First it was birds dying by the thousands and then it was fish dying by the ton. Now, it seems 200 cows in Portage County have died. We have heard bizarre reasons about what caused the dead birds and dead fish and are now hearing from the Portage County Sheriff’s Department that the cows in Ohio died due to a virus that causes respiratory problems. What’s amazing is that nobody from the scientific community knows why 200 cows died, but the sheriff’s department does! Perhaps if people start dying mysteriously, the government will take the death of millions of animals more seriously.

We are stupid. We must be. Government officials around the world think so.
Romanian officials are now stating that dozens of dead birds in their country died from drinking too much. In the United States, birds must be over 21 to drink. Seriously, what are Romanian birds finding so thirst quenching that they could possibly drink themselves to death? Rather, what are Romanian officials thinking we are drinking to believe such a stupid excuse for the odd death of birds?
Birds and fish have been dying en mass, under seemingly odd circumstances, in a short period of time and throughout the world. Perhaps governments should begin to take the deaths seriously and truly investigate why these animals are dying. Or do they need humans to drop dead by the thousands to begin taking it seriously?
The official responses to mass deaths of birds and fish become more laughable as time passes. Italian investigators are “confident” that 1,000 dead birds “ate themselves to death.” We find this truly unbelievable because nature prohibits the vast majority of animals from over-eating. Most animals (humans aside) eat only what their body needs to function. If indeed these birds ate themselves to death, what sparked their over-eating? They didn’t just wake up and decide to commit suicide by eating too much. Frankly, if an animal could die so easily from eating too much; the American population should be 100 million smaller. More nonsense excuses, but at least officials backed off from their “fireworks killed the animals” statements.
