Two Newcastle fishermen had the scare of a lifetime when a five-metre shark began circling their tinny before head butting the engine as they were trying to get away. Tim Watson, 24, captured footage of the close encounter which occurred half an hour off shore from Blacksmiths beach. He and friend Allan de Sylva, 23, estimated the shark was a metre longer than their boat and only “half a foot” narrower than it. After such a close call, Mr Watson said he’d continue to go fishing and respected the fact he was in the shark’s environment. “I don’t think it will stop me, I won’t go that far out in a small boat again, though,” he said.
“On my way home today I met a few of my friends and they told me that there was a small dog stranded on one of Nišava’s river islands. So we went there to try to help but from our perspective there was little we could do without some gear and tools. We started calling various institutions and people but only Mr. Saša Pešić from “Dog shelter” came to the rescue. Faith in humanity restored!” – Zox Raymaker. Shout out to Alex Hax for the submission.
This is the moment a cat falls from a three-storey building and survives. Footage shows the cat crawling through a hole on a roof. As it desperately clings to the building, it suddenly loses its grip and plummets to the ground. F**king cat at the bottom chases him instantly. God damn, can I just get a second buddy? I just f**king fell off a building. Out of the frying pan and into the fire!
This is the moment an escaped elephant crushed a car by climbing on top of it during mating season at a Thai national park. The silver vehicle, carrying a family, was making its way through the Khao Yai National Park near Bangkok on the way to National Children’s Day celebrations nearby. However, the driver of the car was forced to stop as the male elephant wandered out into the middle of the road and started destroying their car. Fortunately the family inside were unharmed.
An undercover exposé at a spent hen slaughter plant in Butterfield, Minnesota revealed severe animal suffering. Utterly disgusted by this practice however I disagree with the message about eating less meat. I love eating meat, this issue can be fixed by killing them more humanely. Transporting them in better conditions, and making sure the birds are incapacitated before having their throats slit. What do you guys think? Disagree? Leave your thoughts in our comment section.

A female bullfighter was gored twice by the same bull while trying to kill it in a Mexico City bullring. A 1,090lb-bull named Gamusino threw Karla de los Angeles up over his head as she went in to kill it. She was treated by medics before going back to fight, when she was gored a second time. Deep slashes of 4.7inches and 3.9inches were made to the 25-year-old bullfighter’s thigh and gluteal muscles during the battle.
