Note: Kinda like the family of four that was found dead in Henry Hagg Lake (Oregon) in August, mentioned in the 2014-08-25 update...

2015-04-03 - Porcupine fish wash ashore dead at Taranaki Beach (New Zealand):

2015-04-03 - Large numbers of fish dying at coastal Lantau Island off Hong Kong (China):

Quote: "Thousands of dead fish found off Hong Kong's Lantau island leaves scientists mystified..."

Quote: "While he said he had not visited the scene, Chan suspected the changing season from spring to summer might have proved devastating for the fish."

Note: Damn, that was a short spring, only lasted two weeks! So summer now lasts 5.5 months?! I didn't get the memo on that...

2015-04-03 - Thousands of 'blue bottom' jellyfish wash ashore and die at coastal Pensacola Beach (Florida):

Quote: "The lion was found dead in thicket of gando baval near the lake. There were no marks of outer injury on its body but veterinarians who conducted its post-mortem has concluded that the big cat died due to respiratory failure."

Note: Say, that's what hydrogen sulfide poisoning causes: respiratory paralysis. And it's a heavier-than-air gas that tends to accumulate in low-lying areas, like bodies of water, such as the lake where this lion died. Of course it's not just lions dying, but people and other animals too...

Quote: "This week, the owner of the cats noticed something was wrong. 'They were vomiting and foaming at the mouth,' Tergin explained. Four of them were later found on her deck..dead."

Note: There used to be numerous feral cats in my neighborhood too, but they've been gone for many months now. They have to be dead because cats are very territorial and they don't just move on. I don't let my cats outdoors at all anymore. One breath of hydrogen sulfide can kill a person - and cause foaming at the mouth too - and cats are way smaller than people, so they're even more vulnerable. Multiple people have mysteriously died foaming at the mouth too, just like these cats...

2015-04-16 - Fish dying in pond at Cubbon Park in Bengaluru (India):

2015-04-17 - Sardine population collapsing, sardine fishing to be closed for the year, on the West Coast:

Quote: "The mid-season closure highlights fishery managers' intense concern about a collapse that has decimated sardine stocks in recent years. Today, there are only 10 percent as many sardines in the water as there were in 2007. Council designee Michele Culver of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife proposed the closure, calling it an 'urgent action.'"

Note: The die-off situation is getting dire on the West Coast. It's not just the sardines, but sea lions and birds and starfish dying off hard, whales washing ashore dead, and probably a lot of other living things are dying too, from Mexico to Canada. The West Coast is downwind/downstream of the mammoth dead zone known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which has surely been pluming hydrogen sulfide for some time now, possibly since 2007, when the sardine collapse began, or even earlier, albeit at a lower level back then. There've been plenty of people mysteriously dying along the West Coast too...

2015-04-17 - Wolf population drops to 3 at Isle Royale National Park (Michigan):

Quote: "They have urged the National Park Service to bring more wolves to the island to reinvigorate the gene pool.

'These are the last dying gasps,' he said."
