Animal Behavior, Methane Poisoning, Dead or Alive and on the move (+ interactive map)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When Planet X entered the inner Solar System in late 2002 - early 2003, it was not just the Earth that reacted, as it did with an increase in earthquakes, volcanism and extreme weather, the animal life on Earth also started showing signs of the approaching monster.

The most noticeable symptoms were:

  • Crazy Animal Behaviour:  Reports of bizarre behaviour including animal attacks from normally passive creatures and spiders spinning webs over whole fields.
  • Confused Animals:  Whales and dolphins stranding themselves on beaches in droves or getting lost upstream in coastal rivers.
  • Large fish and bird kills:  Flocks of birds falling dead from the sky and shoals of fish dying and floating to the surface of lakes, rivers and washing up along coastlines.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Crazy Animal Behaviour

Reports of crazy animal behaviour have included sheep that charged a farmer’s wife off a cliff, deer attacking a car and rabbits biting pedestrians.  Spiders have spun webs over whole fields and caterpillar larvae have covered whole trees in silk.

As usual, the Zetas explain the true causes:

http://www.zetatalk.com/transfor/t154.htm (Jan 11th 2003)

Animal behavior also has been noted as almost crazed, where animals normally passive and seeking to avoid confrontation will attack with provocation, or fly in the wrong direction during migration. This is due to signals the animals or insects get from the core of the Earth, signals not known to man, but nonetheless there.  [……]  Spiders weaving webs to an extreme so that acres are covered under webs, get noted, but the base behavior is normal for a spider.  EOZT

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Confused Animals

Other erratic behaviour among animals included a seeming loss of direction with whales and dolphins swimming inland and stranding themselves on beaches.

Unreliable Compasses  (March 28th, 2009)

The compass is unreliable for the past few years, and lately has gotten very extreme in its variance. Many animals and insects have a biological compass, recording during migrations where that compass laid, and when taking a return trip relying on the recording to guide them back. If the Earth's N Pole swings away from the press of Planet X, which is increasingly pointing its N Pole at the Earth, then these animals are not given correct clues and aim for land or up a river. Sad to say, this will only get worse as the last weeks and the pole shift loom on the horizon.   EOZT

Are due to the Magnetic Clash   (July 1st, 2006)

The compass anomaly, swinging to the East, is indicative of the Earth adjusting to the approach of Planet X and the clash of their magnetic fields. The change is indicative of a clash in magnetic fields as Planet X comes ever closer to the Earth, their fields touching. It is the combined field that Earth must adjust to, and continue to adjust to, not the exact position of the N Pole of Planet X within these fields, and the Sun's magnetic field enters into the equation too. This dramatic change, noted by a conscientious tracker, checking dual compasses daily for years, indicates that the Earth is trying to align side-by-side with Planet X, bringing its magnetic N Pole to point toward the Sun, as Planet X is currently doing in the main. These adjustments are temporary, and change about, as magnets can make dramatic and swift changes in their alignment with each other. Put a number of small magnets on a glass, with iron ore dust, and move a large magnet about under them, and watch the jerking about they do. Are we saying the Earth's magnetic field is going to get more erratic in the future, dramatically so? There is no question that this will be one of the signs that will come, yet another not covered by the Global Warming excuse.   EOZT

Large fish and bird kills

Hundreds, if not thousands, of these events have taken place with the frequency increasing year on year.  Poignant examples include the 20 tonnes of dead herring which washed ashore in Norway and 1200 pelicans found on a beach in Peru.

Earth Farts  (January 9th, 2007)

We have explained, in great detail, that the stretch zone does not register great quakes when rock layers pull apart and sink, as this is a silent Earth change. Nancy has carefully documented breaking water and gas mains, derailing trains, dislocating bridge abutments, mining accidents, and outbreaks of factory explosions, showing that these have occurred in rashes on occasion, when the rock layers pulled apart. [……]  In September-October of 2005, a smell of rotten eggs was sensed from LA to Thunder Bay on Lake Superior to the New England states and throughout the South-Eastern US. We explained at that time that this was due to rock layers being pulled apart, releasing gas from moldering vegetation trapped during prior pole shifts, when rock layers were jerked about, trapping vegetation. We explained in March of 2002 that black water off the coast of Florida was caused by this phenomena. Do these fumes cause people to sicken, and birds to die? Mining operations of old had what they called the canary in a birdcage, to warn the miners of methane gas leaks. Birds are very sensitive to these fumes, and die, and this is indeed what happened in Austin, TX. Were it not for the explosions associated with gas leaks, it would be common knowledge that gas leaks sicken, as the body was not structured to breathe such air for long.   EOZT

