Therapy Dogs Can Spread Superbugs to Kids, Hospital Finds 

 

Therapy dogs can bring more than joy and comfort to hospitalized kids. They can also bring stubborn germs.

Doctors at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore were suspicious that the dogs might pose an infection risk to patients with weakened immune systems. So they conducted some tests when Pippi, Poppy, Badger and Winnie visited 45 children getting cancer treatment.

They discovered that kids who spent more time with the dogs had a 6 times greater chance of coming away with superbug bacteria than kids who spent less time with the animals. But the study also found that washing the dogs before visits and using special wipes while they’re in the hospital took away the risk of spreading that bacteria.

Parrot swears at London firefighter trying to rescue it from roof 

 

A "foul-mouthed" parrot launched a four-letter tirade at a firefighter as he tried to rescue the bird from a neighbour's roof in north London.

Jessie's owner had asked for help after the multilingual Macaw parrot spent three days on the roof in Edmonton.

The RSPCA called in the London Fire Brigade (LFB) to rescue the bird.

Crew manager Atinc Horoz climbed up a ladder to save Jessie but was met with a volley of swear words from the parrot, which then flew off.

Elephants rarely get cancer thanks to 'zombie gene,' study finds 

 

Less than 5 percent of elephants die from cancer, and researchers may have finally figured out why.

According to a study from The University of Chicago, elephants produce "zombie genes" that can help protect the animal from cancer.

Here's how it works: Humans and other animals carry one copy of a "master tumor suppressor" gene. Elephants have 20 copies. Scientists found that gene can trigger a "zombie gene" to come back to life with a new purpose: killing cells in damaged DNA.

A dad and son are accused of illegally killing a family of bears and covering it up. They didn't know a camera was running. 

 

A father and son are accused of slaughtering a female black bear and her two cubs as they rested in their den in April.

Andrew Renner, 41, and Owen Renner, 18, of Palmer, Alaska, face several felony and misdemeanor charges related to illegal hunting. It is against the law to shoot a black bear with cubs in Alaska.

Alaska Wildlife Troopers, which announced the charges on Monday, said the act was caught on a motion-activated camera set up inside the den to monitor the bears as part of a study being conducted by the US Forest Service and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. The camera produced both video and audio of the encounter.

8 Things You Should Know Before Adopting a Mini Pig 

 

Like the tiny dogs in designer purses popular in the '00s, mini pigs are having a bit of a moment. But contrary to what you might think when you see one on your Instagram feed — wearing a tutu, snacking on a carrot, or generally looking adorable — pigs aren’t pink pups that oink instead of bark.

Pigs come with their own unique set of needs, behaviors, and quirks, which, for many new enthusiastic owners, comes as a big surprise. "I’d estimate that 90% of mini pigs that are bought or adopted are given up within two years," says Richard Hoyle, director of The Pig Preserve, a pig rescue sanctuary in Jamestown, Tennessee.

It Turns Out Your Love of Glitter Is Actually Bad for the Environment 

 

From glitter bombs, beards, makeup and sparkly protest signs, glitter is a mainstay of modern LGBTQ culture. But U.K. scientists are urging the government to ban it because it’s apparently very bad for the environment.

If you’ve ever spilled glitter or used any on your body, than you understand that it never really completely goes away. (That’s part of the reason that glitter is sometimes called “raver scabies.”) It’s non-biodegradable and even when it’s thrown away or washed down the drain, it still ends up in our soil and water supply where it creates even more problems.

The issue, according to Josh Gabbatiss of The Independent, is that most glitter contains a plastic called polyethylene terephthalate (or PET). The PET contained in glitter is microplastic, a word that refers to any small bits of plastic that are smaller than a fifth of an inch.

U.S. and Congolese scientists are tracking a virus. At a time when a deadly disease can cross the globe, they need to understand the mysterious monkeypox. CHASING A KILLER 
 

MANFOUETE, CONGO REPUBLIC — Along a narrow, winding river, a team of American scientists is traveling deep into the Congo rain forest to a village that can be reached only by boat.

The scientists are from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and they have embarked on this watery journey to solve a decades-old mystery about a rare and fatal disease: monkeypox.

A cousin to the deadly smallpox virus, the monkeypox virus initially infects people through contact with wild animals and can then spread from person to person. The disease produces fever and a rash that often turns into painful lesions that can feel like cigarette burns. It kills up to 1 in 10 of its victims, similar to pneumonic plague, and is particularly dangerous in children. Monkeypox is on the U.S. government list of pathogens such as anthrax and Ebola with the greatest potential to threaten human health. There is no cure.
