Reuters reports that at least ten species of animals including a buffalo, two wild boar-like collared peccaries, and two South American tapirs have gone missing from the zoo in the last two months. Zoo head Leonardo Nunez believes the buffalo was dismembered and cut into pieces before it was taken off-site, and according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, the tapirs are vulnerable to extinction.

A D.C. Superior Court judge ruled yesterday that DreamHost, a Los Angeles-based tech company which hosts the website Disruptj20.org, must provide email addresses and other computer information from people who visited the anti-Trump website ahead of his inauguration.

During an hour-long hearing, attorneys for Dreamhost argued the federal search warrant was too broad and would include information about people who visited the site but were not part of violent Inauguration Day rioting which injured six police officers and caused tens of thousands of dollars in damage. Prosecutors in DC have indicted nearly 200 people on local rioting charges since Inauguration Day; 19 have pled guilty to date.

Americans shocked by the election of Donald Trump made their opposition known through large-scale protests, walkouts, and marches across major US cities yesterday. Minorities, LGBTs, the disabled, and women fearful of what a Trump presidency will mean for their lives and communities helped lead the actions in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and New York, among other cities in predominantly blue states that voted heavily against Trump.
