    Ivory poaching has led to evolution of tuskless elephants
    https://www.theguardian.com/environm...lephants-study

    Researchers looked at why female elephants in Gorongosa national park in Mozambique were frequently born without tusks, and found that the animals were in effect genetically engineered by mass poaching for ivory.

    Elephants with tusks were highly likely to be hunted during the Mozambican civil war from 1977 to 1992, when 90% of the elephant population was slaughtered by armed forces on both sides to produce ivory that was sold to finance the conflict. Those without tusks were left alone, leading to an increased likelihood they would breed and pass on the tuskless trait to their offspring.

    Owners offload dogs bought in lockdown
    https://www.theguardian.com/lifeands...hey-are-strays

    People are pretending that dogs they acquired during lockdown are strays so that rescue centres take them in, after failing to sell them online, animal rescue charities and shelters have warned.

    Figures from March revealed that more than 3.2m pets were bought by UK households during lockdown. Since Covid restrictions were lifted and people have started to return to the office, charities have reported a growing trend of people abandoning their pandemic pets as they no longer have as much time for them.

    Hope Rescue, an animal charity based in Rhondda Cynon Taf, told the BBC the number of dogs being dropped off at its rescue centre in Pontyclun was the highest in its 15-year history.

    Cướp đêm là gấu, cướp ngày là heo:

    Italian couple find burglar is endangered brown bear
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...red-brown-bear

    Annalisa Castagna and her husband, Claudio Parravano, came face-to-face with the bear on Sunday night.

    The Marsican bear had climbed on to her bedroom balcony in Pescosolido, a village in the Lazio province of Frosinone, just days after a bear was spotted bathing in the fountain of a neighbouring village.

    Castagna leapt back inside, while Parravano threw himself over the balcony to escape the animal, causing minor injuries. The bear fled, leaving its faeces on the balcony.

    The Marsican is a critically endangered subspecies of the brown bear living in the Apennine mountains that straddle Italy’s Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise regions.

    In 2019, the Italian branch of the World Wildlife Fund warned that the Marsican brown bear faced extinction. The population has dwindled during the past 25 years, with 63% of bear deaths attributed to illegal hunting or being hit by vehicles.

    Chửa hoang: condor lặn lội bờ sông

    Female California condors can reproduce without males
    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...-females-males

    The condors had reproduced through parthenogenesis – a form of reproduction in which an egg can develop into an embryo without being fertilized by a sperm.

    Parthenogenesis is derived from the Greek words for “virgin birth” and several insect species including aphids, bees and ants are known to reproduce through the process, although the phenomenon is rare in birds.

    The condor is a remarkable species that has survived from the Pleistocene era. Right now, the condor’s population growth is limited by poisoning from lead bullets, when the scavengers eat animals shot by hunters.

    Meanwhile, the bird,which has risen like the phoenix from near death, is rewriting scientific understanding.

    France orders poultry 'lockdown'
    Poultry farmers have been ordered to keep flocks indoors in a bid to stop the contagious avian disease from spreading. Europe has seen over 100 outbreaks of bird flu in recent months.


    French farmers must keep poultry flocks indoors following a new order from the government

    French authorities put the country on high alert over bird flu on Friday. The upgraded status means farmers in the country must keep poultry flocks indoors.

    It comes a week after commercial farms in the nearby Netherlands were issued a similar order.

    The poultry lockdown measure has already been in place in certain areas in France since September.

    Why has France raised the alert over bird flu?

    The order cited a "rising infection rate in migratory corridors" as the reason for raising the risk level for the entire country.

    "Since the beginning of August, 130 bird flu cases or clusters have been detected in wild animals or on farms in Europe," France's Agriculture Ministry said in a statement. It said three cases had been identified among backyard birds in northeast France.

    The ministry explained that the measure was to protect poultry farms. So far, no cases have been found among professional poultry farmers in France.

    France hopes that the lockdown will help avoid a repeat of last year, when bird flu was found in nearly 500 locations. This severely disrupted the production of foie gras from ducks in southwestern France.

    The requirement to keep flocks indoors will be adapted to different farming practices, such as free-range farming, the ministry said.

    Has bird flu hit elsewhere?

    The Netherlands on Thursday reported a new outbreak of highly pathogenic H5 bird flu among ducks at a poultry farm in the central province of Flevoland.

    To limit the spread of the disease, about 36,000 animals were culled at the farm, the Dutch agriculture ministry said.

    Britain on Wednesday declared a nationwide Avian Influenza Prevention Zone, ordering farms and bird keepers to toughen their biosecurity measures after a number of cases of bird flu were spotted in wild birds.

    Chim dai sức:

    New Zealand finally welcomes godwit two months after it was blown 2,000km back to Alaska
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...back-to-alaska

    This year, a female godwit, identified as 4BYWW by the bands on her legs, was confirmed as having made the longest flight ever recorded by a land bird. She travelled non-stop from Alaska to New Zealand, a journey of 12,200km that took eight days and 12 hours at an average speed of 59km/h.

    But one unlucky godwit, an adult male known as 4BWRB, was forced to take a large U-turn over the Pacific Ocean, finishing up back at its Alaska take-off point after 57 hours of constant flight.

    Every year, the Eastern bar-tailed godwits, or kuaka in Māori, make one of the longest avian migration flights in the world, travelling from their breeding ground in the Arctic, across the Pacific, to New Zealand.

    About 80,000 godwits arrive in New Zealand each year, and move into harbours and estuaries across the two islands. Typically, the floc
    ks are welcomed in September, sometimes to the sound of Cathedral bells.

    Three snow leopards die of Covid-19 at children’s zoo in Nebraska
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...s-zoo-nebraska

    Three snow leopards have died at the Lincoln Children’s Zoo in Nebraska of complications from Covid-19.

    The zoo began treating the leopards and two Sumatran tigers for the virus last month. The zoo said the tigers, Axl and Kumar, have made a recovery.

    Zoos across the country, including at the St Louis Zoo and the Denver Zoo, have battled Covid-19 outbreaks among their animals.

    Tề gia trị thú bình thiên hạ:

    The town besieged by armadillos
    https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/nov/15/its-like-hunting-aliens-inside-the-town-besieged-by-armadillos
    To spot armadillos in North Carolina was, at first, incongruous. The creature has been Texas’s state mammal for more than two decades, used to the baking heat of the dry, flat state. There, they’re regularly seen as roadkill or in small-scale racing events where they are made to scurry down a 40ft track.

    Armadillo meat is consumed in Central America, and to a lesser extent in the US, where it was called “poor man’s pork” in Depression-era Texas and has been tainted by the species’ connection to leprosy.

    When the first armadillo was sighted here in 2019, Bullard got a call. “I just didn’t believe it,” he said. “I thought the woman had a possum and a drinking problem.” But within a year, Bullard was spending his nights at the local golf course, speeding from hole to hole on a golf cart, killing armadillos on the greens like a sort of cross between Tiger Woods and Davy Crockett.

    Homeowners, perturbed at their lawns being torn up by the newly arrived mammals, initially deputized Bullard as a sort of armadillo bounty hunter, handing him $100 for every dead carcass he produced.

    People in the region also employ Bullard to kill feral pigs, beavers, skunks and even otters – they eat the fish that have been added to lakes for recreational fishing – as well as the armadillos.

    Wild animals live alongside us until we ruthlessly decide to unilaterally change the rules once they unknowingly cross some sort of line, such as altering the aesthetics of our gardens or simply getting in the way of our fun.
