More and more animals are being found dead as the mysterious spate of mass bird and fish deaths has turned into a global phenomenon.
The mass deaths now include:
450 red-winged blackbirds, brown-headed cowbirds, grackles and starlings found littering a highway in Baton Rouge, Louisiana
3,000 blackbirds on roofs and roads in the small town of Beebe, Arkansas
100 tons of sardines, croaker and catfish wash up dead on Brazilian coast
Thousands of ‘devil crabs’ washed up along the Kent coast near Thanet, England
Thousands of drum fish washed along a 20-mile stretch of the Arkansas River
Tens of thousands of small fish in Chesapeake Bay, Maryland
Hundreds of snapper fish found dead in New Zealand
Experts are blaming the deaths on New Year fireworks, thunderstorms, cold weather, parasites and even poisoning. Around the web people are talking about 2012 and the Mayan Prophecies, Armageddon and government conspiracies.
Results of the testing of the dead animals are not expected for at least two weeks. Until we get the results (assuming they aren’t covered up!) we have nothing to go on but the words of these ‘experts’ and the theories of doom.
