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

Essex coast pilot whale died from starvation

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-essex-30157922

The first long-finned pilot whale to beach in the southern North Sea for 22 years died from starvation, post-mortem tests have found.

The whale, among a 40-strong pod seen along the East Anglian coast, washed up near Goldhanger, Essex, on Thursday afternoon.

Marine experts successfully encouraged most of the whales from the shallow Blackwater Estuary into deeper waters.

But one - a 2.18m female - was found dead.

Rob Deaville, cetacean strandings programme manager at ZSL, said the whale was found on a beach with "partial rigor mortis".

"[This] indicates that the whale is likely to have died that morning, possibly around the time that the pod of whales was observed up the Blackwater River near Osea Island," he said.

"The whale had stranded alive before dying on the beach."

Tests showed the whale was in "very poor nutritional condition" with "no significant evidence of recent feeding".

He said: "The most likely cause of stranding and death at this stage is starvation, although we are waiting for the results from follow-up tests, including several to determine whether the animal had an underlying infection."

Rescue teams began their operation after the pod was spotted on Tuesday

Some 12,000 cetacean strandings have been recorded in the UK since 1990.

Mr Deaville said: "In that time, only one long-finned pilot whale has been recorded stranded on the UK coast in the southern North Sea - a single individual in Norfolk in 1992 - indicating how unusual this event is."

The pod of whales has been off the Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex coastlines in recent weeks.

Tons of fish, shellfish and birds found dead in lake in Drava National Park, Hungary

alert-now.gif

The incident is just 20-30 with the first discovery of the body count, but now there are more than four tons of fish, shellfish and protected birds died, and estimates there are a lot of dead bodies sink to the bottom.

Environmental Protection Agency, Water Authority, food chain safety bureau, Disaster Management Authority and the Danube – Drava National Park staff several times in the past week extracted from the sample questions lake, although the analysis is still in progress, But experts believe that the reason for this incident but the rain many times in the past few weeks has led to waterlogging and Delaware Canal and how waves (Dombó-csatorna) Multi-level rise occurs, make certain toxic substances into the ponds being.

Mitigation and relief work currently being carried out by volunteers who work together with, Water Authority and Kaposvar’s “rope associations” volunteers who are trying to save, and Fishing Association has also requested the support of local government. It is understood that the Delaware River and what is yet to come in waves canals contaminated fish died.

The incident did not cause casualties, but more than four tons of animal carcasses classified as dangerous goods to be transported by the Fishing Association is responsible to pay the prescribed places, it will be no small expense. More serious than the loss of material is a direct result of this incident in the past 30 years Fishing Association’s efforts in vain, and the local tourist attraction will be greatly reduced.

The pollution caused by a large number of carp, carp, perch, pike and bream death, many of them for up to one meter, weighing 30-40 kg of fish.

The local government said the size of the problem has more than a small fishing associations and local governments within its power range, so they issued a rescue request to the State Government.

Hundreds of dead fish found floating in a river in Thessaly, Greece

Fish Kill Alert

Common phenomenon tends to be longer for Penaeus image with dead fish.

In recent days hundreds of small fish, lying dead in the river, at the height of the Annunciation, creating a spectacle at least repulsive to passersby.

And the ugly scene of the image that comes to complement the black waters and natural smell diffused “richly” in the surrounding area.

The embarrassing spectacle saw who happened to spend the last hours of this point, observing a huge grid of fish, seeing them one from afar looked like seaweed.

Fish float to the surface and some of them have been out of their heads still, showing the desperate efforts, to breathe, to be saved.

Undoubtedly this is an ecological disaster, which occurred due to the general pollution of the river.

The appearance of dead fish along the bed of the Peneus, the National Road at the height of Tempe, is frequent in recent years and sample contamination of river waters in conjunction with the gain reduction.

However despite the controls at times of competent departments whenever identified dead fish in the river, solution has been given and the problem seems to be perpetuated.

