carrion-eater. No sir.
