Crippled Sea Turtle gets released back into the ocean

This juvenile Green Sea Turtle was found at the beach and had to be rescued and rehabilitated. It is missing a flipper, but Green Turtles are very resilient, and with a lot of care from biologists and veterinarians, it was able to be returned to the ocean, as it can still swim, but because it has difficulty walking on the sand, it had to be released directly into the ocean, where it can swim just fine, in spite of the missing member. What a lovely happy ending! The Green Turtle is one of the seven species of sea turtles recognized today, along with the Loggerhead, the Hawksbill, the Leatherback, the Olive Ridley, the Kemp's Ridley and the Flatback. An 8th species has been suggested, the Black Sea Turtle, which presents a dark color and domed carapace, as well as smaller adult size than the Green Turtle, and extreme caudal dimorphism, but it is still consider too genetically similar to the Green Turtle to be considered a separate species; it is more accepted as a subspecies, and sometimes even just a different population. Contrary to popular belief, the Green Turtle is not named after its color, but for the green coloration of its fat. Their carapace color actually varies from pale to very dark green, plain to brilliant yellow, or even brown and green with radiating stripes. The plastron varies from white to yellowish in the Atlantic Ocean, and from dark grey to bluish-green in the Pacific Ocean. The hatchlings are dark-brown above with white underneath and on the margins of the flippers. They are the only species of sea turtle that are strictly herbivorous as adults, and eat mostly sea grass and algae once they reach 8 to 10 inches in length.

Injured bald eagle set free after rehabilitation 52s

Injured bald eagle set free after rehabilitation

The tiny Fraser Valley community of Harrison Mills is preparing to host thousands of visiting bald eagles in the world’s largest gathering of nature’s foremost dead-salmon connoisseurs. The area’s 600 mating pairs could possibly be joined by over 35,000 migratory eagles this coming winter. Annually as many as 15,000 of those birds regularly visit Harrison Mills through the winter and this exciting viewing season kicks off November 17th with the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival. With the huge number of spawning salmon in this area, of course there is a very plentiful food source for these beautiful birds. The area has many walking trails that are very close to the local creeks and rivers that the salmon venture through. These trails allow excellent access to tourists and locals to see these majestic birds or prey in their natural habitat. Bird watchers and photographers gather in numbers to take in this short lived opportunity. As the weather in northern B.C. gets colder, up to 500 eagles a day will flow into the Harrison Mills area, like they did during a cold snap in October. More than 2,000 are already in the area. A local organization known as the Hancock Wildlife Foundation are the ones that care for injured birds and then gather in November to release these rehabilitated birds back into their environment. Established by DAVID HANCOCK in 2006 to broaden his at that time more than 60 years of lecturing and teaching about wildlife and conservation, especially bald eagles. The organization also has a number of webcams active that anyone can log into via the web to see just how the eagles and possibly their young are coming along through the season. Eagles are such beautiful, graceful and amazing birds, they deserve to be helped along their way.

Thirsty mockingbird follows man to beg for drink of water38s

Thirsty mockingbird follows man to beg for drink of water

On a small island, near the equator, animals have adapted to life with almost no access to water. They are able to drink when there is enough rain to form small pools, but they may go weeks without the opportunity. This mockingbird was thirsty enough and smart enough to follow a backpacker on his tour of the island. Having no apparent fear of humans, he hopped along on the ground beside the man. When the man stopped walking, the tiny bird looked up at him hopefully. This continued for several minutes until the man realized that the bird was actually asking for help. The man bent down slowly and the bird stood staring. It is highly recommended that humans don't interfere with animals on these islands and it is important to not feed them, but the pleading eyes of the little bird were hard to resist. As he began to understand that the bird was looking for help, he guessed that it may be struggling to find water during what was a particularly long dry spell. With a video camera running, the man poured water onto a rock with a small depression. He recorded the bird's reaction. At first, the thirsty little fellow pecked at the drops on the edge of the bottle. Then he slurped some of the water from the rock. But lava rocks are porous and this dark rock was very hot. The water did not remain in the hole very long and the bird didn't get much of a drink. As the man started to pour more, the bird had figured out that the water in the bottle was good to drink and he stuck his little beak right in to get it. Standing taller to reach the bottle, he took several slurps and swallowed. He stood within two feet of the man the entire time. After the bird had sipped on the water for a few minutes, he stood looking at the man quietly. The man continued on his way and the bird stood on the trail and stared after him. Obviously content, he no longer followed the man. This mockingbird is a rare species that exists only on two small islands. Typically, they eat insects, small crustaceans and eggs of other birds. It is a difficult thing to see an animal asking for help but to not respond. It is especially difficult when the animal seems to be suffering from thirst.

