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

Two-headed pig born in China


This picture taken on April 10, 2013 shows a newly born two-headed pig in a village in Jiujiang, east China's Jiangxi province.

On the heels of recent news about a two-headed bull shark, a two-head pig has been born in a village in east China's Jianxi province, according to the news reports.

The photo shows a pig with two snouts, two ears and what appears to be a shared eye. A local veterinarian told the AFP news agency the animal is suffering a deformity and is unlikely to survive.

The deformity may be the same condition, called "axial bifurcation," that researchers determined was the cause of the two-headed bull shark in a study published this March in Journal of Fish Biology.

It results from an embryo splitting into two separate organisms, or twins, but the process is incomplete.

"Halfway through the process of forming twins, the embryo stops dividing," Michael Wagner, a researcher at Michigan State University, told LiveScience.

The mutation, he added, occurs across animals, including humans.

While rare, in addition to the pig shown here and the shark, two-headed turtles, snakes, kittens, and other critters have been reported in recent years.

Alarm as 'Mass Mortalities' of Marine Life Wash Ashore in Eastern UK (Apr 8)

An estimated count of 800,000 marine animals have washed ashore in a 10-mile stretch of Holderness coastline from Barmston to Bridlington.

In all, 150,000 velvet swimming crabs, 10,500 edible crabs, 2,000 common lobsters and a staggering 635,000 mussels have been lost.

Cuttlefish bones have been recorded along the length of the East Coast, as well as increased numbers of dead harbour porpoises on Lincolnshire beaches.

The death of hundreds of seabirds, found washed up on beaches from Aberdeenshire to North Yorkshire with over 200 dead or dying puffins has been recorded on Yorkshire beaches alone between Scarborough and Withernsea.

The RSPB have described it as the worst puffin “wreck” seen for half a century, with around 10 per cent of the puffin population lost at Bempton.

The Natural History Museum Strandings team says over 150 porpoises have washed up along the East Coast this year, with 12 reported on the Lincolnshire coast. Evidence from post-mortem examinations shows a high level of disease and bacterial infection, which is being attributed to the prolonged winter and stormy weather.

Fisherman have been unable to put out to sea because of the strong easterly winds and when they have been able to fish the catches have been low, less than half this time last year, with lobsters still dormant because of the unseasonally low temperatures.

Lifesavers and mayors demand answers over dead fish washing up on our shores

BEACHGOERS, lifesaving clubs and councils are united in demanding answers over the mass death of marine life littering local beaches.


They have welcomed a decision by the State Government, in the face of mounting public concern, to set up a taskforce of scientists to investigate the mass fish kill.

But they warn the findings must be acted upon to quell community concerns of a repeat event.

Seacliff Surf Life Saving president Andrew Chandler said he was eager to learn the outcome of the investigation.

"We need to know if it is a natural phenomenon or caused by humans to show us that we are not doing anything wrong as a community, or if it does come from pollution then this is something we must address," he said.

Thousands of dead fish have washed up along the foreshore at Moana Beach.

Adelaidenow has in the past week revealed:

SIXTEEN dolphins have mysteriously washed up on beaches in the past month;

TWO penguins were found dead locally, one at Holdfast Shores and the other at Seacliff, and;

TENS of thousands of small fish as well as snapper, whiting, kingfish and mulloway were found washed up in the sands between Brighton and Marino.

Henley Surf Life Saving Club president Neville Fielder said the spate of dead marine life was the worst in his 40 years at the beach.

"We had a lot of dead carp wash up on the shore a few years ago but that was nothing like this," Mr Fielder said.

Christies Beach Surf Life Saving Club president Ron Harwood said clubs urgently needed to know what was causing the fish to die.

"If it's a water issue we have to take whatever steps are necessary to keep people out of the water," Mr Harwood said.

Recfish SA executive director Gary Flack said the carnage of marine life along Adelaide's coast was unprecedented.

"The main concern is that is that they (the deaths) are ranging across a mix of species from shallow water fish like yellow fin whiting to reef dwellers like snapper," Mr Flack said.

Brighton Tackle and Fish owner Pete Whiting said an investigation by an independent body was needed to reassure the public the desalination plant was not to blame.

"The talk is all about the desal plant, it doesn't mean it is the desal plant but we need an independent inquiry," Mr Whiting said.

Holdfast Bay Mayor Ken Rollond said he wanted to learn whether pollution and run-off from creeks, rivers, and drains could be a cause of algal blooms.

"The investigation is a worthwhile thing, we need independent scientists," he said.

Onkaparinga Mayor Lorraine Rosenberg said it was crucial to find out if the cause was natural.

"We need to know whether it is natural or not, because if it's not then we have to look at what mechanisms can be done to prevent it," Ms Rosenberg said.

Onkaparinga councillor and former Surf Life Saving SA president Bill Jamieson said: "We need to work out what's happening with it because it's a pretty special gulf and a lot of unique species live down our way."

Biosecurity SA manager of aquatic pests Vic Neverauskas said the fact most of the dead fish were small, shallow-water species coupled with signs of irritated and swollen gills suggested an algal bloom was to blame.

