2013 - AUG - Animal Die-Offs

Useful link for tracking mass animal deaths:

2013-08-29 - More than 100 elk drop dead at ranch near Las Vegas (Nevada):

Note: This event reminds me of the 500 endangered saiga antelope that dropped dead in May 2012, as mentioned in the 2012-05-22 update. And 12,000 more saiga antelope dropped dead on May 27 in 2010 too:

Note: It couldn't really be anything they drank or ingested, nor a disease, else their corpses would have been scattered across a wider area as the weakest succumbed and the next weakest and so on. So it was something that killed all of them and did so quickly. That sounds like a 'knockdown agent', which is what hydrogen sulfide is. Also, that first mass saiga antelope death was in May of 2010, and the birds dropping dead from the sky in Beebe (Arkansas) was on New Years Eve in late 2010 - so obviously this all began before the Fukushima event happened...

Quote: "Hundreds of Muscovites have noted the trend, many with online posts and graphic photographs of the so-called 'zombie pigeons.' One Twitter user said a family meal was interrupted when an afflicted pigeon sitting on the ledge of an open window frame lost its balance and fell into the kitchen. 'I saw a pigeon sitting right in the street, its bill resting on the ground,' another person wrote. 'It's like a bird apocalypse.'"

Note: Birds are light and have high rates of respiration, which makes them much more susceptible to gases than human beings. That's the reason for the 'canary in the coal mine' thing. These birds probably got a whiff of hydrogen sulfide, which is neurotoxic and can cause disorientation, memory loss, unconsciousness, death...
