The young, 20-foot-long Humpback Whale washed up near Oceano Dunes Monday night.
A Humpback Whale washed up Monday night on the Central Coast, leading to fascination— and concern over what killed it.

"It's very sad to see the animals die... especially not knowing if there was something we could do to help them," said Julie Morgan, who lives in Oceano.

While the death of any animal is a natural occurrence, the death of a whale is not something people see every day.

Morgan says she saw the young Humpback's carcass floating in the water off-shore Monday afternoon.

Gangadharaiah, the father of 11-year-old Thejaswini, who succumbed to injuries after being attacked by a pack of stray dogs near Doddakere in Kunigal, Tumakuru district on Sunday, is inconsolable.

"My daughter had asked me to buy a new jeans pant and a shirt for her for the Gowri festival, but even before I bought the clothes for her, she left us," he said on Monday, still in shock.

Thejaswini's mother, Gangamma, is in no better state. She fell unconscious after the incident and was shifted to Kunigal taluk government hospital where she is being given intravenous fluids, Mr. Gangadharaiah told The Hindu.

'End of days' signaled by birth of red heifer in Israel (thanks to fanatical breeding program) say Hebrew scholars

If proven to be the true, unblemished red heifer of prophecy it could signal the end of days
Rabbinical scholars are treating the birth of an entirely red heifer in Israel as a potential omen for the rebuilding of the Third Temple. Evangelical Christians, citing Biblical prophecy, believe it means the end of days is nigh.

If proven to be the cow of prophecy, the young calf will be the first true red heifer born in 2,000 years, an event that is meant to foreshadow the construction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem, heralding the arrival of the Jewish Messiah. Evangelical Christian theologians also believe the construction of the Third Temple will lead to Judgement Day.

The Temple Institute announced the birth via YouTube adding that the auspicious calf "brings the promise of reinstating Biblical purity to the world." The Institute claims to be "dedicated to every aspect of the Holy Temple of Jerusalem, and the central role it fulfilled, and will once again fulfill, in the spiritual well-being of both Israel and all the nations of the world."

Comment: Considering how much of organized religion has been proven to be a distorted version of events that occurred in the past, we can safely assume that no Jewish Messiah will be paying us a visit anytime soon: Judaism and Christianity - Two Thousand Years of Lies - 60 Years of State Terrorism

Comment: Although it is true that ancient cultures recognized unusual events in the animal world as portents - and their superstitions may have some basis in reality - there are actually many, many more significant - and real - signs that our world is entering a time of great change: For more, check out SOTTs' monthly documentary: SOTT Earth Changes Summary - July 2018: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium announced that all three whales they rescued after being beached have died.

According to Mote's Facebook page, after rescuing two pygmy killer whales off Sandy Key in Clearwater on August 29, they rescued a melon-headed whale on September 4 that was found beached alive on Longboat Key.

"Lightning," one of the two pygmy killer whales, passed away around 9 a.m. on September 5.

Mote said while Lightning's specific cause of death is unknown she repeatedly struggled to swim on her own, showed no interest in food, and was being treated for pneumonia, parasites known as nasotrema, and gastric issues. She was the sickest of the three whales.

Peajack, a female humpback whale, was found dead off the coast of Brier Island, N.S., on Friday. The Marine Animal Response society said the ballooning in is the tongue of the animal, which becomes swollen in the decomposition process.
A dead humpback whale was found off the coast of Brier Island, N.S., in the Bay of Fundy on Friday.

The breeding female whale, Peajack, was well-known to locals and was identified by Brier Island Whale and Seabird Cruises, said the Marine Animal Response Society.

MARS did not confirm the cause of the whale's death.

The chief naturalist with the whale cruise company, Shelley Lonergan, said she has been seeing Peajack in the area since 1995.

Peajack had had two calves since then, Lonergan said.

Photos show unexplained cattle mutilation in Australia - Dead cows found in paddock with udders, ears and tongues removed

cattle mutilation
A north Queensland couple has been left baffled by a bizarre finding on their property, which seems like something straight from a horror film.

Graziers Mick and Judy Cook were working on their property in Cloverly, north-west of Mackay, when Mr Cook noticed a dead cow carcass which appeared to have had its body mutilated, with its entire udder, ears and tongue removed.

Warning: This story contains images and content that some readers may find disturbing.

"It was like it had been surgically removed, I certainly couldn't do as neat a job with a very sharp knife, and it definitely wasn't an animal," Mr Cook said.

"I thought at first it might have been poisoned, but then I got closer ... I saw the body parts missing, there was no blood, even where the parts had been removed, no sign of struggle, just dead.

Comment: There's also the unexplained cases of 1,600 people who went missing from public lands without a trace: And for a possible explanation on the animal mutilation phenomena, see: Global animal mutilations still defies explanation

Woman dies of heart attack while being mauled by pit bull terrier in Proctor, Missouri


Authorities later killed the animal

A woman died of a heart attack Saturday in Morgan County after being attacked by a dog.

Sheriff Norman Dills said the death happened in the Proctor area when a 61-year-old woman was attacked by a dog she was caring for and suffered the fatal heart attack. The dog attacked a man who came to check on the 61-year-old woman and he had to be taken to a hospital to have surgery for the wounds, Dills said.

He had been released from the hospital by Wednesday, Dillon said.

The incident took place inside a home and the dog, a pit bull that was acting aggressively when first responders arrived, was killed by authorities, Dills said.


'They've never been this hungry': Farmers warned of wild animal attacks as feral pigs and wild dogs starve during record drought in Australia

Farmers have been warned they could suffer attack from feral pigs, wild boars, foxes and dingoes that are desperate for food because of the drought

Farmers have been warned they could suffer attack from feral pigs, wild boars, foxes and dingoes that are desperate for food because of the drought
Farmers have been warned their livestock is being attacked by feral pigs, wild boars, foxes and dingoes as the wild animals are starved by the drought.

Central Tablelands Local Land Services (CTLLS) in is offering services for farmers in and around the NSW towns of Oberon, Mudgee and Cowra to tackle the predators as spring begins.

Senior biosecurity officer Alistair Gordon-Smith said it's important that farmers start planning their bait before the mating season kicks off.

'It's been a dry, hard winter and feral pigs and wild dogs are looking for food for spring litters of piglets and pups,' he said.

'Newborn calves and lambs are extremely vulnerable to pest predators, so it's timely for landholders to start planning their baiting regime now.'

Charges for the service have also been dropped to assist all farmers with accessing bait-handling certification.
