Up to 900 of the iconic creatures are destined to die over coming weeks as officials battle to protect cattle from disease carried by the bison. There have already been attempts to disrupt the annual slaughter this year, with opponents cutting a fence where more than 50 bull bison were being corralled. Officials at the famous Yellowstone National Park – currently embroiled in a row over plans to allow grizzly bear hunts – started its capture operation this week.
One of the deadly gun pellets can be seen embedded in the tragic animal’s spine, causing such a catastrophic injury that the cat was left paralysed. Only when vets studied the medical images could they see how the tragic animal had been targeted before – with a pellet still embedded behind its front leg from a previous shooting. The RSPCA released the images of the black and white cat today after it was decided to spare the animal further suffering.
With its horse-like features and striking horns, the mythical saola has only been seen by a handful of people foraging in impenetrable forest. Such is its elusiveness, it has been dubbed Asian Unicorn by zoologists anxious to stop it slipping into oblivion. As few as 100 of these antelopes survive, making it arguably the most endangered large mammal on the planet.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
