Rescued ducklings' beautiful response to being released on a pond

These five adorable little ducklings are only a few days old. They were orphaned and found running around in a parking lot of a motel in Peterborough, Ontario. A kindhearted man named Mike had traveled from British Columbia and was staying at the motel because his company, Mercroft Construction, had been contracted for a big job in Ontario. As he finished work and reached the motel, he saw the ducklings without their mother. He watched them for several hours and there was no sign of the mother. She may have been hit by a car or caught by a predator, but either way, Mike knew the ducklings were in trouble and needed help. He scooped up the five little orphans and put them in his bathtub for the night. He gave them some water and some food but he didn’t know what he was going to do with them. Luckily, he had a friend named Kirk who lived in the area. Kirk introduced Mike to a woman named Lucy Davidson, a kind hearted soul who is well known for her love for animals. She runs the Wagging Tails Pet Retreat but her farm is truly an animal sanctuary for creatures who need more love and care than some people can give. Almost all of her animals are rescues. Lucy has a friend who is a veterinarian. She called Dr. Kristy for help with the ducklings. Birds need to be raised with other wild birds so they learn social and survival skills as well as a healthy fear of humans. Dr. Kristy put the ducklings in her pond while she arranged for them to be taken to the Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre in Napanee, Ontario. The ducklings were thrilled to be set free in the pond for the morning. They splashed and played in the water, diving below, and running across the surface. It was heart warming to see their reaction as they realized that they were being set free on the pond. They had spent the last day in a parking lot, a bathtub, and a box before finally reaching the freedom of the pond. The ducklings also gorged themselves on duckweed and algae. With full bellies, they were placed back in the box for the last time, so that they could be driven to Sandy Pines. Here they will experience even more freedom and top notch care until they are big enough and strong enough to be released into the wild. Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre will ensure that they have the skills that they need to thrive on their own. Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre relies on donations from the public. Please visit their site “sandypineswildlife.org” to seek advice and assistance or to make a donation.

Loving moment between cow and newborn calf will melt your heart1m15s

Loving moment between cow and newborn calf will melt your heart

Cows are among the most gentle animals in the world. Despite their immense size, they are peaceful and sweet in their disposition. They have a soulful face and big, endearing eyes that tug at your heartstrings. Calves are even more beautiful and endearing. Clumsy and playful, they are a joy to watch. Their inquisitiveness is irresistible. This calf is less than one day old. He was born on a sunny spring day on a beautiful farm near Millbrook, Ontario. The cows on this farm roam free on a lush green meadow with rolling hills, a pond for drinking from and trees all around. They have acres of fresh grass and more pasture than they can possibly eat. The farmers are attentive and caring, making sure the cows are as healthy and happy as can be. Iris is an extremely proud and loving mother. Her calf is resting in the long grass, taking a break from nursing and learning to walk and run on his brand new legs. Iris stands over her baby protectively and licks his head and face in the most loving way imaginable. She stops for a moment and her calf looks up at her as if in awe and wonder, waiting for the bath to continue. He's clearly in heaven with all the attention from his mom. Iris goes back to licking her baby and showering him with love. It's heart warming to see a mother so proud and so attentive with a newborn. Cows lick their young to promote bonding, to show affection, and also for grooming. Cleanliness is important for this calf in order to discourage harmful insects and also to remove the smells that would attract the attention of predators. In the first hour after being born, a calf will already be able to walk and even run, but it will take a few weeks for them to gain enough balance and strength to run away from predators. During this time, the mother will not venture farm from her baby. She will always be ready to defend the calf if needed. Even the other cows in the herd will protect the offspring of another cow. They will show affection and provide protection very readily. Watching an interaction like this is not only enough to melt your heart; it is a demonstration of the cow's capacity for emotion and love. We often underestimate this ability in animals, yet it is undeniable if we only open our eyes to see it.
