"It's a horrible scene. They are spread across some six kilometers (four miles) of beach" around the coastal city of Santo Domingo, San Antonio natural history and archeology museum director Jose Luis Brito told UCV radio. Most of the birds are gray petrels, but there are also pelicans, gannets and Guanay cormorants.

Brito accused fishermen of "doing nothing" when birds get caught up in their nets, and leaving them "to drown before throwing the bodies back into the sea." The museum said it would file a complaint to police over the dead birds.

HAARP did this terrible to the pelicans and dolfins, the oil industri uses the HAARP facilities Jicamarca in south America (Peru) to search for oil, they send a lot of energy “down” in to ground, and the listen to the “echo” if there is hidden oil.
(they often spray a lot of "chemtrails" in he area before they are able to use this "ground x-ray (HAARP), and often this cause an earth quake (sometimes small) when they sending all this microwave energy down in the ground)

This has killed a lot of animals around the world, the “oil prospecting”.

Norwegian Statoil is one of the parts amongst other oil companies to blame, who uses Jicamarca HAARP in Peru for oil prospecting projects, and they give the damn in how many animal they will kill or the damages they have done to the people.

Also experiments with high energy weapons and experiments trying to send big amount of data in aimed energy, (sometimes from ARRAY-facilities) this has killed thousands of birds that was hit by this energy waves and beams.
