40,000 dead crabs washed up on Kent coastline

After the 1,000 dead birds, here we are with 40 times the toll this time, crabs. More than 40,000 Devil crabs were found along beaches along with dead starfish, lobsters, sponges and anemones.

Experts believe the crabs died from hypothermia after the UK’s coldest December in 120 years.The crab deaths are the latest in a series of mass animal deaths all around the world.

Apart from the dead birds we have reported, there have been also thousands of dead fish which have been found floating in a creek, Florida. While in Texas 200 American Coots were discovered dead. 

Same situation in a different country. In Brazil, 100 tons of sardine, catfish and croakers have been wash up dead near Parangua.

In Sweden, something like 50 birds have been found dead in a street in the city of Falkoping.

Back in the UK, bookies are taking bets on which country will face the next animal 'Apocalypse'.
