Endangered Ocelot Killed on State Highway 186

An endangered ocelot was killed by a vehicle on State Highway 186 between Raymondville and Port Mansfield, Texas, on June 8, 2015. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service identified it as a female ocelot and the veterinarian who performed the necropsy confirmed the death was caused by a vehicular collision. It was determined the ocelot was a mature female that had bred in the past, but did not appear to be raising a litter at the time of death. The ocelot was a member of the Willacy County population and had been studied since she was detected in 2011 through remote camera trapping by the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute on the East Foundation’s El Sauz Ranch.

The Binding of Satan

What was expected and much anticipated throughout the history of man has now taken place, that is, in the heavenly scene that John was beholding. And that was the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. But immediately after it John beholds another scene. And perhaps to much of his astonishment, he sees that an angel came down from heaven with a key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold of the dragon, also known as the old serpent, which is also known as the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.
