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

Rare Seahorse Caught On Video In Waters Off Long Beach (2/24/16)

...Diver Roger Hanson says he couldn’t believe what he found twice Sunday just off the Long Beach coast: a rare Pacific seahorse calmly gliding above the ocean floor in just a few feet of water.

...Hanson had last spotted the spiny curvaceous creature last month...

...Usually they’re found among the coral reefs as far south as Peru and hardly ever found north of San Diego.

A biblical beetle invasion has started along the beaches of Mar de Ajó and San Bernardo in Argentina.

The strange phenomenon surprised locals and tourists, but the cause of this insect plague remains unexplained.

Is climate warming responsible for this mysterious apparition? This strange phenomenon is baffling!

...“We are currently experiencing the longest global coral bleaching event ever observed,” said Mark Eakin, NOAA’s Coral Reef Watch coordinator. “We may be looking at a 2- to 2½-year-long event. Some areas have already seen bleaching two years in a row.”

According to Eakin, the length of the event means corals in some parts of the world have no time to recover before they are hit by more bleaching. The current global bleaching event is hammering some reefs repeatedly.

Scientists first observed the current global coral bleaching event beginning in mid-2014, when bleaching began in the western Pacific Ocean. In October 2015, as the current El Niño was still strengthening, NOAA scientists declared the third global bleaching event on record was underway.

...Coral bleaching happens when corals are stressed by conditions such as high water temperatures.Bleaching occurs when the corals expel the algae that live in their tissues. Without the algae, corals lose a significant source of food and are more vulnerable to disease. In a severe bleaching event, large swaths of reef-building corals die. This causes reefs to erode, destroying fish habitat and exposing previously protected shorelines to the destructive force of ocean waves.

...The first widespread mass bleaching occurred during the 1982-83 El Niño. The first global bleaching event occurred in 1998 during a strong El Niño that was followed by a very strong La Niña, which brings warmer waters to places like Palau and Micronesia in the Pacific. A second global bleaching event occurred in 2010, during a less powerful El Niño. ...

Hundreds of sea lions wash up dead in Chile

Updated 6:58 PM ET, Fri February 26, 2016

Most of the dead sea lions that are washing up along northern Chile are newborn pups. The deaths are part of a widespread die-off observed elsewhere on South America's Pacific coastline. Part of the problem: El Niño.

Most of the dead sea lions that are washing up along northern Chile are newborn pups. The deaths are part of a widespread die-off observed elsewhere on South America's Pacific coastline. Part of the problem: El Niño.

(CNN)Marine researchers have found more than 100 dead sea lions -- most of them newborns -- washed ashore along a relatively small peninsula in northern Chile over the past three months, part of a more widespread die-off being observed elsewhere on South America's Pacific coast.

"This is happening along the entire coast of northern Chile and we're getting reports that it's also happening in Peru, our neighbor to the north," researcher Carlos Guerra-Correa told CNN. "We could be talking about hundreds of sea lions washing up ashore dead in the entire region."

The South American sea lion (Otaria flavescens) is the species affected by the die-off observed in the area of the Mejillones Peninsula in Antofagasta province, where the researchers routinely conduct marine studies.

Guerra-Correa said he is concerned that the vast majority of the dead sea mammals are newborns -- though some juveniles and adults have been found.

"Some of the dead animals we have found still had their umbilical cord attached," Guerra-Correa said. "We found one with a placenta."

What's killing the sea lions?

Guerra-Correa says a series of factors affecting the sea lions' food sources are to blame for the deaths.

Mystery illness strikes California sea lions 01:50

First, there's El Niño. The recurring climate pattern across the tropical Pacific brings warm water to the coasts of Chile. This warm water does not have the same nutrients of phytoplankton that colder water has. Phytoplankton is important because it feeds sardines and anchovies that sea lions thrive on. In other words, sea lions seem to be starving to death because the food chain has been disrupted.

"Starvation is primarily affecting female sea lions in the latter stages of pregnancy. That's why their babies are dying at birth or being miscarried," said Guerra-Correa, who is director of the Regional Center for Environmental Studies and Education at Antofagasta University.

Also, he says, over-fishing is aggravating the problem because it dramatically reduces feeding options for sea lions and other species.

Whale skeletons found in southern Chile

Teams with Chile's National Fishing Service are investigating what the Chilean government calls "massive deaths of cetaceans." Investigators have found dead whales in Penas Gulf in the Aysen Region located in southern Chile. The National Fishing Service reports the finding of 70 skeletons. They also found the bodies of two other animals, possibly whales, which died recently. Officials also blame these deaths in a disruption in the food chain.

Guerra-Correa the news is not so bad for South American fur seals (Arctocephalus australis), which seem to be surviving the disruption of the food chain.

"Unlike the other affected species, these sea lions are able to swim much deeper and find fish that are not present in shallow waters," he said.

Both the fur seal and sea lion can be found along the continent's southern Pacific and Atlantic coasts.