Algal blooms, believed to be caused by a hotter-than-usual March, deplete oxygen in the water and cause fish to die.

Fisheries Minister Gail Gago said testing of fish and water samples would be completed as soon as possible.

"To date, pathology tests show no evidence of disease, with evidence so far tending to suggest the predominantly juvenile fish that have died have been subjected to heat stress or lower oxygen levels consistent with algal blooms," Ms Gago said.

"(However) all findings will be made public."

Trinidad environmentalists investigate mystery death of hundreds of black  vultures

Font size: Decrease fontEnlarge font
imageEnvironmental experts viewing dead birds at Chaguaramas in  West Trinidad.

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, Tuesday April 9, 2013 - The  Environmental Management Authority (EMA) says it is unable to identify any  environmental reasons why more than 100 black vultures (Coragyps atratus) died  in West Trinidad on Monday.

The EMA said it is also working on the theory that the birds may have been  feeding on the carcass of an animal which had been poisoned.

“We can’t identify an environmental cause as such that they were exposed to.  There were 150 birds, we estimated. There was nothing else in the vicinity. We  have been liaising with the Poultry Surveillance Unit, which is part of the  National Disease Centre, to see if it was a case of the avian flu,”  EMA  chief executive officer Dr. Joth Singh told the Trinidad Guardian newspaper.

But he said preliminary tests had shown avian flu had not killed the  birds.

“That was not the cause and there is speculation that they may have been  poisoned, that they were poisoned by an animal or carcass that they ate. We are  trying to eliminate the causes and we have not found any chemical spills or seen  any anywhere,” he said.

A member of the environmental activist group, Papa Bois Conservation, said  the birds showed signs of poisoning with foam leaking out of their beaks and  their talons curling up.

Stephen Broadbridge said the deaths follow the apparent release of poison  into the Marianne River in Blanchiseusse, south east of here last week, killing  a significant number of fishes.

Late last month, a number of dogs on the outskirts of the capital were found  poisoned.

“This is criminal. If someone is found to be responsible, that person should  face legal consequences, because the fact is that if the birds have been  poisoned, then that poison can be introduced into our eco-system and end up  getting back to humans.

“We are part of the food chain. And when you poison birds, they can fall  anywhere, including the ocean, and be eaten by fish that we consume,” Broadbridge told reporters, adding that the apparent killing of the birds was  also “terribly cruel” as most of the animals would have suffered for long  periods before dying.

The dead birds were found in Chaguaramas and according to a statement issued  by the Chaguaramas Development Authority (CDA) investigations are being carried  out to determine the cause.

“Following the sightings, the  Veterinary Public Health Unit of the  Ministry of Health, the Poultry Surveillance Unit of the Ministry of Food  Production, Environmental Management Authority (EMA) and Forestry Division were  all alerted and samples of the carcasses have been taken for testing. We will  advise later of the test results,” it said.

The dead birds are being bagged and insulated in large metal bins

Thousands of Livestock Killed by Severe Winter Weather in Northern Ireland & Wales (Apr 5)

Thousands of farm animals perished after a blizzard engulfed Northern Ireland last month. The animals, mostly sheep, were entombed when snowdrifts up to 20 feet high blanketed many high-lying fields.

Michelle O’Neill said 3,130 sheep have been collected to date, and had some words of reassurance for farmers in doubt about who will and will not be eligible for help.

Mr Campbell, 45 and from near Banbridge, said: “It is soul-destroying looking at the amount of dead animals and the losses which the farmer has.

“Basically you’re just seeing a pile of dead carcasses — predominantly sheep — and bags upon bags of lambs that farmers have gathered up.

“I’m at it about seven or eight years now,” he said.

“I’ve never seen it as bad – just the volume of animals that’s lying dead, and probably a whole lot more we haven’t got yet.

Across North Wales, thousands of sheep are feared to have died under snowdrifts up to 15ft in the worst lambing disaster since the snow crises of 1947 and 1963.

Llanfairfechan farmer Emyr Williams said it would be impossible to deal with the devastation in seven days and some animals could be buried under snow for weeks.

British butterfly species facing extinction after wettest summer

 

 

 Britain's butterflies suffered catastrophically in 2012, which saw the wettest summer on record for England. No fewer than 52 of the 56 resident British species suffered declines in the relentless rain and cold, some to such an extent that they now face extinction in parts of the country, according to the annual survey of the UK Butterfly Monitoring Scheme.

The weather created disastrous conditions for species such as fritillaries as they struggled to find food, shelter and mating opportunities; butterflies fell to a record low, and 13 species suffered their worst year on record.

The critically endangered high brown fritillary fell by 46 per cent, the vulnerable marsh fritillary was down 71 per cent and the endangered heath fritillary saw its population plummet by 50 per cent.

The black hairstreak, one of the UK's rarest species, saw its population fall by 98 per cent.

Starving Sea Lion Pups Overwhelm Southern California Rescue Organizations

By SUE MANNING 03/29/13 06:05 PM ET EDT AP

LOS ANGELES — Hundreds of starving sea lion pups are washing up on beaches from San Diego to Santa Barbara, overwhelming rescue centers and leaving scientists

It's gotten so bad in the past two weeks that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration declared an "unusual mortality event." That will allow more scientists to join the search for the cause, Melin said.

