Dog Catches Fish From Lake

Dog Catches Fish From Lake

Uncategorized
There’s a reason dogs have been so close to humans for thousands of years. They are great hunters, and together, people and dogs are an powerful force in the wild.  This dog isn’t necessarily a hunting dog, just the family pet. But instinct is difficult to suppress, and she caught a fish on her first try when she was out by the lake with her people friends.  She obediently dropped the fist instead of enjoying the meal, only for her human friend to accidently knock it back into the water. D’oh.   Read more: http://www.viralviralvideos.com/2012/06/25/dog-catches-fish-from-lake/
The Extraordinary Land-Walking Octopus of Northern Australia

The Extraordinary Land-Walking Octopus of Northern Australia

Uncategorized
Octopuses are marine animals that live and breath underwater, so at low tide one would expect them to be imprisoned in rocky pools. However, this extraordinary species found in Northern Australia is like no other octopus, and land is no obstacle when hunting for crabs.

Drone Captures Huge Pod of Humpbacks Feeding in Alaska

Uncategorized
A drone captures a large pod of Humpback Whales feeding in the pristine waters of Alaska. The aerial drone footage, captured by AkxPro, shows a seagull’s POV of the scene. The humpbacks are using a coordinated hunting technique known as ‘bubble net feeding’. They start by making incredibly high-pitched noises which drives the fish to the surface. They then blow air bubbles (which act as a wall) to surround and concentrate their prey before they all rise to the surface with mouths open for feeding.

Man Punches Kangaroo In The Face To Rescue His Dog

Uncategorized
What a horrible headline. But somehow this video of a man boxing a kangaroo went uber-viral, resulting in about five million views within the first two days. Maybe it is because of the backstory to it – or because of the catching headline. Or the Australian accent… “A group of hunters got together to help a young cancer sufferer (terminal diagnosis) with his last wish of catching a 100 kg (220 pound) wild boar with his dogs. One day while hunting one of the highly trained dogs was chasing some pigs by scent and collided with a big buck kangaroo that then held and wrestled the dog by its protective gear (boars have tusks like knives), the owner was horrified that his dog or the kangaroo would get hurt and run in to save both parties.” Read more: https://www.viralvir...

When you're a hunter who kills and cooks your own food, the last thing you expect is for your catch to come back to life at some point during the cooking process. That goes double if you happen to be into hunting and cooking rattlesnakes. Sadly, this is a thing that actually happens sometimes. Take, for example, what happened to the guy in this video. He caught a couple of rattlesnakes and was preparing to cook them when one seemingly came back to life...despite being headless and skinless. Mildly NSFW, especially if you're about to eat lunch. (via Reddit)When this happens with dead animals, it's usually because someone put salt on them, which can make the nerve endings fire and cause twitching.

Cougars could be slowly skulking their way across the U.S., leaving their western confines and heading eastward, according to a new studypublished in the journalEcological Modelling. Before you whip out the pepper spray, were talking about the cats, not sassy middle-aged women. And if predictions are correct, this might mean that the Midwest is repopulated within just a few decades, which could have implications for wildlife conservation and predator management. Cougars, also called pumas and mountain lions, used to call the Midwest their home, but they were wiped out more than a hundred years ago thanks to a combination of hunting and habitat loss from development. But since 1990 more and more have been popping up further east, with more than 170 confirmed appearances in the Midwest betw...

Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have traded paint a few times as they race toward the Democratic nomination, with democratic socialist Sanders consistently pushing Hillary Clinton to the right. The reliablyliberal Sanders seems to be all over the road when it comes to guns and gun control, though, giving Clinton some breathing room to talk guns during her visit to New Hampshire today. Raise your hand if you can picture Hillary Clinton firing a gun. For someone who reportedly respects the role of guns in American culture, Clinton hassaid in debates that Australian-style gun control(handgun confiscation) is “worth considering.” That sounds like common sense gun control to us; keeping firearmslocked in a gun locker’s a good idea too.

How Diving Seabirds Hunt Fish

How Diving Seabirds Hunt Fish

Uncategorized
Gannets are large sea birds that can be found in the North Atlantic as well as the coastal seas of Southern Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The birds fish by diving from a height into the sea and pursuing their prey underwater. The technique, known as plunge diving, allows birds to use the energy from the momentum of the dive to combat natural buoyancy (caused by air trapped in plumage). Gannets can dive from a height of 30 meters (98.4 ft), reaching speeds of 100km/h (62 mph) as they strike the water. Gannets have a number of adaptations that allow them to perform such a technique: – they have no external nostrils and breathe through the opening in their epiglottis (in the mouth) instead; – they have air sacs in their face and chest under their skin which act like bubbl...

It's estimated that humans came up with the basic blueprint for bows and arrows around 64,000 years ago. While it was once an innovative and high-tech weapon, it's now considered rather primitive, especially when compared to some of the hunting tools we employ today...but that doesn't mean it doesn't have value.For one, just about any person can make a bow an arrow using things found in the woods. Watch as YouTuber Primitive Technology demonstrates this very old-school DIY: You'll definitely want to learn this skill...once the zombies come and we're forced to live in the woods, this'll be the only means of defending yourself.

