Timeline of Animal Die-Offs: Coincidence or Conspiracy?
I’ve hesitated to report on the animal deaths that we’ve all been hearing about. I wasn’t sure how to feel about it. Is it a natural occurrence being overblown by an overzealous media? Are they playing on our current wave of Apocalypse mania? Or is there something more? Some Conspiracy Theories have been; blaming the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (http://www.commentart.com/), the BP Oil Spill (Corexit), wholesale viagra, Source, or perhaps even the Biblical End Times are upon us:
I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, said the LORD. ~ Zephaniah 1:3
I’m not entirely convinced that what is happening isn’t completely natural. In my mind, whenever something becomes an obsession of the mainstream media, we MUST keep an open mind as to why they are obsessed. Is there an agenda being pushed while we lament the “aflockalypse”? What are they trying to distract us from? Or is something truly sinister afoot with all of these animal die-offs, and the only thing we’re being shielded from is the truth about WHY?
I do not know the answers, nor do any of us. But I believe we should keep a watchful, skeptical eye on these events. Below is a timeline of the reported animal deaths in reverse order. Many of the events listed were compiled by Natural News. The items marked with an (*) were added by me. Also included are the “official” reasons given for the deaths.
