Man survives an attack by 3 grizzly bears near Wapiti, Wyoming

Grizzly bear
A Wapiti man is charged by three large grizzlies at once, and he survived. Larry Dickerson said he also taught the bears a lesson they won't soon forget.

This is the time of year that grizzly bears are just out of their dens, and very hungry. That's why Wyoming's Game and Fish Department is holding bear seminars to keep people safe in bear country. That's most of Northwest Wyoming.

Biologists say grizzlies are not necessarily forest animals. They evolved in open grassy areas, like this right behind me. So, they could be found in a lot of places in Northwest Wyoming where people don't expect to find them."

But, Larry Dickerson is not surprised to find grizzlies anywhere near his home. He's encountered them many times in Alaska, and Wyoming. He took the Alaskan grizzly on his wall with a wooden bow.

He faced three charging bears while horn hunting in the back country April 3rd.

'Living in fear': Neighbours say they want police to act quickly
The beast is now being hunted by armed police after the 77 year old was found in a pool of blood

A pensioner eaten by a wolf was just 50 metres from her home when she was savaged by the beast.

The half-eaten remains of Lima Ankudinova, 77, were discovered in a pool of blood by horrified neighbours.

The elderly woman was making her way home through thick snow when she was attacked by the animal, which is now being hunted by armed police.

Leopard
Two people, including an eight-year-old boy, were seriously injured when they were attacked by a leopard at Pipli village in Dhar district under Nalcha police station in the wee hours of Friday.

The incident happened when Gulabsingh and his son Sunil were sleeping outside their house. According to Gulabsingh, the animal first tried to pull Sunil into the forest.

"As soon as the leopard pulled him by the ear, he awoke and raised an alarm. On hearing his cries, I ran towards the wild cat to save my son," he said.

When Gulabsingh tried to chase the leopard, the animal let go off Sunil and attacked his father before fleeing.

The injured were rushed to the district hospital by locals.

A three-and-a-half-year-old girl was mauled to death by a leopard in Khaneri village in Rampur, 135 km from here, on Friday night.

Riya was attacked when she went out to answer the call of nature. Her mother realised Riya was missing when she did not respond to her calls. The mother immediately raised the alarm and a search was launched. However, night-long effort by local residents and Forest Department staff bore no result.

The mutilated body of the girl was found on Saturday morning, about 500 m away from where she went missing.

The Divisional Forest Officer (DFO), Rampur, sanctioned an interim relief of Rs 25,000 for the family.

A sinkhole on one of Longview busiest roads is delaying traffic.

The 2 1/2 foot wide, 3 foot deep hole is in the outside northbound lane of the 1600 block of Judson Road, between Iris Circle and Montclair Street. Longview police and street crews are on the scene, barricading the lane and waiting to fix the problem.

Judson Road handles more than 17,000 cars a day.

Comment: More than 70 sinkholes have opened up around the globe in just the past week, including one that locals said 'leads straight to hell'.

Major Earthquake activity along the U.S. West Coast, multiple 4.0M+ events at volcanic areas

Cerro Prieto Volcano, Baja, CA
Another magnitude 4.2 earthquake has occurred off the coast of Oregon.

In the past 7 days, up to 2am CDT April 11, 2015, there have been a series of noteworthy earthquakes along the Southern, and Western portions of the North American Craton.

A series of earthquakes began off the coast of Oregon at the fresh undersea lava fields, moving South to the undersea lava fields (and actual volcano) off the coast of Northern California, moving further South to Pisgah Volcano + Red Mountain, then even further South to Cerro Prieto Volcano in Baja California/Mexico border region.

These volcanic locations are VERY old, and have been dormant for eons. To see earthquake activity at these locations means pressure is building in the region for a larger release of energy.

Information on this current 4.2M in Oregon from the USGS

Here is the 4.2M event off the coast of Oregon from April 11 2015

4.7M off the coast of California near the Gorda ridge volcanic fields

4.3M + 4.0M back to back events at Cerro Prieto volcano in Baja

Comment: Cause and effect, rock and roll. If the theories are correct, we have a ticket to ride. The involvement of volcanos and earthquakes come as an interesting pairing with cosmic circumstances and earth changes in the making. The earth's slow-down in rotation can produce devastating effects such as earthquakes and volcanic activity. The immense reservoir of energy stored in the Earth's rotation is susceptible to any change in the rotation rate. Volcanoes sense pressure changes below the lithosphere causing them to vent, which can cause or add to earthquake magnitude.

