By Barbara Liston ORLANDO, Fla. (Reuters) - A love triangle between bald eagles that played out before thousands of fans on a live webcam has ended badly in Florida with the death of Ozzie, longtime mate of Harriet, according to a Florida wildlife clinic. Ozzie was critically wounded on Sept. 20 in an aerial battle with his rival, known as Frequent Visitor, who had been stalking Harriet's nest as Thursday's start of mating season approached, the clinic said. He died Tuesday evening of cardiac arrest. Bald eagles mate for life and eagle watchers had seen Ozzie and Harriet together for more than 20 years. They raised children for the past three seasons before more than 16 million viewers on the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam on a Fort Myers ranch where the two settled in 2006. "A very sad day but amazing to hear how Ozzie has touched so many," said a post on the SWFL Eagle Cam Twitter account late Wednesday. Ozzie collapsed Sunday of septic shock from his wounds, said Heather Barron, the avian medical specialist and surgeon who treated Ozzie at the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) on Sanibel Island near Fort Myers on Florida's southwest coast. He underwent two surgeries, treatment with intravenous fluids and powerful antibiotics, and open-chested cardiopulmonary resuscitation before dying in front of his medical team. "There was just no bringing him back. We all tried so hard," Barron said. More than 3,822 notes of condolence had been posted as of Thursday afternoon on the eagle cam Facebook page. Barron estimated Ozzie was in his 30s and in the upper end of his expected life span. The beginning of the end for Ozzie came in March after he suffered broke bones, possibly after being hit by a train or car, and spent three months in the spring recuperating at CROW’s hospital. While he was gone, the cam was getting 200,000 hits a day from fans who also followed his progress on Facebook, according to the Fort Myers News-Press. He returned to the nest in June to find that Harriet had been stepping out with a new potential mate, Frequent Visitor, who remained in the area. Barron said the fight for mating rights, particularly with a younger male, was common in nature. "He went out in a blaze of glory," Barron said of Ozzie. "He fought the good fight."

The German Green Party has been hit by a new scandal involving one of its best known and most controversial politicians. Boris Palmer, the maverick mayor of Tübingen, who only months ago was widely hailed for his successful coronavirus policy, faces expulsion from the party over an alleged racist tweet. The scandal comes at a pivotal moment for the Greens, who are currently leading in the polls ahead of September’s elections. Annalena Baerbock, the party leader, has promised decisive action against Mr Palmer after he used the n-word in a tweet defending a former German footballer against accusations of racism. “Aogo is a poor racist,” Mr Palmer wrote of Dennis Aogo, the former international. “He offered his n----r d--k to women.” Mr Palmer was defending Mr Aogo, who is of mixed German and Nigerian heritagem,after he was fired from his role as a television pundit over remarks in which he spoke of “training to the point of gassing”. He also spoke out in support of Jens Lehmann, another former footballer who described Mr Aogo as the television network’s “token black”. Mr Palmer has denied the charge of racism and says it should be clear his tweet was “obvious irony taken to the extreme”. He is refusing to resign quietly from the Green Party and insisting on a full hearing.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -A U.S. Coast Guard ship fired about 30 warning shots after 13 vessels from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy (IRGCN) came close to it and other American Navy vessels in the Strait of Hormuz, the Pentagon said on Monday. This is the second time within the last month that U.S. military vessels have had to fire warning shots because of what they said was unsafe behavior by Iranian vessels in the region, after a relative lull in such interactions over the past year. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said the warning shots were fired after the Iranian fast boats came as close as 150 yards (450 feet) of six U.S. military vessels, including the USS Monterey, that were escorting the guided-missile submarine Georgia.

The Indian government has told doctors to look out for signs of mucormycosis or "black fungus" in COVID-19 patients as hospitals report a rise in cases of the rare but potentially fatal infection. The state-run Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) said at the weekend that doctors treating COVID-19 patients, diabetics and those with compromised immune systems should watch for early symptoms including sinus pain or nasal blockage on one side of the face, one-sided headache, swelling or numbness, toothache and loosening of teeth. The disease, which can lead to blackening or discolouration over the nose, blurred or double vision, chest pain, breathing difficulties and coughing blood, is strongly linked to diabetes.
