On Cat Killers and Mental Competency

Animal Person

There have been inquiries as to the possible relationship between his dissection of cats in school and the 19 counts of cruelty he is being charged with. Weinman had participated in cat dissection in school, and that is being discussed as a possible trigger for his behavior.

Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) estimates that 2-3 million geese and 7-9 million ducks use use the basin every spring as staging grounds on the journey north. Funk WPA is about three miles long and is dissected by roads and dikes.

Review: National Geographic Backyard Guide to the Birds of North America

10,000 Birds

My birding adventures this week, while Western, were far from Interior (three words for you: Black-bellied Whistling Duck ). Fortunately for you, though, when I got home I found a review copy of National Geographic Backyard Guide to the Birds of North America by Jonathan Alderfer and Paul Hess ready and waiting to be dissected for your delectation.
