Sorry for the delay but the HARO Discovery regarding animals is canon and was posted on twitter a while ago. Finally got it up on the Lore Docs section!
Kind reminder that the Timeline and Lore Docs are updated and often times without notifications like this. So, make sure to check in on those various links from time to time as new info does come to light. Still waiting on my PC to ship so I'm not able to get IG still, but the rest of the team is actively doing smaller events atm. So make sure to pop IG and see what they're up to. They tend to like to watch people, then spring a interaction on said people! So be aware a LM team could be watching you at any moment!