Thousands of dead fish found ‘mysteriously’ floating in a lake in London, England

www.standard.co.uk/incoming/article9751643.ece/alternates/w620/Harr..." alt="" width="620" height="415"/>
An investigation is underway after thousands of dead fish were found floating in an east London park lake.

The grim discovery was made by volunteers in Harrow Lodge Park, Havering, over the weekend.

Havering Council has launched an environmental health investigation to find out what caused the mass death.      

Councillor Melvin Wallace said: “We’re still trying to determine the exact cause of the incident.

“We believe it’s either due to an extensive amount of un-oxygenated water that entered the lake due to the heavy rainfall over the weekend, or a possible pollutant.

www.standard.co.uk/incoming/article9751656.ece/alternates/w460/harr..." alt="" width="460" height="306"/>

“The Environment Agency has tested the water and we’re currently waiting for the results.”

Council staff have since removed the fish from the lake.

It is not the first time animals have died in the lake. Earlier this year several birds contaminated with avian botulism were found dead in the park while 20 ducks were killed by visitors feeding them mouldy bread.

Large amounts of dead and ‘sick’ fish being found in the Baltic sea off coast of Sweden, Finland and Germany

El «inexplicable» problema de los peces muertos y enfermos del mar Báltico

There is an “inexplicable” problem in the Baltic Sea, has warned Oceana . Its waters are registering high mortality of fish. The international marine conservation organization that has made ​​three expeditions in the Baltic Sea and the Kattegat between 2011 and 2013 using remote underwater vehicles and divers, has requested that new marine protected areas are designated in the area and measures are carried out suitable management.

“Compared with expeditions developed in other districts of the globe, we have found a particularly high amount of dead fish or behaving abnormally, having poor conditions or look sick. We do not know the reason and also difficult to identify the specific causes, as many factors may be responsible “, explains the NGO. “Natural causes of death can not be ruled out as an infection or a particular disease Baltic due to its hydrography. It could also result emprobecimiento environmental status of the Baltic Sea, or simply because the ratio of decomposition in the water is lower because the marine life that inhabits them is lower than in other areas “continue. Therefore, “we think it investigated” Zanjan.

In 2013, the Swedish Government commissioned the evaluation of their coastal waters to its marine agency to take samples and determine the causes of the appearance of dead fish along its coastline. There were no conclusive results, and were cited as possible causes pollution and lack of complementary food. Other research conducted by Denmark also pointed to oxygen depletion.

In Germany have seen many dead fish on its shores “but have not sought answers” and also in Finland, pointing from Oceana.

Masses of fish wash up dead along 5km of beach in Jambeli, Ecuador

Peces muertos hallados en 5 kilómetros de playa

Hundreds of dead fish, plus the blue-footed boobies ATDE last Monday was found in about five kilometers of beach on the island Jambelí. Ministry of Environment staff came to this site and not statements were issued regarding the causes of this fact.

The variety of fish is called chuhueco found and used for the production of fishmeal. “We believe that industrial fishing boat took a shoal of fish and threw the sea,” said Jorge Luis Vaca, president of the Vestry of Jambelí.

Mariana Zambrano, owner of a tourist cabins, said tourists were surprised to observe that amount of fish on the beach. “I got up and watched the dead fish are already three times this year,” he said.

Dwellers fish collected in bags to bury them in a garbage dump. The stench was intense even in areas where there are restaurants and rest areas for tourists.

“We reported this incident to the authorities for a study to be done, but technicians say it is impossible to collect samples because species already have more than 48 hours and are decaying,” said Cruz Amalfi, naval officer.

The ECU-911 system Machala reported that it would be “waste fishing” of bolicheros boats (industrial fishing) within 5 nautical miles solely for artisanal fisheries.

Artisanal fishermen reported seeing these fish from the afternoon of Monday in the coastal belts of Jambelí and Low High. In addition boobies were also found dead on that beach.

Similar cases occurred in 2012, 2013 and this year is the third. Residents believe that variations in temperature and the onset of aguajes would impact these events to occur.

