2019 Was a Year Full Of Surprising Encounters With Bears All Around The US

It's Wild Out There!

As humans continue to take up more and more space, bears encounters are becoming more common, with the animals venturing out of the woods into more civilized areas, often in search of an easy food source — like a dumpster or snacks left behind by campers. But the summer of 2019 was extraordinary as the big, furry creatures have spent it crashing weddings, making pit stops at hotel bathrooms and other shenanigans, all over the US, as mapped in the map below.

Red pandas are adorable (even more so when they stand on their hind legs in the cutest defense mechanism ever). And no, they are not red-colored pandas (I know you're imagining that right now). A little floof has just been born at Idaho Zoo - the first ever red panda to be born there. As you can imagine, everyone is pretty excited about it.

30-50 Feral Hogs: Why This Isn't a Joke

If you've been online in the past two days, you might have noticed that the internet is erupting with memes, jokes, information, and even an interactive game, about 30-50 feral hogs. What the heck is going on, you might ask? Well, what started out as a serious question by a Twitter user amidst America's seemingly never-ending gun reform debate is nonetheless a genuine question that we must address. The famous question goes as follows: "Legit question for rural Americans - How do I kill the 30-50 feral hogs that run into my yard within 3-5 mins while my small kids play?". While the specificity of this question has driven many to hilarity, feral pigs in America are no laughing matter. They can wreak irreversible damage on ecosystems, endanger native plant and animal species, and can even harm or kill humans. Here's what the deal is with feral pigs in America.

These animals have a more symbolic meaning to our country than we probably think about during the rest of the year, so this holiday is a great time to honor them. Via: Vet Street

We all know pets make the workplace a happier and more productive place. A new survey has found that 65 percent of American pet parents believe that having pets in the workplace would benefit company culture.
