Nature-watching - an outsider's hobby, right? Geese crisscross the sky, eagles nest all over Pennsylvania and New Jersey, hawks and falcons are on their way, and elk whistle ghostly in Benezette. But birders, hunters, conservationists, and animal enthusiasts of all furs are also turning to Twitter, Facebook, blogs, apps, and a proliferation of "hawk cams" and "eagle cams" to get their beast on. Here, as in so many realms of human life, social media help people build communities around shared interests.

WOOLWICH TWP. He's the talk of the town. Most haven't seen him, though his pink skin tone and tail stick out on the highway from time to time. But those who have spotted Dubbs, the little pig that has been on the run for two weeks in Woolwich, Swedesboro, and that was last seen in East Greenwich, have failed to corral him. "People are seeing the pig everywhere, and they can't seem to catch it," said Cassandra Hagstoz, 17, a senior at Kingsway Regional High School in Woolwich.

Daquan Crump, the 19-year-old who was shot 10 times in the head and face and then left in a Northeast Philadelphia construction site nearly two weeks ago, was killed by a childhood friend over $60, the proceeds of a stolen PlayStation 3 video-game system, police said Wednesday. "In their mind, this is worth a human life," Homicide Capt. James Clark said at a news conference announcing the arrest of 18-year-old Malik Anderson. "Because I didn't get a cut of a $60 profit from a used PlayStation game, I'm going to stand over top and shoot a kid that I've been friends with since I was 10, 11 years old," Clark said.

AFTER MALIK Anderson shot his childhood friend execution-style Aug. 19 over a PlayStation 3, police sources say, he knew just where to hide the gun - an Eggo waffles box in the freezer. The 19-year-old's alleged crime caught up with him before breakfast yesterday when homicide detectives and a SWAT team burst into his family's Northeast Philly house, on Tomlinson Road near Clark Street, about 5 a.m., and arrested him in the slaying of Daquan Crump, also 19. Investigators said the pair had been friends since middle school.

Her name may be Casanova, but the chick is very much a lady. "Pretty baby pink!" exclaimed biologist Kate Budion, as the Adventure Aquarium made the gender of its youngest penguin public with a splash Wednesday. Only the 14th chick the aquarium's penguin colony has produced since it was established in 1998, Casanova was born in January. "She was named 'Casanova' because we introduced her to the public on Valentine's Day, and we were looking for a name that could be abbreviated in either a male or a female way," said Sara Honovich, the aquarium's director of marketing and sales.

SALT LAKE CITY - A Mormon church-owned NBC television station in Utah plans to begin showing first-run "Saturday Night Live" episodes this fall after years of refusing to air the sketch comedy show. The decision is part of the station's plan to make the lineup stronger and improve its relationship with NBC, said Tami Ostmark, KSL-TV's vice president of marketing, research and promotion. KSL is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and has not aired shows over the years due to content it deems inappropriate.
