Google Maps Tracks Mass Animal Deaths

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

Most of us have by now heard about the thousands of blackbirds that dropped out of the sky in Arkansas on New Years Eve. But those tragic deaths only tell a part of the story. Multiple other mass deaths have happened in the last month. Species that have been effected include various types of fish, penguins, blackbirds, pelicans, doves, bats, starfish, jellyfish and manatees.

An anonymous Google user created a Google Map tracking the events and pinpointing them. Reading the articles is difficult, but seeing them all plotted on the map shows the reality of the situation.

Although the map only plots recent incidents, the mass deaths are not new. Nor are they adequately explained by the scientific community. Experts say that these deaths are not unusual and that they are not linked — but no animals die in unison for no reason. The experts blame some deaths on fireworks, others on cold weather, perhaps some others on pollution. The truth is, no one knows why those blackbirds fell out of the sky. These are all just best guesses.
