  • Mid-January – 7000 buffalo die in Vietnam. Officials have been reporting 700 buffalo deaths per day.

Interestingly, this time last year there were also a number of animal deaths being reported:

168 Pilot Whales beached themselves on the shores of New Zealand last February, and just 7 months ago 500 penguins washed ashore along the coast of Brazil. Both of these incidents puzzled locals and to this day no reason has been confirmed.

According to wildlife disease specialist LeAnn White, the U.S. Geological Survey has been tracking mass animal deaths since the 1970’s. Ms. White said “In the past eight months, the USGS has logged 95 mass wildlife die-offs in North America and that’s probably a dramatic under count”.

The log includes 4,300 ducks in Minnesota, 900+ turkey vultures in Florida, 1500 salamanders in Idaho, 2,000 bats in Texas, and many many more.

Ms. White’s colleague, director Jonathon Sleeman of the National Wildlife Health Center in Wisconsin claims to have tracked 16 mass bird deaths over the past 20 years. 7 of those incidents have occurred over the last 2 months.

It is known that the majority of fish deaths annually are caused by pollution and in respect to the areas most commonly affected, Eastern Asia and recently, the Gulf of Mexico, have experienced devastating levels of pollution. Last year 900 plants and animals became extinct.

North Carolina has been seeing Pelican deaths consistently for 6 weeks, although they are believed to be the result of human slaughter. The pelicans have been found bludgeoned, shot, stabbed and gruesomely decapitated.

One cause for many of the bird deaths in the USA is The United States Department of Agriculture which recently informed the public of their program they refer to as “Bye Bye Blackbird”.  The USDA admits to poisoning and killing a total of 4,120,295 animals in a single year (2009), ranging from birds to beavers, mountain lions, wolves, squirrels, wild pigs, porcupines, and even a bald eagle, which they claim was unintentional.  These mass killings are all funded by U.S. tax dollars.

If you (understandably) do not believe me and/or want to view the document with your own eyes, here is the link [PDF]

There is much speculation on what is causing these mass animal deaths ranging from Scalar technology, abnormally harsh weather, pollution, radiation, magnetic pole shifts, government interference, oil spills and countless others.  Today one-third of the earth’s plants and animals are at risk of extinction.
