A street dog in India was suffering from severe mange. Her skin had become hard like stone from the mange and she was emaciated. Watch her amazing recovery.
28-year-old surfer Allen Engelman was out at Florida’s Ocean Reef Park when a seven-foot spinner shark grabbed hold of his hand by the mouth and refused to let go. Blood, pain, and rigorous shaking ensued, followed by the eventual release of Engelman’s hand, a trip to the local hospital, and 15 stitches. Engelman, a commercial fisherman by trade, then returned to the same beach the following day for revenge hooking the shark he claims to be responsible.

You can see the bait fish being dragged to the cage before the shark hits it. That shark was expecting a tasty fish and got a steel cage in the face instead. I hope it didn’t injure itself for the sake of human entertainment. Is there a scarier creature on earth than a great white shark? I honestly can’t think of one. The big gap in the cage is to give the sharks a sporting chance I guess?

The team of wildlife photographers were shooting in the mountainous Limpopo Province of north east South Africa when the enraged young adult turned on them, ramming into the jeep and attempting to flip it with her tusks.
Rocky, a four-year-old laika-elkhound cross, had rushed out across Lake Constance in hot pursuit of a moose he and his owner, 26-year-old Jonas Lundh, had been stalking for hours. The beast escaped, but Mr Lundh became concerned when Rocky failed return. “I looked at my GPS (and saw) they were near the water, near the shore. So I began to run back toward the beach, for it had been cold at night and there may be situations with thin ice.” Indeed, Rocky, all too eager to please his master, had raced out onto glass-thin ice, only to fall through and become trapped just metres from the relative safety of the island the moose presumably fled to. “It happens every year that dogs are drowning on the ice,” Mr Lundh said.
The killing of Cecil, an iconic African lion illegally shot by an American trophy hunter in Zimbabwe earlier this year sparked worldwide outrage over the continued slaughter of threatened and endangered animals in the name of sport.
