South Georgia Prepares to cull Reindeer

On the island of South Georgia, reindeer have caused much problem to the fragile ecosystem. The 3000 reindeer that live on the island have caused havoc to the plants and animals. But how did the reindeer get there? Reindeer live in the arctic, not the antarctic, but when Norwegians came to Antarctica, they needed meat while on whaling missions in 1911. They brought 10 reindeer with them. The reindeer have multiplied rapidly. Because the Norwegians brought them there, they have the task of killing them. But, is the killing of animals ok, even in the worst circumstances. Tell me whether you think they should kill them, or not. Email me at ronaks@goanimals.org, or post a comment on this post.

Labradoodle Mistaken for Lion

Giant Squid Filmed in Natural Habitat

It is very rare to even see a giant squid in its natural habitat. Amazingly, some scientists managed to get this video.
