Animal Articles!

I just subscribed to King5's rss feed. These articles caught my eye, and they're all about animals.

-Owls attack joggers. Require stitches. WTF?

-Horse drawn carriages banned in Portland? The mayor tweets, asking for input. This is controversial, but I think PETA is stupid. They blame the recent heatwave for killing a 27 year old carriage horse. Well duh! 100+ temperatures can do that, especially to animals not accustomed to extreme heat, and although horses can live years longer than 27, that still seems like a fairly ripe age for a horse right? PETA also says that horses have died in nearly every city that have horse-drawn carriage operations. Also stupid. You know what? People have died in every city that PETA operates. That's all I'll say about PETA right now. If horse drawn carriages really are cruel, I apologize, I don't know a lot about horses, but it seems like the sort of thing they are bred to do...

-Dogs trained to sniff out cell phones in prisons. Dog named Razor after Motorola phone (: How cute is that?

Training a dog to sniff out cell phones is pretty incredible.. I wouldn't have thought they had a scent. Go dogs!

The first bit about owl totally made me giggle. Owls are crazy these days, apparently.
