Giant Tortoise Apprehended By Local Police

According to a recent BBC report: "A giant tortoise managed to make it about a mile across a town before being apprehended by police. Titan, who weighs in at a whopping nine stone (60kg), was found in Kesgrave, near Ipswich, on Friday. It took three police officers to lift the wayward pet into a van and drive him home to his worried owner." Now that is one heavy tortoise! 

"Richard Aston said it was a 'mystery' how Titan made it that far as he had not broken through his shelter. 'Maybe he teleported there,' he said. When police called Mr. Aston, he was not at home so had no idea his 35-year-old pet African sulcata tortoise was on the loose. 'There was no sign of the fence being broken, and he can't jump over it - it's three feet high,' he said." How on earth did Titan manage to find his way out of his enclosed area?? All that matters is that now he's safe and sound!

16 Awdorable Pit Bulls: Pawsitively Misunderstood Doggos

Today we're here to debunk some negative myths about the super lovable Pitt Bull dog breed! Whether you love them, fear them a little, or are on the fence about them, pit bull terriers are extremely popular! You will find them in just about every American community. And while these awdorable doggos are gaining popularity, many people still buy into the many myths and hysteria that surrounds them.

It is a MYTH that Pit Bulls are more aggressive than other dogs! 

The truth: "The American Temperament Test Society, which provides a uniform national program of temperament testing for dogs, has found that pit-bull-terrier-like dogs passed the test at a higher rate than many other dog breeds, such as golden retrievers and border collies. Some people think these dogs are somehow physiologically and genetically different from other dogs, but they aren't."

Something to keep in mind!

Elephant Recognizes Vet Who Saved His Life 12 Years Prior

Animals, just like humans, are emotional creatures and very sensitive. Though they cannot speak, they express themselves in other ways that are just as beautiful if not more. Plai Thang, this 31 year old elephant hailing from Thailand, was gravely ill in 2011. He managed to survive the terrible disease of trypanosomiasis all thanks to the care and treatment he received from his veterinarian, Pattaraapol Maneeon. This vet went above and beyond to careful and eventually same this gentle giant. Even if many years have passed, Plai Thang will never forget the treatment he received from his beloved vet. 

After months of treatment, Plai Thang was released into the forest. 12 years later, a beautiful reunion has occurred between the elephant and his vet. The meeting took place recently when Pattarapol was touring the area to which Plai Thang was released. The vet recognized the sound of an elephant and managed to call out to him in return. Plai Thang responded to his call and raised his trunk to Pattaraapol to express his recognition and gratitude. We love wholesome reunion stories like these. It fills us with positivity and good vibes!

Kings And Queens Of Garbage And Our Hearts: Racoons

What do you think of when you think of raccoons? Whether you live surrounded by trees or skyscrapers, racoons are likely part of your local wildlife population. They are some of the most adaptable creatures in America, able to successfully sustain themselves in both rural and urban areas as well as a diverse range of climates! Makes sense considering wherever you go, they always seem to be lurking in the dark, waiting for you to drop your leftovers/take out. Mwahaha. 

You may find one scavenging amongst your trash bins, try not to fall in love right away. We understand if you do though. These adorable outlaws are known for their charm and cuteness. These smart and sly animals are also quite brilliant. Give raccoons a puzzle and as long as there's food involved, they will find a way to solve it. This has been proven time and time again both in scientific experiments, as well as in our local trash dumps. There's a reason why they call these guys bandits!
