Pellet gun killed wolf that fled Isle Royale park

Associated Press |

TRAVERSE CITY (AP) — A gray wolf that fled Isle Royale National Park across a Lake Superior ice bridge and was found dead on the mainland had been shot with a pellet from an air gun, officials said Friday.

The 5-year-old female, nicknamed “Isabelle” by researchers who monitor wolves and moose on the island park, was described as a loner that had been bullied by other wolves.

She escaped this winter, seizing the rare opportunity to traverse at least 15 miles of ice separating Isle Royale from an area along the U.S.-Canadian border. Isabelle’s body was…

All of trapped dolphins off Newfoundland have died

Global News

PORT AUX BASQUES, N.L. – Fisheries officers say all of the 30 or so white-beaked dolphins that were trapped in pack ice off Newfoundland have died.

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans says it is likely that by the time the ice breaks in the Cape Ray area the carcasses of the animals will have been dispersed by the current.

It says the provincial and municipal governments are responsible for the removal of any animal carcasses that wash ashore.

Wayne Ledwell of Whale Release and Strandings in Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s said Monday the dolphins were first spotted the night before near Cape Ray.

By late Monday afternoon, Fisheries and Oceans said all but three of the mammals had died.

The department says its officers confirmed the deaths of all the animals today.

White-beaked dolphins, which can weigh up to 300 kilograms, are usually among the first of whales, dolphins and…

Premarin Horses: How many does it take to make a billion dollars? Part 2

Tuesday's Horse

WRITTEN AND RESEARCHED BY JANE ALLIN

So let’s get started. Be warned ahead of time that this estimate is very rudimentary and relies heavily on averages and interpolation of information collected from various sources.

There are three main estrogens (along with other minor estrogen analogues), collectively referred to as CEEs [conjugated equine estrogens], found in Premarin® and its daughter products such as Prempro®, Premphase® and the new osteo-menopausal combination drug Duavee®:

(1) estrone sulfate;
(2) sodium equilin sulfate and;
(3) 17α-dihydroequilenin sulfate.

CEEs are isolated from urine via a solid phase extraction process followed by either HPLC (high-performance liquid chromatography) or TLC (thin layer chromatography) on silica gel – both methods give good results with over 97% recoveries.

Ranges of the concentrations measured during the collection period were given as:

Estrone sulfate: 0.8 – 6.4 mg/L
Sodium equilin sulfate: 0.4 – 3.2 mg/L
17α-dihydroequilenin sulfate: 0.3 – 2.4 mg/L

Amid Complaints of Animal Neglect, ‘Worst Zoo in the World’ Closes Its Doors in Croatia | One Green Planet

Life or Lunch?

Split, Croatia’s second largest city, is situated on the Adriatic coastline and is one of the country’s most popular vacation destinations thanks to its location and historic monuments, some of which date back to the Roman times. While tourists have often been satisfied with their visit to Split, one particular attraction – the Split Zoo – has left many visitors disturbed.

A number of low-level reviews have been left about the unaccredited zoo onTripAdvisor, with one visitor stating, “This is by far the worst zoo I have ever seen … The bears had … feces everywhere … and the food being given to the animals looked like it was completely rotten … Someone please shut this place down and send the animals somewhere else!!!”

Worm evolves to eat corn that was genetically engineered to kill it.

The Truth is Where?

By Christopher Hooton  18th March 2014.       Find Article Here:-

 Nature has fought back against biotechnology, with rootworms now being able to stomach corn that was genetically modified to poison the pests.
While an awe-inspiring demonstration of nature’s endurance, the development could cause billions of dollars worth of damage to US crops.

Named after the pesticidal toxin-producing Bacillus thuringiensis it contains, Bt corn makes up 75% of the US’s corn crop, but scientists’ predictions that rootworms would evolve to overcome the poison were largely ignored by farmers, companies and regulatory bodies, who have been accused of “squandering the benefits of genetic modification.”

Bt corn was first planted in 1996 as an alternative to insecticides which cause more ecological damage, and quickly caused the numbers of the voracious worm to plummet.

NONLETHAL CARNIVORE CONTROL

Between Thorn Bushes and Claws

by Robin Meadows

When wolves and other large carnivores threaten people and their livestock, wildlife managers often resort to killing these predators. But now there’s hope for a nonlethal solution to controlling carnivores. New research shows that movement-activated guards with strobe lights and sound recordings can help keep wolves and bears away.

“High-technology devices are much more expensive, complicated, and limited in effectiveness than a single bullet from a high-powered rifle, but they also allow a predator to live — surely the goal of conservation,” say John Shivik of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Wildlife Services, National Wildlife Research Center, and Utah State University in Logan; Adrian Treves, who did this work while at Conservation International in Madison, Wisconsin, and is now at the Wildlife Conservation Society in Bronx, New York; and Peggy Callahan of the Wildlife Science Center in Forest Lake, Minnesota.

Man accused of encouraging people online to kill themselves awaits court ruling

Global News

MINNEAPOLIS – A former Minnesota nurse accused of visiting online chat rooms and encouraging people to kill themselves, and who was ultimately convicted of aiding two suicides, may learn Wednesday whether the state’s highest court accepts his argument of free speech.

William Melchert-Dinkel is challenging the state law used to convict him in 2011, saying he was merely offering support to the victims. His attorney has argued that the law – which states that anyone who “intentionally advises, encourages, or assists another in taking the other’s own life” is guilty of a crime – is too broad.

If the Minnesota Supreme Court tackles the law itself, rather than issuing a narrow ruling in Melchert-Dinkel’s case, the decision could have broad implications. The court put another assisted suicide case on hold, involving a national right-to-die group, pending its decision.

“My guess is the court is going to consider, head-on, the constitutionality…

“Danger: Enlightened Dog”–Himalayan “Beware Of The Dog” Signs

The Tree of Mamre

Apparently, nearly every house in Nepal used to have charming hand-painted signs warning people of their dogs or other pets. However, this is a dying art, so American Michelle Page has started a business called Nepal Art Dogs. The idea is that you send a photo of your most beloved pet to her, and she will have an artist in Kathmandu create a sign for you. You can find examples on her webpage and at MessyNessy. Here are a few to give you a taste of what these artists have to offer.

This one looks like my Twitter avatar:
