Britain: The Badger Cull

Britain: The Badger Cull

Deutsche Welle (Oct. 24, 2012) — The British government has postponed the decision for badgers to be culled as part of measures to protect cattle from bovine tuberculosis. Badgers are made responsible for the transmission of the disease and as many as 100,000 badgers could be culled. Every year, dairy farmers in Gloucestershire and Somersethave have to slaughter thousands of cows for bovine TB control. Although badgers are a protected species, Conservative Environment Secretary Owen Paterson has given the go-ahead for the cull. But the cull has angered animal rights activists as well as many British scientists. Their protests led to the postponement of the cull to the summer of 2013.

Wearable Technology Is Going To The Dogs With Voyce

TheStreet (June 25, 2014) — Wearable technology has gone to the dogs. No, really, Voyce has designed a wearable device for dogs that measures a range of key vital signs like heart rate and respiratory rate. The device also tracks the dog's sleeping patterns and activity levels. Voyce's online tool that displays the data also provides a library of information if you have questions about your dog's vital signs. The collar is lightweight and not much heavier or bigger than a normal collar. Unfortunately, it doesn't say what your dog is thinking, but our guess is that he just wants another treat or go for a walk. Video provided by TheStreet
