Big Picture: animals!

To know the Boston Globe’s Big Picture is to love it. And this week they’ve organized some excellent pictures of animals in the news. Falling bears, gargantuan salmon, and more. Get thee to a photoessay!

    Photos 50 & 51 about the pilot whale slaughter in the Faroe Islands are all black for me. Can anyone else see them? Is this a browser glitch or are these photos being suppressed?

    Ive got about 6 or 7 that are black. IE7, though!! But….the Big Picture comes through once again!

    In Firefox, the black images have this in their center:

    “Warning:
