Two recent stories about animal attacking animals: one, a golden eagle attacking, and killing, a deer in Russia, and the other, from Brazil, of a jaguar attacking a crocodile. Both items contain images; game cam photos of the eagle attack and video of the jaguar. Why do we want to see these, and why are stories like this considered important?
Notice I am not linking to the stories; easy enough to find on Google if you have the need to watch one animal killing another.
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

William Henry's Revelations | William Describes a Bizarre Horror Show at a UFO Conference | unknowncountry
It's events like the following that make me glad I'm often out of the loop UFO Land; ennui, work, personal life often keep me from really wallowing.

William Henry's Revelations | William Describes a Bizarre Horror Show at a UFO Conference | unknowncountry: William Henry tells a horrifying story of imprisonment of the audience at the Contact in the Desert Conference August 9--11. He says that David Wilcock came with a bodyguard, and that Steven Greer arrived with a whole group of bodyguards, who proceeded to lock the doors and allow nobody in our out during his presentation. If this happened, it was illegal, and we urge all UFO conference attendees to demand that they not be imprisoned during any performance for any reason.
Killer bees, now drunken wasps. Huffington Post reports:
DRUNK WASPS: Just When You Thought They Couldn't Get Worse: Humanity's worst fear has been realized: wasps are getting drunk. And they're not fun drunks, either.
The British Red Cross is warning citizens of a record number of wasps in the UK that are out of a job. That is, their queens are fully supplied with nectar, leaving worker wasps to do nothing but laze around and drink fermenting fruit.
The Independent reported that as winter approaches, wasps are becoming bolder and angrier as they get older. And now these retirees are getting wasted and stinging with more frequency.

Here Be Dragons: The Evolution of Sea Monsters on Medieval Maps - Yahoo! News: WASHINGTON — The iconic sea serpents, mermaids and other mythical creatures found on world maps from medieval and Renaissance times splash to life on the pages of a new book.
Chet Van Duzer's "Sea Monsters on Medieval and Renaissance Maps" (British Library, 2013) charts the evolution of the mythical creatures that adorned atlases from the 10th century through the 17th century. Cartographers used the beastly art to illustrate mysterious, unexplored regions of the globe and the possible dangers of seafaring.
