Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!
October 8, 2012 Those creatures had Dorothy worried on the yellow brick road in "The Wizard of Oz" – and now you may need to worry about seeing them and other large carnivores in your backyard, an Ohio State University researcher says.
OK, there shouldn’t be any tigers – they aren’t found in the wild in North America – but lions (mountain), bears, wolves and coyotes are finding urban areas to be just right for a comfortable existence, says Stan Gehrt, an associate professor of environment and natural resources.
Gehrt says coyotes are leading the urban invasion by formerly rural carnivores.
“The coyote is the test case for other animals. Raccoons, skunks, foxes – they’ve already been able to penetrate the urban landscape pretty well. The coyote is the most recent and largest,” Gehrt said in a university press release.
One pack of coyotes has established a territory and is thriving about five miles from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, the third busiest airport in the country, according to Budget Travel.
“That’s an indication that they don’t have to go far to find food and water. They’re finding everything they need right there, in the suburbs of Chicago,” Gehrt said.
Frustrated Residents: Raccoons Slowly Taking Over New York City
Some Who Live In Brooklyn Are Literally Having Their Lives Altered By Critters
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A turf battle of sorts is taking place in some neighborhoods.
Raccoons are invading.
They’re getting into garbage cans, backyards and even breaking into homes. And what’s more, these resourceful raccoons are outsmarting the most determined of trappers, CBS 2’s Dave Carlin reported.
Clinton Hill, Brooklyn resident Susan DeBrango snapped pictures of the suspects, their faces masked, trying to get inside her home.
“They are adorable but not in your backyard when they impact your life,” DeBrango said. “When he saw at me he stood up on two legs and hissed at me.”
They are getting more brazen on Washington Avenue, rummaging through trash, and running right up to neighbors. One even went face-to-face with Barbara Mattocks on her own front stoop.
“I don’t want that feeling ever again. I was petrified,” Mattocks said.
Wolves and mountain lions invade cities in the United States
Colonies of coyotes have already established themselves in the suburbs of Chicago
Scientists believe other potentially dangerous wild animals, including wolves, lions and bears may soon adapt to urban living
Mountain lions have been sighted on the fringes of American cities, with one shot near the Wrigleyville neighbourhood of Chicago .
Wolves and mountain lions could soon be a more common sight in densely populated cities in the United States, experts fear.
Colonies of coyotes have already established themselves in the suburbs of Chicago.
Scientists believe other potentially dangerous wild animals, including wolves, lions and bears, may soon be following in their footsteps as they adapt to urban living.
Yesterday a mountain lion stretching over 6-feet in size was shot dead by police officers in a residential area of Des Moines, Iowa while roaming just blocks from an elementary school and in a man's backyard.

Tiger kills, eats her cubs
December 29, 2014 - Sumatran tiger eats her cubs, dealing a blow to Biblical Zoo's captive breeding program. A rare Sumatran tiger in the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo has killed and eaten her two five-week-old cubs.
Hana, the mother tiger, had given birth to 3 cubs after being mated with a tiger from Germany.
One cub died shortly after birth but the other two were in good health. Zoo discovered they had been killed when we went to weigh them.
"We have no explanation for the behavior of the mother, who had taken good care of them at the start."
But captive breeding programs have raised their number in zoos around the world to 261 from 180 in 2008. This year, 32 were born in captivity. The Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, which boasts a collection of wildlife mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, is also known for its success in breeding endangered species.
California coyotes attack kids
July 12, 2015 - California residents are being warned to be more vigilant about coyotes after 4 attacks on children in the Irvine area. A 2 years old was in the garage. They opened the garage up and the coyote came in and actually got the child on the neck area and part of the cheek.
Coyote makes itself at home in kitchen, in a fireplace, they dont fear humans.
People arm themselves with sticks. Sticks!?? Throw rocks at the animal. Rocks? Hell! SHOOT them! Officials are concerned that coyotes are losing their natural fear of humans because they’ associate humans with food.
New Jersey and other states also have tame wild coyotes.

Watch the animals
There are not a lot of 'words from the LORD' which I believe are from THE ONE GOD today. This may be a true one. Always discern .. ALWAYS.

