No Fur in SF

Animal welfare supporters, you can cheer hard over this one! San Francisco recently banned the sale of fur in the city, prohibiting people from profitting off the sale of dead animal skin. It's always baffled my mind as to why people might want to wear fur today. It's not like they are depending on it for survival anymore.

Elephants Don't Always Get Along

We often hear about how social elephants are, but that extends to their personalities and preferences as well. Just because they like other elephants doesn't mean that they will like each other, as is the case for Ruth and Emily, who live in a zoo in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Not only are the two living in an area too small for elephants that is too cold for them during the cold months, but they are incompatible.
