Congo livestock epidemic kills 75,000 goats

June 27, 2012

"A livestock disease has reached epidemic proportions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and threatens to spread to other countries, the United Nations warned Tuesday.

In addition to goats, the disease - called peste des ruminants - threatens hundreds of thousands of sheep, the UN said in an emailed news release.

“This is the worst livestock epidemic in the country in more than 10 years,” UN Food and Agriculture Organization Representative Ndiaga Gueye said.

“We’re seeing that in response to the threat of their animals contracting the disease, farmers are moving their animals away from infected villages to where so far there have been no disease outbreaks, which has been spreading the virus to healthy flocks of animals,” he said.

Eighty-six percent of livestock that contract the disease die, the UN said."

Other livestock said to be in danger are located in Gabon, the Republic of Congo, Kenya and Tanzania.

The UN plans to provide money to vaccinate 500,000 livestock."

So if they are planning to vaccinate they must have known which disease would attach the livestock giving them the ability to know that they could produce the vaccine?????

Now lets look at the arms and certain (Chemical) weapons being given to the fighters in the Congo area and I just wonder if there is a link...Mmmm

OR

Shall we look at the rare earth mining that is actually going on and look to the run off of toxic chemicals into the water table Mmmmm

OR

Have certain waring groups used peste des ruminants as a weapon knowing the value African tribes put on their livestock, great way to impoverish the masses.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ovine_rinderpest

Now I wonder which pharma corporate is going to make money out of this one....

Here is a link to the Vaccine http://www.bvi.co.bw/products/PPR-VAC.html you will notice other vaccines BVI produce include Anthrax vaccine... and we know who likes to play with this one don't we...

Have a dig around the corporate profile and the "Bankers" http://www.bvi.co.bw/corporate-profile/index.html

Seems to be a lot of answers to very few questions when you look under the covers...

Oh I forgot the trail leads to this company http://merial.com/AboutUs/Pages/default.aspx

and if you keep digging it will all become quite contrived and planned if you step back and look at how business is done by TPTB  ;)

Stumbled upon this one....whilst looking for something else...makes me wonder how many of these kills are happening in any local area, that we are not hearing about...this kill took place they say because of the heat..doesn't matter why..just matters that it is happening..

DEAD FISH CLEANUP IN SOUTH KNOXVILLE

July 3, 2012

"Knoxville's public service crew work to clean up Butterfly Lake in South Knoxville's Colonial Village neighborhood on Monday, July 2, 2012. The record-breaking heat over the weekend depleted the pond water's oxygen levels and killed the fish, which totaled an estimated 10,000 or more small bluegills."

Now this sounds worrying.

At least for the continent of North-America that is.

For the dead fish the focus seems to be on this continent for the past 2 months.

Was there any massive sulphur-release from the river and lake soil during the past 4 months?

I ask this due to the over-active volcano's in the past year.

This could be the main cause of a massive fish death.

Heat blamed for fish kills in southern Minn. lakes

July 10, 2012

"ALBERT LEA, Minn. - The recent heat wave is blamed for killing thousands of fish in several southern Minnesota lakes.

Most of the lakes are shallow, and thus more susceptible to summer fish kills, and most of the fish were northern pike, which prefer cold water.

Affected waters include Geneva Lake north of Albert Lea, where Department of Natural Resources officials say several thousand northerns probably died, and Fountain Lake in Albert Lea, where hundreds of northerns floated up last weekend.

Jack Lauer, the regional fisheries manager in New Ulm, says he's heard of about 10 to 15 affected lakes. He says populations will recover.

Henry Drewes, the regional fisheries manager for northwestern Minnesota, says some waters around Alexandria have also seen fish kills, including Lake Christina and the Pomme de Terre (pom-duh-TAIR') River."

Brazil biologists investigate penguin deaths

July 13, 2012

"Brazilian biologists are investigating the deaths of more than 500 penguins found washed up on the beaches of Rio Grande do Sul state.

