A group of daring Western Australian fisherman have been sent sprawling in their boat when they drifted too close for comfort to a huge crocodile basking on a secluded riverbank. The massive beast was minding its own business when the Northbound Charters fishing boat approached the bank of the Ord River near Kununurra, edging closer and closer to the animal. The huge fiver-metre reptile suddenly snapped its head back and set off in quick pursuit of the three fisherman, who revved their small vessel into action and fled in panic.
"I am so happy after this confrontation with a black bear during our spring hunt. No wounds except a bruised elbow and ego where the bear threw me down. Genuinely happy that this was a non fatal or tragic outcome. Proving that the black bear is a wild and unpredictable animal. Again so happy with the outcome."
How can this cute doggo get in lol.
NPPD Officer Justin Lindsey captured an unusual moment on dashcam last weekend. A Black Bear was rummaging through trash and walking around residential neighborhoods. Authorities believe he may have been drawn out of the forest by a recent tree fire in the area. Police are warning residents to take precautions.
A scuba diving instructor has captured incredible footage of a monster 14-foot stingray swimming underneath unsuspecting surfers at Bondi Beach. Joe Phillips was watching the sunset at the iconic Sydney beach when his drone captured the amazing footage of the enormous stingray at 5pm on Sunday. The 25-year-old couldn’t believe his eyes when he spotted the gargantuan ray, which he thought was a rock, swimming underneath surfers just 25 metres from the shore. The monster ray is believed to have been a stingray – the same animal which killed Australian celebrity crocodile hunter Steve Irwin at the age of 44 in Queensland in 2006. Stingrays are often found in shallow coastal waters in mild seas. The stingray has a sharp barb that can produce fatal venom.
Shocking footage of a rodeo rider being trampled by a massive bull during a tournament has been revealed. Rohan Markham, 24, was competing in the Professional Bull Riders event in Rockhampton, Queensland, on Saturday when he was thrown off a bull named Moonshine. Footage shows the rookie rider managing to stay on for about 10 seconds before he is tossed right under the animal's legs. Moonshine crushed Markham's stomach and the rodeo rider was left with a torn liver and a damaged pancreas from the impact. After he was trampled, Markham managed to get up and walk a few metres before collapsing to the ground, the Sunshine Coast Daily reported. He was rushed to hospital and remains in a serious but stable condition.

Stunning photos of a pair of humpback whales have emerged from a recent Sydney Harbour tour depicting the magnificent mammals in their full glory. Delighted tourists were treated to a remarkable display from the whales - which has been hailed the best in 10 years - as their boat toured around the harbour entrance in search of the gentle giants. The huge animals didn't disappoint as they leaped into the air between North Head and South Head as eager onlookers were at the ready with their cameras on Sunday. Around 50 sightseers were lucky enough to witness the rare phenomenon of a double breach - where two whales simultaneously leap out of the water. Some were lucky enough to capture the perfect shot, with the picturesque backdrop of Sydney's city and harbour in the background. Tour organisers Whale Watching Sydney expressed their delight on Facebook after suggesting the sightings so early in the season were a moment to savor. 'I'm a little speechless here, second day of the season and we are already seeing double breaches. Quite the afternoon we had,' the tour company commented online. Jonas Liebschner of Whale Watching Sydney, who took the remarkable photos, told Daily Mail Australia the sightings were extremely rare. 'In 10 years of doing this work in Sydney Harbour that's the best double breaching photo I've seen.' 'In a season, you will normally see it happen probably twice, so for it to happen so early in the season, it's special,' he added.
A baby goat born with a single huge eye, one ear and no nose has left villagers baffled in India. The terrifying goat was born on May 10th in a village in northeastern Indian state of Assam. It has a rare condition called Cyclopia and vets believed that it will die within few days.
This dude is pissing off a pretty big chunk of the internet. He was so worried about getting those likes, favs, retweets, and views that he casually watched his dog die. Internet fame lasts for days, weeks if you are lucky, and months if you go on Dr.Phil and come up with a stupid phrase. Filming your dog getting hit by a car and laughing at it, then posting it to be funny isn’t going to get you a day on the good side. If anything you just pissed the internet off. You do not want to do that…
These buffaloes decide that enough is enough and stick by the motto "all for one and one for all"... 39 year old, Riesdah Gabier, a sales consultant, captured this remarkable footage on 09 April in the Timbavati Reserve. Riesdah elaborates: “We had been following these two young lions for a few days. Guests who were staying at the Umlani Treehouse woke up to find the two lions outside the treehouse. This is how our ranger knew to start following them. We then spotted a herd of buffalo. Amongst them were two injured buffaloes slowing down the main herd. The lions were aware of this and started tracking these weaker ones. We sat and waited patiently until the herd had passed by, followed by the lions. The lions were very diligent and waited until one of the injured buffaloes fell far enough behind to attack it (the herd was still around in the bush). They managed to tackle him down, but the nearby herd was not having any of it! They did a 180-degree turn and came running around the corner to assist the hunted buffalo. The poor buffalo was rolled around like a toy car but the tactics of the herd paid off. They were able to chase the lions off their friend and get them to flee, literally “saving his bacon”. I had wanted to see something interesting, but this was beyond my imagination. We were in total shock. I felt empathetic towards the buffalo, hoping that it would get away unscathed. This was the first time I have ever seen lions or any of the big 5 in real life, my first ever safari. I was told that I am very lucky to have witnessed something like this, as many go to the bush for years without seeing anything remotely close to this experience.
