Saving A Bird Stuck In A Stove Pipe3m14s

Saving A Bird Stuck In A Stove Pipe

It is quite an unfortunate thing, but such things can happen. People have been reporting that small birds, mostly phoebe birds, have been getting inside the pipes of their wood burning stoves and were unable to get out. Usually it is during mating season, when the time comes to make a nest and the nice, covered space under the chimney looks like a good idea. This man has been saving this small birds for several years, almost always in the exact same period of the year. It is a long and tedious process to get the small animal out of there, but the alternative is inhumane. Plus, in the man’s own words: “...it gives me a reason to clean [the stove] out.” So the man grabs his camera, mounts it somewhere safe and away from the bird’s possible flight path, then gets to dismantling the stove pipe. After removing the pipe, we see that the bird is in the wall section of the chimney and is too scared to get out, so the kind man gets outside to bang on the pipe and coax the bird to fly out. The hapless creature takes a few minutes to figure out the shortest way out to freedom, but it eventually flies out! Let this serve as a PSA for all of you who use wood burning stove to check the pipes before the heating season starts!

While these kayakers were travelling on a tour down the River Avon, they heard sounds from a distance and quickly raced to the scene to show their heroic skills in action. A poor sheep has fallen into the waters of River Avon and was pointlessly trying to get out. It was her lucky day to have these brave men come and lend her a helping hand. After noticing the sheep in distress they immediately went on a mission to save her. Two of them were guiding the sheep to swim towards the river shore. The other guy was waited for the sheep to approach and reach land. After successfully guiding the sheep in the right direction, the third man reached out to grab and pull the sheep up. Unfortunately, sheep are heavy and this one is soaking wet. Its weight is pulling down to the river, so this man struggles for a while to pick it up. The sheep is kicking with its legs, trying to get to shore, while the man is pulling it up. After the sheep reached land, it accidentaly dropped back into the water after few seconds. The poor man had to pick up the sheep from the water again, this time successfully carrying it deeper in the land so that she cannot slip into the water again. The second attempt left the sheep happily running away from water, and these men became heroes of the day.

Meet This Mission Impossible Trainer And Get Your Daily Motivation

It is always interesting to ask trainees why they lift weights, their answers usually range from simply wanting to stay in shape to becoming a champion weightlifter, bodybuilder, or a better athlete at another sport. These are all good and noble motives, and it becomes even more interesting when you uncover the intensity of the motivation behind the reason. If you're out looking for some motivation to start working out, all you need is to watch this video featuring a young trainer's dedication. After multiple failed attempts her persistence pays off as she gets stronger and achieves her goal. Watch how this personal trainer spends her days getting seriously sweaty, slowly achieving her goal day by day, as she gets stronger and shapes her body to perfection. Take a look at the way to go encase you lack in motivation and ask yourself: How much do you want it? There seem to be four levels of motivation for weight lifters: First, there are those who lift and work out, but do not train. There are no goals set, or any plans on how best to get there. There is compliance, but no enthusiasm. Secondly, there are these people who have goals and plans. They head to the gym with little enthusiasm but with enough determination to become the best athlete they can be. Thirdly, there are those individuals who think that lifting feels physically and mentally good. The lifter also knows that they are stronger today than yesterday, and will be even stronger tomorrow. Finally, there are those who see lifting as their pathway in life. Some may turn to coaching, but most importantly, they lift in order to know themselves better. These trainees never seem to retire.

Tiny Sloth Rescued From Telephone Pole In Costa Rica3m54s

Tiny Sloth Rescued From Telephone Pole In Costa Rica

Everyone can agree that sloths are one of the most adorable species on Earth. They are furry and toddler-sized and incredibly cuddly. What’s not to love about that? If they were rated by huggability, they would win the first prize every time. Apart from sleeping for long hours of the day, sloths are in constant need to wrap themselves around something. Their need to constrict the life out of the thing they are hugging can sometimes get them into a whole lot of trouble. This is the case with this little sloth that mistook a grey concrete telephone pole for a tree. The firefighters called to help on this case had a lot of fun prying this little cuddler away from a telephone pole near the Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica. It had a lot of fun wrapping itself around the telephone pole, and then once again around the ladder the firefighters used to help get him down. Wriggling his claws one by one, the helpers couldn’t get it to loosen its hold on the ladder, which is only understandable because this little guy was terrified and seeking comfort. Lucky for him, it was extracted and led to the wilderness, where he can roam around the giant trees, and of course, sleep his days away. So precious!

