Isolated cases or something more alarming?
Jan 17, 2011
Concerns over mass animal deaths continue to mount with the news that around 200 cows have mysteriously been found dead in Wisconsin, as well as hundreds of seals washing ashore dead in Labrador, Canada.
The cows were reportedly killed by a mystery infection , with officials still unable to identify the exact cause after samples were sent to laboratories in Madison for analysis.
According to reports, the owner of the cattle told sheriff’s deputies he suspects the cows succumbed to IBR (infectious bovine rhinotracheitis) or BVD (bovine virus diarrhea). Both diseases can cause respiratory and reproductive problems.
In a separate case, residents on the north coast of Labrador have reported seeing large numbers of dead seals  washing up on beaches.
The Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) is testing the carcasses. A working theory is that the area’s seal population has grown too large, resulting in a higher mortality rate.
In both cases scientists believe there are rational explanations, however, with so many other examples of mysterious mass animal deaths within the last few weeks, questions will once again be raised as to whether the cases are in any way linked.
Unexplained animal deaths have also been reported in Ontario, Canada , Italy , Brazil , Sweden , The Philippines , Great Britain , Haiti , Australia  and New Zealand .
The number of different cases of dead birds and fish around the U.S. and globally has been matched by the myriad of different explanations as to the cause of their demise.
The more mundane causes are cited as fireworks, localized hail, power lines, or other temporary phenomena that caused the birds to panic and fly into one another. However, this doesn’t explain why similar events are occurring in different areas of the country or indeed the world and it doesn’t address the issue of mass deaths of other animals.
As we have documented , the primary suspects should always be governments given the fact that they have routinely engaged in secret testing of biological and electromagnetic weapons  that have detrimentally impacted both humans and animals many times in the past.
Birds falling dead out of the sky, and fish washing up dead on shores and rivers across North America and around the world, have so far largely been passed off in the mainstream media as unexplained isolated acts of nature. With deaths of larger animals now in the frame, the phenomenon may be investigated more vigorously.
