News From Canada: “Gator On The Loose” Turns Out To Be a Large Beaver

Brampton continues to market itself as the Florida of Canada.

Police in Brampton, Ontario, received a complaint on Saturday evening of a "five-to-six foot" alligator on the loose. After a brief investigation, police determined it was just a large beaver.

Just for reference, the average North American beaver is around a meter long, including its tail. Your average American alligator, on the other hand, is about triple that size, which opened up the whole situation to even more questions including "How do you confuse a beaver for an alligator?", "What is happening in Brampton?" and "Is social isolation melting all our brains?".

Adorable Two-Headed Goat was Born In a Wisconsin Farm

Nueske Farm in Wisconsin is a small local farm who is not used to too much buzz or news coverage.

But April 5th was a very special day on the farm as one of its goats gave birth to a two-headed baby: "Had our first two-headed baby boy today! He needed some help coming out after his brother that was perfectly normal," the farm wrote on Facebook at the time. "The mom is doing good, we brought him home to give him some extra attention and care. Hope he lives!"

The adorable Janus, named after the two-faced Roman god of beginnings and transitions, became an online sensation ever since and captured the hearts of hundreds of people who check in on him every day on the farm's Facebook page.

"I've heard of two-headed cows, and lizards, but not a goat," the farm owner told Fox 11 News. "There are four eyes, and two mouths, but they weren't sure if the middle eyes worked. But they were positive about the outside eyes working. Aside from some physical therapy sessions to help Janus learn how to walk and hold his two heads up, he's a healthy baby goat. He's a normal goat. We just have to help him. We try to help him as much as we can, and give him a break when he gets tired," she said. "Hopefully he can walk in a month. That would be good. I think that would be our goal."

With all the buzz, the farm even created a T-shirt featuring a photo of Janus and the words "Dare to be different."

We're totally in love!

Meet Alex, she's just like every other dog and thanks to her wheelchair her dad built her, she can do it all! Alex, an outgoing and adorable ray of sunshine was in an unfortunate accident when she was just a pup. The accident left her paralyzed. But her parents did not give up. They went above and beyond to create the perfect wheelchair for Alex so too can do everything and anything.

And through it, all her dad (aka owner) decided that every dog deserves a second chance and started creating custom made wheelchairs for dogs in need.

Bionic Cat Goes Viral For Being The First Cat In Italy To Receive Prosthetic Legs

A Christmas miracle: Vito is a six-year-old cat from Milan, Italy, who has become an internet "superstar" as the first in Italy to receive two prosthetic hind legs following a serious road accident. 

The poor cat had both rear legs amputated after they were crushed by a vehicle in Milan while his owners were away on their honeymoon. The couple, former basketball player Silvia Gottardi and her wife Linda Ronzoni, returned home immediately. Vito's story has been widely shared with the hashtag #vituzzosuperstar. His surgery to attach two prostheses by inserting them directly into his remaining upper leg bones has reportedly never before been achieved successfully in Italy. Here are some photos of this adorable Italian cat trying to face a new life on two legs.
