A lightning strike is likely behind the death of some 50 geese that were found floating in a river northeast of Montreal, experts say.

Universite de Montreal veterinary specialists were brought in to examine the carcasses that were spotted Thursday morning near Contrecoeur, Que.

Veterinarian Stephane Lair said Friday evening that the geese had small lesions in their hearts that indicated a possible strike.

He said the level of decomposition indicates that they all died at the same time, which rules out disease or intoxication due to a pollutant.
