Ontario coyote rescued after getting head stuck in bucket for over a week
The Oakville and Milton Humane Society has rescued a coyote this weekend from a bucket that animal experts believe had been on its head for well over a week.
The humane society became aware of the bucket-headed animal sometime last Tuesday after it was spotted near Bronte Creek Provincial Park.
A three-month-old puppy in California got stuck in a used tire. The poor little girl needed help from animal services in Riverside, California, but the animal service officers needed reinforcements from the nearby fire station.
The puppy’s neck had swelling, making the rescue attempt more difficult.
WCVB reports that “members of Riverside County Fire. Firefighters from Riverside County Fire Station No. 69 in Rancho Mirage took turns using a Sawzall to safely cut a piece in the wheel to provide enough space for an easier rescue. After a few moments, out came the Australian cattle dog.”
Space dog Laika. Harambe the Gorilla. And now, the bungee pig.
Three animals whose poor brains cannot comprehend what good they’ve done for society.
A Chinese theme park, which aren’t particularly known for their ethics and safety rules, made a live pig bungee jump to attract visitors to the park.
The south-west China park, called the Meixin Red Wine Town Park, dropped the hog a whopping 223 feet on Saturday.
The video, which gives new meaning to the expression “when pigs fly,” shows the nameless pig being dropped and squealing its lungs off.
The video also features behind the scene footage of how the park’s staff transported the pig up so many stairs.
The South China Morning Post reported a park spokesperson labelled the event as “just a bit of entertainment,” and that the animal was already going to be killed for Chinese New Year celebrations anyway.
“It’s our opening day today. We let the pig make the first jump because pork prices have been very high this year and recently they dropped a bit,” said the unnamed owner of the park.
The park was then at the receiving end of online criticism, to which they would eventually apologize.
“We sincerely accept netizens’ criticism and advice and apologize to the public,” said the park in a statement. “We will improve our marketing of the tourist site, to provide tourists with better services.”
A park spokesperson said the pig was slaughtered for food after the bungee jump.
The Post Millennial reached out to PETA for comment but hasn’t yet heard back from the animal rights organization.
Update: The following video is now also rapidly gaining traction online.
An alligator was spotted crossing the street in Montreal in the cold on Sunday. The incident took place on Jarry St. in Villeray.
The first person to notice the alligator was Mayssam Samaha, a resident of the neighbourhood. Samaha and her friends were at Baristello cafe and saw the cold-blooded reptile making its way across the busy street in the freezing cold from the window.
According to Global News, Samaha and many others made their way out to the street to help the alligator cross without getting hit by any passing cars.
Piero Ciampoli, the owner of the cafe, was the first to call the police.
“It was a pretty funny phone call,” said Samaha.
Ciampoli said, “They didn’t believe me.”
After the call Ciampoli went to a fire station that was close by and had the firefighters verify his claim.
The owner of the alligator showed up before the police and he put the animal back into his minivan where it had apparently escaped from. The van was parked close by.
The police found the man and confirmed that he was the rightful owner.
In a tweet Montreal’s Mayor, Valérie Plante said that the reptile was used for an animal education program and the owner obtained the alligator legally.
Korean horse Jingang learned a trick all on his own more commonly performed by dogs.
Any time someone tries to mount the stallion he acts like a weak pony and dramatically collapses as if he’s been struck to death by lightning. He even sticks his tongue out, eyes twitching, and puts his legs and hooves in awkward positions for added effect.
The stallion’s horsing around to avoid working got mixed reaction from people online.
“He’s lame! Shoot him!” said one Twitter user, suggesting he might be better use sent to the glue factory.
“He’s not lazy, he’s smart. Why carry such a heavy load when you can get away with it,” said another.
One of ranch workers trying to train him to let people on his back said it’s “cute but naughty”.
