In South Korea, killing dogs to eat them is now illegal

Dog meat has long been part of the culinary tradition of South Korea, where an estimated one million dogs are eaten each year.

The dogs will soon not find themselves on the plate in South Korea. A local court found it illegal to slaughter canines for their meat. They have long been part of the culinary tradition of South Korea, where an estimated one million dogs are eaten each year.

Nevertheless, this use declines. More and more South Koreans consider that the dog is the friend of the man and the practice of eating it becomes taboo in the younger generations.

Koko, the famous gorilla who spoke sign language, is dead

The primate, subject of many documentaries, was aged 46 years old. His vocabulary exceeded the 1000 words.

Image

Koko, a captive-bred gorilla who has become world-famous for his sign language skills, died on Wednesday 20 June at 46 in California, the Gorilla Foundation announced, following the animal.

The primate, who was born on 4 July 1971 at the San Francisco Zoo, died "in his sleep," the foundation said in a statement.

"Koko's ability for language and empathy has opened the minds and hearts of millions of people," the foundation said, calling it "the icon of interspecies communication." "She was very loved and we will miss her deeply."

From 1972, a researcher and psychologist for animals, Francine Patterson, began to teach Koko sign language, before continuing her apprenticeship at Stanford University, where was established the foundation, dedicated to the study of gorillas in captivity .

Koko, who will gradually master more 1000 words, was then the subject of many reports that made his reputation. Starting with the cover of National Geographic, in October 1978, who showed her taking her picture by looking in a mirror.

Koko also became famous with her affection for her kitten, whom she had named "All Ball". A children's book, "Koko's kitten", has even been published. At the death of the cat, overturned by a car, Koko had displayed his grief for months.

Koko has taken care of many kittens, and helped raise them to become healthy, over the years. Yet, she always started "All Ball" (who she named) 30 years ago. See how she's doing with her latest friends, Ms. Gray and Ms. Black, whom she has just adopted a couple of years ago. Koko has become a role model for both interspecies communication and empathy.

Fortunately, it is not unique - all gorillas have the same intrinsic capability to gesture meaningfully and care about others that are often quite different than themselves. This observation has the potential to save all the time, and to enrich our relationships with them in captivity!

Video: The very rare images of Ili's Pika, an amazing animal

by Yohan Residence 23 June 2018

Not long ago, a Chinese television channel broadcast unique images of a rarely-seen animal: Ili's Pika, also known as the "magic rabbit". It seems straight from a cross between a hamster and a rabbit.

Image

A video was recently published by the Chinese channel CGTN, immortalizing the presence of the Pika Ili or Ili pika (Ochotona iliensis). This animal lives between 2800 and 4000 meters high in the Tianshan Mountains, located in northwestern China, specifically in Xinjiang Province.

It must be known that this animal was very rarely observed, and that there were not yet video images showing it. Ili's Pika was discovered just over three decades ago, and few humans can claim to have seen it. In addition to the altitude at which it lives, it is also very discreet, so that only thirty specimens have been seen since its discovery.

Gabon: discovery of a new crocodile species stuck in a cave since 3000 years

Florian Guénet 29 June 2018

Amazing discovery in Gabon, where scientists have indeed had the incredible surprise of coming face to face with orange crocodiles, visibly stuck in a cave since about 3,000 years. It all starts in 2008, when a group of archaeologists decides to visit the caves of Abanda. Discovering a certain ecosystem, scientists will come back two years later and come out with orange crocodiles!

Very quickly, the question of their color arises. If the first explanation finds its reasoning in the fact that these animals have been locked up for thousands of years, in the dark, science will finally advance another reason. Indeed, guano, a highly toxic substance based on bat excrement and in which these crocodiles bathe, would be the main reason for this depigmentation.

Of course, the diet of these crocodiles has evolved, adapting to their new environment. On the menu ? Bats, but also locusts or crickets. A diet far from the image of terrible carnivore that we all have in mind.

South Africa: poachers are devoured by lions


July 05 2018

At least three poachers on the rhinoceros trail have been devoured by lions in a private game reserve in southeastern South Africa, it was reported Thursday 5 July from its owner. Armed with a rifle and an ax, the hunters entered the Sibuya reserve early Monday morning and were found dismembered the next morning, said Nick Fox to AFP.

"They did not have a lot of time to react"

"They found themselves in the middle of a group of lions, a large group apparently, so they did not have much time to react," said the owner. "We do not know exactly how much they were, there is not much left," continued Nick Fox. "We found clothes for three people."

Every year, thousands of rhinos are slaughtered in Africa for their horns, highly prized by traditional medicine practitioners in China or Vietnam. There remain 5 000 specimens of black rhinos on the African continent, including nearly 1 900 in South Africa. The country is also home to some 20 000 white rhinoceros, or 80% of the world's population.
