Decorated War Veteran's Emotional Cuddle With Lions And Cubs

Jim is a highly decorated war hero having served in World War II. He is also known to many as one of the biggest animal lovers who ever lived. He founded the Saint John Ambulance Therapy Dog Movement in Canada and combined his skills with animal behaviour and his tremendous compassion for people who were sick and elderly. He spent decades visiting people in hospital, bringing his furry companions to their bedside for love and affection that had surprising effects on their healing and their emotional well being. He encouraged others to do the same and the movement swept across the country and grew into what it is today. Jim loved animals of all sorts and they loved him back equally. His charisma was undeniable with both animals and people. Watching Jim and seeing how the animals responded to him was truly heart warming. At 92 years of age, Jim was talking to his friends Dave and Kristy one evening and he saw pictures of Dave with a lion cub. He smiled and said he would dearly love to meet a lion but never had. A few weeks later, Jim's wish came true and in an incredible act of generosity, Jim was invited to be the guest of honor at a local wildlife facility. He was welcomed with a very touching thank you for his service and and seated under a tree for what would be a "little surprise". Jim knew that he would be seeing some animals this day but he did not know what was coming. As he sat quietly, two large lions were walked out to where he sat. The first lion sat at Jim's feet, sniffed and licked his cheek and then climbed up an onto him, wrapping its arms around Jim in an embrace that left everyone speechless. True to his fearless nature and unwavering confidence, Jim sat calmly and took it in as if he instantly knew the lion's full intentions. The two hugged for a moment and then the lion lay down on Jim's feet like a massive dog looking for approval and attention. As if this were completely expected, Jim reached down to stroke the lion and he spoke to it gently. His feet completely disappeared under the animal and it sat, enjoying being petted. It yawned and closed its eyes as he caressed it and it appeared that it would fall asleep with Jim. As if this were not an experience enough, Two tiny lion cubs and a tiger cub were brought to meet Jim and he took each in his arms for some more love and cuddling. Jim's eyes were not the only ones with tears as he stroked and kissed the tiny balls of fur for over an hour. One of the lions drifted off to sleep, comfortable on his lap, and everyone watched with wonder and amazement. It was an emotional and breath taking experience for everyone. Reluctantly, Jim gave the lions back and said goodbye to everybody. As he was led away, tears ran down his cheek as Jim smiled and said "This is a day I will never forget". Sadly, Jim passed away a few months after this day. One of his last conversations was about the lions and the generosity of those who made this happen for him. He spoke of the cubs and of the greeting that the larger lion gave him and how he felt a connection with the animals from the very first moment. Those who knew Jim understood how fitting it was for him to have his dream come true after all that he had done for others. He truly dedicated his life to making others' lives better and to bringing the human animal bond to a whole new level. Jim will be missed and always remembered fondly.

Cops Team Up With Kids To Raise Money For Cancer Research 3m26s

Cops Team Up With Kids To Raise Money For Cancer Research

For the past thirteen years, police officers from the Peterborough Police Service, the Ontario Provincial Police, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and the Durham Regional Police Service have joined the Canadian Cancer Society to organize Pedal for Hope. Officers complete a bicycling tour of Peterborough and surrounding areas over a period of three weeks. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness and understanding for local children battling cancer, as well as raise funds to assist in finding a way to manage cancer through pediatric cancer research. Since 2005, the Pedal for Hope tour has raised over 5 million dollars in the Peterborough and Durham areas alone. One of the most amazing aspects of Pedal for Hope is the connection with the kids. Children who battle cancer provide the cops with inspiration and the kids are part of one of Canada's most successful teams. The kids in the schools also connect with police after seeing them in a very different light. Officers are approachable and downright silly and the impact on the children has to be seen to be believed. The kids are the driving force behind Pedal for Hope and it is their work that makes all of this possible. This year's Pedal for Hope cycling tour promises to be an even bigger success. Officers will again make stops along their tour at 50 participating schools. Assemblies will be held that feature presentations to students, head shaving (teachers and officers), education, and fun events. The tour itself begins April 23rd, 2018. More encouraging than the financial success is the rapport that has been built between officers and students. The enthusiasm shown by the students is nothing short of awe-inspiring. These students have organized fundraising events, shaved their heads and collected sponsors. As a result, students have learned that they are able to band together and make a significant difference in the lives of others. When cops, kids, and a great cause all come together, amazing things happen. If you would like to donate and help us help those who battle cancer, please visit www.pedalforhope.com

