BEIJING (AP) — Chinese officials say they have fished out 900 dead pigs from a Shanghai river that is a water source for city residents.
Officials are investigating where the pigs came from. A statement posted Saturday on the city’s Agriculture Committee’s website says they haven’t found any evidence that the pigs were dumped into the river or of any animal epidemic.
The statement says the city and Songjiang district governments started retrieving the pigs on Friday night. By late Saturday afternoon they had recovered and disposed of more than 900.
The statement says the water and environmental protection bureaus are ramping up monitoring of the river’s water quality.

10-30,000 Olive Ridleys are fatally caught in fishing nets every year
Dead turtles aren’t a new story. Every breeding season, from November to May, the media reports scores of dead Olive Ridleys scattered along the eastern coast, particularly at the mass nesting sites of Odisha. But what makes this carnage a vulgar certainty year after year is a damning story that needs to be told.

Dead whale found in Afono Sat, 03/02/2013 – 9:16am
A dead whale has been found in Afono, and may be a new species in our waters.
Alden Tagarino, a wildlife biologist for the Department of Marine and Wildlife Resources told Samoa News that the dead whale was stranded on the beach adjacent to the school in Afono, and was found on Monday, Feb. 25
Officer Maiava of the DPS Marine Patrol Division discovered the dead whale at 7 p.m and it was buried the next day at 11:30 a.m. on land owned by Vaalele Mao.
Dr. Kristi West of Hawaii Pacific University arrived in the territory Monday night to conduct a full necropsy, working hand in hand with DMWR. The whale was exhumed on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 3 p.m. and was taken to the landfill to undergo a full necropsy that was completed at 7:45 p.m.
According to Tagarino, it was a female whale, approximately 12 feet long, and a fetus was discovered in the whale, meaning the whale was pregnant when it died. Plastic bottle caps, wood, fruits/nuts, squid beaks, fish eyes, and a fish skull were found in the dead whale’s stomach.
Photographs of the dead mammal have been sent to the Stranding Network of the Pacific Region, of which American Samoa is a signatory, and genetic samples will be sent to the Southwest Fisheries Science Center in La Jolla, California once the appropriate paperwork, such as permits and customs forms, are completed and ready.
The samples are expected to be on their way to the mainland on next week’s Hawaiian Air flight.
Tagarino said this is possibly a new species for American Samoa, adding that identification of the mammal was up to the genus level only (Mesoplodon) but the exact species will not be confirmed until genetic samples are processed and the results are sent back, a process that can take 2-3 weeks.
DMWR has no further information yet on the possible cause of death.
“We will hopefully have a better idea once the lab work is done on the samples taken,” Tagarino said. He thanked DMWR Staff Hanipale Hanipale and Saia Lavatai of the Enforcement Division; Ailao Tualaulelei and Ace Mauga of the Wlidlife Division; Afa Uikirifi and Fale Tuilagi of the Fisheries Division; and DMWR Director Dr Ruth Matagi-Tofiga for their assistance and support.

RALATI – The cadavers of at least one hundred dead horses have been discovered in a Romanian lake nearby the city of Galati, according to Romanian news station Antena 3
The horses were discovered by the German animal protection services ‘Vier Pfoten’ – four paws – in conjunction with the Romanian Veterinarian Services.
Vier Pfoten believes the horses were slaughtered and their meat was illegally mixed in with beef products – currently a major scandal in many European countries.
People living around the lake had called in journalists after finding predominantly horse heads and legs laying near the edge of the lake.
Further investigation by local police and firemen discovered more horse parts. Complete carcasses of horses that had been killed only recently were found inside the lake.
Remarkably, there is no slaughterhouse in the vicinity of the lake.
The ongoing horse meat scandal in Europe lead to investigators stumbling upon a large slaughter house in central Romania last week, that purchased large quantities of horse meat and resold it as beef.
Vier Pfoten says that everywhere in Romania people are busy gathering horses, put them in a stable and when the time is right, slaughter them and sell their meat.
A few days ago, investigators found bones and skulls from horses near a small town in a remote area in Romania. That area does not have a registered slaughter house as well, making police stipulate that the bones and skulls were dumped by an illegal slaughter house.
In most of Europe the horse meat scandal is ongoing. Ikea, the furniture manufacturing giant, just recently pulled all its meatballs from the shelves after an investigation proved the beef balls had been mixed with horse meat illegally.

