Herd of dead cows next to a drilling site

19 head of cattle die near north La. gas well

SPRING RIDGE, La. — Nineteen cattle have died in in northwest Louisiana and investigators collected water samples Wednesday to determine if pollutants from a nearby natural gas well might have tainted their pastureland, a state environmental official said.

“It looks like some type of production fluid has run offsite and the cows got into it, ingested it,” said Otis Randle, regional manager for the state Department of Environmental Quality.

The owner had about 40 beef cows with calves in the pasture, said Sam Irwin, spokesman for the state Department of Agriculture and Forestry. He said 19 cows died but all of the calves _ he did not know how many or whether they were old enough to sell for beef _ were fine. Tissue samples from the dead cattle and one survivor were sent to Texas A and M for analysis, Irwin said.

Randle cautioned that no determination has been made so far whether a chemical spill occurred and inspectors were collecting the water samples for testing.

Randle said he will request results as soon as possible and hopes to get them within a week. He said investigators found white, milky puddles here and there both on the well site and in a 400 square-yard area just inside the pasture.

Investigators couldn’t tell where it came from, he said.

“As soon as we get results back, we’ll be able to identify the product. When we do that, we’ll know whose they were and where it came from,” Randle said.

He said the well’s owner, Chesapeake Energy, vacuumed up the puddles Wednesday and planned to take soil samples and excavate the affected area Thursday.

The livestock died Tuesday near rain puddles in their pasture, said a Caddo Parish sheriff’s spokeswoman, Cindy Chadwick. Local residents reported the cattle were foaming at the mouth, bellowing and had bleeding tongues.

The pasture fence is about 150 feet from the well, said Kevin McCotter, director of corporate development in Louisiana for Chesapeake Energy, which owns the well.

Randle said he asked representatives from Chesapeake and oil service company Schlumberger Ltd. to identify any fluid that might have run into the pasture, but they said they had no indication of a spill.

McCotter said the well’s crew was injecting fluids at high pressure to break down the shale and release natural gas.

Chadwick said air quality tests Tuesday night did not indicate any danger.

Carol “C.C.” Canady, president of United Neighbors for Oil and Gas Rights, said she saw at least four cows collapse and die.

“The cows’ tongues hanging, bleeding off front and back, foaming at the mouth and bellowing” she said.

William Dubose said he captured video of yellowish-green fumes that smelled like a combination of antifreeze and petrochemical.

The cattle were on a pasture south of Spring Ridge, a community about 20 miles south of Shreveport.

The parish landfill refused to take the carcasses, so they were taken to the owners’ land for burial, Irwin said.

WE FOUND OUT AT THE MEETING LAST NIGHT THAT A MAN HAD 120 CHICKENS FELL DEAD AT THE SAME TIME, A LADY’S CALF FELL DEAD, AND ANOTHER LADY HAD 15 CATS ALL FELL DEAD THE DAY THE COWS DIED. WE ARE CALLING OUT DEQ. THAT IS JUST FOR STARTERS. AS MORE PEOPLE ATTEND THE MEETINGS, AND WE DO SOME MORE INVESTIGATING WE WILL PROBABLY FIND MORE. THESE PEOPLE DID NOT EVEN KNOW THE COWS WERE DEAD.

“Antifreeze just happens to be one of the chemicals in frack fluid.”…
So my question to all who really don’t give a damn about this earth…..
Are you ready to bleed out?
Oh, the war ain’t for the oil or so Bush tries to say, but he’ll send your sons & daughters, send them packin’ on their way. And when the troops keep dyin’ he’ll send in many more, ’cause the war is for the oil, and he’s their Corporate Whore.

Death came from a cloud

A silent killer took 9 lives in 1975. Could it happen again?

a final note from her daughter. An accidental release of hydrogen sulfide from this unremarkable-looking wellhead, right, killed nine people in 1975.

“DENVER CITY Faye Bernard has preserved the note, scribbled in the looping cursive of a teen-age girl.

“Moma [sic]: I’m gonna spend the night with Dee Dee,” it reads. “Love, Clara.”

This brief and, as it turned out, heartbreaking missive was written on Saturday, Feb. 1, 1975, by 14-year-old Clara Peevy. She was letting her mother, Faye, know that she’d be staying with a friend, Dee Dee Patton, at the Patton home. …” http://www.nockamixon.us/Issues/gas/dea … _cloud.htm

Marbury v. Madison, 5 U.S. 137
Chief Justice MARSHALL delivered the opinion of the Court.
[excerpt]
So, if a law be in opposition to the Constitution, if both the law and the Constitution apply to a particular case, so that the Court must either decide that case conformably to the law, disregarding the Constitution, or conformably to the Constitution, disregarding the law, the Court must determine which of these conflicting rules governs the case. This is of the very essence of judicial duty.

If, then, the Courts are to regard the Constitution, and the Constitution is superior to any ordinary act of the Legislature, the Constitution, and not such ordinary act, must govern the case to which they both apply.”

a law repugnant to the Constitution is void, and that courts, as well as other departments, are bound by that instrument

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
