Woman forced 130 guinea pigs to live in 'absolute filth' in just 25 cages

Animal care workers were left disgusted after finding 130 guinea pugs living in “absolute filth” after they were shoved into just 25 cages. 54-year-old Gina Mercer appeared in court after the fluffy rodents were found stacked on top of each other. Mercer, from Kent, has now been banned from keeping rodents for five years after being found guilty of three animal welfare offences which left most of the animals suffering from severe problems with their feet. They were kept without fresh water and were covered in filth when they were finally rescued, leading to Mercer being convicted at Dartford Magistrates’ CourtSource: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/gina-mercer-woman-forced-130-5222873

How do you fight a "guerrilla warfare mosquito"?

People in one Florida neighborhood are fighting a mosquito infestation that hasn’t come yet. A British company wants to release millions of genetically modified mosquitoes to stop the spread of two deadly diseases, reports CBS News correspondent Anna Werner. The Florida Keys have long been a vacation destination, but for decades officials have been trying to keep one visitor out: The non-native “aedes aegypti” mosquito. The tiny striped insect is resistant to most pesticides, and has the potential to spread debilitating and incurable diseases like dengue fever and chikungunya. “This is the most difficult mosquito to control on earthSource: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/florida-residents-fight-genetically-modified-mosquito-release/
