This is a continuation of The Mass Animal Die-Offs of 2010
I included all of the 2010 occurrences in that post above and now in this post ill be including all of the 2011 deaths.. You can expect this post to be updated once more deaths are found! Something is going on and we are not getting any answers from our government! Could HAARP be causing these deaths? Is the earth going through some kind of drastic change? We might never know the true answer to this mysterious question! There is a lot of information out on Google and Youtube, please research into this conspiracy… Below I included a interactive map showing the location of all these deaths. Please tell your friends and family because who knows; humans could be the next species to drop dead! Here is the facts….
1/2/11 – Hundreds of dead fish found in canal marina near Abergavenny, Wales
Environment Agency Wales can confirm that what could be hundreds of dead fish, mostly bream, carp and roach, have been found in the marina on the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal at Goytre Wharf near Abergavenny earlier today.
A 30cm drop in the water level at the marina by work upstream could be a contributory factor, but more than likely the cold weather, ice and lack of oxygen are to blame.
Initial investigations reveal there is no pollution detectable but no conclusion has been drawn as officers continue their work.
Smaller fish have, however, been found alive in the marina.
Officers are advising people that no attempts should be made to remove or go near to any fish at this stage.
1/2/11 – 1000’s of Redwing Blackbirds fall from the sky in Bebee, Arkansas.
Mike Robertson, the mayor in Beebe, told The Associated Press the last dead bird was removed about 11 a.m. Sunday in the town about 40 miles northeast of Little Rock. He said 12 to 15 workers, hired by the city to do the cleanup, wore environmental-protection suits for the task.
The birds had fallen Friday night over a 1-mile area of Beebe, and an aerial survey indicated that no other dead birds were found outside of that area. The workers from U.S. Environmental Services started the cleanup Saturday.
Robertson said the workers wore the suits as a matter of routine and not out of fear that the birds might be contaminated. He said speculation on the cause is not focusing on disease or poisoning.
Several hundred thousand red-winged blackbirds have used a wooded area in the town as a roost for the past several years, he said. Robertson and other officials went to the roost area over the weekend and found no dead birds on the ground.
“That pretty much rules out an illness” or poisoning, the mayor said.
1/3/11 – Tens of thousands of small fish die in the Chesapeake Bay.
The Maryland Department of the Environment said that tens of thousands of small fish have died in the Chesapeake Bay due to the stress of the cold water.
MDE spokeswoman Dawn Stolzfus said reports of a fish kill started coming in last week from Calvert County and Kent Island.
Many 11 News viewers wrote in Monday to report that the fish had begun washing onto the shore.
Stolzfus said the types of fish that have died are menhayden, spots and croakers.
She said the fish usually swim to warmer waters before the severe cold weather that the area experienced in December. There is no word on why the fish didn’t do that.
1/3/11 – 1000’s of dead octopuses wash up on Portugal beaches.
Thousands of dead octopuses have washed up on a beach in northern Portugal, in what is being called an environmental disaster.
They cover a 5-mile stretch of Vila Nova de Gaia beach – no reason has yet been found for their appearance.
The authorities have warned the public not to eat them.
1/3/11 – 100,000 dead Drumfish wash up along a 17-mile stretch of the Arkansas River.
1/2/11 – Discovery of several dead migratory birds in Japan.
Recent discovery of several dead migratory birds in Japan has raised concerns about H5NI avian influenza, avian experts said.
Bird sanctuaries, poultry farms and zoos were put on high alert last month after the migratory birds in some region were found dead, The New York Times reported Monday.
The Times cited Japanese media reports collected by ProMED, which monitors disease outbreaks. The reports included one that a hooded crane was found dead on the Izumi Plain in Kagoshima Prefecture in southern Japan, the largest wild crane wintering site and the nation’s leading poultry-raising area.
The reports said 23 birds were found dead following a search in Tottori in the north. The birds were being tested.
1/3/11 – Dead birds of prey at the roadside in Germany.
Around the turn of the year were to witness a total of seven birds of prey along the road between the town and layers Gladbach Poll, which had apparently been poisoned. The police filed a criminal charges and put the carcass securely so they can be tested for their precise cause of death.
On New Year’s morning, about 16:30 clock, and in the early morning hours of New Year’s Day a couple from the municipality was in each of the county road 53 to several dead buzzards hear. The additional police officers were more likely caused by poisoned bait on birds.
On both days in the vicinity of the sites were seized evidence, which currently allow the suspected poisoning. The police therefore witnesses, the suspect observations in connection with the dead birds of prey have made to get in touch with the control center of the police in Düren.
1/3/11 – Dozens of Redwing Blackbirds found by woman in Kentucky.
Near her car, a dead bird. A quick walk to her mailbox, another. Scattered across her front yard, a local woman discovered dozens of dead birds.
