Dogs are the unsung heroes of the conservation movement

Train, aka Mr. T or Big Brown Monster, has made four trips to Misiones, Argentina, a rugged and rainy province with an economy that relies primarily on agriculture and logging, as well as some tourism. He’s not a sightseer – at least not in the usual way. Train detects the scat, or feces, of jaguar, puma, ocelot, oncilla and bush dog. What he finds helps Washington University researchers analyze the paths the animals travel. This allows them to plan habitat corridors that protect the ability of wildlife to travel through territory while limiting their impact on surrounding environments, which include public and private wildlife reserves, privately owned plantations and farms, and roads and pathways.

SPCA Pet of the Week: Haiku

Our pet of the week is Haiku. Haiku is a gentle and timid 6-year-old female domestic shorthair mix who enjoys relaxation and the thought of a home for the holidays, not to mention a warm hidey hole. If you give her some pets and just a small amount of time, you will see her come alive. She is extremely affectionate and will lean into you for more love. Haiku is patiently waiting for someone to curl up and relax with. Here is a haiku inspired by Haiku herself: Gentle and timid/ Awaiting a tender touch/ Paw in hand – you’re home.
