It has been reported recently that seals have been washing up on shore dead. I know this for a fact as I have found and reported one at hampton Beach
state park in June. Now I repeat this was June. Do you mean to tell me they have know idea why they are dying. I do.
Lets see how long this thread last before it is killed.
I have been going to ham,pton beach since I was a child. So lets say at a minimum 35 years that I can remember. I recall dead blue fish , striped bass
and all other species of fish. You would always see something over the years but nothing like the dead seals. I have been going to the beach for ever
and know the beach like the back of my hand.
Now this is what I think is going on.
About 4 weeks ago we all went to the beach for the day and it was beautiful. We walked up and down the beach from the jedi on the right side of the
beach to the rocks at the complete other side of the beach. After that day when we all came home every thing seams fine. About a week later we all
came down with some sort of resperatory illness. Me first, then the wife and kids. I would have to say in all my years I never had anything like this.
Sore chest deep congestion which you cannot get the mucus up when you cough and your coughing alot so much that your ribs are sore. So I call the
doctor and go I and come to find out I have a deep respoeratory infection. I call the pediatrician and have the kids go in and the same they all have
a deep resperatory infection even the wife. So after us all being on anitbiotics for 2 weeks it is finally clearing up.
Now people ask your self something. How long does it take to cut open a seal and do a necropcy on it. It has been over six months and nothing is being
reported in the media. I have contacted woods hole reaserch center to see if they know anything and mo response or phone calls.
Anyone been to the beach withing the last month ago and go in the water.
I know the 2 are linked but have no way to prove it. I also noticed at the left hand side of the beach where the rocks are there is this brownish foam
on the water and it looks like it could not be good. I wonder if the water is infected with some type of bacteria that is causing this same infection
in seal pups.
Is there some way to gather the foam and try to grow the bacteria in it to see if it is infectious? I was at the beach believe it or not yesterday.
And I have been clean of the infection so I guess I am the guinni pig now as I was in the water for several hours walking up and down ther beach and I
have an open cut on my pinky toe so.
I guess I will find out if I become ill again.
This is just specualtion at this point but I really believe this is related.
Also I noticed some strange stuff in the sand by the rocks which looked kind of odd.
When I looked at the sane it looked like there was little tubes of sand like if it were a strand of bacteria growing under a microscope that is what I
would say it looked like.
If anyone doubts what I am saying and lives in the area. Go to hampton beach and park near the center where the woman statue is. Want on the beach and
go all the way to the left. Go down to the water and take a deep breath and smell that smell which kinds of smells like seaweed and something funky.
Wehn to go to the are it has to be low tide so you can walk in the rocks and look at the sand around the rocks. You will see the squigles I refer to.
This is the first year I have noticed the squiggles in the sand. No it is not sea worms as I see them all the time and see the trail they make when
they walk and it is not a snail trail of crab poop. It looks like a spiral of bacteria or like DNA that is squggled up on the sand.
