Kenya opens $100m wildlife forensic lab to help prosecute poachers

Emilio Cogliani

New facility in Nairobi, first of its kind in east Africa, will collect and analyse DNA samples to help investigators identify the animal species killed by poachers

Rhinos and elephants are among the animals being killed by poachers in Kenya, part of a growing illegal wildlife trade across Africa driven by demand in Asia and estimated to be worth hundreds of billions of dollars a year.

Avian Flu now in 16 States

Nwo Report

(Reuters) –The fast-spreading avian flu virus was confirmed for the first time in Nebraska, at a commercial egg-laying farm that housed a flock of 1.7 million chickens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said on Tuesday.

The case in Dixon County, Nebraska, brings the number of states affected by the outbreak to 16, and the U.S. tally of birds that have either died or will be killed to 32 million.

The U.S. poultry and egg industry has been grappling for months with the biggest outbreak on record of avian influenza in the United States.

Authorities do not know how the H5N2 virus reached the Nebraska farm. The property has been quarantined and the flock will be culled, USDA said.

“Unfortunately, Nebraska has joined a long list of states currently dealing with highly pathogenic avian influenza,” said Greg Ibach, director of the Nebraska Department of Agriculture.

Can Emoji Help Save Endangered Animals?

Igor Purlantov

Saving wildlife is now just a tweet away.  On Tuesday, WWF International launched its worldwide “Endangered Emoji” campaign, which lets users contribute to the organization’s conservation efforts by tweeting any one of 17 endangered emoji animals.The campaign reflects recent efforts by charities and advocacy groups to marry philanthropy and social media. In the last few years, donating to a cause has become increasingly simple, as websites, text messaging, and finally Facebook and Twitter provided anyone with a smartphone or an Internet connection with a way to participate or give with a click.

Florida City Fires Their Entire Police Force

Eatgrueldog

“One Florida town has been hit by corruption and it is so bad, the entire police force has been fired. The most corrupt city in the state has been exposed for its unlawful ways during a recent audit. All cops and elected officials in office have been let go or will be soon as this is just one of the stipulations that had to be followed to spare the city of Hampton, as its corruption runs deep.”

“Trouble arose in a quite innocent way according to the newly hired city attorney John Cooper. A Texaco gas station on nearby US 301 asked for cops to protect the place after a couple of bad accidents and homicides took place. Then, Hampton annexed a 1,200-foot stretch of highway. Later on though, someone arrived at the idea that a lot of easy cash was to be made from pulling over speeders and writing…

Living With Booklice

Living With Insects Blog

Photo: Jarmo Holopainen, pbase.com Historians have an interest in the preservation of important manuscripts. Books and other paper documents can be damaged by excessive sunlight, moisture, microorganisms, fungi and insects.  Booklice are insects that sometimes damage books.  In nature, booklice live under the bark of trees and feed on fungus.  Can such insects survive on a diet of the paper and adhesive found in books?

Green and Farman compared growth and reproduction of booklice on combinations of paper and adhesive to booklice grown on diet specifically for booklice. The booklice thrived on the artificial diet but decreased in numbers and did not reproduce on paper and adhesive alone. During their experiment some booklice died and the survivors were observed feeding on them. The dead book lice may have sustained the life of the booklice survivors. They conclude that booklice need a source of food…

11-Year-Old Boy Accused Of Beating Dog To Death With Stick In Texas

Emilio Cogliani

An 11-year-old boy is under investigation in Fort Worth, Texas, after a dog was found beaten to death.

The dog, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix named Cookie, was discovered dead on Monday, KXAS-TV reports. Owner Jennifer Knittel says Cookie and her other dog, a German Shepherd named Sam, had been playing outdoors before the alleged incident.

According to WFAA-TV, a witness told Fort Worth police that she had been driving through the neighborhood when she spotted a boy attempting to kick the two dogs, who were hiding under a parked truck. The witness says she returned a few minutes later, and saw Cookie’s limp body “slumped” on a neighbor’s porch.

“The boy was walking away from the porch with a big stick in his hand,” the woman was quoted as saying, per Knittel.
