SOLVING LITTER WITH CROWS! A Dutch company is training crows to pick up cigarette butts for pay (treats)!






I found this article fascinating!

Imagine if we could train ourselves NOT to litter… but after that already isn’t working, perhaps a GREAT idea is for birds to help!

Crows are exceptionally intelligent, social birds with a natural instinct towards scavenging. They are so intelligent, in fact, that they’ve been known to bring gifts to people who feed them regularly. Sociality and generosity aside, however, their scavenging instincts could also be leveraged to help clean parks, city streets, and other public areas beset with litter. Check out this video by our own Hannah Watson on how crows might just chip in to pick up after their less intelligent human counterparts.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW A HORSE IS PUT UNDER ANESTHESIA FOR SURGERY AND THEN AWAKENED – have you seen an equine surgery table? Very interesting…






The only time I have ever witnessed an equine surgery was when Mama Tess went in for her coffin bone debridement.

To be honest, I had to leave once she was unconscious… seeing her all floppy and being moved around with chains attached to cranes – was a bit much for me.

HOWEVER, the actual surgery tables, how they moved, how anesthesia works and how vets have created safe recovery rooms, is fascinating to me.

Just the process of positioning a 1200lb dead weight onto a surgery table…, let alone the surgery itself, is amazing.

Here is an article about Pioneer Equine Hospital surgery and a short video about equine surgery prep and recovery.  Watch the video.  A whole new world!
