You will notice how the other cub tries to help Momma.

    Unexplained deaths of sea life are continuing to cause anxiety in Russia’s Far East. On Tuesday, fish, octopuses and crabs were filmed washed ashore hundreds of kilometers away from the spot where the alarm was first raised. A video of the ecological disaster near Ozernovskiy village on Kamchatka’s western coast shows dead marine creatures scattered along a 50-meter-wide area of the beach. The peninsula, some 7,000km east of Moscow, is home to one of the earth’s most pristine environments. The footage is similar to clips that came from Avacha Bay on the opposite eastern coast in late September, when numerous...

    Stephen Maciejewski dropped to a knee on a Center City sidewalk Wednesday morning and gently scooped up a yellow-billed cuckoo that had smashed into a skyscraper and died on its way to Central America or the West Indies. “This probably happened yesterday,” said Maciejewski, a 71-year-old retired social worker and volunteer for Audubon Pennsylvania. He labeled a plastic bag with the time, date, and location, tucked the slim migrator into it, and continued his rounds. Maciejewski gets emotional when he speaks about all the birds he finds, but nothing, he says, prepared him for what happened Friday. “So many birds...

    Residents of Balakovo, Saratov region, witnessed the terrifying moment when dozens of black birds suddenly fell dead on the road over a radius of more than 50 meters. The footage shows dozens of dead crows lying on the roadway and sidewalks. The cause of the death of the birds has not yet been determined. According to officials, there are no traces of bullets or any other traces of violent death. Some eyewitnesses suggest that the birds died because of fireworks, hosted by locals, or electrical wires. Other residents believe the flock was poisoned or the bird mass die-off is link...

    A population explosion among wild boars in the US has led experts to warn that a “feral swine bomb,” if left unchecked, could wreak havoc on large swaths of the country. Undark Magazine reported on the explosion of the pig population, which has caused an estimated $2.5bn worth of damages every year. Feral hogs trample and tear-up crops, attack livestock, and can destroy sensitive habitats. The pigs also act as disease carriers. They can host more than 30 viral and bacterial diseases as well as scores of parasites. here are approximately 9 million feral hogs in the US, and their...
  • Why do orcas start attacking boats? Scientists and sailors left baffled

    Reports of orcas striking sailing boats in the Straits of Gibraltar have left sailors and scientists confused. Just what is causing such unusually aggressive behaviour? When nine killer whales surrounded the 46ft boat that Victoria Morris was crewing in Spain on the afternoon of 29 July, she was elated. The biology graduate taught sailing in New Zealand and is used to friendly orca encounters. But the atmosphere quickly changed when they started ramming the hull, spinning the boat 180 degrees, disabling the autohelm and engine. The 23-year-old watched broken bits of the rudder float off, leaving the four-person crew without...

    Over the past few weeks, various species of migratory birds are dying in “unprecedented” numbers of unknown causes. And this growing number of birds in southern New Mexico that have mysteriously died have wildlife experts scratching their heads. “It is terribly frightening,” Desmond said. “We’ve never seen anything like this. … We’re losing probably hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of migratory birds.“ In August, large numbers of birds were found dead at White Sands Missile Range and at the White Sands National Monument in what was thought to be an isolated incident, Desmond said. After that, however, came reports...

    ...The opposum's ability to munch down on the annoying blood suckers took even researchers by surprise. "I had no suspicion they'd be such efficient tick-killing animals," said Richard Ostfeld, of the Cary Institute for Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, New York. "Don't hit opossums if they've playing dead in the road." Opossums are crazy, fastidious, grooming animals like cats, and when they find a tick, it's right down the hatch. Researchers found many digested ticks in the feces of cooperative opossums. Cheers to the guy who got that job! Ostfeld said that one opossum can kill and eat some 5,000 ticks...
  • Extend the Range of .22 Shotshells with Reverse Paradox Tubes for a Garden Gun

    Gun Watch ^ | 19 May, 2020 | Dean Weingarten
    In a previous article, I commented on the usefulness of .22 LR shotshells and their limited range. Their use is severely hampered by the poor patterns produced by these shotshells out of rifled barrels. The effective range of these shells can be doubled or tripled with the use of a reverse paradox tube. The Ball and Shot gun, more commonly known as the Paradox gun, was invented by Col. George Fosbery, VC, and patented in England in 1885. The patent was sold to Holland and Holland who marketed the guns under the Paradox name.  The idea was simple: put...

    Fatass has now added Wisconsin to the list of places his family has been staying in violation of the "quarantine" and "no-travel" orders he has given: Gov. J.B. Pritzker for the first time Friday acknowledged his wife and daughter were in Florida before Illinois’ statewide stay-at-home order took effect in March and just recently returned to Chicago. But don't worry! It's all because of "safety:" He said he was being “very private and very reserved” about his family “because there are threats to my safety and to their safety. “You have seen that there are people that stand outside the...