The chase later turns onto St. Peter Street, passing a Lucky Dog cart and a voodoo shop, and then onto Royal Street, before Scanlan and other officers capture 30-year-old Terrell Spears in the 600 block of Royal. Spears was booked with possession of a firearm by a felon and flight from an officer. Credit: New Orleans Police & Justice Foundation

Loyal Dog Helps Paralyzed Owner Push His Wheelchair

A helping hand is always welcome, or should we say a helping paw in this case? Watch this cute clever dog going on a casual stroll with his owner, and even helping him push the wheelchair. Man's best friend is on display in its purest form as a dog loyally follows its owner in this inspirational clip. Good doggy!

Passerby Faith Revilla captured one of Alarcon’s walks with Digong in this adorable clip. Shocked by the unusual encounter, filmmaker couldn’t believe their eyes and thought that such emotional scenes only happen in TV shows. Alarcon has been paralyzed since a motorcycle accident several years ago and his best friend Digong has been helping the man ever since! Revilla decided to film the obedient dog in the act of helping owner with his wheelchair as it is a kind gesture of dog’s loyalty and shows how big their hearts are. We bet this dog is helping Alarcon around the household as much as it is helping him on the streets. Maybe this dog-owner didn’t teach his dog to assist with the pushing of wheelchair and running errands for him, but the obedient four-legged friend picked it up all by himself. He lends a helping hand when it comes to carrying bags from the supermarket, that’s for sure. Talking about dogs running owners’ errands, an adorable video has emerged of a hardworking dog helping owner do the laundry. The obedient pooch is seen loading the washing machine with dirty clothes. Baron is one helpful dog! Watch as he gets to work and helps owner load clothing into the washing machine. Amazing!

If you liked this video, you should take a look at another helpful pooch who likes to mop the living room floor just for fun ! After watching these talented dogs performing household chores, we wish we also had a pooch that would voluntarily help around the house! Unlike these pooches who would gladly help owners around, there are some dogs who cannot stand being around the strange-looking objects in the house . Take for example these two massive dogs who are afraid of the washing machine! Too funny! Usually folks like to ask their own kids for help around the house, because it is important to be an equal member of the union that is a family. Sometimes the kids will do any chore just to have it over with, while other times they will not only gladly accept the request, they will even offer themselves as assistance. But if you have not seen a canine companion offer a helpful paw to their owners, then this is your chance! Does anyone need groceries for the week? This cute little dog loves helping with the groceries and with the bags! Amazing little helper!

Drone in cow pasture discovers life-threatening problem1m33s

Drone in cow pasture discovers life-threatening problem

On a beautiful, sunny day in Millbrook, Ontario, some cows were grazing in a meadow and a few were cooling off in the pond. A drone was filming the farm and capturing footage of the scenery and the animals. The drone operator (Dave) was up a hill beside the farmhouse, half a mile away. He had filmed these cows before and wanted to make a video of the farm, the meadows and of the cows enjoying their huge expanse of pasture. This gorgeous farm provides a life for the cows that is exactly as it should be. They have room to roam and are treated extremely well. Dave was watching his large screen monitor and seeing what the drone was filming in real time. The cows were curious and some of them watched the drone with surprising interest, allowing a close pass around the herd. But something that Dave saw was very unexpected, and very concerning. One of the cows had a strange cluster of white on her nose. Initially, it looked like hair or fur. He brought the drone closer and closer until he could make out what it was. The drone was set on 4K resolution and it clearly showed that there were porcupine quills sticking out of the poor cow's snout. There appeared to be dozens of them. Dave brought the drone back and popped the SD card from the drone into his laptop computer. Zooming in on the image confirmed without a doubt that there were dozens of quills in the snout of the cow. She had to be feeling very uncomfortable with all those quills and eating must have been challenging for her. Dave could even see on the ear tag that the cow was named "Linda". Dave told the farmer what he had seen. Quills work their way into an animal and migrate to inner organs in some cases and can cause death. They can also become severely infected and cause life-threatening illness. They do not fall out on their own. Contrary to the popular myth, North American porcupines cannot shoot their quills. They swing their back ends abruptly at animals that come too close. The result is that the quills jab into the animal that seems to be a threat, and the quills detach from the porcupine. The cow must have tried to sniff the porcupine, and her curiosity must have appeared as aggression to the frightened creature. Porcupines are not aggressive and it takes a long time for them to grow their quills. They do not have any desire to waste them unless they feel they are in danger. It is also a myth that the quills should be cut before being pulled. This doesn't do anything to make removal easier. The farmer coaxed Linda into a pen where her head could be held still. He gave her a local anesthetic and waited until the quills could be pulled painlessly. He also applied an antibiotic to prevent infection. She was even given a big serving of oats and corn, her favorite treat. Linda was brought back to the meadow and she quickly joined her newborn calf. The next day, she was grazing happily and was feeling no after effects from her encounter with the porcupine. Linda is part of the same herd as Flo and "Sparky" the newborn calf that was born at the edge of this pasture. He slid under the electric fence moments after birth and couldn't get back in to his mother, Flo. Flo and Sparky became famous after the video of his rescue went viral. Dave filmed as he pushed Sparky back through the fence. It was this incident that prompted Dave to return to the farm with his drone for more footage, and ultimately led to the prompt discovery of Linda’s problem.

