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

Murre Die-off around Kachemak Bay in Thousands

Die-offs of Common Murres have been taking place across Alaska since Summer and the latest report is from Kachemak Bay, according to biologists with the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge in Homer. 

Wildlife Biologist, Leslie Slater, says there have been two waves of mortality.

“This die-off started to be noticed, around mid-July in certain parts of the state. And so it continued at some level, a fairly high, noticeable level for a couple weeks and then it seemed to diminish and then there seemed to be resurgence again of the number of carcasses that we were seeing on beaches, and that happened in mid-November or so," Said Slater.

Wildlife Biologist Leslie Slater holds one of about a dozen dead Common Murres found along a short stretch of beach at the Spit in Homer Tuesday, December 22.

There have been die-offs reported of the penguin-like sea birds in Cold Bay in July and in Kodiak in November. Slater says they’ve also had reports from Seward, Sitka and Prince William Sound. In November starving and dead Murres turned up around the Mat-su and Anchorage areas, farther inland than usual.

“It seems that then they would either be disoriented, which could be the result of ingesting a toxin or they could be very desperate in searching for food and just kept traveling up the inlet,” said Slater.

Seabird die-offs have been recorded all along the west coast of the U.S. in Washington, Oregon and California this year. Slater estimates that a large number of Murres have died around Kachemak bay.

“Based on the duration of the time that we’ve had carcasses being reported to us, I would say, it’s into the thousands, certainly, throughout Kachemak Bay,” said Slater.

The dead Murres are being counted by citizen scientists all along the Spit and along the beach up to Anchor Point. 

“They’ve been doing this for several years and so there’s been a baseline established of what we would consider being a normal winter and so far, it’s been at least six times the normal background amount that’s been observed,” said Slater.

Slater says the citizen scientists mark the Murres with color-coded zip ties around a wing or foot and if you see a bird with a zip tie she says you should not disturb it because it’s part of a study.

And anecdotal reports of Dead Murres and other birds are coming in from across the Bay. They’ve also had reports of some dead tufted puffins, horned puffins and an ancient murrelet. She says the birds, along with Murres, feed on small fish or dive to get invertebrates during summer and dive for squid, crustaceans and krill during winter.

Slater says Murre carcasses were sent to the National Wildlife Health Center in Madison, Wisconsin where bird flu was ruled out. The dead birds seem to have starved, but Slater says there could be other factors.

"There are analysis that are pending. So it could be something that had to do with PSP, like paralytic shelfish poisoning that was ingested at some point, but that is still unkown," said Slater.

Results from those tests should be back in January. That’s also when Biologist, Heather Renner, with the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge will be presenting a paper on the Murre die-off at the Alaska Marine Science Symposium in Anchorage.

Rare sea snakes, thought extinct, found in Australia

CAIRNS, Australia, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- Biologists in Australia assumed both the short-nose sea snake and leaf-scaled sea snake were extinct. ...

The critically endangered species hadn't been seen in at least 15 years. But as they recently recounted in the journal Biological Conservation, scientists located both snakes unexpectedly off the coast of Western Australia.

The rare short-nose sea snake's only known habitat was the water surrounding the Ashmore Reef in the Timor Sea. But the species hadn't been seen there in nearly two decades.

Earlier this year, however, Grant Griffin, an officer with Western Australia Parks and Wildlife, spotted a pair courting near Ningaloo Reef. Griffin snapped a photo of the snakes, and biologists back on the mainland confirmed the sighting. ...

The other species, the leaf-scaled sea snake, is also endemic to Ashmore Reef. But their most recent sighting, the first in years, occurred more than 1,050 miles south in the thick seagrass beds of Shark Bay. There, scientists found a significant population.

"We had thought that this species of sea snake was only found on tropical coral reefs. Finding them in seagrass beds at Shark Bay was a real surprise," said D'Anastasi.

Unfortunately, this unexpected but positive news was paired with bad news. A number of sea snake species are declining along the Ashmore Reef, and researchers aren't sure why. Sea snakes are vulnerable to trawling, a destructive commercial fishing technique, but fishing is off-limits among the marine sanctuaries surrounding the reef.

"The disappearance of sea snakes from Ashmore Reef could not be attributed to trawling and remains unexplained," said co-author Vimoksalehi Lukoschek, also wtih the Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies.

Thousands of dead fish wash up to the surface of a lake near Jakarta following torrential rains in Indonesia as fishermen are left to clear the waters

  • Fishermen have been left struggling in Indonesia after thousands of fish died near the Citra Lake
  • Torrential rains around the area are being blamed for their deaths in waters situated close to Jakarta, Indonesia
  • Lack of oxygen may have caused the massacre and experts are taking samples to determine the cause of death

Fishermen have been left struggling in Indonesia after thousands of fish died near the Citra Lake, leaving scientists and officials baffled by the cause of their dramatic deaths.

