The Poltical Cover-Up Of The Death Of Staten Island Chuck

There have been many political cover-ups in the history of this country but few have centered around the fate of a groundhog. Last February 2, Groundhog's Day, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was on hand at the Staten Island Zoo to lead the holiday festivities as the popular groundhog, Staten Island Chuck, was brought out to check for his shadow. The mayor accidentally dropped the furry rodent during the ceremony.

Her Name Is Olivia Poop & She’s A Fixer!

The Pet Collective has done it again. Their hilarious recent video parody was just released and appropriately timed to debut just one day prior to the first episode of the fourth season of the smash TV hit show, Scandal to air September 25.

Pets To Receive Animal Cruelty Protection, In Wake Of NFL Cases

While violence against women and children have occupied the headlines of late date, due to the firestorm ignited by NFL player Ray Rice against his wife, less has been reported about the changes to the current status of animal protection. But good news -  this week, according to CatChannel.com, crimes against animals will receive the same treatment as major offenses such as murder, assault and arson.

The Story Of A Noble Camper

Once upon a time there was a small Viszla puppy born as the runt of a championship litter. Because he was the runt he did not measure up to being champion material. He waited patiently as his litter mates all found good homes, but it didn't look as though his turn was coming. Then one day his human dad showed up, took him home, and named him Noble. It was an adoption made in heaven.

Girlhood & Animals, A Coming of Age Photo-Drama

Similar to the recent release of the full-length movie, Boyhood, Robin Schwartz’ photobook Amelia & the Animals, captures her daughter’s life from ages 3 to 14. However differing from the movie, this child is filmed over time interacting with a series of animals -- animals that most other children could only dream about engaging with.

Who Knew Animals Could Out Smart Humans?

The next time you see yourself paling in comparison to those who’ve won the Nobel Peace Prize or you've failed to find a cure for cancer, bear in mind in addition to being outdone by your fellow man, you may also be outflanked by a few super animals. Some of them have innate abilities that a lot of humans need college degrees to match up.

Goat Detained For Armed Robbery

This one has got to be filed under "strange but true." A few years ago a goat was arrested on suspicion of attempted armed robbery after two men tried to steal a Toyota 323. So how did a goat get mixed up in a caper like this? It is a wild tale full of mystery and magic -- and possibly a case of mistaken identity.

Kitten Rescued From Dire Situation

Cats can have a way of getting into many a strange and unexpected situation. This is certainly true of one kitten in Russia that somehow managed to get itself stuck in the spring of a Toyota Land Cruiser. The poor creature traveled 50 miles before the driver, Vitaliy Bouranin, stopped for gas and noticed that his undercarriage was meowing.

Strange But True: A Sturgeon Petting Zoo

Having a petting zoo for a fish is not the sort of thing you'd expect to find anywhere, let alone as far inland as Urbana, Ohio. It may sound strange (and it is) but true. A fish hatchery by the name of Freshwater Farms has set up a tank where several endangered White Sturgeons and several other species are kept for visitors to the hatchery to get to meet and get to know personally.

Dolphin Tale’s Aquarium Says NO To ‘Show Must Go On’

In the literal and figurative wake of the controversy that emerged at SeaWorld, and the subsequent film “Blackfish” that documented it, it’s not surprising that the Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Florida decided to bring down the curtain on using dolphins for entertainment purposes.
