Orphaned Baby Bats Get First-Class Care

Video: Orphaned Baby Bats Get First-Class Care

Dr. Becker:

Not big on bats?  This might change your mind!

These little bat babies are irresistible!

The wonderful lady in the video looks after hundreds of orphaned baby bats and rears them until they can be released into the wild. For more info on the work of the Australian bat clinic & wildlife trauma centre go here: australianbatclinic.com.au/

If you’re a member of the public, remember never to touch or approach a bat unless you are a registered carer/rescuer and you are vaccinated. Wild bats do not like to be approached as they may see you as a potential predator.

First dead birds, then dead fish … now crickets

PORT ALLEN, La. — A virus has killed millions of crickets raised to feed pet reptiles and those kept in zoos.

The cricket paralysis virus has disrupted supplies to pet shops across North America as a handful of operators have seen millions of their insects killed.

Some operations have gone bankrupt and others have closed indefinitely until they can rid their facilities of the virus.

Cricket farms started in the 1940s as a source of fish bait, but the bulk of sales now are to pet supply companies, reptile owners and zoos, although people also eat some.

Most U.S. farms are in the South, but suppliers from Pennsylvania to California also raise crickets.

The virus had swept through European cricket farms in 2002. It was first noticed in 2009 in the U.S. and Canada.

The virus marks the latest in a recent series of mass animal deaths.

Blackbirds fell out of the sky on New Year’s Eve in Arkansas. In the days that followed, 2 million fish died in the Chesapeake Bay, 150 tons of red tilapia in Vietnam, 40,000 crabs in Britain and other places across the world.

However, biologists say these mass die-offs happen all the time and usually are unrelated.

Federal records show they happen on average every other day somewhere in North America.

In the past eight months, the U.S. Geological Survey’s National Wildlife Health Center has logged 95 mass wildlife die-offs in North America and that’s probably a dramatic undercount, officials say.

The list includes:

  • 900 some turkey vultures that seemed to drown and starve in the Florida Keys.
  • 4,300 ducks killed by parasites in Minnesota.
  • 1,500 salamanders done in by a virus in Idaho.
  • 2,000 bats that died of rabies in Texas.
  • And the still mysterious death of 2,750 sea birds in California.

Officials blamed the deaths of 5,000 red-winged blackbirds in Beebe, Ark., on New Year’s Eve fireworks.

Experts say the loud cracks and booms likely sent the birds into such a tizzy that they crashed into homes, cars and each other before plummeting to their deaths.

The Associated Press and Reuters contributed to this report.

I was listening to Dr. Waterman last evening  with whistleblower Aaron McCollumand.  Below are my notes for you to read and decide for yourself.  This is is a little more political than I usually post here, but thought is was information we should all ponder and then decide for ourselves.

From the Waterman files blog talk radio (my notes). The guest was Aaron – a whistleblower. Listen to the first hour for his background info.

Celente says there are no more tricks financially – they have spend $38 T bailing out the banks.

Strange things are happening with the environment, animals, birds, fish, etc.
The problems manifested in the first 6 months and then there is the event – the festival of enlightenment (see first hour for this info) to "save" people.

There have been several rumors about a pandemic on the Internet regarding the fish, birds, and other animals that are dying around the world.
Yesterday saw an article about seals in UK with deep corkscrew cuts from head down.

Historically this has been recorded by mariners with the same image – before submarines.

I am not ruling out HAARP – haven’t done enough research but I will be contacting Brooks Agnew who is knowledgeable.

There was a rumor about mustard gas and phosgene saying that these were dispersed through chem trail spraying and there were reports that the Chinese knew it was it phosgene gas.

There was a report about blue ink on the birds which was an  "indicator of gas poisoning".

Phosgene gas is volatile. It can be created by using refrigerant – if heated becomes phosgene gas.

Both phosgene and mustard gas are not prejudice – not one species of bird or fish. In a high concentration if it rains down and gets into stream – it will kill everything. In Arkansas – why weren’t the people affected? The people smelled nothing.

The military has been developing biological weapons – Plum Island , Dolce mountain and elsewhere.

There is a weapon which is not nuclear, but it could be labeled as a dirty bomb – biological chemical weapon.

Imagine a missile – dropped at high altitude – 50,000 to 75 k range – ignites in upper atmosphere and biological is introduced and attacks targets – certain genomes and otherwise known as  ethic bomb certain species of birds or fish Taking this to another level,  what if it were  launched over populated area  and  people of African descent or Chinese descent  were the target?

This is a theory that needs research, but this could be beta test.
Animals that have been targeted are not endangered, so there was no problem with targeting these animals.

10 yrs ago – database of frequencies for all kinds of things. Microbes & viruses have identities.

In regards to the genome project -they aren’t telling you that they have  also databased the frequency for the DNA.

It could not be controlled biologically released or microbial form – frequency weapon – targeting what he is talking about Do you know they have patents on the parts of the genome 20% of your DNA  is owned by someone else on my webpage – 3d form thewatermanfiles.com

There is another rumor other than the phosgene  that  corexit  was the cause. Corexit is  not discriminatory and would not kill only certain species. However, there has been a less publicized idea of a synthetic bacteria.
The bacteria is called synthia created by man – computer programmed.  Synthetic biology – organizations have taken it – BP and Exon Mobile funded and looked into this.