Hundreds of tons of dead fish were found floating in waters near Jakarta with torrential rains around the area being blamed for their deaths. The department of fishery have suggested that the heavy rainfall may have caused a sudden rise in the water temperature.

The change in conditions is thought to have been behind the decimation of the fish population in the local water, leaving fishermen and local volunteers forced to clean up the waters in order to ward off further deaths.

A lack of oxygen for the fish may have caused the massacre and experts are taking samples of the dead fish to determine their cause of death.

'In the morning, I found just a few dozen dead fish [floating on the water] but as hours went by, the number grew to hundreds and it created a foul stench,' Bambang, a 47-year-old fisherman at Muara Angke port told the Jakarta Globe.

'It is not unusual that many fish die, like this. But this year, there has been an increase both in the frequency and the volume,' he said.

El Nino washes a SECOND deadly sea snake onto popular California beach which has not seen any for THIRTY YEARS

  • A dead 27-inch-long male yellow bellied sea snake was discovered last week in Huntington Beach, California
  • It's the second time in two months the rare, extremely venomous snake has been found in southern California 
  • A two-foot-long yellow bellied sea snake was found in October slithering onto Silver Strand State Beach in Ventura County 
  • It last appeared in California during the El Niño system in the '80s 
  • Theorized warming ocean currents have allowed snakes to travel farther
  • Experts say yellow-bellied bites can be fatal to humans, but they are rare

For the second time in two months, a rare deadly sea snake has washed ashore at one of southern California's most popular beaches. 

A dead 27-inch-long male yellow bellied sea snake was discovered last week during a coastal cleanup campaign by volunteers for the Surfrider Foundation in Huntington Beach, the Los Angeles Times reported. 

In October, a two-foot-long yellow bellied sea snake was discovered slithering onto Silver Strand State Beach in Ventura County, but it died shortly after being taken to a US Fish and Wildlife Service office nearby. 

The venomous sea serpent, known to scientists as Pelamis platura, was first spotted in 1972 during an El Niño in San Clemente. 

A descendant of Australian tiger snakes, experts believe the arrival of the sea snake is a harbinger of El Niño because the last time it appeared in California was during the weather system in the '80s.

Greg Pauly, herpetological curator at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, said this latest discovery is only the third time the snake has ever been spotted in California. 

'One in a year is incredible. Two in a year is just mind-blowing. I'm just completely shocked,' Pauly told the OC Register

He explained to the Times that he thinks the reptile found in Huntington Beach may have been 'prompted to navigate north of its normal tropical habitat by the spread of abnormally warm ocean temperatures because of a strong El Niño this year.'

'It is incredible and fascinating to have two of these aquatic, highly venomous snakes suddenly show up around here,' he told the newspaper. 

'But this is not an invasion, and no one has ever died from the bite of this animal. 

'Their fangs are tiny and they can barely open their mouths wide enough to bite a person.

'So, unless you pick one up, the biggest safety concern with going to the beach is with driving there and then driving home.'

With a bright yellow underside and a flat, paddle-like tail with black spots, the reptile is the most wide-ranging snake species on Earth. 

It usually is found off the coasts of warm tropical waters such as Asia, Australia, Central America, Mexico and Baja California. 

Experts have theorized that the onset of El Niño has allowed the sea snakes to get to California by riding warm ocean currents across the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

The snake sightings have also been noted on a blog for Heal the Bay, and the organization asked members of the public to avoid handling the snake and instead note the location and take photos.

Tons of dead fish, Marine animals washed ashore in Leyte

Dec 12, 2015

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQSxd67QhhQ

Published December 12, 2015 4:25pm

Tons of different types of fishes and marine animals were washed ashore on Wednesday along the coast of Barangay Bacong, Babatngon, Leyte, a television report said Saturday.

Citing information from the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, a report on "News TV Live" said residents were surprised to see hundreds of dead fish floating near shore during high tide.

Local BFAR officials said some three tons of fish and other aquatic animals have been washed ashore.

The BFAR also said residents had reported that a cargo ship has been docked at nearby oil depot since December 7, and that it is conducting an investigation on what caused the fish mortality.

Big crowd listens to experts from around the country at Lake Erie water forum

Posted: Dec 11, 2015 5:23 PM ESTUpdated: Dec 11, 2015 9:24 PM EST
 
CATAWBA ISLAND (WTOL) -

A forum on how to protect Lake Erie brought more than 100 people to the Lake Erie shore this week, including experts from Green Bay, Wisconsin and the Chesapeake Bay, two areas that have been dealing with water problems of their own.   
 