Elephant on a charge
Another woman trampled to death in elephant attack at Mayapur at Surajpur district on Tuesday. Herd of about 35 elephants present in the region have already destroyed a dozen homes in last two days.

Forest officials said that 25-year-old Pushpa was going towards her home with her two and half-year-old daughter when elephants attacked on her from behind. The incident took place early in morning when it was dark, official added.

Pushpa was pushed and chased few meters and she threw her daughter off the ground, before tuckers trampled her to death. Officials say it's eleventh death in tusker attack in north Chhattisgarh, while on Sunday, three women were also trampled to death at Korba district.

Is Warm Anomaly in Pacific Ocean - the 'blob' - linked to weird weather across the US?

Scientists say a warm patch of water in the Pacific Ocean known as 'the blob' may be causing this year's weird weather. Here, a plot shows how much warmer the waters were off the coast of Washington in April 2014 compared to the period between 1981 and 2010.
The one common element in recent weather has been oddness. The West Coast has been warm and parched; the East Coast has been cold and snowed under. Fish are swimming into new waters, and hungry seals are washing up on California beaches.

A long-lived patch of warm water off the West Coast, about 1 to 4 degrees Celsius (2 to 7 degrees Fahrenheit) above normal, is part of what's wreaking much of this mayhem, according to two University of Washington papers to appear in Geophysical Research Letters, a journal of the American Geophysical Union.

"In the fall of 2013 and early 2014 we started to notice a big, almost circular mass of water that just didn't cool off as much as it usually did, so by spring of 2014 it was warmer than we had ever seen it for that time of year," said Nick Bond, a climate scientist at the UW-based Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean, a joint research center of the UW and the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Bond coined the term "the blob" last June in his monthly newsletter as Washington's state climatologist. He said the huge patch of water - 1,000 miles in each direction and 300 feet deep - had contributed to Washington's mild 2014 winter and might signal a warmer summer.

Ten months later, the blob is still off our shores, now squished up against the coast and extending about 1,000 miles offshore from Mexico up through Alaska, with water about 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer than normal. Bond says all the models point to it continuing through the end of this year.

The new study explores the blob's origins. It finds that it relates to a persistent high-pressure ridge that caused a calmer ocean during the past two winters, so less heat was lost to cold air above. The warmer temperatures we see now aren't due to more heating, but less winter cooling.

Co-authors on the paper are Meghan Cronin at NOAA in Seattle and a UW affiliate professor of oceanography, Nate Mantua at NOAA in Santa Cruz and Howard Freeland at Canada's Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

The authors look at how the blob is affecting West Coast marine life. They find fish sightings in unusual places, supporting recent reports that West Coast marine ecosystems are suffering and the food web is being disrupted by warm, less nutrient-rich Pacific Ocean water.

Comment: This 'warm anomaly' could be attributed to increased quantities of CO2, methane outgassing and heat are coming up from below, i.e. passing up through the oceans from within the planet, heating and acidifying the planet's oceans.

There has been a sharp rise in observable volcanic activity on our planet's surface in recent times. However, the vast majority of the planet's volcanoes are located underwater.

The weather is getting more weird, more extreme.

We are also seeing an increasing number of bizarre, odd (perhaps even mutated species), previously unknown and mysterious creatures being discovered recently, together with increases in abnormal animal and marine behavior. All over the world such 'strange' and 'unusual' incidents are quickly becoming the norm, as are mass fish die offs.

Are these more 'signs of the times'? If so, what do they mean?
The fact remains that there is a lot of hard evidence suggesting that, far from 'global warming', we're already in the process of entering a new ice age (which could end up being a lot bigger than the last one), accompanied by increasing cataclysmic activity such as major destructive storms, earthquakes, and volcanism, among other 'anomalous' goings-on all over the planet. So no wonder the animals are behaving strangely. Maybe they're trying to tell us something important. The question is, is anyone listening?

House-sized boulder falls on and blocks Ohio highway

Transportation officials say crews are working to clear a southern Ohio highway after a boulder the size of a two-story house fell onto the road overnight.

Kathleen Fuller with the Ohio Department of Transportation says the rock fell around 2:30 a.m. Friday onto the westbound lane of U.S. 52 near Coal Grove, across the Ohio River from Ashland, Kentucky. The boulder's estimated to be about 1,500 tons.

Officials say the area is susceptible to falling rock, as cliffs border the north side of the highway.
