CHINA - Yesterday Guangzhou TV&#39;s &quot;Today&quot; show featured scenes 300 white cranes that had died suddenly and without reason in the area of the Tianhu Scenic District. The lake was covered in the bodies of the cranes and other birds. Some locals were caring for sick birds for resale later, while some birds had already been prepared for dinner tables. A teacher sighed with emotion as he told the reporter that the die off of the birds in recent days was because the lake was so polluted and it was a sad thing for tourists who came to the area. <em>Source: Recombinomics Commentary</em>
