    The State Ecological Inspectorate suggested that the crows died from the cold. Ecologists believe that the birds could die because of the oil refinery emissions.
    Pictures of the dead birds in Kara-Balta have been published by the publication "Turmush" .
    Manas Karabaev, the head of the State Ecological Inspectorate for the city of Kara-Balta, said in an interview with journalist that the birds could die because of the low temperature. He added that now the department is counting the dead birds.
    "This is definitely not bird flu, because then the first to die domestic birds, not crows. Now we are trying to establish the exact cause of the death of crows, "he said.
    Ecologist Emil Shukurov denied the version of the death of birds from the cold. According to Shukurov, the cause of their death could be the emissions of the oil refinery, which operates in Kara-Balta.
    "This is out of the question, because there was no frost. 100 percent of crows can not die from the cold. They are most likely poisoned by the emissions of the refinery, "he said.
    A resident of Kara-Balta, Belek Kurmantayev, in an interview with Kaktus.Media reported that in the bordering village of Chaldovar, crows also die.
    "My mother was visiting Chaldov yesterday. When she returned, she told me there were a lot of dead crows. She says that since the turn to the village and further along the entire road there were dead birds, "he said.
    The oil processing plant earned in Kara-Balta in 2013. Residents of the city repeatedly went to rallies against the work of the plant due to the fact that their health has worsened since the launch of the enterprise.
    Local residents also accuse the company's management of environmental pollution. The company itself has repeatedly stated that the plant does not cause any harm to residents and environmental claims are unreasonable.

    Mass death of crows in Kara-Balta is not caused by frosts or bird flu., ex-deputy head of the State Inspectorate for Sanitary, Veterinary and Phytosanitary Security Samat Aliyev said.

    According to him, the birds could not die as a result of small frosts.

    "The fact that now the subzero temperature is just" flowers ", and crows are sufficiently adapted to such temperatures," he noted. - I think that the reason lies in another. I also studied this issue and found out that specialists are already investigating the cause of this phenomenon. I believe that soon they will know why they could die.

    Aliyev also stressed that crows rarely die from various infectious diseases, as they are perhaps the most enduring birds.