“I’ve never seen anything like it. Never,” Sandy said of the discovery.
Sandy, who asked we not share her last name, first noticed the birds several days ago but cleaned them up, not thinking twice.
“I have outdoor pets and just assumed they were bringing them from around the neighborhood.”
But when she noticed more birds Monday morning, she panicked, “I had just seen the story on the news about the birds in Arkansas and I was scared.”
In fact, 3,000 blackbirds seemed to fall from the sky there- starting last Friday. Autopsies have since ruled out poisoning. One top biologist from Cornell University said the birds were “….probably asleep in a single tree when a washing machine-type thunderstorm sucked them up into the air, disoriented them, and even fatally soaked and chilled them.”
1/4/11 – 100’s of fish found dead in a brook running through a Peterborough beauty spot, UK.
SCORES of fish have been found dead in a brook running through a Peterborough beauty spot.
Walkers have been left horrified at the sight of the fish lying on top of the waters in Werrington Brook, in Cuckoo’s Hollow, Peterborough.
Environment Agency officials have been alerted but say it could be some days before the results of tests to find out the cause of the death are known.
It is feared by some residents that a factory fire nearby last month may have polluted the brook, causing the fish to die.
Ward councillor John Fox had alerted the Environment Agency in the aftermath of a major blaze in a nearby cosmetics factory warehouse off Lincoln Road, in Werrington on Tuesday, December 14.
He said: “We could be looking at another environmental disaster similar to when oil from a garage in Lincoln Road leaked into the water and killed all the fish a few years ago.
“After the fire at the Potter and Moore Innovations warehouse and all the water we used we noticed the water at Cuckoo’s Hollow had turned a milky colour but we don’t know yet whether that was to blame.”
1/4/11 – 100’s of Snapper fish in New Zealand
After America, Sweden and Brazil, New Zealand is now facing the same case of mysteriously died animals. The enigmatic case leads some people to say that it is one of the signs of the apocalypse. No one knows precisely how the phenomenon can happen.
According to New Zealand Press Association (NZPA), James Hughes, an Auckland resident, located the snapper floating near to the shore after children who were in his group ran to him while his hands were holding some of the dead fish. Hughes and others started to walk, heading to the spot that was reported by the children. They were surprised to find so many dead fish floating on the water.
Brendon Mikkelsen, the official of Ministry of Fisheries, reminded that the fish would be unsafe to eat because it had been in the water for more than 12 hours. The Ministry had sent a team to investigate the case. To deliberately dump snapper on the sea was an illegal action, but probably there would be another reason why the snapper died.
1/4/11 – 100’s of dead Shad in Sarnia, Ontario.
Hundreds of dead fish that washed up on shore in the north end of the St. Clair River is a natural occurrence and not the result of a chemical spill, a government officials say.
Ministry of Natural Resources spokesperson Jolanta Kowalski confirmed that both the MNR and environment ministry were alerted to a massive die-off of gizzard shad fish late last week.
“We think it’s a natural occurrence,” Kowalski said. “They died off as a result of temperature shock because we had that really warm weekend … and then it quickly cooled off again.”
Kowalski said such die-offs are not unusual but it typically happens in the spring.
Only one species was affected, further supporting the idea it was a natural occurrence, she said.
1/4/11 – 10,000’s of dead birds in Manitoba, Canada
There has been some kind of very extreme weather event in the arctic apparently in Northern Manitoba and in the general area of Churchhill Manitoba. There is a flurry of Military activity at the old CFB base near Churchill.
Some-kind of super atmospheric heating/cooling event led to a drastic increase in temperatures then a sudden decrease in temperatures. Tens of thousands of birds and probably other wildlife died in what is being described as a mega “ice storm”, like the one that happened in Quebec that knocked out power lines for weeks and cost billions in damage.
Inuit in the far north has reported methane out-gassing that sometimes spray 30 meters into the air, extreme changes are happening in the arctic and this may be a chain reaction of events that precipitate the collapse on the Greenland ice sheet and the failure of the north Atlantic current.
1/4/11 – Thousands of dead fish found along Spruce Creek, Florida.
Richard Baker’s home is on the banks of Spruce Creek.
Barker is used to catching fish on the creek, but not seeing them float by.
“It’s pretty horrific actually,” Barker said.
Officials with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said the two recent cold snaps are to blame for the fish kill.
Barker agrees, saying he began seeing them floating upstream days after last week’s dip in temperatures.
“What I think it is, is the fish come back here cause it’s shallow, it’s warm water and they get trapped back here and they can’t get back to deep water, and then we have back to back freezing nights and they die,” Barker said.
1/4/11 – 500 dead birds fall from the sky in Louisiana.
Around 500 dead birds have fallen from the sky in Louisiana, found scattered along a quarter-mile portion of highway in Point Coupee Parish, the AP reports. The discovery is approximately 300 miles south of Beebe, Arkansas, where just days earlier thousands of the same species of birds also fell from the sky.