 

Zetatalk Explanation  (January 8th, 2011)

Dead fish and birds falling from the sky are being reported worldwide, suddenly. This is not a local affair, obviously. Dead birds have been reported in Sweden and N America, and dead fish in N America, Brazil, and New Zealand. Methane is known to cause bird dead, and as methane rises when released during Earth shifting, will float upward through the flocks of birds above. But can this be the cause of dead fish? If birds are more sensitive than humans to methane release, fish are likewise sensitive to changes in the water, as anyone with an aquarium will attest. Those schools of fish caught in rising methane bubbles during sifting of rock layers beneath them will inevitably be affected. Fish cannot, for instance, hold their breath until the emergency passes! Nor do birds have such a mechanism.   EOZT

Grasshopper outbreak reported in Valley County-

CASCADE, Idaho -- There's a big problem happening right now in Valley County. Hundreds of thousands of grasshoppers are damaging crops and fields, and the Idaho Department of Agriculture is now getting involved to help fight the outbreak.

"We started seeing an increase in population back around Fourth of July and since then it just really exploded," said Mike Cooper with the Idaho Department of Agriculture Plant Industries.

The hot, dry weather is providing the perfect conditions for the grasshoppers to multiply. Cooper says more than 24,000 acres in Valley County have been affected by the grasshoppers. The hardest hit areas include: Cascade, Donnelly, Round Valley and Lake Fork just south of McCall.

"A lot of ranchers started noticing they were losing hay fields, pastures. Grain crops were being damaged," said Cooper.

While Cooper doesn't have a finally tally on the amount of crops and fields damaged, he says some ranchers have had to move their cattle to better pastures for feeding.

By state standards, a grasshopper outbreak reaches damaging levels when there are eight grasshoppers per square yard. Cooper says there have been more than 200 grasshoppers per square yard in parts of Valley County.

The state is mandated under the Idaho Plant Pest Act to assist ranchers and farmers when they request help for controlling grasshoppers and Mormon cricket outbreaks. The state began spraying on Thursday, and they hope to complete the task by mid-week.

"The immediate results that we've had from the ranchers we've already sprayed is they seem to be happy with the amount of mortality they're seeing," said Cooper.

Farmers and ranchers are splitting the cost of treatment with the state. The price tag to fight this outbreak is not yet known. Cooper says the state is only spraying the areas that farmers and ranchers requested assistance, and that the state has provided notification to those who might live or work around those sprayed areas.

Thunderstorms blamed for dead fish in Mary Stevens Park

Dead fish in the lake near the children’s play area. 

HUNDREDS of dead fish were found floating in a lake at a Stourbridge park after thunderstorms starved them of oxygen.

Heavy downpours on Tuesday (July 23) caused rapid pressure changes and reduced the amount of oxygen in the pond at Mary Stevens Park.

Park manager Stuart Mitchell said he was informed about the demise of the fish yesterday (Wednesday) morning.

Explaining what had caused it, he said: “It was the thunderstorms, it takes the oxygen out of the water.”

He said the council would remove the fish tomorrow morning (Friday July 26).

Councillor Heather Rogers, chairman of Friends of Mary Stevens Park, said she was not surprised to see the dead fish, which she believed were largely common carp and roach.

She said: “We had this problem three or four years ago when we had a period of drought; the level of the water went down and there was a lack of oxygen.

“This time we think it could have been the storm. The water level was very low.”

Cllr Rogers added: “If people are feeding the ducks, I would ask them not to leave too much white bread if they are not eating it as if the water level is low and there isn’t much of a gap between the surface and the silt then it is going to fill it up.”

Natalie Timbrell was at the park with her three children on Wednesday (July 24) afternoon.

