Animal News Highlights 9/30/11

It’s Friday, the 30th of September, a beautiful day in the neighborhood, and here’s the rest of the news from the animal world…

If you’re home alone and hear a noise coming from another room, do you go investigate it? I suppose so, but would you be as calm and collected as this 12 year-old San Bernadino girl who found a brown bear had broken into her kitchen? I don’t think I would’ve been (at 12 or now) . . . An adorable young doe makes friends with a cat. They have been visiting with each other almost every day for weeks now . . . Maybe you were lucky enough to see Skidboot on Letterman or Leno. Here is the amazing story of an amazing dog who was also someone’s best friend . . . Remember Rin Tin Tin, the German Shepherd of movie and television fame? There is a whole fascinating story behind the dog “born in 1918 and never died.” 12 generations of Rin Tin Tin have entertained us and become part of our cultural tapestry. The story is now being turned into a biography written by Susan Orlean, who also wrote The Orchid Thief (later became the movie Adaptation) . . . New report has mixed forecast for Britain’s wildlife – the red squirrel and hedgehog are in grave danger, but the river otters and bats are thriving . . .  Even if your dog is bred to hunt, it doesn’t mean he’ll be any good at – but it does open up a world of great photo ops . . . A 65-lbs shark takes a kayak fisherman for a heck of a ride. Yes, he got the shark in the 16 foot boat! The fisherman took a picture with his exotic catch and released it – and then paddled the long distance back to shore.
