    Yes, itīs very sad:

    World's last male northern white rhino on the mend after infection threatened the species

    The world's last male northern white rhino is recovering from an infected leg that raised fears over the past week he might have to be put down, a veterinarian at a conservancy in Kenya says.

    A cute story:

    Two Golden Retrievers Greet One Another – But Their Owners Spotted Something Else

    "A woman named Pam Corwin was out shopping one afternoon when something queer has caught her attention.

    She spotted two identical dogs rushing towards each other and happily greeting one another...."

    Why don't people just familiarize themselves BEFORE getting a pet about the things that are so dangerous/harmful to pets?! This really baffles me, as an animal nut that I am.

    I see idiots smoking in cars, with their pet dog in there with them???!?!?! Love to take a hose to those types...

    Anyhow, I digress...

    Thank you, Danik, for posting this important information.

    There still are people that treat animals as living toys.

    An interesting study:

    How Would the 'Mona Lisa' Look to an Eagle, a Cat and a Butterfly?

    "Most animals see the world in a lot less detail than we do.

    "We are not the pinnacle of essentially any sensory system, except acuity," said Eleanor Caves, a postdoctoral researcher in biology at Duke University and the lead author of the new review. Regarding how detailed we see the world, 'we're really close to the top.'

    Caves and her colleagues gathered hundreds of academic papers to get a comprehensive look at how sharp hundreds of species of animals, fish and insects see the world. Researchers typically define visual acuity with what's called "cycles per degree"— or how many black-and-white parallel stripes an animal can see in 1 degree of their visual world."