The Lake Erie Improvement Association hosted the forum to discuss ways to reduce algae on the lake.

Maryland conservation leader Verna Harrison highlighted the Total Maximum Daily Loads, TMDL's, which are mandatory reductions that have been reducing phosphorous and nitrogen runoff into the Chesapeake Bay.
 
Harrison said load limits could do the same for Lake Erie.

“And so it's a sense of, okay, I'm going to this location and it tells me when I get there. And the state can have its own plan for how it gets there,” said Harrison.

Dr. Jeff Reutter of the Ohio State University Sea grant says the algae bloom in Lake Erie in 2015 was the worst algae bloom the lake has ever seen but was only a third as toxic as they thought it would be when considering its size.
 
Since temperatures have dropped, it won't be a problem again until July.

But Dr. Reutter knows the problem has to be solved.

“Using the strategy that was used in Chesapeake Bay, if that would do it, I'll be 100 percent in favor of it. I don't believe that is the only strategy that could be used,” said Dr. Reutter.

One of the other speakers was Greg Baneck, of Wisconsin Outagame. He talked about the algae that has been harming the water in Green Bay and the Little Fox River and said the region has phosphorous problems just like Lake Erie does.

El Niño strikes again: Sixty whales get tangled in fishing gear off Californian coast after unusually warm Pacific puts them on collision course with trawlers 

  • More than 60 whales tangled in fishing gear have been spotted this year
  • Spike in numbers is thought to be due to warming in the Pacific Ocean
  • Authorities have identified the crab fishery as the most urgent concern 

More than 60 whales tangled in fishing gear have been spotted off the coast of California this year as an unusual warming in the Pacific Ocean draws them towards the shore.

The figure is a more than 400 per cent spike over the normal numbers and scientists believe the whales may be on a collision course with fishermen, crabbers and lobstermen.

The situation is so dire that the crab fishery has begun working closely with state and federal agencies and environmental groups to figure out where and how the whales are running into their gear.

The ocean mammals have also become entangled in gill nets and lobster gear, but authorities have identified the crab fishery as the most urgent concern.

'This time of year, the whales would be offshore but with the blob of warm water, they're right off the beach. They're right where the crabs are,' said Jim Anderson, a crabber who's helping to mobilize the state's 562 licensed Dungeness crab fishermen.

'You go talk to a guy who's been fishing for 40 or 50 years and he's never seen anything like it.'

Whales that have rope stuck in their mouths or wrapped tightly around their fins or tail will eventually die if they can't free themselves.

Highly trained volunteer rescue teams are only able to disentangle a small percentage despite tracking devices that allow them to follow the hobbled animals for miles. Many swim away and their fate is never known.

A humpback whale that was partially freed recently off La Jolla, California had line stuck in its mouth, a huge knot of rope six feet behind its tail and 200 additional feet of rope and buoys dragging behind it.

Another rescued nearby had a 70-foot line looped over its tail that was connected to a lobster pot still swinging from the rope's end underwater.

Keith Yip, who volunteers as the leader of a disentanglement team sponsored by SeaWorld, was involved in both rescues.

He's been called out four times in the past six weeks and has logged 10 rescues in the past two years - one-fifth of all the calls he's had in a 30-year career.

'It's another job in and of itself recently,' said Yip, who is the curator of mammals at SeaWorld. 'My weekend days alone just the past couple of weeks I've spent on the water.'

Rather than crack down on the Dungeness crab fishery, which can bring in up to $100 million a season, state and federal agencies decided to tap into the crabbers' collective knowledge to figure out where wayward whales and fishermen are overlapping.

The crab season is delayed this year because of a massive bloom of toxic algae in the Pacific, but crabbers are committed to help when the season does resume later this winter or next year.

At a training session this fall in Half Moon Bay, nearly 100 crabbers already learned how to photograph tangled whales, call them in to a hotline and then 'babysit' them until authorities arrive. A best practices guide has been distributed to all crabbers.

And when crabbing does resume, fishermen will work alongside scientists on their boats to test different densities and strengths of rope and gear configurations, including a new 'sinking rope' that reduces slack in the line that could entrap whales.

Another pilot program will log where crabbers drop their pots on GPS-enabled iPads.

'We've got pots in the water, we've got ropes in the water and we've got whales in the water,' said Anderson. 'What can we do to make this a safe place for everybody?'

Environmental groups are on board, too. The cooperation comes against the backdrop of a two-decade battle between environmentalists and lobster fishermen on the East Coast that hasn't yielded answers but has financially devastated lobstermen, said Geoff Shester, California campaign director for Oceana.

