In just the last four years, Cory Peterson’s outfitting business has doubled in size to nearly 60,000 acres of deer- and turkey-rich ground in Nebraska’s Sand Hills. But Peterson, who also farms corn and raises beef cattle in the area, didn’t pursue many of his leases. Instead, neighbors came to him, offering to lease their land for annual payments that range between $1 and $3 per acre.
The main reason Peterson’s Hidden Valley Outfitting has grown? His neighbors find it increasingly difficult to allow free public hunting.
“Most traditional farmers understand the idea that hunting is something that should be free,” says Peterson. “But these guys have had gates left open by hunters, cattle shot by hunters, and water tanks shot by hunters. After a while, they just run out of patience.” [ Read Full Post ]
This is a nice story for those of you who believe in karma. Bryan Zuniga, 20, fled police last week after he was spotted driving erratically after 2 a.m. outside of Pinellas Florida.
Zuniga fled his vehicle on foot, kicked a hole in the fence of a nearby water treatment plant, and hid from police. He might have escaped if it weren't for one large and very aggressive alligator. [ Read Full Post ]
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder on Wednesday blocked efforts by animal activist groups seeking a statewide vote on a 2012 law that allows wolf hunting. The 2012 law that gives the Michigan Natural Resources Commission the power to designate species as game animals was given final authorization by the state senate on Tuesday.
Prior to this legislation, the responsibility of wolf management decisions fell on the backs of lawmakers. The MNRS plans to list wolves as a game animal for selected hunts in the Upper Peninsula areas today. The Governor is all for this. [ Read Full Post ]
Bears, believed to be intoxicated, have killed eight and injured dozens of others within the past week in the eastern Indian state of Orissa.
Villagers and forestry agents say the bears have become violent after gorging themselves on flowers from mahua trees, which are used by locals to brew alcohol. At least one bear was killed when Kotpad villagers chased it down and beat it to death. Forestry Minister Bijayshree Routray has placed forestry agents armed with tranquilizers in villages for protection in case the bears return, according to the BBC. [ Read Full Post ]
Toby Burke, a wildlife biologist for Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, was on a bird watching excursion along the Alaskan Kasilof River Beach with his family when they spotted a brown bear in the distance.
At first they didn't think much of the sighting, and soon enough the bear disappeared among some sand dunes. But the bear reappeared at close range and started heading right for Burke, his wife, their 7-month-old baby, 8-year-old son, and 11-year-old daughter. [ Read Full Post ]
Mountain lions are most commonly found in urban and suburban back alleys, they weigh 10-15 pounds, and their diet consists of small rodents, songbirds, and garbage. Oh, wait, that's feral cats, not mountain lions. Easy mistake.
An animal rescue group in California recently mistook a 25-pound feral cat for a mountain lion. The cat, which neighbors call Man Face, was subsequently captured and neutered by San Joaquin County.
“Man Face, yeah that’s what we call him,” said neighbor Jimmy Sales. “He is a real mean cat. He beats up all the cats in the neighborhood.” [ Read Full Post ]
