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

Drought hits Ethiopia, claims 2million animals

http://www.vanguardngr.com/2017/08/drought-hits-ethiopia-claims-2m-...

The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) has said that two million animals have been lost to a “devastating” drought in Ethiopia.

The UN agriculture agency said that the drought had devastated herders’ livelihoods as it exhausted pastures and water sources.

It said the current food and nutrition crisis was significantly aggravated by the severe blow to pastoral livelihoods.

“For livestock-dependent families, the animals can literally mean the difference between life and death – especially for children, pregnant and nursing mothers, for whom milk is a crucial source of nutrition.

“With up to two million animals lost so far, FAO is focusing on providing emergency livestock support to the most vulnerable pastoralist communities through animal vaccination and treatment, supplementary feed and water, rehabilitating water points, and supporting fodder and feed production”.

FAO stressed that supporting the herders to get back on their feet and prevent further livestock losses was crucial in the Horn of Africa country, where hunger had been on the rise.

“The drought has led to a significant number of animals dying or falling ill, particularly in the southern and south-eastern regions of the country, as other areas recover from previous seasons’ El Niño-induced drought,” the UN agency warned.

It also said that drought-hit pastoralists were facing reduced milk production, rising malnutrition, and had limited income-earning capacity and severely constrained access to food.

Abdoul Bah, FAO Deputy Representative in Ethiopia, said “Some 8.5 million people – one in 12 people – are now suffering from hunger; of these, 3.3 million people live in Somali Region.

“It is crucial to provide this support between now and October – when rains are due – to begin the recovery process and prevent further losses of animals. If we don’t act now, hunger and malnutrition will only get worse among pastoral communities.”

According to Bah, by providing supplementary feed and water for livestock, while simultaneously supporting fodder production, FAO seeks to protect core breeding animals and enable drought-hit families to rebuild their livelihoods.

In addition to FAO-supported destocking and cash-for-work programmes to provide cash for families, he said animal health campaigns would be reinforced to protect animals, particularly before the rain sets in – when they are at their weakest and more susceptible to parasites or infectious diseases.

Bah said FAO urgently required $20 million between August and December to come to the aid of Ethiopia’s farmers and herders.

“FAO has already assisted almost 500,000 drought-hit people in 2017 through a mix of livestock feed provision, de-stocking and animal health interventions,” he said. .

The support was courtesy of the Ethiopia Humanitarian Fund, Switzerland, Spain and Sweden through FAO’s Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities, the UN Central Emergency Response Fund, as well as FAO’s own Early Warning Early Action fund and Technical Cooperation Programme.

Shocked seaside tourists found thousands of dead fish washed up on a Dover beach

Posted: August 06, 2017


Beach-goers looking to enjoy the sunny weather over the weekend were presented with a shocking sight – as thousands of fish seemingly beached themselves in Dover.

Surprised onlookers snapped pictures and videos as a broad section of the beach was coloured white with all the stranded fish.

The fish, whitebait, are believed to have beached themselves to avoid predators – but end up being pushed up on the shore by a rising tide, then are left stranded once the water level drops again.

Sea lions wash ashore in California amid return of toxic blooms

August 11, 2017 10:07am

Scores of convulsing sea lions are washing up on Central California beaches after eating fish poisoned by a plume of toxic algae that could spread north toward the Bay Area and cause widespread problems, marine biologists said.

Since June, veterinarians at the Marine Mammal Center in the Marin Headlands have treated 89 animals — all but seven of them sea lions — plucked mostly off beaches near San Luis Obispo, where a large algal bloom formed in the ocean.

Of the 82 sea lions brought to the center, 31 have died, and virtually all of them had seizures caused by domoic acid, the dreaded neurotoxin that closed down the Dungeness crab season two years ago and killed off thousands of marine species over the past two decades, said Shawn Johnson, the center’s director of veterinary science.

“We’ve rescued 64 animals just in July,” said Johnson, who coordinates the rehabilitation of injured marine mammals rescued from San Luis Obispo to the Oregon border. “They’ve been coming in huge waves, as many as 10 a day.”

The coming crab season, which typically kicks off in November, is not currently being threatened, but state health officials are monitoring the situation to see if algal blooms begin cropping up farther north as ocean temperatures climb in the late summer and fall.

The stakes are high for the environment and for the fishing industry. More than 21 million pounds of Dungeness worth $66.7 million were pulled in during the 2016-17 season, the best haul in four years and almost double what was taken a year earlier when much of the California coast was blanketed in algae, prompting fishing restrictions and health warnings.

The latest bloom, known as a red tide, appears to be on a northward trajectory. Starting in April, dozens of sick and dying sea lions, dolphins and fur seals were found on beaches in the Los Angeles and San Diego areas.