Delegates MAE, the area of ​​Environment of the Prefecture of El Oro, Undersecretariat of Fisheries and the Port Bolivar took samples of water and dead fish.

The NC Division of Marine Fisheries is investigating after dozens of dead sharks were found washed ashore on a popular beach strand in Brunswick County on Sunday morning.

Michael Boswell, a local resident, said he was walking on the beach when he spotted about 50 dead sharks on the sand near Southeast 64th Street in Oak Island.

The unidentified sharks range in size from approximately 1′-5′.

Boswell said he reported the discovery to police in Oak Island. Since the initial report, the sharks have been picked up and removed from the beach strand.

However, since the sharks were found below the tide line, this issue is under the jurisdiction of the NC Division of Marine Fisheries.

The exact cause of death for the sharks is still undetermined. According to Patricia Smith, a public information officer with that agency, crews are on their way to Oak Island to investigate the matter.

Oak Island Mayor Betty Wallace said it is illegal to dump any species of dead fish on the public beach strand. The only permitted forms of fishing on the beach are fishing for consumption or catch and release.

Even though this matter falls under the jurisdiction of the NC Division of Marine Fisheries, Wallace said she plans to ask town staff to look into the issue from their end.

“I plan to contact our town manager to review the situation,” said Wallace. “We should ask the public works department to keep a watch on this to make sure it doesn’t become a public health issue. We will be contacting the proper authorities to see what can or should be done.”

Large number of dead birds found on Pismo Beach in California, America

If you make a trip to Pismo Beach you may find more than just sand and seaweed on your walk.

Locals and tourists have been noticing a lot of dead sea birds lining the coast, and the Department of Fish and Wildlife warn they could be a hazard to your pets and children.

“I can take the dogs out to a spot were there are not as many dogs out or people. Or dead birds,” said beachgoer Laura Best.

Best and her daughter, Annabelle, went to Pismo Beach with their dogs on Thursday for a relaxing afternoon. Instead, they were surrounded by dead birds.

“I leave my dogs in the stroller until we get to a spot were I don’t see any vultures or dead birds,” said Best. “I just don’t want them eating them and carrying them around, and with bringing my little girl here, I am trying to keep them safe.”

The Carson family found the smell and sight of rotting birds to take away from their beach day experience.

“I mean there is hardly any trash so why should there be carcasses?” asked Anthony Carson. “They are not the cleanest creatures out there and just a dead rotting carcass floating around is unpleasant and the health risk is out there.”

To find out why all the dead birds are on the beach, KSBY went to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Turns out, it was news to them.

“We will collect some of the species and do a field necropsy and see if there is anything obvious,” said Warden Ryan Hanson. “If it’s blunt force trauma that is killing these birds then we might lean towards a boat hitting them or if they are intact then we will do some more research and figure out what is going on.”

While they figure out what exactly is killing all the birds they advise beachgoers to stay away.

“It’s a little less enjoyable because I have to constantly keep my eye on whatever she is picking up,” said Best. “I mean, she is not just picking up seaweed and crabs anymore, it might be a dead body part, and that’s kinda gross.”

At this point it is only speculation, but Hanson says it can be anything from fish bait attracting the birds to shore, the drought, or even ships hitting a flock of birds.

KSBY will continue to follow up with the Department of Fish and Wildlife and report on its investigation.

An endless procession of dead fish. Since yesterday morning in the channel Usciana, that takes away the water from the marshes of Fucecchio to merge into the Arno to cataracts of Montecalvoli or in Scolmatore through Usciana New cutting the hill of Montecchio, were seen hundreds of dead carp, catfish and other species living in the canal and in the marsh. « To 10 – Enzo tells Erotica, secretary of the PRI of Santa Maria a Monte and formerly deputy in – I went by car over the bridge sull’Usciana in Ponticelli and noticed dead fish slide towards the mouth. I tried to contact the Arpat, but no one responded, being Sunday offices are closed and also from Florence got no answer. I also tried to contact the Municipal Police of Santa Maria a Monte, but there was no one in command » .