Initial tests conducted by biologists on the red-winged blackbirds and starlings found in Arkansas revealed that the birds suffered internal injuries that formed deadly blood clots. Countless explanations have been speculated, from intense high-altitude weather like lightning or hail to disturbance from fireworks. Disease and poison were determined to be far less likely causes, though full test results won’t rule them out until next week.
“There was probably some physical reason, but I doubt anyone will ever know what it was,” Thurman Booth, Arkansas’ wildlife services director, told CBS.
The latest occurrence of more dead birds turning up in Louisiana only compounds local residents’ worries, as in the week prior to the Arkansas blackbird mystery, 83,000 dead drum fish washed up along a river about 100 miles west of Beebe. Wildlife officials claim the incidents are not related.
1/5/11 – 100’s of dead birds found in Western Kentucky.
Kentucky wildlife officials say several hundred dead birds were found dead in the western part of the state.
The grackles, red wing blackbirds, robins and starlings were found last week.
New Year’s Eve fireworks have been blamed for the deaths of thousands of blackbirds in central Arkansas. Another 450 birds died this week in Louisiana, likely after hitting power lines or cars.
Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources spokesman Mark Marraccini says someone called police about the discovery in Kentucky, and they alerted state officials.
Marraccini says tests performed on the birds ruled out diseases or poisons. He said the deaths could have been caused by weather or another natural event.
1/5/11 – Dozens of dead birds found in Marion, Illinois.
Dead birds falling from the sky have made headlines in Arkansas, Kentucky and Louisiana, but residents around Marion, Illinois have also found dead birds in recent days. A cluster of households in the same family that living close together in rural Marion reported finding dead birds in their yards around the same time as the Beebe, AR dead birds.
While these findings have not made national news, they have sparked interest in my own community. The three households are family members of mine and while one aunt found dead birds earlier in December, my parents and uncle found dozens of dead birds during the last week of December.
My aunt stated that after finding the birds in her yard in early December, she contacted local wildlife authorities and was told that the birds had most likely been poisoned. While it is possible (this is a farming community and birds can be a nuisance for farmers who respond by putting out poisons), it makes you wonder when there have been more widespread reports of dead birds in other locations.
Speculation has been high that the dead birds are connected to the New Madrid Seismic Zone, which southern Illinois sits directly on. Another reporting of dead birds came from Gilbertsville, KY which is located approximately 80 miles from Marion.
1/5/11 – Birds of prey falling out of the sky in China.
Arkansas cities and towns in heaven, there are more than 1000 blackbirds fell to the ground from the sky, and they were dead! American executive confusion Wildlife Service out of the sky Why do dead birds, also lost so much
Yesterday morning, the king master walking to work, an eagle suddenly hit him and died. Drop from birds, such a small probability event, most recently in Geleshan sporadic, and continued for months. Birds out of the sky is only the beginning, but now even the eagle fell, residents began to unrest, why do so scary?
1/5/11 – 50 dead jackdaws found dead in Falkoping, Sweden
Officials say about 50 birds have been found dead on a street in Sweden.
Veterinarian Robert ter Horst says the cause of jackdaws’ deaths was unclear but that fireworks were set off near the scene Tuesday night.
The birds were found dead on Wednesday.
Ter Horst says cold weather, difficulties finding food and possible shock from the fireworks could be responsible, leading to the stressed birds either dying from the stress or being run over by vehicles.
Five of the dead jackdaws found in the city of Falkoping were being tested.
Mass bird deaths aren’t uncommon.
In the U.S., New Year’s Eve fireworks were blamed in Arkansas for killing thousands of blackbirds, and a few days later power lines likely killed about 450 birds in Louisiana.
1/6/11 – 40,000 dead crabs wash ashore on England beaches.
As if thousands of dead birds falling from the sky and millions of fish turning up dead across the world in the last week weren’t enough, the Thanet Coast in the UK is now littered with tens of thousands of dead crabs that have washed ashore.
The events are likely unrelated, however, and the BBC notes that this is the third year in a row thousands of dead devil crabs, also known as velvet swimming crabs, have turned up on the coastline near Kent, England. It is estimated that 40,000 of the dead crabs have washed up on the beaches this year.
According to LiveScience, experts believe cold weather is to blame for the massive crab deaths. Tests conducted in past years have turned up no results for disease or similar problems, leaving the cause an unexplained mystery, though hypothermia is conjectured.
The news of thousands of dead crabs follows similar reports of immense wildlife deaths among birds and fish occurring around the world in the past week. Thousands of dead birds fell from the sky on New Year’s Eve in Beebe, Arkansas, and experts believe fireworks are likely to blame. Days later, around 500 similar bird deaths were reported in Louisiana, around 300 miles south of the Arkansas incident.
