Gene mutation explains why some dogs work for treats

Scientists have discovered a gene associated with canine obesity after studying Labrador retrievers Scientists have discovered a genetic mutation that appears to make certain dogs, like Labrador retrievers, extra motivated by food and treats and also more likely to be obese, a study said Tuesday. "We've found something in about a quarter of pet Labradors that fits with a hardwired biological reason for the food-obsessed behavior reported by owners," said lead author Eleanor Raffan, a veterinary surgeon and geneticist at the University of Cambridge. Researchers first identified the variation, which occurs in a gene called POMC, in a group of dogs that included 15 obese and 18 lean Labrador retrievers.

France bans most foie gras production for three months

France bans most foie gras production for three months France's foie gras production has ground to a halt for the next three months, but the reason behind the ban probably isn't what you think. SEE ALSO: Sacré bleu! Restaurants in France now have to give out doggy bags Foie gras producers in 18 départements in south west France will be banned by the Ministry for Agriculture from having any ducks or geese in their factories and slaughterhouses from this week until Aug. 15, bringing a halt to 71% of the national production of foie gras.  While animal rights campaigners have long been calling for a ban on the French delicacy — made from fattened duck or goose liver — the halt is down to an unprecedented bird flu epidemic that's hit southwestern France.  In November 2015, a highly virulent strain of the H5N1 virus was found at a chicken farm in the Dordogne region of France, prompting an intervention by veterinary watchdogs.  H5N1 is lethal for birds, but — unlike other forms of flu — it does not typically spread between people. Humans only contract the virus if they come into close contact with sick or dead poultry infected with the virus.  The ban will have a heavy impact on France's agricultural industry; with breeders claiming the production halt will amount to a loss of €130 million ($115 million).  "This interruption of business will cause cash flow difficulties, additional salary costs linked to the partial lay-offs of approximately 4000 employees, and fixed charges that must be paid despite the stop in business and income," Marie-Pierre Pé — general secretary of foie gras producers association Cifog — told Le Figaro . France's Ministry for Agriculture announced in January that it will provide compensation for producers to the amount of the estimated losses.  The long-term consequences of the three-month ban will likely take a toll on the price of foie gras, according to foie gras producer Christophe Barrailh.  Barrailh told Le Figaro  that there will be nine million fewer ducks on the national market, resulting in a noticeable price hike.

Circus elephants' retirement home promises pampered life

An elderly elephant named Mysore gets a pedicure at the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Center for Elephant Conservation in Polk City, Florida on March 8, 2016 When Mysore performed in the Ringling Brothers' traveling circus, she waltzed, she hooked her trunk onto another elephant's tail, and she stood on her hind legs in a line for a trick known as the long mount. Now at the age of about 70 -- and one of the oldest Asian elephants in the world -- Mysore is retired at the circus's refuge in central Florida, where she gets weekly pedicures, daily baths, naps on a giant dirt pile, eats ground-up hay and more than six loaves of wheat bread a day. "Boy, she loves the bread," says Janice Aria, the director of animal stewardship at the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Center for Elephant Conservation, where Mysore arrived in 2006.

Kenya torches world's biggest ivory bonfire to save elephants

A ranger stands in front of burning ivory stacks at the Nairobi National Park on April 30, 2016 Eleven giant pyres of tusks went up in smoke Saturday as Kenya torched its vast ivory stockpile in a grand gesture aimed at shocking the world into stopping the slaughter of elephants. Lighting the fire in Nairobi's national park, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta demanded a total ban on trade in ivory to end the "murderous" trafficking and prevent the extinction of elephants in the wild. "The height of the pile of ivory before us marks the strength of our resolve," Kenyatta said, before thrusting a burning torch onto the ivory.

The 33 lions, with names such as Zeus and Shakira, were freed after the use of wild animals in circuses was outlawed in Peru in 2011 and Colombia in 2013.

Animal rights group takes ostrich fight into Prada

Manager of international operations for PETA, Ashley Fruno, displays a sign next to paper cut-outs of ostriches in front of a Prada store, during a protest in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on April 19, 2016 Animal rights group PETA said Thursday it has acquired shares in Prada to pursue its protest over ostrich leather handbags from inside the luxury fashion group. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) said the move followed an investigation which revealed that ostriches as young as one were being slaughtered in South Africa to produce the "goose bump" leather the company uses for its costly bags. "Every Prada goose bump bag means a young ostrich has been turned upside down in a stunner then ejected to have their throats cut and be plucked in a miserable and terrifying slaughter," said PETA's Mimi Bekhechi.


25 dogs who clearly love hugs

25 dogs who clearly love hugs Science says "don't hug your dog." And by science we mean one person, who happens to have a degree, who looked at lots of pictures on the Internet. The question of whether or not hugging your dog causes them stress came from an op-ed from Stanley Coren on Psychology Today , earlier in April, who claimed that the act of hugging and immobilizing your dog and can give them severe anxiety. SEE ALSO: It's National Hug Day, but please don't hug me "Dogs are technically cursorial animals , which is a term that indicates that they are designed for swift running," Coren wrote in his op-ed. "That implies that in times of stress or threat the first line of defense that a dog uses is not his teeth, but rather his ability to run away." Some people, seeing Coren's observations published on Psychology Today took this as a clear-cut, data-backed study, when, in fact, the only research Coren conducted was visual clues he personally picked up from pulling pictures from the Internet. "Fortunately for me, the Internet abounds with photographs of people and their pets...I decided to look at a random sample of 250 such pictures," Coren wrote. While it's true that dogs are not, in fact, children, and that you should never squeeze a puppy (or anyone) to the point of discomfort, Coren's dog study is by no means proof that all pups hate hugs.  "This is interesting preliminary data which might serve as a good starting point for a formal study. But it's important to note that (to my knowledge) this is not a peer-reviewed empirical paper so I would caution against any firm conclusions before the work can go through this important part of the scientific process," Evan MacLean, co-director of Duke's Canine Cognition Center, wrote in an email to The Washington Post . For a rebuttal to Coren's op-ed, Mashable has taken the liberty of also looking around the Internet for dogs hugging. To our astonishment, we found some very different results.
