Michigan records safest hunting season with no fatal incidents in 2014
AmmoLand
For the first time, Michigan recorded no fatalities during all hunting seasons in 2014, according to reports compiled by the Department of Natural Resources' Law Enforcement Division. Ten incidents involving injuries were recorded in the state — nine in the Lower Peninsula and one in the Upper Peninsula. "We had 10 incidents reported for 2014, which ties with last year for the fewest number of reportable hunting incidents since Michigan started tracking them in the 1940s," said Sgt. Tom Wanless of the DNR's Recreational Safety, Education and Enforcement Section.

WLBT-TV
VideoBriefIt's not a zoo but it's full of animals and it's in Kosciusko, Mississippi. Tommy Armstrong is the proprietor. Dorothy, in the Wizard of Oz's reaction to lions and tigers and bears may have been, "Oh My!" But Tommy's reaction is more like, "Oh Boy!" Tommy Armstrong works and plays, all at the same time in his taxidermy studio "Touch of Class Taxidermy" in Kosciusko. It's a zoo in here, almost. But its close enough that classes of area school children come here on field trips. This is about as near to lions, tigers and bears as you can get in Kosciusko.
