The mystery continues as large numbers of turtle doves fall dead from the skies over Italy.

To add to the strange nature of this latest case of unexplained animal deaths the doves were found to have blue stains on their beaks. The exact cause of the increasing number of cases is not yet known however some believe that the recent movement of the magnetic north pole towards Russia could be to blame due to it interfering with the birds' innate navigation systems. Conspiracy theorists have also been out in force claiming that the deaths could be due to some form of government experiment while doomsday activists believe it could be a sign that we are approaching the end of the world.

"Thousands of dead turtle doves rained down on roofs and cars in an Italian town in the latest in a growing spate of mass animal deaths across the globe."

On the news here in Florida last night, they said they have been discovering dead pelicans. They are freezing to death because something is stripping the oil off of them. Wonder what it could be? Maybe it's the stuff BP sprayed in the gulf to help clear up the oil? Nah, that's too obvious. In my opinion, these bird and fish deaths are all connected to the BP oil spill. I'm not a conspiracy nut, but I think now that this Corexit stuff is seeping into rivers from the gulf and contaminating stuff. Just my two cents.

Rivers flow downstream to the ocean , something seeping far up stream..Not without a out board ,or fins....

Well yeah, I guess your correct with that. I was also thinking of something along the lines of evaporation then the contaminated water raining down somewhere. Also who knows where it went if it got caught in the gulfstream. Maybe that is why all of the crabs were found dead in Britain.

My most likely reason are the real reasons , the facts...They are here , I am not going to keep posting them because people are either to lazy to read them , or do not want to believe them. Science does know ( not all of them , but most )...Again , I am not going to keep repeating myself. So , I am again leaving this thread , it is a brick wall to me.
