You're driving down the road and birds begin to fall from the sky. Not just one or two but dozens. Hundreds.
In backyards, parks and playgrounds you see other dead wildlife. Scores of dead squirrels, possums and raccoons litter the ground. News reports tell you dead alligators and turtles are being found in significant numbers. Even a few Florida panthers are turning up dead.
It would be regarded, rightly, as a terrifying catastrophe. And yet something very similar is already happening here in Florida.
