2015 - MAR - Animal Die-Offs

2015-03-01 - Around 50 birds fall out of sky onto truck and die, in Spring Hill (Tennessee):

Quote: "Officials on scene say they have never seen anything like this."

Note: Driver says they 'swooped down'. Yeah, they might've been DEAD, but still with some forward momentum. In early 2011 (about two days after all those birds dropped dead in Beebe, Arkansas) I smelled something odd and right after that a flock of birds fell out of the sky dead and landed with a series of muffled thuds onto the garage across the street from me. That was about a year and a half before birds began mysteriously disappearing over the ocean between Scotland and Britain, the so-called 'Birdmuda Triangle', mentioned in the 2012-08-29 update...

2015-03-01 - Hundreds of fish found dead in the Columbia River in the Bridgeton area in Portland (Oregon):

Quote: "Scores of dead marine life have been washing up on Pasir Ris beach over the weekend. While reports have emerged about Changi fish farms suffering massive losses, it seems like wild fish have not been spared either. Marine creatures - including puffer fish, eels, horseshoe crabs and cuttlefish - have been turning up lifeless on the island's north-eastern shores."

2015-03-02 - Shellfish population experiences 99% die-off in harbor in coastal Whangarei (New Zealand):

2015-03-02 - Three sperm whales wash ashore dead in 3 days in Tamil Nadu (India):

2015-03-03 - Thousands of fish and some ducks found dead in lagoon in Buenos Aires (Argentina):

Quote: "The incident was reported by neighbors, who say the killing was due to toxic waste spill and others point out that 'water turned a deep green color suddenly'."

Note: That was the chemocline rising abruptly to the surface, smothering all the fish, and releasing whatever methane and/or hydrogen sulfide that had accumulated at the bottom into the atmosphere. That exact same thing happened in the Inner Harbor in coastal Baltimore (Maryland) in 2013 - the water suddenly changed color to milky green-white, there was a 'rotten egg' odor in the air, and all the fish died, mentioned in the 2013-07-18 update. It's happened at some bodies of water in the Philippine Islands and in Santa Monica Bay (California) too, at least...

2015-03-07 - 41 buffalo die of unknown cause in Darjipura (India):

2015-03-07 - Thousands more fish wash ashore dead in coastal Singapore:

2015-03-08 - Massive numbers of sea lions dying along the coast in California:

Quote: "In January and February alone, 1,450 malnourished or dying sea lion pups have washed up on shore – compared with just 68 in the same period last year."

Note: So that's an increase of about 2000% in terms of sea lion mortality in one year...

Quote: "Mystery surrounds the discovery of 19 dead turtles on an island within the proposed Tun Mustapha Marine Park in Kudat."

2015-03-09 - More than 100 cattle die from unknown cause in coastal Gujarat (India):

Note: They may be right about grass poisoning, sort of. When hydrogen sulfide blows off the ocean, some of it will adsorb onto adsorbent materials, which includes grass. And it's a deadly poison. These cows may have been poisoned by touching contaminated grass or, even worse, eating it. Being a peninsula nation, India is the Florida of India. This area is on the western coast too, the coast most likely to be hit by methane and/or hydrogen sulfide from the ocean due to the rotation of the Earth...
