Italy cracks Mafia sheep code to arrest Godfather’s henchmen

Italian police say the 'Cosa Nostra' communicated using sheep-based phrases written on tiny bits of paper that were hidden under rocksItalian police on Monday arrested 11 suspects linked to the fugitive head of the Sicilian Mafia, including a former boss who ran a secret message system for the mobster using a sheep-based code. Matteo Messina Denaro, 53, who has been on the run since 1993, used a farm in Mazara del Vallo to communicate with his henchmen via the aged-old method of "pizzini", bits of paper containing messages often written in cipher, police said. Among those arrested was former boss Vito Gondola, 77, whose job it was to call the clan members to alert them to each new message, which was placed under a rock in a field at the farm and often destroyed on the spot after reading.

Hunters in Africa say they have a role in conservation

This handout photo provided by Stuart Pimm shows a lion in Kenya. The circle of life is closing in on the king of the jungle. When a Minnesota dentist killed famed Cecil the lion, the Internet exploded with outrage. But scientists who have studied lions have seen it before. They’ve watched the African lion population shrink by more than half since 1980 and dwindle even faster in East Africa where lions used to be most abundant. They’ve seen trophy hunting, like the dentist’s, promise to spur lion conservation with influxes of lots of cash, then not work as planned. And even more importantly, they’ve seen lion habitat shrink and lions be killed by local residents because of conflict with livestock and agriculture.(Stuart Pimm via AP)JOHANNESBURG (AP) — In 1910, Theodore Roosevelt headed a Smithsonian hunting and trapping expedition in Africa that included colleagues who prepared the wildlife he killed for shipment back to America. The former U.S. president and his son, Kermit, shot hundreds of animals.
