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.

Family With 4 Kids, Pet Pig And 3-Legged Dog Rescued From Flood Waters

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.

A three-legged kitten was put up for adoption, and not many people had much home that the feline would find a forever home...

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.

They are also very brave and talented rescuers, being able to climb great heights to assist those in need, be it a human or a helpless animal. The brave men and women in this footage deserve a medal! A cat was stranded on a utility pole, probably after being chased by a dog or other predator and couldn’t get down, so a team of firefighters was called on the scene to help get the kitty down. It is safe to say that the cat was out of it’s mind with terror, being who known how long up there in the scorching sun, hungry and thirsty. Now this strange human comes close and the first thing the cat thinks to get away is walk along the wire! About half way across she loses her footing, but luckily the firefighters were ready with a blanket underneath, to catch the silly kitty as it fell.

Fan Recreates The Butter-Passing Robot From Rick And Morty Sitcom44s

Fan Recreates The Butter-Passing Robot From Rick And Morty Sitcom

This is the moment when one passionate fan of “Rick and Morty” show decided to recreate the butter-passing robot invention and put it into action. Everyone needs a helper in the household and this man used a Cozmo robot and a python script to stage the scene from the show where Rick makes a robot with a sole purpose to "pass butter". In one episode, the adventuring scientist Rick creates a tiny sentient robot for the express purpose of serving butter. “What is my purpose?” it asks shortly after being created, almost pleadingly, to which Rick responds, “You pass butter.” It looks at its tiny claws and moans, “Oh, my god,” before the credits roll. What makes Rick and Morty such an amazing show is all the off-the-wall devices Rick comes up with. One such invention is the robot he makes whose sole purpose is to pass butter which we see in the opening scene of the first season’s ninth episode, “Something Ricked This Way Comes”. Amazingly, the difference between this device and the many other devices depicted in the show, is that in addition to having advanced artificial intelligence and sense of awareness to pass the butter, this robot can be created in real life. Footage demonstrates such creation composed by one inventive fan, the robot is serving the sole purpose of serving butter. Watch how he obeys when the man tells him to pass the butter and the device immediately completes the order. Then again, when asked to pass the butter, the robot has an existential crisis, reassuring that its existence has no meaning beyond that one simple task. How sad is that! Transcript: Beep: What is my purpose? Me: Pass the butter. *Beep passes the butter. Beep: What is my purpose? Me: You pass butter. Beep: Oh my god. Check out "nullstorage" for more!

Students raise money for famine in Somalia after visiting over 700 dorm rooms!

A challenge between Dordt College roommates Jesse Richards and Mark Schussler leads to an attempt to get 25 cents from every dorm room across the campus to go towards helping the needy in Somalia. Influenced by the social media movement "Love Army For Somalia" (which contributes to famine relief in the African country) the two juniors set out to knock on more than 700 doors, only asking for a simple quarter at each visit. In total, the guys managed to raise $253 over a four hour period for the movement. Created on behalf of actor Ben Stiller’s Stiller Foundation, "Love Army For Somalia", the movement actually caught the attention of Turkish Airlines, who provided the foundation with use one of their cargo planes (capable of shipping 60 tons of food) as well as allowance to ship food crates on every commercial flight to Somalia until the end of the famine. The page has received more than $2.5 million in donations, blowing past the lofty goal of $2 million. What an incredible story! Video by Jesse Richards.

Animal Rescuers Climb 18 Feet Down A Cave To Rescue A Litter Of Puppies

Animals depend on human kindness and it is our sacred duty to keep them safe and put them out of harm's way. Puppies, being as fragile as they are, especially depend on our help. These little puppers were stuck 18 feet into the earth, but luckily for them, people with kind hearts managed to rescue them. The mission wasn't easy and not everyone would have bothered, but it's an amazing feeling just to know that you've helped a helpless creature. Kindness sparks kindness in others, so hopefully this will get at least one person to do something kind to continue the chain. This video is in memory of our dear friend and rescuer: Lisa M Ashe. Eldad and his team were called to rescue a litter of young puppies that have been living in a hole in the ground with their mother. The puppies weren’t too eager to trust the humans, so removing and taking them to safety was not a simple challenge. The litter of nine puppies, along with their mother, was rescued one by one from the dark and wet dwelling they were hiding in and each was given a name starting with the letters in Lisa’s name. The five boys and four girls are doing splendidly and are ready for their forever homes . Please share this video and help us save more lives: http://www.HopeForPaws.org