1/7/11 – 80 pigeons die at a farm near Quebec City, Canada.
More than 80 pigeons have keeled over and died at a farm near Quebec City for unknown reasons, the latest in a string of mysterious animal deaths around the world.
Environmental officials in the province say there’s no connection to a similar case in Arkansas, but Sylvain Turmel is wondering why he’s been picking up dead pigeons for more than two weeks on his farm in Saint-Augustine-de-Desmaures.
The first dead bird was found on Dec. 18. He’s since found more bodies on his roof and inside the barn.
“I was stunned,” he said.
“I went to see my tenant to ask whether he’d been feeding them poison. He ended helping me pick up 25 corpses. In the time it took us to collect them, five more had fallen. Authorities thought it might be gas. But that’s not possible.”
1/8/11 – 8000 turtledoves drop from the sky dead in Faenza, Italy.
Hundreds of dead turtle doves have been found in a town in northern Italy.
An Italian association for bird protection said Saturday that over 700 dead birds have been picked up since Jan. 1 from the streets of Faenza, about 30 miles (50 kilometers) southeast of Bologna.
Scientists were carrying out tests to figure out why the birds died but Nadia Caselli of the bird association said they appear to have overeaten sunflower seeds, which damage their livers and kidneys. The seeds are mostly waste from a nearby oil factory.
Unlike stronger birds like pigeons, turtle doves are also debilitated by cold weather.
The mass deaths follow similar cases recently in the United States and Sweden.
1/9/11 – Dozens of starlings found dead in Jefferson County, Missouri.
A NewsChannel 5 viewer called in late Saturday afternoon about more than a dozen dead birds, scattered on an overpass in Jefferson County, along Old Highway 21 and just south of Rock Creek Road.
So, after getting out there ourselves to see the starlings, we called the executive director of the World Bird Santuary, Walter Crawford, and he explained what he thought the cause of this actually common fall-out could be.
“You have an overpass there,” he said. “A lot of times birds will roost under these overpasses, especially in really cold winter…and, of course, mother nature weeds out the sick, the old and the injured and it could be that these were birds that were very old and just couldn’t deal with the climate.”
1/9/11 – Three dozen starlings near a US base in Romania
Around three dozens of dead starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) were discovered dead in Constanţa, a Romanian city by the Black Sea, within 15 miles from a US military base. On Saturday morning, local people living in the lighthouse area found the birds dead in the snow and in the branches of some trees. Local veterinarian authorities suspect that the birds may have been poisoned, but they will only be able to establish a final verdict after a toxicology examination of the corpses. The examination is scheduled for Monday. Romeo Lazăr, the director of the Sanitary-Veterinarian Direction of Constanţa supposes that the starlings might have eaten poisoned grain found by the rail track nearby. Local people found a suspicios looking empty bag near one of the buildings in the area. The dead birds have been collected and transported to the Sanitary-Veterinarian Direction of Constanţa, pending the examination. At about 15 miles from Constanţa, the US have a military airbase, by the Kogălniceanu airport.
1/10/11 – Dozens of dead starlings in the the county Karacabey in Bursa province of Turkey.
In Turkey, there was a case of an unexplained mass deaths of birds.
Dead starlings found residents of the county Karacabey in Bursa province. On the road were dozens of carcasses of birds. Promptly reported the incident to local authorities launched an investigation of the incident.
Experts are currently conducting the necessary tests. However, while they failed to establish the cause of death of starlings. According to ITAR-TASS news agency, according to one version, the flock of birds could crash a few heavy-duty trucks, marching one after another.
On the unexplained mass death of birds, the world’s media began reporting on New Years Eve, when about 4 thousands of blackbirds fell dead near the small town Biib in Arkansas. Later, similar cases occurred in Louisiana and Kentucky. Also, incidents of mass deaths of birds have been recorded in Canada, Sweden and Italy.
1/10/11 – Dead birds along roads in Holland.
I was travelling south today from Den Helder towards my own city Alkmaar in North Holland around 4:PM. I had a strange feeling I would be seeing some dead birds, don’t know where the feeling came from I just knew, like we all have sometimes, so as I left Den Helder on the A9 I decided to stay alert and watch the surrounding countryside as I drove.
The weather was cold but very sunny and the surrounding countryside wonderful but nothing unusual. However halfway through my journey I suddenly started seeing black shapes lying along the side of the road, I focused my eyes and realised they where DEAD BIRDS! I pulled over into a parking bay and grabbed my camera, what I saw was shocking, about fifty birds where lying dead by the side of the road, or on the field close by, birds littered the other side of the road too but I couldn’t come there because of the busy traffic.
Most of these birds have been hit by vehicles, it’s plain to see but why so many in one small area, about 500 metres and the rest of the journey I saw nothing, no more birds, it just doesn’t make sense.
