Baby puffins, called pufflings, can lose their way when artificial lights make it difficult to navigate. This group saves them from harm and sends them back in the right direction.
Earl Grey is a cat who means business and he is campaigning for better animal rights all over Canada. His platform statment says it all:
Earl Grey, leader of the Tuxedo Party of Canada, asks the question, "Who stands on guard for me?"
Animals in Canada are currently NOT afforded adequate protection under the law. Due to loopholes, outdated wording (from 1892), and inadequate laws, convictions of animal cruelty are unlikely. Action is needed to change the laws and protect animals; without legal protection they are defenceless against mistreatment.
Good luck on the campaign trail, Earl Grey.
This happy reunion is the product of good police work. Lola the pug went missing and her owner Kate was devastated. Local police found Lola with people they suspect stole her. The full story is in the video description included below:
Police have arrested three people and charged one as part of their investigations into a series of burglaries and other thefts in the Harlow area. Officers executed a search warrant at a location in Fern Hill Lane, in Harlow, yesterday morning. Two men, aged 34 and 22, and a 23-year-old woman, all from Harlow, were arrested on conspiracy to burgle. The woman was also arrested on suspicion of theft after a pug was recovered during the searches. They were all taken to Harlow Police Station for questioning before being released on police bail pending further enquiries. The woman was released without charge in relation to the theft of the pug as there was insufficient evidence to proceed. The dog was later reunited with his owner at Harlow Police Station. Owner Kate Witham said: “I had been so worried about Lola since she went missing so when I got the call from the police I was over the moon. As soon as I saw her, her little tail went into overdrive and I instantly knew it was her. I am just so happy to have her back.”
Detective Inspector Alison Hooper said: “We have been working hard to tackle a recent spike in burglaries and car crime in the Harlow area and these arrests are just part of our response. We have also recently charged another man with conspiracy to steal and two others with burglary and they are currently before the courts. If anyone has information which could assist our enquiries then I would urge them to call Harlow CID on 101. Alternatively they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, it offers rewards of up to £1,000 for information leading to the arrest and or conviction of offenders.”
A brave volunteer went headfirst into a drain pipe filled with rushing water to rescue a kitten in danger. Safety precautions were taken to protect the volunteer, a makeshift dam was used to slow the amount of water in the storm drain and she was tied to a rope so that she could be saved if the rescue didn't go as planned. Luckily for the kitten, who has been named Stormy, everything went well. A firefighter helped Stormy recover by giving her a little oxygen mask that helped her breathe. She's now doing well in foster care and someday she'll be able to be adopted by a loving, permanent home. She looks like she's recovering quickly.
