Coyotes On The Porch

KNOXVILLE, Tennessee- It was too close for comfort for a Knox County family after a couple of coyotes took over their porch recently. The Gibbs watched as the animals attacked a neighbor's small dog for half an hour. Cheryle Cox says "We heard a sound that made our skin crawl, looked out and they were right there on the porch." Paul Osborne, with All Creatures Wildlife Solutions, says the coyote population has grown 400 percent in the last five years. "They're great at adapting, glad to live off of birdseed, small rodents, whatever they can find. Sometimes that's your cat. They seem to like cat." Aside from keeping cats and dogs indoors Osborne recommends hiring his service or getting Rottweilers. "Coyotes see a Rott stalking the yard, they tend to move on."
Male Beaver Kills Doe With Antlers

BLACK WATER, Arkansas- An Arkansas hunter thought he bagged his first buck of the season but it wasn't until Danny Beaver got home that he found out his buck was a doe. "We had it hanging up and took a look and said "That ain't what's supposed to be there," Beaver explained. Closer examination proved "I thought at first it just might have really, really small guy stuff but, nope, this doe had a rack."
Innocent Elephant Hunter Trampled By Horny Elephant

CHEWORE, Zimbabwe- Professional game hunter, Ian Gibson, was trampled to death by a young bull elephant while leading a hunt in the lower Zambezi Valley. Gibson’s tracker indicated the elephant was in “musth” – when the urge to mate goes into overdrive and overly aggressive behavior is common, but Gibson didn't heed the warning. Seconds later the bull spotted them and charged. The hunting party got off one errant shot before Gibson met his death. A spokesman for the tour company employing Gibson said "Gibbo' was the most decent man I have ever known and certainly didn't do anything to deserve this."
"Blinkers Is Missing"

CHAPATOULEE, Florida- Losing a pet is a heart break for anyone but to lose your cat and then have to watch the animal that ate "Blinkers"digest it for days has been doubly difficult for Sue Wadel. "I saw Blinkers run off after something in the weeds and when he don't come back I go out and see a python with a Blinkers sized bulge in his stomach and I just knew." But the biggest blow may have come when 6 year old Cyndy Wadel saw the snake and said "Mom, can we keep it?" Then little Cyndy added "Oh yes, I think Blinkers is missing." A tearful Wadel said "I didn't have the heart to tell my little baby Blinkers was right there."
Albino Or New Species

SAUGATUCK, Michigan- Cross breeding animals has been done for centuries. Some combinations make perfect sense, like a horse and a donkey to create a mule. So, did someone cross a cow and a deer or is the youngster that appeared in Ray Kennelly's back yard an albino deer, a naturally occurring but aberrant individual? "If this fawn is female and has an utter... and can run and jump like a deer, I will keep her away from barbed wire fences," said Kennelly, who intends to raise the orphaned fawn just to see what happens.
