To do so, they’re attaching GPS devices and a video cameras to the felines and releasing them into the wild. The only problem: cats are hard to catch. Leg traps have yielded less than reliable results, so scientists with the Australian Wildlife Conservancy decided to recruit some canines for assistance. Dogs are natural-born cat-chasers. Their first recruit for the job was a springer spaniel named Sally. She brought energy but her cat-chasing skills weren’t well-polished. “Sally was full of beans and enthusiasm but she wasn’t the smartest in terms of cat hunting and there were many instances where the cats outwitted her,” Hugh McGregor, a University of Tasmania PhD student, told Science Network Western Australia . “It was that classic cartoon image of the dog chasing the cat, the cat stopping still and the dog jumping right over the cat and continuing to run.” Next up was Brangul, a Catahoula — a hound originally bred to hunt wild boar. Brangul wasn’t as gung-ho about the job as Sally, but she wasn’t as easily fooled by the cat’s getaway tricks. Together, the dogs made a rather effective team — more effective than leg traps.

A live show judge presiding over one of the many categories for the minis scale size. Its not uncommon for multiples of the same model to be entered into the same class, with minuscule differences in the paint job or condition breaking the tie. (Maintenance is difficult: Air inside the hollow models can contract or expand due to temperature changes, and paint can fade through wear or exposure to sunlight.) http://lilymoralescanada.denaliinstitute.org/2016/09/06/straightforward-guidelines-for-selecting-significant-details-for-vocation/Nearly every permutation of breed, size, finish, and rarity is judged at Breyerfest, from inch-high models repainted by master artists, to full-sized traditional models preserved for decades. Then there are the unrealistic fantasy-inspired models and the performance categories, featuring models positioned around hand-made miniature dioramas with tiny riders and crops. Breed conformity is among the most important elements for a judge. Unlike other class qualifications, theres no canonical breed interpretation built into a model. A Breyer sold as a German Warmblood or Appaloosa Stallion might be entered into a completely different class by a skilled competitor, with serious research into horse breeding, coloration, and genetics to back up that assessment. Competing requires a sizable collection, but competing well requires a staggering knowledge of both model and real horses. To outsiders, the finer points of competing border on impenetrable. Judges assistant Andy Faraci is checking entries with a newborn strapped to his back at Saturdays youth show. He doesnt collect and only became aware of the hobby after he and his wife moved in togethereven so, hes been volunteering at Breyerfest for five years.
