A group of students reportedly lured a dog to its death intentionally. They tossed the ball across a busy road, knowing that the animal would run after it.
A college in Ireland is currently investigating a troubling incident. Authorities at the University of Limerick claimed that a group of students lured a dog to its death intentionally.
A nearby resident on College Court Drive spoke about the act claiming that a group of drunken college goers had gathered on property, located near a busy road. A small dog was attracted to the crowd and joined them out of curiosity.
The students decided to play a game with the innocent canine. They purposely waited until a van was driving down the street. Then they tossed the ball across the road, knowing that the dog would run after it.
Sadly the pooch did just that. The animal was struck by the van and killed.
To make the situation even more atrocious, the students were laughing after the dog was hit. A petition has been signed seeking punishment for those responsible.
How do you think the students should be disciplined? Should they be suspended from the University?
At a time when man is looking at setting foot on Mars, a tribe is still living in trees. They have lived this way for more than six decades. Around 40 people belonging to an Indian tribe have made trees their home as that is the only safe place for them.They skillfully climb trees to reach their wooden homes - often as high as 50-60 feet - where they live in families of up to six members. They have been living this way for the past 65 years.Some of the tribals have built thatched huts on the ground close to their tree houses for their women. But it seems to make more sense to continue living on trees as it protects them from marauding elephants. The tree houses double as watch towers for the men to alert the women about the movement of elephants.This footage is part of the professionally-shot broadcast stock footage archive of Wilderness Films India Ltd., the largest collection of HD imagery from South Asia.

A number of the whales which had either gotten stuck on the rocks or were being pushed up against them by waves, seemed to be
Temperature sensitive plants that live beneath lush tree canopies seem to be faring better in the face of climate change. Temperature sensitive plants that live beneath lush tree canopies seem to be faring better in the face of climate change. Recent research points out the importance of maintaining that cover to ensure that biodiversity in forests continues to thrive. The scientists started by examining previous research that showed plants that prefer cooler environments being replaced by warmer-weather species. This was confirmed by comparing a survey taken nearly 35 years after initial surveys of temperate forests in North America and Europe.Researchers found that over that time, a third of the species listed in the original report had been replaced by those better equipped to deal with the environmental changes.The exceptions were found in plots that were protected by dense tree cover. Those trees helped create microclimates in which the original plants could thrive slowing the increase of warm adapted plant species.Further, the increase in humidity levels facilitated by the canopies helped protect the area from summer droughts. Co-author of the study, Dr. Keith Kirby, believes that a well-planned approach for conserving forest environments is needed. That includes what he specified as “gentle” intervention that boosts the ability of trees to fight off environmental threats.

In May, five puppies, which were only several days old, were found abandoned in a trash can in Highland Ranch, Colorado. The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak recently held a ceremony for the pups along with a formal adoption to their forever families. There are way too many abuse stories about animals. Fortunately, some have happy endings.Earlier this year, in May, five puppies, which were only several days old, were found abandoned in a trash can in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. Thankfully, they were rescued, but one of pups passed away. The four survivors were nursed back to life and three were placed in foster homes, where they have been getting attention and enjoying the ease being a puppy for the past nine weeks.The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region recently held a special adoption for the pups, giving them a chance to hang out with their forever families before heading home. The adorable and tiny dogs named Lilo, Bridgette and Gus-Gus will be going to separate homes in the Colorado state. The fourth puppy, named Brutus will meet his new family soon. The people who were going to take him in realized they weren’t quite ready for a puppy.It won’t take long to find him another home, as there were over 60 applicants who came forward hoping to adopt one of the dogs.
The mix breed dog named Tuna has a very prominent overbite and seemingly wrinkled skin. His owner posts pictures of him on Instagram and the page has over 380,000 followers.Even some of the strangest looking animals can somehow still be adorable. A dog named Tuna is one example.Described as a Chihuahua and Dachshund mix breed, he has a very prominent overbite and seemingly wrinkled skin. His owner, 31-year-old Courtney Dasher adopted Tuna in 2011 at a Los Angeles Farmer's Market. She stated “His rescuer said that he was thrown out and found on the side of a road near San Diego, which evidently traumatized him, because he would squirm on his belly when he attempted to walk.” After spending only a week with Tuna, she fell in love. She opened an Instagram account filled with photos of the sweet pooch. Each day, she posts a new picture and the page has over 380,000 followers. Just going by the images, anyone can see Tuna is now very happy with his new life. The dog’s adorable face is now featured on iPhone covers and clothing. A portion of the profits goes to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
