Animal stories were chosen to close the newscasts at CBS and ABC. ABC's John Donvan traveled to the National Zoo, where veterinarians are so worried about a recent rash of premature heart disease deaths of male gorillas that they are trying to perform blood tests to look for warning signs. The trouble is that no vet knows how to make the big ape sit still for a syringe prick. CBS' Kelly Cobiella visited Cape Coral Fla where neighbors have believed for years that the "vroom, vroom, vroom" sound vibrating through their homes was caused by a ghost. Now marine biologists have solved the riddle. When black drumfish breed they spawn en masse and the school is summoned to have sex by a noisy underwater mating call which booms "through the sea wall of their backyard lake, reverberating into their walls."
