What an unlikely friendship. A drowning crow was recently saved by a bear at Budapest Zoo. In a video captured by Aleksander Medves, the bear is seen eyeing the drowning crow in the water. The bear follows the crow before making the grand rescue. After seconds of suffering, the bear paws at the crow and eventually grabs its wing by the mouth. In an unexpected twist, the bear drops the crow onto land and goes on its merry way, eating vegetables in its path instead.

Man has exploited the ocean and its creatures for as long as mankind has existed. Now the sea creatures are fighting back! Arif Sabir was spearfishing with friends off the coast of Jupiter, Florida, when they encountered a large Goliath grouper. The men get a short laugh in just before the grouper takes a bite out of Sabir’s flipper and makes off with his catch, spear and all. The spear was recovered later. Never underestimate an ugly, slow-moving fish when you’re in their territory.

“At Linda Bean’s Maine Lobster in Rockland, Maine, workers are ripping live animals apart limb from limb. Some are dumped, still alive, into boiling water, while others are left in bins to die in agony. Workers tear off live lobsters’ claws and then use metal pipes to pry their heads from their bodies. Tails and claws are saved while the remaining parts of the lobsters’ bodies are trashed, still alive and able to feel pain. Crabs are suffering, too, as they are slammed against sharp metal spikes to break off their top shells, and then their exposed internal organs are violently scrubbed off with spinning brushes. Still alive, they are then slowly lowered into a vat of boiling water.” – Peta
Who ordered the anchovies? That’s what beach-goers may be asking after a huge swarm of the oily fish descended on the shallow waters of La Jolla Shores, California, this week. “It is rare to see so many anchovy abutting the surf zone,” said Professor Dave Checkley of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. “More usually, schools are seen hundreds of yards to many miles offshore.”
