Animal And Marine Life Die-Offs Around The Globe Baffling Scientists

Starfish, salamanders, antelopes, elk and dogs are all experiencing large die-offs that have scientists baffled.

Ohio State Veterinarian, Dr. Tony Forshey, said the following about the death of the dogs:
Our results indicate that circovirus, alone or in co-infection with other pathogens, might contribute to illness and death in dogs. 
Not all infected dogs died, and the virus has been seen in dogs that appear healthy, indicating that some dogs may have an immunity to the virus. 
Viruses and bacteria that commonly infect just one animal species can evolve and “jump” from that species to another; this process is known as zoonosis.
