Kazakhstan An aerial survey conducted as part of a national monitoring program earlier this year estimated that the saiga antelope population numbered approximately 250,000 animals prior to this mass die-off, which has therefore halved the total population in about one month.
The animals die within hours of showing symptoms, which include depression, diarrhea and frothing at the mouth.

Not even Ebola or the Black Plague.
Saddam Hussein, in 1988, had a 100% kill rate of 100 thousand Kurdish men, women & children...Not that anyone gave a damn or did anything about it after a few videos and tsk tsks.
What causes these symptoms?
“diarrhea and frothing at the mouth.”
What countries have access to land/air over Kazakhstan?
Biological Weapons test?
...obviously caused by Global Climate Change.
Bring Out Your Dead
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
Depressed antelope? Error in translation?
The other symptoms sound like a neurotoxin, and if they mean “reduced movement” by saying “depression”, then that fits, too.
That’s what I’m thinking, bio weapons test gone awry.
Actually, should the media - or anyone else, actually report this - I wouldn't be at all surprised if the 'Warmists" wouldn't claim this - and the Sheeple swallow it.
Come to think of it - 'Frothing at the mouth" is a symptom displayed by the Warmists and the D-Rats whenever mentioning/confronting GOPers -
they repeat it -
Just a lame attempt at misdirection?
I'm sure someone was out there diagnosing 'depression' in the animals before the dropped over - s/
Awry - or 100% successful?
Must stop antelope farts or they wlll all die.
Time to get them on the YO Ranch in Texas. They have more exotic animals raised for hunting than even exist in some of their natural habitats.
What’s their water source? That would be my first question.
You forgot depression. How can you tell if a herd of antelope are depressed?
Putin comes immediately to mind.
I hope Jim Shockey wasn’t shooting a hunting show in the vicinity.
Good question. I was thinking that it affected a wider area than they originally planned but maybe this WAS the original plan.
I was more interested in how the diagnosis of depression was made.
otherwise it sounds a lot like rabid Obama supporter syndrome
