Exciting animal news from Harper’s Weekly Review!

The head of a 40,000-year-old wolf was found preserved in permafrost in Siberia with its fur, teeth, and brain intact.*

A semitruck reportedly carrying 133 million bees overturned in Montana; two semis collided in Indiana, spilling lithium batteries and cocoa across a freeway; and a semi carrying thousands of chickens crashed in Ohio. An alligator bit off the bumper of a police car north of Shreveport, Louisiana; a man traveling from Florida to Hawaii accidentally brought a snake on a plane; and an alligator was spotted in Texas with a knife wedged in its brow. “I don’t want to see an alligator swimming around with a knife in his head,” said a resident.

Since the permafrost is becoming tempfrost thanks to climate change, I’ll bet we’ll soon be hearing about lots and lots of very old creatures making their appearances.