Over the past two months, most of the poisoned sea lions, fur seals and sea otters have been washing up on beaches around Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area in San Luis Obispo County, Johnson said. Many of the rescued sea lions were lactating females that had been foraging near the Channel Islands for food to feed their pups.

“To have them so concentrated in such a short time period is unusual. That tells us there is a really toxic bloom of algae in that area,” Johnson said. “As the water temperatures increase over the summer, we see this bloom migrating farther north, so it’s possible we could see it reach the Monterey Bay area in the late summer and fall.”

Outbreaks like this one have been sickening increasing numbers of marine mammals since the first toxic bloom was documented on the West Coast in 1998, when 400 sea lions washed ashore in Monterey Bay.

The culprit was a microscopic, single-celled species known as pseudo-nitzschia, which produces domoic acid. The algae grows thicker and faster in warmer, nutrient rich seawater, and the toxin it produces accumulates in shellfish, mussels, anchovies, sardines and herring, the primary food of sea lions.

When it is sufficiently dense, it attacks the hippocampus, the brain’s memory center, and can cause memory loss, tremors, convulsions and death. The toxin, which accumulates in the bloodstream, can also sicken people who eat fish, crab or mollusks.

The Marine Mammal Center has picked up an average of about 70 poisoned marine mammals each year since 2009, officials said. Scientists now consider the toxin to be one of the biggest year-round biological threats along the California coast. But the problem isn’t isolated to California, as marine biologists say algal blooms are growing all over the world as oceans warm.

The death toll hit its peak on the West Coast in 2009, 2014 and 2015, when unusual atmospheric conditions heated up coastal waters and created havoc in the ecosystem. The 2015 bloom, the biggest recorded, spread all the way to northern Washington. More than 2,500 animals were stranded on California beaches that year — about 10 times the average rate.

The crisis, which also triggered die-offs of Northern California birds and fish, forced regulators to keep the Dungeness crab season closed until March, when the season is usually winding down. While this year’s conditions are not nearly as dire, the uptick in strandings last month caused alarm among marine biologists.

“This is a little unusual,” said Clarissa Anderson, executive director of the Southern California Coastal Ocean Observing System and a researcher at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. “It’s a bigger stranding event than we’ve seen in that area for a long time.”

The California Department of Public Health warned consumers not to eat shellfish caught in the northern Channel Islands after detecting dangerous levels of domoic acid in May.

Despite the increase in toxic algae, only four people are known to have have died following exposure to domoic acid. They were among 250 people who became ill in 1987 after eating contaminated mussels from Canada’s Prince Edward Island.

12th North Atlantic right whale found dead off coast of Martha’s Vineyard: NOAA

A 12th North Atlantic right whale has been found dead, this time in Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries.

In an interview with Global News, NOAA Fisheries Greater Atlantic Region spokesperson Jennifer Goebel said the whale was found Tuesday floating off of Edgartown. She said the Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank Commission sent photos to NOAA Fisheries which confirmed it was a North Atlantic right whale.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare, located on Cape Cod, Mass., is performing a necropsy Wednesday to determine what caused the death of another endangered right whale. Goebel added that it would not take place on a public beach in the area, but would not say where due to privacy reasons.

“We’ll continue to do necropsies to find out as much as we can about any whales that died because any bit of information is helpful, if there’s something else going on that we’re not aware of,” Goebel said.

Through the photos provided by the commission, Goebel said they were able to confirm it was a right whale.

As of last Thursday, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans said it would bring all resources necessary to protect the right whales after 10 had died in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

Earlier this spring, Goebel said there was also a right whale that died after being stranded in Cape Cod. In an email, she said final results of the necropsy report have not been received but the initial analysis was the death was due to the whale being struck by a vessel.

DFO Minister Dominic LeBlanc said last week it’s believed 80 to 100 right whales are currently in the gulf and the DFO says in total, there are approximately only 525 right whales in the world.

Various precautions have also been taken as a result of the deaths, including asking mariners to slow their ships to 10 knots when passing through the areas and limiting the amount of rope they have on the water. LeBlanc said collisions with ships and fishing gear entanglements are major threats to the whales.

During one entanglement last month, however, a veteran fisherman from Campobello, N.B. was killed while freeing a whale.

This incident prompted Canada and the United States to temporarily suspend efforts to rescue entangled whales.

Fish kill brings quick concern, quicker response

A look at fish surfacing during the recent fish kill in and around Orange Beach

Boaters around Perdido Pass and other areas of Orange Beach have noticed an unsettling phenomenon in the last few days- hundreds upon hundreds of dead fish at the surface of the water.

