A 6-year-old Canadian girl is fighting for her life after being mauled by four husky dogs, hospital officials in Montreal said Wednesday.
The girl, whose name has not been released, was attacked by the dogs while walking home from school Monday.
The girl was bitten all over her body and was saved by a witness who chased the dogs off.
An 8,000-pound elephant at a Tennessee zoo backed a trainer into a wall and crushed her to death...
"At this point in time we don't believe it to be a malicious act or an aggressive act on Edie's part, but the review is ongoing to determine what happened in the barn,"
MSNBC reports that one chimp bit off the finger of its trainer last Friday, so the trainer started to scream. Her screams attracted another chimp that also attacked her.
A kindergartner at home on a day off from school was mauled to death Wednesday by two pit bulls...
A police officer who responded and arrived during the attack, pulled the dogs off Makayla and her grandmother and began treating the girl's wounds - but - the 5-year-old died on the way to the hospital of injuries police officers described as "gruesome."
The officer then shot one of the dogs as it charged toward the girl again. The second dog got away and was loose for two tense hours before police shot and killed it, too.

Sorry not a fan of Animal rights am more for human rights. The only rights Animals should have is the right not to be unnecessarily subjected to pain other than that none. Animals as far as i am concerned are a human resource that we can use as we please, be it for food, fuel, medical/scientific testing or even entertainment. Animals are a resource much like oil and coal and we should use them as such and stop trying to attach human emotions and spirit to them.
That's a joke, right? Medical testing, resources only, not capable of emotions?
I hope you're joking. I've seen some of your posts before and some seemed insightful, so I'm trying to find sarcasm in your post. Otherwise, you just lost all credibility, sorry bud, I can never take your posts seriously again.

A deer farmer in New Brunswick has apparently been killed by an animal in his herd, police say. The 55-year-old man was found with multiple antler wounds Sunday evening inside his enclosed field in Saint-Léonard, near the Quebec border.
"They would do this to small prey in the wild. They would do it, maybe, to small foxes or to small coyotes that were attacking them," Violette said.
"They put all their weight on the antlers and, for lack of a better term, they try to suffocate the prey with their antlers. They push hard on the antlers and the antlers will pierce flesh, and pierce body tissue."
Dozens of animals escaped Tuesday from a wild-animal preserve that houses bears, big cats and other beasts, and the owner later was found dead.

He said four deputies with assault rifles in a pickup truck went to the animal farm, where they found the owner, Terry Thompson, dead and all the animal cage doors open. He wouldn't say how Thompson died but said several aggressive animals were near his body when deputies arrived and had to be shot.
