    A Bengal tiger cub. MARVIN RECINOS/AFP/Getty Images Tigers are spectacular creatures, but the species is also listed as endangered by the World Wildlife Fund. There are currently five subspecies of tigers living in the wild, according to the US Fish and Wildlife Service. To celebrate International Tiger Day on July 29, Insider rounded up 15 stunning photos of tigers in their natural habitats.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Tigers are nothing short of spectacular. The species is listed as endangered by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), meaning tigers as a whole are considered to face a "very high risk of extinction in the wild." The WWF, which describes itself as the world's leading conservation organization, reports that 93% of historical tiger habitats have completely disappeared because of human activity.  With habitat loss and poaching, tigers in the wild face several obstacles. Today, some 3,900 tigers live in...
    Things got real for Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk as soon as the door to his hotel room clasp shut Sunday night. All the excitement that went along with the NHL restarting its season faded away and reality set in. The silence inside the Sutton Place Hotel in Edmonton stunned Dubnyk as he drifted off the sleep more than 1,200 miles from home. “It was certainly strange waking up this morning,” Dubnyk said. “Just realizing we are here and we are really doing it.” After nearly 150 days away due to the coronavirus pandemic, the NHL officially resumes its 2019-20 season this weekend. While that in and of itself is a relief for so many around the league, whichever team hoists the Stanley Cup at the end of the playoffs will have sacrificed a lot along the way. As teams arrive in their respective hub cities — the Western Conference in...

    By Lauren Kent | CNN The first chicken to ever cross the road was likely in Southeast Asia, new research has revealed. Despite the prevalence of chickens — they outnumber all other birds on the planet with approximately 23 billion cluckers worldwide — centuries of scientists have struggled to determine exactly where they originated and how they were domesticated. Previous studies suggested that chickens were domesticated in northern China during the Neolithic era sometime around 8050 BC or the Indus Valley Civilization around 2000 BC, in what is now Pakistan and northwest India. Many scientists believed two separate origins — both India and China — also made sense. But now a new study published in the journal Cell Research has contradicted those findings. Scientists analyzed 863 genomes from a worldwide sampling of chickens and found that modern chickens descended primarily from ancient chickens that lived in what is now Myanmar,...

    Kanye West has missed the deadline to officially run for president in South Carolina in November – and never even applied to make the ballot in the state where he held his first campaign rally. 'The petition deadline has passed for the 2020 general election and the state election commission did not receive a petition from Kanye West,' Chris Whitmire, a spokesman for the South Carolina Board of Elections, told reporter Ben Jacobs. 'There are no exceptions to the deadline,' Whitmire asserted. The comments come after West held a rally in North Charleston, South Carolina on Sunday, just two weeks after announcing his intentions to run for president. West spent the required fee to make the ballot in Oklahoma last week and filled out the proper Federal Election Commission paperwork to officially make a run for the White House in November. According to the forms, West is running as an...

