Kenya's jumbo 'ele-fence' to stop human-wildlife conflict

A Space for Giants image shows a bull elephant breaking through a fence intended to keep it inside a wildlife reserve at Mutara Ranch in the central Kenyan district of Laikipia Machete in hand, Kenyan farmer Paul Njoroge points at the broken branches and giant footprints where elephants trampled his bananas, maize, potatoes and sugar cane. "We don't hate the elephants, but their activities are making us poor," said the 53-year old farmer, surveying his lush green fields, a five-hectare (12-acre) plot on the slopes of the Laikipia highlands in central Kenya. While poachers slaughter thousands of elephants across Africa each year, competition between elephants and people over land is a far bigger problem in the long run, conservationists say.

You tell me," said Yang Yuhua, an animal rights activist who flew from the southwestern city of Chongqing to buy dogs sold at this year's festival.     Yang spent over 1,000 yuan ($150) to buy two caged dogs at the market from the vendor.     Vendors said that they hoped for good business this year.     "They are a lot, a lot of people who like (eating dog meat).

Mammals thrived long before dinos died: study

Mammals took a big hit when the asteroid slammed into Earth, creating a hemispheric firestorm followed by a prolonged, bone-chilling drop in global temperatures "The traditional view is that mammals were suppressed during the 'age of dinosaurs'," and thus held in check, said co-author Elis Newham, a doctoral student in evolutionary biology at the University of Chicago. "However, our findings were that therian mammals -- the ancestors of most modern mammals -- were already diversifying considerably before the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event," also known as the K-Pg boundary. "I didn't expect to see any sort of drop," said lead author David Grossnickle, also of the University of Chicago.
