The signed measure allows hunters to shoot hibernating bears, set up traps when wolves are resting with their cubs and use aircraft to track and kill wildlife refuges.
Habitat distraction is one of the major contributing factors to the decline of the ring-tailed lemurs of Madagascar. Along with bushmeat hunting and illegal capture, the dwindling population of the ring-tailed lemur has raised much concern in the scientific community.
A new study revealed that large marine creatures are more likely to die first during the sixth mass extinction event.
A petrified seal nearly became an orca's meal! An agile seal was able to escape the jaws of death when it managed to jump in a boat few minutes before ending up as a meal.
The chameleon's tongue is super sticky that it can lift a prey three times bigger than its size.
The 25-year old, most photographed grizzly in Yellowstone National Park was shot and killed in November 2015 by an unidentified hunter.
A massive gator of around 780 pounds was found in Florida last weekend. Of all the hunts done by Outwest Farm hunters, this was one of their biggest catches.
Researchers suggest that half of wild animal attacks could be avoided if humans were properly informed on how to act in such encounters. Their study also includes a series of basic rules that should be followed when visiting an animal's known habitat.
Yellowstone National Park is expected to kill nearly 900 of its bison this winter, marking the largest cull since 2008. Although laws state that culls are needed to manage growing populations and protect Montana's livestock for infectious diseases bison may be carrying, conservationists argue this large-scale slaughter is unnecessary and brutal -- they have filed a lawsuit claiming that the public has a right to witness this year's controversial cull.
Burn patterns evident on eggshells belonging to ancient, 500-pound flightless Australian birds were recently found by researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder. This suggests early humans hunted the bird and collected its eggs to cook.
A frozen mammoth carcass excavated from the Siberian Arctic had several spear-related injuries, which suggests humans arrived in the area 10,000 years earlier than previously thought.
Without revenue from trophy hunting permits, conservation practices in some countries may ultimately be compromised, which could exacerbate biodiversity loss. Rather than banning big game hunting altogether, researchers suggest enforcing stricter regulations.
When a one-ton giant manta ray with a wingspan of 23 feet was caught last year in gill nets made by Peruvian fisherman, conservationists called for action. These treasured marine creatures are particularly vulnerable to overfishing and bycatch.
A hunted male mountain lion was found to have a full set of teeth and whiskers growing out of its head. Experts say this bizarre growth could be the remnants of a conjoined twin that died in the womb or possibly a kind of rare tumour.
