Two elephants support a stranded eighteen-wheel truck in danger of tipping over in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana in this handout photo When an 18-wheeler truck became stranded by the side of a Louisiana road, two elephants inside came to the rescue.

Lombardy, the new Caspian for caviar

Lombardy, the new Caspian for caviar With pools 85 times the size of the nearby pitches where Rugby Calvisano plays, the company Agro Ittica Lombarda is putting this northern Italian town on the map again -- as the world's top caviar producer. The world's most prized caviar comes from wild sturgeon in the Caspian Sea. Agro Ittica was the first sturgeon farmer in Europe and well positioned in 1998 when under CITES, the international convention to protect endangered species, fishing of the Caspian sturgeon was restricted, then banned outright in 2010. While most consumers associate caviar with Russia, Agro Ittica points out that sturgeons were historically found in many parts of the world, including Italy.


Washington goose poop prompts officials maybe to let the dogs out

File photo of Canada Geese fly by the U.S. flags at the base of the Washington Monument, in Washington The U.S. Park Service is weighing using dogs to drive off Canada geese that each foul the U.S. capital's National Mall with up to three pounds (1.4 kg) of droppings a day, the agency said on Tuesday. The Park Service is considering using border collies to harass the large and growing population of Canada geese from tourist draws like the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, the Washington Monument grounds and John F. Kennedy Hockey Fields. The droppings damage pumps and filters of the Reflecting Pool, degrade the park and are a potential public health hazard, the Park Service said in a statement. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said that local populations of Canada geese were increasing rapidly throughout the lower 48 U.S. states.

In 1998, in one of my first real experiences in the tropics, I volunteered as a research assistant to track tapirs in Corcovado National Park. As the months wore on, I watched as the forest understory withered and the creek beds dried up. But that year, the effects of El Niño were more extreme.


Poachers slaughter 30 elephants in DR Congo

File photo shows an African elephant in the Waly Bai area of the Nouabale Ndoki National Park, Republic of Congo, on May 22, 2012 Ivory-hungry poachers have killed 30 elephants in a Congolese national park in the past two weeks, park authorities said Monday, adding that the culprits were likely Sudanese militia. News of the Garamba National Park slaughter came as wildlife experts warned at a major summit in Botswana that elephants could become extinct with a few decades if poaching continues. Sudanese raiders are suspected of killing the endangered pachyderms, conservation director at African Parks Jean Marc Froment said. "We have a group of north Sudanese coming inside the park, spreading in small groups and during 15 days they killed 30 elephants," said Froment, whose group co-manages Garamba National Park, located in the northeast of the Democratic Republic of Congo.


Humans Butchered Elephants 500,000 Years Ago, Ancient Tool Suggests

Humans Butchered Elephants 500,000 Years Ago, Ancient Tool Suggests Stone tools that are half a million years old have been unearthed in Israel — and they still have traces of elephant fat clinging to them. Though anthropologists had strongly suspected that early humans used tools to break down a carcass for its muscle, fat and marrow, "there was no smoking gun to show that the stone tools were, indeed, used for these kinds of tasks," said study co-author Ran Barkai, a professor of archaeology at Tel Aviv University in Israel.

Dozen whales die after Australia stranding

A stranded pilot whale in Bunbury harbour, south of Perth, Western Australia, on March 23, 2015 Twelve whales died on Monday after stranding themselves against a rocky breakwater on Australia's west coast, with experts working hard to save another four. The pod of long-finned pilot whales got into trouble in Bunbury harbour, 175 kilometres (110 miles) south of Perth, Western Australia's Department of Parks and Wildlife said. The department's nature conservation leader Kim Williams said 12 whales had died, and six had been herded out to sea by small boats. "Unfortunately one of these whales has re-stranded and is being taken out to deeper water again, while the other three are not swimming strongly and there is a chance they will also re-strand." Williams said it was hoped that the released whales would join another pod of 15 long-finned pilot whales which has been swimming in the area all day.


