The internet has trained us to expect the unexpected when watching anything from Russia, but this is a little too ridiculous!
A land fisherman caught a record-breaking 805lb mako shark – and then barbecued and ate it with his friends. Joey Polk, 29, and his two cousins Earnie Polk, 43, and Kenny Peterson, 21, battled the 11ft predator for more than an hour before finally hauling it onto the shore at a secret location on the Florida Panhandle. The Polk family normally release their catches and have helped local groups tag hundreds for conservation. However, this shark was too tired after the epic battle and to avoid wasting him the trio enjoyed their catch at a jumbo-sized family barbecue.
A four ton African elephant was left to slowly rot from the inside out after cruel poachers shot it with a poisoned arrow. After being safely tranquillised, the medical team from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and Kenyan Wildlife Service cut open a huge absess on the elephant’s side, before removing dead muscle tissue and extracting the arrow. The vets then cleaned and packed the wound with green clay, a substance believed to have strong antibacterial properties. Awakening from the anaesthetic, the elephant rose from its slumber, fit enough to return to the herd.
“F**k me!” bellowed Doctor Ramsey, reeling in vile delight behind his paper mask as he forcefully penetrated the mother’s abdominal cavity with his cruel gloved digits. His waiting mouth a new home for a fistful of tiny sleeping fish children, hundreds in number and born of a violent theft. Straight from the safety of her nurturing womb into the stomach of a hungry savage beast. “If you fish had a god”, Doctor Ramsey thought, his lips quivering with every chew of his fresh meal, “He is not here today.”
A lioness almost had her leg ripped off when a male buffalo gored her. Emergency vets scrambled to the middle of the Masai Mara Nature Reserve in Kenya when they heard about Siena’s life threatening injuries. Staff at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust — a specialist elephant rehabilitation centre — had to act quickly if they were to save the lioness. Dj Njoroge from the Kenyan Wildlife Trust was flown from Nairobi to the nature reserve where the injured lioness stood with her cubs.