She noticed the fish while feeding the ducks and said: “It is upsetting for the kids to see. We come to the park three or four times a week and sometimes see the fish come up to the top when we’re feeding the ducks.”

Paralyzed Ravens Being Found Throughout the Peace

image

  • Jul 25, 2013

Lynsey Kitching, Reporter

Birds are meant to fly, but they also need their legs to help them take off and to hop around on the ground while eating their food.
Leona Green has been a local wildlife rehabilitator for over 30 years. Under a permit from the Ministry of Environment and a Federal permit, Green has been very involved in rehabilitating animals in the peace for decades.
Her latest focus is on ravens, a handful of which are being reported as having their legs paralyzed.
Green says, “Several weeks ago, the beginning of May, I began receiving calls about ravens with their legs paralyzed. Initially I didn’t think much of it. They would generally die before they could get them to me. What I was saying was, if they died, just dispose of the carcass.”
However the calls continued.
“This snowballed and there are so many of them that people are phoning about. I only received a few that got here before they died. The ravens couldn’t eat by themselves because they couldn’t hop around. I was feeding them, they were eating then they would die anyway. Then this got to be quite a thing,” she explains in disbelief.
Green then brought the situation to the attention of the conservation officer who advised her to call the wildlife vet down in Victory, who Green has known for years; Dr. Helen Schwantje, the Provincial Wildlife Vet for Fish and Habitat Wildlife Management, Ministry of Forest Lands and Resource Operations.
No one knows what is causing the paralysis.
Green explains the legs become paralyzed and then after a short time, the legs atrophy and become totally useless and stiff.
“So far, I’m crossing my fingers, it’s only been in ravens. It’s not as if they were in one given area and getting into something, it’s widespread,” says Green.
Reports have come in to her from Fort St. John, Chetwynd, Dawson Creek and Tumbler Ridge. “One bird from Tumbler Ridge and it died within 24 hours although I was feeding it; another one which died within a few hours; two more that c ame in from Dawson Creek,” says Green.
The concern now is whether what is happening to the ravens could be transferred to other birds or animals. “Is it something that could go into others?” asks Green, “This is what we’re about right now. We do not know what is causing it, we can’t even guess,” she says.
The wildlife team is hoping by sending some ravens to the wildlife lab in Abbotsford operated through the Ministry of Agriculture, called the Animal Health Centre, they will get some answers.
Green still needs to collect at least two more ravens to have sufficient data for the lab.
She says the birds can come to her dead or alive. “Even if the raven is dead, on examination I would know whether it died of the problem we are having.”
Here in town Donna and Bailey Beale are authorized by the conservation officer to accept the animal and bring it to Green.
They can be reached at 250-242-4975, 250-242-7160 or 250-242-7556.
Donna Beale says, “People need to not keep the birds because we need to find out why and if it will spread.”
Brad Lacey from the Conservation Office says, “It’s an unusual occurrence and what it’s called is a localised cluster meaning there is a number of similar cases occurring. It’s an unusual aliment that hasn’t been identified yet.”
Dr. Schwantje would like to stress that whatever is happening to the ravens is not West Nile virus because it is not typical in our area and it doesn’t present in the fashion the ravens are showing.
The examination by the lab will determine if the leg paralysis for the ravens is due to injury, infection or biological/environmental factors.
Dr. Schwatje has provided a guideline for how people should prepare and handle a bird if found:
“All birds must be in good diagnostic condition (limited decomposition or scavenging). Dead birds must be handled using common sense sanitary precautions to reduce risks to human health. Carcasses should be handled using a shovel or, if one is not available, disposable gloves or inverted plastic bags, followed by thorough hand-washing with soap and water (20 seconds to remove debris). Avoid contact with feces, blood, body fluids, & sharp parts of the bird. Carcasses should be: a) stored in double plastic bags b) in bags clearly labeled with an attached tag stating date of death, location & species c) kept cool until further instructions are provided by the investigating Wildlife Agency representative.”
On top of the phone numbers provided above, folks can phone 1-866-431-bird or the conservation office at 1-877-952-7277.

