Criminal tries to steal parrot, gets beatdown from 70-year-old shop owner

After spending more than 35 minutes in this bird shop and chatting with the owner and leaving an address, this inexperienced burglar tried to kidnap a Severe Macaw. The shop owner Lloyd had a hunch that this guy was up to no good, so when he saw him enter the shop for the third time with an open bag, Lloyd reacted fast, eventually crashing the burglar into a parrot cage. However, the burglar still managed to get the bird in the bag so Lloyd did not give up. Lloyd chased him out of the store, tripped him multiple times and knocked him out with the parrot perch all while the poor bird was still in the bag. Lloyd and the bird snatcher battled all the way to the next main street until Lloyd eventually got not only the bird back but the bird snatchers shirt, hat and bag. When Lloyd came back in to the store with all of that, he found out that the bird was alive and doing well. Lloyd is 70 years old and as fit as they come, twice the burglar's age and half the size. The parrot community is crazy about Lloyd's heroism. Lloyd says he did it because he loves the birds and especially Snatch, who now has a great love for Lloyd. Snatch's owner died a few months before he came into the store.

Aussies Were Dumbfounded By This Peculiar Object In The Sky34s

Aussies Were Dumbfounded By This Peculiar Object In The Sky

Humankind loves a good mystery story, so much so that if it comes packaged in a trio of equally spaced lights across the noon sky, we will bend over backwards, guessing if it is a UFO or just some rogue Chinese lanterns. Both amateurs and “professional” conspiracy theorists can’t get enough of sightings like these and sometimes, the grainier, the better! All over the world both regular people and laymen alike have been posting videos of sightings that look too real to diss, but thank goodness for the rest of the Internet, right? There are folk that know their stuff and when they see a clip of a so-called sighting, most of them will jump at the opportunity to dissect that thing bit by sci-fi bit, in an attempt to bring peace in the minds of those who keep asking “is there intelligent life outside of this planet?” Still, with so many mysterious “sightings” out there, so many remain unsolved. Like this particular one. The folks living on the wonderful continent of Australia have been treated with a sight that no one could explain. From afar, the object in the blue sky looks like an aerial banner, but there is one problem - it does not flap in the air current. Not to mention that the thing isn’t connected to anything. From what we could discern from the awful quality of the footage, the object looks long and almost chain-like, like it consists of multiple segments connected to one another. It doesn’t make a sound, doesn’t propel, doesn’t leave a trace in the air. When the camera zooms in further, the object almost looks like it is made from a mesh material. Which got us wondering. What kind of an intelligent life form would make sure a transparent vessel? What kind of a life form would that be? Alien wasps? Anyway, take a look at this (potentially edited) footage filmed in Australia. What do you think it could be?

Camera Captures Strange Flying Object That Might Not Be A Plane

A former B-1 bomber pilot claims he witnessed a UFO over the Arizona desert and says it didn't look anything like an airplane. Blenus Green, a former B-1 bomber pilot who's now a commercial aviator for American Airlines, shared his UFO encounter with the news. Blenus Green and his co-pilot were flying an American Airlines Airbus A321 over Arizona in February when they were told by Albuquerque-based air traffic controllers that a flight ahead of them had reported a flying object not on radar. The controllers asked him to radio them if he saw anything similar. Shortly afterwards, Green saw an object, according to recordings of his conversations with the controllers. "It's American 1095. Yeah, something just passed over us," Green said. "I don't know what it was, but at least two-three thousand feet above us. Yeah, it passed right over the top of us." "Albuquerque Center asked us if we could look and just be on the lookout and see if we see anything, and I'm like 'okay,'" Green said. "So, sure enough, I was looking out the windscreen because I wanted to see if it was there and yeah, I did. I saw it," Green said. Green said that the object "was very bright but it wasn't so bright that you couldn't look at it," and that "it didn't look anything like an airplane." He noticed that the object was bright in areas where the sun was not reflecting off the metal. "Normally, if you have an object and the sun is shining this way, the reflection would be on this side, but this was bright all the way around," he said. "It was so bright that you really couldn't make out what shape it was," Green said. With 20 years of flying experience, much of which was spent as a B-1 Lancer pilot in the US Air Force, Green said he wasn't scared, but fascinated by the flying object.

Watch How This Witty Perp Escapes Police Car Through Garage Doors

It sounds like a scene from some satirical or adventure movie, but trust us on this, this is very much real. One very clever and resourceful perp decide to make a final run for it, after being brought to Porter County jail, when the policemen who brought him for booking left the cruiser door AND the garage door wide open. Sounds too good to be true, but we have the CCTV footage to prove it. A 25-year-old Michael Maldonado made the 100-meter-dash from the garage of Porter County jail in Indiana on Monday, March 26, when he noticed that the jail garage door took its sweet, sweet time closing down. Two squad cars arrived in the garage, one holding Maldonado, and park at the door leading to booking. The officers get out of their vehicles and move away, their backs turned on the perp in custody, knowing that he is safe in the locked car. If you take a closer look at the squad on the left, you may notice it shaking and some ruckus going on inside. A moment later, the driver’s side door opens and out comes Maldonado, shoeless and darting for the exit before the automatic door shuts down. It took the policemen a while to process what was happening. By the time they realized it, their perp was out and free, with a pair of glistening handcuffs to boot. The footage has been watched over 30,000 times in just one day, proving that yes, officers of the law are always comedy gold. The following morning, Porter County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Sgt. Jamie Erow confirmed a statement that Maldonado has been found and brought back into custody.

Police Officers Save Choking Baby Amidst A Busy Intersection1m26s

Police Officers Save Choking Baby Amidst A Busy Intersection

Officers Oklander and Sidders go into action after stopping to help a disabled motorist and quickly realizing a young two-month-old baby had been in trouble. The whole action then turns into a life-saving effort. Incredible police body cam video captures the moments Shaker Heights police officers saved a baby who was choking in a car parked in the middle of a busy intersection. The baby begins to choke while riding in the back seat. Her mom knows she has to get to her daughter quickly, so she stops the car in the middle of the street. She seems kind of frantic and doesn’t really know what to do. The baby starts choking on her milk which is coming out of her nose so she puts the hazards on and gets out of the car and sprints to the back seat to try and help her baby. And it is as if by hand of God two police officers come out of nowhere and help her with the back thrusts for her to breathe. It is a real miracle that the two Shaker Heights police officers just appear out of the blue right at the moment when the baby stops breathing. One of the officers takes the child and places her face down over his forearm, performing a version of the Heimlich maneuver commonly used for infants. After several swift blows to the baby’s back, the officers hear a cough. I can hear air moving,” the officer says. “She’s moving air. Okay, she’s breathing.” Then they pass the baby to the mother, who uses a nasal aspirator on the child. What an amazing job! Thank God for them because, if it wasn't for them, the mom would be probably still be out there doing CPR on her child. And is s a sigh of relief for the officers and for the mother, who knows how lucky she is.

Germans Are Baffled About This Triangular UFO 37s

Germans Are Baffled About This Triangular UFO

We love a good reality TV show, we love a good drama, but what we love most are the unexplained mysteries that keep popping up all around us. Whether it is UFOs or creatures never before seen, it seems like humankind just can’t get enough of a good mystery. All over the world both regular people and conspiracy theorists alike, have been posting videos of sightings that look too real to diss, but thank goodness for the rest of the Internet, right? The Internet is flooded with videos that claim that an unidentified flying object has been spotted in some remote area somewhere. Usually, they are grainy and terribly unfocused, but this one appears to be solid. A bit too solid, in fact. It is really difficult to separate the hoaxes from what could actually be genuine stuff and the advancement of CGI does not make it any easier. Take this clip for example: someone was filming their kid at a jungle gym. The dad asks the kid if he is having fun, to which the kid answer enthusiastically, but then the dad pans out to the sky and does not sound at all surprised. Either he has seen this before or there is something else entirely. Some say this is as genuine as it gets, given the shadows and the movement. Others say that it is precisely how the object in the sky behaves while the camera shifts up and down is a sure telltale that this is as fake as it gets. It walks like a duck, it talks like a duck, but it ain’t no duck. Just to show you how terrible people can be, you have to see this clip that claims it shows an unidentified flying object and alien in Italy. We will let you be the judge of its genuity.

