Mass Animal Deaths Worldwide


First Created 10/1/1012

 

Revelation 8:9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

(Note: I know that these current events are not this particular prophecy because we have not made it far enough for this prophecy to begin. I just find it interesting and strangely similar.)

Dead Fish, Birds Wash Up On Lake Erie Shores In Latest Mystery

Well, it certainly is eerie.

Tens of thousands of dead fish, along with dead seagulls, washed up on the shores of Lake Erie on Wednesday afternoon in yet another mysterious mass animal death.

Rick Nicholls, Member of Provincial Parliament for the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario, is mystified by the mass Lake Erie animal death, telling NewsNet5: “First thing that crossed my mind, is there any potential danger to humans from a health point of view? Secondly, as I got more and more into it, what’s the cause of this sudden fish kill in the lake?”

Samples of the dead fish and dead birds have been sent to a lab for analysis. Currently, the Ontario Ministries of the Environment in Canada is pursuing several avenues, looking into whether a spill occurred that negatively impacted the ecosystem, according to NewsNet5.

Another possibility for the Lake Erie fish deaths is an inversion. An inversion is a natural phenomenon that occurs when cold water, which has lower oxygen levels, goes to the lake’s surface. This can suffocate the fish, according to CNN.

“Essentially it’s a rolling over of the lake,” Ontario Ministry of the Environment spokeswoman Kate Jordan told Canada’s Chatham Daily News on Tuesday. “Something – whether it be a storm, or cooler temperatures at night, or strong winds – triggers a temperature change in the lake.”…………

Peru Bird Deaths: Peruvian Government Warns Against Beaches After Mysterious Pelican Deaths

LIMA, Peru — Peru’s Health Ministry is urging people to stay away from Pacific beaches from Lima northward after recent large-scale deaths of pelicans and dolphins.

Neither the Health Ministry nor Peru’s oceanographic institute has determined the cause of the deaths, and there is no indication the deaths of the birds and the mammals are related.

And Saturday’s warning did not indicate why it might be dangerous to visit beaches. Peru’s agricultural safety service ruled out Friday that the pelicans could have died of avian flu, which could be contagious to humans.

Since February, some 877 dolphins and, more recently, at least 1,200 pelicans have been found dead on Peruvian beaches for unexplained reasons.

Local fishermen and restaurant owners said Saturday’s warning hasn’t had much effect on their businesses.

It’s the low season for Peruvian beach-goers, in any case.

A check of Lima’s beaches found no dead animals on the shore but sanitation crews were cleaning up an unusually large amount of garbage and debris including plastic bags and bottles and pieces of wood.

More mystery bird deaths reported, this time in Louisiana

(Reuters) – As if the deaths of 5,000 birds in Arkansas were not strange enough, Louisiana wildlife experts on Tuesday are investigating the deaths of 500 birds along a stretch of highway in Pointe Coupee Parish.

The Louisiana birds included some red-winged blackbirds, the same type discovered dead in Arkansas.

The mix of blackbirds and starlings were discovered on Monday between New Roads and Morganza, Louisiana, according to Bo Boehringer, press secretary for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. That area includes the False River Regional Airport.

Boehringer said the birds were sent to labs in Georgia and Wisconsin to find out how they died, tests which could take a week.

“Our staff veterinarian is not ready to speculate at this time,” said Boehringer, regarding the cause of death.

The Louisiana report comes days after some 5,000 birds, mostly red-winged blackbirds, fell from the sky in Beebe, Arkansas on New Year’s Eve. Tests by Arkansas veterinary officials concluded Monday they died after massive trauma.

One theory is that birds were spooked by New Year’s fireworks and flew into buildings or other objects. Another theory is that severe weather caused the deaths.

“We’re leaning more toward a stress event,” said Arkansas Game and Fish Commission spokesman Keith Stephens, noting that severe weather had already left the area.

The Arkansas commission also is trying to determine what caused the deaths of up to 100,000 fish over a 20-mile stretch of the Arkansas River near a dam in Ozark, 125 miles west of Beebe. The fish were discovered December 30.

Stephens said disease may be the culprit, since almost all the fish were one species — bottom-feeding drum.

Stephens said the Arkansas events do not appear related.

Thousands of dolphins are mysteriously dying in Peru

More than 3,000 dolphins have washed up dead on the beaches of Peru so far this year — and nobody knows why. Hundreds of dolphins first began showing up dead on Peruvian beaches in February. A theory that the animals had eaten toxic fish wasn’t proven out, and some scientists now say that a “sonic blast” related to acoustic testing by oil companies might be the culprit. This sort of testing has been stopped in the U.S. due to concerns over the impact it has on dolphins’ health.
