Can Pigeons Really Diagnose Cancer?

https://www.audubon.org/news/can-pigeons-really-diagnose-cancer

glog - Thanks for that article. Here's what I posted in the science news thread earlier, with video.

Study finds pigeons uncommonly good at distinguishing cancerous from normal breast tissue.

(Maybe human pathologists should be trained with Cheetos?)

Here's the paper from the University of Iowa: Pigeons (Columba livia) as Trainable Observers of Pathology and Radiology Breast Cancer Images

Brothers free eagle from trap

http://www.thesudburystar.com/2015/11/26/brothers-free-eagle-from-trap



Thanks, T40!  I loved this wonderful story about the brothers finding and freeing that beautiful Bald Eagle from a hunter's trap in the woods!  That Bald Eagle sure was lucky that they came by and so successfully freed him.  WOO HOO!

Brothers free eagle from trap

New video of the brothers freeing the eagle from the trap!
https://www.facebook.com/michael.fletcher.984/videos/10153767102980948/



Oh WOWOW, T40!  And what a gorgeous Bald Eagle!  Thanks for sharing the video of the brothers getting that Bald Eagle out of the trap in the woods.  I'm glad the Eagle was able to fly when they released him (as told in the accompanying news article).  What a lucky Bald Eagle that those two brothers came along when they did and managed to get the eagle free and released - though it looked like they could've been a little easier with him.  And the lovely Golden Retriever stayed mostly calm and well-behaved but probably scared the Bald Eagle like crazy, considering the eagle's trauma.  That Eagle must've been in a major load of stress!  These two young men did a wonderful thing.  I hope the Wildlife Office was able to contact the hunter who set the trap, as was mentioned in the news article.  P.S.  Hope you get your selfie with a Bald Eagle one day, too.   :D ;)   (But I hope it is not with a bird caught in a hunter's trap!)
