The mysterious rain of feces plagued the town of Kelowna in British Columbia from May 9 to 12, splattering residents' cars and hitting them smack in the face.
Human Feces Have Been Falling From The Sky Like Rain In Canada And Nobody Can Explain Why
Storms are bad enough to deal with on its own, but imagine the skies opening up and delivering a deluge of fecal-like substance. This is what Canada has been dealing with for the past two months.
The first reported incident of the so-called poop rain occurred on Wednesday, May 9. Susan Allan and her son were driving with the sunroof down in Kelowna in British Columbia, Canada when they halted at a stoplight and received an unpleasant surprise.
"This is where we were inundated with poop," Allen tells Vancouver Sun. "It was coming from the sky, covered my car, and got in my face and in my mouth. You could tell it was feces because it smelt like poop. But there was also a hint of chlorine. It was the strangest smell."
However, the incident sent Allen to the doctor the next day due to problems with her eye.
'My eye was the size of a golf ball. It was swollen and red,' she said.
Although Allen was embarrassed at first to share her story, she's now speaking out hoping for some justice.
'My car was inundated with poo. I would like them to clean my car out. An apology would be nice, and I do believe they owe me some compensation for my eye. It was disgusting and you don’t ever want it to happen to you,' she said.
When asked if it might've been a flock of birds behind the poop incident she said: 'There's no way it could be birds. There was so much poop on my car, in order for it to be that much poop there would have had to be 500 birds pooping at the same time.'
Since she came forward with the poop story on May 9, others from nearby areas have said they too encountered mystery feces smearing their cars. Brett Yates, who lives near Kelowna, says he found poop on his car and on the vehicles of his neighbors as well.
An alarm was also raised at Kelowna International Airport.
Transport Canada is also investigating the incident.
'Each air operator is responsible for ensuring that their aircraft operate safely and in compliance with the Canadian Aviation Regulations,' Transport Canada spokesperson Daniel Savoie said.
Transport Canada regulations say that 'no person shall create a hazard to persons or property on the surface by dropping an object from an aircraft in flight'.
