Thousands of carcasses of dead snow geese dotted the shoreline for at least 20 kilometres near the Nunavut community of Cambridge Bay, Canada.
And nobody knows why!
A massive geese die-off is currently taking place near Long Point in Nunavut, leaving officials baffled.
A resident explained seeing over thousand dead geese for about 20 kilometres of shoreline… too many to even count.
Most of the carcasses were washed up right on the shore, while a couple were located further away from the coast.
Officials are aware of the situation and are following up on the incident and will consider next steps, without mentioning these next steps.
An emeritus professor of wildlife biology and ornithologist at McGill University said it’s likely that the birds died of disease, some kind of avian disease…
Avian cholera? The latest can wipe out hundreds of thousands to a million ducks and geese all in one fell swoop since it is pretty contagious.
And what about these snow geese ingesting a toxic substance?
