Bovine Sports Medicine — Keeping the Buck in the Bull

Fri, Dec 13, 2019

Animal athletes come in all shapes and sizes. Generations of selective breeding have produced genetic lines of animals that are deemed more suited to a specific athletic discipline. For example, some dogs are bred to hunt, while others are bred for agility; some horses are bred for racing, while others are bred to work with cows. The evolution of today’s bucking bull athlete is no different.

Wild Turtles are Not Pet Material

Mon, Aug 12, 2019

From mid-July through September, thousands of people visit Oklahoma’s lakes, rivers and other waterways to cool off and enjoy their summer. And many of them encounter Oklahoma’s wildlife, as animals also utilize the water and adjacent wilderness. At this time of year, baby turtles are hatching out of eggs buried months earlier. Most egg nests were found and destroyed by raccoons, skunks and other predators. The lucky, undisturbed nests can see 30 to 40 turtles dig themselves out of the soil. They must remain hidden, however, and try to make it to the water and its aquatic vegetation quickly.

Arthritic joints not just a problem in people

Fri, Apr 19, 2019

Medical researchers debate the precise mechanism, but the association between cold weather and intensified joint pain is well known to people with degenerative joint disease, or osteoarthritis (OA). And those suffering are many. According to a long-running study conducted by researchers at the University of North Carolina, nearly 50 percent of people aged 45 years or older experience OA-related knee pain, and for people living to the age of 85, one out of four will develop symptomatic OA in one or both hip joints.