IN THE AFTERNOON, after a survey along the banks of the canal in the area of ​​the cut back of the stadium Ponticelli, the same Erotica alerted 112 of the police that the authorities intervene to take note of the situation. At that point it was warned the emergency number of Arpat. Meanwhile, the number of dead fish in the Montecalvoli and then, further down, in Arno, increased visibly. Even from the boat Andrea da Pontedera were reported at the mouth of the channel. The mayor of Castelfranco, Gabriele Toti, who learned of the die-off of fish from The Nation, said « tomorrow (this morning, Ed) will ask for information ARPAT » . The why of dead fish in Usciana not clear, although it is not the first time that happens. Some years ago the Arpat did know after making the analysis of water and on carcasses of fish, it was lack of oxygen in the channel because of the drought. If it happened again this time we’ll know sopo analyzes although drought there can speak.

YESTERDAY AFTERNOON to 15 . 30 dead fish were noted only in the stretch between Castelfranco and Ponticelli and then Montecalvoli and the floodgates of Usciana. Not from the bridge sull’Usciana area via Lungomonte in Castelfranco and even before the Cerri Holy Cross Bridge or a Cappiano. That it was of a spill or abnormal from the bridge of Castelfranco from the one that crosses the canal from provincial halls in Montefalcone? Even in this case will be the analysis of Arpat to determine. The fact is that the plague has caused no little alarm throughout the area.

Gardeners corner discovered the “massacre”, yesterday morning. Hundreds of dead fish floating on the surface. Also a foul odor emanating from the river. Already yesterday, Sunday, the first signs of asphyxia were visible in the arm of the Petit-Cher, along the lake of Bergeonnerie in Tours.

There are all kinds of fish: carp, pike (some are 40 cm), roach, bream, studs … Even large eels dying on shoals. Only cats fish are still alive, usually wedged in the bottom, they are now on the surface in search of oxygen.
On site, gardeners take all the same speech, like Jacques, who has already found the phenomenon two years ago: “The level decreased by 20 centimeters, the fish have more oxygen. It is shameful. Do you even lift
Why such a situation? A City Tours, explains: “This happens every year during periods of unemployment Cher. The drop in the water level, combined with the lack of rain and eutrophication of the environment, causes a lack of oxygen for the fish. “Putting unemployed allows for maintenance works on the Cher.
Faced with this excess mortality, “the city’s sanitation department has daily to remove dead fish,” is said.
If this drop in water level reveals many trash, it also shows the fish wealth of the middle who lives there.

Humpback whale found dead on Nantucket Beach, MA

https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2014/11/25/humpback-whale-found-d...

A 25-foot humpback whale was found dead on a Nantucket beach Massachusetts early Tuesday morning.

The whale was found on Miacomet Beach, said Maggie Mooney-Seus, spokeswoman for the Greater Atlantic Regional office of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It had has no visible wounds, Mooney-Seus said. She speculated it could have died from disease or been hit by a boat.

Mooney-Seus said with a nor’easter expected to hit the region Wednesday, the whale might have to stay put for a while.

“They’re not anticipating being able to get in and move it at this point” because of the approaching storm, she said. It could also be a while until the carcass is removed because NOAA does not have staff who cover Nantucket and because marine officials’ focus is currently on the hundreds of sea turtles that have been washing up along the Cape with hypothermia.

“Right now, I guess we’re just monitoring the situation,” Mooney-Seus said.

Mooney-Seus said she did not know if a necropsy would be performed to determine the cause of death.

Mooney-Seus said people should stay away from the whale and keep their pets away, too.

The whale was found around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, Environmental Police spokeswoman Amy Mahler said in an e-mail.

Large-scale die-off of small seabird along Sonoma  Coast,  California

http://www.pressdemocrat.com/news/3145997-181/large-scale-die-off-o...

