Senegal's birdlife hit by disease


Senegal had a rocky start to 2021 as it was reported that there was an outbreak of H5N1 bird flu on a poultry farm in the Thies region resulting in the culling of about 100,000 chickens. This was followed by a discovery last week that around 750 dead pelicans in a UNESCO World Heritage site in the northern part of the country had also tested positive for the disease.

Bigfoot charge on the cards

Want to join the hunt for one of the most legendary mythical creatures? Well, soon you might be needing a license to go hunting for the infamous Bigfoot! Justin Humphrey, who is a member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives, has proposed a bill that would allow individuals to acquire a license in order to hunt the creature.

This all forms part of his bigger plan as he hopes to raise at least $25,000 that will be a reward for the individual who manages to capture, kill or trap Bigfoot. Any additional funds raised will be donated towards conservation.
