A Chinese man bought two puppies that he was told would grow up to become good watch dogs. For two years he took care of them as they grew and acted differently than other dogs. He finally discovered that they were not dogs, but protected Asian black bears when he visited a wildlife exhibit featuring the threatened species of bear. Fortunately he was able to contact the forestry police who found the bears a more suitable home.

The panda team at the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington, D.C. was excited to greet their newest baby panda on the evening of August 22. They were surprised to see that a second cub was born around 10 P.M. that night. It's rare for giant pandas to have twins, in fact this is only the third time that a pair of panda cubs have been born in the United States. 

At the moment the zoo is working to alternate individual time with the panda mother for each cub to make sure she can devote enough attention to each of them. So far Mei Xiang has been adjusting to motherhood well, you can see her immediately picking up and cleaning her second cub in the video below.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Saskatchewan ended up arresting a goat when the unruly cafe guest refused to leave a local Tim Hortons. Restaurant workers told police they tried to shoo him away but he just kept walking back inside. The goat had escaped from the University of Saskatchewan Rodeo and was probably just looking for a warm place to sleep.  Fortunately the goat was returned to his owner and didn't have to spend a night in the slammer.
