Dog Chews Through Sports Car

There are a lot of dogs with chewing issues out there, but one dog went above and beyond with her compulsive behavior. She chewed through the fender of her owner's $130,000 Aston Martin DB9 Volante earlier this month. Perhaps she just had a craving for fiberglass. The damage cost $5,000 to repair. It also cost Luce her home when her owner gave her away. Well, sort of.

Book Buddies: Kids Read To Shelter Cats

To see what a wonderful airing kids and cats make you only have to look as far as You Tube. In Berks County, Pennsylvania you can just look at the Animal Rescue League.

This has raised eyebrows among animal activists around the world, and spurred the fledgling animal rights movement in Russia to take action.

Stay Afraid, Stay Very Afraid Of The Mantis Shrimp

Evolution must have been tripping when it got around to introducing the mantis shrimp to life on Earth. Unlike any other crustacean, and actually dissimilar to any other species, this member of the stomatopods not only sees the world differently, it's also a creature that's known to attack first and ask questions later.
