Man Feeds Fish Milk

Koi Carp which has the right coloration can sell for tens of thousands of pounds and aquarium owner Ding Feng said making sure the fish grew rapidly so that they could be sold for more money was very important.
Feng, 47, who owns the Hanzhou Aquarium in Hangzhou, in eastern China's Zhejiang province, said: "All my colleagues are doing it. I started to test feed the carps with milk three months ago."
I visited a carp farm, and found they fed the fish with powdered milk from a bottle, and the carp were strong and active. It took my fish a little while to get used to it but now they love the new feed.
"I don't use regular food anymore - I just give them milk."

Cute Labrador Puppy Attacks A Dandelion


Kids mistake leopard cub for kitten!

Children of Bhatvadar village spotted a kitten gamboling about in the bushes while they were out grazing cattle at the national highway near Rajula on Thursday.
Overjoyed, they took it home and played with it throughout the day. "It was only when we heard the cub growling; that we realized it was not a kitten but a leopard. Fearing that its mother might be nearby, we released it in the wild near where the children had found it," said village panchayat member Bharat Sakat.
"We've contacted the forest department, urging it to cage the big cat if it's prowling in our area," he added.
Meanwhile, the forest department admitted to having received a representation from Bhatvadar villagers. "We've sent a team of officials to the site from where the cub was found. Also, we will be surveying the village for pug marks," said a forester.
