    Elizabeth Ann - Hắc cước hồ: Thú nhân tạo trong Tối thế ký.




    Scientists have cloned the first U.S. endangered species, a black-footed ferret duplicated from the genes of an animal that died over 30 years ago.

    The slinky predator named Elizabeth Ann was born in a Colorado facility Dec. 10 and announced Thursday.


    Elizabeth Ann is a genetic copy of a ferret named Willa who died in 1988 and whose remains were frozen in the early days of DNA technology.

    Baarack, a sheep rescued in Australia with over 75 pounds of wool, is 'getting more confident every day'
    https://news.yahoo.com/baarack-sheep...135949204.html

    A sheep named Baarack received a much needed shearing after rescuers in Australia found the abandoned animal with more than 75 pounds of wool weighing it down.

    Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary, an animal rescue and sanctuary on a farm in Lancefield, north of Melbourne, rescued the sheep earlier this month and shared video of his transformation on TikTok that has more than 18.5 million views.

    It was "a property maintenance man who spotted Baarack in the forest that adjoined the boundary of a property he was working on. This chap then contacted us to see if we could assist Baarack," said Kelly Dinham, who works on community engagement and advocacy at the sanctuary, in an email to USA TODAY.



    Kyle Behrend, also with the sanctuary, told Reuters that it appeared that the animal was once owned, having an ear-tag that appeared to have been torn out by the thick matted fleece near his face.

    Sheep need at least yearly shearing to keep their coats light enough for the animals, otherwise it will continue to grow, Dinham told USA TODAY.

    "This is a result of domestication as the ancestor of modern sheep, the wild mouflon was a self-shedding animal whose coat/fur grew and shed in accordance with the seasons," she said.


    After rescuing Baarack, sanctuary staff gave him the long-overdue shearing and found the fleece clocked in at 35.4 kilograms, or about 78 pounds.


    Despite his heavy fleece, Baarack was actually underweight after being sheared, Dinham said.


    The wool around his face impaired his vision, too. Dinham said they found grit and debris "pooling in the gap between his cornea and the lid." And a grass seed stuck in there had caused an ulcer.


    One positive was that Baarack's hooves were in good conditions having been in the forest with rocks to run over for some time, Dinham said.

    Cattle stranded on ship in Spain must be destroyed, say vets
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...royed-say-vets

    More than 850 cows that have spent months aboard a ship wandering across the Mediterranean are no longer fit for transport any more and should be killed, according to a confidential report by Spanish government veterinarians.

    The cows have been kept in what an animal rights activist called “hellish” conditions on the Karim Allah, which docked in the south-eastern Spanish port of Cartagena on Thursday after struggling for two months to find a buyer for the cattle.

    The animals were rejected by several countries over fears they had bovine bluetongue virus. The insect-borne virus causes lameness and haemorrhaging among cattle. Bluetongue does not affect humans.

    The vets’ report, which was seen by Reuters, concluded that the animals had suffered from the lengthy journey. Some of them were unwell and not fit for transport outside of the European Union, nor should they be allowed into the EU. Euthanasia would be the best solution for their health and welfare, it said.

    The insect-borne bluetongue virus causes lameness and haemorrhaging among cattle but does not affect humans. The Spanish ministry’s report counted 864 animals alive on board the Karim Allah this week. Twenty-two cows had died at sea with two corpses still onboard, it noted, adding that the remains of the others that died were chopped up and thrown overboard during the journey.

    Masramón said although he was not an animal health technician, he did not agree with the official Spanish veterinary report released on Friday. “From what I understand, none of the diseases [noted in the report] are worth euthanizing the cattle for. They are normal after two months at seas and the animals could recover.”

    In an interview, a source close to a second cattle ship, the Elbeik, which has similarly been at sea for two months since leaving the Spanish port of Tarragona with a cargo of nearly 1,800 cows, said he was watching the Karim Allah developments closely.

    The Elbeik is currently moored off the Turkish Cypriot port of Famagusta having loaded animal fodder and straw. The source
    said that once the loading was complete, the Elbeik would probably sail to Greece to load bunker fuel for the ship.

    Asked about apparent moves by the Spanish authorities to begin unloading and killing the cattle, the source said the health problems identified by the official Spanish vet report could “easily heal”. He said the decision, if taken, to kill all the animals was “amazing”. He added: “If the animals can heal why would they want to do that?”
    Poor cows.

    Elephant kills Spanish zookeeper with one hit from trunk
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...low-from-trunk

    The female elephant weighing around 4,000kg (8,800lb) hit the 44-year-old with her trunk on Wednesday morning at the Cabarceno Natural Park near the northern city of Santander, the zoo said. The man was rushed to hospital where he died from his injuries some three hours later.

    At the time staff were cleaning the elephant stables as part of their daily duties and the elephant was with her calf in the compound.
    “We’re talking about unpredictable animals,” said Javier Lopez Marcano, the tourism minister in the regional government of Cantabria which owns the zoo.

    “The force of the strike was tremendous, of a magnitude that one could not survive.”

    Police and the zoo said they had opened an investigation. It is the first such incident in the park’s 31-year history.

    Cabarceno Natural Park is home to almost 120 animal species including wolves, tigers, lions and jaguars that live in large enclosures where one or more species co-exist.

    Last year a 46-year-old keeper was mauled by a 200-kilo gorilla at Madrid Zoo Aquarium, leaving her with two broken arms and chest and head injuries.

    Bird trafficking in Iraq
    https://www.theguardian.com/environm...cking-industry

    Bird poaching can be a lucrative business in Maysan, which is located between the Ahwar marshes – a Unesco world heritage site – and the border with Iran, putting it at the forefront of bird trafficking. The region is a poor one and the illegal trafficking of birds is a lifeline for many families.

    In his small bricked house in Amara’s suburbs, Ali admits selling various species of birds, mostly to rich Iraqis or foreigners from the Gulf states. “They travel all the way here from countries such as Kuwait, Saudi Arabia or even Qatar,” he says.

    On his rooftop, he opens the gate of a large cage full of chattering flamingos. “People want them to decorate their gardens, or to put them in their private zoos. I’m the one supplying many Iraqi buyers.


    “Many flamingos die in my cage, especially during warm summer days,” he admits, adding: “I sell between one and 10 of those birds every month during winter, the peak season. They buy them dead or alive, because people also eat them.”

    It is during the winter months of October to February that the birds migrate towards the southern Iraqi marshes, where temperatures are milder and there is an abundance of food. Those that are captured are sold for 30–40,000 Iraqi dinars (£15–£20).

    Holding a flamingo tightly under his arm, Ali says the police are no threat to his business, despite a local decree banning flamingo poaching. Nonetheless, he remains cautious, adding: “I don’t bring flamingos into my shop. No need … people know where to find me, and if they do want one, they meet me at home or I can deliver the bird directly to their place.”

    Dr Hamoudi knows this area well. “Each year, thousands of birds are captured in the marshes. I know the hunting grounds well, so I sometimes give information to the environmental police in order to help them in their operations. They’d be unable to conduct them otherwise,” he says. He also regularly buys wild animals on the black market only to release them afterwards. “So far, I’ve freed 17 flamingos and many other animals from poachers.”
