“They will fall out of the sky and have trouble staying upright.”
- Dave Sherman, Biologist, Crane Creek Wildlife
Research Station, Ohio Depart. of Natural Resources
Dozens of mallard ducks and Canada geese have recently died along western Lake Erie's shoreline, while others are so sick they cannot hold up their
heads, fly, or maintain control of their motor functions. Tissue samples have been sent to the national wildlife laboratory in Wisconsin for analysis,
but so far no one has an answer and Ohio wildlife investigators are baffled. “They're throwing their heads back. They're losing all balance and
literally almost all back-somersault and have a seizure,” says Laura Zitzelberger, Nature's Nursery Operations Director. Anyone who sees geese
acting strangely can contact the Crane Creek Wildlife Research Station at 419-898-0960.
I'm not quite sure what to make of this. Is it a natural illness, drugging, or poising? Is this related to the mass die offs from earlier this
Has anyone heard of the results of testing that have been done on some of these mass die offs? I'm REALLY curious as to how many of the die offs are
still going on but are not being reported! I still believe these animals are acting as the canary in the mineshaft.
And the mystery continues.....
Peace & Respect,
