Fatal Attraction: Pipi Bats Drawn to Wind Turbines

Many different species of bats are killed by wind turbines worldwide. Researchers set out to examine just how widespread the problem of bats killed by wind turbines is, and to try and figure out why bats are killed even when wind turbines are constructed in areas where there are typically low concentrations of bats.

Working Dogs vs Pet Dogs Health: Study

A new study of search and rescue dogs showed little difference in longevity or cause of death between dogs at the disaster site and dogs in a control group. The study revealed that dogs that participated in search-and-rescue efforts following 9/11 lived a similar length of time, on average, compared to a control group of search-and-rescue dogs and outlived their breed-average life spans. There was also no discernible difference in the dogs’ cause of death.
