2017-09-06 - Pile of monkeys found dead in forest reserve in Uttar Pradesh (India):

Quote: "After a preliminary inquiry, the DFO ruled out foul play. He said he suspected ‘heart failure’ to be the reason for the deaths. However, eminent wildlife conservationist Dr Vijay Prakash Singh, who is also convenor of Terai Nature Conservation Society (TNCS), suspected pesticide to be the reason for the sudden death of monkeys. Singh said, 'The residue of pesticides cannot be traced after 24 hours, However, heart failure en masse is somewhat surprising.'"

Note: Hydrogen sulfide, a neurotoxin, is just like a pesticide, it causes 'heart failure' and it disappears quickly within bodies - just like what they're saying happened to these monkeys. I highly doubt this was any pesticide. And who sprays random jungle areas with pesticide anyway - it's not like they're growing crops there. Very similar to the people being found mysteriously dead with no injuries. Monkeys are basically little people...

2017-09-10 - More than 50 sparrows drop dead in Rolleston (New Zealand), 10 miles from the coast:

Quote: "The cause of death for more than 50 sparrows in Rolleston last month remains a mystery. SPCA inspectors removed the remains of more than 50 dead sparrows from the Moore St area in Rolleston on August 28, sending one bird away for testing. SPCA Canterbury chief executive Barry Helem? said the lab results had ruled out salmonella, but the bird's gut contents were too small to give a conclusive poisoning result. 'Most common reasons [for the deaths] would be disease or poisoning. While poison could not be proved in this case, it could still have been some form of poisoning,' Helem said."

Quote: "The ECan spokesperson said they did not know of any poison being used in the area that could have affected birds like sparrows. In July, hundreds of dead greenfinches were found at the Ellesmere Public Cemetery with no conclusive cause of death."

2017-09-10 - Fish washing ashore dead again in coastal Kuwait City (Kuwait):

2017-09-11 - Hundreds of sea birds washing ashore dead around the Bering Sea (Alaska):

Quote: "Hundreds of dead seabirds have been found washed ashore on sites from islands in the Bering Sea to villages north of the Bering Strait, signs of another large die-off in the warmed-up waters of the North Pacific Ocean. The dead birds are mostly northern fulmars and short-tailed shearwaters, species that migrate long distances to spend summers in waters off Alaska and other northern regions, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reported. Also in the mix are some kittiwakes, murres and auklets, the federal agency said."

Quote: "The Bering event is the latest in an 'unprecedented series of marine bird die-offs' over the last four years in waters from California to the Arctic, said Julia Parrish, executive director of the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team, or COASST, managed by the University of Washington. It indicates that the pattern is moving north, said Parrish, a professor at the UW's School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences."

2017-09-11 - Elephant found dead in the Ken River in reserve in Madhya Pradesh (India):

Quote: "A female elephant has drowned in Ken river in Panna National Park, leaving behind a mammoth puzzle for the park management because elephants are known to be strong, untiring swimmers."

Quote: "It is not clear how the largest terrestrial animal was drowned in the Ken river, which meanders through the tiger reserve from south to north for some 55 kms. Elephants can swim and are known to use their trunk to breathe like a snorkel in deep waters."

2017-09-12 - Whale found dead near d'Urville Island (New Zealand):

2017-09-13 - Unknown eyeless scary-looking sea creature washes up dead on beach in Texas City (Texas):

Quote: "Most biologists agreed that it must be some sort of fish but a few experts pegged it as a fangtooth snake-eel"

Note: All of the pics I looked at for fangtooth snake-eels shows them as having eyes, so it's not one of those. The teeth look wrong for that too. Can't tell for sure the size of the thing in the pic, but fangtooth snake-eels aren't even 3 feet long either. Maybe this thing is something new...

Karene Meyer says each time, police are called. 'They seem to be sick, doesn't seem to be rabies. The reason why they are saying they are sick is because they are not responding, moving or running away from them and they are listless. It's like they are dying,' said Meyer. Ross Township Police say they shoot and kill five to 10 animals a day, then toss them back into the woods."

2017-09-19 - Sea lice increasingly infesting and killing salmon around the world:

Quote: "A surge of parasitic sea lice is disrupting salmon farms around the world. The tiny lice attach themselves to salmon and feed on them, killing or rendering them unsuitable for dinner tables."

Quote: "The lice are actually tiny crustaceans that have infested salmon farms in the United States, Canada, Scotland, Norway and Chile, major suppliers of the high-protein, heart-healthy fish."

Note: Clearly the environment is changing in ways which favor these things...

A bunch of people died in Australia from 'thunderstorm asthma' a few months ago after rain storms there too. Rain won't just kill stuff where volcanoes AREN'T rumbling. It can happen anywhere...
