Photo gallery: Animals in the news from 2012

Lately, we’ve been taking a look back at some of our favorite photos and stories from the last year. Just for fun, here’s one more. Animals have turned up in the news a lot this year. A ribbon seal that was hanging out a long way from home caught a lot of attention. A very special cat was reunited with her owner. A dog was returned home after allegedly being sold on Craigslist. And there were so many more stories.

Take a look back in our photo gallery here.