This Young Hockey Player Breaks Down In Tears During Sweet Locker Room Speech47s

This Young Hockey Player Breaks Down In Tears During Sweet Locker Room Speech

Youth sports are a wonderful way for kids to learn not just the rules of the game, but what it means to truly be a part of a team. Former NHL hockey player Bryan Berard was in the locker room when he witnessed a very special moment. His nephew, nine-year-old Brody Berard, is following in his uncle’s footsteps, playing hockey in their hometown of Woonsocket, Rhode Island. With Brody’s help, the Woonsocket North Stars had just defeated their opponents, the Capitals, in the final game of the season. Emotions were running high as the exhausted players sat in the locker room. Brody raised his hand and said he wanted to say a few words. What happens next will bring you to tears! The wise words spoken by this child come as surprising deep sentiments from such a young kid. “I just want to say that I had a great season with all of you and I just want to say that I love every single one of you like brothers,” Brody says tearfully. As he continues to talk, his voice cracks with emotion. As Brody tells his teammates how much they mean to him, he starts to openly cry. Soon, he’s got his head in his hands and is speaking through barely-contained sobs. It’s clear that he means every word he’s saying about how much he loves his team. “I love this team. I wish we could stay together. I’m just really happy that we beat the Capitals,” he continues. Then he starts to clap, and the rest of the team joins in. One boy comes over to give Brody a hug, and a man’s voice off-camera encourages everyone to get up and give the boy a much-needed pile-on, too. “Give him a hug, everybody. That’s what it’s all about, boys.”

Man Saves Distressed Dolphin Trapped In Heavy Seaweed8m33s

Man Saves Distressed Dolphin Trapped In Heavy Seaweed

There is a multitude of clips in the world wide web where kind-hearted people have gone out of their way to rid a poor wildlife creature out of its misery. Whether it is a hedgehog all caked up in mud or a swan with a broken leg, humans have set their obligations aside to help a hapless creature live another day. Sure, most of us have seen the hedgehogs in our gardens and the swans in the park, but not many of us have been fortunate enough to come across a dolphin in the wild, let alone have the opportunity to rescue it from certain demise. A family out boating in Australia came across a dolphin that got caught up in some seaweed in a sandbar. The poor animal was whistling in distress, having been tangled up in the seaweed for who knows how long. Seeing how the animal is suffering, the man ties himself to a rope with the other end tied up to the boat and get in the chilly water next to the dolphin. Naturally, the poor thing is scared of the human, probably never having been so close to one before. But with a few gentle strokes on the back and dorsal fin, it is like the dolphin understands the man is only here to provide aid. Since the water is only up to just above the man’s knees, we can only imagine how hard it must be for the dolphin to get out of the shoal. The gentle human uses his left hand to push the seaweed away, as he guides the dolphin towards the deeper water. The dolphin still looks a bit confused after the first attempt and returns back to the shallow, but our hero does not give up. Instead, he guides the dolphin one more time, ultimately convincing the mammal which way is home.

Dog Found Chained In A Basement Wants Nothing But Cuddles2m39s

Dog Found Chained In A Basement Wants Nothing But Cuddles

The call came in: "I just bought a house and there is a Pit Bull chained up in the basement. I'm not sure how long it's been down there." A man purchased a house in St. Louis, Missouri and when he went to check out the basement, what he found was heartbreaking on multiple levels. A female Pit Bull dog was down there, chained by the throat. Of course, the new owner’s first reaction was to call Stray Rescue, an organization dedicated to make St. Louis a compassionate city towards animals. They were quick to respond, carrying crates, treats and leashes, because they had no idea what they will find down there. When the rescuers opened the door leading to the basement, the dog’s reaction said it all. Boy, was she happy to see these kind people! She wagged her tail and nearly choked herself on the chain, trying to climb up and into freedom. She didn’t bark, she didn’t bite, but she sure did provide the rescuers a challenge to free her of her restraints. As soon as she felt released, she started jumping up and down, kissing and hugging those who set her free. Later it turned out that a squatter was occupying the property, leaving tons of garbage behind and this poor soul. Nobody knew who this person was or why they decided to leave in such a hurry and leave behind this precious pup. They named her Jumping bean, for obvious reasons. The entire freedom trip to the shelter, she literally jumped all over the rescuers, wagging her tail like there’s no tomorrow and offering her belly for scratches. For a dog that has gone through such a traumatic experience, little Jumping Bean sure has a remarkable spirit. http://www.strayrescue.org/donate

