In September 2021, the bodies of 63 penguins were found dead on a nearby beach Cape Town, South Africa. Questioned? The bee stings. But since the beginning of April 2022, the penguins have been the victims of a new tragedy. It happens this time AustraliaThe reason for that is still a mystery.
Penguins have been found decapitated in Australia
For the past few weeks, the beaches of the Fleurieu Peninsula in southern Australia have been the scene of a mysterious tragedy: the bodies of about twenty penguins have been found … beheaded. He recalled that this was more than the total number of penguin deaths that occurred in the region in 2021. Defender. So an event that worries the scientific community.
Stephen Hedges, of the University of Flinders, decided to collect the bodies of these animals so that they could be examined by scientists, hoping to find an explanation for these suspicious deaths.
Several tracks were considered following the beheading of several penguins
When the bodies of penguins were found on the beaches, the scientists were able to put their hands on their heads and see the obvious “cuts”. Although human intervention appears to exclude the causes that led to these deaths, other explanations are being considered.
Among them: the impulses of fishing boats. The latter, in fact, may be the cause of these beheadings, as a large number of ships are circling in the area. Stephen Hedges also suggests that animals may have been dragged around boats at a recent tuna fishing competition at Encounter Bay.
The hypothesis of tourism is presented, and the walks of tourists with their dogs on the beaches, as well as fox hunting. Finally, the last theory, though not very definitive: waves, currents and climatic conditions. At this time, no definitive explanation has been given by scientists. As their research continues, more definitive results should be provided within a month.