    Alex Galchenyuk knew the offensive production would come. He trusts the work he puts in, staying after practice to get in extra ice time. The opportunities just hadn’t been there this season for the 26-year-old forward who started his pro hockey career at the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 draft. He spent the first part of the season in Pittsburgh, where he played less than 12 minutes a game, significantly less than the one-time 30-goal scorer averaged earlier in his career in Montreal. His ice time was inconsistent, which can make it difficult to find a rhythm. That changed in February, when he was dealt to center-needed Minnesota as part of the deal that sent Jason Zucker to Pittsburgh. Ice time wouldn’t be a problem here. Finally, Galchenyuk started to produce. He had seven points in Minnesota’s final 11 games leading up to the league’s suspension in mid-March,...
    SAN ANTONIO – An exceptionally rare bird has just been born at the San Antonio Zoo and it’s a big win for conservationists who say only about 140 are known to exist in human care. San Antonio Zoo officials said a Micronesian Kingfisher, which is known to be extinct in the wild, was successfully hatched on July 4. This is the first time a successful Micronesian Kingfisher hatching has occurred at the zoo in five years. “I am so very proud of our Animal Care Specialists for all their hard work, dedication, and passion they bring to zoo daily,” said San Antonio Zoo president Tim Morrow. “This significant hatching is a result of the excellent care the animals receive and are key to continuing our mission of securing a future for wildlife.” A press release from the zoo states that Micronesian Kingfishers are notoriously picky about their partners but the...
    Choosing species lower on the food chain directly supports seafood sustainability MCKINLEYVILLE, Calif., July 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) recently reported: “More needs to be done to ensure fisheries around the world are sustainable.” According to Wild Planet, the first large-scale sustainably focused seafood company in the country, consumers can support sustainable fisheries around the world simply by choosing fish lower on the food chain—which the oceans naturally provide in abundance. From the bottom up, increasing consumer demand for less popular species can affect positive change for our oceans and, in turn, our planet. Wild Planet is the first large-scale sustainably focused seafood company in the country. The company supports selective harvest through the use of sustainable fishing methods, which helps preserve and protect the delicate marine ecosystem. A typical grocery store’s canned seafood shelf contains roughly 70% tuna, which reflects our preference...
    ▶ Watch Video: Squirrel tests positive for bubonic plague in Colorado A squirrel has tested positive for the bubonic plague in the Town of Morrison in Colorado, Jefferson County Public Health officials announced in a statement over the weekend. The squirrel, discovered on Saturday, is the first case of plague in Jefferson County, the statement said.  A spokesperson for Jefferson County Public Health told CBS News on Tuesday that someone in Morrison reported seeing at least 15 dead squirrels around the town. Officials tested one, and since it was positive for bubonic plague, they expect others are also infected. In a statement, officials warned that plague, an infectious disease caused by the bacteria Yersinia pestis, can be contracted by humans and household animals. They said humans can be infected through flea bites, the cough of an infected animal or by coming in direct contact with blood or tissue from an...
    A Michigan man reportedly won a $2 million lottery prize — after inadvertently receiving the wrong ticket from a store clerk. What are the details? The 57-year-old unnamed man reportedly went to put air in his wife's truck tire at a gas station in Eastpointe, a suburb of Detroit. While there, the lucky man decided to purchase a lottery ticket. He had his eye on a $10 Lucky 7 scratch-off, but instead, a store clerk reportedly handed over a $20 ticket in error. In a statement to the Michigan Lottery, the man said, "I stopped to put air in my wife's truck tire and I needed some change for the machine. I went in to get change and asked for a $10 Lucky 7's ticket. The clerk handed me the $20 ticket by mistake." The clerk, realizing his mistake, reportedly offered to exchange the ticket for the...
    (CNN)On the Pacific fringes of Chile lies a biological haven. Along the Patagonian coast, surrounded by majestic snow-capped mountains, corals live among some of the deepest fjords in the world. New species are being discovered here; there are still areas waiting to be documented. But even as the reefs' secrets reveal themselves, there is trouble in paradise.Chilean-German biologist Vreni Haussermann arrived in Chilean Patagonia in the late 1990s to explore what she calls "one of the last wildernesses on Earth." Haussermann was a student at the University of Munich when an exchange program gave her the chance to study for a year in the city of Concepcion, central Chile.For her thesis, she set out on a six-month drive along the country's long coastline with research partner Gunter Forsterra, who is now her husband.They dived frequently along the way, and Haussermann was intrigued by the possibilities of Patagonia.

    Someone has definitely had a little too much fun in the sun.  A wild video shared last week by ABC News showing eagle rays swimming close to a group of unsuspecting swimmers in Florida has gone viral but not for the adorable sea creatures.   Viewers were left mystified by the appearance of a bright red man who clearly was suffering from a case of extreme sunburn.  Video showing eagle rays swimming close to a group of unsuspecting swimmers in Florida has gone viral after a badly sunburnt man appeared briefly 'KEEP SWIMMING: Huge stingrays are seen swimming past Florida beachgoers who appear completely unaware of their passing,' ABC News said in their caption, not mentioning the swimmer. And while the rays are the star and main focus of the video, the rosy beachgoer easily steals the show for those who noticed his brief appearance.  Folks took to the video's comment...

I’m a strong believer in paying attention to the polling averages rather than obsessing over individual polls, but rules are meant to be broken and a survey released on Sunday by The Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas, Tyler has some internal numbers that are worth digging into. So with the caveat that it’s a single poll that’s subject to error and offers only a snapshot in time, let’s take a peek under the hood. Most reports focus on the topline numbers, which have Joe Biden leading Donald Trump by five points, 48-43. That’s  somewhat worse for the incumbent than RealClearPolitics average, which shows the state in a dead tie with 45 percent of the vote for each candidate. But this isn’t a...
    (CNN)About 10,000 years after the Steppe Bison went extinct, UK's most important wildlife species are now also racing toward extinction.Ancient Steppe bison once roamed the land which would later become England. Their presence significantly provided other animals and plants the healthy ecosystem they needed to thrive. Now, the UK is looking to the Steppe bison's closest relative to bring back the area's ancient woodlands -- the European bison. The $1.4 million "Wilder Blean" project, funded by the People's Postcode Lottery Dream fund, aims to release a small herd of European bison into the West Blean woods, near Canterbury in East Kent, during the spring of 2022. The bison will come from the Netherlands or Poland, where previous releases have proved successful, and the initial release will include one male and three females, according to the Guardian. Natural breeding is expected to increase the size of the herd. Read MoreDescribing European...

REUTERS/Peter Andrews A herd of bison released in southern England will be the first bison to return to England 6,000 years after their ancestors became extinct. Environmentalists say bison are a "keystone species" that can naturally manage woodlands. European bison imported from Poland and the Netherlands will form the core of the new herd. Beavers have already been successfully reintroduced into the UK and there are discussions about releasing other extinct species, including wild lynx and even wolves.

    Bear populations have been growing all across North America, bringing them in closer and more regular contact with humans each year.  That trend is putting bears at far greater risk than humans, according to a new study from the University of Alberta, led by Clayton Lamb. Lamb and his colleagues tracked 2,669 grizzly bears across British Columbia between 1979 and 2019 and found that the mortality rate for bears who lived near humans was 7.5 times higher than it was for those that lived in the wild. A new study found that bears that lived close to towns and cities had mortality rates that were 7.5 times higher than those that lived further into the wild According to the team, only one in 30 grizzly bears that lived in regions with frequent human contact would live to be 14-years-old, roughly middle aged for bears. In wild areas with less...
    California condors were recently seen soaring through Sequoia National Park for the first time in nearly 50 years. The giant endangered bird, the largest in North America, was known to nest inside massive sequoia trees before its near-extinction in the 1980s. Officials from the Pacific Southwest Region of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) said at least six condors were observed near the Giant Forest and Moro Rock, a popular hiking destination in the park, in late May. Photos of the birds show two of them gliding through the air and resting on a metal railing. The USFWS Pacific Southwest Region recently captured several California Condors soaring through Sequoia National Park. Wilson Garver/NPS "Condors were consistently seen throughout the parks until the late 1970s. Observations became increasingly rare throughout the latter portion of the century as the population declined," Tyler Coleman, a wildlife biologist with Sequoia and Kings Canyon...

    Reporters fumeded following White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s press briefing on Monday, criticizing McEnany for failing to adequately answer questions and then abruptly concluding the briefing after berating the media. Most of the criticism directed at McEnany concerned her repeated attempts to “duck” questions about President Donald Trump’s tweet insinuating NASCAR is losing viewers for banning the Confederate flag and demanding that driver Bubba Wallace apologize after a noose was discovered in his garage. “[McEnany’s] briefing is off the rails,” tweeted New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman. “Doesn’t answer the question she’s repeatedly asked about the president saying Bubba Wallace should ‘apologize,’ then gets angry reporters are pressing her on it.” .@PressSec briefing is off the rails.

    Let’s take a snapshot of roughly 60 games from last year. The 68 days from May 9 to July 16, a period that covered the All-Star break. Narrow it further to just the AL West. If that period were the whole season, the A’s (38-23) and Astros (37-22) would have tied for the division title that Houston won by 10 games in the actual 162-game season. Also, the Angels (34-26) and Rangers (33-28) would have been a combined 15 games over .500 in a year when they combined at 24 under over six months. The AL West was no one’s idea of a super division in 2020, but it was for these 60-ish games. The shorter a season, the greater the likelihood for more random outcomes. The five best teams on paper to me are the Braves, Dodgers, Rays, Twins and Yankees. But that is based on talent/depth/minor league resources...

    A 72-year-old California woman was gored and injured multiple times by a wild bison at Yellowstone National Park after repeatedly approaching the animal to take its photograph, park administrators said Monday.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Democratic majority is safe. We know that impeached, bunker-cowering, rally-fizzlin’ president Donald Trump is in deep electoral trouble. We know the Republican Senate majority is under serious threat. And we know that no one is worried about the House switching hands. Given Republican fundraising deficit ($191 million to $147 million) and candidate recruitment, as well as their inability to win back the suburban white women who delivered the House to Democrats in 2018, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s majority is safe. In fact, there’s a real possibility that Democrats will expand their majority.  So what do hapless House Republicans do to keep their morale up? They invent the craziest poll to tell the most ridiculous story. It is an actual, real life, fake poll. Here is the poll from the National Republican Congressional Committee, the campaign arm working to elect Republicans to the U.S. House. It is a poll of 1,014 “swing voters” in “battleground...

    Mark Ruffalo’s new show is under fire after the show contained an animal cruelty scene. I Know This Much is True, on HBO, received a letter from PETA after the show aired. The letter asks the organization to stop using wild animals in entertainment, according to the Daily News. “From elephants on ‘Westworld’ and the bear on ‘Silicon Valley’ to the tiger on ‘Vice Principals’ and the lion on ‘The Leftovers’ and now a monkey, believe us when we say that animals aren’t looking for their ’15 minutes of fame’ — in fact, they’re desperate to avoid it,” Lauren Thomasson, the senior manager of animals in film and television for PETA, wrote in a letter to HBO President Casey Bloys.

    Laura Amy showed off her wild side in a steamy Instagram upload shared with fans Monday morning, flaunting her insane curves in a completely see-through animal-print mini dress from Fashion Nova. The item was a vibrant, neon-green shade that complemented her glowing tan and was adorned with a black print emulating tiger stripes. While the look was not cleavage-baring — the skintight dress was a turtleneck style that didn’t leave any décolletage on display — the outfit left her voluptuous assets well within eyesight for her audience to admire thanks to its sheer nature.

    A new report has found an alarmingly high rate of coronaviruses in wildlife about to be served at restaurants in Vietnam. While the country is looking to stop importing imperiled animals to eat, it has yet to do so, and there are still “wildlife restaurants” that have rats, bats, civet cats, snakes, bear, monkeys and pangolins on the menu. In a study that appears in the pre-print journal bioRxiv, researchers found 56 percent of wild rats were infected with a coronavirus by the time they were ready to be served at restaurants — double from when the animals were first caught. Coronavirus detection rates in rodent populations sampled in their “natural” habitat were around 0 to 2 percent, jumping to 21 percent by the time they had been caught by traffickers. Due to confinement conditions, by the time the animals hit “wet” markets, they had a 32 percent contamination...
    President TrumpDonald John TrumpOklahoma venue management asks Trump campaign for health plan ahead of rally Pompeo slams Bolton account as spreading 'lies,' 'fully-spun half-truths' and 'falsehoods' Twitter flags Trump tweet featuring fake CNN chyron as 'manipulated media' MORE told Axios in a new interview that his rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday, his first in months, will be "a wild evening." The rally marks the Trump campaign's first big in-person event since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, and has drawn criticism from public health officials who worry the arena will reach its over 19,000 seat capacity and be a "super spreader" of the disease.  The campaign is planning to give temperature checks and have hand sanitizer and face masks at the door for rallygoers, but asked by Axios if he will require guests to wear the masks, Trump said: "I recommend people do what they want." Attendees have also been asked to sign...
    This bus is moving out of the wild. An abandoned 1940s-era bus that was popularized in the 1996 book "Into the Wild," and later its film adaptation, was removed from its longtime spot in central Alaska after an increasing number of tourists found themselves in harm’s way while trying to visit the landmark.

