Mountain Lion Injures Dogs Near Glenwood | Postindependent.com

Wildlife officers said the incident should be taken seriously and urged residents to always keep an eye on pets, livestock and small children. An attack like this is rare, especially in a residential area, but it can happen, said Area Wildlife Manager Perry Will. Lions are typically shy and reclusive, but they are also opportunistic apex predators. Because dogs have four legs, they resemble a prey item and a lion will take advantage of an opportunity for an easy meal. Will added that lions do not consider humans prey, but because they are large and powerful, people should be cautious and aware of the potential for interactions. There is no need for alarm or panic, Will added. But we do urge a healthy respect for lions. Wildlife officials say people can do several things to reduce the possibility of attracting wild animals to their neighborhood. One of the most important is to avoid feeding wildlife, which attracts predators. Will and his officers will monitor the area for additional lion sightings.

Stolen uranium compounds not only dirty bomb ingredients within ISIS’ grasp, say experts | Fox News

Those cities and other ones under the group’s control include hospitals, research facilities and industrial sites. The uranium compounds that were stolen from the science research labs of Mosul University were heavily diluted, and several experts downplayed their effectiveness even for a dirty bomb. But having captured a huge part of Iraq, one of the worlds most feared terrorist organizations could easily get its hands on hospital waste, mining materials and other research equipment that, coupled with a conventional explosive, could produce a dirty bomb. The mere threat is enough to accomplish their goal, said Matthew Bunn, a professor with the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University. The intent of a dirty bomb is to cause panic with the fear of the radioactivity, Bunn said. But that may be more difficult to do if governments can quickly confirm that the amount of radioactivity involved is not a threat to anybody.