Feds declare Indian River Lagoon dolphin deaths as unusual

Jul 24 2013

A federal panel has officially declared the deaths of more than 50 bottlenose dolphins this year in the Indian River Lagoon as unusual, potentially freeing up more federal dollars and other resources to study the die-off.

This week’s declaration comes at the recommendation of the Working Group on Marine Mammal Unusual Mortality Events, a panel of marine mammal health experts. They based the designation on the higher rate of bottlenose dolphin deaths since Jan. 1.

At least 54 bottlenose dolphins have died in the lagoon this year, almost three times the historical average. The elevated dolphin deaths have happened in the northern and central Indian River Lagoon in Brevard County.

Biologists estimate more than 660 bottlenose dolphins live exclusively in the lagoon.
All age groups of bottlenose dolphins have been dying, but the majority are older adults. The dolphins are found very thin.

Unusual Mortality Event designations are made by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, under the Marine Mammal Protection Act.

The act defines an Unusual Mortality Event as marine mammal deaths or standings that are unexpected, at an elevated rate and that demand immediate response.

Biologists use seven criteria to determine whether a mortality event is "unusual."

As part of the formal federal investigation, NOAA is putting together an investigative team to review data and decide how to proceed.

In April, NOAA made a similar designation regarding manatees dying in the lagoon. That unusual die-off claimed at least 111 manatees.

Biologists are also investigating the death of 250 to 300 brown pelicans earlier this year.

Lagoon dolphins have seen two previous Unusual Mortality Events since 1991: in 2001 and 2008. In both cases, investigators could not determine cause.

Earlier this month, a NOAA researcher in South Carolina isolated three groups of toxins from tiny algae that sticks to seaweed called Gracilaria, or red drift algae. Scientists gathered the drift algae in late May from just south of Minutemen Causeway in Cocoa Beach.

Manatees and fish eat the drift algae.

Some biologists suspect fish could be taking in the toxins by eating the algae, in turn sickening the dolphins and pelicans that eat them.

But NOAA and state wildlife officials say the toxins are just one of many possible culprits responsible for the die-offs.

Hundreds of fish dead in Lake George in Wales

Die-off likely caused by warm water

Published : Monday, 22 Jul 2013, 1:56 AM EDT

WALES, Mass. (WWLP) - The Hampden County town ofWales will reach out to the state today after hundreds of dead fish were found in Lake George.

Susan Cadieux of the town Board of Health told 22News the mass die-off was likely caused by extremely warm water temperatures.

She said when the temperature rises, the fish can run out of oxygen.

It's unclear which species were affected.

She told 22News the die-off has nothing to do with weed control chemicals that are put in the lake every year.

The town will ask the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife if the lake needs further testing.

Raptors Falling From Sky Dead in Australia (July 19)
Bird experts and scientists are left puzzled as birds fall dead from north Queensland skies.

Black kites are among the few raptor species which gather in flocks.

Testing has so far excluded bird flu and Newcastle disease, but the cause of the latest spate of deaths is still a mystery.

Biosecurity Queensland has confirmed it is testing "several kites in relation to unexplained deaths in the tropical north Queensland region''.

"The exact number of bird deaths is unknown and estimates are not available at this stage of the investigation,'' a spokesman told The Courier-Mail.

He said a range of tests were being undertaken for potential causes.

"Laboratory testing is ongoing to determine the cause of this mortality incident.''

Bird of prey expert James Biggs said it was highly unusual for raptors to die in large numbers or, literally, drop dead from the sky.

"If it is not disease, it could possibly be poisoning, but without being familiar with the ongoing tests it is hard to know,'' the Cairns Tropical Zoo bird supervisor said.

Black kites prey on insects, small animals and birds, and can spend all day soaring on the wing, hawking insects out of the air and eating them on the fly.

"They are often seen hovering around fires, like cane burn-off, where they catch the insects pushed up on the updraft,'' Mr Biggs said.

"Whatever it is that is killing them I'd be very keen to know why. It's a puzzle."

Milky tint, dead fish found in Jones Falls

water_20130718164015_JPG

BALTIMORE - Around 200 dead fish have been found in the Jones Falls, in which state environmental officials are also investigating the cause of a milky tint in the water.

