Dog Mauls 9-Year-Old Boy To Death Inside Holiday Caravan, Owner Under Investigation 

 

A nine-year-old boy vacationing with his family in Tencreek Holiday Park in Looe, England, was mauled to death by a dog inside a caravan.

Frankie Macritchie, from Plymouth, about 22 miles away, was killed Saturday after he was left with a family friend’s dog. His mother was visiting another mobile home parked near the area. "We believe that Frankie was alone in a caravan with the dog as he was attacked, whilst the adults that he was on holiday with were in an adjacent unit. There was sound of a disturbance and sounds of distress coming from the caravan. Immediately on hearing that, members of the public ran towards it and attempted to render first aid to Frankie,” Detective Superintendent Mike West told the Telegraph.

The police responded to the scene at around 5 a.m. local time (12 a.m. EDT), and found the victim in an unresponsive state. The boy was declared dead at the scene.

Ask Amy: Recovering mom doesn't want dog at home 

 

Dear Amy: For the past 2 ½ years my son (now 9) has been asking for a dog. I’ve been saying no because while I like dogs, I prefer them in other people’s houses.

I didn’t want to take on the considerable expense and care for a dog.

Four months ago, I had a brain aneurysm. Thankfully, I am OK and recovering. However, during my recovery in the hospital I thought I was dying and that it would be a good idea for my son to have a dog to love and care for in the event that I did die.

I was coming off of anesthesia and on a lot of pain medication. I feel confident in saying that at the time, I was not in my right mind.

Dogs, Like People, Tend to Stay Away from 'Nasty' People Who 'Behave Negatively': Study 

 

A new study shows that dogs are more likely to avoid people exhibiting unhelpful behavior towards their owners

Dogs really are man’s best friend.

Researchers from Japan’s Kyoto University have found that dogs “are extremely sensitive to social signals from humans,” and quickly learn to “stop trusting” people who “behave negatively” towards their owners.

As part of the study, researchers divided 54 dogs into three different groups, with each group participating in a slightly different variation of the same interaction.

Ghosts? Scents?: Scotland Stumped Why Numerous Canines Have Jumped from 'Dog Suicide Bridge' 

 

It’s a mystery that has plagued the superstitious town of Dumbarton, Scotland, since the 1950s: why do dogs jump from Overtoun Bridge?

According to The New York Times, numerous dogs — reportedly up to 600 canines — have inexplicable thrown themselves from Overtoun, which has earned the name “Dog Suicide Bridge,” and dozens have died from the subsequent fall to the rocks below.

Numerous explanations have been offered over the decades for why the bridge has seemingly compelled dogs to jump down into the gorge it covers.

“People in Dumbarton are very superstitious,” Alastair Dutton, a Dumbarton resident told The New York Times. “We grew up playing in the Overtoun grounds, and we believe in ghosts here because we’ve all seen or felt spirits up here.”

CATS SHOULD BE KILLED TO SAVE EARTH'S MOST ENDANGERED SPECIES FROM EXTINCTION, SCIENTISTS SAY 

 

Animals such as feral cats and dogs should be culled from islands around the world to save their prey from extinction, according to conservationists.

Eradicating creatures like rats, mongooses, pigs, and goats from 169 islands could save some 9.4 percent of the planet’s most-threatened animals, argue the authors of a study published in the journal PLOS One.

The world’s 465,000 islands only take up around 5.3 percent of land on Earth, yet they are home to 75 percent of known extinctions of bird, mammal, amphibian and reptile extinctions since 1500, the authors highlighted. Now, 36 percent of the world’s critically endangered species live on these pieces of land.

To arrive at their conclusion, the researchers looked at data on 1,184 highly threatened native vertebrates, as identified as critically endangered or endangered on the IUCN Red List, and 184 non-native mammals that live on 1,279 islands across the world.

Using this data, they created a list of 292 islands whose native animals would benefit from culling invasive mammals. Of these islands, the researchers highlighted 107 across 34 countries where eradication could start as soon as 2020.

Excerpt: Why are Giraffes mostly homosexual? 

 

Giraffes are beloved of evolutionary biologists for a number of reasons. They are, of course, the tallest of all living animals, and that elegant neck is the primary reason why. The origin of that beautiful neck has also been attributed to sexual selection. It is extravagant and slightly absurd, like a peacock’s tail, so it might be one of those runaway traits that we see exaggerated in males of so many sexual beasts. This is where the sex lives of giraffes gets interesting. The neck is certainly a major part of sexual and social behavior. Since 1958, the male-to-male wrestling that giraffes are often seen engaging in has been called “necking.” They curl their necks around each other and rut. It’s incredible to watch, the necks twisting and bending at almost right angles, the normal grace of these animals replaced by ungainly aggression and awkward legs, with none of the elegant power of two stags clashing antlers.

A dog potentially exposed more than 100 people to black plague in Colorado 

 

At least 116 people and 46 animals in Colorado were potentially exposed to the black plague after veterinarians struggled to diagnose a critically ill dog back in 2017.

The unusual case prompted health experts to issue an equally unusual—and perhaps startling—warning. That is, that dogs in the US may contract the deadly bacterial infection at any time of the year, and the signs may be hard to spot.

“[P]neumonic plague, although rare, should be considered in dogs that have fever and respiratory signs with potential exposure in disease-endemic areas, regardless of season and lobar [lung] distribution,” the Colorado health experts concluded. They published details of the case and their warning this week in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases.

The plague is endemic to areas in the Western United States, meaning it circulates continually. Though it’s best known for causing the catastrophic Black Death pandemic in Europe during the fourteenth century, it arrived in the States around 1900 on rat-infested steam ships. Since then it has spread to, and quietly lurked in, rural rodent populations, including rock squirrels, wood rats, ground squirrels, prairie dogs, chipmunks, mice, voles, and rabbits. Infected populations tend to pop up in parts of Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, Nevada, and New Mexico. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that in recent decades there has been an average of seven human cases documented each year, with a range of one to 17 cases.
