A Fascinating Glimpse Into Churchill, Canada's Polar Bears Town

It's International polar bear day today so we thought would could be better than experiencing the magic of looking into the eye of a polar bear? 

If you happen to know someone who has seen polar bears in the wild, chances are they're most likely to have seen them in Churchill. The Canadian polar bear town in Manitoba calls itself the Polar Bear Capital of the World – deservedly so. Seeing the Churchill polar bears is a bucket list experience. Via: Travel2Next

A Special Greenhouse Cat Sanctuary In Canada Is a Home to Leukemia And FIV- Positive Cats

The Regional Animal Protection Society of Richmond, British Columbia (RAPS) is a truly special cat sanctuary in Canada that serves as a home for more than 500 unwanted and sick cats. The unique greenhouse in the sanctuary helps giving kitties the sunlight they crave for while allowing humans to spoil them with some TLC. According to their website: "It is now one of the largest cat sanctuaries in North America. The Sanctuary provides a safe permanent home to hundreds of feral, abandoned and surrendered cats. We are one of very few cat shelters that house leukemia and FIV-positive cats (neither disease affects humans or other animal species). These cats are housed in separate areas so that other cats are not exposed. In many shelters, a positive diagnosis would mean euthanasia. We ensure that they are loved and cared for during their lifetimes". For more, visit their instagram page

Canuck the crow has quite the reputation in Vancouver. The little thief recently tried to steal a knife from a crime scene and cops had to chase him down to get it back. Clearly the crow felt it needed to take justice into its own claws.
