Ruby is a 4-year-old Hungarian Vizsla. She’s been riding trails with Tom since she was a puppy, and she’s definitely faster than you are. With a trail dog by your side you always have a riding partner who is ready to go, can bomb jumps, take the perfect inside line, stay right on your wheel, and do it time after time.

As he was filtering his morning water, Yosemite backpacker Chas Davis became aware of an adolescent-sized black bear that had hopped into Falls Creek apparently attempting to get to the other side. Davis, standing with two other backpackers to give strength in numbers since there was another bear nearby, began filming the swimming bear from a bridge. He certainly didn’t expect this to happen!

A group of tigers at a Chinese zoo were given a special treat yesterday afternoon, a live donkey. In a video that has gone viral on Chinese social media, a reluctant donkey is seen being pushed out of the back of a truck into a moat surrounding the tiger enclosure inside the Yancheng Wild Animal World in Changzhou, Jiangsu province. Visitors then look on in horror as the tigers swim out and start doing their thing. Though apparently these tigers are bit out of practice. It took them 30 minutes to kill the donkey as it struggled in the water.

The movie “Jaws” makes it seem like sharks prowl the seas looking to eat the relatives and friends of specific town police chiefs. But in reality, sharks don’t particularly like the taste of human, and most shark attacks are a case of mistaken identity. For example, you’re a surfer floating on your board, but from the waters below you look a lot like a sea lion. So, the shark goes in for a nibble.

When you spend any amount of time in the ocean, you end up rationalizing why you won’t get attacked by a shark. You might tell yourself: We’re not their food source. They’re looking for fish or seals. Are they even hungry? And then something like this happens: A shark in Monterey Bay attacked a man in a sea kayak, a harrowing incident caught on film by two onlookers. “I was sure I was done. It was like a horror movie. The shark came toward me, dropped the kayak, then dove straight down below me where I couldn’t see it.”

“I am so happy after this confrontation with a black bear during our spring hunt. No wounds except a bruised elbow and ego where the bear threw me down.

“This just proves that Rattlesnakes are not out to harm us. They only bite as a last resort. Their venom is for hunting, it is valuable to them and they only use it when needed. This was a wild encounter with a highly dangerous venomous snake. Do not attempt.” – @nickthewrangler
