World Wildlife Fund Praises Disney Decision to Drop Shark Fin Soup from the Menu
We applaud Disney for making the right decision to remove shark fin from their menu because of their commitment to conservation and responsible consumption, says Ginette Hemley, Vice President for Species Conservation. Many shark populations are under attack by man. Despite their fierce reputation, sharks are preyed upon by humans for their meat, teeth and as the ultimate fishing trophy. Disney's action today helps pull sharks from the jaws of yet another threat. WWF-US has an on-going partnership with Disney's Animal Kingdom to enhance biodiversity education and address sustainable consumption with leaders in education and industry. This decision shows their commitment to ocean conservation and working with the conservation community to protect marine biodiversity. UEL - PR

Postman plagued by jealous pheasant
A Devon postman is facing a daily assault on his round - from a drives his van on his 12-mile daily round in Swimbridge. So far the cock pheasant has injured Mr Patton's hand and leg, and has tried to sneak into his postal van.

The postie said: I think it is the red colour of the van which is triggering the aggression. Pheasants have spurs on their legs, and it flies and tries to get me with them. I think it sees me as a giant pheasant which it has got to see off. It is totally obsessed by me and the van. I have been attacked by dogs in the past but never by a pheasant.

Mr Patton says he now runs the gauntlet every day along a fifty-yard lane when he collects or delivers to a farm at one end and a cottage at the other. He says the bird sometimes changes its tactics by hiding or cutting corners to get ahead of him for a confrontation. (UTFPR)