Contractors Dismantle Porch To Rescue Trapped Rabbit34s

Contractors Dismantle Porch To Rescue Trapped Rabbit

Jim and Brian are construction contractors with big hearts for animals. When they were hired for a job at a house near Peterborough, Ontario, they arrived to begin the extension of a porch. What they didn't expect is that they would discover something under the existing section of porch. They could hear a scratching noise and the squeal of a frantic animal. Jim and Brian removed the deck to find an old cold cellar beneath that had been constructed many years before. It now sat unused, but a wild rabbit had fallen into the 6 foot deep hole and was trapped. The rabbit made repeated leaps at the wall and scrambled to claw its way out. The well was too deep for the terrified creature to make the leap to freedom. Rabbits are not known for being aggressive or vicious, but they do have large, razor sharp teeth and are capable of cutting a person's hand to the bone. Jim knew that this rabbit was too panicked to handle. Thinking quickly, he put a ladder down the hole and climbed in with a metal bucket. Brian got out his phone to record the dramatic rescue and he stood above the cold cellar to provide encouragement and moral support for Jim. Jim made several attempts to scoop the rabbit into the bucket but the rabbit wasn't fond of the idea. Jim is no slouch, but he's not nearly as quick as a rabbit on the move and it becomes very entertaining to watch him try to keep up. Eventually, Jim gets the bucket under the rabbit and hoists it high enough to make the leap over the wall. Jim was obviously nervous as the rabbit bounced around in the confined space, narrowly missing his face as it scrambles to keep away from his bucket. His laugh at the end is partially due to the feeling of triumph and partially relief at having not been bitten by the poor creature. Jim is an animal lover and owns a small farm with an assortment of animals. He also feeds wild turkeys and deer on his property. The animals have become so used to Jim that he can walk among them with a feed bucket and they don't bat an eye. He has a real way with animals and will do anything to help a creature in need. Jim and Brian truly are contractors with heart!

Good Samaritans Rescue A Cow Stuck In Muddy Ground

When we see animals in trouble, we instinctively want to help and save them. But, not every animal lets you do your Good Samaritan job. It’s pretty hard to do it, especially if the animal is bigger than you. A heroic act was caught on camera when compassionate men decided to help free a bulky cow stuck in the muddy ground, doomed to die. Faith in humanity is restored! When these construction workers discovered the cow stuck in the mud, extremely exhausted as she had been trying to get out of the troublesome predicament, they immediately decided to lend a helping hand to the trapped animal. A group of Good Samaritans literally pulled together to rescue the stranded cow stuck in mud using a dirt digger. The bulky animal must have plodded into the slushy mud and got quickly sucked in, making it unable to move a muscle and free itself from the doomed situation. These men immediately abandoned their work and went to help, as from experience they know that when animals get stuck in slushy mud they may not survive. So, they got themselves into a sticky situation and tried to rescue the unfortunate cow from the mud. The cow was sinking fast so dozen of men joined forces and tied ropes around its body and legs, before looping them around a digger and lifting the animal to freedom. Upon discovering the trapped animal stuck up to its neck in a muddy puddle, these men decided to turn their hand to conservation. The first thing they did was attaching a rope to the dirt digger and wrapped it around animal’s body and started pulling slowly. At the end the persistent men managed to pull the cow out of the mud with the help of the heavy machine. After hauling it to its feet and belly to the ground with the help of a rope, the lucky animal seems to be relieved and thankful for being out of the scary predicament. Fortunately the rescuers were able to get the entire rescue mission on camera so that we be inspired to lend a helping hand to animals in need!

Brave Fishermen Join Forces To Rescue Beached Dusky Shark

Two men in Florida brave the rough surf and near freezing winter temperatures to save a dusky shark that has beached itself on shore. Faith in humanity restored! Footage has emerged featuring these two fishermen struggling to rescue a dusky shark stranded on a beach. The video shows two men trying to help the beached shark swim back into the water. It is amazing how they pull shark’s tail and try to help the massive mammal to get on its ‘feet’ and swim back into the ocean. We don’t get to hear a lot of stories like this one. Usually when we think of sharks, we think of grizzly marine predators that will bite of our extremities with just a snap of their jaws. But somewhere in the world, there are people that actually try to save these beasts. And why is that? The answer is simple, sharks are a part of the complex marine ecosystem. Their presence in the oceans ensures the survival of other species in that system, making them indispensable in maintaining the balance. There are many organisations around the world that strive to keep the oceans alive, mainly by protecting the marine life. Watch as these men join forces to pull a shark washed ashore back to the sea. Apparently, these men attempted to save the shark by grabbing its tail and trying to move her body closer to the water. It is not often that we see someone risk its life to save the life of a predator. Simple act of kindness to preserve the balance of the marine ecosystem. Hurray!