Lions Added To The Endangered Species Act In The U.S.

Importing a lion trophy into the United States just got a lot harder. The government has just announced that lions will now be under the protection of the Endangered Species Act.This will mean that hunters who wish to bring back their spoils will either be banned from doing so if they were obtained from certain countries, or will have to provide more detailed and comprehensive documentation if they were legally killed. The new protections come after a review by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) of the scientific research on lions, in which new data has found that rather than being split into half a dozen distinct populations, lions are actually only formed of two subspecies. The first, Panthera leo leo, is the most threatened and includes all those lions that live in...

After Killing Famous Lion, Internet Outrage Forces The Killer To Close His Dental Office

Cecil the lion was one of the most popular attractions at Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park – until he was killed by Walter Palmer, a dentist from the U.S. who paid $55,000 for the “pleasure” to kill the 13-year-old wildlife celebrity. The backlash from animal lovers around the world has been so strong that the dentist’s website has shut down and his office is shuttered. Palmer, a trophied archer, paid a guide to lure Cecil out of the park at night so he could be hunted. He shot and wounded Cecil with a bow, but was only able to kill him 40 hours later. Cecil was beheaded and skinned – his carcass remained unused. Not only did his hunt kill a local celebrity at the park, but, according to the Zimbabwean Tourism Authority, the hunt was illegal, and a crimin...

There’s A Reason Your Cat Shakes Its Butt, And It Has Nothing To Do With Being Funny

Uncategorized
My cat does a lot of weird things that I don't understand. However, there is one strange trait that I can explain, and that's the way he shakes his butt before pouncing. If you have cats, you've probably noticed that they like to give their rumps a good shake before pouncing to attack. I used to chalk it up to cats just being cute or funny, but as it turns out, the butt-shake is an integral part of their innate hunting instincts. From the time they are small kittens, cats shake their rears before pouncing. Why? It's all about balance, contrary to my belief that it was all for the sake of cute cat videos.

A video showing Japanese pygmy squidsplatting their prey with ink before attacking it casts doubt on existing theories about how cephalopods use their ink. Rather than squirting it as a defensive mechanism to help them escape predators, the footage suggests that it could also form part of their offensive weaponry. Numerous species have previously been observed using ink to evadethreats, although a new study in the journal Marine Biology is the first to document this type of predatory behavior. To conduct the study, researchers placed Japanese pygmy squidin tanks with three different species of shrimp, and observed their mode of attack. A total of 322 predation events were recorded, with the squids using ink as an aide on 13 of these occasions. Interestingly, the way in whic...

Hunting, whether for sport or for food, usually ends with one or more dead animals. Some people think hunting is unethical, but most hunters do have ethical codes. An idea that is commonly included in these codes is that of "fair chase," which is defined as the "ethical, sportsmanlike, lawful pursuit and taking of any free-ranging wild animal in a manner that does not give the hunter an improper or unfair advantage."When a hunter came upon a deer stuck in a fence, his ethics dictated that he not shoot the young creature. Instead, he helped it.

Legal Hunting Of Wolves May Actually Increase Poaching

The promotion of legal, government-backed culls of large carnivores is often touted as a way to balance predator-human conflict. Seemingly paradoxical, the argument goes that if the authorities can give people a chance to legally kill the animals in problem regions(for example,where wild carnivores are eatinglivestock),then the number of people taking the problem into their own hands and illegally killing the animals will drop. But does this common conservation practice actually work? This was the question researchers set out to study, focusing on the culling of wolves in the U.S. Their study claimsthat this commonly used practice doesnt work, and that in fact the opposite is true. By having legal culls, the rate of poaching actually increases. But the problem is that by it...

Regardless of whether you think the paranormal is real or not, it takes a lot of guts to be part of a ghost-hunting trip. That goes double for when you're looking in the woods versus inside an old house. At least if things get spooky in an enclosed space, you know where the exits are. In the woods, you can never be sure where the spookiness begins and ends.

One of Yellowstone National Parks most famous residents has been killed.

The speciesis covered by federal protection in 48 states in the U.S. under the Endangered Species Act. As such, wildlife officials and federal police have begun an investigationinto who killed the bear.

However, the particularly distinctive wounds on Scarface meant he was quickly recognizable, making him a longti...
African Wild Dogs Sharing Kill With The Pack Are More Efficient Than Cheetahs

African Wild Dogs Sharing Kill With The Pack Are More Efficient Than Cheetahs

Uncategorized
Instead of chasing their prey across long distances in open grass plains, African wild dogs are hunting in wooded areas using multiple short-distance, high-speed bursts. Data from GPS collars reveal that their individual success rates are low, but they share their kills with other pack members: The energy return from group feeding outweighs the cost of multiple short chases. And in this way, their strategy may be more efficient than the sheer athleticism of cheetahshunting alonein the same area. The findings are published as two papers in Nature Communications this week. Since the 19th century, African wild dogs (Lycaon pictus) have been traditionally described as highly collaborative endurance pursuit hunters: They chase large prey at relatively low speeds over many kilome...
