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

Another tipping point breached: Salmon have disappeared in Scotland: Not a single salmon caught during the entire season.

It used to be the best salmon fishing in the world
But now Global warming is being blamed for Scotland's worst salmon season in living memory.
Some beats on famous rivers like the Spey and the Nith recorded not a single salmon caught during the entire season.
Just two salmon were caught on the River Fyne in Argyll this year, where once more than 700 were caught each season.
The number of fish caught by anglers has been so low that some estates have stopped selling permits for once-popular beats because there is no fish to catch.
Tourism has been hit, sales of salmon tackle have slumped and ghillies have lost their jobs.
Experts believe rising temperatures blamed on global warming have badly hit the salmon's feeding grounds with related changes in current patterns also affecting their migration.
Roger Brook, director of the Argyll Fisheries Trust, said: "Salmon are in decline everywhere but they're declining more on the west coast of Scotland and they're declining more the further down the west coast you go.
"It's dreadful now in Argyll.
It's a crisis in Argyll.
I don't know whether it's too late now to put it right."
This year's cold spring and the summer heatwave created the "perfect storm" for poor fishing conditions.
But experts believe the steep decline in numbers since the 1960s is deep-rooted and warn the future is bleak.
Survival rates for salmon at sea have fallen as low as 3 per cent with global warming and ocean fishing fleets among the likely causes.
Professor Ken Whelan, a leading salmon specialist investigating the downturn, said: "Absolutely there's a crisis in salmon fishing.
What we have now is a situation where you're looking at very modest numbers of fish coming back and you really can't afford to lose any from any kind of man-made effects."
Andrew Flitcroft, the editor of Trout and Salmon magazine, said: "This has been undoubtedly the worst season I've witnessed in my lifetime."

In January 2017, the collapse of Alaska's salmon fishing caught the headlines.
The federal government issued a disaster declaration for Alaska's pink salmon fishery and several other salmon and crab fisheries along the West Coast. 
Gov. Bill Walker requested the declaration after the 2016 pink salmon harvests in Kodiak, Prince William Sound, Chignik and lower Cook Inlet came in far below forecast, the Alaska Journal of Commerce reported.
The estimated value of Kodiak's catch in 2016 was about $2 million, compared to a five-year average of $14.6 million.
The disaster declaration granted by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker on Wednesday gives Kodiak and the other Alaska fisheries the ability to seek disaster relief assistance from Congress because of the unexpected large decreases in salmon returns.

More dead dolphins, sick birds found in Collier while officials await test results

Published 5:00 p.m. ET Nov. 29, 2018

Two more dead dolphins were found Thursday in Collier County, bringing the total to 41 found in Lee and Collier counties since Nov. 21.  

On Tuesday, 15 dolphins washed up dead in Collier and Lee counties, said Blair Mase, a marine mammal stranding coordinator for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. 

The next day, two more dead dolphins were found in Collier County, Mase said.  

The dolphins found Thursday were seen by a crew from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission conducting an aerial survey of Southwest Florida beaches.  

"Their main goal for the survey was to find out if there were any more dolphins they just weren't seeing or picking up,” Mase said.  

The theory is the dolphins were healthy before ingesting fish poisoned by red tide from an offshore bloom, then died because of the exposure, Mase said.   

The FWC crew was unable to fly offshore Thursday to look for the suspected red tide bloom because of bad weather, said Allison Garrett, a communications and media relations specialist with NOAA.  

The FWC will request another flight and hopes to fly offshore Friday, Garrett said.  

In addition to dolphins, Mase said, NOAA has seen other species wash up dead across Southwest Florida over the past week, mostly in Collier County. That included sea turtles, sea birds and a few large fish, such as grouper and tarpon.  

Since July, higher-than-normal numbers of bottlenose dolphins have washed ashore dead in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota, Manatee, Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, according to NOAA.     

NOAA declared the spate of deaths an "unusual mortality event."     

Including the animals found Thursday, 119 dead dolphins have been seen across the seven counties that are part of the "unusual mortality event" since it began in July, according to NOAA.

Full or partial necropsies on several dolphins since July found a toxin indicating red tide is to blame.      

NOAA cannot confirm the latest deaths of dolphins in Lee and Collier counties were caused by the red tide toxin until testing on the dead dolphins is completed, Mase said.    

Officials are pulling samples from the dolphins as they are found and sending them to a lab to test for the toxin associated with red tide, Mase said. She expects the test results in a few weeks.  

