In this 2013 photo provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture a Kangal dog greets Ben Hofer of the Hutterite Rockport Colony near Pendroy, Mont. Nearly 120 dogs from three large breeds perfected over centuries in Europe and Asia to be gentle around sheep and children but vicious when confronting wolves recently completed a four-year study to see how they'd react to their old nemesis on a new continent. The U.S. Department of Agriculture supplied Cão de Gado Transmontanos, Karakachans and Kangals that can weigh 150 pounds (68 kilograms) to guard sheep in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Washington and Oregon.

In this photo provided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, a winter-run Chinook salmon is seen on Friday, March 2, 2018. Approximately 29,000 endangered winter-run juvenile Chinook salmon were released into the North Fork of Battle Creek, a tributary of the Sacramento River. A $100 million project removing some dams and helping fish route around others is allowing wildlife officials to restore one of the state's most endangered native salmon to vital spring-fed Battle Creek, which springs from the cold northernmost reaches of the Sierra Nevada. Authorities say Battle Creek could prove a species-saving chill hideout against climate change and drought. (Steve Martarano/U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service via AP)

Bones found in 1940 on a western Pacific Ocean island were quite likely to be remains from famed aviator Amelia Earhart, a new analysis concludes. Until somebody disproves the link, “the most convincing argument is that they are hers,” University of Tennessee anthropologist Richard Jantz said in a statement from the institution.
