Political Zoology

To add to the animal threads today on rats and gators, Turkey seems to have invented a new field of study: political zoology. The “democratic” government there is changing the Latin names of certain animals to remove references to Kurdistan and Armenia. Apparently, calling the red fox Vulpes Vulpes Kurdistanica or a wild sheep Ovis Armeniana are “against Turkey’s unity.”
