An updated list of fish and bird deaths from around the world, along with official explanations. The official explanations vary: cold, poison, hit by traffic, intoxicated, getting lost, forgetting to migrate, "beats us," fireworks, fishing nets damaged, storms, earthquakes, humans killing animals, algae, and "a strange white fog caused lung infection." Er, what?
Updated List Of Animal Die-Offs
In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying
"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy
