In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying
"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Bill Warren buys a pelt for $5.00 at a garage sale; thinks it possible it's the pelt of a Tasmanian Tiger. Hassles with U.S. Fish and Wildlife, and negoiations with an auction house ensue. Adding to Fortean goodness: Warren is a singer, knew Sinatra, is a treasure hunter, and ran for Congress.
