What’s going on? Is Mother Nature PO’ed or what?
The past week or so has seen animal attack after animal attack. Here’s a rundown of the latest.
On Sept. 4, a man was attacked by a black bear while walking his dogs in a Larkspur, Colo. neighborhood. The Colorado Division of Wildlife reports that the man was attacked suddenly and without warning. He suffered injuries to one arm when the bear bit him and to his other arm while defending himself. The bear retreated at the man’s lashing out. [ Read Full Post ]
On Aug. 26 Steve Michel, a human wildlife conflict specialist with Banff National Park, received a noontime call concerning a nuisance coyote in the Whiskey Creek condo complex.
The caller said that a young coyote came from the woods to attack the garden hose he was dragging across the lawn. The song dog reportedly hissed and growled as it did so. The man dropped the hose, kicked the coyote, and fled the scene on a 4-wheeler to call authorities. [ Read Full Post ]
Editor's Note: This is part 2 of 2-part series on battling the HSUS to open a wolf hunt in Michigan. See part 1 of this series here.
So where were we?
Ah yes. The Humane Society of the United States has come to Michigan. Again.
Last time these anti-hunting extremists were here was in 2006 when they spent in the neighborhood of $3 million to repeal the state's recently-enacted dove hunting season.
HSUS' message was simple: You can't eat doves. Hunters will murder millions of the birds and leave the population in peril. [ Read Full Post ]
Ranking right up there with “The dog ate my homework” and “The check is in the mail” comes one of the worst excuses ever: “I was hunting squirrels.”
This comment was in response to the inquiry of why a Bellingham, Washington man fired an arrow with a bag of marijuana attached to it into a Washington state jail.
According to Sheriff Bill Elfo, 36-year-old David Wayne Jordan took a pot shot at the jail's second-floor recreation area but missed his target. When confronted by a Whatcom County sheriff about his attempted drug delivery David said he was merely squirrel hunting. [ Read Full Post ]
It might not be the $3 million “Fantasy Bra” from Victoria’s Secret, but the pair of panties Ira McCauley found, cost whoever owns them about $2,000.
McCauley is the owner and head veterinarian at McCauley Animal Clinic in Saint Charles, Mo. Not long ago he had a dog come in with a GI block. McCauley opened the dog up and pulled out a pair of panties it had swallowed. With a surgery like this costing between $1,500 and $2,500 (after radiographs, medication, follow-up, etc.), those knickers just became very expensive.
Some of the craziest items he’s found inside investigative, bored, or otherwise troublesome pups? “Rocks, tampons, towels, bullets, Gorilla Glue, nipples from baby bottles, Easter eggs, kick balls, turtles, corncobs – the list goes on and on,” he said. [ Read Full Post ]
Minnesota is home to more wolves than any other state in the Lower 48 and there has never been a documented wolf attack there. However, that is about to change.
Wildlife officials are investigating a reported wolf attack on a 16-year-old boy who was camping over the weekend in the Chippewa National Forest, according to the Pioneer Press. If the incident is confirmed by wildlife experts, it would be the first ever documented wolf attack in the Lower 48. There is only one case of a fatal wolf attack in Alaska and another in Canada.
On the evening of Aug. 23, campers said a wolf tore through a U.S. Forest Service campground, ripping into two tents and popping an air mattress. The 16-year-old boy (whose name has not been released) was sleeping outside of a tent when the wolf snuck up on him and bit him in the head. The boy kicked the wolf off of him, but not before he suffered puncture wounds to his head and face. He was treated for nonlife-threatening injuries at a hospital in Bemidji, Minn., according to the Pioneer Press. [ Read Full Post ]
Our buddies at LouisianaSportsman.com had this trail camera photo posted to their site earlier this month. The shot was taken about three miles east of Toledo Bend lake in Louisiana.
Immediately readers guessed the strange-looking creature was a hyena, a chupacabra, or a coy dog. I was almost certain it was a new genetically modified species created by the government. [ Read Full Post ]
