What is now the third largest wildfire in Colorado history, the High Park fire has displaced many pets, a large amount of livestock, and even wolves.

New Jersey recently made history when it became the first state in the country to require drivers to restrain their pets when the pets are travelling with them in the car. The law carries stiff fines for drivers who don't comply, ranging from $250 to $1000.

When we think of bears we might imagine a
big brown bear that might come lumbering around a camp site, or a white
polar bear lumbering around the Arctic ice, or a big papa panda bear
sitting in a 'natural' zoo environment munching on some bamboo. Seldom
