  • Fanged mouse-deer identified after vanishing for a generation

    Lost to the outside world for a generation—and feared extinct—a small deer-like species with tiny fangs has been photographed tiptoeing through a dry lowland forest in southern Vietnam... The silver-backed chevrotain, also known as the Vietnamese mouse-deer, is about the size of a large rabbit, with a silver sheen on its rump. The creatures have tusk-like incisors, visible in the new photographs of the animals. Because chevrotains lack horns or antlers, and the fangs are especially long in males, scientists think the males use them to compete for territory and mates.

    There is a really weird sound that has been going on for about 30 minutes. It sounds like harmonics in the atmosphere - there are three notes. It’s completely separate from the jets coming from the airport. Can anyone else hear it? I heard it Thursday evening, also. What is it?

    SUDBURY -- A pair of "spirit moose" has once again been spotted along a northern Ontario highway, as the elusive animals returned to the same area where they captured national attention late last year. Sightings of the pair of white moose have been reported online over the last two weeks, showing the cow (female moose) and a calf grazing along the side of Highway 101.

    Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Authorities in Wyoming said they had to use a Taser to subdue a moose so they could disentangle its antlers from a resident's hammock. The Sublette County Sheriff's Office said deputies and Wyoming Game and Fish personnel responded to a residence this week where a bull moose was reported to be caught in a hammock hanging from a tree. "Due to the nature of the entangled animal and the proximity to hunting season, a tranquilizer would render the animal not harvestable and inedible," the sheriff's office said. The deputies used a Taser to subdue the moose...

So far, police have declined to comment publicly on a possible motive for the...

  • Why Does the Federal Government Have 1.4 Billion Pounds of American Cheese Stockpiled?

    FEE ^ | March 5, 2019 | FEE
    Rather than reduce dairy subsidies, the USDA has been paying to have surplus milk made into cheese. In the 1930s, the U.S. federal government established dairy subsidies to bail out America’s dairy farmers from the Great Depression. Managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, those same subsidies are still in effect today, where they have underwritten a massive surplus of milk in the U.S. dairy industry that far exceeds the appetites of over 327 million Americans to consume it. But rather than reduce the subsidies to reduce the surplus to more reasonable levels, the USDA is instead paying the U.S....

    They had a habit of targeting banks in disguises. Over three months last year, the two young women went to four of them in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Once they dressed as nuns. Other times they wore hijab head coverings. Twice, they fled banks empty handed. At another, they tried to pry open an ATM machine with a screwdriver. They did not complete the withdrawal. They actually robbed a Spencer Savings branch in Garfield, New Jersey, at gunpoint, on Sept. 27, 2017. Their take was $2,900. Now, Melisa Aquino Arias, 23, of Passaic and Swahilys Pedraza-Rodriguez, 19, of New Haven,...

    Doctors, staff and patients at a hospital in Alaska’s largest city got the surprise of a lifetime when a large moose wandered inside for a quick snack. Video footage captured Monday by a worker at Alaska Regional Hospital in Anchorage shows the moose poking around some greenery near an entrance before it starts gazing in the camera’s direction. “Didn’t think we’d have a pet moose,” Stephanie Hupton, who works in billing at a physical therapy office inside the hospital and captured the footage, told the Associated Press. She told KTUU that she started recording after a patient mentioned to security...

The deputies hatched a plan. “They lured him back home with Doritos one of our deputies had in her lunch bag,” the statement said. “They made a trail and he followed.” “We were able to put him back in and secure the gate,” Deputy Ponce said. “It was fun!”

    Residue on 7,200 year old pottery found in Croatia has pushed back the dawn of cheese making in the Mediterranean. The find resets the timeline of agriculture in the region, with fermented dairy products being made a mere five centuries after milk was first stored. But its innovation was more than just a culinary milestone for dairy connoisseurs – it could have been a life saver. … Archaeological data shows people have been growing crops and raising livestock in the region for roughly 8,000 years.

    What can be said about Stinking Bishop that hasn’t been said a million times before? We’ve wanted to include a feature on this legendary cheese for a while now but it’s become so famous that most cheese lovers are fully aware of the story: Charles Martell first produced his perry-washed rind cheese in 1972 on Laurel Farm, in Dymock, Gloucestershire by chance: he didn’t set out to make cheese, it came about as a sideline while conserving the rapidly diminishing breed of Gloucestershire cows. When it appeared in the Wallace and Gromit film, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit in which...