It's a promising start but ultimately might not be enough, said David Anderson, captain of Capt. Dave's Whale Watching and Dolphin Safari in Dana Point, California.

Anderson, who is no relation to the crab fisherman, was among the first to realize there was a serious problem under the water when his tours kept running into distressed whales.

Now, a critical part of his work also involves documenting - and responding to - entangled whales off the Southern California coast.

Anderson, who's certified by federal marine authorities as a volunteer rescuer, believes the hobbled whales here are a symptom of a larger crisis that's telegraphed to the surface with each struggling creature.

'We've had more than 50 entangled whales this year off California, but that's just the tip of the iceberg,' he said. 'Most of the whales we're not seeing - and it's a huge problem.'

337 Dead Whales In Chile Is Worst Case Of Mass Deaths So Far

Posted on December 3, 2015

In the most shocking case of mass animal deaths to date, 337 endangered Sei whales have been found dead in Southern Chile.

According to Chilean news agencies. the whales were discovered by scientists on November 17, but only now has the mass death been reported to the authorities (and leaked to the press). In May, in the same part of the Aysen region, biologist Vreni Haussermann discovered 30 dead Sei whales. Baffled scientists suggested at the time that the deaths might have been caused by a virus, and promised to launch an investigation.

At first, researchers counted 20 carcasses but warned that the number could increase following their investigations. The final count is shocking. After the first deaths in May, Haussermann teamed up with Dr Carolina Simon Gutstein and they pooled their resources together. Using aerial and satellite photography, the scientists have counted 305 carcasses and 32 skeletons in the area between the Gulf of Penas and Puerto Natales.

This is the single biggest mass whale death known to science. Haussermann said it was “an apocalyptic sight.”

 Sei whales can weigh up to 50 tons, and they usually live in deep waters far from coastlines. They feed on krill and other small sea creatures by using a filter system, which makes them vulnerable to plastic pollution, and in particular, microbeads.

Due to the remote area and rough seas on the Southernmost tip of Chile, not to mention the decomposition of many whales, conducting
experiments to determine the exact cause of death isn’t easy. The case was recently reported to Chilean fishing body Servicio Nacional de Pesca, and will be followed up by the Chilean police.

Dear readers: three years ago I wrote about a similar mass animal death involving dozens of dolphins off of Cape Cod. Just a few days later, hundreds of dolphins were then beached off of Peru. The second time, I couldn’t help noting that a Google map with animal death locations matched up with a HAARP Weather technology map – they use frequency. Sometimes mass deaths of water animals coincide with Navy sonar testing – just something more to ponder. -Heather Callaghan, Natural Blaze

Dead fish, birds at Shoalwater as probe into Cockburn Sound deaths continue

December 3, 2015 4:24am

DEAD fish and birds, including a pelican, have been found in Shoalwater, sparking fears problems plaguing the Cockburn Sound are spreading.

A man named Liam posted on Facebook he came across dead blowfish “washed up everywhere and even dead birds, one being a pelican” when walking his dog along Shoalwater on Thursday.

“To my surprise the fish kills have made it as far down as there ... it’s a shame especially with the fisheries telling us that it’s safe to swim and fish. If it’s so safe why are the birds that feed on fish dying as well?” he posted.

Dead fish and birds, including a pelican, have been found in Shoalwater as fears grow that a problem that has killed fish near Cockburn Sound has spread further south. Picture: Liam O'Connell/Facebook

Big numbers of dead fish reportedly washed up at Cockburn Sound on Wednesday, near the Garden Island Causeway and Point Peron boat ramp, after more than 700 pink snapper and blowfish were found dead last month.

Authorities are still trying to work out what killed the fish, but have ruled out disease, with environmental factors most likely to blame.

Fisheries researcher Dr Michael Snow said water quality was now the focus.

“Millions” of dead fish wash up ashore in Ancol, stinking up the area

By Coconuts Jakarta November 30, 2015 / 16:39 WIB
It’s been a bad few days for fish in Jakarta.

Scores of small dead fish washed up along the Ancol coastline in North Jakarta this morning .

“The dead fish are found along Ancol beach, from Jimbaran all the way to the other end. Maybe there are millions [of dead fish],” said Police Commissioner Edi Guritno, head of the Law Enforcement Sub-Directorate at the Jakarta Maritime Police, as quoted by Detik today.


Residents are reporting horrid, foul smells coming from the area.

Authorities have not figured out what killed the fish. Samples of the fish were taken to a lab to investigate this extremely strange occurrence.

While the waters around North Jakarta’s coastline aren’t known for being the cleanest, this is a pretty alarming sign that there may be some seriously toxic contaminants in the water. Hopefully authorities will figure out the cause quickly before it affects the capital’s water or food supplies.
