Newsom supports a 2016 agreement under which PacifiCorp would transfer its federal hydroelectric licenses for the dams to a nonprofit coalition, the Klamath River Renewal Corp., that was formed to oversee the demolition. ......

    Colorado has a bear problem. Pure and simple, we have too many bears.. When I was a kid growing up .. my brother and I spent a lot of time in the woods. We were hiking, backpacking, exploring, hunting and climbing around all the time in the high country. Never once did we see a bear. I clearly recall the first time I ever saw a bear in the woods, and I was 31 years old, in 1993. Not too long after that, I took over the outfitting permits in Marble, Colorado, and I remember one day when I saw...

    An orangutan named Sandra, at the center of a landmark ruling in Argentina that said she is a "non-human person" entitled to some of the same rights as humans, is making her way to a Florida sanctuary where great apes enjoy those privileges without benefit of a court order. Once Sandra is there, the 33-year-old orangutan will have the company of others in her species for the first time in many years. Sandra left her solitary world at a zoo in Buenos Aires in late September and is currently in Kansas, where she'll remain in quarantine until she's cleared to...

    It was about half past midnight when Russ Fee woke up to the sound of frantic shouts coming from a campsite next to his in Canada's Banff National Park. From within his tent, he listened, quickly discerning that the voices belonged to a man and a woman. They were screaming for help. "I threw my shoes on. My wife tossed me a lantern," Fee said in an interview Tuesday with the radio show "Calgary Eyeopener." "I popped out of the tent and just started running toward their tent sort of yelling, 'I'm here! I'm here! What's wrong?'" Fee, who is...

    On Friday, actor Tom Arnold tweeted a death threat against Donald Trump Jr. Arnold had previously challenged President Donald Trump to a fistfight. Since Arnold has 250,000 followers, Secret Service warned him that this kind of inciting tweet could encourage his followers to engage in real violence. How much more so a bona fide death threat! Arnold began his attack by tweeting out a picture of Trump Jr. holding the tail of an African elephant he had killed while on safari in 2011. "This is Donald Trump Jr. He is holding the tail of a beautiful African elephant he murdered...

    As County Fair season draws near, 4-H families should be aware of activists who are targeting show animals. County fair season is upon us, and in case you missed it, last week I blogged about a 10-year study that showed the benefits of 4-H in developing young people who go on to be active civically, who volunteer in their communities and who lead happy, healthy lives. As 4-H youth prepare for the county and state fair, presenting their livestock before a judge is ultimately the culmination of a year’s worth of work. It takes time, dedication, consistency, patience and continually...

    California Assemblyman Ash Kalra (D-San Jose) has introduced a bill that would ban high school biology classes from dissecting animals as part of their learning about anatomy. Kalra says that “the current law allowing students with moral objections to opt out of the dissection lesson is unsatisfactory. For one, it still allows the callous exploitation of animals to go forward. Second, it allows students without moral scruples to receive a more complete education than their morally superior peers.” “The whole premise of these dissections is founded on an unwarranted notion that humans are more important than other creatures,” Kalra observed....

    Another day, another left-wing hate hoax crime. Michigan – Nikki Joly, a biological woman who transitioned into a man, is accused of burning down ‘his’ own home, killing 5 pets in a hate hoax crime. Joly’s home burned down in 2017 and the FBI investigated it as a hate crime because Joly was a transgender man and gay rights activist in a conservative town and reportedly received threats over ‘his’ activism. It turns out Nikki Joly was frustrated that the ‘Jackson Pride Parade’ and festival held just days before the home was set ablaze, hadn’t received more attention or protests....
