This is true. For us New Hampshirens, From time to time we'll see Snowy Owls. NH is on the bottom range of the Snowy Owl, quite uncommon here. There main food up north is the Arctic Lemming. Arctic Lemmings, like all animal species, start from little and go up and up and up, until a disaster of some sort (disease mainly) wipes them out, and it starts over. During the years where there is little Lemmings, the Snowy Owl will come down. More food.
Same thing happened out west a few years ago. There was so many of this certain species of rabbit, major overabundance. They were delaying flights cause they were all over the runway. Airport officials paid
hunters tio get them. Which didn't do much.
The next winter, the species was barely there. Biologists and scientists discovered taht during hibernation and such, a disease much like the bubonic plague for rabbits, wiped most of them out.
The same thing will happen with humans. There are already too many of us, and if we don't "figure it out", a PANdemic (25 million deaths or more) on epic proportions will happen. Depressing but true.
And on to the weakfish thing, its both.
Had to teach you all something today
(now you know why I want to be a biologist)
