New Arkansas vet tech legislation poses risks to veterinary patients, clients, and practices

AVMA News

The Arkansas state legislature recently adopted a law that will expand veterinary technician specialists’ (VTS) scope of practice. Another bill still under consideration would dilute the educational background required for veterinary technicians to qualify for licensure. The Arkansas Veterinary Medical Association (ArVMA) and the AVMA actively oppose both measures over concerns of patient safety, client service, food safety, public health, and recognizing and continuing to ensure the value of de

Just had my lifer Cinereous Vulture this morning

10,000 Birds

I woke up this morning and checked social media before the coffee, only to notice a post: “MEGA – a Cinereous Vulture [a.k.a. Eurasian Black Vulture] with a satellite transmitter spent the night in the arable fields near Belgrade”. Superficially similar but unrelated to New World condors, it is huge, more pterodactyl-like than bird-like. I dipped it some years back — I am not aware of any local sightings since, and to this day have never seen it.

Reddit Animals

what is the consensus on zoos? I enjoy animals and love seeing them, but I feel so bad that they’re all captive and not out in the wild. Zoo websites tend to emphasize how they’re being ‘super helpful!’ by keeping the animals safe but I’m not sure how I feel. TLDR: zoos?

10,000 Birds

Last Sunday afternoon we travelled out of town to once again bird from our vehicle across the flooded highway across Roebuck Plains. There are still many Egrets and the Magpie Geese are all on the move with their young. The number of Pied Herons in the area varies from two to twenty four at the moment. There are also many pairs of Black-winged Stilt with young and that is what I thought I was initially photographing in the header photo above.

Frustratingly Common

10,000 Birds

Something that’s irked me more often than I’d like to admit is the inclusion of the word “common” in the name of a bird. It seems almost insulting, sure it allows some insight into the abundance of the particular species in a particular area at a point in time, but all birds are rare and exotic somewhere. The irony is most apparent when a bird so named is a legitimate rarity – I get excited whenever I see a Common Ground Dove , for example.

Can animals that typically live on both land and water live without being in the water?

Reddit Animals

Apologies for the weirdly worded title. I know that there are certain animals like frogs, capybaras, alligators, beavers and turtles that live on both land and water. If any of these animals were put into a place where they had access only to drinking water, but no body of water to swim in, does this jeopardize their ability to survive? Just something I got curious about surfing animal related youtube videos.

Brooklyn alligator facing ‘long process’ as it continues its recovery at Bronx Zoo — Bronx Times

Reddit Animals

Sharks in the water may be a given in some places; alligators too. But in New York City, they’re not thought of as common, which is why it was such a shock when an alligator was found and saved from a lake in Brooklyn last month. The now infamous female gator named Godzilla found a new, temporary home at the Bronx Zoo as it not only recovers from the cold as a result of its abandonment, but from a bathtub stopper it swallowed — it is unclear whether this happened before or after it arrived at th

Low pitched screaming sound from animal at 1 AM

Reddit Animals

I took my dog out last night around 1 AM and was frightened by this low pitch screaming sound coming from off in the distance. It did not sound human so I am wondering what type of animal it may be. I am in the upper part of South Carolina in a developed neighborhood with lots of woods behind us. We have some farms with livestock nearby as well. Genuinely curious what it might be.

Which species?

Reddit Animals

Was hiking through the southern Japanes Alps today (near Fuji) and ran into these tracks and droppings a few times. I was curious to which animal they belonged. The paw prints scream bear to me, but the droppings seemed to small (they were maybe 50cm away from each other). Then again I know nothing about animals or tracks so I'm just guessing Anybody knows which animal this could be?
