On MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann Monday night, Marine toxicologist Riki Ott alleged that British Petroleum (BP) is trying to discourage or disallow public and media from seeing some of the horrific results of their oil leak by removing oiled animal carcasses from Gulf beaches.
“Turtle watch volunteers who walk the beaches consistently every morning at 6:00 a.m., they’re saying the carcasses are disappearing”
“People who walk the beaches at night, they’ve seen little baby dolphins wash up dead, flashlights, people descend out of nowhere, carcass gone in 15 minutes.
There’s reports from offshore of massive kills on the barrier islands from fishermen who have been working on the spill response…
BP’s response has been to use metal detectors to keep and prevent the people from even taking cell phones out to photograph this.”
There have been reports in the past few days of BP hiring private security contractors to keep the public and media away from oiled beaches.
