Watch Dogs is one of the best games of the year and a decent showcase title for the new generation consoles, but it still doesn’t stand up to the seemingly professionally doctored demo from E3 2012. What we saw two years ago was a game that looked more stunning than just about anything else on the market — the reality wasn’t quite as impressive. Now, just two months after the game’s release, PC ...

Elephants Can Outsniff Rats and Dogs

Elephants Can Outsniff Rats and Dogs Elephants are known for their impressively long trunks, but perhaps less well known is the large number of genes that code for their sense smell. "Rats had the record for the largest number of [these] genes," said the study's lead researcher Yoshiihito Niimura, a researcher of molecular evolution at The University of Tokyo in Japan. The findings support other research on the pachyderm's superior sense of smell. African elephants can smell the difference between two tribes living in Kenya: the Maasai, whose young men prove their virility by spearing elephants, and the Kamba, farmers who usually leave elephants alone, reported a 2007 study published in the journal Current Biology.

Olfactory receptors detect odors in the environment. "Apparently, an elephant's nose is not only long but also superior," said lead study author Yoshihito Niimura of the University of Tokyo.

Opponents of the law point to the Chino video and the investigation that followed, which led to the largest meat recall in U.S. history, saying the secrecy puts consumers at higher risk of food safety problems and animals at higher risk of abuse.

Bald eagles found on California island for first time in 50 years

A bald eagle takes off as U.S. marathon runner Keflezighi trains for the London 2012 Olympics in Mammoth Lakes, California A pair of nesting bald eagles have been found on San Clemente Island off the Southern California coast for the first time in more than 50 years, the National Park Service said on Thursday, marking the latest step in their comeback from near extinction. The discovery means that bald eagles, which vanished from the Channel Islands in the early 1960s due to DDT poisoning and once were listed as an endangered species, have now returned to five of the eight islands in the chain. "This news is very gratifying," Peter Sharpe of the nonprofit Institute for Wildlife Studies said in a statement released by the park service. "I expect to see bald eagles return to all eight of the Channel Islands within a few years, which will mark yet another milestone in their successful recovery." No chicks have yet been seen in the San Clemente Island nest, which was established by two birds that came from two other islands in the chain, the park service said.

Zoo Elephants' Big Threat: Too Much Junk in the Trunk

A female African Elephant, eats at the Milwaukee County Zoo African elephants in captivity are packing on the pounds, and experts warn that the rise in obesity is contributing to infertility, which could be detrimental to the survival of the species in zoos. To get a handle on the problem, one group of researchers in Alabama is looking for a better way to measure body fat on the already huge animals. Just like humans, elephants with excess fat are more likely to develop heart disease, arthritis and infertility, Daniella Chusyd, a graduate student at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, said in a statement. Previous studies have shown an alarming number of African elephants in zoos have irregular or no ovarian cycles.  [Elephants Images: The Biggest Land Animal]


Dams Imperil Pakistan's Endangered River Dolphins

The Indus River dolphin's habitat is shrinking because of irrigation dams that divide up the river into sections, new research suggests. "It is river habitat fragmentation by dams, and removal of river water for irrigation, that has caused the massive range decline of the Indus River freshwater dolphin," Gill Braulik, a cetacean specialist at the Wildlife Conservation Society in Tanzania and lead author of the new study, said in a statement. Around the world, there are several species of river dolphins, which evolved similar features independently, according to a 2012 paper in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. River dolphins have longer snouts than those of their ocean-dwelling counterparts, but they can't see as well as marine dolphins, probably because good eyesight wasn't needed in the dim, cloudy river water where they live, according to the World Wild Fund for Nature.

Smile, Hawaiian Wildlife: You're on Candid Camera

Smile, Hawaiian Wildlife: You're on Candid Camera This summer, Hawaii’s endangered wildlife will be on candid camera, as two kinds of drones survey the numbers and whereabouts of animals in their natural habitats. The drones, funded largely by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), will also survey plants, monitor remote waters, find garbage for removal, and record and photograph fragile ecological features in the Papah?naumoku?kea Marine National Monument. This area encompasses nearly 140,000 square miles (363,000 square kilometers) of the Pacific Ocean, including parts of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. In June, scientists deployed a small drone named Puma from the deck of a NOAA research ship, dubbed Hi'ialakai, to take videos and still and infrared pictures of green sea turtles, Hawaiian monk seals and seabirds.

"In total four rhinos were killed and they managed to escape with three horns," Muya told AFP, saying the incident was the worst single attack in Kenya on rhinos since 1988, when six were slaughtered by poachers.

Thailand faces trade ban over ivory failings

This picture taken on August 30, 2013 shows confiscated elephant tusks displayed during a press conference at the customs office in Bangkok Thailand faces an international wildlife trade ban unless it reins in its ivory sector, which is a magnet for traffickers, global regulator CITES said on Friday. "There have been years without any real action on the ground when it comes to controlling the illegal ivory market," said Oeystein Stoerkersen, chairman of CITES's governing body. The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora has set Thailand an August 2015 deadline to fall into line or risk wide-ranging sanctions. Bangkok is under additional pressure to report back by January on steps to bolster recent laws on registering ivory importers, traders and legal stockpiles, that CITES claims are insufficient.

Sheep graze in the bushfire-scarred mountainous terrain near the town of Coonabarabran in south-eastern Australia Footage showing sheep being violently abused by shearers -- including being punched in the face and hit with tools -- was condemned Friday by Australia's Agriculture Minister as "exceptional and cruel". The images, reportedly filmed in Australia by undercover investigators for the animal rights group PETA, showed shearers severely abusing animals in a country famed for its wool industry and exports. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said the footage was shot at 19 contractor-run sheep shearing sheds in Australia between October 2013 and February 2014.

Detroit Zoo caring for 30 animals recovered from garage

(Reuters) - More than two dozen animals, including some exotic species, have been recovered from a residential garage in suburban Detroit and taken to the Detroit Zoo for care, the zoo said on Thursday. The animals were found in small cages in the garage on Wednesday after an animal control officer found a coati wandering in a neighborhood in Warren, Michigan, the zoo said.

The remaining populations are found in the Virunga mountain chain, which winds through the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda and Rwanda.