The FWC also will test dead turtles for the toxin associated with red tide, Mase said.  

More: Red tide suspected as dead dolphins wash up on Collier, Lee beaches

Officials with the Conservancy of Southwest Florida's von Arx Wildlife Hospital still were  waiting for test results Thursday to determine what has been killing shorebirds in southern Collier County.  

Two more sick birds were admitted to the wildlife hospital from Residents Beach on Marco Island as of 4 p.m. Thursday, said Catherine Bergerson, director of communications and marketing for the conservancy.   

More sick birds were expected to be dropped off later in the day at the wildlife hospital, Bergerson said.  

Officials with the conservancy are unsure when they will get results from tests done on some of the dead birds to determine what killed them, Bergerson said.

Joanna Fitzgerald, wildlife hospital director, said something other than red tide could be affecting the birds.  

Although fewer sick birds were brought to the hospital Wednesday and Thursday than on other days in the past three weeks, that isn’t necessarily a good sign, Bergerson said.   

Fewer birds were out on the beaches in the past two days, which could be because many already have gotten sick and died or because they migrated from the Marco Island area, Bergerson said.  

The wildlife hospital admitted 24 sandwich terns and common terns Nov. 11-17, and 92 percent of those birds died, Fitzgerald said.

In addition, some royal terns and laughing gulls have been admitted to the wildlife hospital in the past week, Fitzgerald said.     

When those bird species are suffering because of red tide poisoning, Fitzgerald said, they do not normally die as quickly as have the birds admitted to the hospital recently.

Thousands of carp die in mysterious circumstances in Iraq

SADDAT AL-HINDIYAH (IRAQ) (AFP) -
Iraqi fish farmers south of Baghdad have been left reeling after finding thousands of dead carp mysteriously floating in their cages or washed up on the banks of the Euphrates.
Piles of the dead silvery fish, along with a few car tyres and plastic bags, could be seen on Friday lying under a massive concrete bridge.
They covered the surface of deeper water nearby, providing rich pickings for birds circling above.

And in the fish farms of Saddat al-Hindiyah in Babylon province, about 80 kilometres (50 miles) south of Baghdad, the lifeless carp floated together in small clumps.
Farmer Hussein Faraj frantically scooped dead fish out of his enclosure in a red plastic crate, fearing they were poisoned.
"Some are saying it's because of a sickness, others say it's because of chemicals," said Faraj, his thick black hair standing on end and his eyebrows furrowed in worry.
"We're waiting for a solution from the government or a test of the water -- we're scared the water will poison us in the coming days, too."
Major water pollution has already kicked up a stink in Iraq once this year, as around 100,000 people were hospitalised this summer in the southern city of Basra.
There, too, farmers were shocked to see their fish suddenly turn up dead in the water, or washed up on muddy shores, during the Summer crisis.
In Saddat al-Hindiyah on Friday, distressed farmers were pulling fish from their enclosures in nets, and opening up gills to check for clues to the shocking mass deaths

'All of them are dead' -
"This sickness is a mystery. It's uncontrollable," said Jaafar Yassin, head of the town's agricultural unit.
"Around 90 percent of fish in the farms died," he told AFP.
The losses have left farmers angry.
"I own 28 cages and farm 50,000 fish in them. I estimate that I lost $80,000 (70,000 euros) as a result of the sickness," said farmer Hussein al-Husseini.
Gesturing wildly and sounding panicked, his colleague Anas Nuhad counted his own losses.
"I farmed 70,000 fish in these ponds ?- all of them are dead," said Nuhad, a layer of lifeless carp covering a fish pond behind him.
"Where am I supposed to get fish from now? Everyone eats fish. So many people, so many families are living off this industry," he said.
Iraq produces 29,000 tonnes of fish each year, according to 2016 statistics gathered by the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organisation.
The country's national delicacy is masgoof -- flame-grilled carp seasoned with sauces made from onions, spices and tomato.
Iraq's health ministry said Friday it had taken samples from the water and dead fish in Babylon province, but tests had yet to be completed.
"There have not been any illnesses caused by eating fish so far," said spokesman Seif al-Badr.
"Our health monitoring teams are also carefully following fishmongers in the local market", he said, adding that anyone found selling the affected fish will be held accountable.
Dr. Yahya Merhi, head of the Babylon Veterinarian Hospital, said the results could be known in two days.
But in the meantime, the fishy phenomenon seems to be spreading.
Around 80 kilometres (50 miles) south of Babylon, more dead carp have floated to the surface of fish ponds on the Euphrates.
The region's agricultural chief Safaa al-Junaibi blamed the mass deaths on overcrowding in fish farms, which he told AFP facilitated the rapid spread of bacterial disease.
"In a single fish farm, the sickness killed 56,000 fish -- around 120 tonnes. The losses racked up to 300 million Iraqi dinars ($2.5 million, 2.2 million euros)," he said.

