Mammals in the News
Next, news of cats outside of where you might expect them: Mountain Lions in the San Francisco Bay, and Cheetahs in Iran. While I was saddened to hear there are only 2000 Lions left in Kenya, this conservation project looks promising.
In Australia, researchers have just discovered a new species of Antechinus, while in Canada some research seems to revolve around killing wolves by their hundred (I imagine there might be another side to this story.. I hope so). Perhaps this is one reason why there are now far more wolves in Europe than North America, with European populations of Lynx, Bears and Wolverines all also increasing.
Finally an interesting article about Ebola and a possible link with bats.