Hanover Adventure Zoo - PETA Germany has filed a complaint with local law enforcement and is calling for an end to the facility’s elephant exhibit and breeding program. Video exposes brutal training of elephants made to perform tricks for visitors. Elephants can be seen reacting extremely fast to commands of the handler. No doubt this fast response is the result of many many brutal training methods that must have taken place since birth.

Shocking footage of a dog tumble out of a moving car and get dragged by the neck on its lead has been captured on video. The unsuspecting canine can be seen leaning out of the window, clearly enjoying the wind in his ears and sniffing the air. The dog leans a little further out but he has not anticipated the upcoming bend in the road. As the car rounds the corner the poor pooch looses his balance - and tips right out of the car. But the dogs leash wrapped around its neck is clearly secured within the moving vehicle. For a few horrifying moments the dog is dragged along the motorway and comes perilously close to the car's crushing wheels. The driver then realises what has happened and quickly pulls over to save the dragging dog. The dashcam footage was captured on a motorway in London in 2015. It is not clear how badly the dog was injured in the accident but it seems to be moving when the car stops which may herald some hope for its survival. Prior to the accident, the dog was very intent on getting its head out of the car window and sniffing the air. In the video, the dog looks like it may be a blood hound - a breed with an exceptional sense of smell which enjoy exploring their environment through smell. Perhaps its leash had been so securely tethered in an effort to actually prevent him from falling out of the window in the first place. According to the Highway Code, dogs and other animals should be suitably restrained so they cannot distract the driver or injure people in the vehicle, or themselves if the vehicle stops quickly. A seat belt harness, pet carrier, dog cage or dog guard are some tools that can be used to restrain animals in cars.
Just when you think it's over, there's a dog.
A man who punched a puppy twice has been arrested after he was caught on surveillance footage.
Kirby Crane, 26, was at a gas station with his puppy in DeKalb County, Georgia on Sunday evening. Crane did not have a leash on the dog. A man and a woman saw the puppy running around outside the store and started petting her.
Then they heard Crane yelling for the dog to come.
The woman picked up the five-month-old American Pit Bull Terrier and when Crane came up to them, he punched the puppy twice then dragged her away by the collar.
He admitted to being at the gas station, but said he didn't remember hitting the puppy. He said if he did hit her, it was to discipline her, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Police arrested Crane Tuesday. He was charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty.
His puppy was brought Lifeline at DeKalb County Animal Service. She was renamed Begonia and they deemed her healthy.
Crane was released from jail Wednesday on bond of $3,000 and was ordered to stay away from animals.
A fossil so well preserved that it looks like a statue is being unveiled today at a museum in Canada. The 110 million-year-old nodosaur fossil, dubbed the 'four legged tank' was discovered by a miner in a find so rare, it's being described as like winning the lottery'. The armoured plant-eater is the best preserved fossil of its kind ever found, according to reports in National Geographic. It was found by Shawn Funk, when he was digging at the Millenium Mine near Fort McMurray in northern Alberta, Canada, on March 21, 2011. He hit something which seemed out of place from the surrounding rock, and decided to take a closer look. The fossil he uncovered was sent to the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology. They spent the next six years working on uncovering the beast within the 2,500-pound (1,100 kg) lump of earth. According to the museum, it is the best preserved armoured dinosaur in the world, including skin and armour, and is complete from the snout to hips. It took over 7,000 hours to prepare this specimen for research and display. After all that hard work, the finished result is now ready to be unveiled. And it reveals how the ancient creature used scaly armour to defend itself. Speaking to National Geographic, paleobiologist Jakob Vinther, from the University of Bristol, said: '[It] might have been walking around a couple of weeks ago. 'I've never seen anything like this.' The fossil is a newfound species of nodosaur, which lived midway through the Cretaceous period, between 110 million and 112 million years ago. The creatures were around 18 feet (five metres) long on average, and weighted up to 3,000 pounds (1,300 kg). It featured two 20-inch-long spikes which protruded from its shoulders. The researchers believe that the this armored plant-eater lumbered through what is now western Canada, until a flooded river swept it into open sea. But the dinosaur's undersea burial preserved its armor in exquisite detail. The fossilised remains of this particular specimen are so well preserved that remnants of skin still cover bumpy armour plates along the dinosaur's skull. As Michael Greshko wrote for National Geographic, such level of preservation 'is a rare as winning the lottery.' 'The more I look at it, the more mind-boggling it becomes. 'Fossilized remnants of skin still cover the bumpy armor plates dotting the animal's skull. 'Its right forefoot lies by its side, its five digits splayed upward. 'I can count the scales on its sole. ' Caleb Brown, a postdoctoral researcher at the museum, told the writer 'We don't just have a skeleton. 'We have a dinosaur as it would have been.' The researchers say it may even have more to give. Its skeleton, for example, remains mostly obscured in skin and armor. However, reaching the dinosaur’s bones would require destroying its outer layers. CT scans funded by the National Geographic Society have revealed little, as the rock remains stubbornly opaque. The exhibit will now form part of The Royal Tyrrell Museum’s new exhibit, Grounds for Discovery, in Drumheller, Alberta. 'Visitors will explore the personal stories and exceptional specimens that have been discovered as a result of the Museum’s collaboration with numerous industries such as housing and road construction, mining, wind turbine development, and oil and gas. 'New discoveries and a new species of dinosaur will be revealed,' it says of the exhibit.
