Study: Men Returning from the Hunt Experience Rush of the “Love Hormone”

According to a study by researchers at UC Santa Barbara, male hunters returning from the field may experience a sudden rise in oxytocin, the so-called "love hormone." This nickname is somewhat misleading since oxytocin not only promotes sexual arousal, but also a wide range of other benefits such as increasing sociability, reducing stress, reducing pain, healing wounds, and there is even some evidence of the hormone acting as anti-depressant.

Thousands of migrating snow geese have died in Idaho, and experts say that a common disease may be the prime suspect.

Should you duck and cover? Idaho wildlife officials have confirmed that thousands of migrating snow geese are being found dead across the state, seemingly dropping straight out of the air.
