For those of you who were riveted or aghast at the Netflix series Tiger King, you have undoubtedly heard the news that a court in Oklahoma awarded his arch-nemesis and the woman he tried to have murdered, Carol Baskin, title to his animal park.  Why?  Because one of the many disputes between the two involved a trademark infringement lawsuit that Carol won and the judge ordered Joe Exotic to pay her $1m, which he never did.  Instead, he transferred the title to the zoo to his mother. Carol continued to try to get Joe Exotic to pay her, and this week the court awarded her the 16 acres of land in Oklahoma that housed the animal park and ordered the company that now owns the land to remove all the animals.  Joe is currently serving 22 years for ordering the “hit” on Carol.  Sweet Revenge.  Meow.

Why This Matters:  Is the glass half empty or half full? It all depends on how you look at it. These scientists argue that “the way global averages were being estimated could be strongly influenced by a small number of populations that were experiencing extreme declines, even if most were stable.”
