Hundreds of fish have been found dead on Ingham Lake, in Emmet County, Iowa.

Thousands of #cattle dead after #storm in #Pilbara, #Australia

Livestock Alert

Tropical Cyclone Veronica delivered much-needed rain to WA pastoralists, but it also had the heart-wrenching effect of big cattle deaths.

Bettini Beef, which runs five cattle stations in the Pilbara, close to Port Hedland, lost at least 1500 cattle, including 1000 breeders.

Stations in Bettini Beef’s portfolio include De Grey, Mallina, Sherlock, Warambie and Pyramid, which received from 130mm to more than 500mm of rain.

Owner Mark Bettini said as well as the deluge of rain there was strong winds and most cattle likely died of hypothermia, but some would have drowned.

Mr Bettini said finding the dead cattle was heartbreaking, and a big clean-up effort was under way which would take some time, with many areas still too wet to get to.

“I would say 1500 dead cattle is a conservative estimate and it is likely more would be found,” he said.

Thousands of dead #fish found in suburban lake in #Brisbane, #Australia

Fish Kill Alert

Residents in a community north of Brisbane are disgusted by the deaths of thousands of fish in their local lake.

Those living near a Beachmere lake first noticed birds swooping before they realised thousands of fish were dead.

They moved to the lakeside town for the views, but for days now the view and smell has been of dead, rotting fish.

About 30 species, big and small, have died in the lake, including mangrove Jack, bream, flathead, herring, and mullet.

Now locals are demanding answers from Moreton Bay Council.

“It’s been very sad to see the fish coming up and gulping for their lives. There were lots of them that didn’t make it,” resident Tracey Warr told 7News.
