Pausing last year's hunt did not bring fox plague to UK

No votes yet

In spite of the claim by hunt supporters that foxes would overrun the UK if the horse and hound fox hunt was banned, the aborted hunt season last year due to foot and mouth has not led to any rise in fox numbers, researchers say. In fact, if anything, the numbers dropped slightly. The Countryside Alliance disregards the fecal drop count as innacurate, claiming farmers have been telling them that there are more foxes. And the debate goes on...

Parrots, apes, and elephants are people, too.

Steven M. Wise, J.D., is the president of Center for the Expansion of Fundamental Rights, and teaches Animal Rights Law at Harvard, Vermont, and John Marshall Law Schools. He has written a new book: Drawing the Line, which goes beyond his previous book Rattling the Cage in that he advocates legal rights even beyond the great apes to elephants, parrots, and dolphins. (But not dogs.)

Do you suffer from Bad Astronomy?

Everyone knows that meteors heat up in the Earth's atmosphere because of friction and that the moon only looks bigger at the horizon because the thick air acts like a lens... right?
If this and other cosmic myths are your "well known facts", maybe you need BadAstronomy.com

Furnation... banned in China?!

No votes yet

For those of you who follow world-wide internet policies, China's list of banned websites continue to grow, actively filtered out by what's colorfully coming to be called 'The Great Firewall of China'.
Out of curiosity, I began testing which websites are banned.
And the first one I entered to see reported inaccessible? Furnation.
Incredulous, I ran the test again, and a few more times. 1 successful attempt to reach it, out of 20. It leads to curious speculation; is it something as simply benign as a router misconfiguration? Perhaps a few servers along the way had conked out? Maybe Slashdot having linked the testing server has resulted in a sudden drop of reliability of the testing method?
Or maybe the mainland Chinese are afraid of teh cultural revolution that some ears and tails might unleash. (He typed firmly tongue-in-cheek.)

Inu-Yasha comes to Cartoon Network

0
Your rating: None

Inu-yasha, Rumiko Takahashi's latest animated series will appear this Saturday, (and perhaps later Saturdays) on Cartoon Networks "Adult Swim" programming block.
This series concerns a modern Tokyo girl, a dead ancient priestess, and a half-demon who has feelings for both (or are they one). The half-demon (Inu-yasha) has some dog-like traits in roughly the manner of the reoccuring Japanese cat-girl.

At least six shows are sheduled.

But it's not furry!

No votes yet

The complaint in the title comes up now and again, when we post a story to the site that isn't directly related to furry fandom. The FAQ only touches on the answer (okay, the FAQ is over a year and a half old, and needs to be rewritten), so I thought I would talk about Flayrah's 'mission statement'. Click below for more.

Raven too smart for owner

No votes yet

Richard Cooper owns a talking raven and wishes he could make him the star of a bird of prey show. But instead of saying cute things, like 'come back soon', Zeus, who spontaniously started picking up words at 6 months, keeps telling Richard to shut up, teases the dogs and torments visitors. Not so stupid.

ConiFur and Dropping Air Fares

Your rating: None

If you are on the bubble deciding if you can afford to go to this year's ConiFur NorthWest, now is the perfect time to check out the current competitive pricing plans that the various airlines are offering. Upon getting reports of very low rates from some of our membership, I've been doing research online and found that round trip tickets are indeed dropping quite a bit. Most coast to coast round trip tickets are at $300 or less! Now you can fly for as low as $236 through American Airlines for example. Fares up and down the west coast average $180 or less. Many others are matching this fare or offering better deals.

Try Orbitz and Travelocity for low fares.

Now is the time to shop for those great prices! And don't forget to make your reservations for your hotel room as well as they are going fast.
