The issue for me, is which stories to report on. Unusual wildlife deaths seems like the new 'normal'.

  • Mysterious elk deaths plague New Mexico "Officials with the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish are puzzling over the mysterious deaths of more than 100 elk, apparently all within a 24-hour period, in rural New Mexico. The elk were found Aug. 27 on a 75,000-acre ranch north of the city of Las Vegas. Livestock deaths, by themselves, are not unusual — there are many things that can fell large animals, including predators, poachers, a natural or man-made toxin, disease, drought, heat, starvation, and even lightning." http://www.livescience.com/39522-mysterious-elk-deaths-plague-new-mexic… Massive starfish die off Canada "The waters off British Columbia, Canada, are littered with dead starfish, and researchers have no idea what’s causing the deaths..." http://newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2013/09/09/massive-starfish-die…

I'm noticing an insane amount of fish die offs all over the world. I'll gather together all of the stories and post again. It's rather overwhelming. There are so many of them that it feels apocalyptic. :(
