    Officials Plan to Shoot Barred Owls to Protect Endangered Spotted Owls-28

    by

    Barred owls are bullies.

    They use their larger size and superior hunting skills to make things difficult for the much smaller and highly endangered spotted owl.

    In forest areas where the two species are found, barred owls thrive while the spotted owl suffers. Because of this, the Obama Administration announced a new plan that would allow government workers to shoot selected barred owls so that their spotted cousins might thrive. It’s survival of the fittest at its best.

    Mutated, Two-Headed Trout Found in Idaho -4

    by


    I’m not a scientist -- I don’t even play one on TV.

    But even with my limited knowledge of the scientific world, I know enough to say without fear of reprisal that two-headed fish are not generally an indicator of a healthy watershed. The two-headed fish in question is a trout and was just one of many abnormal fish that were regulated to an appendix of a scientific study commissioned by the J.R. Simplot Company.

    Is It Hunting If You're Shooting A Camera?-13

    by

    Hunting author and wildlife photographer Richard P. Smith believes the time is right for hunting moose in Michigan – with a camera.

    Moose were reintroduced to the state in 1985 when 59 Algonquin Provincial Park moose from Canada were released in Marquette County. Since then the herd growth has been less than impressive.

    Murder Fur Hire: Animal Rights Activist Solicits Hitman on Facebook-9

    by

    Meredith Lowell, 27, needed something shocking—an event to make a bold statement—prior to her distributing leaflets on the evils of animal abuse. So she went on Facebook to solicit the murder of a random fur wearer to take place outside a library or playground—you know, some place social—in her hometown of Cleveland Heights, Ohio.

    According to investigators, the FBI was notified in November that Lowell had offered between $830 to $850 on a Facebook page, created under the alias of Anne Lowery, for the murder of a random fur wearer. An FBI employee posing as a hitman responded. Lowell offered the undercover agent $730 or the equivalent in jewelry to kill a victim at least 12 years old but "preferably 14 years old or older.”

    MT Wildlife Commission Allows Hunters to Shoot Bison That Wander Outside Yellowstone Area-4

    by

    Montana's wildlife commission voted 4-1 Thursday to authorize hunters to shoot bison that stray beyond extended "tolerance areas" north of Yellowstone National Park and areas outside the Fort Peck and Fort Belknap Indian reservations.

    The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Department says the move is designed to ease public resistance to bison roaming freely outside of the designated areas. The move is also designed to complement other bison management efforts implemented by officials such as driving or guiding bison back into the parks, or capturing them for relocation or slaughter.

    First-Time Fisherman Breaks English-Channel Cod Record-3

    by

    Chris Proctor is a very lucky man.

    Proctor broke the fishing record for the biggest cod ever caught in the English Channel. It was his first sea fishing trip.

    The 31-year-old took to the seas with a group of friends only after being goaded into it.

    “I almost didn’t go on the trip because I had so much work on but the rest of the guys talked me into it – thank god they did.  None of us could believe our eyes when we got it on the boat and saw it’s size. It was an amazing experience and a once in a lifetime catch,” Proctor told the Metro UK.

    Demand For Rat Meat in Thailand is Exceeding Supply of Rodents-11

    by

    Thailand is in the midst of a huge rat problem -- and it’s probably not what you think.

    The problem is that there aren’t enough rodents to satisfy the country’s growing appetite for rat meat. This shortage has driven the price of the delicacy to over $3 a pound; a price higher than that of chicken or pork. Rat meat is prepared several ways but is most often barbequed or cooked in oil. The rats come from both the city, where hunters chase them down and clock them with sticks, and from the country where they are trapped in agricultural fields.