Kind Golfer Rescues Helpless Hawk Stuck In Tree9s

Kind Golfer Rescues Helpless Hawk Stuck In Tree

Nature is so full of wonders and extremely unpredictable, that we should no longer be surprised when we encounter something strange. The strange thing we’re talking about in this case is a hawk that got stuck in between the branches of a tree in the Foxtail Golf Course in Rohnert Park, CA. It’s not very often that we see this predator being so helpless. Its usual to see them soaring through the sky on the lookout for their prey. So if you were wondering how it got stuck in there in the first place, the safest bet would be to say that it probably wanted to prey on a small animal hunched on that tree, but instead it became a prey to those tree branches. However, a stroke of great luck hit this birdie when two golfers on the golf course heard its cries for help and decided to free it from the constraints. It was an act of kindness and a great deal of courage since even big humans can sometimes be afraid of small predators like this hawk. Thankfully, after a bit of wiggling its little body through the tree branches, they managed to get the bird out of the tree, and it flew out in the open, ready to soar through the skies once again.

When disaster strikes, the compassion shown by random strangers is what makes us believe that a better tomorrow is coming. Tropical Storm Harvey has been ravaging Texas for almost a month and with Hurricane Irma on the horizon, it is stories like this one that brings faith in humanity back. No one anticipated the water to rise so quickly and ferociously as it did in Lisa Eicher’s house. So when she called the firefighters’, her plea was a mouthful. "We've got two kids with Down syndrome, a three-legged dog, and a pig — all of whom will be freaked out." said the mother on the phone. The family moved their pet pig Penny to the garage, since her pen had already started flooding, but when the firefighters arrived, they had to get the entire family out and that meant Penny too. Rescuing the family’s dog was a simple enough job, but they just couldn't leave her behind. The Eichers have had Penny since she was an eight-week-old piglet, a gift for their daughter Ace for Valentine’s Day. Now she is part of the family. The team of firefighters took the entire family to a higher ground where they could shelter from the pouring rain, where perfect strangers offered their help. Lisa posted a story on her Instagram with Penny the pig and it has been shared more than 16,000 times on Facebook.

This Video Of Sea Turtle Being Released From Fishing Net Has A True Happy Ending

Most of us would stop dead in our tracks whenever we find an animal in distress on the street, jumping at the first opportunity to help them. Dogs and cats get in all sorts of trouble all the time, but one can also find some unusual animals on the road as well, like emus on the street in Israel or kangaroos in Australia. These animals are native to those countries, so you might call them a mundane occurrence. But would you help a marine animal in trouble? These people encountered an entangled sea turtle while heading to the Marietas Islands National Park located near Punta Mita and Puerto Vallarta in the Banderas Bay area, Mexico. The turtle was wrapped around fishing net that already had two dead birds trapped in it. Dive Instructor Christian H. Hauser approached the scene on Captain Yeyo's boat, the “Mama Juana”, jumped into the water with a pocket knife, swam to the turtle and gently started cutting the net. After a couple of minutes, the turtle was successfully rescued and was able to swim freely! Sea turtles face a number of threats out in the open and irresponsible throwing of fishing nets is one of them, but thanks to good people, these marine animals get a second chance at a good life. People in Indonesia found another massive sea turtle wrapped in a fish net and rushed against the clock to release the animal back to its natural habitat.

Family documents inspiring baby sparrow rescue1m39s

Family documents inspiring baby sparrow rescue

A juvenile sparrow showed up hungry and aggressively begging for food. These loving people fed him and helped him for a couple of days before he went on his way. Awesome! The family housed the little bird in a box overnight, to keep him away from predators and fed him some hamburger. The timid bird looked quite at ease with the human, seeing how it sits on the palm of the man's hand and chirps. The birdie felt better the next day so they let him go, but he came back for some more food for two days after. He would just casually sit on the box he was housed in and waited for the humans to hand feed him some bread. The young fledgling kept coming to his human rescuers' house, probably feeling quite at home, but here are a few things you should know, if you ever do come across a fallen bird. First, make sure that it is actually an orphan. If you find the bird under a tree and it has no feathers, then it is a nestling and it probably fell from the tree you found it under; check for a nest. If it does have feathers on it, then it is a juvenile fledgling and you should leave it there, unless you fear predators, in which case just perch it on a branch to be safe. Taking care of a wild bird is a tedious task, one better taken care of by a professional. So in case you do find a fallen or injured bird, make sure to bring it to your local wildlife shelter.
