This Elephant Calf Stuck in the Mud Symbolizes All of Our Struggles

Wild Wings Safaris, a safari tourism business which works in southern and east Africa, has shared an adorable video of a poor young elephant struggling to get the better of some mud. In the video, posted to Facebook and YouTube on November 27, the calf is seen struggling to make its way up a small climb, however after a few efforts from one older elephant (apparently its mother), a “more experienced female” came along to help rescue the youngster from its predicament. The YouTube version of the video had 1,494 views at time of writing. The footage was shared once again, this time as a Facebook video, by Wild Wings Safaris on November 29 and that version had clocked up over 102,000 views by December 1.

Truck Falls Through Frozen Ice on Lake Winnipeg

A truck driving across a frozen Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada, on March 14, took a plunge when the ice gave way beneath it. One of the truck’s two occupants told Storyful “winter driving across the lake used to be safe,” but suggested that in mid-March only ice farther north would be suitable to drive on. The two occupants of the vehicle escaped unharmed, with Global News, reported that the two were uninjured and refused emergency medical services. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police warned people to stay off the ice in this area, as a rapid current running under the frozen water makes it unsafe for crossing. Global News reported the truck was not salvageable and is currently submerged under the ice.

Drone almost swallowed up by Lake Berryessa glory hole

At drone hovers at approximately 1,000 feet above Lake Berryessa and then descends into the famous glory hole and almost gets lost forever. Our guess is that all the water draining into the spillway created a sort of vacuum that made the drone unstable the further it goes down.

Kitten's First Vet Visit

Take Your Cat to the Vet Day - Marmalade's first trip to the vet when he was a kitten… he loved exploring the new space but as you could see wasn't a fan of the vaccinations! … Such a BIG meow from such a tiny kitten! This was literally the day after Marm came into our lives, he had fleas and came from a family who didn't want him… He had two siblings that died during birth and they also lived by feral cats, it wasn't until later that we found out his mom was often let outside to roam free which is almost certainly why Marm is FIV+… Since we rescued Marm his mom has thankfully been spayed! There are more cats than dogs in the U.S. but vet visits for cats are statistically down and it’s a major concern! It's very important to schedule regular check-ups at the vet for your kitties, cats are so good at hiding signs of illness, early detection of any symptoms is invaluable to their health and well being… (and yours!) 10 Tips For EASIER Vet Visits - by Layla Morgan Wilde of Cat Wisdom 101: http://catwisdom101.com/10-tips-for-e...

Woman Finds Strange Caterpillar In Garden

A woman in Spain has stumbled across a strange double-headed creature, and the internet is going crazy. Luján Eroles, 46, was walking at her courtyard when she came across the critter, before she shouted her friends across in horror. The rough skinned creature looked like a serpent with two heads, measured at about 10cm and with skin as passionate as a snake. The creature seemed to blink in one eye, which astonished Luján's friends. It turns out the creature may have been an Elephant Hawk-Moth Caterpillar, known for their horn-like curved spines. **Please contact video@catersnews.com to licence this content** Company Information: Caters Clips is owned and operated by Caters News Agency Ltd, an international multimedia content provider.

Off Duty Lifeguard Saves Two During Interview3m19s

Off Duty Lifeguard Saves Two During Interview

I am a photographer and needed a good interview to help promote a company sponsored beach clean-up for Earth Day. I set up a interview with a friend and local lifeguard, Tim Capra. I asked him to bring his family and some boards to make the interview a little more appealing. The interview started after 7:00 pm (after hours, where there is not a lifeguard on duty). In the middle of the interview, Tim began to focus on a specific spot in the currents and paused during his response to the question. Then, he walks off camera and spots the people he saw in the water were caught in a rip current! Tim took off down the beach to grab one of his boards he brought for an interview prop, and began to paddle out to save a young man and his father from drowning. Tim got them on his board and back to shore. He casually walks back to his family, drys off, and then finishes the interview - classic hero.
