2015-01-16 - Dogs mysteriously dying at waterfront communities near coastal Annapolis (Maryland):

Note: The water in the Inner Harbor in coastal Baltimore (Maryland) suddenly turned milky green-white in 2013, all the fish died, and a 'rotten egg' odor was in the air, mentioned in the 2013-07-18 update. That was the chemocline rising abruptly to the surface, smothering all the fish and releasing methane and hydrogen sulfide that had accumulated at the bottom into the air. Shortly after that, an anomalous number of people started being found dead in the water in the Inner Harbor. Another man was just found dead in the Inner Harbor in the Fells Point area of the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, mentioned in the 2015-01-10 update. A similar event may have happened near Annapolis, causing these dogs near the water to sicken and die. They won't find hydrogen sulfide because it breaks down fast in the body, within hours, and they probably don't even get the corpses that fast, much less autopsy them, and since they're not looking for hydrogen sulfide then they're not apt to find it in any case...

2015-01-28 - Very rare megamouth shark washes ashore dead in Marigondon (Philippine Islands), 66th ever seen:

Quote: "The megamouth shark is so uncommon that until recently, some still considered it a cryptid, a creature so rare that it couldn't be confirmed by science."

Quote: "The 66th megamouth shark ever seen washed ashore this morning in Marigondon, a port in the Albay province of the Philippines. Initial reports suggest the shark (Megachasma pelagios) was approximately five metres (16 ft.) in length, but until a necropsy can be performed, the finer details about the animal (including the cause of death) will remain a mystery. Sightings like this are rare ... so rare, in fact, that when the first megamouth was spotted in 1976, a new shark family, genus and species had to be created! These bizarre deep-diving animals are characterised by their bulbous snouts, loose skin, poorly calcified skeletons and (of course) their mega-mouths, which extend upward beyond the eyes."