It’s known as a fish kill, and it’s an unfortunate thing to witness. While not entirely uncommon, the last fish kill in our area was almost exactly two years ago.

According to scientists at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, this particular fish kill looks to have been caused by a low oxygen event rather than a red tide- a name given to a large concentration of algae known to kill sea life.

“High nutrient, freshwater runoff contributing to normal phytoplankton blooms, along with relatively low wind and slack tides, will often lead to low oxygen events, especially in the summertime when water temperatures are high,” the Sea Lab representative said.

With so many fish afloat in the water and washing ashore, the city jumped into action to begin cleanup efforts.

"The City of Orange Beach began to experience a fish kill last weekend and immediately responded by activating our standing debris removal contractor Crowder Gulf,” said Ken Grimes Jr., City Administrator for Orange Beach. “Contracted employees working alongside city crews from our Coastal Resources Division and Public Works responsible for shoreline cleanup, the effort collected and disposed of a significant share of dead fish floating and trapped along shorelines specifically in the Cotton Bayou and Perdido Pass area.”

Heavy rains recently without significant winds to churn the water have contributed to the low oxygen levels in the water.

“We always take these environmental issues seriously and work to respond quickly to mitigate the negative impacts for our businesses, residents and guests,” Grimes said. “The last major fish kill was exactly two years ago during the same week of the year. It's an odd phenomenon but we appreciate everyone's patience."

With an outpouring of concern on Facebook and other social media channels, the problem quickly became the talk of the island. Orange Beach officials responded just as fast.

“It's great to have an elected body that realizes when such an unpredictable event occurs, they are fast to support staff recommendations on covering unbudgeted expenses related to a response like this,” Grimes said. “Led by Mayor Tony Kennon, we always focus on the best and most effective response to serve the greatest good. Our environment here on the Alabama Gulf Coast means everything."

Vietnam farmers devastated as fish die en mass for third time in 12 months

Mass fish deaths occurred in the locality twice August and October last year

  • August 11,2017, 13:32 GMT+7

Nearly 90 metric tons of farm-raised fish in the southern province of Ba Ria- Vung Tau have been killed once again, leaving local residents with the heavy burden of loss and debt.

Tran Van Cuong, director of the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, convened a meeting with local fish farmers on Thursday afternoon to discuss the incident, the third mass fish deaths to occur in the last 12 months.

Fish raised on 23 farms along the Cha Va River in Long Son Commune, Vung Tau City, began dying en mass at the beginning of this week.  By Wednesday night, nearly 250,000 fish weighing a combined 90 metric tons had been killed.

According to Nguyen Cong Bien, one of the affected residents, the water used by the farms had become unusually opaque of over the last few days and began emitting a chemical smell.

 “We tried pumping oxygen into the water but we didn’t have any success,” Bien continued.

The farmer demanded that local authorities put mechanisms in place to save their fish and support the affected households.

Speaking at the meeting held to discuss the issue, Cuong stated that the mass fish deaths could have been caused by heavy downpours, which reduced the oxygen content in the water.

Test results showed that the nitrogen and sulfur content in the water was much higher than the normal limits.

Meanwhile, fish samples taken from the affected farms revealed the presence of viruses causing ulcers and hemorrhage, the official elaborated.

Inspectors also discovered that a barrel business had been washing products along the Cha Va River.  The barrel company has since ceased operations while authorities examine the substances contained in the barrels.

Cuong suggested that farmers harvest their existing fish and refrain from raising new fish while the situation is evaluated.

Dredging may be carried out along the river section as a long-term solution, he added.

Similar mass fish deaths happened along the Cha Va River in Long Son Commune in August and October last year.

Competent authorities later attributed the incidents to lack of oxygen and sudden change in water content brought about prolonged downpours.

Dead Seabirds Washing Ashore on N.E. Beaches

Walking on the beach at the north end of Block Island last month, Matt Schenck stumbled upon two dead and decomposing seabirds, which the avid birdwatcher identified as great shearwaters. While gulls of various species are commonly found dead on local beaches, shearwaters are an extreme rarity.

A dead great shearwater recently found on a Block Island beach. (Matt Schenck)

A dead great shearwater recently found on a Block Island beach.

Except this year.

Hundreds of great shearwaters have turned up dead on beaches on Long Island and southern New England this summer, and no one seems to know why. In addition to the birds on Block Island, birders and biologists have reported dead shearwaters on Rhode Island beaches in Tiverton and Charlestown.Shearwaters spend most of their lives far out to sea, where they soar just above the waves as they forage on small fish and other marine creatures near the surface of the water. Four species of shearwater — great, sooty, Cory’s and Manx — are typically seen in Rhode Island waters, though they seldom travel within sight of land. Most breed on remote islands in the South Atlantic.

