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.

A passing birdwatcher was walking in the Frampton Marshes in Lincolnshire, England when he noticed a herd of cows gathered around a puddle. When he stopped to see what the fuss was about he found this 5-day-old baby seal. 


The seal pup was found all alone without it's mother. The only guess to how it got in the middle of a cow field is a nearby creek. 


Fortunately the orphaned seal was rescued with the help of local seal sanctuary. This baby has a lot of weight to gain to be back in good shape but she is expected to recover and be rehabilitated into the wild.

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.

When media caught on to this wild pig's foster situation the attention got to be too much for him and he relocated with a new group of cows in a different meadow nearby. Amazingly, his new foster family accepted him as well and now he happily forages for bugs and acorns near his new grass-eating moms.