Historic Footage Shows Falcon Heavy's Side Boosters Landing Simultaneously

Space Exploration Technologies Corp., doing business as SpaceX, is a private American aerospace manufacturer and space transport services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California. It was founded in 2002 by entrepreneur Elon Musk with the goal of reducing space transportation costs and enabling the colonization of Mars. SpaceX has since developed the Falcon launch vehicle family and the Dragon spacecraft family, which both currently deliver payloads into Earth orbit. SpaceX's achievements include the first privately funded liquid-propellant rocket to reach orbit, Falcon 1 in 2008, the first privately funded company to successfully launch, orbit, and recover a spacecraft, Dragon in 2010, the first private company to send a spacecraft to the International Space Station, Dragon in 2012, the first propulsive landing for an orbital rocket, Falcon 9 in 2015, and the first reuse of an orbital rocket, Falcon 9 in 2017. As of March 2017, SpaceX has flown ten missions to the International Space Station under a cargo resupply contract. NASA also awarded SpaceX a further development contract in 2011 to develop and demonstrate a human-rated Dragon, which would be used to transport astronauts to the ISS and return them safely to Earth. Footage from SpaceX's first test launch of the Falcon Heavy rocket lift off on Feb. 6, 2018. Shortly afterward, two of its first-stage side boosters separated and landed back at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Gloria. Check out the incredible sight! Credit to 'SpaceX'.

Two Charging Elephants Go In Attack Mode On A Safari Vehicle

A disturbing video has emerged of two elephant attacking a tour vehicle in the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa. Footage opens with a safari vehicle driving in the part, when a group of elephants emerge from a near bush and start walking towards the vehicle. Moments later, two angry-looking elephants start charging towards the vehicle, stomping their heavy feet on the ground, going attack-mode on the unsuspected travelers. Luckily, the man driving the vehicle, was obviously a trained professional and knew how to act in such unfavorable situations so he immediately started smacking his hand on the front of the vehicle, shouting out his lungs! Surprisingly, shortly after, the two angry animals were somehow intimidated by the noise this man was producing and stopped their attack! Watch the chaos unfold as the angry elephants start charging towards the safari vehicle in Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa, determined to attack, obviously disturbed by the visitors intruding in their territory. The driver of the vehicle appears to have recklessly followed the irritated animals and somehow provoked the elephants to start charging at the ‘intruders’. Not only are these elephants angry, but they seem to be very violent too. Remember that elephants are unpredictable and you should always keep your engines running for just in case! A movie can be directed based on this safari encounter, both experienced by the awe of these beautiful, strong animals, and tourists’ urge to change their pants after the unexpected turn of events.

POV Footage Shows Firefighter Catching Child From Burning Building1m13s

POV Footage Shows Firefighter Catching Child From Burning Building

There can be no shred of doubt that you have to be incredibly courageous to be able to work as a firefighter. Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it; these men and women know what is at stake every time they go to a burning building and they still decide to put their lives at risk to save others. But if there are still people out there that still believe firefighting is one of the safest professions today, just show them this video. After watching it, no one will able to convince you out of the fact that firefighters are, in fact, heroes. The footage was released from Dekalb County Fire Department on Monday, January 15, showing a department building caught ablaze. Firefighters are running up and down the street, rushing to rescue everyone in the building before dousing it with water. The whole thing looks like a clip from a biopic; the point-of-view, the clarity of the footage, the severity of the flames, it all looks so surreal. The thing looks like it might just be CGI, for all we know. But then, something happens right before the viewers’ eyes, that will make you snap out into reality. As the firefighters were busy tending to the blazing tongues, tenants from the third floor are climbing down the firefighters’ ladder propped on their balcony. A father is climbing down one of the ladders, with his daughter in his arms. The firefighters are waiting below just in case something happens. And it does happen - the father tosses the 5-year-old daughter down into the arms of the strong hero, waiting on the ground. The firefighter, later identified as Captain Scott Stroup, runs away from the burning building, with the screaming child in his arms, to the EMTs waiting to accept the victims of the fire. To Captain Stroup and to all the firefighters involved, hats off. Credit to 'Dekalb County Fire Rescue Department / Local 1492'.

Hippo Decides To Intervene When He Sees An Antelope In Distress3m49s

Hippo Decides To Intervene When He Sees An Antelope In Distress

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!

