The non-traditional family trio is caring for three little baby eagles that hatched in a nest along the Mississippi River near Fulton, Illinois. Stewards of the Upper Mississippi River Refuge, set up the webcam in 2011, allowing the world watch the incredible interactions between the three, two males and a female, which is incredibly rare to see as males tend to be territorial. 

The eagles have also been named, the males go by Valor I and Valor II, and the female is named Starr. 

According to the Stewards of the Upper Mississippi Refuge, these birds have quite a back story, as well. The original trio was formed in 2013, when the female then chose a new mate, Valor II, and Valor I decided to stay throughout the breeding season. The original female was killed by another eagle in 2017, yet the two males stayed together and courted a new female after their first mate died. That female was Starr. And Here we are, two years later and three baby eaglets receiving extra love and care from a total of three parents.

Son Goes Overseas For School So His Mother Sent Him Daily Updates Of His Dog

It's extremely difficult when you leave for school. Some kids stay close by but then there are others that go far far away. It's not hard enough to leave parents and friends, but what about that loyal companion that has always stuck by you? Your best friend... your pet. So one mom knew just what she had to do, to ease that pain. So posted on imgur;

"My husband made my son walk a leash around the block twice a day for an entire year in order to earn the privilege of having a dog. My son was quite tenacious and never missed a day. My husband learned never Make a Deal with someone unless you're willing to follow through with the terms. So, when it came time for him to go to school overseas he was so heartbroken and missed his pup so much. So I sent him a picture every day to cheer him up. These are just a few excerpts from our year. He just returned home and the dog did remember him"

A daring mother and son duo have hand-raised 14 bears in their back garden. In the heart of Bearadise Ranch, Florida, Monica Welde and her son, Johnny IV, spend their days rolling around with bears that weigh up to 1,000lbs. The Welde family have looked after grizzly bears, black bears and polar bears for the last 91 years – using their license to provide for those in need of a home. But the family tradition came under threat last year when Monica's husband, Johnny III, died of a heart attack just after he turned 60. But with the help of her son, a devastated Monica has put her loss to one side so she can concentrate on continuing the family legacy and caring for their beloved pet bears. Via: Barcroft Animals
