Residents of the cozy mountain town of Grand Lake, Colorado, have spent the last two months fearing for the lives of their pets amid a rise in mountain lion sightings and attacks on local dogs. Since December 1, Routt County residents have spotted at least eight mountain lions in the...
Decide if this man is brave or foolhardy after watching him free a wolf from a steel trap using nothing but his hands and a snare pole. The footage, posted to Twitter Jan. 23, shows the individual calmly approaching the trapped gray wolf. After a few attempted swipes and bites by the canine, the man uses a snare pole (not a “stick” as the Twitter post implies) to pin the wolf with one hand as he release-springs the trap with the other.
Dozens flocked to a southern Minnesota lake for a day of ice fishing only to have the fun cut short when six cars plunged through the surface of the frozen water. Every year, Minnesota officials warn residents to exercise caution on frozen water, as ice is never 100 percent safe. This warning is often disregarded, however, and on Saturday (January 21), a group of ice fishers learned exactly why this is unwise.
Veterinarians at a Florida zoo were forced to sedate their “highly endangered” duo of Cuban crocodiles Tuesday after one was suspected of swallowing a plastic bottle. This procedure came as the result of a zoogoer approaching Zoo Miami officials to admit they dropped a plastic bottle into the crocodile enclosure. When staff entered the enclosure to retrieve it, the bottle was nowhere to be found. This led zookeepers to the assumption that one of the crocodiles consumed it.
An Indigenous American bison hunter has been “accidentally shot” north of Yellowstone National Park during a tribal hunt, highlighting the U.S. government’s dangerous overlap in harvesting programs. Per U.S. and tribal laws, bison that leave Yellowstone National Park are harvestable by four different native American tribes as...
Mountain lions are some of the most voracious predators in North America. With a combination of stealth, strength, and fearlessness, these big cats routinely take down full-grown deer by themselves. They will also opportunistically feed on elk, turkeys, raccoons, rabbits, and even domestic pets and livestock. However, new photographs confirm that mountain goats are also a food source for mountain lions.
This curious black bear is set for all the dating apps after snatching a City of Boulder wildlife cam and snapping a good 400 selfies. Known for their curiosity and explorative nature, the American black bear (Ursus americanus) hardly ever meets an object they won’t toy with. And while this makes them especially prone to habitation through dumpster diving and trash can exploitation, it can also result in hundreds of hysterical selfies.
An Australian man is alive after a crocodile took hold of his leg in the country’s Northern Territory. He was collecting the species’ eggs at the time. It is unknown if the nest he raided belonged to the attacking crocodile, but this is likely. Mother crocodiles fiercely protect their nests and nesting territories. Any perceived threat suffers their full wrath if found.
Scarface, a crocodile thought to be upwards of 100 years old, recently proved he can devour an entire feral pig without the help of a single tooth. Throughout their lives, crocodiles are capable of regrowing each of their razor-sharp teeth up to 50 times. Eventually, however, if a croc is lucky enough to reach a ripe old age, its teeth no longer regenerate. And while this can be an obstacle, it’s done nothing to slow Scarface.
American Pickers star Mike Wolfe is en route to Las Vegas, where he will auction off some of his motorcycle collection. We get a sneak peek into a few of these classic bikes that Mike’s been collecting. As fans of the show know, Wolfe has a knack for finding deals all over the place. These bikes have been a part of his life for a few years. He’s made it clear that these motorcycles will be sold as found. No fixer-uppers here in the collection. Wolfe, in this video from his own Twitter account, talks about the bikes that he’s putting up for auction. Let’s take a look and see what he’s saying here.
We’re big fans of High West Distillery’s A Midwinter Night’s Dram, so we decided to pick up a bottle of their Double Rye! Barrel Select, which is a blend of two ryes (one distilled at High West and one sourced from MGP) that have been finished in second-use barrels (rum, brandy, gin, scotch, or wine) for between six months and two years.
Most people think of the mountains out west, or the northwoods of Maine, Michigan, or Canada when they think of black bear hunting. However, a southern state is actually arguably the premier black bear hunting location in North America. The swampy coastal forests of eastern North Carolina are home to some of the largest black bears in the world. The region’s comfortably mild temperatures means black bears don’t need to hibernate. That means bears in the area eat all year long and tend to grow larger than in colder places. That much is evident by the absolutely behemoth 717-pound black bear that Marine Corps Veteran Daniel Parrott recently shot.
