A villager in India was alarmed at the loud and panicked roars echoing up from a 60-foot well near his home and was shocked when he looked inside only to discover a drowning leopard at the bottom fighting for its life. The rescuers first built a small platform made of long sticks and suspended it just above the water line to give the leopard a refuge, before doing a proper rescue.

Gordon Ramsay was accused of encouraging people to break the law after he went bird-shooting for dinner. Ramsay shot six rooks, then got his son Jack to collect them before cutting out their breasts and pan-frying them for a “rook salad”.

A gang of sharks can be seen swarming violently during the whale buffet off the shores of Cape Cuvier, near Carnarvon in Western Australia. Grant and his son Sam Eastland were awe-struck at the spectacle, which saw some of the sharks come so close to the shore they almost beached themselves. For Sam, the lure of touching a shark proved too much as he ran into the water during the frenzy. “I wanted to see if I could grab it,” he said. “But I got a bit too wet.”

When you win the lotto and Centrelink is about to take your dole away so you have to show them you work. How do you even get a tow bar for a Lambo? Respect. “It’s not practical,” they said. “No boot space, bloody hopeless,” they said. “Can’t go piggin’ in a lambo, no place for the dogs,” they said. Sure showed those c*nts.

He’s one of the funniest men on the planet, but Kevin Hart wasn’t laughing when he came face to face with some native Australian creatures on Today. The comedian freaked out in front of his Ride Along 2 co-star, Ice Cube, when the Channel Nine breakfast team brought out some special guests. “I didn’t work this hard to make it here to die today,” said Hart, clearly terrified by what was lurking inside the animal handler’s boxes.
This is the moment an enraged wild boar charged at sunbathers relaxing on a beach after it emerged from the water.

There is no documentation before ancient Egypt that mentions the existence of cats. And in ancient Egypt, they were worshipped as gifts from the gods. Ever watch a cat wake from a deep sleep and run out of the room in an instant? Transmissions from the mothership coming in, and they must be alone. Domestic house cats, it seems, may be alien sentinels—sent to spy on us and report their findings back to the mother ship. Or, as some theorists have put it, they’re like alien camcorders tracking our every move.
