    Minnesota Wolf Trapping Program Coming to an End, Farmers Brace for Bite Back-0

    by

    A federal program for trapping wolves in northern Minnesota is coming to an end after more than three decades of success. 

    The Duluth News Tribune reports that the decision to end the program was an economic one, as there is no money available for the program's continuation after the 2011 fiscal year ends this week.

    Minnesota’s wolf-trapping program has been run by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services division for 33 years, curbing populations, but with the specific objective of capturing wolves that attack pets and livestock.

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Killed a Bison-5

    by

    In May Newshound posted a story about how Mark Zuckerberg, a 27-year-old Facebook CEO, Silicon Valley resident and youngest billionaire in the world, made a vow to only eat meat that he kills himself.

    Well it seems like he's making good on his vow. Mashable is reporting that Zuckerberg recently killed a bison. According to the website, Zuckerberg obtained a hunting license and killed the animal for food.

    It's unclear whether Zuckerberg killed a free ranging bison or a farm raised one. Also, it doesn't say exactly how he killed the animal.

    NSSF Survey: 94 Percent of People Support the Right to Hunt-4

    by

    A recent telephone survey of adults 18 and older, commissioned by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), shows that 74 percent of the people polled approved of hunting.

    "The numbers have been consistent over the past two decades," Mark Damian Duda, executive director of Responsive Management, the research firm that conducted the study said in a press release. "Support for hunting is solid.”

    In addition to finding strong support for hunting, the study found that 94 percent of the people polled approved of Americans’ right to hunt as long as “they do so legally and in accordance with hunting laws and regulations.” Personal opinions about hunting did not affect this number.

    Invasive Crazy Ants Spreading in the U.S.-1

    by

    An obscure yet dangerous species of ant, the Raspberry Crazy Ant, is becoming more common in the United States, reports the Daily Mail.

    The invasive insects, which are red or brown and roughly the size of a grain of rice, first arrived in the states from Caribbean ships that subsequently docked in Southern ports. The ants quickly spread to a number of states, including Texas and Mississippi. Louisiana is the most recent state to report the ants' presence.

    The ants are extremely aggressive, and are covered with sharp, hair-like structures (similar to the fine hairs on a raspberry drupelet, which is where the ants get their name).

    Caption Contest: Write the Best Caption, Win a New Tent-141

    by

    Fire up the grill, throw back some drinks, and pony up your hard-earned cash – It’s time for a bear cub throwdown!

    OK these bear cubs aren’t really destined for a cage match, although that would be pretty cool.  Actually, it’d probably just be nauseatingly cute: A couple cubs rolling around, purring like kittens.

    Why did I automatically think of them fighting when I saw this adorable picture? I need help.  I need to have my meds adjusted.

    Boy Scouts and Outdoor Channel Team Up on Conservation Effort-0

    by

    Over the weekend the Boy Scouts joined the Outdoor Channel Corps and Time Warner Cable for the second year to clean the William H. Pouch Scout Camp in Staten Island, NY.
     
    Cleaning the trails and woods at Camp Pouch is just one stop on a tour of conservation efforts led by the Outdoor Channel Corps. Their hope is not only to clean up, but also to preserve the land for generations to come. “It's about keeping the great outdoors great. Where you hunt. Where you fish. Where children are taught to cast their first cast, bait their first hook and bag their first gobbler.” The event was part of the Outdoor Channel's effort to recruit one million volunteers by 2015 to help ensure the outdoor lifestyle survives in local communities.

    Lost California Hunter Found After Three Days-1

    by

    A Willow Creek, California, deer hunter is back home after being lost in the woods for 86 hours.

    Evan Cutting became separated from his hunting partner, Dakota Fullerton, early last weekend when Fullerton, upon feeling sick, decided to call it a day and head back to his truck. Cutting, however, chose to stay in the woods and continue hunting—a decision that would ultimately prove very dangerous and costly.

    A few hours later, Fullerton received desperate text messages from Cutting. Cutting texted Fullerton that he needed help.

    Bass Pro Shops Faces Racial Discrimination Suit-4

    by

    Bass Pro Shops is facing a racial discrimination lawsuit from the Employment Opportunity Commission, a government agency. This from the Wall Street Journal:

    "Bass Pro managers repeatedly refused to hire non-white workers as clerks, cashiers or managers, and used discriminatory language to explain their reasoning, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which filed its suit in federal district court in Houston … The EEOC said the lawsuit relies in part on confidential reports that companies are required to file that give the gender and racial makeup of their work forces; the agency said it couldn't release that information.

    The agency said the lawsuit also is based on interviews with human-resource workers and store managers who say they were directed by company executives not to hire certain kinds of people."

    Bass Pro Shops denied these claims in its press release:

    Father of Missing Hiker Asks Hunters for Help-2

    by

    Sportsmen who are planning to hunt, hike or fish near Colorado's White River National Forest, particularly around the Holy Cross Wilderness Area, are being asked to lend a hand in the search for a Chicago man who has been missing for nearly a year.

    Authorities are asking people to keep an eye out for any clues or evidence of James Nelson, including hiking equipment, his yellow one-man tent, clothing and possibly human remains. Nelson went missing from the rugged Fall Creek hiking trail on October 3, 2010. He was last seen by his fiancée, who dropped him off at the trailhead. He has not been seen since. Search-and-rescue missions have all proved unsuccessful, although rescue dogs did apparently pick up Nelson's scent off a trail near Lake Constantine, and a few hikers claim to have seen Nelson briefly on the day he went missing.
