“And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth” (Revelation 6:7-8)
Topic for further study: Are these “normal” wild animals that participate in the death of 25% of the global population? Is it possible that they are something more, as in the days of noah?
