In the big picture, mammals don’t constitute a large segment of Ohio’s animal diversity, especially since nearly 20 percent of Ohio’s mammals that occurred at the time of European settlement are extirpated.

During a burglary simulation, three dogs in three different homes barked when their homes were approached, but none tried to bite the intruder. Dogs know instinctively how to fight another dog, but most will not attack a person, says the professional dog trainer who conducted the experiment.

South African police say a suspected poacher was eaten by a pride of lions at a big game park in the province of Limpopo, where a growing number of lion poaching cases have been recorded in recent years. The deceased has not yet been identified.

Police say the animals ate much of the man's body and he is yet to be formally identified. They believe he was a poacher because a loaded hunting rifle was found near the remains.

The combination of high student loan debt and a high-stress job is causing "serious psychological distress" among veterinarians younger than 45, but only about half of those reporting distress have sought help, a survey by the AVMA and Merck Animal Health showed. OVMA member and researcher Dr. Linda Lord said a lingering stigma around mental health issues and demanding work hours prevent many who need help from getting it.

Vets in their mid-40s and below are “overstressed and undervalued,” a new study finds

Widespread concern about the global decline in pollinators—particularly the honeybee—and the associated loss of pollination services has sparked efforts among conservationists to protect the honeybee. Some researchers, however, disagree with this tactic, citing evidence that honeybees can actually harm wild pollinator species.

Maybe honeybees get too much attention. They are agricultural animals, like sheep or cattle, and they sometimes make life harder for wild bees. In fact, the bees in true peril are the wild ones.

Owls' unusually large eyes—which can be seen through their unusually large earholes—offer a behind-the-scenes peek at their visual system, showcasing the evolutionary adaptations in sight and hearing that make the birds so successful at stealthy nighttime hunting.

Some say that eyes are the windows to the soul. But in some owls, the ears are windows to the animals' eyeballs.

Filter feeders such as whales and whale sharks ingest large amounts of microplastic as the ocean becomes increasingly polluted with plastic debris. Phthalates and heavy metals in plastics can alter hormones that regulate growth, development, metabolism and reproduction, and can accumulate in the body, researchers say.

Researchers have found that factors secreted by adult equine stem cells, also known as mesenchymal stomal cells (MSC), are able to fight bacteria commonly found in skin wounds. The techniques they are testing may eventually be applied in human medicine.

Researchers are exploring use of stem cells to treat skin wounds in horses with techniques that may translate to human patients.

An international team of researchers working with two orcas at an aquarium in France have found that the whales were able to replicate the sounds of human speech, including words like "hello" and "bye-bye," as well as series of sounds like "ah ah." The findings suggest that whales could be learning vocal patterns from each other in the wild.

A killer whale attempting to say "hello" or "Amy" did not sound as clear as, say, a parrot. But scientists found that the whales could repeat human vocalizations with some success.

An escaped cow in Poland has joined a herd of bison—the first time such an event has been recorded. She hasn't been recaptured yet, but officials plan to do so before mating season: If she were to successfully mate with a bison, an expert at the Polish Academy of Sciences says, the hybrid calf could be too large for her to deliver safely and would contaminate the the endangered bison population's gene pool.

She has been spotted twice on the outskirts of Poland's Bialowieza Forest. She appears to be healthy, but she'll need to be removed from the herd before mating season.