Autopsies are being conducted on some of the birds to determine the cause of death.

Researchers said the penguins appeared to have been well-fed, with no apparent injuries and no oil on their bodies.

Similar incidents in the past have been blamed on shifting ocean currents and colder temperatures.

Magellanic Penguins migrate to southern Brazil from Patagonia every year during the southern winter.

Last week dozens of young penguins were rescued from beaches in Rio de Janeiro after straying far beyond their normal range.

The birds delighted beach-goers, but scientists said their health was suffering in the tropical waters.

Brazil's environment agency is preparing to fly those penguins back to the south."

Dozens of wild peacocks die in Pakistan desert

July 30, 2012

"Dozens of wild peacocks have died suddenly in Pakistan, prompting experts to fear an outbreak of the highly contagious Newcastle disease.

Officials on Monday confirmed the deaths of at least 60 peacocks in Thar desert, part of southern Sindh province, over the last week. Local media reports say more than 100 of the exotic birds have died.

The wildlife ministry said tests were being done to diagnose the cause of death, but said the wild peacocks had been weakened by starvation, deforestation and a lack of safe drinking water blamed on delays to the annual monsoon rains.

"Wild peacocks have become susceptible tobacterial and fungal attack, which further suppressed the immunity of the birds that paved the room for viral attack," it said."

And lets not forget about researchers creating their own strains

After months of controversial government assessment, the journal Nature published research Wednesday that discloses methodology behind creating a deadly strain of bird flu that could kill millions.

By conducting research in ferrets, a team of Japanese and U.S. researchers found that it would take four mutations of the bird flu virus for the strain to successfully spread from birds to mammals. The research comes after months of delay because of arguments that pitted the cause of medical preparedness against the dangers of disclosing information that could help bioterrorists.

The study is the first of two research papers that discuss the methodology behind creating deadly avian flu strains that have potential to kill millions.http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/2012/05/02/controversial-deadly-bird-flu-research-finally-published/

Thousands of fish die as Midwest streams heat up

Thousands of fish are dying in the Midwest as the hot, dry summer dries up rivers and causes water temperatures to climb in some spots to nearly 100 degrees.

About 40,000 shovelnose sturgeon were killed in Iowa last week as water temperatures reached 97 degrees. Nebraska fishery officials said they've seen thousands of dead sturgeon, catfish, carp, and other species in the Lower Platte River, including the endangered pallid sturgeon. And biologists in Illinois said the hot weather has killed tens of thousands of large- and smallmouth bass and channel catfish and is threatening the population of the greater redhorse fish, a state-endangered species.

Major Fish Kill Reported On Texas Coast

August 13, 2012

56468547.jpg

"GALVESTON (August 13, 2012)--Hundreds of thousands of dead fish have washed up on the beach in Galveston, where crews went to work Monday to remove the dead fish.

Peter Davis of the Galveston Island Beach Patrol said Sunday the small shad fish likely were killed by low oxygen levels in the Gulf of Mexico.

Davis estimated hundreds of thousands of fish have died.

Galveston County health officials said the water is fine for beachgoers.

Biologist Steven Mitchell with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department said calm conditions and summer heat may have contributed to the fish kill.

He said there's a possibility of a dead zone in the water off Galveston.

Testing is expected this week."

Dozens of dead fish found along stretch of Myrtle Beach

Amy Vitrano | WBTW News13

Published: August 17, 2012

"MYRTLE BEACH, SC --

The Department of Natural Resources along with other state agencies investigate a possible fish kill in the Myrtle Beach area.

Phil Maier, director of Coastal Reserves and Outreach for DNR, said there were groups of dead fish found between 28th and 68th Avenues North Friday. He said they were several species found: flounder, stingray and pompano.

Maier said the past couple of days there have been light southwest winds, warm water and spring ties; all of the right conditions for “low dissolved oxygen level.”

