Slideshow: Sea Stars Dying in Mysterious Plague

Sea stars ... are succumbing to an unknown, gruesome disease. Animals waste away, their bodies falling apart and arms ripping themselves off. This time-lapse video from the Vancouver Aquarium shows a sick sea star losing its arms, one symptom of the disease in the wild. Wasting syndrome was not confirmed in this individual.

The massive outbreak has researchers baffled,...

“It comes in quickly, hits hard, and spreads far,”... [emphasis mine]

A plague is wiping out sea stars off of US East and West coasts.
