The sheep that saved an elephant...

Elephant calf is orphaned. After rescue, he refuses to eat. As a last ditch effort, the rescuers bring in a sheep as a companion. Things don't go well at first, but soon they are inseparable...

Horse saved from frozen canal

I can't believe that this horse survived. He was in the frozen water for hours, and the water actually froze around him.

Doesn't he remind you of a kid throwing a tantrum and demanding to go home?

Now that's what I call a "do"...

Fennec hunts scorpion

Fennec hunting a scorpion. This fox reminds me of my puppy, the way he runs all over so excitedly. The scorpion takes entirely too long to die. Sucks to be eaten alive...

A one-man Village People

As it nears the shore, the calf falls through the ice, but is able to make it to dry land...

Gull swallows plastic bag

Tragic. Unfortunately I do admittedly use a lot of plastic bags. I have cats, and I use them for cleaning litter boxes. If someone can give me a realistic option, I would be happy to all but eliminate plastic bags from my life as much as reasonably possible...

Bureaucracy leads to death of 300,000 chicks and broilers

A Russian video. The blurb on TYWIKIWIDBI where I found the video states:
Found at English Russia, where this incident in the Kursk region was blamed on delinquent taxes and a convoluted bureaucracy. "The employees are putting to death one-day old chickens with tears. 'It’s as if a mother killed her child', – poultry-women explain their feelings."
If only they really did quickly put them to death. What they did was leave them to die.
