Oh, deer: Canadian man tackled by deer

It happened on April Fools’ Day, so no one believed him at first, but 25-year-old Cary McCook got run over by a deer.

McCook was dropped off by a coworker in British Columbia, Canada, on April 1 when he saw a deer running straight for him.

He had no time to react, as can be seen in the video. The deer head-butted him, and McCook fell to the ground.

His family and friends finally believed that he was taken down by the deer after he got surveillance footage of the incident from a nearby inn.

McCook is an aspiring rapper in a group named “Reka-Nation,” and he told a Canadian news network that he plans to write a rap song about his encounter.

The carcasses of thousands of sea creatures have mysteriously washed up on the western coast of Nova Scotia.

As many as 20,000 fish, lobsters, starfish, scallops, crabs and other animals have turned up dead at Savory Park, Canadian authorities said.

And they have no idea why. Canada’s Fisheries and Oceans department tweeted images of the massive cross-species graveyard.

Environmental officials are testing the water for pesticides and oxygen levels for possible clues. As a precaution, they’re warning consumers to only buy seafood from authorized vendors.

“Dead fish found on shore should not be collected by general public,” the Fisheries and Oceans department tweeted.

According to the US Geological Survey, a number of factors could contribute to fish kills. While toxic chemical exposure can be one cause, most fish kills are attributed to low concentrations of dissolved oxygen in the water, according to the USGS.

Just this year, mass fish deaths were reported in Florida’s Indian River Lagoon and Hongcheng Lake in Haikou,China.

In Florida, dead fish blanketed the Atlantic coast for miles in March. The deaths were caused by a combination of environmental factors. Warmer waters, increased precipitation and pollutant runoff made way for toxic algae blooms and brown tide, ultimately depleting the water of oxygen.

In China, an estimated 35 tons of fish died at Hongcheng Lake in May. While residents blamed the fish kill on pollution, local authorities attributed the incident to changes in salt levels…..

“The bright light at the right is Jupiter,” he points out. “Later, the aurora took on the more normal appearance with green curtains topped by fringes of red.”

Red auroras are not fully understood. They occur some 300 to 500 km above Earth’s surface, much higher than ordinary green auroras. Some researchers believe the red lights are linked to low energy electrons from the sun, which move too slowly to penetrate deeply into the atmosphere. When such electrons recombine with oxygen ions in the upper atmosphere, red photons are emitted. At present, space weather forecasters cannot predict when this will occur.

There are two types of auroras – Aurora Borealis, or ‘Northern Lights,’ and Aurora Australis, known as ‘Southern Lights.’

Auroras occur when highly charged electrons from the solar wind collide with atoms of oxygen and nitrogen in the earth’s atmosphere at altitudes from 20 to 200 miles above the planet’s surface. The interactions between the charged particles give off light.

Auroral displays appear in many colors: red, yellow, green, blue, and violet.

The color of the aurora depends on which atom is struck, and the altitude of the meeting. The common green hue is caused by colliding oxygen molecules at altitudes of up to 150 miles.