Man Explains Why Pets Mean So Much To Those Who Are Homeless3m11s

Man Explains Why Pets Mean So Much To Those Who Are Homeless

James has been living without a home for four years. In that time he has relied on his dog, Envy, for love, protection, warmth, and companionship. She is not only his dog, she is his best friend and family. His relationship with her has been more stable and consistent than any other relationship he has had for a long time. James is one of a staggering 6,000 homeless people who survive on the streets of Toronto. At least 300 of these people care for pets. Their bonds with their animal companions is profound and they will often go without food, sacrificing their own needs to meet the needs of their pets. Paw it Forward is an organization that understands this bond and they know that the relationship between homeless people and their pets runs deep . They also understand the challenges of pet ownership on the streets. Volunteers, supported by Paw it Forward and VCA Animal Hospitals took to the streets of Toronto one very cold night to deliver pet food, gift cards, and comfort items to those in need of help. What they discovered that night was something that they didn't all quite expect. These volunteers spoke to the people and heard their stories and their challenges and listened to them explain the difficulties of making a life on the city streets. James explained that mental illness and being victims of abuse is a common thread among the homeless. He talked from the heart about what his dog, Envy, means to him and how she changed his life. He said that he is much safer since he got her and that she is more than family to him. Anne talked with pride about how she rescued her dog, Lucky, who is 11 years old. Cory lovingly spoke about his wonderfully intelligent dog, Molly, and what a great companion she is for him. Spero and Charles shared their concern about how the streets are dangerous in ways that we might not fully appreciate. "At night,it's never safe". Holly and Berry are two affectionate cats who are adored by their owner, a person wishing to remain unnamed, but who says the cats are a bright spot in very difficult times. The volunteers walked the streets and visited shelters to meet the folks in this video. What they learned was that Toronto, like most major cities, has more homeless people than most of us realize, and that each one of these people has a face and a story. Each one also has a heart full of love for the pets that they care for. Most pet owners feel a profound bond with their animals, but for those living on the streets, relationships with other people can be difficult to find and the relationship with their pet can take on an even more crucial role in their lives. For some, it is all that they have. All proceeds from this video will be provided to James and Envy and Paw it Forward. Please share the link. Support for James and Paw it Forward can also be provided directly through David at mojo_videos@hotmail.com

Three Legged Sea Turtle Thrives Despite Amputated Flipper44s

Three Legged Sea Turtle Thrives Despite Amputated Flipper

This massive Green Sea Turtle lives in the waters surrounding Akumal, Mexico. Translated from Mayan, Akumal literally means 'Place of the Turtles'. It is here that an unusually large number of sea turtles come to feed, mate and nest. Despite the haven that Akumal provides, sea turtle populations worldwide are declining at a staggering rate. This turtle was found lying on the coral reef in 50 feet of water right out in front of one of the region's largest sea grass beds. The turtles feast on the vegetation and then swim out to deeper waters to rest on the bottom for as long as 30 minutes at a time. They will then surface for a few breaths of air before before returning to find a crevice on the ocean floor to rest some more. This sea turtle is missing most of her front, left flipper, an injury that will greatly affect her ability to swim and possibly her ability to crawl up on the beach during nesting season. There are many possible reasons that the turtle is missing a limb. They are often injured when struck by boat propellers. They are also commonly preyed upon by Caribbean Reef Sharks and Hammerhead Sharks . One might expect that such an injury would be fatal to the turtle, but it appears to have healed well and the turtle still appears to be thriving in spite of it. Mexico is one of many places that have started implementing crucial conservation measures to limit habitat destruction and lessen the impact of humans on their wildlife. Nesting areas are being protected and the importance of their survival is being more widely recognized. If we don't protect our reefs and the creatures that depend on them, the health of our oceans and our entire planet will suffer.

Man frees toad trapped in mouth of dead snake

***WARNING: This might be too gross for the little ones to see!*** Mark and his mother went out for a hike in Centennial Park, and on the way back they found a dead garter snake about a foot out in the water, with a toad in its mouth. It appeared as if the snake had attacked the toad, and the toad was close enough to water to make one last desperate bid for freedom, and managed to drown the snake in the process. They found the toad floating on the surface of the water, with this snake's tail (about 1.5 feet long) trailing down through the water and resting on the bottom of the riverbed. THE SNAKE WAS ALREADY DEAD, but the toad looked like it was still moving, and maybe Mark had a chance to save it!

