Major U.S. airlines end trophy hunter shipments after Cecil outcry

Protesters rally outside the River Bluff Dental clinic against the killing a famous lion in Zimbabwe, in Bloomington, MinnesotaThree U.S. airlines have banned the transport of lion, leopard, elephant, rhino or buffalo killed by trophy hunters, in the latest fallout from the killing of Zimbabwe's Cecil the lion last month. American Airlines said on Tuesday it would join Delta Airlines and United Airlines in banning the transport of animals known in Africa as the "big five", coined by hunters because they are the hardest to kill on foot. There has been an international outcry against trophy hunting among animal lovers since it emerged that American dentist Walter Palmer killed Cecil, a rare black-maned lion that was a familiar sight at Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park.

Jury keeps death penalty as option for Colorado movie gunman Holmes

Accused Aurora theater gunman James Holmes listens during his arraignment in CentennialJames Holmes, the Colorado movie massacre gunman, could face the death penalty after jurors found on Monday that aggravating factors including the cruel nature of his crimes counted for more than mitigating ones such as mental illness. The panel of nine women and three men will now hear from victims of the July 2012 rampage at a midnight screening of the Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises." They will then deliberate on whether the 27-year-old shooter should be executed by lethal injection. Holmes, who killed 12 people and wounded 70, showed no reaction as the verdicts were delivered, staring straight ahead, hands in pockets.

Idaho woman comes under fire for celebrating her killing of giraffe
A big-game trophy collector from Idaho has ignited a firestorm of criticism from animal-rights activists for flaunting online images of herself posed with the carcasses of a giraffe and other wildlife she killed during a recent guided hunt in South Africa. Sabrina Corgatelli, an accountant for Idaho State University, appeared on NBC's "Today” show on Monday to defend trophy hunting amid mounting international outrage over last month's killing of Cecil, Zimbabwe's most famous lion, by an American dentist. Giraffes are very dangerous animals. Posted Monday, August 3, 2015 6:28 pm EDT

Price shines on Blue Jays debut in victory over Twins

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Toronto Blue Jays(The Sports Xchange) - David Price provided everything the Blue Jays could have wanted on his Toronto debut on Monday as he allowed three hits, two walks, one run and struck out 11 in his first start since joining from the Detroit Tigers last week. With third baseman Josh Donaldson hitting a two-run homer and second baseman Ryan Goins belting a solo shot, the Blue Jays carried the feel-good factor around the clubhouse to a 5-1 defeat of the Minnesota Twins. Price (10-4) was also impressed by the warm welcome he received from a sellout crowd, as he was cheered during his warm-ups and left to a standing ovation after the eighth inning with the pitcher tipping his cap in return.

Rangers ride Beltre's cycle to wild win over Astros

MLB: Houston Astros at Texas Rangers(The Sports Xchange) - Adrian Beltre hit for his third career cycle to inspire the Texas Rangers to a wild 12-9 victory over the Houston Astros at Globe Life Park on Monday. Beltre, who completed the cycle with a fifth-inning home run off Mike Fiers, is just the fourth player to have three career cycles and the first to accomplish that feat since Babe Herman managed it in 1933. The third baseman's offensive heroics were just part of a contest in which the Rangers batted around twice, chased Houston starter Lance McCullers after one-third of an inning and had 15 hits.

Accused Taliban leader said he was doing 'God's work': testimony
By Gary Robertson RICHMOND, Va. (Reuters) - A former American soldier testifying in the trial of Irek Hamidullin on Monday said the accused Russian Taliban leader was compliant when captured, and said he was doing "God's work." Hamidullin, a former Soviet tank commander who converted to Islam and was allegedly fighting for the Taliban, is the first Afghan War military combatant to be tried in U.S. federal court. Believed to be in his 50s, Hamidullin was charged last year with 15 criminal counts ranging from supporting terrorists to firearms offenses stemming from an assault on an Afgan Border Police base in November of 2009 "He raised his hands and said [in English], 'Don't kill me, I'm a Russian citizen'" said Todd Marcum, who shot and wounded Hamidullin as he and other soldiers pursued insurgents who had attacked Camp Leyza in Khost Province.
