An endangered Brazilian ocelot kitten is the latest birth at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden.
A release from the zoo says the kitten was born New Year's Eve after an artificial insemination from the zoo's resident male ocelot, "Monsieur." This birth represents the fifth pregnancy worldwide in ocelots resulting from artificial insemination.
Both the mother, Sala and the kitten are currently being housed in a quiet off-exhibit location but likely will be transferred to the ocelot exhibit in the Zoo’s Night Hunters building later this spring for public viewing.
A new Cincinnati Children's Hospital survey finds one-third of teen girls actually have an in-person meeting with somebody they met online.
Psychologist Jennie Noll says abused or neglected teenage girls are more likely to present themselves in a more sexually provocative way online and therefore have more offline meetings. Noll studied the Internet and social media habits of 250 girls. About half were abused. She followed up a year later. Noll says the meeting part is scary for this age even though plenty of adults do it.
Rematches have a certain appeal – whether in sports, politics or any competitive endeavor.
There are a lot of Cincinnati Reds fans, for example, who would give their eye teeth for another crack at the San Francisco Giants in the play-offs in October.
And there were a lot of Democrats in Ohio who had been hoping for a rematch of their own in the fall of 2014 – another head-to-head battle between Republican John Kasich and Democrat Ted Strickland for the governor’s office in Ohio.
A young, female manatee named "Woodstock" is the newest addition to the Cincinnati Zoo. The 900-pound, two-year-old arrived Friday from the Columbus Zoo.
Though born in the wild, Woodstock was rescued along with her mother off the Southwest coast of Florida in 2011. Both were victims of cold-stress (prolonged exposure to low temperatures), and while Woodstock survived, her mother did not.