The fish kill has been spotted near President Street and stretching down to the Inner Harbor. State environmental officials say preliminary testing revealed there was no oxygen present but couldn’t say why, although too many nutrients in the water is one possible cause. Excess nutrients are usually caused by algae or sewage runoff.

Maryland Department of Environment spokesman Jay Apperson said they responded about noon for reports of a fish kill. Once there, he said, investigators found the Inner Harbor with a milky tint to it and dead fish popping up. They are continuing to investigate, he said.

Mystery as 300 stingrays are found washed up on a Mexican beach

  • The stingrays were found on a beach in Veracruz, Mexico
  • One theory suggests fisherman dumped them when upon realizing they would be unable to sell them
  • Other witnesses have said the tide washed them ashore just before sunrise

By Daily Mail Reporter

Mexican authorities are investigating the death of at least 300 stingrays found on a beach of the Gulf coast state of Veracruz.

Residents and visitors first spotted the dead rays on Tuesday on the Chachalacas beach in the town of Ursulo Galvan and posted photos on social media.

Ursulo Galvan Mayor Martin Verdejo says it's possible the stingrays could have been abandoned by fishermen after being trapped in their nets.

Sea Turtles Disoriented on Florida Island

At least six female sea turtles have become disoriented this summer on Anna Maria Island in Florida, unable to find their way back to the water after coming to shore to nest.

Suzi Fox, the director of the Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch, told ABC News the turtles have been found under rocks, on roads, and in pathways. There was even one stuck under a beach chair, she said.

"They climb up two-foot rock spaces or up pathways, [and] they mentally become disoriented about which way is back to the sea because they can't turn their way from side to side," Fox said. "They are crawling around for a couple of hours."

It is typical for female sea turtles to come ashore to nest, Fox said. But generally they head straight back to the water. It is unusual for them to have trouble finding their way back to sea.

She said her staff at the conservancy often had to help lead them back to shore, which is not an easy task when dealing with animals that according to the Sea Turtle Conservancy, can weigh as much as 1,300 pounds.

Fox says 256 female turtles have come ashore to nest this summer, meaning that only a small percentage have actually become disoriented. Still, that is already three times as many as she saw in the past 15 years combined.

"Why I have had six this year has been in a mystery," she said.

Although she does not know for certain, she said the disorientation might be connected to how the shoreline receded after Tropical Storm Gabby last year. She also said the Department for Environmental Protection is building a parking lot and a deck on the beach. Consequently, the turtles have lost land to make their nests, which becomes inherently confusing for them.

"What they have been coming up and nesting in the last 10 years is gone," Fox said. "The more habitat there is, the more nests they can create."

There are plans to replenish the shore, but they will take a while to implement, she said.

However, Fox said these incidents have not posed a threat to humans. Turtles do not want to be around people, and just want to get back to the water as quickly as possible - if they can find their way, she said.

But David Godfrey, the executive director of the Sea Turtle Conservancy, told ABC News that disorientation can pose a threat to turtles, which are classified as either endangered or threatened under the endangered species act.

"The state of Florida hosts 90 percent of sea turtle nesting in the united states," Godfrey said. "What happens on the beaches is vital to our sea turtle population."

How elephants invaded my childrens' school

Man-elephant conflict in India has escalated dangerously

A herd of elephants on the outskirts of Bangalore, India Photograph: AFP

Heard of "the dog ate my homework" excuse? A few weeks ago, my children had an even better excuse. Their school in Bangalore was shut for the day, after being taken over by a herd of 15 wild elephants.

The panicked pachyderms moved into Bangalore's plush IT district of Whitefield, as neighbouring schools and offices hastily shut down, and a massive crowd of onlookers gathered. But much as the children enjoyed it, the incursion masked deeper, graver problems. The herd ended up killing four people- including a journalist trying to take photographs-before they were finally cornered by forest officials and driven back to the jungle.

Elephant-man conflicts have become increasingly common in India. Previously, most of these conflicts took place in villages bordering forests. Now, elephants are straying into cities.  This week, a herd of 11 elephants wandered into a stadium in the city of Rourkela in eastern India. An estimated 300 people are killed by elephants every year in India, and casualties on the other side are almost equally heavy.