Sri Lanka promotes former general who defeated Tigers to field marshal

Former army chief and defeated presidential candidate Sarath Fonseka waves at his supporters during a political rally in Colombo By Shihar Aneez COLOMBO (Reuters) - A former Sri Lankan army general who led the military to victory in a 26-year war against Tamil Tiger separatists and later served time in jail was elevated to become the nation's first five-star field marshal on Sunday. Sarath Fonseka had won a pardon in January from newly elected President Maithripala Sirisena after being convicted by the government of former President Machinate Rajapaksa of offences ranging from corruption to engaging in politics in uniform. Fonseka's promotion could help Sirisena gain the confidence of the military and strengthen the president's position versus Rajapaksa in a future election. The 64-year old veteran, dressed in his uniform, walked to a special red-carpeted stage in front of Sirisena to hear the reading of his 40 years of military achievements and receive the field marshal baton.


Nevada wildlife managers reject ban on coyote-hunting contests

A coyote walks in Yellowstone National Park Nevada wildlife managers on Friday voted down a proposal that would have banned hunts offering cash and prizes for slaughtering coyotes in competitions across Western states that conservationists decry as "killing contests." In December, California became the first U.S. state to prohibit inducements like money and merchandise for hunting events of wild animals including coyotes, foxes, bobcats and other creatures classified in the state as fur-bearers and non-game mammals. The recent push by wildlife advocates to outlaw hunting contests for wild animals like coyotes, which are considered nuisances allowed to be shot on sight in most of the West, comes as increasing numbers of competitions are held in states such as Nevada, California, Idaho, New Mexico and Oregon.


Green sea turtles recover in Florida, Mexico

In the waters of the west Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico, green turtles are found from Texas to Massachusetts, as well as the US Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico The move comes after decades of efforts to save one of world's largest breed of sea turtles, Chelonia mydas, which have been on the endangered species list since 1978. "The proposal to revise the status of green sea turtles breeding in Florida and Mexico from endangered to threatened shows that conservation is making a difference, and once again demonstrates the effectiveness of the Endangered Species Act in protecting and recovering our most at-risk species," said US Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe.

French court clears foie gras producer of cruelty

Force-feeding ducks to make foie gras is legal in France, but the European Union ruled in 2011 that birds cannot be kept in individual cages and gave farms until the end of 2015 to comply Le Roche-sur-Yon (France) (AFP) - A French court on Thursday cleared a foie gras producer accused by animal rights activists of "acts of cruelty" for the conditions in which it force-fed its birds. The case targeted one of France's best-known producers, Ernest Soulard, a company based in the western Vendee province which supplies top restaurants including Le Fouquet's and George V in Paris. It was brought by animal rights group L214, which released a video in 2013 claiming to show the conditions at farms under contract to Ernest Soulard, with ducks confined in individual cages, barely able to move. The video prompted top chefs, including multi-Michelin-starred Joel Robuchon and Britain's Gordon Ramsay, to suspend their orders with the company.

Pumped-up India braced for Tigers challenge

India's Suresh Raina dives to make the crease during the Cricket World Cup Pool B match against Zimbabwe at Eden Park on March 14, 2015 Defending champions India look to tighten their iron grip both on the World Cup and on Bangladesh when the two neighbours meet in Melbourne for a semi-final spot Thursday. India have reached the quarter-finals with six wins in six pool games, bowling out the opposition every time. They have defeated Bangladesh 24 times since their first meeting in 1998 and have lost just three -- although one of those came in the 2007 World Cup in the Caribbean which led to India's early exit. Suresh Raina, whose unbeaten 110 helped India chase down Zimbabwe's 288-run target for a hard-fought six-wicket win in their concluding pool game in Auckland last weekend, says the Indians are ready to "express themselves." It's been a marathon buildup for India in defence of their World Cup crown, starting last November for their win-less Test and one-day matches in Australia.


Mystery of Darwin's strange South American mammals solved

An artist's rendering shows the South American native ungulate Macrauchenia patachonica By Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - To 19th century British naturalist Charles Darwin, they were the strangest animals yet discovered, one looking like a hybrid of a hippo, rhino and rodent and another resembling a humpless camel with an elephant's trunk. Ever since Darwin first collected their fossils about 180 years ago, scientists had been baffled about where these odd South American beasts that went extinct just 10,000 years ago fit on the mammal family tree. Researchers said on Wednesday a sophisticated biochemical analysis of bone collagen extracted from fossils of the two mammals, Toxodon and Macrauchenia, demonstrated that they were related to the group that includes horses, tapirs and rhinos. Some scientists previously thought the two herbivorous mammals, the last of a successful group called South American ungulates, were related to mammals of African origin like elephants and aardvarks or other South American mammals like armadillos and sloths.
