That’s right, the United States has received some of the largest die-offs of all and continue to receive multiple mass animal deaths each month. Scientists who are working to find out what is causing these cases are largely clueless.

Here is a list of some of the recent cases in just the United States alone.

  • 31st March 2016 – Thousands of dead jellyfish wash ashore on Hallandale Beach in Florida, America.
  • 8th April 2016 – Dozens of dead birds found along a road in Fairfax County, Virginia, America.
  • 2nd May 2016 – Hundreds of dead fish found in a lake in Florida, America.
  • 3rd May 2016 – Massive fish kill in Lake Thunderbird in Oklahoma, America.
  • 9th May 2016 – 9,000 birds killed by huge hailstorm in Utah, America.
  • 11th May 2016 – Thousands of dead tuna crabs wash ashore on Imperial Beach, California, America.
  • 23rd May 2016 – Massive die off of fish in the waterways of Palm Beach County, Florida, America.

Keep in mind that these are just some of the scenarios that have taken place in America over the last few months. Since 2016 the U.S.A. has seen a massive number of deaths of whales, dolphins, fish, jellyfish, crabs, and even sea turtles.

In some cases Red tide is suggested as being the main cause of the these mass deaths. However, these types of mass die-offs are a fairly new phenomenon, and most areas experiencing these red tides have handled it with few animal deaths in times past.

Check out this amazing recap of die-offs in Chile in the last couple of months. So far in 2016, Chile has suffered mass deaths in nearly every section of marine life. Birds, salmon, mollusks, sardines, turtles, and even whales have been found dead in large numbers. Seeming to all die simultaneously, this is leaving scientists shaking their heads

Here are the most recent headlines coming out of Chile.

  • 30th April 2016 – Millions of dead mollusks found washed up on beaches, ‘a disaster’ in Los Lagos, Chile.
  • 5th May 2016 – UPDATE: 40,000 TONS of Salmon and 8,000 TONS of  Sardines have washed up dead, due to red tide in Chile.
  • 9th May 2016 – 100 dead sea birds found washed up on beaches in El Tabito and Matanzas, Chile.
  • 12th May 2016 – Another 300 TONS of dead Sardines wash up on the south coast of Chile.
  • 13th May 2016 – Masses of dead jellyfish found washed up on beaches on Chiloe Island, Chile.

Crabs

While scientists are still struggling to figure out the cause of these occurrences, many people are beginning to speculate as well.

Some of the most popular theories on the internet include ideas like radiation spreading out across the seas from Fukushima, natural earth processes, unknown viruses, and even God’s Judgement. Most bible scholars commenting on the topic are quoting this verse from Hosea 4, “…the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away”.

Where do you stand concerning these frequently increasing world-wide events?