Isaiah 58:11 NKJV
The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord.
And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord,
but the Lord was not in the wind.
and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire,
and after the fire a still small voice.
And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave.
And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
1 Kings 19:11-14
I can truly say that God is getting the Bride ready. The signs on earth and in the sky point to the soon coming of the Lord.
I can feel a paradigm shift in my spirit.
In the pre-Noahic dispensation, God reached down and took one righteous man straight to heaven. It was Enoch. He was 365 years old.
When you think about it, in those days men lived almost 1,000 years, so he was only middle-aged.
He left this earth a young man, for the Word says, "And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him" Genesis 5:24
Thereby, he escaped the great judgment that came upon the earth.
It's time we begin to walk with God, like Enoch, for the judgment has now begun.
Even the animals know it.
The other day I was asking God, "What signs will you give us that great calamity will come on America?" and The Holy Spirit inside of me said -
"Watch the animals. They will know and sense that something catastrophic is about to happen."
- just as the animals took to the hills in India and Sri Lanka before the tsunami and even before man knew it was arriving.
Today I read a report of someone telling how her house pets (dog and cat) are beginning to act strange as though they are full of fear of something terrible about to happen.
I believe that is confirmation of what the Holy Spirit showed me. When I was a young girl, I used to hear people say, "If you see the rats leave the ship - don't board it."
God is speaking with a strong wind these days. He's speaking with the earthquakes.
Yesterday's USA Today has a report on page 3A that the government has a plan to place seismographs beneath the earth's surface from
California to Maine, 40 miles apart across the country to measure the tremors of the earth.
It will take at least 2 years to place all of them. The first ones have already been placed in the eastern part of ND, SD, NE, KS, OK, and TX, and in the western part of MN, WI, IA, IL, MO, AR, and LA.
The greatest concentration will be at the New Madrid seismic zone between St. Louis and Memphis.
God is also speaking in the fire. There have been quite a few unexpected volcanic eruptions lately in the Philippines, Guatemala and of course in Iceland,
which impacted travelers around the world because of the way it affected the air and airline industry.
The last great message we will hear from heaven will be the still small voice.
God speaks by the Holy Spirit in the hearts of man and, if we miss that, we will miss God and we could even miss our soul's salvation.
(CJ NOTE - Too much of man's theology from this point.)
After we moved into the dispensation of the law as God gave it to Moses, the next person who was translated into heaven before the judgment of God came upon the 10 northern tribes of Israel was Elijah who was taken up by a whirlwind in a chariot of fire.
I believe the next great translation is imminent. It will not be one man who walked with God like Enoch, or a great prophet like Elijah who prophesied to the backslidden nation of Israel who bowed their knees to Baal, but a mighty company of redeemed, blood-washed, saints from all over the world who are the chosen Bride of Christ. Amen.
In our meeting in the Chinese Church in Flushing, New York, one of the sisters had a vision at the altar of a huge white wedding cake many tiers high. No wedding cake on earth was ever as big as that one. When she testified about her vision, she asked me what I thought it meant. I said "it's a sign that the marriage supper of the lamb, when the Holy Spirit will present the Bride to the heavenly Bridegroom, is about to take place." The cake is the last thing that you make before the wedding. Heaven is getting ready. It's the third day. Something big is going to happen real soon.
If God spared Enoch and God spared Elijah from even seeing the wrath of God poured out, surely He will spare his Bride. "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man"
Get yourself ready. It's very important that you put first things first NOW.

If God ever needed intercessors, and if the world ever needed us, it is NOW! Many have been lulled to sleep by good "show-business." But if we keep our eyes and our ears open (not just to the 'lullaby' media), but to what the Holy Ghost is speaking through dreams, visions and prophesies, which courageous, on-target prophets are still daring to declare, we will soon realize that the so called "doomsday prophets" were right, and the things they spoke out of the mouth of God are already beginning to come to pass.

4 species of Giraffes
Sep 9, 2016 - Giraffes genetics reveal that there 4 species, not one. Giraffes have previously been recognised to be a single species divided into several sub-species. But this latest study of their DNA suggests 4 groups of giraffes, 4 distinct species. Northern giraffes was very different from reticulated giraffes.
southern giraffe (Giraffa giraffa),
Masai giraffe (G. tippelskirchi),
reticulated giraffe (G. reticulata)
northern giraffe (G. camelopardalis)
Sep 23, 2016 - Rare white lions, tigers - 3 rare white tigers have been born at a Polish zoo, just days after another rare litter of 4 white lion cubs. The Zoo Safari in Borysew have not checked the genders of the cubs yet as they do not want to disturb them.
White lions and tigers are both extremely rare, numbering only a few hundred worldwide, and owe their appearance to a recessive gene. They are not albino.
Sep 24, 2016 - In Botswana 5 wild lionesses grow a mane and start acting like males. One is even roaring and mounting other females. Oddly enuf there are no cubs in this pride.