Live sea lion strandings are nearly three times higher than the historical average, said Jim Milbury of the National Marine Fisheries Service, part of NOAA.

Between Jan. 1 and March 24, 948 pups were rescued, Milbury said. The bulk of those were in Los Angeles County, which had 395, followed by San Diego, Orange, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, he said. Last year, only about 100 pups needed saving during the same period.

At the Pacific Marine Mammal Care Center in Laguna Beach, there were 139 animals being cared for Friday. Of those, 131 were sea lion pups, said spokeswoman Melissa Sciacca. She said the center has treated more than 220 sea lion pups so far this year, while the center treated 118 in all of 2012.

Southern California rescue facilities have become so crowded they have had to start sending pups to Northern California, said Jeff Boehm, executive director at The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, which was caring for 30 starving pups.

There has been no sign of adult female mortality, Melin said. But the pups' situation on the beaches is so bad, rescuers have had to leave the worst of them in an effort to save the strongest ones, she said.

Scientists expect the death toll to rise in April when weaning is supposed to take place. They also expect it to move further north, Melin said.

Madagascar hit by 'severe' plague of locusts

Swarm of locusts in Madagascar The locust plague is described as the worst to hit Madagascar since the 1950s

A severe plague of locusts has infested about half of Madagascar, threatening crops and raising concerns about food shortages, a UN agency says.

The UN's Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) said billions of the plant-devouring insects could cause hunger for 60% of the population.

About $22m (£14.5m) was urgently needed to fight the plague in a country where many people are poor, the FAO added.

It was the worst plague to hit the island since the 1950s, the FAO said.

FAO locust control expert Annie Monard told BBC Focus on Africa the plague posed a major threat to the Indian Ocean island.

'Generation of locusts'

"The last one was in the 1950s and it had a duration of 17 years so if nothing is done it can last for five to 10 years, depending on the conditions," she said.

Annie Monard Locust control expert

"Currently, about half the country is infested by hoppers and flying swarms - each swarm made up of billions of plant-devouring insects," the FAO said in a statement.

"FAO estimates that about two-thirds of the island country will be affected by the locust plague by September 2013 if no action is taken."

It said it needed donors to give more than $22m in emergency funding by June so that a full-scale spraying campaign could be launched to fight the plague.

The plague threatened pasture for livestock and rice crops - the main staple in Madagascar, the FAO said.

"Nearly 60% of the island's more than 22m people could be threatened by a significant worsening of hunger in a country that already had extremely high rates of food insecurity and malnutrition," it added.

An estimated 85% of people in Madagascar, which has a population of more than 22 million, live on less than a dollar a day.

The Locust Control Centre in Madagascar had treated 30,000 hectares of farmland since last October, but a cyclone in February made the situation worse, the FAO said.

The cyclone not only damaged crops but created "optimal conditions for one more generation of locusts to breed", it added.

China pulls 1,000 dead ducks from Sichuan river

Dead pigs along Songjiang, Shanghai - picture released 10/3/13 The news comes amid concerns over the 16,000 dead pigs found in Shanghai's Huangpu river

Around 1,000 dead ducks have been pulled from a river in southwest China, local officials say.

Residents found the dead ducks in Nanhe river in Pengshan county, Sichuan province, and alerted the environmental department, they said.

Local residents and livestock were not at risk as the river was not used for drinking water, officials added.

The news comes as the toll of dead pigs pulled from Shanghai's Huangpu river passed 16,000.

Speaking in an interview with China National Radio on Sunday, Liang Weidong, a deputy director in Pengshan's publicity department, said that the authorities were first made aware of the ducks on Tuesday.

Officials discovered over 50 woven bags which contained the carcasses of around 1,000 ducks in the river.

They were unable to determine the cause of death as some of the ducks were already decomposed, Mr Liang said, adding that the bodies had been disinfected and buried.

An initial investigation suggested that the duck corpses had originated from upstream and were not dumped by local Pengshan farmers, he said.

'Thick soup'

The news has prompted concern and criticism from some users on weibo, China's version of Twitter, with many expressing incredulity at the government's assurance that the water is safe.

"Dead pigs, dead ducks... this soup is getting thicker and thicker," wrote one person with the username Baby Lucky.

"The dead pigs haven't even disappeared yet, and now the dead ducks emerge - does this society enjoy being competitive?" wrote netizen sugarandsweet.

"The dead ducks in Pengshan river present us with a very practical problem, and show how society's bottom line is getting lower and lower," weibo user If So said.

The news came as Shanghai's municipal government confirmed that over 16,000 pigs corpses had been pulled from Huangpu river, which supplies drinking water to Shanghai.

The work of fishing out the dead pigs in the river was "basically finished", the government said in a statement released on Sunday.

Workers have been pulling dead pigs from Huangpu river for the past two weeks, sparking concern amongst residents and on China's microblogs. It is still not clear where the dead pigs came from.
