ANTHRO #5 is online (yay!)

Your rating: None Average: 5 (3 votes)

Quentin 'Cubist' Long here with some late-breaking news: ANTHRO #5 (the May/June issue) is online! My apologies for the delay; I had to deal with some non-technical difficulties, sigh. As per usual, I hope you'll check out ANTHRO's "Support" section. No matter whether you subscribe, donate, buy a T-shirt or poster from ANTHRO, or click on through to for a darn fine furry novel, whatever money you give to ANTHRO means I'll be able to pay ANTHRO's contributing artists and writers.

Conifur NorthWest 2006 canceled

Your rating: None

Due to unforseen circumstances, Conifur NW has been canceled for 2006. The previous year's hotel has been torn down, a hotel they considered using as a replacement was also recently torn down. Many other hotels in the area are either going through ownership changes, or remodeling changes, or otherwise not fitting for the convention. This unfortunately leaves them with not enough time to plan for a location to hold the convention.

'Hedge's' Willis, Sykes Have Furry Fetish

LOS ANGELES -- Bruce Willis and Wanda Sykes both had problems tapping into their inner woodland creatures for the film "Over the Hedge" until they decided to make their furry characters more human.

Monkey-Eating Bears

Your rating: None

Bears killed and devoured a monkey in front of horrified visitors at a Dutch zoo, officials and witnesses said.

Visitors reported that the grisly scene began as several bears chased the monkey, a macaque, onto a wooden structure at Beekse Bergen Safari Park.

They said a bear tried unsuccessfully to shake the monkey loose, ignoring attempts by keepers to distract it. The bear then climbed up and grabbed the monkey, mauling it to death and bringing it to its concrete den, where three bears ate it.
