Re: sudden animal death
I would call it coincidence.
The only unusual event I can see is the bird event in Arkansas, and unusual events are obligated to happen occasionally. Some internet forumers freak and suddenly every mass animal death on our entire planet is global news, and thus it seems via media impression that mass animal deaths have just exploded globally.
Until anyone has evidence to the contrary of course... (certainly none was provided in any of the articles, forums or conspiracy websites I browsed)
