    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (KMSP) - Meet Quasimodo, one of only 13 dogs in the world diagnosed with short spine syndrome. This 4-year-old German shepherd was found as a stray and brought to a shelter in Kentucky. But this week, "Quasi" made his way to Secondhand Hounds in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, where he will hopefully find his forever home. After years of neglect, Quasi had a collar embedded in his nearly non-existent neck. Volunteers named him after the hunchback Disney character just before he arrived in Minnesota Thursday night. He's been stealing hearts ever since.

    MARIETTA, Ohio - Marietta K9 Officer Matt Hickey says he's spent every day for the past three years with his partner Ajax. "Ajax is a family member, one of my children," he said. But this bond could be broken forever. It all started when Hickey decided he wanted to retire. Hickey is 57 and Ajax is going on 6. Ajax has the potential to work six more years. "I was under the assumption I would end up with the dog [when I retired]," he said. Hickey says he offered to pay the city $3,500, which is what the city says...

JRandomFreeper has passed away, and that coupled with a good friend and neighbor suddenly passing away last October, I am in need of some relief for the depression this news has brought about. So, in an effort to dispel the gloom and provide an atmosphere for others to take their minds off of the loss of a good FReeper, I present this Oldie-but-Moldy concept. Hope it brings a smile here and there despite the tears. So: === Cats are better than women because:...

Fish and Game officials in Preston checked the male after it was killed in late December, and are hoping to be recontacted by the hunter to find out where the carcass is. Spokeswoman Jennifer Jackson says that biologists would like to check it out to see from a scientific standpoint just what was going on with the cougar. They're waiting on the hunter to return...

    Veterinary Practice News ^ | 2/8/2012 | Nicholas Dodman, BVMS, Dipl. ACVB
    Owner-directed aggression in dogs has been written and talked about at length, but feline owner-directed aggression has received less attention. In dogs, “conflict aggression” has replaced “dominance aggression” as a more accurate description of the behavior’s motivation. The change occurred because pundits no longer accept the premise that the relationship between dogs and their owners is governed by pack mentality, as neither dogs in the wild nor, as it turns out, wolves seem to organize themselves along these lines. With this in mind, it seems ludicrous to discuss dominance or status-related aggression in cats, as they do not organize themselves...

You can get a better lay of your land, you can see where the deer were most recently moving, and shed hunting is a great way to introduce hunting to a youngster. But for many hunters there is just not always enough time to get in the woods and hunt sheds. But with just a few dollars and a little bit of time you can build an antler...

    Bear spray is a useful tool that can help protect humans and bears in limited circumstances. It seems that if a bear is not serious about mauling, killing, and/or eating the human, the spray can convince a bear to stop investigating the human and leave them alone. But the ability of spray to stop bears bent on attack is far less certain. Here are two more cases where bear spray failed and bullets were necessary. From kxlo-clcm.com: A lone female grizzly bear reportedly surprised a man hunting elk at Big Creek north of Gardiner on Oct. 28. The hunter...

Anyone!” Nope.Wolves in eastern North America, whose populations steadily dwindled due to deforestation and hunting, had no choice but to settle for coyotes. Interspecies dating is a wonderful thing, but for a wolf, the larger and handsomer of the two canines, a...

    It is rare for a new animal species to emerge in front of scientists’ eyes. But this seems to be happening in eastern North America. ___ Like some people who might rather not admit it, wolves faced with a scarcity of potential sexual partners are not beneath lowering their standards. It was desperation of this sort, biologists reckon, that led dwindling wolf populations in southern Ontario to begin, a century or two ago, breeding widely with dogs and coyotes. The clearance of forests for farming, together with the deliberate persecution which wolves often suffer at the hand of man, had...
