PETA is not too happy with Liam Neeson for admitting that he ate wolf stew in preparation for a role!

The flick in question is The Grey, and in it, he plays the leader of a group of plane crash survivors being hunted by wolves in the Arctic.

As he explained during promotion of the flick:

Happy Feet Is Headed Home

Filed under: Penguin

YAY!

The emperor penguin that got lost hunting and accidentally swam to New Zealand is being sent back to Antarctica.

Over $28,000 was raised to help the bird — who many call the real life Happy Feet — get back on his feet and fund his 2,000 mile journey back home.

Hopefully some of that money also went towards getting him a GPS.

Reindeer Herder Stumbles Upon Baby Woolly Mammoth

Wowzerz!

The mammoth's name is Lyuba - and that's why we never let a Russian reindeer herder name anything important.

He Herder was chasing some of Rudolph's buddies when he discovered a perfectly preserved 40,000-year-old mammoth calf poking out of the permafrost.

Natalia Fyodorova, the find's expedition leader, expects this discovery to get a lot of attention, especially because the baby was found in the same region of Arctic Yamalo-Nenetsk as the last mammoth find four years ago. She said:

"If it is true what is said about how it is preserved, this will be another sensation of global significance."

For now, scientist are planning to send Lyuba to Salekhard so they can put her in a giant freezer. Go Science!

Giant woolly mammoths have been extinct since the Earth's last Ice Age 1.8 million to around 11,500 years ago.

Sadness!

A bunch of British students camping in Norway, were attacked by polar bear.

The attack killed a 17-year-old boy and injured four other teens.

The trips organizer, the British Schools Exploring Society, said two of the wounded were hospitalized with severe injuries and that campers were part of a trip of 80 people, most of them between 16 and 23.

Members of the expedition were spending either 3 or 5 weeks in the Arctic, and had each paid between $3,280 - $4,900 to join the trip.

The place in Norway where the attack happened is home to about 2,400 people and 3,000 polar bears.
