pangolin

News from Science @NewsfromScience 9:30 AM – 13 Mar 2019

A global effort is growing to save the scaled mammals known as pangolins—the world’s most poached and trafficked animal.

These odd, scaled mammals are the most poached in the world—and they’re going extinct

By Amy Yee Mar. 13, 2019 , 8:00 AM

UGANDA—The small pangolin tucked its head toward its belly and curled its tail around its body. Clad in large scales, it resembled a pine cone. After a moment, the creature—a mammal, despite appearances—uncoiled and raised its slender head. Currantlike eyes blinked and a pointy nose trembled inquisitively. Its feet had tender pink soles tipped with long, curved claws, but it did not scratch or fight.

This animal, a white-bellied pangolin (Phataginus tricuspis), was lucky. It had most likely been illegally caught in a nearby forest not long ago; a tip had led the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) to rescue it. One of its brown scales had been ripped off, perhaps for use in a local witchcraft remedy. But after a long, jarring car ride on bumpy dirt roads, the pangolin was being released back into the wild in a national park. (UWA officials asked Science not to reveal the park’s name because that might tip off poachers.) Weighing just 2.5 kilograms, the pangolin heaved as if panting.

The rescue and release was part of a growing global effort to save pangolins, which face a bleak future as the world’s most poached and trafficked animal. They are in demand for both their meat and their scales, believed in some Asian countries to have medicinal properties. The past 2 months have seen record-setting seizures of pangolin body parts both in Asia and Africa.

the rest of the story

It’s stuff like this that makes me extremely upset with Asians. They make everything we use, so they are not dumb, but, they are so damn pig-ignorant stupid to think so many animal parts are somehow “magical.” Even when faced with five freaking thousand years of evidence showing that their beliefs are naught but fairy tales. Disgusting. Every single one of them. And Africans! I did not know about people from that continent doing this, but I am frankly not surprised. I advocate killing them all and having God sort them out.

The Mermaids of the Peak District. And Upright Hairy Creatures

D. Hatswell Creature Reports
Published on Jan 16, 2019

I know you guys are used to me bringing stories and experiences that some would say are completely bonkers but for me can become a little run of the mill so to speak and these days im seldom shocked by the stories and experiences that ordinary people like you or I have experienced, but even I was surprised to come across a very strange tale while looking to see what else is happening in the areas that I receive reports of British Bigfoots and Canine type creatures. Believe me or not, but our central and beautiful land-locked and windswept Peak District is said to be home to not one, but two mermaids!

Carmyllie, Bigfoot Creature seen for the third time. Leaves footprints in the snow.

D. Hatswell Creature Reports
Published on Dec 23, 2018

It was during the winter of 2012 or 2013, which if you recall was very intense. In Carmyllie, the snow was a foot deep on flat ground, and many feet deep in snow drifts. I was walking the family dog down a dirt track that provided access of a stretch of farm plots. It stretches between the main road through the area, and a wooded area further that stretches further south.

About a little further than half way down the road, I saw what appeared to be an extremely large footprint in the snow. It was slightly softened by snowfall, but was clear enough to make out that it was a bare foot shape rather than a shoe or a boot shaped, and was maybe 1.5 times the length of my boot. This made it by my judgement a little longer than a foot and a half. Judging by the way it was orientated, it seemed that whatever left it was walking from the field on one side, to the field on the other, it looked like whoever had left the print was cutting sideways across the road. Considering that the road was at that point maybe 4 foot across due to the snowdrift,

Damn, that’s a helluva sight in the lead photo, innit?

Our Deborah always has good tales. Yes, folks, these things are everywhere!

Tom is an avid outdoors man. He does a lot of fishing. This encounter has scared him and it sounds like he does not want to return to that part of the bog where this creature came up to him. If we get any more information on this sighting in Germany we will make sure to post these updates.

Deb has a tale from a former Yurropean country that once was great. This bigfoot, to me, seems to be a tad stressed out.

This is great, as she really is an arrogant idiot.

So, you may have missed this, but the way it works in America is YOU work for US. The last time somebody told Americans to sit down and shut up was 1776. If you ever learn to read, look it up. You are not only a idiot, you’re an arrogant idiot, and there is nothing more dangerous

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ✔ @AOC

Yup. If you don’t like the #GreenNewDeal, then come up with your own ambitious, on-scale proposal to address the global climate crisis.

Until then, we’re in charge – and you’re just shouting from the cheap seats. twitter.com/cmclymer/status/1099092255590236160