Fish experts puzzling over whitefish die-offs

August 31, 2012

"POCATELLO, Idaho -- State fisheries biologists are reporting an increase in the number of mountain whitefish dying in eastern Idaho streams and rivers.

Idaho Fish and Game experts say the die-off is troubling and they are counting on the public to help figure out why.

The Idaho State Journal reports ( http://bit.ly/njfaln) that dead fish have turned up in recent weeks on the South Fork of the Snake River and the main stem of the Snake River. Reports of dead whitefish have also come from the Teton and North Fork of the Salmon rivers.

Regional Fisheries Manager Dan Garre says the cause is a mystery. He says it's interesting that the die-off is targeting whitefish typically under 10 inches - and not trout.

Tissue samples have been sent to a state lab for analysis."

Tens of thousands of dead fish stink up Lake Erie shore

Sept 5, 2012

120905021801-erie-fish-kill-story-top.jpgTens of thousands of dead fish are stinking up a 25-mile stretch of Lake Erie shoreline.

"Tens of thousands of dead fish have washed up on a 25-mile stretch of Lake Erie's northern shore, and Ontario environmental officials say they could be victims of a natural phenomenon called a lake inversion.

The inversion brings cold water, which has lower oxygen levels, to the lake's surface and fish suffocate.

"Essentially it's a rolling over of the lake," Ontario Ministry of the Environment spokeswoman Kate Jordan told The Chatham Daily News. "Something – whether it be a storm, or cooler temperatures at night, or strong winds – triggers a temperature change in the lake."

Jordan said it was windy and choppy on the lake Friday night, according to a report in The Windsor Star. The fish kill was reported Saturday."

Mass stranding of pilot whales at Anstruther in Fife

Sept 2, 2012

"A total of 16 whales have died after being stranded on the east coast of Scotland.

Ten others were refloated after being kept alive by vets from British Divers and Marine Life Rescue.

The incident between Anstruther and Pittenweem in Fife involved pilot whales, each of them approximately 20ft (6m) long.

The whales that survived will be monitored for the next 24 hours to see if they re-beach.

Forth coastguard were alerted to the incident at about 07:00 BST on Sunday.

Three of the whales that died were calves."

US experts probe beaching that killed 17 whales

Sept 2, 2012

"US scientists are to investigate what led 22 whales to beach themselves in Florida—killing 17 of them—one of three such incidents in North America over the weekend.

The dead whales will be "dispersed at different labs across Florida for necropsy," or animal autopsies, Blair Mase, regional stranding coordinator for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, told AFP on Sunday. Only five of the 22 pilot whales survived after beaching themselves Saturday morning at Avalon Beach State Park, on the east coast of Florida, despite efforts by volunteers and experts to save the group. So far, it is unclear why the whales swam ashore. Mase said experts would collect data to try to find out why the whales stranded themselves. The survivors, four juveniles and one calf, are "stable" and "swimming on their own," Mase said. They are currently at the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute and will likely be transported later to SeaWorld in Orlando."

Sinkhole area Isaac aftermath fish kills raise potable water question

Sept 5, 2012

"In an Examiner interview with a Bayou Corne sinkhole area resident Monday, it was reported that he observed the smell of dead fish in the bayou that officials there now question in regard to potable water, as nearby parishes are also report fish kills.

"We are aware of fish kills reported in the Bayou Lafourche, Belle River, and surrounding Lake Verret areas," Assumption Parish officials state in its blog post. "The question is: How is this going to affect our water being Bayou Lafourche is our potable water supply??"

Dennis Landry, resident of Bayou Corne community told the Examiner, "I can tell you, I've smelled this before. I think there will be dead fish floating on this bayou soon."

Landry and his wife Pat were the first to report gas bubbles in the bayou in early May."