Mass Animal Deaths for 2016

Below is a list of worldwide mass animal deaths for 2016, with pages also for mass die offs from the previous 5 years. There are animals dying all over the world today in huge numbers, due to the polluted state of the sea and air. Millions of Fish and massive numbers of whales and dolphins are washing ashore dead. Birds are falling dead out of the sky, and millions of poultry are dying from avian flu. The animals of the land like cattle are also dying in large numbers from disease. Although animals and fish have been dying all throughout history, we have not seen the massive consistant numbers that we are seeing today. Please remember! This is just one of the MANY signs of the last days.

In many of these events people from all walks of life are saying that they have "never seen anything like this before".

Hosea 4:1-3 ...'Hear the word of the Lord, ye children of Israel: for the Lord hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood. Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.'

Dozens of dead birds found along highway in Youngstown, Ohio

Sun, 21 Feb 2016 14:33 UTC

Dead birds

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is investigating the death of dozens of birds found Saturday along Interstate 680 in Youngstown.

Passers-by spotted the carcasses of large black birds along the north bound lane near Midlothian Boulevard.

ODNR Wildlife Officer Jesse Janosik told 21 News that he would take photographs of the dead birds and collect samples for testing.

Janosik says he expects it will take a couple of days before it is determined what caused the animals to die.

According to the Division of Wildlife website, ODNR actively follows up on reports of any wildlife diseases in Ohio and monitors the health of wildlife populations to ensure their long-term conservation.

Associated Press 1:58 p.m. EST February 22, 2016

Federal officials are investigating the deaths of 13 bald eagles.

The Baltimore Sun reports investigators were called to a farm in Federalsburg, Maryland on Saturday afternoon after a man discovered some of the birds.

Maryland Natural Resources Police spokeswoman Candy Thomson said the man was looking for shed deer antlers when he noticed four dead bald eagles. Thomson said officers went on to search the grounds and discovered an additional nine dead eagles.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is now investigating the situation.

Officials have not said if the eagles were killed intentionally. Additional information has not been provided.

Vanuatu fish stocks down with soaring temperatures

http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/pacific-news/296800/vanuatu-...

Updated at 7:51 pm on 17 February 2016

As Vanuatu struggles to cope with minimal food crops in the wake of last year's Cyclone Pam, the soaring temperatures are now impacting fish stocks.

'Fish kills' occur when the water temperature does not decrease enough during high tide, and the fish swimming in the shallows can't survive.

Thousands of fish have been washed ashore in Fiji and Vanuatu in the last few days.

Rocky Kaku is with the Vanuatu Fisheries Department and said people on the island of Efate were worried about their livelihoods.

"They are quite worried about the fish, which some of them benefit for their livelihood, they use the fish for food and so since we are in the hot season they are quite worried about what they will eat and what they will make money out of in the coming months or future."

Mr Kaku said the government had allowed fish aggregation devices to be set up for local boat owners as well as fishermen who did not have boats, so to avoid fishing on coral reefs, which had also been damaged.

Ochre sea stars have suffered 95 percent die-off in SLO County (1/15/16)

The mass die-off of sea stars along the West Coast continues unabated, including in San Luis Obispo County, where an estimated 95 percent of ochre sea stars have died.

...From Alaska to Mexico, from 70 to 99 percent of the sea stars have died. Areas on the East Coast have also been affected.

The disease was first detected in 2013 and spread rapidly. Sea stars are often called starfish.

“In some places, they are completely gone,” Raimondi said. “It’s bad, and it’s been bad for the past several years.”

Researchers with Raimondi’s lab monitor eight tide pool locations in San Luis Obispo County twice a year, including Shell Beach, Diablo Canyon and Montaña de Oro State Park. About 15 species of sea stars are affected by the disease.

...The good news is the fact that researchers are finding a lot of baby sea stars in tide pools. Animals like sea stars often react to being under stress by reproducing as much as possible, he said.

ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for November 16, 2013 http://www.zetatalk.com/ning/16no2013.htm

It is not pollution, but the sloshing tides caused by the Earth wobble that are killing the Starfish on N American coasts. Puzzled scientists should examine water samples from the killing zone with samples where the Starfish are healthy. Starfish are not found universally in all waters around the world. Why do some ecosystems cause them to flourish, and others not? Therein lies the answer.

Am I completely nuts or apocalyptic animal mass kills are increasing dramatically around the world?

Yes, giant mass die-offs, disease outbreaks and other stressors are on the rise, killing billions… But we don’t react! Are they so mysterious?

Below, find a collection of animal mass die-offs from around the world for 2015.
Animal are dying in huge numbers due to pollution of sea and air:
  • Millions of fish and massive numbers of whales and dolphins are washing ashore dead.
  • Birds are falling dead from the sky
  • Poultry are dying from avian flu. and cattles from other sometimes unknown disease.
The increase of mass die-off is unprecedent right now and will probably continue raising at an alarming rate if we don’t start to take more care about our Earth!
