    Iditarod five-time champion Dallas Seavey had to kill a moose in self-defense 14 miles out of the Skwentna checkpoint. It was 1:43 a.m. when race officials were notified on March 4th. In 2015, Dallas stated he carried a Taurus stainless .357 magnum on the Iditarod trail. In 2015, Seavey said he had to use the revolver to defend one of his dogs two years earlier. The dog still lost a leg in the attack. This year, in 2024, Dallas had to shoot a moose that was attacking his dogs in the first hundred miles of the race. It is unknown...

    Scientists are sounding the alarm over the spread of “zombie deer disease” amid fears it may evolve to infect humans. Late last year, experts confirmed Yellowstone National Park’s first case of the infection — officially known as chronic wasting disease — after a deer carcass found in the Wyoming area of the park tested positive for the highly contagious disease. Now, cases have been reported in deer, elk and moose in 33 states across the US, as well as in Canada, Norway and South Korea. The disease “damages portions of the brain and typically causes progressive loss of body condition,...

This versatile dish lends itself well to both desserts and savory recipes. In fact, several types of mousse can be served at the same meal. From a smokey salmon mousse as the first course to a tart lemon...

    It’s no gouda. A 74-year-old dairy farmer got creamed during a meltdown at his sprawling cheese warehouse in northern Italy on Sunday night when thousands of wheels of hard parmesan-style formaggio collapsed on top of him. Giacomo Chiapparini, the owner of the eponymous Chiapparini cheese-making company in Lombardy, was killed in the freak accident when giant shelves holding the 90lb wheels of grana padano cheese suddenly buckled. Chiapparini was using a machine to rotate and clean the cheese wheels at various stages of ripening when one of the metal shelves caved, creating a “domino effect,” firefighter Antonio Dusi told the...

    Warning! Warning! Moose are on the loose! And it turns out that a big culprit causing global warming could be none other than Bullwinkle or at least his real life cousins. The Washington Post eagerly issued this warning on Saturday in a story by Erin Blakemore, "Hungry moose fingered as possible factor in climate change." Don’t mess with moose. They’re big, they’re strong — and now researchers say they may be contributing to climate change. Yes, research suggests that moose may factor into a dramatic reduction in the amount of carbon stored in some forests. Wherever they feed, the large...

    Researchers claim that moose are potentially a leading cause of climate change and that the species should be balanced, suggesting they are "one of the biggest potential single sources of carbon emissions from wooded parts of Norway." The Norwegian University of Science and Technology studied moose in Norwegian forests for several years and concluded that the species have a major effect on vegetation growth and are altering the carbon cycle by dining on tree buds. "Moose are an ecosystem engineer in the forest ecosystem, and strongly impact everything from the species composition and nutrient availability in the forest. A grown...

In 2018 Axtell filed an order of protection against the elderly man which was initially granted but later dropped....

    "The Republican Party of 1912 decided it would be better off renominating William Howard Taft, even though its voters would have preferred another Roosevelt term. The resulting split ushered in Woodrow Wilson and the first academic globalists, whose bright ideas laid the groundwork for a second world war on the eve of the conclusion of the first. ... But, despite the obvious differences, we’re heading for a 1912-repeat, in which the Republican Party ignores its own voters.
