Estimates of up to 100,000 dead drum fish were found on a 20 mile stretch of the Arkansas River near Ozark, about 125 miles northwest of Little Rock. Tests of the water revealed no trace of bacteria, viruses, parasites, pesticides or toxins. Only one species, the drum fish, was affected, which would normally point to disease. A definite cause for the deaths has not been identified. Thousands of birds died at the same time near the area, leading to a host of non-conventional theories, including gases from leaks along the New Madrid fault, suspicions of government testing in the area, and the onset of the apocalypse.
