    Wildlife Officials to Ban Coyote and Predator Contests in California-5

    by

    The California Fish and Game Commission issued a proposed rule last week that would outlaw coyote and other predator contests that reward hunters. Officials at the FGC meeting Wednesday voted 3-2 in favor of the proposal, which establishes a public comment period open through Aug. 6, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

    Earlier this year the animal activist group Project Coyote requested a ban on all predator contests in California. The Change.org petition has garnered nearly 22,000 signatures and wildlife officials received nearly 13,000 letters demanding the statewide termination of such contests. In comparison the FGC received only eight letters in support of keeping the contests legal. One of the few hunters who wrote the agency pointed out in his letter that “predator hunting is a valuable management tool that needs to be protected.” The hunter also noted the negative impacts the proposal could impart on ranching and deer hunting in the state.

    Video: Anglers Wrestle World-Record Mako in the Surf-0

    by

    Yesterday we posted a story about a giant mako shark that will likely break the land-based catch world record. Today, a video has been released of the two anglers, cousins Earnie and Joe Polk, wrestling the 805-pound shark in the surf.

    The anglers tried to release the shark, but it was too weak after the fight to swim away. So, the shark became the main course at a community barbecue.

    New World-Record Bighorn Ram Picked Up in Alberta-1

    by

    A bighorn ram whose horns reportedly surpass the current world-record measurement has been found dead nearly a year after it disappeared from the grounds of the famous Cadomin Mine property in Alberta.

    The ram was officially scored last week at 209-1/8 inches net, with only 2/8 inches of deductions. That score exceeds the current world-record bighorn, also from Alberta, which scores 208-3/8. The Boone & Crockett Club announced on Saturday the official score and indicated plans to convene a full panel to score the ram—-a condition required before bestowing world-record status-—in the coming weeks.

    For nearly a year, bighorn sheep enthusiasts and Alberta Fish & Wildlife officers had speculated about the fate of the big ram, which some hunters claim might have measured 215 inches on the hoof. The ram disappeared from view last spring, leading some to suspect it had been poached. It turns out the ram died from natural causes, or was taken down by a grizzly bear.

    by

    An angler team of two cousins reeled in a possible world-record shortfin mako shark from the shore near Pensacola, Fla. last week. Earnie and Joey Polk had intended to keep the potentially controversial catch under wraps, but a passerby snapped this photo when the two stopped for gas. The photo went viral on social media and the story was soon picked up by a local paper.

    Centipede Claws Out of Snake's Stomach-0

    by

    Mother Nature took the “fight-or-flight response” to new heights when she pitted this nose-horned viper against a centipede.

    Researchers on a field study in Macedonia last year discovered the dead snake with a centipede sticking out from its belly. A dissection of the snake revealed that its internal organs were missing. Researchers believe the centipede might have still been alive at the time it was swallowed, and that it destroyed the snake’s organs while trying to claw its way back out, Livescience reports. A brief report of the incident was recently published in the journal Ecologica Montenegrina.

    Record Freeze on the Great Lakes Has Big Impact on Fish and Waterfowl-0

    by

    This winter’s merciless conditions have brought reports of wildlife struggling to survive all across the country. The Minnesota DNR reluctantly rolled out an emergency feeding plan for its whitetails and a cold-stun kill in North Carolina devastated trout fishing prospects. And even though we’ve officially made it to spring, scientists say the effects from this winter will persist for months to come in the Great Lakes region.

    The Great Lakes have experienced near-record ice cover this year, with 48 percent of the five lakes still covered in ice as of April 10. That figure is down from the high on March 6 when 92 percent of the five lake’s 90,000-plus square miles were choked with ice, according to The Atlantic Cities. In comparison, ice coverage of the Great Lakes maxed out at about 38 percent in 2013 and just 13 percent in 2012. (This NASA photo shows 80 percent ice coverage on Feb. 19.)

    Montana Mountain Lion Hunters Oppose Increasing Harvest Quotas-0

    by

    Mountain lion hunters across Montana criticized increased harvest quotas presented at the Fish, Wildlife and Parks meeting Thursday in Helena. The agency relied on its own recent population study to propose raised quotas for the next two seasons, but hunters say wildlife officials overestimated the number of big cats and set quotas too high for the Bitterroot Watershed.
