Animal news from here and there

From Harper’s Weekly Review:

An English veterinarian performed the first ever corneal surgery on a Sumatran tiger. “It’s like we might do with any domestic cat,” said the doctor. “But with a lot more anesthetic.” The actor Vincent D’Onofrio confirmed that he was once mugged by a monkey, [and] the government of the United Kingdom announced legislation formally designating certain animals as sentient…

Excellent good spirit demonstrated by the English vet!

I miss seeing Vincent D’Onofrio on TV. I miss him a lot.

Back to the UK, I’m hoping, hoping, hoping one of those sentient animal designations was formally granted to human beings. If not this time, I will work my butt off to insure some of us are designated next time around.
