In Southern Oregon, some deer got the munchies and noshed on cannabis plants at an industrial hemp farm. The critters actually stamped down a barbed wire fence to get to the stuff. This form of hemp is low in THC, but the seeds are high in protein and healthy fats--so it's super nutritious and yummy.
The story was first reported in a local newspaper where everything is hidden behind a paywall, so here's the Associated Press recap:
The deer got by barbed-wire fencing a couple weeks ago and went through the hemp plants like high-powered mowers, the Grants Pass Daily Courier reported.
"Generally, I don't think they like cannabis. They liked ours, though," said Cliff Thomason, a real estate agent who is the steward of the first industrial hemp crop in Oregon, which was planted near Murphy by Thomason and his partners with Orhempco.
The company planted roughly 1,000 plants in the section the deer got into, and Thomason said there are only about 40 left.

These two little bear cubs are play-fighting, but they look beary serious.
The poop of King Penguins releases high levels of nitrous oxide, aka laughing gas. An international team of researchers from China, Denmark, and the UK were studying how the retreat of glaciers and penguins activity impact soil greenhouse gases on South Georgia, an island north of Antarctica. They observed that the penguin guano is rich […]

We live in a disposable era. If you can’t fix a broken item with a wrap of duct tape, there’s a very strong likelihood that its next destination is the trashcan. However, that probably leads to a trigger-finger death sentence for many household items that could be saved with just a bit more ingenuity. Before […]
Right tool for the right job. You probably heard a parent or grandparent say it at least once at some point. And it’s true in so many cases. If you spot a small tear in your living room curtains or near to hem a pair of pants, you can always use the good old fashioned […]
