    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidLas Islas Canarias is Spanish for Islands of Dogs, not canaries.

    Etymology

    The name Islas Canarias is likely derived from the Latin term Insula Canaria, meaning "Island of the Dogs", a name applied originally only to Gran Canaria. It is speculated that the so-called dogs were actually a species of Monk Seals ("sea dog" in Latin), critically endangered and no longer present in the Canary Islands.[17] The dense population of seals may have been the characteristic that most struck the few ancient Romans who established contact with these islands by sea. The connection to dogs is retained in their depiction on the islands' coat-of-arms (shown above).

    Notice how in this news, as opposed to US news... there is just fact, a representation of what happened. No random interviews, or phrases thrown in for emotional appeal. Everything is related to the event, and not what effect it may have had on the emotions of people around.

    But that's pretttty crazy!
