    FULL TITLE: The one result he didn't see coming: Rabiot the octopus - who correctly predicted every outcome of Japan's World Cup group matches - is chopped up and eaten before knockout stages An octopus who had predicted all three of Japan's group stage results at the World Cup has been turned into seafood.  Rabiot, a giant Pacific octopus, correctly tipped the result of Japan's games against Colombia, Poland and Senegal, but will not have the chance to predict the team's results in the knockout stages.  Despite his 100 per cent record so far Rabiot, who was caught in Obira,...

  • Trump's border wall would be "catastrophe" for wildlife, expert says

    President Trump’s proposed border wall has been hotly debated as a political, economic and human rights issue ever since it emerged as a signature part of his campaign platform. But it’s also a major conservation issue, wildlife biologist Jeff Corwin argues. “The impact will be huge. It will be an environmental catastrophe,” Corwin told CBS News on Wednesday. Corwin, a nature conservationist known for his television work on the cable network Animal Planet, is concerned that the wall will dramatically disrupt what has been “nature’s corridor through North and South America” for millions of years now. At least 89 endangered...
  • Terrified turkeys to fall from sky again

    Bill Bowden reported in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette this morning that they'll be dropping live turkeys out of an airplane over Yellville again this Friday and Saturday at Yellville's Turkey Trot Festival. The FAA said it doesn't get into animal cruelty issues (and you can be sure the local prosecutor has been bullied to silence by the locals on the issue). As long as the pilot, Mountain View pharmacist Dana Woods, doesn't drop turkeys over a crowd, the regulators say there's nothing they can do. Woods has been smirking about this cruel practice for years as the Phantom Pilot. There was...

    Two Franciscana dolphins were ripped from the waves near an Argentinan resort last week, then manhandled to shore, where they were passed around a clutching mob seeking cute selfie moments. In the process, at least one of the intelligent, playful cetaceans died from the experience. Franciscana, or La Plata, dolphins are unable to spend as long out of the water as their larger brethren. “At least one of these dolphins suffered a horrific, traumatic and utterly unnecessary death, for the sake of a few photographs,” a spokesperson from the World Animal Protection group told ABC in Australia, condemning the despicable...

    The UK may not have the reputation for the most exciting or adventurous cuisine in the world, and looking at this array of astonishing edible 'treats' from around the globe, it seems we have along way to go. If any of these nibbles takes your fancy you may have go further afield than the shelves of your local Waitrose or Sainsbury's to see the likes of boiled rat, armadillo or caramelised locust. So those with a strong constitution should make their way to far-flung places such as Malawi, the Ivory Coast or North Korea where some of these crazy snacks...

    Deadliest Catch was nominated this season for four Emmy's. "Deadliest Catch" went up against "Myth Busters" for Outstanding Reality Program and won. "Deadliest Catch" also captured the Emmy for Outstanding Cinematography, Outstanding Picture Editing and Outstanding sound mixing. This is great news for fans (and cast members and producers and editors and cameramen) who've been watching the show for a long time. The creative arts industry has affirmed and acknowledged the intelligent and inspiring television that most of its viewers have seen as the show developed into a more intense interpersonal drama from a random story of water cowboys searching...

    A hard-working cafe owner has been ordered to tear down an extractor fan - because the smell of her frying bacon 'offends' Muslims. Planning bosses acted against Beverley Akciecek, 49, after being told her next-door neighbour's Muslim friends had felt 'physically sick' due to the 'foul odour'.

    TINKER with the genetics of salmon and maybe you create a revolutionary new food source that could help the environment and feed the hungry. Or maybe you're creating what some say is an untested "frankenfish" that could cause unknown allergic reactions and the eventual decimation of the wild salmon population. The US Food and Drug Administration hears both arguments this week when it begins a two-day meeting on whether to approve the marketing of the genetically engineered fish, which would be the first such animal approved for human consumption. The agency has already said the salmon, which grows twice...

    SAN FERNANDO DE APURE, Venezuela ? As dusk fell on the tropical wetland crawling with iguanas and small crocodilian caimans, Jos? Ismael Jim?nez pointed his harpoon at a rodent about the size of a Labrador retriever. With aim that comes from years of practice, he landed his spear on the back of its head. Farmhands turned hunters stalking the wild capybara, reputedly the world?s largest rodent, on Saturday on Hato Santa Luisa. One of them hurled a harpoon at a wounded capybara. The meat is then salted and dried. But this hunt was not about ridding the country?s southern plains...

    Something horrifying is happening in the waters off Brazil. Sharks are attacking surfers near the city of Recife at an unprecedented rate, scaring the locals and forcing the government to ban the sport at one of it’s most popular beaches. Over the past decade, 45 people have been attacked by bull sharks in the region, 16 were deadly. And while these attacks are not unheard of, the fact the port city had recorded only one in the 75 years prior, is perplexing. Are the sharks rebelling? Have they had enough of people overcrowding their home? Or is there something less...

    Prince Henrik, the prince consort of Denmark, has shocked animal lovers by declaring that dog meat - fried or grilled - is one of his favourite dishes.The 72-year-old prince, a Frenchman by birth, said his penchant for dog meat had developed from the time he spent growing up and studying in Vietnam. But the disclosure, made in an interview with a Danish magazine, has shocked the nation, particularly as the prince is the honorary president of the Danish Dachshund Club. He has several dachshunds and, despite publishing a cookery book called Ikke Altid Gaselever (Not Always Goose Liver), has even...

    Angry islanders vent their fury yet again The placard expressing Bali's fury over the latest bombings was gruesomely witty. As Hindus prepared to celebrate a religious holiday, demonstrators called for terrorists to be slaughtered and eaten as part of the festivities. "Menu for Galongan: satay made from the Bali bombers," read the sign, published on the front page of the newspaper Radar Bali. In an insult to any Muslim, it said the meal of skewered meat should be served with coconut sauce and pig's blood. "Indonesia is a nest of terrorists, please kill the bombers as soon as possible," another...

    BROWNSVILLE, Texas -- A trio of animal-rights protesters didn't find any welcome mat when they stopped at a KFC, but the restaurant manager did turn on the sprinkler system for them. Manager John Olivo turned the sprinklers on full blast to soak the protesters from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals who were standing by the curb. They were campaigning for more humane methods of killing. The protesters, including one in a chicken suit, were followed by a man with a microphone who said he eats beef
