The horror! Blood-sucking eels rain from the sky in Alaska

Lamprey eels

Most Viewed Articles

(NaturalNews) In what sounds like the plot from a low-budget Hollywood horror flick, there have been numerous reports of blood-sucking "vampire eels" falling from the sky in Fairbanks and other locations in Alaska.

No, I'm not delusional or making this up -- there have been several news stories published recently documenting the strange phenomenon involving the discovery of lamprey eels on the ground, far from any body of water, which have apparently fallen from above.

The lamprey is a species of fish that looks like an eel and possesses five rows of sharp teeth which allow it to attach itself to larger fish and bite through the scales to suck blood from its host.

This frightening-looking creature is not known for being able to fly or rain from the skies, so it's no wonder that these mysterious occurrences are gathering quite a bit of attention.

There does, however, seem to be a simple and rather mundane explanation.

From a report posted at NorthernCalifornian.com:

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has a ready explanation for the lampreys ending up on sidewalks and people's lawns. The officials said that the fish is being dropped from the sky by seagulls.

These hungry birds might be snatching them from their watery spawning grounds. The birds don't always eat their prey on the spot. They sometimes they fly away with their prey in their beaks. They sometimes drop them over land when they lose their grip.

So, the mystery has apparently been solved.

An even more terrifying truth

As terrifying as the thought of a rain of vampire eels may be, there are even more frightening phenomena involving numerous other Northwest and West Coast animal species.

The likely explanation for the mass deaths and various strange ailments affecting numerous species along the North American coastline has far more serious implications for animals and humans alike.

I'm referring to the recent increase in mortality rates and disease seen in humpback whales, orcas, seals, polar bears, starfish and many other species in recent years. Although few authorities are willing to admit it, there is mounting evidence that these occurrences may very well be related to radiation released into the Pacific Ocean from the Fukushima nuclear plant which experienced several meltdowns after a major earthquake in 2011.

From an NBC Los Angeles news report:

It's happening again. Sick sea lion pups, searching for food, are washing ashore at a rate so alarming, rescuers said Thursday, this year is the worst yet.

Record strandings forced researchers to declare an unusual mortality event in 2013. So far this year, rescue centers statewide have taken in more than 1,600 marine mammals, which is three to four times the normal average.

"Things are worse than 2013,
" said Peter Wallerstein, president of Marine Animal Rescue based in Playa Del Rey.

From the CaliforniaGrayWhaleCoalition.org website:

"[T]here has been a rash of dead humpback whales washing-up along central Oregon coast beaches in the wake of the entire West Coast of North America being hit by radioisotopes from the damaged nuclear reactors at Fukushima, Japan."

A quote from Ken Balcomb, executive director of the Center For Whale Research in Friday Harbor, Washington, regarding the 100 percent death rate among orca babies along the West Coast:

We haven't had any survivals in babies for a couple of years. We have had stillborns and newborns die and a number of whales that appear to be pregnant but didn't ultimately produce any calves. It's like zero survival in birth rate here.

These are just a few stories reporting on the unusually high incidences of death and disease among Pacific Ocean marine life since the Fukushima disaster.

It would seem that vampire fish raining from the skies are the least of our worries...