According to Josh Beuth, a biologist for the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, shearwaters have been observed in large numbers from the shore this year, including from Jamestown, Newport and Point Judith. They have also been seen regularly from the Block Island ferry.

“There has been an abundance of sand eels in our local waters, which are a forage fish for shearwaters,” Beuth said. “As a result of them being closer to shore than usual, it would be more likely that they’d wash up on shore if they died.”

While prey may be abundant, some biologists, including Linda Welch, a U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service biologist who studies great shearwaters off Cape Cod, have noted that many of the dead birds are juveniles that have been thin or emaciated, suggesting that the birds have starved.

The dead birds began to show up on beaches in late June, which is about when they should have arrived along the East Coast after their long migration from their breeding grounds in the South Atlantic. By then, they were likely stressed and tired and hungry, which may have made them susceptible to any number of potential sources of mortality.

Wildlife pathologist Joe Okoniewski examined some of the dead shearwaters found on Long Island beaches, and he told The New York Times that the birds were not only thin but anemic. “The big mystery is: Why are they thin? On the surface, it looks like you know what happened — they starved,” he said. “But when you ask why, it becomes much more of a mystery.”

It is especially mysterious if prey is seemingly abundant, as it has been this summer in Rhode Island waters.

Robert Kenney, an oceanographer at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography, speculates that toxic algae from red tides may be playing a role in the bird deaths. He said a number of northern gannets, another species of seabird, have been found dead on Cape Cod beaches this summer. The only difference, he said, is that they are “in good condition, except for being dead.”

He noted that toxic algae may have also contributed to the deaths of some of the numerous whales that have been found dead along the East Coast and in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence this year.

Among those trying to find an answer is Julie Ellis, director of the Seabird Ecological Assessment Network at the Tufts University Veterinary Medical Center, which uses volunteers throughout the Northeast to regularly walk beaches to collect dead birds for study. She is reaching out to a number of animal diagnosticians throughout the region in hopes that together they can come up with a consensus of what is causing the shearwater deaths. She hopes they will have an answer next month.

Dozens of dead birds pop up in Buckeye neighborhood

BUCKEYE, AZ - Dozens of birds have turned up dead in one Buckeye neighborhood, and community members are puzzled. 

It's advised you don't touch dead animals with your bare hands. 

Most of the time, you'll be asked to dispose of the animal yourself if you want to get rid of a dead bird you found. 

But, in cases like the one in Buckeye, you can call the USDA. They have a department dedicated to this. Contact them by calling 1-866-4USDAWS.

Watch: Thousands of dead fish discovered at city 'lake of death'

July 26 2017

Footage shows mass fish deaths at Salford Park, Nechells where council previously said water is 'safe'

Thousands of dead fish have mysteriously floated to the surface of a city lake popular with anglers - weeks after the authority said the water was ‘NOT hazardous’.

Bream, perch, tench, eels, roach and carp have been found dead at Salford Park, in the shadow of Spaghetti Junction.

And the remains of swans and birds have also been uncovered close to the lake in Nechells.

Fisherman Krisstian Smith made the grim discovery when he visited the park on Wednesday, weeks after he first raised the alarm of worrying algae in the water.

Earlier this month, the Birmingham Mail told how the angler contacted the city council at the end of June to report a number of dead fish in the ‘murky’ lake.

He also said he had witnessed seagulls ‘falling from the sky’ after drinking the water.

Krisstian, who has fished at the lake regularly over the past four years, said it was normally ‘crystal clear’ and filled with fish.

But at the time, Birmingham City Council moved to reassure residents the lake was safe and ‘not hazardous’.

Steve Hollingworth, Birmingham City Council’s Service Director for open space and wellbeing, said: “Although the water is cloudy, it is a naturally occurring algae bloom and is not hazardous.

“We are satisfied that it is safe.”

Footage captured this week showed the scale of the problem, with anglers fearing around 90 per-cent of the lake’s fish stock has now been lost.

Krisstian said: “I knew something was wrong at the start of June when there was a difference in the clarity of the water - which is usually crystal clear.

“My first thought was that it was blue green algae, which can be harmful to humans and animals.

“I reported it to the council who said it was safe.

“But this week, I was heartbroken to see thousands of dead fish and the few that remain are gasping for air.

“The lake is usually full of bream, perch, tench, eels and carp. There is even a catfish in there.

“I would say around 90 per-cent of those are now dead.

"The pool is very popular with anglers but I doubt match fishermen will want to go there now.

“On Tuesday, the council came down to remove the dead fish and aerate the lake but it’s too little too late.”

The council had not responded to the claims as the Birmingham Mail went to press.
