Russian Hunters Search For The Real-Life JAWS

Filed under: Scary!Shark

Russian Hunters Search For The Real-Life JAWS

There is real Jaws ofd the coast of Russia!!

A man-eating shark has attacked three victims in the past week, so, naturally, Russian authorities hired professional fishermen to find and destroy it.

Tuesday governor Sergey Darkin announced:

“We are planning to take out a number of fishing boats to catch sharks in the near future,”

According to the governor, they've got local authorities, scientists, emergency response specialists working on this special operation. Sounds like a lot of people. Don't they know all they really need is three men and — if you're lucky — a bigger boat??

Guess the Russian government is trying to avoid any sequels.

Pierce Brosnan Tells Iceland To Stop Whale Hunting

Pierce Brosnan Tells Iceland To Stop Whale Hunting

The former Agent 007 likes his whales alive! Pierce Brosnan is calling for an end to Iceland’s whale hunt.

National Resources Defense Council and is leading their campaign to stop Icelandic whaling.

In a recent post on OnEarth, the actor said:

“Last December, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and other groups filed a petition to stop Iceland’s rogue whaling. In response, the U.S. Commerce Secretary recently declared that Iceland is defying the international ban on commercial whaling. That declaration started the clock ticking on a 60-day period during which President Obama must decide whether or not to impose trade sanctions on Iceland. President Obama should begin by targeting imports from those Icelandic seafood companies directly tied to the whaling industry.”

We think this is a great idea!!

But instead of writing about it we think the action star should do what he does best: face off against the whale hunters man to person!!

We just hope he doesn't try to win them over with song. We all know what happened in Mamma Mia.

Snakes Scorpion On A Plane

Filed under: Scary!Insects

GREAT JOB TSA!!!!

Somehow a scorpion got past security and on to a plane to sing Alaska Airlines passenger Jeff Ellis.

He sat terrified 30,000 feet in the air staring at the wriggling scorpion that stung him on a flight to Alaska.

Jeff said:

"I felt it on my shirt-sleeve and brushed it off, I thought it was a little spider or something. Then I felt it back on my elbow. In the movies, scorpions kill people. I was just nervous, on edge, making sure that my heart was beating normal, that I wasn't sweating."

An Alaska Airlines spokeswoman said the scorpion probably crawled on board the plane during a stop in Austin, Texas. The plane then landed in Seattle, where Ellis boarded for a flight to Anchorage.

He said he is happy with the flight crew's response, and said the airline has offered him 4,000 frequent-flier miles and two round-trip tickets.

We think he deserves an annual salary. But it's whatever.

How To Read Your Dog's Tail

Filed under: Science!DogTips

how to read your dog's tail

Your doggie's tale indicates more about your dog's emotions than you might think.

High, stiff, and wagging = “I’m in charge”

A tail that’s upright like a mast doesn’t necessarily mean that a dog is feeling aggressive, but she’s certainly being assertive. Many people get bitten because they misinterpret stiffly wagging tails. A tail held high and wagging stiffly is the sign of a dominant dog, and it could mean that the dog is ready to attack.

Low, fast wags and short sweeps = “I’m no threat”

When a meek dog is approached by a more assertive dog—one with her tail up and stiffly wagging—she has only one reasonable response: to show the bossy dog that she isn’t a threat. Dogs who are fearful or submissive often will respond to another dog’s approach by holding their tails low and wagging them just slightly. This means, “Hey, I’m friendly and no threat at all.”

Low, slow wags and large sweeps = “It’s good to see you”

Sometimes a wag is really just a wag. You’ll know your dog is wagging because she’s happy to see you and wants to play when her tail is low or even with her body and is wagging a little slowly, but in wide sweeps back and forth. Usually, her whole butt will be wiggling as well.

Keep in mind: Some hunting dogs, like spaniels, have been bred to wag their tails constantly while pursuing quarry. To signal that they’ve found their game, they stop wagging and hold their tails stiffly up in the air. On the other hand, herding dogs are bred to have less tail movement so that their wagging tails don’t distract or excite the animals that they’re trying to herd. If you didn’t know that about these animals, you might think one was overly excited while the other was overly staid, when it’s really just the way they were bred.

GoDaddy's Competitor Raises Over $20,000 To Save Elephants

Namecheap raises thousands for elephants

Anyone looking to buy an internet domain name should avoid ScumGoDaddy.com and go HERE.

In response to GoDaddy.com's "Scummiest CEO of the Year" Bob Parsons elephant murder, competitor Namecheap has donated $20,433 to conservation group Save The Elephants.

The company offered to donate $1 for every customer who opened a new account with them after the video of Parsons' elephant hunt emerged and announced their total funds raised thus far on Twitter this past Tuesday.

Save The Elephants did not solicit the donation and was actually surprised, but is very grateful.

The founder of the organization, Iain Douglas-Hamilton, said:

"It's a very sad, tragic thing when elephants have to be shot. I find the glorification totally out of place."

Right on! We think Mr. Parsons may have just felt he had to kill a large animal to compensate for his small…qualities. Ha!

Namecheap say they were disturbed by the video and decided to throw "support behind our elephant friends".

Let's hope that elephant Parson's killed did not die in vain and Namecheap's generous donation saves countless more!

Jewel Gets Horses Ready For Branding Season

Filed under: JewelTwitterHorses

Jewel puts shoes on horses

Jewel loves to show off the animals on her farm and we love seeing them!

On Tuesday, Jewel posted a twitpic of two of her horses, tweeting along:

"Meeting the farrier at the barn to shoe our horses- getting ready for branding season"

Branding season? Ouch! Sounds painful, but we guess that's just part of #CountryLife.

It looks like this tweet was possibly in response to a fan asking if the singer had any horses, to which she tweeted in response:

"Does a road worker have a sun tan?"

What state is he working in? Ha! Jk, but we get it, this country gal's got lots of animal pals!

You have a lovely farm and lovely animals, Jewel! Keep posting more pics, please!
