    <p>Yesterday, in New York, the sister of Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev was arrested for allegedly threatening to blow someone up in what appears to be some kind of weird love triangle situation. You will, of course, remember the Tsarnaevs as the infamous terrorist duo behind the Boston Marathon bombing, which took place back in April of 2013.</p>

    A Nova Scotia mainland moose checks out the surroundings. An additional 198 hectares of land is being added to protected holdings in the region connecting New Brunswick to Nova Scotia with the goal of making it easier for the mammals to migrate and find mates.

The junior high school pupils beat a hasty retreat. "The elk felt cloistered in there in the confined space," regional police spokesman Thomas Fuxborg told The Local.

    Serious flaws have marred the province’s strategy to reduce moose-vehicle collisions, says wildlife expert Tony Clevenger. According to Clevenger, Newfoundland’s moose control policy between 2003 and 2011 was based on flawed science. And the collision mitigation methods in place at that time — public awareness campaigns, signs and brush cutting — were ineffective and poorly managed. Clevenger, a Montana State University research scientist based in Alberta, testified Tuesday in the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador as part of the ongoing class-action lawsuit involving moose-vehicle collisions. “I can see no explanation why the Newfoundland Department of Transportation and Works has...

Per Johansson says he heard a roar from his vacationing neighbor's garden in southwestern Sweden late Tuesday and went to have a look. There, he found a female moose kicking about in the tree. The animal was likely drunk from eating fermented apples. With the help of police and rescue services, the 45-year-old Johansson later managed to set the moose free in part by sawing off tree branches.
