Stories to Watch: 10/1/10

Meet the 36 million-year-old giant Peruvian penguin. Note to Creationists: no one would ever make something like that up. Now here's the news...

They're all against a referendum that would shut down abusive puppy mills in Missouri, which has the second worst conditions in the nation.

What "radical animal rights organization" is Winklebacher talking about? The Humane Society of the United States.
