- More than 60 birds perished outside a primary school in Adelaide on Wednesday
- The Corellas fell out of the sky in the afternoon and screamed as they hit the ground
- Savior Sarah King believes the birds are poisoned, but doesn't know how
- She said they were bleeding & # 39; from the mouth & # 39; and died or were laid down
More than 60 birds fell from the sky above a primary school in Adelaide on Wednesday after a suspected massive poisoning.
Corellas started to leave the One Tree Hill Primary School on Wednesday afternoon, in full view of children in care of the holiday.
The situation was so dramatic that a childcare worker called a local bird center to report that the animals were being shot, because she could think of no other reason why they would fall so suddenly and in such large numbers.
Bird Rescuter Sarah King, 47, told Daily Mail Australia that the vision was traumatizing, especially for the young children who had witnessed it.
& # 39; Birds fell from the trees, on the ground, waving, distraught, & # 39; she said.

It is suspected that the birds are poisoned and that many were bleeding from the mouth when they were found
Mrs. King said the birds were bleeding from the mouth & # 39; and released a blood-curdling scream.
& # 39; I'm 47 and I'm pretty tough, but I was in tears, they screamed like you've never heard, in 27 years of rescue I've never heard that & # 39 ;, she said.
& # 39; I cannot imagine what the children are like, what they have seen and what they should think.
& # 39; The children found them at the [holiday care]. The lady who called thought they had been shot because they were literally falling from the sky. & # 39;
For over eight hours, King and a team of 11 caregivers helped move birds in crates and boxes, which they transported to two local vets.
As the sky darkened, the group used torches to look for more Corellas, even at one point tangled in barbed wire while working desperately to save the birds.
Unfortunately not one could be saved and all perished or were laid down humane as a result of the poison.
Bird Rescuer Sarah King said the birds broke a blood-curdling scream as they fought for life
Ms. King hopes that a necropsy of the birds will help identify which type of poison was used so that they can reach the bottom of what has killed the birds.
& # 39; Someone must be called to account, & # 39; she said. & # 39; It must stop. & # 39;
The rescuer noted that other birds in the area were not affected by the substance that had killed the Corellas, making the situation even stranger.
& # 39; I have no idea what they used, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; The ghost bivgles. & # 39;
She described the situation as & # 39; traumatizing & # 39; and it is adamant that someone will be held responsible for the death of the birds