Why would all these birds die in one small area?
1/11/11 – Thousands of dead fish found floating in the Yamuna river in India
1/11/11 – Thousands of gizzard shad die off on Chicago lakefront.
A bizarre scene is evolving on the Chicago lakefront, with Canada geese and mallard ducks gulping down dead or dying gizzard shad.
A major die-off of what appears to be the 2010 class is happening in Chicago harbors. Thousands, perhaps far more than that, of dead gizzard shad in the 3- to 5-inch range are frozen in the ice of Chicago harbors or floating around in open patches of water.
“Gizzard shad are pretty sensitive,’’ Lake Michigan Program biologist Dan Makauskas said. “On the toughness scale, the herrings are pretty soft.’’
Gizzard shad, members of the herring family, are more sensitive to drops in oxygen levels than most fish. And thick ice came early to Chicago harbors in December.
1/11/11 – Hundreds of European Starlings found dead on the side of the I-101 highway in Sonoma County, California.
The mystery surrounding 100 dead birds between Healdsburg and Geyserville appears to be solved.The European starlings were found dead on the roadway and shoulder at Highway 101 and Independence Lane, just south of Geyserville Saturday afternoon.
State wildlife officials Tuesday said the birds were hit by a truck, a conclusion drawn from a witness statement and the condition of the birds at the scene.
“All the signs point to blunt force trauma,” said Andrew Hughan, spokesman for the state Department of Fish and Game. “It looks like they were hit by a truck.”
The roads are flanked by vineyards which are an attractive place for starlings to soar. They fly in large numbers, grouping closely together and are distinctive for their darting flight.
Wildlife officials were at the scene Tuesday, and brief necropsies showed the birds suffered broken necks, Hughan said. No signs of gunshots or shotgun pellets were found, he said.
Some of the birds will be taken to a department lab in Sacramento for further tests to formally rule out other causes, he said.
1/12/11 – Millions of crickets being raised for pets wiped out in Port Allen, Louisiana.
A virus has killed millions of crickets raised to feed pet reptiles and those kept in zoos.
The cricket paralysis virus has disrupted supplies to pet shops across North America as a handful of operators have seen millions of their insects killed.
Some operations have gone bankrupt and others have closed indefinitely until they can rid their facilities of the virus.
Cricket farms started in the 1940s as a source of fish bait, but the bulk of sales now are to pet supply companies, reptile owners and zoos, although people also eat some.Most U.S. farms are in the South, but suppliers from Pennsylvania to California also raise crickets.The virus had swept through European cricket farms in 2002. It was first noticed in 2009 in the U.S. and Canada.
1/13/11 – Hundreds of grackles (blackbirds) found dead on the side of the I-65 highway in Alabama.
An estimated 300 dead birds have been found on the side of the I-65 highway in Alabama, WAFF News reports. According to wildlife biologist Bill Gates, the birds are grackles, a common black bird, one of the same species reported in the past weeks to have been found dead in mass quantities in other nearby states like Arkansas, Louisiana and Kentucky.
Gates told WAFF that the feathers scattered across the location suggest trauma, and he believes a semi-truck or other vehicle may be responsible for their death. Samples are being sent to the National Wildlife Health Center in Madison, Wisconsin to run a series of tests to determine what caused the mass bird deaths, as disease or poisoning could also be to blame.
Over 100 birds were found dead on the side of a California highway this past weekend, and a collision with a big rig is also believed to be responsible for that incident. One witness allegedly saw the incident and said “it looked like they were committing suicide.”
1/14/11 – Mass fish die-off in the Iranian section of the Caspian Sea.
Mass fish death was recorded in the Iranian sector of the Caspian Sea,” Iranian Gulistan Province’s Nature Conservation Department Deputy Head Mohsen Jafarnejad said.
Mass death of fish in the Caspian Sea is recorded on the west coast of the Gulistan Province. A large number of dead mullet have washed ashore, Shomalnews.com reported.
“An analysis of samples taken from dead fish was carried out, and now we are waiting for their results,” Jafarnejad said.
The Gulistan Province is located in northeastern Iran. The center of the province is the Gurgan city.
1/15/11 – 1000’s of dead Menhaden Fish die-off on Folly Beach, South Carolina
A nationwide scare involving mass deaths of fish and birds has now hit ground locally.
Thousands of dead fish washed ashore at Folly Beach on Thursday morning — an eyesore visible down both sides of the shoreline behind the former Holiday Inn.
Officials with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (DNR) are investigating the incident and say the fish are all of the same species — Menhaden.
“We’re still waiting to see if DNR can come up with some kind of a clue as to why this happened.” Folly Beach Mayor Tim Goodwin said.
If the Fish are not washed away by the tide, Folly officials will be responsible for the clean up.