Massive Snow Storm Completely Covers Russian City

Now this is definitely something you don't see every day. Check out this amazing footage as user 'vladimir1991' managed to capture a snow storm completely covering the city of Krasnoyarsk, Russia. We have a great view of this massive storm approaching, it is frightening, but also interesting at the same time! These people from Russia are not phased at all by the massive snow storm coming their way. They look like they are very much used to these occurrences. With temperatures reaching as low as -15 Celsius, which is 5 degrees Fahrenheit, and spring warmth arriving as late as the second half of April (can you imagine that?), it is a safe bet to say that this is a normal sight for the people in Krasnoyarsk. However, watching the massive cloud of frozen water vapor, snowflakes and sleet approach the men on the pier, like a torrent out of a Hollywood disaster movie, really makes you thank Mother Nature for letting you live where you do and not in freezing Russia! At least they get to witness a very cool sight! It is quite intimidating watching the storm slowly creep its way closer to the people. You don't want to get stuck in that snow storm! Have you ever seen a storm as eerie looking as this? Let us know in the comment section down below!

Ice storm catches British Columbia city by surprise49s

Ice storm catches British Columbia city by surprise

December 28, 2017 was the start a tough couple days for Abbotsford in British Columbia, Canada. The Greater Vancouver city was hit hard by an unexpected ice storm the evening of the 28th. Although the local weather has been near or just below the freezing mark, the last couple days have been slightly warmer, hovering around zero. Tens of thousands of local residents were without power the following day, Friday, and roads were treacherous. This footage recorded by Dave Johnson shows the damage done to trees and power poles near his home. More than 41,000 BC hydro customers were in the dark Friday after freezing rain coated much of Abbotsford and other nearby towns in a layer of ice. Police and fire departments were urging residents to stay inside and not drive unless absolutely necessary. What a mess Mother Nature dealt out this week!

Carlos Santana Reunites With Homeless Former Band Member2m51s

Carlos Santana Reunites With Homeless Former Band Member

We all had friends back in school days that we shared most of the time with. Going to school together, going out in town or the night clubs, visiting the same places every day. But, as life goes on, we somehow lose our connections with them and end up without seeing them for years. It’s the moment of reconnecting with some of them that bring joy in our lives year after. In one moment we remember all the funny and interesting stuff we did back in the days. Some of us use people we know to find them or some sort of contact from them, while others use the social media to come to information about their old buddies. If you thought reconnecting with your old friends on the social media is awesome, here is a story for you to listen. Thanks to a Bay Area TV-news reporter, Stanley Roberts, the rock and roll legend Carlos Santana has reunited with Marcus “The Magnificent” Malone, who was once a percussionist in his band, but now is a homeless in Oakland, California. While Stanley was doing a story as part of KRON’s "People Behaving Badly" series about a spot in Oakland that has become a haven for illegal dumping, he found Malone rummaging around the trash and discovered that once he had been a member of the Santana Blues Band until he was incarcerated, right before the band’s 1969 debut album was released. After seeing this on the TV, Santana contacted the station to help him find Malone. The moment the two of them saw each other, they embraced, and Santana spoke about how gracious Malone’s family was to the band in the early days. Santana has since offered his assistance in turning Malone’s life around. Fate has its weird turns, so this encounter coincided with Santana reuniting the original band members for a new project, which meant including Malone as well.

NASA Created An Airless Chainmail Tire That Transforms Shape18s

NASA Created An Airless Chainmail Tire That Transforms Shape

Stretch a slinky toy too far, and eventually the metal coil will be warped so much it won’t be able to return to its original spring shape. That’s a problem also faced by the metal spring tires designed to roll across our Moon, and other planets our rovers are exploring. Hopefully NASA has created an alternative tire, made from titanium, that can tackle any terrain and always return to its original tire shape! NASA "reinvented" the wheel with this incredible airless chainmail tire intended to withstand the harsh terrains of a "Martian or lunar environment." This tire is capable of returning to its original shape after deforming all the way down to the axle. NASA Glenn Research Center has just reinvented the wheel, introducing a new tire that can get back to its original shape after having undergone deformation. This invention was perfected thanks to a shape memory alloy based on nickel-titanium. Nasa will use these shape shifting chainmail tires on future rovers to survive the punishing terrains on alien planets. Regardless of how many rocks it rolls over, this super elastic tire will return to its previous shape like nothing happened. Originally created for future Mars missions, NASA researchers believe that this technology has the potential to someday revolutionize earth tires. Whether it's on Earth or on Mars, exploration of any terrain requires mobility which means good tires. In order to avoid flat tire during explorations of alien planets, Nasa has developed this chainmail tire. Its innovative design is made out of an alloy that remembers its original shape after it has rolled over something, removing the risk of dents. How neat! Credit to 'NASA Glenn Research Center'.
