Bottlenose Dolphin Attacks

The latest attack occurred on July 26th, 2014 which a man was attacked by a Bottlenose Dolphin. The dolphin was aggressive and slapped the man with its tail and pushed him under the water. He was attacked off the coast of County Clare, Ireland. Before that incident two women were attacked by Bottlenose Dolphins within ten days of each other and both sustained serious injuries and taken to the hospital last summer of 2013. The two women were attacked near Sherkin Island in Ireland.

The IWDG stated that " Bottlenose Dolphins are not cute and cuddle. Do not confuse the shape of their jawline with a smile, they can and do cause serious injury to humans and have killed in the past."

Attack On Goats By A Werewolf

On this island the people really believe a werewolf is killing the goats. A island in the Philippine's has resorted to having a nightly guards to patrol so their animals will be protected. The Sibale Island, chief of police, according to the Inspector Brian Odien, livestock's have been dying for a few years surrounding mysterious deaths, so now it is believed that a werewolf is responsible. The islanders believe the werewolf is killing off the livestock of goats which over two hundred have been killed and found with their blood sucked out and internal organs removed.

Fear is beginning to mount from the people of the island that once the goats are gone that it will turn and go after the humans. The claim is that attacks only happen on a full moon. "Department Of Agriculture Regional Director Cipriano Santiago claims that more than 57 farmers have lost animals over the last two years. People have been advised to hold their goats in a fenced area or under their houses where they can be given protection." Residents have been advised not to confront the animal by themselves but to seek out help.

I will in a week or so be writing about the legend's of werewolf. While researching I found much on the topic and one site where they claimed they were werewolf's, so I asked if any would be willing to prove it. Left them my email address, so far the only response was I just made a evil werewolf mad, and they even had a population count of 1575 werewolves. Amazing.

Werewolf's

What do you think are werewolf's real or not?

Great White Shark Was Killed By A Mystery Sea Creature

A Great White Shark that had been tagged by scientist washed up on the beach in Australia, that was 2.7 meters long. The researches had been monitoring this shark so they could track its movements. Took four months for the electronic tag to be found and it was clear that something larger had eaten the shark.

Researches have thought that something much larger , like an unidentified behemoth which may be something that hasn't been seen yet. When the shark disappeared it went to a depth of 580 miles down in much colder water. Thinking about it what would attack a huge shark and then eat it, what could be that big in the ocean? A question that may be answered one day if a new species is discovered.

Note About Endangered Species

There will be more on endangered species in another article. The list is very long and the many reasons why their on a endanger list varies somewhat. Being an animal lover and making friends with animals which my friends say is very strange, I try to do my part in defending animals rights. Some animals were never meant to be household pets but were meant to roam free. I have squirrels, rabbits, groundhog, and many birds I feed daily. A couple rabbits and a few squirrels will allow me to hold them or pet them, not recommending that anyone try this as it can be unsafe. I've feed deer, and swans from my hand in the wild plus tamed a wild half dog half coyote and trained it so now my friend has a wonderful pet. I caught it when it was about six months old when I lived out in the country and it ran with a pack but for some reason they abandon it so it continued to hang around my home, made friends then trained it.
