Romanian Firefighter performs CPR & mouth to mouth on Dog to save his life. The dog was found in a house during a fire. He survived thanks to the firefighter's procedures and was then transported to a veterinary hospital.
It is never easy to say a final goodbye to a loved one, although Rideout Memorial Hospital in Marysville, California, was kind enough to let a dog called Mollie bid farewell to her owner, Ryan Jessen, on November 30.
The father of a 3-year-old boy from Henneman whose family dog attacked his child says he has no idea why the Rottweiler did it.
Francois Slabbert, 30, a well-known photographer, shot the dog after the attack on Tuesday morning.
Slabbert was on his way to Ventersburg to take their 1-year-old daughter Liné to the doctor when one of their workers called him to tell him what happened.
Slabbert said he was in shock and shot the dog because he was scared that it would attack one of the workers too.
Slabbert said the boy, Marco, was mainly bitten on the head and his scalp was torn off. He was due to go into surgery on Tuesday in the Mediclinic Welkom to clean the wound and reattach his scalp.
The enormous arachnid was spotted by Melanie Jade Ottaway at her home in Beerwah, Queensland, Australia, as she and her partner Troy James, 28, sat down for dinner on Sunday night.
They noticed they'd been joined by a huge huntsman spider - around five inches across - sitting on the glass door to the decking with a gecko caught helplessly between its mandibles.
Melanie Jade, 29, grabbed her camera to capture the terrifying scene.
She said: "We just sat down to have dinner at the dining table and noticed something massive on the glass sliding door, I got up to have a closer look and there it was, a huge huntsman with a gorgeous little gecko in his mouth.
"It was too late to save him, so we let nature take its path.
"It's creepy isn't it? But fascinating in a strange way."
Huntsmen spiders can grow really big, with some species measuring 12 inches across. They typically hunt alone and wander hunting prey at speed rather than using webs.
They typically hunt cockroaches and other pests and are sometimes a welcome addition to a home. Although their size can scare people their bite, although venomous, is not fatal but has been linked to infections in humans.
Earlier this month a dad of five almost died after a holiday spider bite left him with a rotting hole in his leg.
Simon John, 45, and his five-month-old baby Harrison were BOTH preyed on by a mystery arachnid while asleep on a caravan break.
The Care for Wild Africa Rhino Sanctuary was contacted last Friday regarding a rescue of an 8 month old female calf from a reserve in the Mpumalanga region. Its mother was poached a few days before and only glimpses of the calf had been seen by the reserves anti-poaching unit who noticed that it had been shot in its front left leg.
A search and rescue team was deployed, however due to heavy rain the spoor (tracks) of the rhino calf was washed away. The small calf had also run to a section of the reserve where there was extremely thick bush that hindered the ability of the pilots who were scouting from the air. Nevertheless, extra trackers were called in from a neighboring farm to help in the search. Incredibly, nearly 8 days after the poaching incident and with hope fading that the calf may not survive, the helicopter called to say they had spotted it. Petronel, Veterinarian Dr. Albertus Coetzee and the reserves anti-poaching unit immediately set out to find and sedate the calf. The orphaned rhino was then transported immediately to the Care for Wild Africa Rhino Sanctuary and is undergoing treatment for the bullet wound.

A shocking video shows a New Jersey woman throwing a cat from the third floor of a balcony while someone laughs in the background.
The clip, which surfaced on social media Saturday, shows how the cat fell three stories onto the sidewalk, ending his fall alive but completely immobile on the concrete. The woman and at least one other person can be heard giggling as the poor pet goes flying into the air.
A 19-year-old woman was arrested Saturday and charged with animal cruelty after a concerned citizen alerted authorities about the footage, NJ.com reported. Police believe Tikeemah J Lassiter, of Clinton, is the woman in the video.
Lassiter is accused of throwing someone else's cat through the window Thursday while visiting family in Newark.
"Spent 2 weeks snorkelling and swimming with sealions in the Galapagos Islands. They were all so playful and it was a magical experience. Unfortunately, one didn't like my filming and attacked biting my arm and thigh. Our guides had never experienced anything like this happening before, so luckily for everyone else this is a very rare event. I have only superficial wounds. I'm sure if it wanted to it could have been much worse.
A driver from South Africa was minding his own business on a highway when a hippo suddenly decided to ram his car, leaving the vehicle mangled. Wilus Ceronie, 26, was traveling back from Mozambique after his first day at a new job Friday when he squared off with the hippo who happened to be at the side of the road. "Even though there was damage done to the bonnet of my vehicle and the door couldn't open, I'm grateful there were no serious injuries at the end of day," he told Latest Sightings.
While construction workers sometimes come across interesting historical stuff while digging, what they don’t expect to find is something that is alive and very angry to have been disturbed.
That’s exactly what happened to a bunch of workmen over in Bolu, Turkey, while they were digging a hole in the ground, the U.K. Daily Mail reported.
Video posted to YouTube on Sunday showed a very large, and very angry, brown bear crawling out of the hole that the workmen had just started excavating.
The bear wasn’t too happy with all the noise that was being made by the workmen. The bear was very clearly aggressive when it attempted to climb out of the hole.
That’s pretty understandable. I’d be pretty angry too if someone just broke a hole open over my head and destroyed the place I was staying in.
The U.K. Metro noted that some believe the bear may have fallen into the hole, which was near a chicken farm, but that is only a theory. Ultimately, it may never be known why that bear was in the hole.
A huge grizzly bear trapped under a pit of concrete in a forest was freed by construction workers in Bolu, Turkey.
The bear is obviously distressed by the big metal machinery and once freed it legs it down a hill and to freedom, yay!
In times of trouble, one man whipped out his camera to film the disaster, when something emerges from behind the cameraman. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Um, no. It’s a man. It’s very clearly a shirtless, barefoot man. Swooping to the rescue, he tries to help the dog by grabbing him by the scruff of the neck, but the petrified pup bites back, literally, making this rescue harder than it already is. Luckily, this unknown rescuer doesn’t mind a couple of bites for the good of dogkind, and finally, he manages to drag the panicking animal out with minimal fuss, to a chorus of cheers from bystanders.
This man deserves a medal, but if he’s a superhero, he could do with picking out a costume, or at the very least a belt. The video ends with him jogging towards the camera and back into the shadows, maybe to broodingly watch over this Russian town, but probably to put a shirt on.
Check out this little guy piggy nursing with mom. These are some candid moments caught on camera of the newborn Babirusa piglet at the Chester Zoo in the UK. It's one of the rarest pig species in the world. Animal experts say very few people have ever witnessed Babirusa pigs give birth so this video is quite unique. Babirusa pigs are native to Indonesia. There's an estimated 5, 000 remaining.
BBC viewers were scared stiff last night by dramatic footage in the long-awaited series Planet Earth 2 that showed dozens of snakes chasing baby iguanas. The astonishing television which showed marine iguanas attempting to outrun a knot of racer snakes on Fernandina Island was labelled ‘the stuff of nightmares’. Hatchlings could be seen emerging from the sand of the Galápagos island in the Pacific Ocean in June for what is the snakes’ best feeding opportunity of the year.
