Thousands of dead birds wash up on Ontario shores

Jeremiah 12:4 “How long will the land mourn and the grass of every field wither? Because of the evil of its residents, animals and birds have been swept away, for [the people] have said, “He cannot see what our end will be.”

Father is permitting much of Her animal Kingdom to die off here in these last days of this old system of things; and those animals are blameless in Father’s eyes; they just got caught up in Dawn’s misdealings that have led to dire consequences for every one and everything on this dying planet; is the Earth dying? YES it is; but Father won’t let it happen, and is why She’s intervened against Mankind’s harsh treatment of Her property’ Father is altering the Earth as I write this; She is also letting things get worse as far as Mankind goes, but will pull the Earth back from the brink of destruction.

As many as 6,000 dead birds have washed up on the shores of Georgian Bay in Ontario, say authorities, who believe botulism may be to blame.

Ontario Provincial Police Constable Peter Leon said Saturday the number of dead waterfowl is estimated to be between 5,000 and 6,000.

The dead birds are scattered along a nearly three-kilometre stretch north of the community of Wasaga Beach, said Constable Leon.

Federal and provincial officials believe the cause of the death is a form of botulism, apparently from the birds eating dead fish, he said.

A spokeswoman for Natural Resources Minister Michael Gravelle says staff in his department are monitoring the situation and planned to be at the scene on Sunday to collect more samples. Two weeks ago the Ministry of Natural Resources issued a news release saying the death of large numbers of fish and wildlife on the Great Lakes is not uncommon at certain times of the year. Georgian Bay is on Lake Huron.

Small-scale die-offs caused by botulism occur annually around the Great Lakes, with the last large-scale one happening in Lake Ontario in 2007, the ministry said.

According to public health agencies, no cases of human illness have been attributed to outbreaks of botulism in the Great Lakes.

Type E botulism toxin is produced by a bacterium that lives in lake bottom sediment, and under certain conditions it begins producing the toxin, which then enters the aquatic food chain, according to the ministry. Birds who eat affected fish can die.

Health Canada says proper cooking and handling of food eliminates the botulism toxin.

Police say people in the area are being advised to keep a close eye on their children and pets to make sure they stay away from the dead birds. – The Globe and Mail

Hundreds of Birds Dead in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

August 12, 2011 Comments off

(Broken Arrow, OK)  –  It was a bit of a mystery as hundreds of birds were found dead yesterday in the Oklahoma town of Broken Arrow.

Tulsa County and state experts say severe weather is to blame.

Officials speculate lightning and thunder scared the birds out of the trees, causing them to either fly or be blown back into trees and buildings.

Most of the birds were found near a local Walmart.

Experts are also speculating the birds were so soaked with rain, they died from hypothermia.

State wildlife experts say bird die-offs are common after severe weather.

They also say there is no threat of disease from the dead birds. – MyStateline.com

The main stream media has turned its attention elsewhere, but we will continue to report these important signs of End Times.

Recent Outbreaks and Epidemic & Biological Hazards July 18-24, 2011

Toxic Seaweed (France) Fears in Brittany over the health risks of toxic seaweed have been re-ignited after two wild boar were found dead on a beach and the amount of the foul-smelling green algae collected from western French shores has doubled in a year. Conservationists say that toxic seaweed has now spread to more than 200 sites along the Atlantic coast from southern Brittany to the beaches of Normandy. Bays popular with Britons from La Baule, a top summer beach destination in southern Brittany, to Granville in the Cotentin are now struggling to dispose of thousands of tons of Ulva lactuca – more commonly known as sea lettuce. Experts have warned that the algae poses a health risk as when it rots it produces hydrogen sylphide, which if trapped under a seaweed crust and suddenly released can prove as deadly as cyanide. Anses, the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety, has just issued guidelines for dealing with the green sludge, saying it must be picked up within 48 hours of reaching the beach before it can start producing gas. If not, in the worst cases, it can cause “loss of consciousness with cardiac arrest or coma”.

Dead Birds (Australia & New Zealand) The number of prions that perished on the west coast of the North Island in last week’s stormy weather could be in the tens of thousands. Though the species was not endangered, the birds might have “taken quite a good hit”, said Manawatu/Wanganui Bird Rescue co-ordinator Dawne Morton. She was kept busy with the birds from Tuesday to Friday last week. They were picked up dead and alive along the length of the coast, from Wellington to North Cape. More than 600 birds were being nursed back to health at Massey University, others by the Conservation Department in New Plymouth and Wellington Zoo. At Massey the birds were put in warm water ponds, fed and re-waterproofed. Badly hurt birds were euthanised. The prions’ small size put them at particular risk.

