Polar Bears, Noise, and Stress

Greg Pollowitz at NRO's The Corner is making fun of a recent study that shows polar bears are sensitive to excessive noise in their environment. Ha ha.

Just to show you how sensitive animals can be, a black rhino being transported from the Kansas City zoo to the Oregon zoo in Portland apparently died on Monday simply from the stress of being moved. Imagine.

Moving stresses me out. It really stresses my cat Eli -- he spent a week hiding under the bathroom sink, and hardly ate at all. But to actually die from stress -- it really makes you think. (Unless you're Greg Pollowitz.)
