Black Bear Breaks Into Hotel Bathroom, Peacefully Naps On Sink Counter

As summer comes to a close, there a couple of things we won't miss. Among them are mosquitoes. We take time during the spring and summer to repair holes in window screens or doors to make sure the bloodthirsty insects don't slip through. Sometimes successfully, other times not so much. As it turns out, in Big Sky, Montana, there are much larger creatures that windows and doors should be secured from. At Buck's T-4 Lodge in Big Sky, one such intruder got into the hotel via shimmying its way through a ladies' bathroom window that was apparently ajar. The culprit, a young black bear, got into the bathroom and, instead of leaving, it chose to hop onto the bathroom counter and lie down for a snooze in the sink. Hotel employees sought to let the bear leave on its own terms, but it was ve...

The Likely Root of the Plastic Surgery Boom? Age Discrimination

And in many cases, we're willing to go to great lengths for the sake of our looks. But according to a new study, our penchant for plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures may not merely be rooted in our own vanity. It could actually be tied to widespread age discrimination -- in other words, our systemic fear of aging. Plastic surgery is becoming more widely accepted, with more people willing to go under the knife (or needle). The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that U.S. residents spent more than $15 billion dollars on combined surgica...

Climate Change Threatens U.S. Recreational and Commercial Fishing

In 2017, there were approximately 11.6 million youth participants (aged between six and 17 years) in fishing in the United States. Although there are a staggering number of people who may not want to admit how dire global warming might be, there's little doubt that we're starting to feel the effects. From increased instances of flooding to extended allergy seasons, scientists are quick to point out that it can all be traced back to climate change. And as ocean temperatures continue to rise, there's another consequence of our unwillingness to protect the planet: the practice of fishing may be in real trouble. So whether you're one of the 49 million Americans who participate in freshwater, saltwater, or fly fishing as a hobby during the average year or you contribute to (or benefit from) the...
