Teenager uses Facebook to save Romania's stray dogs

Ana-Maria Ciulcu takes a dog from a street in Bucharest By Radu Marinas and Bogdan Cristel BUCHAREST (Reuters) - When French film actress Brigitte Bardot began a campaign to spare the thousands of stray dogs in Romania's capital from being put down, she did it with a $150,000 donation scheme. A similar campaign is being waged by Ana-Maria Ciulcu, a 13-year-old schoolgirl with braces on her teeth who uses Facebook to appeal to dog lovers all over Europe - and to make sure the dogs go to the right homes.

Easter Lilies Kill Cats, FDA Warns

Easter lilies are a popular decoration around this time of year, but it might be best to avoid having them in your house if you have a curious cat, the Food and Drug Administration warns. These white, trumpet-shaped flowers are toxic to feline friends who might nibble at the plants' petals and leaves. If you suspect that your cat has eaten any part of a lily or its pollen, call your veterinarian immediately, or take your cat to an emergency veterinary clinic, said Melanie McLean, a veterinarian at FDA. Even eating just a couple of leaves or licking a few pollen grains off their fur can cause cats to suffer acute kidney failure, she said.

New-look Paris Zoo rethinks 'humanimal' relationship

New-look Paris Zoo rethinks 'humanimal' relationship Paris Zoo reopens its gates on Saturday after a six-year revamp to shed its image as a traditional city zoo and change how humans see wild animals. Swept away is the zoo as a place simply to gawp at animals for being weird, exotic or dangerous -- replaced by an environment designed to appreciate their uniqueness in bigger, less crowded and more nature-mimicking enclosures. "We've invented a new zoo, whose concept is different from 20th century ones, where animals were exhibited like in some amusement park," said Thomas Grenon, head of the National Museum of Natural History, which manages the Vincennes Zoo. "This is a 21st-century zoo, which will show biodiversity and talk about it, and where the animals will live together as they do in their natural environment" -- as far as is practical, of course.

Deadly bat disease found in Wisconsin, Michigan: wildlife officials

By Brendan O'Brien (Reuters) - Bats in Wisconsin and Michigan have been infected with a disease that has killed millions of the mosquito-eating mammals elsewhere in the U.S. and could have a detrimental impact on farming and forestry, wildlife officials said on Thursday. White-nose syndrome appeared in five small brown bats collected in February and March in northern Michigan during routine surveillance, the state's Department of Natural Resources said in a statement. "Even though we've known this disease was coming, it is a disappointing day," said Dan O'Brien, a department wildlife veterinarian. Two bats in Wisconsin tested positive for the fungal disease after they were collected in a mine during winter surveillance in Grant County, near the Illinois border, where the disease was confirmed in 2012.

Do Dogs Really Feel Guilt or Shame? (Op-Ed)

Do Dogs Really Feel Guilt or Shame? (Op-Ed) Marc Bekoff, emeritus professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder, is one of the world's pioneering cognitive ethologists, a Guggenheim Fellow, and co-founder with Jane Goodall of Ethologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Bekoff's latest book is Why Dogs Hump and Bees Get Depressed (New World Library, 2013). Recently, a reader sent me an essay by Laura Moss of Mother Nature Network called "Do Dogs Really Feel Guilt?" Moss summarizes the excellent studies conducted by a renowned dog researcher, Barnard College's Alexandra Horowitz. Horowitz discovered that people are not very good at reading doggie guilt or shame — and that we often see those emotions when they're not there, when the dogs aren't feeling them or because they didn't do anything that would elicit these sorts of responses. Horowitz goes deeper into these concepts in her new edited book called Domestic Dog Cognition and Behavior.

Baby giraffe in Oklahoma zoo dies during risky last-chance surgery

By Heide Brandes OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (Reuters) - Kyah, a 6-month-old giraffe at the Oklahoma City Zoo, died on Tuesday during a risky surgical procedure being performed for the first time on a giraffe in hopes that it would save her life, a zoo spokeswoman said. A team of 12 experts assisting in the four-hour surgery was unable to repair a life-threatening condition known as persistent right aortic arch, and ultimately Kyah was euthanized in the operating room, said Tara Henson, spokesperson for the Oklahoma City Zoo. A necropsy will be performed on Kyah, who was 9 feet tall and weighed 525 pounds, to learn more about her condition, which is more frequently seen in dogs and has never before been diagnosed in a giraffe. It was conducted at an Oklahoma State University Veterinary School facility in Stillwater, north of Oklahoma City.