Hurricane Isaac Leaves Nutria Dead On Mississippi Beaches

Reuters  |  Posted: 09/04/2012

"By Emily Le Coz

TUPELO, Miss., Sept 4 (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of rats killed by Hurricane Isaac have washed up onto the beaches of Mississippi and created a foul-smelling mess that officials say will take days to clean up.

When the hurricane lifted the tides, the water washed across the marshy areas in Louisiana where the semi-aquatic rats live and forced them to ride the waves into Mississippi until they succumbed to exhaustion and drowned, said David Yarborough, a supervisor for Hancock County on the Gulf Coast.

The tides then deposited their bodies on the Mississippi shoreline, he said.

As of Tuesday, about 16,000 of the rodents have been collected in Hancock County, where a hired contractor's clean-up efforts are expected to continue for another week, officials said."

"In addition to the rats, workers also found dead hogs, deer, coyotes, snakes and rabbits on the beaches." (Editing by David Adams and Philip Barbara)

Over 500 pigeons drop dead in Bihar village

November 6, 2012

Mohan Singh

"PATNA: More than five hundred pigeons have dropped dead at a village in Bihar's Bhagalpur district over the last four days, causing residents, some of them pigeon-keepers, to fear that something was amiss.

District officials are still to visit the site and conduct an inquiry. "We were shocked, and we cannot understand why it happened," Subodh Kumar Singh, a keeper of pigeons who lost 250 birds in two days, said. Another pigeon keeper, Mohan Singh, said, "We need some manner of inquiry into this. Why did such a large number of pigeons drop dead in a matter of days?" Other pigeon keepers like Subhit Singh, Radhe Singh and Bhumeshwar Singh said that the government ought to investigate the deaths."

http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2012-11-06/patna/34947160_1_pigeons-bihar-village-bird-flu

50,000 Starfish Found in Ireland’s Lissadell Beach (Photo)

About 50,000 starfish were mysteriously stranded over the shore of Lissadell Beach in North County Sligo in Ireland last November 6, 2012

Bill Crowe, a marine biologist and lecturer at Sligo Institute of Technology, believed that the pink and mauve echinoderms may have been affected by the extreme weather conditions in the area. The starfish may have died due to red tide or algal bloom.

Crowe speculated that “The most likely explanation is that they were feeding on mussels but it is a little strange that none of them were attached to mussels when they were washed in.”

According to a Belfast Telegraph report, an adult starfish found is measuring from 7cm to 20cm in diameter.

The life-less starfish were spread along the 150 meters shore.

Earlier this year, thousands of dead starfish were also washed ashore in the area of Youghal Beach in County Cork.

RSPB investigates the mysterious deaths of thousands of migrating birds lost at sea

November 13, 2012

By Damien Gayle

"The RSPB are investigating the mysterious deaths of thousands of common migratory birds out at sea.

Fishermen have reported seeing hundreds of seemingly exhausted and disoriented garden birds dropping from the sky into the waters off England's south coast.

At the same time, the east coast, from Northumberland to Kent, has seen the arrival of many birds, including redwings, fieldfares, bramblings and blackbirds, perhaps numbering in their millions.

One professional boat skipper told the conservation charity: 'While fishing about 10 miles south of Portsmouth, we witnessed thousands of garden birds disorientated, land on the sea and most drowning.

'Species included goldcrests, robins, thrushes and blackbirds. The sky was thick with garden birds. I estimate I saw 500 birds die and that was just in our 300-yard sphere.

'On the way home we just saw dead songbirds in the water: it was a harrowing sight.

Martin Harper, the RSPB’s conservation director, said: 'The scale of these reports are truly shocking, and it has the potential to adversely affect the status of species which may be declining for other reasons.'

It is believed that the birds fell victim to an appalling combination of fog and heavy winds around England's coasts at the end of last month.

The RSPB suggests that the massive swarms of birds arriving on the east coast may have been the lucky survivors that managed to make it across the North Sea from Scandinavia in difficult conditions.

Many others may have perished before making landfall, the Society said."