Massive fish kills keep Officials working overtime to keep beaches fish-free, Fort Myers, Florida *VIDEO*
osted: Feb 26, 2013
By George Solis, Reporter
FORT MYERS BEACH, FL – Thousands of dead fish are littering some of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. For weeks we’ve seen the effects of red tide, but this is one of the worst we’ve seen in some time. With spring break and the height of tourism season just around the corner, it’s a race to clean up.
Lee County Visitor and Convention Bureau officials say they’re hoping Mother Nature lends a helping hand, but they’re also putting in extra hours—and extra people—to do something they typically don’t.
“Cleaning it up in daylight hours, bringing on extra staff to make sure that’s taken care of,” said Tamara Pigott of Lee County Visitor and Convention Bureau.
Fish kills are numbering in the thousands and an offshore bloom scientists say is 120 miles long.
“The last couple of days, it’s been like the kill of the day,” said Kevin Roalson of Sanibel Island.
Witnesses say fish kills are ranging in type and size.
“Literally, this thing was probably 24-30 inches long. It was big, it was massive,” Roalson said.
This afternoon’s showers may have kept beachgoers at bay on Fort Myers Beach this afternoon, but not the birds or the dead fish they were snacking on.
Apart from manual labor, officials are counting on some help from Mother Nature they admit may not be welcomed by all.
“We’re all looking for a little bit of cold weather I know our local residents and our visitors don’t want to hear anything about cold weather, but typically cold weather will break up a red tide,” Pigott said.
While in places like Sanibel scientists are studying the blooms effects, on Fort Myers Beach clean up efforts are geared more towards safety, to keep barefoot people from getting injured from the fish on land.
As for the weather, experts are hoping forecasted easterly winds also lessen the bloom’s effect on beaches.