Bill Troy was out for his morning jog when he noticed thousands of the silver sided fish washed up on the shore.
1/17/11 – Hundreds of crows are once again dying off in Romania.
Hundreds of dead or agonizing crows have brought terror to a town in the Eastern part of Romania. Since Saturday, the locals of Roman, a town of 80.000 people, have noticed that hundreds of crows fell to the ground dead or in agony in one of the local parks. On Monday, dozens of birds were struggling with death, unable to fly. Local experts suspect that the crows may have been poisoned, but no verdict can be given before a forensic study is conducted.
Some three dozens starlings have also been found dead in Constanţa, by the Black Sea, in Romania, on January the 8th. Veterinarians concluded that the starlings died of cold and alcohol intoxication.
1/17/11 – Hundreds of Eastern brown pelicans, some with missing wings and frostbite dead off Jacksonville, FL
Hundreds of Eastern brown pelicans, some with missing wings and frostbite, have been injured or killed in the St. Johns River the past couple of weeks in the Mayport area.
The exact reason is unknown but the cold weather could have caused hypothermia when the birds landed in the water. The pelicans have been losing a protective coating they have on their body to shield their feathers from becoming saturated by water.
Cindy Mosling, co-founder of the Bird Emergency Aid and Kare Sanctuary on Big Talbot Island, thinks chemicals in the water could be the culprit.
Mosling and her team, which consists of her husband and their only employee, Jose Gutierrez, have been capturing the sick birds for a more than a week when they fly to an open feeding area at their facility. They spot the weak ones and bring them in to be cleaned, warmed and fed.
1/17/11 – Hundreds of dead seals in Labrador.
People on the north coast of Labrador say scores of dead seals have been washing ashore since early December.
A conservation officer with the area’s Inuit government estimated late last week that hundreds of adult and young seals have died in the area between Hopedale and Makkovik this winter.
The Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) is testing the carcasses, but Nunatsiavut conservation officer Ian Winters said many people in the area believe DFO hasn’t acted quickly enough.
“I think they should have been up here earlier, if you’re asking me. A lot of people said the same thing. So, maybe it’s not on top of their agenda,” he said.
Usually at this time of year seals are on sea ice south of Hopedale, said Winters, but he said there is very little ice there now.
Last month, people in northern Labrador found the bodies of dead seal pups on the coast.
At the time, a federal seal researcher said the early birth of seal pups in Labrador may be an indication the area’s seal population has grown too large.
DFO researcher Garry Stenson said that seal population growth could lead to reproductive problems.
“What you expect in a population that is starting to regulate itself are things like lower reproductive rates and variable reproductive rates, but also higher pup mortality and also higher juvenile mortality,” he said Monday in St. John’s.
Stenson said the harp seal population of Atlantic Canada is now at between eight and nine million. A 2004 assessment of seal stocks estimated the harp seal population in the area at between 4.6 and 7.2 million.
1/18/11 – 200 Cows found dead on a farm in Portage County, Wisconsin.
200 cows were found dead Friday on a farm in Portage County, Wisconsin. The dead cows had to be removed with semi-trucks. The rest of the farm has not been quarantined, as officials say no threat is posed toward humans or other animals, according the The AP.
The owner of the dead cows was working with a local veterinarian, who initially believed a virus such as infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR) or bovine virus diarrhea (BVD) could be the culprit, according to The Wausau Daily Herald. WSAW News reports that more recent updates have suggested pneumonia as the cause of the mass cow deaths, though such widespread cases of pneumonia are rare. Tests are still underway to determine what is responsible. See WSAW’s full video report here.
Though likely unrelated, many other incidents of mass animal deaths have been reported in the U.S. and around the world in the past month. Thousands of dead birds fell from the sky in Arkansas on New Year’s Eve, following a massive fish kill just 100 miles away days earlier. In the week following, other mass bird deaths were reported in nearby Louisiana and Kentucky. Birds were also reported to fall dead from the sky in Italy and Sweden, and more recently similar incidents have been reported in California and Alabama.
1/20/11 – Hundreds of dead birds found dead under trees in Dacono, Colorado.
Colorado is now on the list of states where birds are mysteriously dying.
CBS4 You Reporter Stacia Shane sent in pictures of dozens of dead birds she found on I-25.
The birds were found near Dacono.
More than one hundred birds were found and most of them were under trees.
1/20/11 – Hundreds of birds found dead in Yankton, South Dakota
When hundreds of dead birds were found Monday in Yankton, South Dakota, many residents were puzzled, thinking it was the latest in a string of similar mysterious mass animal deaths around the world. But this is one instance of the many where a clear cause has been identified, as the U.S. government claims responsibility for killing the more than 200 starlings.
