OFFICIAL !! EXPERTS SAY MASS DIE-OFFS HAPPEN ALL THE TIME AND UNRELATED !!
[link to news.yahoo.com]

WASHINGTON First, the blackbirds fell out of the sky on New Year's Eve in Arkansas. In recent days, wildlife have mysteriously died in big numbers: 2 million fish in the Chesapeake Bay, 150 tons of red tilapia in Vietnam, 40,000 crabs in Britain and other places across the world. Blogs connected the deadly dots, joking about the "aflockalypse" while others saw real signs of something sinister, either biblical or environmental.

The reality, say biologists, is that these mass die-offs happen all the time and usually are unrelated.

Federal records show they happen on average every other day somewhere in North America. Usually, we don't notice them and don't try to link them to each other.

"They generally fly under the radar," said ornithologist John Wiens, chief scientist at the California research institution PRBO Conservation Science.

Since the 1970s, the U.S. Geological Survey's National Wildlife Health Center in Wisconsin has tracked mass deaths among birds, fish and other critters, said wildlife disease specialist LeAnn White. At times the sky and the streams just turn deadly. Sometimes it's disease, sometimes pollution. Other times it's just a mystery.

In the 40s and 50s experts said that it was safe to smoke cigarettes and they wouldn't cause cancer.

Yes. We've been told they died of massive physical trauma. But no one can say how someone got a cricket bat up into the air and hit 5,000 birds at one time.

Then Why the STUPID firework excuse?

Think about it. You don't need excuses for "Natural" events.

Strange I've never heard of mass die-offs like this before happening world-wide in a one week period.

TPTB usually say it's just that we are more aware of these events due to how quickly news spreads via the internet, but the internet isn't something that just happened in the past few years.

I believe they are just trying to give us a false sense of security that "nothing is going on."

I know die-offs happen, I've heard about them my whole life. The strangest thing about this isn't the fact that some birds and fish died, it's the timing. It started a few minutes after midnight Jan. 1 and hasn't stopped. If this really happens this frequently, where were the bird and fish die-offs that happened in this country during the week between Xmas and New Years day that weren't reported. Have any american posters here heard of any die-offs in their area that happened during that week.