Scientists up and down the West Coast are monitoring what appears to be a large-scale die-off of young Cassin’s auklets, small seabirds whose breeding grounds include a colony in the Farallon Islands west of San Francisco.

Emaciated, white-bellied birds have been washing ashore in Sonoma County and along a broad swath of California coastline since early November after a period of ocean warming in the Farallones region and disappearance of the tiny krill that provide their main source of food, researchers say.

Scientists are still collecting data, but the largest concentration of dead birds appears to be in northern Oregon, according to monitors in the Pacific Northwest. Birds have been washing up in Washington, as well.

Scientists say anyone who finds a dead bird should leave it alone so that monitors surveying the beaches can collect accurate records on the die-off.

Just what’s behind the phenomenon is far from clear, those involved in the research say.

One factor may in fact be the species’ recent breeding success, which means a particularly large number of inexperienced fledglings were introduced last summer to the harsh challenges of life at sea, they said.

But there’s concern, at least locally, about the drastic shift in ocean temperature and feeding conditions — from those that facilitated several very productive breeding seasons to those that prompted nesting pairs in the Farallones to abandon their second round of eggs in July — and the potential for linkage to climate change.

Jaime Jahncke, director of California Current at Point Blue Conservation Sciences, which has monitored the Cassin’s auklets in the Farallon National Wildlife Refuge for more than four decades, said mean sea surface temperatures recorded in July and August were the second-highest in 45 years, and rose substantially in September.

But “you can have ocean warming for different reasons,” he said.

An anomalous warming in 2005 and 2006 — though it was winter — resulted in a large die-off of birds, as well as a season in which the birds did not come to the Farallones to breed, Jahncke said. There was also a high mortality event in 1997 and ’98...

......In early November, beach monitors and others began spotting dying and, in most cases, dead Cassin’s auklets, both on the shoreline and in the water.

Members of the Gulf of the Farallones Marine Sanctuary Beach Watch team recently saw more than 100 at Salmon Creek Beach, said program manager Jan Roletto, sanctuary research coordinator. Scientists say thousands, at least, have died, though the longevity of adult Cassin’s auklets, generally, means there should not be a huge impact on the overall population.

In California, the dead and dying birds have been concentrated in the Point Reyes/Sonoma Coast area, south to San Luis Obispo, said Laird Henkel, supervisor of the Marine Wildlife Veterinary Care & Research Center, Office of Spill Prevention and Response for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Stranded whales die on Rototai beach, New Zealand

http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/63470850/stranded-whales-die-on-rot...

In what became a Golden Bay community event, hundreds of people turned up at Rototai beach to see and touch three dead sperm whales that had become stranded.

The whales, which ranged in length from 14 to 17 metres long were located about one kilometre out on tidal flats from the beach carpark.

Local iwi gathered to bless the three whales, which were towed by tug boat to Farewell Spit last night, once the tide was high enough to move them.

Department of Conservation biodiversity programme manager Hans Stoffregen said DOC had received a phone call from Rototai residents saying there were whales milling about at sea.

"This morning we got a call from residents saying they were stranded."

Golden Bay kaumatua John Ward-Holmes said iwi would later harvest the teeth and jawbone, which were regarded as "taonga". He said local iwi Ngati Tama, Te Ati Awa and Ngati Rarua were kaitiaki of the teeth and jawbone, and that iwi were working in partnership with DOC on the whale stranding.

While smaller pilot whales strand in Golden Bay every year, sperm whales, which are the largest of the toothed whales, aren't such a common sight in Golden Bay.

Stoffregen said the last sperm whale to be washed up in Golden Bay was "Tamati", who stranded at Puponga in 2007.

Rototai resident Gaya Brabant said she and her family noticed the whales offshore last night and called DOC. Initially she thought they were playing. She said her son saw six whales further out to sea.

She wondered if a large amount of blue bottles had played any role in attracting the whales to come into the shallow waters.
