69082_583532605067501_1023165526_nOn the 19th of January, hunters from the “Grmeč” hunting club from Bosanska Krupa shot and killed all dogs that were at the landfill, including puppies and adult dogs and nursing females. At least fifty dogs were murdered. To cover up what they did, the hunders buried the dead dogs under piles of garbage, but they did not manage to hide all the corpses.

5,500 Siberian Beavers to Be Culled

Several thousand beavers in western Siberia are facing a cull by the summer in a drive to avoid an outbreak of disease.

Gazeta Kemerova news website cited a statement by the Kemerovo Region’s environmental protection department as saying as many as 5,500 beavers could be killed to thin out the ranks of the animal.

Overpopulation of beavers is also reportedly responsible for numerous road-flooding incidents caused by their dams.

No up-to-date information on the beaver population of Kemerovo Region is available. In 2011, the population of beavers stood at 18,000 and was growing steadily.

The Eurasian beaver was hunted to the brink of extinction in the early 20th century, but the population has bounced back enough for it to lose its threatened status.

Pathogenic plant virus jumps to honeybees

The Extinction Protocol

January 25, 2014DISEASEA viral pathogen that typically infects plants has been found in honeybees and could help explain their decline. Researchers working in the U.S. and Beijing, China report their findings in mBio, the online open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology. The routine screening of bees for frequent and rare viruses “resulted in the serendipitous detection of Tobacco Ringspot Virus, or TRSV, and prompted an investigation into whether this plant-infecting virus could also cause systemic infection in the bees,” says Yan Ping Chen from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service (ARS) laboratory in Beltsville, Maryland, an author on the study. “The results of our study provide the first evidence that honeybees exposed to virus-contaminated pollen can also be infected and that the infection becomes widespread in their bodies,” says lead author Ji Lian Li, at the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Science in…

Subsidized Cow Grazers Want to Take More Land from Wild Horses and Burros

MELBA, Idaho — A local rancher has donated a registered Angus heifer that he will sell at auction to raise money for a pending legal battle over an issue industry leaders fear could significantly reduce public lands grazing in the West.

South Mountain Ranch co-owner Matt Duckett hopes to sell the animal several times during his ranch’s annual production sale Feb. 11. He will donate the proceeds to help offset legal costs in the so-called Owyhee 68 case.

U.S. District Court Judge B. Lynn Winmill in 1999 ordered the BLM’s Owyhee field office in southwestern Idaho to rewrite 68 grazing permits that it renewed in 1997. Winmill’s decision to void the permits was the result of a lawsuit by Western Watersheds Project, which argued that the…
