What else can be done?
Apply human brain cells to come up with the list of 1000+ things that can be done*, accepting that you may be the sole person who thinks that anything should be done.

I hope they catch those who perpetrated this extreme animal cruelty on the minks by releasing them by making the sentence not for one count, but one count per animal served consecutively.

Consider if this person is willing for this punishment, is that person even sane. If not sane will anyone listen to their message? Should anyone listen to the ravings of insanity?




*Circulate a ballot proposition banning it comes to mind. Propositions 2 and 12 in California come to mind.

‘Squirrels Have Gone Wild’ Celebrating An Acorn Surplus

Every three to six years, oak trees drop an excessive amount of acorns, surprising Chicago-area squirrels with a harvestable feast.

Luckily for oak trees, squirrels are terrible at remembering where they’ve hidden their acorns, LaMontagne said.

“Sometimes squirrels will store acorns in the ground and cover them up with some leaves, then forget about them,” LaMontagne said. “So they’re actually helping out the trees by dispersing their seeds.”

Just a warning for the terrorists tourists, they're about about already (even up here in the cool country).

Snake catcher warns of more venomous snakes with warmer weather and El Niño.


So watch where you step and remember that we have 21 of the top 25 world's most venomous. ;-)

Cheers.

They still want to bring back a dog with a pouch.

Scientists have extracted RNA from the extinct Tasmanian tiger*. So, could it be resurrected in the future?


*Note: The "Tasmanian tiger" name is also another misnomer as it also covered the whole continent, and then some, and is properly called a Thylacine.

Cheers.

It seems that our salties have the hots for the visiting Singapore Armed Forces.

Crocodile sex frenzy triggered by Chinook helicopters and thunder in central Queensland.

The heavens flash in galvanised brilliance as a hulking torso slips from the murk, lifts a lipless snout and bellows.

Peals of thunder clang against growls so brutally bottomless they seem to resonate through every bone and sinew in the creature's frame.

It's a terrifying duet – more of a shouting match between nature and her most enduring offspring than any sort of call-and-response refrain.

And it's lighting a bonfire in the big bull's loins.

This electrical storm is a pure, unadulterated aphrodisiac for the crocodile, but the sex frenzy that ensues is a bland romp compared to the all-out bacchanalia that follows a later visit from a low-flying Chinook helicopter.

There's something in the vibrations that sends these captive crocs into the throes of orgiastic ecstasy – and experts are puzzled about the reason why.....


....The Singapore Armed Forces regularly hold bilateral military training operations in the Shoalwater Bay Training Area about 100 kilometres north of Rockhampton, and its pilots use the crocodile farm as a marker point to change course mid-flight.

"We had a big Chinook that came down low because the guys wanted to take some pictures of the crocodiles," Mr Lever says.

"They were hanging out the door … and of course, Chinooks have got a big thump, thump, thump, like that."

The ensuing debauch would have made Dionysus blush.

"All of the big males got up and roared and bellowed up at the sky, and then after the helicopters left they mated like mad," Mr Lever says.

"There's something about the sonic waves that really gets them stirred up.".....
As if we didn't have enough crocs about already.

Cheers.

[quote]Bobi, known as the world's oldest dog ever, dies at age 31Now I must ask, do you actually read what has been previously posted here?

Especially the previous post?

I'm sorry about asking that, but you do re-post some links that have been done earlier, but this 1 was you shouldn't have missed as it was just the post before with the same link. ;-)

Cheers.

It's just down the road from here experts have found that it is not an albino.

Rare white platypus in Gwydir River near Armidale is leucistic, researchers find.

It's that time of the year again.

Firefly season begins in NSW as bioluminescent beetles take flight in mating display.


These can be seen pretty all along the whole of the base of the eastern escarpment in the rain forests that grow along it.

Cheers.