It was initially believed that cold weather may have caused the bird deaths, but then Yankton police received a call from the USDA, attesting that they had poisoned the birds at a feedlot 10 miles away, KTIV reports. Apparently, some 5,000 of the birds were defecating in the feed meal, posing a threat to the animals and farm workers, when the USDA decided killing them would be the best action to take.
A bait laced with the poison DRC-1339 was used, though officials were surprised the birds made it so far before dying. They assure that the poisoned dead birds do not pose a risk to nearby animals or humans.
While the mystery of dead birds falling from the sky in South Dakota was quickly solved, similar mass animal deaths around the world remain enigmatic. 200 dead cows were recently found on a farm in Wisconsin, with a disease or pneumonia suspected as the culprit. Prior to that, mass bird deaths ranging from dozens to thousands were reported in Arkansas, Alabama, Louisiana, Kentucky, California, Italy and Sweden. Mass fish death had been report in Arkansas, Maryland, Chicago, New Zealand and Brazil, and 40,000 crabs washed ashore beaches in England.
1/20/11 – 55 buffalo die mysteriously on southern Cayuga County farm, NY
Sempronius buffalo farmer Peter Head has lost 55 animals to a mysterious illness since October, but autopsies have shown no clear cause of death.
“We’re going nuts down here trying to figure out what’s going on,” he said. “This is going to put me out of business. That’s half my frickin’ herd.”
Head and his wife Deborah have run PDH Buffalo Farm on Route 41A for nine years. This year, 17 of his 23 calves died and he has stopped selling meat as a precaution.
“I don’t want to be selling buffalo meat when I don’t know what’s going on here,” he said.
Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine conducted necropsies on several of the carcasses but found only dehydration, Head said.
Ron Podolak of the Cayuga County Soil and Water Conservation District said there is no indication that disease is spreading to neighboring farms.
“In my career, I don’t remember anything quite like this,” Podolak said. “There’s die-offs, but usually they can determine what it is right away and treat them. … I just wish there was something more we could do to help Pete. This is a catastrophic loss for him.”
1/21/11 – Dozens of dead blackbirds, mallards and magpies have been found along the banks of the Xiaojing River, near Beijing.
A massive wild bird kill is reported from a Beijing suburb.
Dozens of dead blackbirds, mallards and magpies have been found along the banks of the Xiaojing River, according to the Huang’jiu Ribao newspaper.
A staff member of a centre for hygiene and epidemiological control does not rule out that the birds have died of starvation and unfavourable weather conditions.
Mass bird deaths for no obvious reason has been registered in Sweden, the United States, Italy and Canada since early this year.
1/21/11 – 10,000 cattle and and buffalo die in Vietnam.
In the latest of a string of mass animal deaths, 10,000 cows and buffalo have died in Vietnam.
Vietnam’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development confirmed the news this week that more than 10,000 cows and buffalos died nationwide due to harsh weather conditions.
Cattle have been dying throughout Vietnam, which has had a particularly intense winter. The northern mountainous province of Cao Bang was hardest hit with 2,260 dead cattle, per Thanh Nien News. Some have said the number of total dead cattle may be as high as 13,000.
Mass animal deaths have been in the news quite a bit lately. Hundreds of birds were found dead in South Dakota early this week, and before that birds were found dead in Italy and birds fell from the sky in Arkansas, among other incidents.
1/22/11 – Hundreds of Eider Ducks found dead in Norway.
Andøy municipality should take water samples from the harbor after hundreds of eider ducks mysteriously found dead.
Port Director Odd Bernt Mevold is one of those who collect the birds. -So far today we’ve picked up ten birds, so there is a high mortality rate now. What happens in the harbor here is tragic, “said Mevold to NRK.
Now the door is about 10 birds a day in the area, and it is not normal, “says Mevold.
1/22/11 – Hundreds of penguins dying near Wellington at Banks Peninsula, NZ
Little penguins are dying in their hundreds, leading conservationists to fear they are starving as a result of the La Nina weather system.
Other seabirds are washing up dead on beaches, raising concerns that species could become extinct if climate change causes extreme weather events to become more frequent.
At Wellington Zoo, two starving little blue penguin chicks have been brought in this week. One died on Wednesday and the other, found at Lyall Bay, was hanging on to life yesterday.
The zoo’s veterinary science manager, Lisa Argilla, said petrels were also starving around Wellington’s south coast, and five shags had been brought in this month. “They’re unable to find enough food. We’ve had a lot of starvations and a lot of mortalities.”
At Banks Peninsula, hundreds of little white-flippered penguin chicks have died of starvation, according to Shireen Helps, who has been caring for the colony on her property for about 25 years.
“There were chicks dying in their burrows, in the hillside, and heaps dying on the water.”
Dr Argilla said the calm La Nina seas meant fewer small fish and plankton close to the surface of the water for them to feed on.
1/23/11 – 75 dead starlings found in a 12-foot square in Somerset village of Croxley, UK
Seventy-five birds were found in an area measuring only 12ft in diameter, each with severe injuries including broken beaks and legs, and abdominal wounds. Only six were alive and they were put to sleep.
The householder, Julie Knight, 53, a nurse, returned to her home in the Somerset village of Croxley at 4pm on Sunday to discover the grisly scene.
“It was like something out of a horror film, like Hitchcock’s The Birds. It was absolutely terrifying,” she said. “The sky was raining starlings. One of my neighbours saw them. They seemed to just fall out of the sky.
“The only way to describe what they looked like is that they seemed to have had a fright and were petrified. I have been a country girl all my life and I’ve never seen anything like it.”
The RSPCA, which was called to the scene, said the most likely explanation was that the starlings were being chased by a predator, possibly a sparrow hawk.
“They have done a swoop to try to escape but they all got too low and hit the ground,” said a spokesman. “Bystanders heard a whooshing sound as the birds fell to the ground and suddenly there were dead ones everywhere.
“You hear of birds hitting power lines but nothing like this. It is quite remarkable for so many to have died at one time.”
1/25/11 – Dead herrings wash ashore on two beaches in Cedar, Canada…
Another beach in Cedar has been found covered with hundreds of dead herring that washed ashore.
The fish were found Monday near the beach house in Cedar-By-The-Sea, a short distance from the beach north of Boat Harbour where Will Meeks found a large number of dead herring on Friday.
Brenda Spence, a spokeswoman for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, speculated early Monday — before the latest discovery — that sea lions eating through nets used in the food and bait herring fishery in the Georgia Strait was the likely cause of the first incident.
She said fishermen involved in the small fishery reported problems with “mammal predation” on their nets late last week.
Spence said some fishing boats had holes cut in their nets, with sea lions the probable culprits, which allowed herring to be released near Cedar. She speculated that this was the cause of the dead herring found Friday.
Commercial herring fisherman Paul Kershaw said it’s likely both incidents are connected to the ongoing food and bait fishery.
This is a huge list, which I broke apart in two sections… Now I didn’t include the honeybees, frogs, earthworms or other insects that also died with these animals… If I included all of those links as well, I would have to make four separate posts, due to so much content.. This is updated to 1-27-11; I’m sure a lot more animals have died since then.. My goal is to show you that this is NOT normal! It’s kind of scary to think about what the future will have in store for us.. But there is a lot of good information out there about all these deaths, it’s just not in America! It’s everywhere and it affects every species besides humans.. Time will only tell! Below is a interactive Google map showing the coordinates. BTW: Here is some recent occurrences.. Ill update this post when I have time to dig up more death stories..
6/3/11 – Thousands of Dead Worms Plague Ohio
From Louisville to Cincinnati to Dayton to Cleveland, beginning yesterday afternoon there have been thousands upon untold thousands of earthworms coming out of the ground which have subsequently ‘fried’ on the surface from the rays of the sun.
Some local mainstream media outlets are reporting that the cause of the earthworm die-off is from heavy rain or acidic soil. The problem is, some of the reported areas have been dry, and certainly not all of Ohio soil has suddenly become ‘acidic’.
Another explanation is that it is mating season for earthworms (the Spring), when they often come out of the ground and get trapped on the concrete or hard surfaces, and eventually die from the sun’s rays.
The thing is, I don’t recall having heard of this kind of mass earthworm doom-and-gloom occurring on such a wide scale, and found it interesting given the fact that so many other animal die-off’s have been reported during this past year.
5/18/11 – Mass animal deaths continue as thousands of dead walleye wash up in Lake Erie
Experts are trying to figure out why thousands of dead walleye fish have been washing up on a roughly 25-mile stretch of Lake Erie between the northern Ohio cities of Toledo and Port Clinton over the past few weeks. The mysterious deaths add to the millions of others that have occurred since the beginning of 2011, most of whose cause of death has never been conclusively determined.
According to a recent report in The News-Messenger, tens of thousands of fish have washed up on Ohio beaches in recent days, and the majority of them have been between two-and-a-half to three pounds in weight. Some local anglers have told reporters that the sight of these dead fish is highly unusual, and that they appear to be coming from the west.
“I’m hearing thousands or tens of thousands maybe, on the high side,” said Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) biologist and program administrator Roger Knight to reporters. “This is something out of the ordinary.”
5/11/11 – 31 Dead Dolphins in Southern Ukraine!
Thirty one dolphins were found dead in the Crimean Peninsula in Southern Ukraine, the press office of the Emergencies Ministry in Crimea reported Tuesday. According to officials, the dead dolphins were scattered in an area of 2 km along the coastal zone. Experts said the probable cause of the mammalian deaths is getting into the fishing nets. The majority of the dolphins have visible wounds on their body, some of them have damaged or missing fins.