    Fox News host Jesse Watters accused Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard of engaging in a “political overcharge” of the former police officer who shot Rayshard Brooks last week. Howard on Wednesday announced 11 separate charges against former Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe, including felony murder, for the series of actions last Friday that led to Brooks’ death. Discussing the charges on Wednesday’s “The Five,” Watters speculated that Howard’s “political overcharge” could be because he “is in a hotly contested runoff for reelection and he’s under state investigation for pocketing six figures that was supposed to go to the state to fight crime and it went into his personal bank account.” WATCH: “So, that’s what that’s all about, but he’s playing with fire,” Watters continued. “We are looking at a huge crime wave in the next decade because of this. This is the Ferguson effect on steroids. Police now, especially...

    DUNEDIN, New Zealand — They call one section of the stadium The Zoo, and it’s easy to see why: thousands of university students in team colors standing on their seats, steadying trays of beer, swaying to music and erupting with joy when their team scores. “Craziness,” is how 20-year-old student Charlotte Power described the scene. “Dancing, partying. Hopefully no fights.” New Zealand on Saturday became one of the first nations in the world to welcome hordes of fans back into a packed sports stadium, thanks to the country’s remarkable success in eliminating the coronavirus. As countries try to reopen after lockdowns, the evening rugby match marked a milestone of sorts, and its importance wasn’t lost on fans. After instituting a strict lockdown in March, New Zealand has not reported any new cases of the coronavirus for more than three weeks, and says all those who contracted the disease have now...
    PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A federal judge on Thursday barred Providence from revoking the liquor and entertainment licenses of a strip club closed by the city over allegations of prostitution on the premises. U.S. District Court Chief Judge John J. McConnell Jr. granted the Wild Zebra’s request for a preliminary injunction blocking the city from enforcing a Board of Licenses‘ decision to pull the club’s licenses, The Providence Journal reported. McConnell found that the board’s actions left the club without a way to seek meaningful judicial review and unable to engage in the constitutionally protected expressive conduct of nude dancing.

    NEW DELHI (AP) — Indian police on Friday arrested a man accused of causing the death of a pregnant elephant that died after biting a pineapple stuffed with firecrackers that exploded in its mouth. The 15-year-old elephant was unable to eat after the injury and died in a river in Pallakad in southern Kerala state on May 27, state forest officer Surendra Kumar said. Details of the suspect were not immediately available. The state forest department announced the arrest and said it is investigating whether he was a poacher or a farmer who wanted to kill the elephant to prevent it from damaging crops. “Bait bombs” made from food stuffed with explosives are common in India, particularly in southern states, and are used mostly to hunt wild boars for meat. The elephant’s death caused an outrage among animal rights activists. Maneka Gandhi, a former minister from the governing Bharatiya Janata...

More than 200 people descended around 1 a.m. Tuesday on the streetwear store amid ongoing and largely unchecked lawlessness in the neighborhood, according to Brooklyn-based artist WhIsBe, who filmed the encounter. “It seemed like a very organized, disorganized group,” he told The Post on Wednesday.

    Curfew-defying looters with free rein beat a cop to the ground in a disturbing scene caught on video, set fires on streets and ransacked stores in the Bronx late Monday night into early Tuesday. The chaos finally prompted Mayor Bill de Blasio to dispatch extra police officers to the area, the New York Post reported Tuesday. “Fordham is on fire,” Uptown Collective tweeted, showing a half dozen fires burning along a trash-strewn Fordham Road in the West Bronx. “This is an ominous sign familia,” the tweet said, the Post reported. “This is not good for communities of color. Protest is called for but destroying our own community is not. Stay safe.” The cop being beaten was caught on cellphone video and posted on Twitter by a NYPD police union. It shows the uniformed officer on the ground as a man attacks him. A second man then runs up and throws an object at...
