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

Mystery as 20 TONNES of fish wash up on Kvaenes beach in Norway | Mail Online

Mystery as 20 TONNES of fish wash up on Kvaenes beach in Norway | Mail Online

Thousands of dead herring have been discovered washed up on a north Norwegian beach - prompting Doomsday predictors to hail it as another sign the world is set to end.
More than 20 tonnes of the fish is currently carpeting the beach of Kvaenes, in Nordreisa, with experts views differing on how they have come to be there. One thing is for sure, it will provide welcome ammunition to those believing the Mayan prophecy that 2012 will bring the end of Earth.
There are theories of course:

"...Maybe the fish have been caught in a deprived oxygen environment, and then died of fresh water?'... Experts have said the school could have been trapped by tidal waters after predatory fish - such as coalfish - chased them towards the shoreline. . . the fish were washed ashore during a recent storm, or trapped in shallow waters and affected by freshwater from a river that flows into the bay... several factors could have come together at once. . . they had died of a disease.

The article ends with a mention of Beebee, Arkansas.
