Angry Beaver Terrorizes Canadian Town

A lost beaver with a chip on its shoulder virtually shut down the town of Miramichi, New Brunswick, angrily attacking anyone who tried to take its picture. Maybe we should re-name it “Justin Beaver”.

Mr. Tiffany: A Rodent Love Story

It was a dark and stormy night is considered a trite and cliché way to start a story, but in this case that is how it started. That was the night that Alexandra and Colin found a dark bit of baby rat in the alley next to their apartment building in Hong Kong. The tiny creature was near death and they realized that they couldn't just leave him to die.

Resurrection Biology For Those Who Think Extinction Stinks!

It sounds likes a science fiction plot line, or a novel penned by Stephen King. However in actuality, the science called 'Resurrection Biology' or 'De-extinction' has been in development for years by scientists who are becoming more and more proficient at understanding the intricacies of DNA.

Hank, The Baseball Dog

Hank's story is something of a Cinderella fairy tale. He was a skinny stray with matted fur when he wandered into the ball, er, well, ballgame. It was spring training in Arizona to be precise. It was the Milwaukee Brewers' training field. The team took to the scruffy little fur ball and, without having to try out, he became a team member.

Mythical 'Baku' Is The Real Deal, Residing A Mile Higher Than The Rest

With a wild population of 2,000, a Malyan Tapir might be considered endangered, but with the mythical name of 'Baku' (BAH-koo), one wonders if this rare species might have arrived on the planet with some very unique supernatural powers? According to Japanese folklore, Baku are other-wordly creatures that were known to devour the nightmares of children and protect them from evil.

Birding Transitions From Flights Of Fancy To High-Tech Enterprise

n my post, "'Big Year' Birders Count More Than Four & Twenty Blackbirds," I talked about the famous birders of our day. I researched some of the greats like the "legendary human bird-dog" Sandy Komito, and learned of his bird-watching prowess and how many of his techniques became 'best practices' for birders the world over.

Pet Tortoise Lost 32 Years Ago Found Alive In An Upstairs Room

That's not a lost pet, THIS is a lost pet! Manuela, a red-footed tortoise and beloved pet of the Almeida family of Rio de Janeiro, went missing in 1982 but she didn't go far: the family finally discovered her in a furniture-choked attic room having survived on termites for over 30 years.

The Pet Collective's 'Twenty Fur' Debuts With Jack Bowwow Barking Up A Storm

Forget Jack Bauer's 24 -  there's a new agent in town that's dog-gone funnier - and he gets to the point a lot quicker! His mission opens with "the following takes place between 2:58PM and 3:00PM - events occur in dog years." Apparently a threat was issued against CTU (Canine Terrier Unit) that cats were dumping chocolate into the water supply. It's now up to "Jack Bowwow" to save the day --erhh, the next 2 minutes. . .

Hey Dude, Where's My Hotel? Residence Inn Recruits Giraffe For Commercials

Having worked domestically and internationally as a director of marketing with Marriott Hotels for years, I can honestly say (perhaps with prejudice), this hotel chain outshines its competition when it comes to advertising. The Residence Inn, one of their long-term-stay brands is continuing that tradition into the 21st Century, with the introduction of "Dude," the frequent-traveling giraffe.

Customers Are Swarming To Buy This Street Vendor's Fresh Rice Cakes

Every once in a while the worlds of people and animals meet in a weird, wild and wonderful way. Such a scene recently occurred on a sunny street in Shanghai, China as a hard-working street food seller diligently prepared dough for her delicious mochi rice cakes, blissfully oblivious to the ominous buzzing of hundreds of swarming bees.
