  • Twelve dogs, rescued from South Korea, arrived at the Boise Airport.
  • A dozen dogs rescued by Humane Society International and transported from a breeding operation in Seongnam, South Korea, by Dog is My CoPilot (an animal air-rescue NPO), arrived in Boise Airport yesterday. "These dogs are in desperate need of a second chance," wrote HSI Co-Director of Companion Animals and Engagement Kelly O'Meara in a prepared statement. "We know people of Boise will give them the love and care [the dogs] were deprived of since they were born. We found them in chains, living in filth and isolated." The Idaho Humane Society has seen a decline in the number of animals coming through its doors, so it is able to take over the care of the new arrivals and will handle the animal adoptions.

  • Variety reports new summer blockbuster Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, could make $100 million in its opening weekend, setting a box-office record for a female-directed film. In Boise, Captain Comics (710 S. Vista Ave.) is celebrating the warrior princess: The store has declared today Wonder Woman Day, and everyone who visits the store gets one of two different Wonder Woman comics—plus, all Wonder Woman-related comics, books and toys are 20 percent off.
