Mass Animal Deaths caused by Poison

By Ai Lung Nguyen - January 2011.

ENVIRONNENT - A build up of toxic and poisonous gases in the Earth's atmosphere is killing many birds and fishes in large numbers. There has been incidents of mass animal deaths including birds, fish and crabs in Arkansas, England, Sweden and New Zealand. So far the incidents also include:

2 million dead fish washed up in Chesapeake Bay, Maryland last Saturday.

Hundreds of snapper fish were found dead and washed ashore at Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand on Tuesday.

A 2nd incident in New Zealand has happened with penguins, petrels and other seabirds dying in the hundreds. Scientists believe they ate the snapper fish and were poisoned by whatever is in the fish.

150 tonnes of red tilapias fish have died in Vietnam, washed ashore. The Vietnamese government claims they were killed by lack of oxygen in the water.

100 tonnes of dead sardines and catfish have washed up on the beaches of Paranagua, Brazil.

In England, more than 40,000 Velvet swimming crabs were found dead on the beaches.

The Thanet shoreline is littered with the crabs, along with dead starfish, lobsters, sponges and anemones.

50 jackdaw birds were found dead Wednesday on a street in Stockholm, Sweden.

On Tuesday, 450 birds plummeted to their deaths in Louisiana.

On New Year’s Eve, over 3,000 red-winged blackbirds fell from the skies in Arkansas.

Also in Arkansas thousands of dead fish are now floating along 17 miles of river south of Hartman, Arkansas.

100,000 drum fish washed up on the shores of the Arkansas River.

300 turtle doves died in Italy on Friday.

In the case of the turtle doves people noted a blue stain on the doves, similar to that causes by potassium cyanide which causes hypoxia and suffocation, which could explain how they died, but not why a whole flock of turtle doves suddenly flew into a cloud of potassium cyanide gas (or something similar).

Initially scientists thought it might be cold weather, the result of global warming and climate change, but autopsies on the birds and fish turned up toxic chemicals in their blood.

Water quality alone has also been ruled out, since the incidents are happening in North America, Europe and even New Zealand, and would not explain incidents that are happening inland in places like Arkansas. Scientists now believe it is an air-borne but water soluble toxin which has been building up in the atmosphere.

If the mass deaths continue to pile up an international investigation into the causes will be needed. Right now countries are investigating the causes independently of each other.

News media are now calling it the Aflockalypse.
