Less than two weeks into 2011, the animal world was experiencing a phenomenon that was, how should we put this....totally freaky: Blackbirds fell from the sky by the thousands, dead fish washed up on beaches by the millions, and hundreds of turtle doves

The whole issue has something to do on what people are doing to the oceans.

I put the blame entirely on the 1% for their contribution in polluting the earth.

Every reason in the world and beyond to never eat animals...no reason whatsoever to do so...unless we are starving and can not grow crops!

Mass animal deaths happen every minute-millions just in the US alone, it's just that we call it our "food system". It is terrible. Thank you for the post.

Sometimes even weird things are natural but as long as there are people in the world things will never be OK for animals.

All of these massive deaths of animals is tragic and should be a wake-up call to people and politicians all around the globe about climate change and its adverse effects on life! We have to remember that we are dependent on this web of life and our destructive practices are leading to the rising number of animal deaths all around the world and we will suffer the consequences too! No one will escape the ill effects of climate change, not even the super rich who don't want to pay their fair share in taxes and oil and coal companies whose carbon emissions are altering the very fabric of our life support system! We will all be going down together with our politicians at the helm who refused to alter the course just like the captain of the Titanic! The majority of people must awaken from ignorance if they want to save our planet. This is a dire warning and we need now to change the direction we're going in by voting these archaic politicians out of office and demanding change now!

It is so DAM sad that some HUMANS enjoy killing non human life an have the balls to say OH IT'S JUST A CAT A DOG A FISH A WHALE A BIRD SO WHAT WHY ARE YOU GETTING UPSET OVER IT. Animals "DON'T" need humans "HUMANS" need animals plants "DON'T" need humans "HUMANS" need plants like i said in one of my post I DON'T HAVE A STAR SHIP PARKED IN MY BACKYARD TO USE WHEN THE EARTH GO'S TO POT we HUMANS NEED TO WAKE-UP A SMELL THE COFFEE (oh no that a plant) IF HUMANS KILL OFF THE EARTH WE "ALL DIE". =^..^=

I am sorry for profiling HUMANS because there are some HUMANS WHO OPEN THEIR HOMES TO STRAY CATS AN HAVE LOVING HEARTS AN GO OUT OF THERE WAY TO CARE FOR THE ANIMALS AN ALL LIFE ON THIS EARTH once again i am "SORRY" =^..^=
