A beaver gets some time out of his pen at the Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation (AIWC) near Madden, Alta. on Feb. 8, 2012. The beaver was only four days old when he was brought into AIWC after a rancher near Big Valley checked on a dam on his property following some flooding. The rancher found the beaver huddled by its deceased mother and rescued the animal. (JAMES EMERY/QMI AGENCY)
Emmett Till....They dragged him from his great-uncle’s house and secreted him away to a barn, where they beat him and gouged out one of his eyes. Then they shot him through the head and disposed of his body in the Tallahatchie River...His grossly disfigured body was discovered in the river three days later....Till’s mother insisted on having a public funeral with an open casket so the world could see how her son had been brutalized.