A couple in Roanoke, Virginia, nearly caught themselves in a grizzly situation. Ryan and Marybeth McClanahan were at home on Thursday morning, when they heard their car horn honking. They came out to discover it was a bear cub sitting in the front seat of their SUV. The bear had locked itself inside the car - reportedly looking for snacks - before law enforcement were called to the scene to allow the bear to escape.
A man named Maniram who’s the caretaker of a farmhouse in Haryana’s Panipat district was recently killed by the 2nd most ferocious of dog breeds- the Rottweiler. The incident took place earlier this week when Maniram had merely proceeded towards the guard dog to unchain him, when the dog attacked.
A kayaker was caught on video attempting to out-paddle an alligator in Mobile Bay near Spanish Fort, Alabama. The heart-stopping footage which lasts just 15 seconds, was caught on camera by Shannon Collins. It has been viewed nearly 270,000 times since it was posted on Sunday. Shannon said that she was eating at a restaurant when the man in the kayak appeared. Following just feet behind, an alligator can be seen stealthily approaching. The kayaker begins to paddle faster as the deadly reptile gets closer. Eventually the man paddles out of view and it is not clear what happens to him. 'When you really really really don't want to tip over your kayak...' Shannon wrote on her Facebook page. She later added some context to the gripping video clip stating that the gator was simply just hanging out in the reeds until the man in the kayak got closer and lingered for a few minutes. As the man hovered in the water, it was long enough to tempt the gator to leave its hiding place and follow the man in the kayak. Shannon said that she then spoke with the man once he had made it back to shore. 'The kayaker was an avid outdoors-man who was used to seeing lots of gators,' she wrote. 'He was very nonchalant when we talked to him at the shore...not at all panicked (like I would have been!).'
He was fleeing a predator, but this kangaroo found himself in deeper trouble when he lost his way in the sea. Footage shows two men rescuing the roo, named Skippy, after he took a dip to escape a dingo on Seventeen Seventy beach in Northern Queensland. Skippy is seen looking soaked and startled among the waves as the two men calm him and pull him from harm’s way. The men, from Discovery Coast Snake Catchers, are seen approaching the roo from behind, grabbing his tail and taking him to shore. The kangaroo is understood to have suffered bite wounds and exhaustion but is now being nursed back to health by wildlife carers. The video has drawn more than 9,000 views on Facebook page and praise for the pair’s work in rescuing the roo. ‘What were his injuries?’ wrote one commenter. ‘Bite marks around upper tail and very exhausted and stressed. He should be fine with time to heal. ‘So glad to hear that Skippy is in good hands’ wrote one commenter.’
It was a terrifying sight: A bear with his paws up against the glass, trying to enter a home. A neighbor says the animal was on a mission after it tried climbing onto the deck and peering into the back window of a woman's house. A neighbor called police when the unwanted visitor wouldn't go away. Neighbors are hoping this guest won't be back anytime soon.
A lion attacked and wounded its trainer during a performance at the Buffalo Circus in Doullens, near Amiens, on May 7.Dramatic video from a woman in the audience shows the lion grappling with the trainer before being subdued, allowing the trainer to escape. The trainer, named in French reports as Steeve Loberot, was badly wounded in the head and throat, and transported by helicopter to a hospital in Amiens. He was operated on for several hours. Buffalo Circus said he was recovering. In a post on Facebook, the circus also said that, contrary to some early reports, the lion would not be euthanized.