Muslim CIA Chief Brennan Rufuses to Take Oath Of Office With Bible.
When Obama security adviser John Brennan was sworn into office as chief of the Central Intelligence Agency, he put his hand not on a Bible, but on a copy of the Constitution – before it included the Bill of Rights.
The White House said of the controversial appointee, whose position in office was filibustered by Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul this week for nearly 13 hours, “Brennan was sworn in with his hand on an original draft of the Constitution, dating from 1787, which has George Washington’s personal handwriting and annotations on it.”
The report also included an update from the emptywheel.net blog, which noted the absence of the Bill of Rights.
“When Brennan vowed to protect and defend the Constitution, he was swearing on one that did not include the First, Fourth, Fifth, or Sixth Amendments – or any of the other amendments now included in our Constitution,” the report said. “The Bill of Rights did not become part of our Constitution until 1791, four years after the Constitution that Brennan took his oath on.”
Wrote the blogger, “These vows always carry a great deal of symbolism. And whether he meant to invoke this symbolism or not, the moment at which Brennan took over the CIA happened to exclude (in symbolic form, though presumably not legally) the key limits on governmental power that protect American citizens.”
Olivier Knox, at Yahoo.com, pointed out that symbolism was part of the event.
“Hours after CIA Director John Brennan took the oath of office – behind closed doors, far away from the press, perhaps befitting his status as America’s top spy – the White House took pains to emphasize the symbolism,” he wrote.
“‘There’s one piece of this that I wanted to note for you,’ spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at their daily briefing. ‘Director Brennan was sworn in with his hand on an original draft of the Constitution that had George Washington’s personal handwriting and annotations on it, dating from 1787.’”
The report said Earnest confirmed Brennan had asked for a document from the National Archives “because he wanted to reaffirm his commitment to the rule of law as he took the oath of office.”
Knox also wrote about the absence of the Bill of Rights in the document.
“That means: No freedom of speech and of the press, no right to bear arms, no Fourth Amendment ban on ‘unreasonable searches and seizures,’ and no right to a jury trial,” the report said.
Paul had been filibustering Brennan’s nomination because the Obama administration had made statements that the president might have the authority to order lethal drone strikes on Americans on U.S. soil. Brennan worked with Obama’s overseas drone program, which has killed hundreds, while security adviser.
Attorney General Eric Holder told Paul in response to a question from the senator that the U.S. never has carried out a drone strike against a U.S. citizen on American soil and it would be “unlikely.”
However, Holder also said he could not rule it out entirely.
“It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the president to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States,” Holder’s letter said.
He confirmed Obama “has the power to authorize lethal force, such as a drone strike, against a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil, and without trial.”
In the later letter to Paul, after the filibuster, Holder said, “It has come to my attention that you have now asked an additional question: ‘Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil?’ The answer to that question is no.”
Another angle on why Brennan might not have wanted to swear his oath on the Bible relates to a shocking report by one of the FBI’s former top experts on Islam, w…
As WND reported, former FBI Islam expert John Guandolo has long warned that the federal government is being infiltrated by members of the radical Muslim Brotherhood. But Guandolo now warns that by appointing Brennan to CIA director, Obama has not only chosen a man “naïve” to these infiltrations, but also picked a candidate who is himself a Muslim.
“Mr. Brennan did convert to Islam when he served in an official capacity on the behalf of the United States in Saudi Arabia,” Guandolo told interviewer and radio host Tom Trento.
“That fact alone is not what is most disturbing,” Guandolo continued. “His conversion to Islam was the culmination of a counterintelligence operation against him to recruit him. The fact that foreign intelligence service operatives recruited Mr. Brennan when he was in a very sensitive and senior U.S. government position in a foreign country means that he either [is] a traitor … [or] he has the inability to discern and understand how to walk in those kinds of environments, which makes him completely unfit to the be the director of Central Intelligence.”
Brennan did indeed serve as CIA station chief in Riyadh in the 1990s and he has held the official title of Deputy National Security Adviser for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. On Jan. 7, Obama nominated Brennan as the next director of the CIA.
“Are you kidding me?” Trento balked at Guandolo’s allegations. “The head of the CIA is a Muslim? For real? … Are you sure?”
“Yes I am,” Guandolo asserted. “The facts of the matter are confirmed by U.S. government officials who were also in Saudi Arabia at the time that John Brennan was serving there and have direct knowledge. These are men who work in very trusted positions, they were direct witnesses to his growing relationship with the individuals who worked for the Saudi government and others and they witnessed his conversion to Islam.”
A former Marine and combat veteran, Guandolo worked for eight years in the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division as a “subject matter expert” in the Muslim Brotherhood and the global spread of Islamism. Guandolo boasts he created the Bureau’s first counterterrorism training/education program and twice received United States Attorney’s Awards for investigative intelligence.
Guandolo is also one of the authors of the Center for Security Policy’s Team B II report, “Shariah: The Threat to America.”
“My contention is that [Brennan] is wholly unfit for government service in any national security capacity, and that would specifically make him unfit to be the director of Central Intelligence,” Guandolo told Trento.
Guandolo then broke down a three-part argument against Brennan’s confirmation.
“The first is he has interwoven his life professionally and personally with individuals that we know are terrorists,” Guandolo asserted. “He has overseen and approved and encouraged others to bring known leaders of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood into the government in positions to advise the U.S. government on counterterrorism strategy as well as the overall ‘war on terror.’”
Second, Guandolo asserted, Brennan has “proven through his own comments publicly that he is clueless and grossly ignorant of al-Qaida’s strategy.
“Third and finally, which some would say is most disturbing, is Mr. Brennan did convert to Islam,” Guandolo said, but stressed, “I think the [larger] news is that that conversion is the culmination of the work of people in Saudi Arabia who worked for the Saudi government – and that makes John Brennan just naïve, foolish, dangerously ignorant and totally unfit for this position.
“That in and of itself, again, shouldn’t be shocking to people,” Guandolo continued. “Mr. Brennan, they have the clip where he specifically says during a public address … he said during that speech that he has learned and gets his understanding and his ‘worldview’ in large part from Islam. It shouldn’t be a large leap to imagine he’s converted to Islam.”
