Officials confirmed Tuesday that the birds were found last week and noted a team of avian experts has again been dispatched to the area to determine what happened. It’s believed there’s about a hundred mallard ducks and at least one Canada goose.
Carcasses, dismembered wings and skeletal remains of numerous ducks lying beneath a 240 kilovolt power line were reported in early January to AltaLink, the electrical system provider, by area resident and environmentalist David McIntyre.
