    A gray wolf (canis lupus) has been observed in counties of California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range, with the animal returning to territory from which it’s been absent from for nearly a century. The GPS-tracked wolf, designated OR-93, has traveled south from Oregon, passing through Modoc County and Alpine County. Most recently, the wolf entered Mono County. The journey of the young male wolf represents new territorial range from the species. Biologists believe it’s possible the wolf’s presence could result in the formation of new wolf packs in the Sierra Nevada region, should the animal prove successful in returning to the...

    Since early 2021 much of regional Australia is experiencing a mouse plague. The rodents have kept multiplying through the summer, and are expected to continue to do so even through the winter, potentially threatening crops. Now look at the result! It’s apocalyptic: Hundreds of thousands of mice are ransacking sheds and houses, getting onto and into everything across NSW, Qld, SA and Victoria, Australia. The rodents are munching through crops and wiring, and to the horror of home owners they’ve even been found in bags of bread. The whole district smells of mice. Why this mouse plague? Rainfall and good...

    VIDEOThe owner of this Shih Tzu told me she named the dog "Andy Rooney" because he resembled the late CBS commentator Andy Rooney both in appearance as well as due to having the same curmudgeonly character. What do you think? I can attest that the Andy Rooney dog definitely was a curmudgeon since he only barely tolerated my presence.

    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...

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...
