What are the chances that all these dead creatures were dumped into the oceans already dead? I'm thinking these were lab experiment crabs, fish, birds. The deaths were planned.

Considering that they're mysteriously able to come up with a "body count" on short notice, especially such a large count, does raise suspicions. I mean, who's going to go out and count 40,000 dead crabs?

I'm sure that the figure of 40,000 was only an estimate. The scientists probably made a quick estimate of the body count based on the area covered with dead animals, and the average number of dead animals per square meter. The reporter may have also simplified the actual findings (which might have sounded something like "approx. 38,750 crabs +/- 2,500").

Trust reporters to mangle the facts.

Why not 39,798?

If they had said 7 trucks loads of dead crabs, or 400lbs were removed, I'd be more apt to believe that this was a natural occurrence.
