(NaturalNews) The carcasses of three more marine mammals washed up on the shores of San Francisco beaches July 7, 2015. No one is sure what killed the sea creatures; however, the massive amounts of radiation leaking into the ocean from the Fukushima power plant over the past four years may bear some responsibility.
Joey DeRuy was walking along the beach Monday when he stumbled across a dead sea lion. Unperturbed, he kept walking until he came across an even bigger dead elephant seal just minutes later.
By the end of the day, there were three dead sea creatures lying on San Francisco’s coast: a dolphin, a sea lion pup and an elephant seal.

This isn’t the first time the Grim Reaper has visited the shores of San Francisco’s coast. Approximately six dead whales have washed onto Bay Area shores within a five-week period this year. In addition, for the past four years, an alarming number of starved sea lion pups have littered Southern California’s shores. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) described this stranding as an “Unusual Mortality Event,” and animal shelters have reached critical capacity.
