The Tibetan Mastiff is absolutely amazing:

















Have to get one someday. Although, our Neapolitan Mastiff is just as fierce, sans giant mane of fur.

Spent a full year interacting with the Raccoons in Victoria B.C.
Gods gifts.




This little guy was my favorite. He had a funny way of grunting with every move he made. Sounded like a .40 2 stroke R/C plane revving and idling. I called him GruffyGuy. Talky little dude seen here with his sister. After rescuing their Mom from pecking Crows, got to know 16 of them.

Pond safari: Photographer captures incredible images of the microscopic creatures found inside a SINGLE drop of water


These slimy creatures may look like aliens from another planet but they are actually the life teeming inside a single drop of pond water.

The colourful organisms were captured using a photography technique called high-definition microscopy in a lab in Ohio by photographer Peter Matulavich.

The pond safari pictures show everything from a single-celled paramecium organism moving through bacteria to a defecating 10mm creature called hydra and a cluster of Euglena Protozoa that are seen in such high numbers they have been known to make entire ponds and puddles appear green or red.

I would stick with a 30 cal of some sort though. A 30-30 is a good choice for an animal that is found in brush and not very often in the open. The 30-30 is a bushwhacker of a round.

I hunt wild hogs with my good ol' 94 Win. in classic 30-30.
I load my own cartridges and use a 150gr. bullet as opposed to the 170gr. bullet usually found in this caliber.
I don't know if this really has a benefit or not, I just like the load.

You really can't beat a 94 for brush work.
They're light, easy to point, quick to cycle and have more than enough stopping power at brush ranges.

Zoo Shoots "Surplus" Giraffe in Head, Feeds it to Other Animals

Despite considerable protests, a Danish zoo has killed a two-year-old "surplus" giraffe called Marius, whose only crime was being in the wrong place (Copenhagen) at the wrong time (ever).

Warning, graphic image below.

News of Marius's impending execution by bolt gun prompted thousands to sign a petition in opposition, and members of the zoological community from around the world to offer to take him in, but the Danish zookeepers could not be dissuaded.

It's all part of the circle of life, they said. The completely natural circle of life in which giraffes live inside cages. Bengt Holst, the scientific director at the zoo said disposing of Marius was necessary because his genes were shit, and it wouldn't benefit the greater giraffe community to have him procreate.

[man...people are getting soft. Endless tears for animals, not a single tear for genuine human victims. Sympathy only for animals and criminals.]

Very true and when it comes to pets it's even more fanatical gnashing.
