Revenge of the Creatures
The birds got things started...but eventually stole a page from their bovine buddies and changed tactics. Now, recent reptile behavior in Florida and ursine activity up north appear to demonstrate a larger trend:
Animals fighting back.
Tired of human oppression, the furry, scaly, winged, and feathered, are honing their skills and taking matters into their own, uh, hooves. It won’t be long before humanity calls on its secret weapon...but, if we’re not careful with such technology, we might end up back in the Stone Age.
(Btw, many of the above links were found at Metafilter, my favorite source for offbeat URLs.)
On a related note, signatures are needed to help animals in a California shelter. Please sign the petition and spread the word (location doesn’t matter). Special thanks to the good folks at Counterpunch for making this action alert their website of the day.
