Known to biologists as Bear 211 but to tourists as Scarface, the grizzly was shot in November 2015 and with the Yellowstone grizzly bear listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, the US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is investigating the matter.

Weasels have a reputation for being mischievous, and for good reason, apparently. One of the sneaky predators is believed to have shut down the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), considered to be one of the world’s most important scientific instruments.

The 17-mile superconducting machine, designed to smash protons together at close to the speed of light, went offline late Thursday.

“We had electrical problems, and we are pretty sure this was caused by a small animal,” said Arnaud Marsollier, the head of press for CERN, the organization that runs the $7 billion particle collider in Switzerland.

Finland has been discussing whether to leave the euro over growing frustration at the poor state of the country’s economy and high unemployment. The motion was discussed in parliament after a petition gathered more than 50,000 signatures.

The petition was signed by 53,000 people and was filed by MEP Paavo Vayrynen. His main argument for leaving the euro is regarding fears that Finland might lose economic and political independence if it remains in the euro area.

Public support for fracking has hit a record low among Brits, while support for the use of renewable energy has reached an all-time high, according to a new government survey.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change’s (DECC) public attitudes tracker has revealed a dramatic shift in Britons’ feelings about energy issues in the last few years.

After surveying 2105 households, the DECC found that just 19 percent respondents claimed they supported fracking, down from 23 percent last December. The percentage of those who said they oppose fracking has also risen to 31 percent.