Dogs ill after beach walks

Wednesday 31 October 2018

Warnings have been issued about an unnamed danger on South Ayrshire beaches after vets practices reported a number of dogs becoming ill after visiting the sands. Vets started seeing dogs brought in with paralysis-type symptoms in mid-October. All dogs have since recovered and no further cases have been reported. A council spokesman said: “We’re aware that a number of dogs have become unwell on the beach and although there is no obvious reason for this we’ve been liaising with SEPA to identify any potential issues. “As a precaution, signage has been put in place to ask dog owners to keep their pets on the lead.”

Local vets have seen cases of dogs becoming ill after being walked on beaches from Girvan to Prestwick and one theory is that it could be toxic waste being washed ashore from tankers dumping waste into the water off the South Ayrshire coast.
One South Ayrshire resident asked; “What are they dumping into the water? We found loads of dead fish, dead birds and dead crabs – nothing is really living.
“Something is happening for sure.”
Environment agency SEPA said it was aware of a “number of dogs becoming unwell” but said there were “no known reports of pollution or incidents which might have impacted the beach area”.

Hundreds of dead fish litter Naples’ Moorings Bay; cause of death unknown

October 8, 2018

Hundreds of rotting fish carcasses washed into Moorings Bay on Sunday and were still there Monday afternoon, but no one knows what killed them — or when they’ll go away.
Moorings Bay is one of several areas that experienced fish kills over the weekend, Naples’ Natural Resources Manager Stephanie Molloy said

“We’ve had dead fish wash up on a few beaches and then the tides and currents push them into the canals,” she said.
Previously: What’s turning Southwest Florida’s shores brown? It’s not red tide
More: Murky waters at Naples Pier keep swimmers away
A bloom of a diatom, called Cylindrotheca, is one possible cause of the dead fish, Molloy said.
“It’s complex, and we don’t know the exact cause,” she said. “It could be related to the diatom.”
Cylindrotheca first appeared last week, turning the water a deep murky brown. Although the bloom is nontoxic, it can still cause fish kills, according to a city of Naples news release.

“Cylindrotheca can cause low dissolved oxygen waters, which cause fish die off,” the release states. “This diatom is also mucilage-producing, causing clogging of fish gills, (which is) a direct cause of fish die off.”
Latest: Red tide is gone from shores of SWFL, but for how long?
More: When will SW Florida waters return to normal? Soon, scientists hope
The fish kills could also be the result of red tide, Molloy said. Although recent water samples indicate the toxic red tide algae has all but vanished from Naples shores, patches of the bloom further out in the Gulf could still have an impact

“It’s possible that red tide out in the Gulf is still causing dead fish to wash up,” she said. “Or it could be a combination (of the two blooms), so the red tide sickens the fish and then the diatom kills it. We don’t know.”

Collier County has deployed its contractor, CrowderGulf, for interior canal cleanups throughout the county, including Naples. Molloy said she doesn’t know whether the contractor has scheduled a cleanup for Moorings Bay.

More: Third species of algae, fueled by decomposing fish, is found blooming in Southwest Florida waters
Meanwhile, the city is sampling Moorings Bay for low dissolved oxygen levels and the presence of Cylindrotheca, according to the news release. The city will send the samples to the county and to the state’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute for testing.
Molloy said algal blooms similar to Cylindrotheca have happened in the past; last year a type of blue-green algae called Trichodesmium turned the water brown, and another type of algae also turned the water murky in 2012.
As for the current bloom, Hurricane Michael — which is predicted to make landfall along the northeastern Florida coast on Wednesday — may help dissipate it, Malloy said.
“The storm may break it up a little bit and the colder weather may also help it die off,” Malloy said.
“It’s been a really rough summer for beachgoers,” she added.

Several thousand dead fish, snails found floating in Bengaluru’s Madiwala Lake
Residents blame the rising pollution in Madiwala lake and sewage entering the water body from the nearby storm water drains.

