Dog Sleeping Patterns and Behaviors

According to Casper Mattress Company, dogs have distinct sleeping patterns and behaviors. Maybe a Dog Bed can make the difference? Here is how they list out: Dreaming: Yes, dogs can dream too! While it’s difficult to uncover exactly what dogs dream about, we know the brain processes their events of the day during sleep. So we can assume they’re dreaming of what happened during the day — like a walk around the block or chasing a squirrel. Twitching: Just like humans, dogs may twitch in their sl...

Robot Wolves Keep Bears Out of Japanese Town

Well, this is a fine howl do you do. After an uptick in bear sightings in the area this year and two fatal attacks in October — possibly because deforestation is leading bears in search of food into contact with humans — the small Japanese city of Takikawa bought two large wolf robots to scare off predators. Living wolves have been extinct in Japan for at least 100 years. When the four-foot wolf’s motion sensor is tripped, it howls as its eyes glow red and head swivels. Bear sightings have cease...

Barry the Barrel Owl - Central Park's Latest Celebrity

The New York Times just reported on NYC's latest celebrity. ‘I Had to See That Owl’: Central Park’s New Celebrity Bird New Yorkers are so obsessed with Barry the barred owl that some are concerned he could be scared away. So far, he seems to like the attention. It was late afternoon in the North Woods of Central Park, and the sun was setting fast. Joshua Kristal, a photographer with a penchant for birds, was starting to feel despondent as he searched along the creek, looking for any moveme...

Barn Owl Siblings Help Each Other

Wonderful article in the website on the sibling behavior of barn owls: By Pratik Pawar     If ever there were a competition to rank sibling relationships in the animal kingdom, barn owls would be close to the top. That’s because elder barn owlets will sometimes give away their meal to their younger siblings. Such cooperative behavior has been reported in adult nonhuman primates and birds, but rarely among young. “I don’t know any other species where you c...

Urban Resource Institute Outreach

We post this as a resource for pets and pet owners:   May is National Pet Month, and it is important to recognize the large intersection of domestic violence and animal abuse, as nearly half of domestic violence will not leave their pet behind. Children especially can be traumatized by leaving an animal behind because they have witnessed the threats or harm to their beloved pets. We’ve also seen a huge therapeutic value and positive health outcomes that pets have in healing including lower blood...

Rescuing Rex, The Red-Tailed Hawk

If you're a hawk who's planning to crash into a window, One Police Plaza in Manhattan is not the worst place to do it. Officers from the elite NYPD Special Operations Emergency Service Unit were quickly on the scene April 14 to pick up this juvenile red-tailed hawk, who was stranded on a traffic median by an injured wing. At the Wild Bird Fund, our team determined that the hawk, now named Rex, had a fractured ulna in his left wing. They not only splinted the wing, but they gave him a stylish mat...

Cannabis For Dogs?

An Emotional Support Dog Is the Only Thing That Chills Out a Cheetah

A fascinating article from AtlasObscura: Like humans, the notoriously nervous cats can use a surrogate best friend. Cheetahs and dogs weren’t always friends. And at first glance, the feline-and-canine couple seems an odd pairing—one that turns heads for its cuteness, if not its unconventionality. But the practice of rearing young cheetahs with a canine companion has become a major means of relaxing the notoriously nervous cats at U.S. zoos from New York to San Diego. The relationship didn’t ...

Seafaring Pets

A fascinating article by Vittoria Traverso From war to exploration to pleasure cruising, pets have often accompanied us on the oceans. It gets hard to tell when you go back that far, but humans—Homo erectus in this case—probably crafted the first seaworthy vessel some 800,000 years ago. Since then, our ability to build boats and take to the seas has been critical to many of the most important human processes, from migration and commerce to exploration and, of course, war. But we did n...
