In American politics, if your running for office, particularly the Presidency, it appears anything you may or may not have done in the past is fare game. No matter how trivial or serious.

Mitt Romney is a former US State Governor and is now currently seeking the nomination for President from the Republican Party (the one George W. Bush belongs to).

About 25 years ago, on one of his many family road trip holidays, Romney decided it was a good idea to strap the family pet,  Seamus, to the car roof for a 12 hour journey from Massachusetts to Canada.

And now, a quater of a century later, animal rights activists are outraged.

Time Magazine reports:

Seamus protested in a scatological way, going to the bathroom on the roof of the car.

Animal rights activists said the tale seems a little cruel.

“It is commonsense that any dog who’s under extreme stress might show that stress by losing control of his bowels: that alone should have been sufficient indication that the dog was, basically, being tortured,” Time quoted Ingrid Newkirk, president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals as saying.

Newkirk said it was “a lesson in cruelty that was … wrong for [his children] to witness.”

So, next time you strap your pet dog to the roof of your car for the 12 hour trip, make sure youre not running for President 25 years later, otherwise you might get yourself into trouble.

Lesson learned.

Speaking of PETA.

Penguins hitch rides north of the border.

How did the penguin cross the border? The question has vexed biologists ever since a Humboldt penguin, native to South America, was found off the coast of Alaska in 2002.

Now they have a likely answer: The flightless bird hitched a ride on a fishing boat.

“Penguins are kind of cute. People like them, and they’re pretty easy to pick up,” said Dee Boersma, a conservation biologist at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Boersma and graduate student Amy Van Buren looked at a series of possibilities for the out-of-place seabird and concluded the boat ride is the best explanation.

They speculate that other penguins spotted in North American waters, although very rare, may also have traveled by fishing boat.

A study on the Humboldt penguin’s trek is published this month in the Wilson Journal of Ornithology

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds in the UK has banned the word cock from its website. Visitors to the site found that cock had been replaced with asterisks, however the species, tit, remains.

“As bird lovers will know, a Parus Major is a great tit and while cocks do not get past the forum censor, tits do not cause offence. I’ve heard of PC but that is taking things too far,” said one web site user.

 A worker claimed the word had been replaced because of software filters but an RSPB spokesman said it preferred to describe birds as either male or female.