Mysterious Infection (Columbia) Five children of the indigenous group Chimila died of a mysterious respiratory infection in the department of Magdalena, reported Radio Santa Fe Thursday. According to the department’s governor, Manuel Jose Bonett Locarno, the infection has yet to be “clearly defined” by hospitals in the region because members of the Chimila group have not allowed full access to the sick patients and corpses. Locarno explained that there are at least 23 people who are presenting similar symptoms, and that they were transferred to different medical facilities in the region for treatment. According to the report, a hospital in the city of Barranquilla accepted three young children who were in poor health condition. A medical team has been sent to the department to assess the situation.

Measles (Mexico) Mexican health officials say a French baby girl who recently flew in from Paris is Mexico’s first case of measles in four years. The toddler has not been identified, but Health Secretary Jose Angel Cordova says the Mexico City neighborhood where she is staying is under quarantine. Health officials are vaccinating workers at the capital’s airport. Authorities also are contacting passengers who were on the July 10 flight with the baby to notify them a traveler was infected with the highly contagious measles virus. The World Health Organization recorded more than 12,000 cases in the first five months of this year in Europe. Most of the cases were in France.

Jellyfish Invasion (Spain) Six beaches were closed to bathers this week after a plague of jellyfish resulted in no less than 90 casualties suffering with stings. The beaches at Punta Prima, La Mosca, Playa Flamenca, Cala, Zenia and Cala Capitan were all closed following recommendation by the Red Cross. Several swimmers called emergency services via 112 from early in the morning on Wednesday, with the Red Cross requesting an immediate inspection of the water via jet skis. Hundreds of jellyfish were sighted off shore, prompting the Red Cross to hoist a red Flag along the Orihuela coast to ensure swimmers’ safety. Punta Prima suffered the worst casualties with a total of 18 stings. A yellow flag that recommends caution when swimming was hoisted later on Wednesday at La Fustera near Calpe.

Fish & Marine Life Deaths (Florida) U.S. authorities are investigating what could be killing hundreds of fish and other marine animals – including sharks and manatees – which in recent days have been washing up on beaches in southwestern Florida. “High temperatures and cloudy, rainy days can spell trouble for fish in Florida’s marine and freshwater habitats. These conditions can cause fish kills, which are natural occurrences that typically do not cause permanent damage to the ecosystem or to fish populations,” the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said. Even so, the FWC asked in a news release for cooperation from the public in monitoring the deaths of the marine life and determining if the phenomenon is spreading to natural lakes and estuaries in the area “to see if there are problems developing in an ecosystem that might require investigation or restorative measures.” The bodies of the dead animals – which include eels, crabs, rays, trout, tortoises and various kinds of tropical fish – have been turning up in recent days on several Florida beaches, among them the one at Naples

Chicken Pox Epidemic (India) At least three dozen children have taken ill due to the outbreak of chicken pox in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district, locals said on Wednesday. The outbreak of the highly contagious viral disease- chicken pox has been recorded in Badmulla village of Narwaaw in the district over the last two months. With over three dozen cases as reported by the locals, the outbreak has triggered panic in the village with the families left to take care of their children at their houses instead of hospitals. The locals alleged that the health department demonstrated ‘callous attitude’ to deal with the disease that has gripped the children of the Village, even as the officials were informed on time.

Unidentified Illness (Mexico) Three of 6 young Mexican mestizo civil engineers between 19 and 21 years of age remain hospitalized (day +8) due to a febrile illness accompanied by muscle pain and spasms following contact with bats and their guano in the state of San Luis Potosi, Mexico. The 6 engineers were reported to have been working for ICA (a private engineering company contracted by the state government of San Luis Potosi, Mexico) cleaning road gullies and drainage channels/tunnels in the highway connecting Rayon and Tamasopo (roughly 21 deg 51’50.74″ N, 99 deg 29’34.09″ W). 3 of the men are being attended at the Zonal General Hospital IMSS [Mexican Social Security Institute] no 2 in the state capital of San Luis Potosi and maintained in isolation. The whereabouts of the 3 other men has not been disclosed.

Meningitis (Swaziland) Three pupils from different schools in the Shiselweni region died mysteriously, forcing parents to suspect an outbreak of the deadly meningitis disease. However, the ministry of health has allayed fears of the suspected outbreak in Hlatikulu and surrounding areas. The deaths were reported in the past two weeks and the children showed similar symptoms that could be linked to the disease. Such include headaches, fever and vomiting. Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Health Dr Steven Shongwe advised the public not to panic as the ministry has not yet detected the disease. He said the ministry would inform the nation if there was any outbreak.

