The arrival of thousands of pelicans could annoy just about anyone, but few resort to a mass killing to deal with the "problem." That's what one Minnesota farmer did this week, and he now faces fines of $15,000 and six months in jail.

We also have a collection bull sharks invading a golf course, the best photos from the new collector's edition of "Planet Earth," the Department of Defense saving butterflies, chimps suffering from their fame, and more in the Week in Animal News.