Baby With Triple X Syndrome Is A Master Of Balance2m35s

Baby With Triple X Syndrome Is A Master Of Balance

Triple X syndrome is also known as trisomy X and 47,XXX, and it's a condition characterized by the presence of an extra X chromosome in each cell of a female. Those affected are often taller than average but in most cases there are no other physical differences and normal fertility. Occasionally there are learning difficulties, decreased muscle tone, seizures, or kidney problems. The condition occurs due to a random event, and is not typically inherited from one generation to another. Treatment may include speech therapy, physical therapy, and counseling. It's not a very common condition and it occurs in about one in every 1,000 female births It is estimated that 90% of those affected are not diagnosed as they either have no or only few symptoms It was first identified in 1959. Miya was born with a few disabilities, but that won't stop her from stunting through life with her dad since she was four-months-old. She was born early, weighing 4 lbs 10 ozs, but despite this syndrome, she loves life, and also loves to balance herself on top of her dad's palm. She's been doing this "stunt" since she was a wee baby, and with the passing of time, her talent has only progressed. How awesome is that? We love a good inspirational story, and this little girl is a true hero in our eyes!

Baby bird rescued from drowning in tank of water52s

Baby bird rescued from drowning in tank of water

Scuba divers returning from a day on the water in Mexico returned to the dive shop and approached the tank where they rinse their scuba gear in fresh water. They were surprised to find that a young bird had somehow fallen into the tank and could not get out. This bird was exhausted and unable to fly. One of the divers reached into the tank and lifted it out gently. The bird struggled and flapped, obviously scared of the human. It did relax when it was finally picked up, but it tried to fly to freedom once it was carried out of the dive shop. The bird was too exhausted and likely too young to get liftoff and it collapsed on the sand a few feet away. The diver picked it up again and put it in a nearby tree, up and away from predators and people. The bird was content to sit on the branch with his wings out slightly, in order to dry off. He allowed a brief approach and the video shows his labored breathing and rapid heartbeat as he recuperates. This poor little fellow had been through quite an ordeal. A bird such as this one does not have waterproof feathers and wings, like a duck or a loon. When they fall into water, their feathers get waterlogged and heavy and they can't float as high on the surface. They are unable to take off in this condition and they flap helplessly until they eventually drown. In this case, everybody was relieved to see that this little guy was going to be okay after a little rest. Usually, non aquatic birds will avoid water tanks. This was the first time that this had happened, but it was clear that the tank would need to be drained when unattended for this reason.

Soldier Surprise Visits Her Little Sister At School

Surprises are always welcome and looked forward to even if they are surprises. We can all agree that surprises are something that all of us enjoy and wish for, but nowadays not all family members can be present for some surprises. Such is the case with families who have loved one in the special forces. We keep them in our thoughts, but no matter how strongly we feel their presence, it still isn't quite the same. One big sister decided that this day is just the right time to come back home from deployment, but first he had to visit a very special someone for a surprise. Her baby sister was out for a band practice at school, testing some new techniques and was completely unaware of the person she is about to see. It's always an emotional moment to witness these surprise homecomings. When she notices big sister coming into the room in her military uniform, she is in disbelief. When the sight finally hits her, she breaks formation mid-play and sprints towards him for a tight, sisterly hug. That is one priceless present. Thank you to all the brave women and men who are out there, protecting and serving our country and providing us with the freedom that we enjoy today. Check out the heart-melting moment that Amber surprises her little sister at her school during band practice. It's a tear-jerker!

Deputies Save Horse Stuck In Pond After Falling Through The Ice42s

Deputies Save Horse Stuck In Pond After Falling Through The Ice

Thanks to one group of very resourceful first responders out from Elbert County, Colorado, a silly old horse is getting his five minutes of fame. If only it were for the right reasons. Seamus the Clydesdale horse fell through the ice at a nearby frozen pond and became stuck in the cold water. It took about 40 minutes for deputies from the Elbert County Sheriff’s Dept. and firefighters from Elizabeth Fire Rescue to pull horse to dry ground. Seamus’s owner, Tracy Corwin-Beckman said that an equine veterinarian named Dale Rice was on had during the rescue and stayed with her horse until the regular vet arrived. “We are so lucky and thankful for the first responders. Without them he would have never made it out,” Tracy said. The clumsy horse struggled to gain his footing after setting his hooves on dry ground, but showed no sign of physical injury. After a restful night in a warm barn, Tracy says that her pal bounced right back. The following day the sheriff’s deputies received a batch of homemade chocolate-chip cookies — along with a thank-you note: “Thanks for pulling my gigantic behind out of the pond – Love Seamus.” Another batch of freshly baked cookies would also be delivered to the fire station, courtesy of Tracy. “It’s the least I can do,” she said. “They saved Seamus’ life.” Credit: Facebook/Elbert County Sheriff