Friday, October 05, 2018 - 10:56

Morning walkers and residents of BTM Layout were in for a shock on Thursday morning, when they saw thousands of dead snails and fish floating on the banks of the Madiwala Lake, one of the largest water bodies in Bengaluru. According to reports, residents have pointed to the growing pollution in the water body, while Forest Department officials who manage the lake, call it a natural phenomenon.
According to a report in The Times of India, residents say that they have never witnessed such an incident before and that sewage entering the lake from a nearby storm water drain could have caused the death of the fishes, snails.
The Madiwala Lake, which is spread over more than 150 acres, is also one of the oldest lakes in Bengaluru. In 2016, city-based bird watchers had found that several species of migratory birds from Siberia in central Asia and the Arctic had stopped coming to the lake, which was their preferred winter home.
Regarding the concerns on sewage water entering the storm water drain, officials told The Deccan Chronicle, "Though sewage has entered the lake, we cannot conclude anything now. When rainwater enters the lake, some creatures survive and some do not; this is a natural phenomenon."

Incidentally, in the last week of September, around one thousand fish were found dead in Kalkere Lake near Horimavu. Again, residents had expressed their concerns over sewage flow and poor maintenance of the lake by the BBMP officials.
In a similar instance in March 2016, thousands of dead fish had washed up along the banks of Ulsoor Lake. Vaman Acharya, former chairman of the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board, had then told TNM that untreated sewage flowing into the lake was choking marine life. Untreated sewage from the localities between MG Road and Indiranagar was flowing into primary drains and then into Ulsoor lake, he said.

Hundreds of birds found dead in Warsaw
05.10.2018 13:36
Some 200 jackdaws have been found dead in the Warsaw district of Mokotów since late on Thursday, according to police

A woman reported that birds were falling out of the trees between apartment blocks, police said.
They found 130 dead birds on Thursday.
Officers also caught 20 live birds which were handed over to Warsaw Zoo, which has a rehabilitation centre for wild birds.
After receiving reports on Friday, police found 70 more dead birds.
Poisoning has not been ruled out as a cause of death and police urge pet owners to remain careful.
Five jackdaws will be autopsied and samples will be sent off for tox-screens to determine what killed the birds, said Dawid Fabjański from the Animal Rescue foundation which is supporting the police.
The foundation has offered a PLN 500 reward for anyone who comes forward with information about the suspected poisoning.
The jackdaw, a member of the crow family, is a protected species in Poland, but it is listed as a Least Concern species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Dozens of birds fall out of the sky in mysterious 'mortality event'

Officials investigating what caused birds, believed to be starlings, to plunge to the ground

A number of dead birds, which bystanders say fell from the sky, lie on the pavement.

The Canadian Wildlife Service is investigating a "mortality event" in which dozens of birds literally fell from the sky on a road near Tsawwassen, B.C.

People were shocked to witness the birds, believed to be starlings, plunge to the ground near the BC Ferries terminal on Sept. 14.

It is unclear whether they were dead before hitting the ground.

'It was horrible'

Kevin Beech says the scene was something reminiscent of an Alfred Hitchcock movie.

"The poor little guys were in blood pools and stuff. It was horrible," he said.

He took a picture and posted it on Facebook, where it was shared hundreds of times. 

Those who witnessed the event told Beech it was like a mass suicide as the birds, believed to be starlings, crashed to the ground in a big group.

Shawn Phillips was on his way to pick up someone from the ferry terminal when he says he saw "swarms of birds doing aerial events."

He said one of the groups did a loop and then dived straight into the ground. 

"Man it was unexpected. It was unreal to see. It was spooky to see," Phillips said.

He pulled over but said, "there were no survivors".

Post-mortem examination

The "mortality event" is being investigated by the Canadian Wildlife Service and the Delta Wildlife Shelter.

The carcasses of the birds were collected and sent to a laboratory for a post-mortem examination to determine a probable cause of death, according to Environment Canada migratory bird biologist Laurie Wilson.

"We won't know the cause of death until the birds have been examined," she said.

Rob Hope from the OWL Orphaned Wildlife rehabilitation centre in Delta, B.C., speculates that the deaths were related to migration and hunger and that stormy weather may have stressed the birds.

"Most of the flocking birds at this time of the year ... will not only be stressed but malnourished and that can cause their bodies to shut down and just drop from the sky."

Common phenomenon in Indian village

There have been reports of mass bird deaths elsewhere in the world.

In India, a small village called Jatinga is famous for the phenomenon. For a few months in the fall, hundreds of birds fly at high speed and crash into a mountain ridge at night, causing bird carcasses to be scattered across the valley below. Locals believe evil spirits are responsible.