3 players – Synthetics Genomics, Inc, Synthetics Genomics Vaccines, Inc – Live Technologies and  J. Craig Vettner Institute who created a synthetic cell – nothing more than nano technology Imagine you have cancer – they take a syringe and put synthia to you taken sample of your tumor & duplicate it and synthia attacks it  – replicate it – those cells die off – now those cells – smart cells – inject to you – your cancer goes away and synthia cells take place of cancer cells sounds like a good idea, but when you  privatize institute – military drools – we are interested – it becomes a weapon.

On the website – cell can be introduced into anything biological – fruit, vegetables, humans, synthia can take over Waterman – Remember Moche – biological – VW – swat teams – shot gas in his car – Synthia- programmed to counter gas attack – get a little fresh air – two canisters in a VW – didn’t bother him at all Synthia – full name – biological self replicating biological cell
This is nothing more than a biocybernetic version of smart dust -Darpha created – smart dust.

I would not rule this out – imagine – plane -a  truck showed up disguised  as a Terminix truck and fumigate building and instead of chemicals it is a neutral agent such as smart dust to monitor all movement and frequencies – use synthia in a plane over a location – Synthia – introduced into cells – but not controlled in lab – it kills it.

Waterman:

We don’t know how these will morph. Organisms have a natural tendency to morph and adapt to environment.

Do you think this is accidental? no

Are these events around the world connected?  yes

There is no chance because of mini ice age, because of glaciation. Our gov’t has not made a public statement addressing the issue of ice age

We are not seeing nature creating an event.  It is not normal for this to be occurring.

Aaron:

From what I know and was a part of, I believe it is man made on some level.  Maybe got out of control or not precisely executed or there were side effects.

This global beta test is likely the last thing on the check off list of the elites.
Waterman – many things being researched and many things being talked about – right now – progressively worse – faster.

If you are headed toward a cliff – does it matter if you are going slow or fast?  You are still going off the cliff.

Aaron – saying that an old tiger – most dangerous when he is near death – empires rise and fall.

It is in plain sight the elite are crashing. They are  losing control of the people with riots all over the world.

The elites know their power is crumbling and  they want control of the people.

If a king going to be killed – he is going to burn his castle and take it with him.

What we are seeing is the elite throwing out everything they have – an act of desperation.

This is one phase of an operation with many fronts to it. In 6 months you will feel it is more like a nightmare.

Animals just want to have fun, survey finds…

From tickling to playing catch, animals do some things simply for enjoyment

Cow Takes Time To Smell the Flowers

A cow takes time to smell the flowers at the Farm Sanctuary, an organization that rescues abused/neglected farmed animals. A new survey suggests that animals experience happiness for happiness’ sake. 

From tickling to playing catch, animals engage in certain behaviors just for fun, even enjoying sensations that are unknown to humans, concludes an extensive new survey on pleasure in the animal kingdom.  

The findings, published in the latest Applied Animal Behavior Science, hold moral significance, argues author Jonathan Balcombe. He believes scientists, conservationists and other animal rights activists should not overlook animal joy. 

“The capacity for pleasure means that an animal’s life has intrinsic value, that is, value to the individual independent of his or her value to anyone else, including humans,” Balcombe, a senior research scientist for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, explained to Discovery News. 

He determined animals experience happiness for happiness’ sake related to play, food, touch and sex. Observations of herring gulls in Virginia, for example, found these birds play “drop-catch,” tossing clams and other small, hard objects as though they were baseballs, just for pure enjoyment

In terms of food, green iguanas go to great lengths to find fresh, leafy lettuce, even when supplied with ample amounts of more nutritious reptile chow. Studies on other animals indicate some foods, independent of their nutrition levels, cause animals to release pleasure-producing opioids in their bodies. Language-trained apes and parrots have even told their owners they loved or hated certain edibles. 

Pleasure itself can be the end-all reward, as “regardless of the evolutionary benefits of a behavior,” he said, “animals often do things because they are rewarding.”  

“I doubt that a monkey thinks, ‘If I eat this fig it will sustain me,’ but rather, ‘Ooh, yummy, a delicious fig!’” added Balcombe, whose book “Exultant Ark: A Pictorial Tour of Animal Pleasures” is scheduled for release next year.  

Regarding touch, a human might go to a spa for a mud bath and massage, but nature creates its own “spas” for hippopotamuses (hippopotami… for the record) at freshwater springs in Kenya. There, wallowing hippos gather, moving in and out of “cleaning stations” where multiple fish species congregate to nibble hippo parasites, loose skin, fungal growths and more.  

The hippos “deliberately splay their toes, spread their legs and hold their mouths open,” often becoming “so relaxed during these spa treatments that they would sometimes fall asleep,” Balcombe recounted.  

Sex isn’t just for procreation, the paper further suggests.  

“Oral sex that appears purely for pleasure has been documented in goats, hyenas, various primates, manatees, bats and sheep,” said Balcombe, who added that homosexuality is practiced within at least 300 species. Masturbation, even among certain birds, has also been noted.  

Animals also may experience pleasures that go beyond human senses. Electric fish seem to enjoy giving each other stimulating charges, for example, while dolphins use “low-pitched buzzing clicks” near their genital areas, which “appears to be a way of giving pleasure to another.”  

Martin Stephens, vice president of Animal Research Issues at The Humane Society of the United States, told Discovery News that discussions of animal pleasure are often left out of science, with the emphasis instead going to negative experiences, like pain and stress. The two extremes of the feeling spectrum shouldn’t be mutually exclusive, however.
