    PULLMAN, Wash. - You've heard about the Washington State Cougars, but what about their grizzly bears? WSU's Bear Research, Education, and Conservation Center is the only grizzly bear research center of its kind in the United States. Because few zoos have the resources or sufficient number of bears to obtain meaningful data on the species, the center was established. Right now students are banding together to make life better for the bears and they're asking for your help.

    WASHINGTON - You know they old saying, "If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life."  Some aren't fortunate enough (or brave enough) to live by that motto, but a pup in training to sniff out explosives in the CIA obviously wasn't digging what she was doing, so she's moving on. Hopefully to something she enjoys more.
