    Two terror fangirls from Queens who went gaga for al Qaeda and ISIS — including one who carried around Osama bin Laden’s photo — copped to bomb-building charges Friday that could land them in prison for up to 20 years. Noelle Velentzas, 31, and Asia Siddiqui, 35, could wind up in prison for 20 years after pleading guilty in Brooklyn federal court to attempting to build a weapon of mass destruction. Between 2013 and 2015, the pair plotted to set off explosives in New York. They researched how to make car bombs and visited Home Depot in Queens to browse...

    Watch out for moose who like to lick vehicles. That's a warning from the Alberta government for people visiting Peter Lougheed Provincial Park about 130 kilometres west of Calgary. Alberta Parks says moose are on the trails at Chester Lake and Burstall Pass and are coming into the trailhead parking lots to lick salt off the sides of vehicles.

    A few choice chunks from the Big Gore-Tex Northwest Mailbag, special Mildew Edition: Q: My mom, who lives in Spokane, swears she saw a moose in the backyard of her trailer park a couple weekends ago. I think she's been sipping too much schnapps and told her so. Am I out on a limb here? A: Way out, and not that you probably care about this, but that sound you hear is wood cracking. It's very possible your mom saw a moose because, according to officials with the joint Idaho/Washington Alarming Moose Statistics Information Bureau, moose numbers have "exploded" through...

    Justice of the Peace David Ortley had harsh words for a Kalispell man who was sentenced Tuesday for poaching a trophy bull moose last November. "There are people who are born and raised here who can go through their whole lives without an opportunity to legally hunt a moose like this," Ortley told Frank Wayne Campbell. Campbell, 35, pleaded guilty to one count of killing a bull moose without a license or a permit and one count of possessing an unlawfully taken moose. Those misdemeanors came on top of Campbell's guilty plea last week to felony driving under the influence....

    Russia's elk prove tough to tame By Artyom Liss BBC, Kostroma Trying to milk an elk might seem like a task for the brave or foolhardy. But it's exactly what Russian biologists are trying to master, on a remote Soviet-era farm. A domestication experiment in Kostroma, 360 kilometres (220 miles) north of Moscow, focuses on elk - one of the living symbols of Russia. The Kostroma elk farm was set up more than 40 years ago, but some of its workers admit that so far they have achieved almost nothing. As the elk are being herded away from enclosures in...

    RARE MOOSE TRIPLETS: Moose are common in Norway, but spotting a female with triplets is nothing short of a sensation. Photographer Trond Thorvaldsen spent nearly two weeks wandering in a forest north of Fredrikstad and was rewarded with these rare shots. Only 20 percent of moose mothers give birth to twins, according to retired professor Knut Solbraa, while triplets account for one in 100 births. FOLLOW THE LEADER: There's no doubt who's boss in this family, with moose calves dependent on their mothers during their first year of life. Here, they obediently follow their mama on a warm summer evening....
