Dog saves woman's life by calling 911

Your rating: None Average: 4 (3 votes)

Leana Beasley has faith that a dog is man's best friend.

Faith, a 4-year-old Rottweiler, phoned 911 when Beasley fell out of her wheelchair and barked urgently into the receiver until a dispatcher sent help. Then the service dog unlocked the front door for the police officer.

"I sensed there was a problem on the other end of the 911 call," said dispatcher Jenny Buchanan. "The dog was too persistent in barking directly into the phone receiver. I knew she was trying to tell me something."

Concerned over those damnable atheist kitties:

TAIPEI, Taiwan - A man leaped into a lion’s den at the Taipei Zoo on Wednesday to try to convert the king of beasts to Christianity, but was bitten in the leg for his efforts.

Wolves Targeted For Aerial Hunting In Alaska

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)

Unlike wolves in the continental US, Alaska wolves are not protected by the Endangered Species Act. Some people hunt Alaska wolves solely to increase the number of prey species that can also be hunted, which helps tourism.

Alaska as a whole has voted twice to ban the mass-killing of wolves via aerial shooting, where hunters divebomb packs of wolves, chase them until they tire, and shoot them from the air. But last June the governor of Alaska signed a bill to allow it anyway. The practice is about to be expanded to cover a larger area, and may soon include bears as well.

You may visit this link to learn more about the degree to which politicians and hunters are playing god with the ecosystem of Alaska, and what can be done about it.

Fauxpaw Publications Submissions Deadline

Your rating: None

As the new year approaches, Fauxpaw Publications is preparing it's new issues, and the final deadline for submissions is fast approaching.

Fur Visions #33 will have a theme of 'Eqyptian Dieties' and will carry the Mature Audiences rating. Furry art and stories are still desired in ratings from G to very soft R.

Fur Plus #23, the ADULT fanzine of Furs with a Difference, is also searching for more art and stories. The theme of this fanzine is that of 'taurs and other less-common' fur folk (from dragons to hermaphrodites to crazy over-endowed squirrels, to combinations of all of the above). All ratings of material from G to XXX is welcome, with a preference for quaility adult material.

Final deadline for both publictions is December 1st, 2004!

Both of the above publications will be released at Further Confusion 2005 in January 2005.