Hippo Decides To Intervene When He Sees An Antelope In Distress

Nature is astonishing. There is just so much it can offer, from the most breathtaking scenery to the most vicious predators. Animals are beautiful and wonderful beings, but we often underestimate them. We see them as far more natural than anything else. In addition to their beauty, animals and nature can be scary. Whether at home, at the zoo or in nature, nobody is immune to a good scare by someone below us on the food chain. You never know when you’re going to meet a new friend when in need. Life has a strange way of giving us support and showing us that we are not alone when we least expect it. There have been numerous cases of discovering who is friend and who is foe, and it might take us by complete surprise. Unfortunately, many people find that the ones we thought of as friends were actually the ones to turn their backs, and a random stranger on the street was willing to give both hands to help us up. Life in nature isn’t that much different. Although unlikely, we’ve seen it a few times, mortal enemies becoming best friends in the face of danger and being joined at the hip from that point in time. It seems that animals too have the same sense of right and wrong and good and bad as we do. Just look at this footage, and you’ll understand what we’re talking about. Photographer Vadim Onishchenko captured this incredibly rare moment while on a photo safari on the Mara River in Kenya. After a crocodile had caught a gnu (a type of antelope) crossing the river, a group of hippos observing the scene quickly made their way over, with one hippo in particular scaring off the crocodile. The situation became even more amazing after that same hippo escorted the gnu back to shore! Have you ever seen a hippo enjoying drinking tea ? Watch the video and you will meet Jessica, the only hippo in the world that loves drinking tea and that enjoys the occasional kiss on the nose. This wild animal jumps out of the water onto a platform, ready and waiting for her favorite drink of tea given to her by human admirers. Amazingly enough Jessica only allows woman and children to feed her tea and to give her a kiss. Once she finished four liters of tea, Jessica adorably became very lazy and literally struggled to keep her eyes open. She slowly went back into the water with only her head resting on the platform where she fell asleep for a short while. Once the show was over, Jessica got her energy back and moved down to river on her way back to the wild hippos. What did you think of this video? Have you ever seen something like this before? We would love to hear what you think so please do not hesitate to leave a comment down in the comments section. Please share this video with your family and friends as it is sure to interest them!

Just when we think we have seen the worst possible scenario when it comes to abandoning one’s pet, a story like Blackie’s comes along that bring tears to people’s eyes; that includes the volunteers and shelter staff at Carson Animal Care in Gardena, California. A family surrendered Blackie, an elderly Welsh Corgi mix dog about 10 years of age, partially wrapped in a garbage bag and placed in a cardboard box. The heartless humans claimed that Blackie had a tumor that was bleeding profusely, yet when they were offered medical assistance, they refused it. Instead, the people just left poor old Blackie with the shelter. When they released a video of Blackie online, a senior dog rescue group from San Diego named Frosted Faces Foundation came to pick up Blackie. Despite being left by the only people she knew and loved, Blackie remained a happy dog and finally rid of that nasty tumor on her tail. When executive director of Frosted Faces Foundation Kelly Smíšek picked up Blackie, the dog knew right away she was in loving hands. "She slept for the entire car ride, and when she arrived at FFF, she wanted to sniff everyone and everything," Smíšek said. After receiving a proper bath, a mani-pedi and a hearty meal, the FFF proceeded to find a doctor who will treat Blackie’s tumor, before she is sent to a deserving forever family!

Veterinarians show touching compassion for miracle dog

Rory is a beautiful Golden Retriever with a sad, but uplifting story. He needed expensive surgery and a lot of care. He began life in a northern Ontario community called Big Trout Lake. The town had become unable to care for a growing population of stray dogs and they reached out for help. A massive airlift rescue was carried out and 58 dogs were brought to Peterborough where veterinarians and other volunteers were ready to work a minor miracle with these poor animals. Rory is a beautiful Golden Retriever who was among this group of rescued dogs. He had more than his share of medical trouble. His hip was broken, rendering his hind leg unusable and leaving Rory in tremendous pain. He also had a bullet lodged in his abdomen and a serious parasite problem. Dr. Noble and Dr. Fortune quickly realized from the x-rays that Rory needed the help of a skilled specialist. Dr. Faessen, an orthopedic surgeon, was called to surgically remove a chunk of bone in Rory's hip socket. Dr. Lightbody removed the bullet in his abdomen and even neutered Rory while he was under anesthetic. Rory was treated for parasites and was soon feeling like a new dog. He adopted one of the technicians at Champlain as he began the long process of recovery. This video shows Rory when he arrived and Rory after his miraculous transformation. He now runs joyfully, with barely a limp and his pain is now just a memory. If not for the incredible dedication and compassion of the doctors and staff at Champlain Animal Hospital, Rory would not be the happy dog that he is today. He was literally given a new life and a new chance. Rory is one of the friendliest and most affectionate dogs ever and he is a very deserving soul.
