Thanks to the stem cell donations of one anonymous cow, people are making fake beef, which might one day save the environment and cows.
It could also get the far right angry about cow abortions despite the fact that they don’t exist. As the Official Spokescat of Friskies, it was flown first class to New York, where it got a hotel room with its own king-size bed and a personal assistant.
In return, Taiwan sent China two Formosan Sika deer and two Taiwan Serows. It’s not like anyone is talking about Serow diplomacy. This 13-year-old Shih Tzu rescue dog with a vestibular disease that caused a hearing impairment and an adorable head tilt, is owned by some MTV-show creating hipster.
The zoo offered Ping Ping (“peace”) while China liked Bei Bei (which I’m pretty sure means “Beyoncé Beyoncé”.) When Bei Bei turns four, he has to move to China.
Until then, you can watch him on the zoo’s Panda Cam.
A huge news story, it taught people not to pass around sea life, though the incident did not convey its much more important lesson, which is to stop taking selfies.
China and Taiwan have a very strained relationship.
The J-Bay Open, an event on the World Surf League Championship Tour ended prematurely when a shark attacked surfer Mike Fanning.
It chewed off the leash of his surfboard before he punched it in the back and got picked up by a rescue boat. Fanning and Julian Wilson decided to take a tie for first place instead of getting back in the water.
I’m assuming they just do that for the rest of their lives.
The original Shiba Inu that started the “doge” meme in which people who are bored on the Internet try to help other people who are bored on the Internet.
To do so, I formed a panel consisting of seven top animal experts. They would have been much higher on the list, but they’re not quite individuals. Lolita is the subject of a court case over whether an endangered species is exempt from being forced to put on a mildly entertaining show.
The Animals 100 board consisted of PETA president Ingrid Newkirk, Animal Planet and Discovery Channel president Rich Ross, environmentalist Philippe Cousteau, Farm Sanctuary president Gene Baur, in which the characters get stuck in an elephant’s vagina—and Moby, the vegan musician who lives a few houses away from me and was walking by my driveway while I was working on this. But they’re not quite a species either, since it’s just the mosquitoes that carry the disease we’re talking about. The seven-year-old Belgian Shepherd busted into the apartment of the guy suspected of planning the Paris bombings, took multiple gunshot wounds and died.
Using the American-created CRISPR technology that allows scientist to snip and move parts of DNA, Lei Qu at the Shaanxi Provincial Engineering and Technology Research Center for Shaanbei Cashmere Goats—which is a real place—created goats (presumably Shaanbei Cashmere ones) with bigger muscles and longer hair, to increase their meat and wool. This is way less important that the Costa Rican incident which got all the rich Costa Rican tourists upset and into wildlife. Simpson-style chase of one black and one white llama was covered live for 20 minutes on local Arizona television, as cops chased the two by car and then by foot, eventually lassoing both.
