Humans have been watching cormorants for centuries along coastal regions all over the world. In all that time they were known for their exceptional fishing skills -- so much so that people in Japan, China, and Macedonia have used cormorants as tools for fishing for nearly as long. It is no wonder that scientists studying cormorants were shocked when they observed the birds engaging in cannibalism.

Back in August Anthony Ortolani climbed Mount Bierstadt, one of the many "fourteeners," or peaks that rise to 14,000 feet or more above sea level in Colorado. He took his German shepherd, Missy, along with him. On the way down he reached a point where Missy could not make it on her own. He said that he didn't want to leave her, but decided that he had to stay with her and die himself or go down the mountain without her. Eight days later she was found at 13,000 feet by Scott and Amanda Washburn, skinny, bleeding, and clinging to life.

feedback about veterinary care?  If you're a horse owner and/or horse

.... It may be an uphill battle to convince members of the New York City
Council to pass a law requiring a registry of convicted animal abusers,
primarily because of the cost - a reason similar animal abuse registries
have failed to pass in Virginia, California, and Florida.  But if NYC
can pass a law outlawing the service of large soda drinks in the city,
it should certainly be able to pass and enforce a law requiring a
registry of animal abuse offenders.

A monkey spotted tethered to a home porch rail in Opala,
Democratic Republic of Congo, back in 2007, has become a celebrity, as
he created geneticist interest in his origins. The monkey, which had
been adopted by a young girl after his mother had been killed, was
called a 'Lesula' by natives. He looked much like the owl faced monkey,
but there were differences....

Once again a marine species has ended up in the wrong part of the world. This time it was a Portuguese Man of War washed up on a Cornish beach in Wales. Ten-year-old Dawud Lee found the strange creature there and didn't know what to make of it. He picked the rare jellyfish-like creature up with a stick to get a better look at it. A moment later it slipped off the stick and landed on Dawud's foot, sending him on a trip to the emergency room.

Not to be outdone by Dog Shaming, Cat Shaming is another Tumblr site
that collects pet shaming photos and videos. The owners post signs or
captions about why their cats should feel shame, but the images
belie the statements.  Even if dogs pretend shame just to placate their
owners - Who can punish such a sad-looking dog? He knows he did wrong. -
cats are not shamed, nor do they know how to pretend to feel shame.
Nevertheless, the opportunities are there to create some fun images and

Dog shaming is not my thing; I just don't believe that pets are
motivated to change by yelling, scolding, or punishment.  Besides, dogs

it.  But there's a fun and creative way to shame your dog and share it
with the world.
