PORTLAND — Police say 30 dead crows have been found in downtown Portland parks after reports that they were having seizures.

PORTLAND — Police say 30 dead crows have been found in downtown Portland parks after reports that they were having seizures.

A police spokesman says there’s no apparent reason for the deaths.

The Audubon Society has been called in to help with the investigation.

The birds were found Wednesday morning in three areas: Governor Tom McCall Waterfront Park along the Willamette River, the Chapman and Lownsdale squares set among government buildings a few blocks west of the river, and at the nearby Lovejoy Fountain.

Firefighters reported finding no hazardous materials in the air, and officers who checked the area said they found nothing that would have been fatal to the birds.
