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.

I'm not really buying it. Look at all the comments to the story, most of them are from people that are realizing that something is up, People that are not trusting the media or the government.

I'd like to see some of those sources... perhaps then I'd actually believe it.

No, I think you misunderstood my take on it . I was posting this because I think it is bs, but this is the medias answer- "ehhh, It's nothing , this sort of thing happens all the time, we just don't report it"

Just because some expert says so, doesn't make it fact. I do not feel like it is a normal occurrence, especially with all the other issues going on with the Earth at this time.

What do they do there ? Does anyone care about accountability , who is in charge here ... someone is not doing here not doing there job and i sense a little lying . But of course the government wouldnt * lie .

No problem, man. Since the MSM claims that these mass deaths are a normal occurrence and happen frequently, the thing that baffles me is the insane amount of attention they are suddenly getting in the media. I have NEVER heard about anything like thousands of birds dropping from the sky and dying (besides in movies), or thousands of fish randomly washing up on shores dead. That may not be the case for other people, but I find it strange that since this is such a "frequent occurrence", I am only just now beginning to heard about it for the first time. I think they are blatantly lying to the public to try and keep us calm, prevent us from panicking, because I guess our weak little minds can't handle a little truth and fear.
