When an alligator grabbed her dog on a golf course, this brave woman jumped in after him. Fortunately they both came out of the incident alive!
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.
It's an unfortunate fact that many animal shelters euthanize the animals they are unable to care for if they haven't been adopted. These two dogs were next on the list so a picture of the dogs hugging each other with a plea for help was posted on the Angels Among Us Pet Rescue Facebook page. Thanks to a gracious foster home and a helpful internet community these puppies were saved! According to a follow up to the original post it took only two hours and six minutes (they counted) to find these pups a good home. Now they'll have a whole family to hug!
A man in Canada fought off a cougar to save his dog's life. When the cougar took hold of his adorable dachshund he punched it in the face so that it would let the dog go. This kind of bravery might seem foolhardy but experts say he was right to fight back. Thanks to his decision to stand his ground both the man and the dog are alive and safe.
