Two More Target Dog Product Recalls For Possible Salmonella

The Colorado Department of Agriculture (CDA) is really on top of the dog treats going into Target stores. Last month, Kasel Associated Industries voluntarily pulled its Boots & Barkley American Beef Bully Sticks off Target shelves after an inspection by CDA revealed salmonella bacteria present in samples examined.  Yesterday, Kasel pulled two more of its dog treat products off the shelves....

Vandals Involved In Fowl Play As They Slay Pet Chickens

DeBary, Florida held a scene of horror last weekend when a person or persons unknown broke into a chicken coop and callously beheaded all of the chickens inside. Last week the Hart family had been ordered by local authorities that the birds had to go due to being against city code. They had been given two weeks to comply. To make the story even more distressing, the birds were therapy for the family's autistic son.

Studies have not backed up the theory. Without their largest predator, the krill population has increased very little.

Gina Gershon & Foursquare Mark Their Territories

Animals in the wild are analogous to the Gold Rush miners of the Wild West. They instinctively find a way to lay claim to their territory before anyone else does. Cats in particular are not that far removed from their primal nature. Down through the ages, their need to use scent to mark their territory is a way for them to communicate, and leave their calling card behind for others to take notice. But have you ever heard of a case, where a pet owner has adopted the same technique to track and locate their lost pet -- that is, actually leave their urine as a trail marker?

Dog Lays On Owners Grave For Over 6 Years

Dogs are deeply devoted to their owners in life and in death. One mixed German Shephard is taking his level of loyalty to a new level by curling up on his deceased owner’s grave each night for bed. Despite the family’s efforts to have their furry friend stay at home with them, this loyal dog is not going anywhere without the love of his life, his deceased owner.

Crocodile Hunter: The Next Generation

At Australia Zoo history seemed to be repeating itself as eight-year-old Robert Irwin took center stage earlier this month. He was walking in his late father's footsteps as he fed the crocodiles in front of a crowd of zoo patrons and his mother. It was his first foray into the public eye on his own.

Despite being cute enough to have inspired one of the most popular cartoon characters in history, mice have long been vilified for their role in spreading plague and increasing famine. Not without just cause. The financial effect can be more direct -- just ask one man in Missouri.
