Losing faith in the possibility of love and peace between beasts in this increasingly cruel, suspicious world? Look no further than this video posted to Facebook over the weekend by local attorney and volunteer animal rescuer Mark Freeley, in which his English cream golden retriever Storm, who will hereafter be known as the world’s best dog, saves a baby deer from drowning in the Long Island Sound.

Actually, it’s just the circus giving the bear some fresh air and drumming up some publicity while they are at it. But seriously, turn this concept into a movie!

An animal activist ‘rescued’ a fish after the man who caught it left it flapping on the pavement, sparking a pretty intense moral debate. Is this activism gone too far?

Each year feral hogs cause millions of dollars in damage in the form of damaged crops, contaminated water supplies, broken equipment, transmission of disease and injury to livestock. Due to their intelligence, adaptability, and prolific breeding habits, traditional methods of hunting and trapping have been largely ineffective in reducing the feral hog population.

Two vicious pit bulls pulled their owner to the ground as they brutally mauled a cat in a horrific attack. CCTV footage shows the black cat lying the driveway of a home before the dogs , which are both on leads, walk past. Immediately spotting the feline, they both lunge for it, causing their female owner to land face-first on the concrete. Since the footage was shared online, it has amassed thousands of views and comments by shocked people. One wrote “That could have been some little kid playing in their front yard.” And another said: “She can’t control one of the beasts, so she gets two. Notice one of them even slips his collar.”

A swim in the ocean turned into quite the whale tale for two men at Whytecliff Park over the weekend. Video shot by Vancouver photographer Robin Leveille shows three killer whales moving quickly towards the shore before panning over to show the unidentified men scrambling onto the rocks at the West Vancouver park. One orca swims right up to the shore where the men were swimming seconds earlier. I would have been scared sh*tless.

In lawless waters, whale sharks can get ridden like a circus elephant. These guys go full rodeo on the animal, and it doesn’t seem to mind at all except for the one idiot who hops onto its head. Doing this anywhere besides the Middle East will probably result in prison.

Not really sure what in the name of Florida is going on here, but they seem to be treating this alligator like a regular fish that doesn’t have rows of flesh-tearing teeth!

Fish stories are famous for being exaggerated, but this particular fish story has the video to prove it’s true. A fisherman was able to reel in a large hammerhead shark off of Panama City Beach in Florida. Curtis Williams was flying a drove over the shore when he saw the epic catch-and-release encounter. “I was vacationing at the beach and was going to video a nice pleasant sunset, I noticed a man wading in the water and something close to him. I brought the drone down and quickly realised a monster hammerhead was next to him.”

Known for eating other spiders, Portia is a genus of the jumping spider that is able to leap up to 50 times her own body length. Captured by stunning close-up footage, we get to witness this amazing spider use its super powers to dine on prey three times her size.

Masked thieves killed three family dogs with harpoons and an electrical spear to steal them to be served on the dining plate. The first dog was believed to have been electrocuted by the long spear which had cables connected to a power pack on the man’s back. The second dog appears to be killed with an arrow from a harpoon type gun which was visibly implanted on its side as it gets dragged away. Bastards!

It’s like on cartoons where the dog is really, really hungry and he looks at the cow and actually sees a giant ribeye steak standing in front of him. I love that pause after the dog takes the first bite, the cow’s just like “The f**k bro?”

Earlier this month, it was announced that 23-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps had grown tired of racing humans and will instead race a great white shark. That race, which will air on July 23 for Discovery’s Shark Week, now has a super intense trailer with an appropriately dramatic name: Phelps Vs. Shark: The Battle for Ocean Supremacy.

Beau Greaves knows a thing or two about catching crab, and he isn’t afraid to go deep to chase a big score. This huge crab would have made a meal fit for 10 kings!

A 14-year-old western lowland gorilla named Zola has become an internet star after a short video surfaced of him dancing in a kiddie pool at the Dallas Zoo. The zoo schedules “enrichment sessions” for its animals in order to provide them with mental and physical stimulation to increase natural behaviors.

“This definitely was one of the craziest experiences in my life and I’ve had many, who would have thought I would see some Moby Dick right here outside the Verrazano on my boy’s 19 footer. That humpback was chasing bunker all the way up to the side jumped out of the water and tapped the hull of my boat, knocking bunker into the boat. Crazy, I know it sounds like a fish story, but these #NewJersey waters are serious!”

A Gallatin Police officer was charged by a large Rottweiler while responding to a complaint about a vicious dog, the department said. A neighbour had called Sumner County Animal Control saying they might “have to shoot the dog due to its viciousness,” police said. An officer approached a resident of the home where the dog lived, who said the dog was probably “running loose again.” While walking in the driveway, the officer was “aggressively charged” by the dog. The officer fired a single shot, which did not hit the dog.