Bird Flu (Vietnam) The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development’s Animal Health Department in Vietnam has announced the re-emergence of bird flu in the central Quang Tri Province after thousands of poultry were reportedly affected. More than 2,200 affected ducks in Hai Lang District’s Hai Thien Commune and Gio Linh District’s Gio Linh Town were culled. In the northern Phu Tho Province, nearly 1,500 poultry in Ha Hoa District’s Chinh Cong Commune died of the flu.

Mysterious Cattle Disease (India) A total of 5 more cattle have been claimed by the ‘mysterious disease’ that spread in and around the Makhan village of Manipur’s Senapati district even as state Veterinary Department still has no clue about the disease. On 11 Jul 2011, Newmai News Network had reported that over 50 cows and buffaloes had been killed by the mysterious disease. A team of officials of the state veterinary department led by its joint director had visited Makhan village and took stock of the situation on Wednesday (13 Jul 2011). While collecting samples required for determining the disease, the team also provided medicines. They also administered injections to the cattle infected by the disease as a step towards contentment of the disease.

Typhoid Outbreak (Philippines) Seventeen more patients were admitted to hospitals in southern Cebu after a suspected typhoid outbreak hit Alegria town Tuesday. This brought to 87 the total number of individuals affected by the typhoid fever; most of them are residents of Barangays Valencia and Compostela in Alegria, said health officials. The victims have complained of headache, stomach pains, and joint pains, which, according to experts, are symptoms of typhoid fever. Other symptoms of the disease are fever as high as 39 to 40 degrees Celsius, malaise or weakness, and loss of appetite. Some patients may have flat, rose-colored spots.

Measles (New Zealand) Sixteen people have contracted measles following the latest outbreak in Auckland, with two hospitalised as a result. The outbreak of the potentially deadly illness is the second in Auckland so far this year, though officials say the cases are all linked to a single case and are confident they have it under control. Quarantines have been imposed on around 140 students from at least two schools. Seventy unimmunised children from Oratia District School were isolated in their homes for a fortnight after an eight-year-old boy was found to have contracted the highly infectious disease. Auckland Regional Public Health Service medical officer Dr Richard Hoskins said seven cases were confirmed there with two people hospitalised. A further two developed serious complications, he said. The unaffected students are due to return to school today.

Storms create `seabird wreck’

July 18, 2011 Comments off

Countless thousands of prions have died in a phenomenon the Department of Conservation is calling a “seabird wreck.”

DOC is caring for more than a hundred weak and weary seabirds at its New Plymouth headquarters but thousands more were found washed up dead on Taranaki beaches.

Marine supervisor Bryan Williams said DOC was inundated with the disoriented and distressed birds, which are being kept in cardboard boxes, on Wednesday.

Mr Williams said DOC staff scoured beaches at low tide yesterday and found more than 3500 dead birds.

Nearly 200 Queen’s swans killed by vandals and virus

June 29, 2011 Comments off

NEARLY 200 swans have died as a result of a severe winter and the worst outbreak of a virus for years, a Royal official says.

And many young birds are being shot in vandal attacks, causing “horrific” injuries and slow deaths, it has been revealed, ahead of the traditional Swan Upping on the River Thames.

The annual 12th century tradition is set to take place next month and this year’s census of the white water bird’s population will assess just how great the death toll has been.

Marlow will be one of the stops along the way as the Queen’s Swan Marker counts the number of young cygnets.

Assisted by the Queen’s Swan Warden, Professor Christopher Perrins of the University of Oxford, the swans and young cygnets are also assessed for injury and disease.

David Barber, The Queen’s Swan Marker said: “Another winter of severe weather has contributed to the death of many swans.

“Furthermore, a virus known as duck virus enteritis was discovered within the mute swan population on the River Thames.

“Unfortunately, more than 180 swans were found either dying or dead on the river between Reading and Windsor, with over 115 deaths being reported in the Windsor area alone.

He said the virus is not uncommon in swans but added: “this was the worst outbreak on the Thames we have seen in many years.”

Revelation 16:6 ” Because they poured out the blood of the saints and the prophets, You also gave them blood to drink; they deserve it!”

There will be nothing left to drink but that which is tainted with blood. This is why humankind will be: “longing for water.” Isaiah 29:8

When the sea life dies, another disaster comes into play; the evaporation of the sea waters to form rain will become out of balance except for rare occasions of rain, and then torrential floods in other areas; the rains will carry with it disease because of the deadly brew that has culminated from a dead sea of carcasses; and the lack of a normally rain cooled environment will give way to scorching heat waves of such a magnitude that it will be like this:

Revelation 16:8, 9 “The Fourth Bowl
The fourth poured out his bowl on the sun. He was given the power to burn people with fire, and people were burned by the intense heat. So they blasphemed the name of God who had the power over these plagues, and they did not repent and give Him glory.”

