2013-06-24 - Unknown 'disease' killing desert bighorn sheep near Las Vegas (Nevada):

Note: They mention these sheep having pneumonia, and their fear that the pneumonia will spread. Pneumonia isn't a disease, it's a symptom. It's inflammation of the lungs, and it CAN be caused by bacteria or virus, but it can also be caused by breathing poison gas. They shouldn't be assuming these sheep have a disease when the cause may actually be environmental. Actually, they shouldn't be assuming anything at all...

2013-06-22 - Dolphin found dead on the banks of the Mechi River in Jhapa (Nepal):

2013-06-22 - Fifteen peacocks found dead in Kharvandi (India):

2013-06-21 - More bumblebees drop dead, along 4 city blocks in Hillsboro (Oregon):

Quote: "A Hillsboro spokesperson said that the city hasn’t sprayed the Linden trees in that area since March."

Quote: "Earlier this week DOA and the Xerces Society were called to investigate in Wilsonville after more than 50,000 bees from 300 colonies were found dead and dying near 55 European Linden trees that were recently sprayed with the pesticide Safari."

Note: I mentioned the Wilsonville bumblebee mass mortality event in the 2013-06-19 update. I mentioned then that I was noting that for the record, to see if a pattern develops, though they had recently sprayed some pesticide near there. In this case though, no spraying in three months, so I find it highly unlikely that that was the culprit this time and by inference it may not have been the culprit the other time either. Hydrogen sulfide is blowing around the atmosphere. It is deadly to all oxygen-using life. Bumblebees are far smaller than humans, so it would take far less to kill them. Oregon is a coastal state, on the West Coast, downwind of the giant dead zone known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which is surely pluming hydrogen sulfide now...

Quote: "Sometimes you see them up at the surface, trying to swim but just struggling and dying ... I wonder what is causing it."

Quote: "This is a very significant fish die-off. Based on phone calls from citizens to our offices, media reports and from our own observations, this is one of the largest die-offs we’ve had in many years in this area..."

She says the foam appeared to be coming from the mouth of the Virgin River and stretched about eight miles down to Echo Bay."

Note: Yummy, I'm sure mysterious foam is just great to have in the drinking water supply there. The fish love it to death! Got Mystery Foam? (tm)

Quote: "Four dead bighorn sheep found in the California desert along with reports of other sickly animals in the region have prompted an investigation into a possible outbreak of animal pneumonia."

Note: Breathing hydrogen sulfide can damage the lungs and weaken the immune system, making pneumonia more likely and more apt to be fatal. They mention 'catching pneumonia'. You don't 'catch pneumonia'. Pneumonia isn't a disease, but a symptom, an inflammation of the lungs, and can have many causes, including viruses, bacteria and breathing poison gas...
