Fauna

Tracking mass animal kills and other biotic oddities since May 2010. A number of reasons can be cited including industrial or military pollution, geoengineering, and deliberate government action, as with the US Dept. of Agriculture killing a million birds each year. Official explanation for most of these mass kills is complete bunk and deliberate deception (like birds drinking themselves to death from eating too many grapes).


Click on the image to enlarge it. This map was originally prepared by UK’s Daily Mail, and was modified January 2011 to add new information. Since then, the list has grown considerably.

Here’s a more inclusive map (thru Jan. 2011), which also gives cited info. (Or click map below to enlarge. I’ve added two not on the original map: Bio-Bio, Chile and Parana, Brazil.)

Officials cite bizarre reasons for mass kills in this August 2010 report of millions of dead fish in Massachusetts, New Jersey and Virginia:

However, the USDA admits it kills millions of animals a year, viewing them as pests. See Martha Rosenberg’s piece, Worse Than Fireworks Deaths? Government Blackbird Poisoning. (Jan. 4, AlterNet)