The plagues are caused by the dead sea creatures that have created the toxic brew.

Japan tsunami: Thousands of seabirds killed near Hawaii

March 16, 2011 Comments off

Thousands of albatrosses and other endangered species at a wildlife sanctuary north-west of Hawaii have been killed by the tsunami which devastated Japan, US officials say.

Thousands of petrels and fish were also killed as huge waves swept over parts of the remote, low-lying Midway atoll.

The sanctuary is home to more than two million birds.

One lucky survivor was Wisdom, an albatross about 60 years of age, who is the oldest-known bird in the US.

The Laysan albatross came to prominence recently when she was spotted with a chick, astounding scientists that she could still raise offspring at age 60-plus.

Midway is one of the most remote coral atolls on earth, developed as a wildlife sanctuary after the US Naval Air facility on Midway Island closed in 1993.

Midway was a key military base for the US during World War II, as well as during the Korean, Cold and Vietnam wars.

Rescue operation

The US Fish and Wildlife Service reported that 1,000 adult and adolescent Laysan albatross died when the tsunami generated by last Friday’s powerful earthquake off the coast of Japan struck Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge.

Tens of thousands of chicks were also killed.

Amos 9:1 “[ Fifth Vision: The LORD beside the Altar ] I saw the LORD standing beside the altar, and He said: Strike the capitals of the pillars so that the thresholds shake; knock them down on the heads of all the people. Then I will kill the rest of them with the sword. None of those who flee will get away; none of their fugitives will escape.”

The coming Great Earthquake will rock the earth off its very foundation, and buildings will crumble down upon the masses that live within them. Those not killed will not be wiped out with mere words, instead they will be killed with the swords of the materialized angelic warriors. Though they try to run away and seek cover, just like Adam and Eve sought to hide, they will be searched for with no stone left unturned until all are put to the sword. For them, it will be the Second Death delivered by Judgment of the Two-Edged Sword that brings eternal death on one edge.

Ireland. Dead swans in Grand Canal in Dublin

March 7, 2011 Comments off

We are getting reports of a number of dead swans in the GC in Dublin.  They are concentrated on the 7th level from Portobello to Suir Road Bridge.

A number were taken from the water for analysis last week.  A number of sick birds were also found and were taken to the DSPCA depot for treatment.

Another half dozen birds have been found dead this AM.

Initial reports suggest that the problem is NOT Avian Flu but is more likely some form of botulism or other bacterial infection.  The source is as yet unknown but a number of dead and rotting sea-fish were found in the area and that is one possible source.   Swans are known to be susceptible to this infection and similar cases have been reported from other areas in the past.

Many carcasses of birds found on, along Route 222

February 28, 2011 Comments off

Janeen Grell peered out of her car window Sunday and noticed a bunch of little black things lying along Route 222 in Spring Township.

“What’s that?” she said to her husband.

“Oh, my God,” she said an instant later. “They’re birds.”

Grell, 37, of Reinholds estimated that 50 to 100 black birds were lying dead on or along the highway, just north of the ramp from Route 724.

Just what killed so many birds in such a concentrated area remains a mystery.

Though a definitive number of dead birds could not be established, there were enough for Spring police to turn the matter over to the Pennsylvania Game Commission for investigation. Officials there could not be reached Sunday.

It is believed the birds are European starlings.

Ohio finds 200 dead geese, others sick along Lake Erie

February 19, 2011 1 comment

DETROIT (Reuters) – At least 200 geese have died for unknown reasons along the southwestern shores of Lake Erie while others are struggling to hold their heads up, stay upright and fly, Ohio officials said on Friday. No cause has been diagnosed. Some of the dead birds have been sent to a national wildlife laboratory in Wisconsin for testing. Many sick birds have been sent to rehabilitation facilities. The sick geese appear to have problems controlling their muscles, with many struggling to walk and others laying their heads on their backs, said Dave Sherman, a biologist at the Crane Creek Wildlife Research Station operated by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. A few of the birds have lost control of their muscles while flying and dropped out of the sky, he said.

Mass deaths of migratory blackbirds reported in Sevastopol

February 19, 2011 Comments off

SEVASTOPOL, February 19 (Itar-Tass) — Mass and still unexplained deaths of migratory blackbirds have been reported in Sevastopol. Dozens of dead birds lie on the Kamyshovskoye highway, in the Kazachya bay and other coastal areas. As an ornithologist, an expert on biodiversity with the Ukrainian Society for the Protection of Birds, Alexander Grinchenko, explained to anxious residents, for the present it is early to state that the blackbirds died from infection or were poisoned by food. These are migratory birds, and they had flown, most likely, from North Africa, where no epidemics are reported.
