Tragic case of 'thin and weak' elephant performing circus tricks to empty zoo in Thailand

Harrowing footage shows an apparently underweight elephant performing tricks inside an empty zoo. The adult female elephant with long white tusks was performing in front of a virtually deserted stand at a crocodile farm attraction. With its bones visible, the "cow" can be seen balancing on two wooden tables before being led down and then walking across a metal tightrope. It pauses in the middle, turns around and walks back. The skeletal frame of the Asian elephant - with its pelvis and shoulder poking through its saggy leathery skin - raised concerns from one visitor who was attending the Samutprakarn Crocodile Farm and Zoo. The filmer, who wished to remain anonymous, said: ''I've been visiting the zoo for a long time because I like to look at the animals. But when I visited last week I was upset when I saw one of the elephants. The elephant looked so thin and weak. I felt so sorry for him. I think he needs help. I don't want to say anything bad about the zoo, because they might be problems and cannot afford to look after the elephant. I would like people to help the elephant.'' A spokesman for the zoo said that all the elephants are ''good.'' They said: ''The elephants here are all healthy. They are all good. None of them are thin. They are all fed well. They do shows every day.''

Snake slithers into police station and leaps up at man in waiting room1m38s

Snake slithers into police station and leaps up at man in waiting room

This is the moment a snake slithers into a police station - leaping up at a visitor sitting in the waiting room. The man was reporting an incident at the station in northern Thailand, on Saturday afternoon (December 8) when the serpent scaled an uphill disabled ramp - then slid in through the open front door. The dark black rat snake glided over to the man - who glanced down when it was just a few inches from him. The pair both panicked, and the snake reared up and jumped at the legs of the victim. CCTV cameras from the station captured the incredible scene as the man, Apichat Cheautong, 45, began frantically stomping at the 6ft-long aggressive reptile, which even wrapped itself around its victim's ankles. Apichat eventually managed to grasp the snake by its head and its tail as an officer walked out to the front desk after hearing the commotion. Hilariously, Apichat even offered the policeman the snake - who flinched with fright and quickly waved him away towards the front door, where the snake was released into bushes on the other side of the car park. Police Private Pung Puapan Suan, the officer in the video, said today that he was shocked when Apichat approached him with the reptile. He said: ''The man was trying to give it to me. I said, 'No, no, don't come here, take it outside.' ''He thought that I could help him with it. I've never picked up a snake before. I'm scared of them. I followed him outside and he put the snake in some bushes in the car park.''

Oh deer! Unexpected guest breaks into school in northern India1m09s

Oh deer! Unexpected guest breaks into school in northern India

An adult Sambar deer, trapped inside the toilet of Government School, Boileauganj, was rescued by a team of Wildlife wing of the forest department on Thursday morning (December 3). The adult sambar deer strayed into the school campus and was detected inside the school by staff and students. “A rescue team tranquilised the deer and shifted it to the Him Kufri Nature Park near here,” said Rajesh Kumar, DFO, Shimla. It was with great difficulty that the 12-member team managed to tranquilise the deer and rescue it as it was very scared and was resisting all help. “The deer was very scared due to presence of large number of people, including children, around it. Moreover, it had injury marks on its back and neck, which were probably sustained while the animal struggled to find his way out. It took almost three hours for the team to shift the animal weighing about 90-100 kg,'' said forest officials. The biggest problem faced by the team was due to the fact that the sambar’s feet were slipping on the ceramic tiles in the washroom of the school, an unfamiliar texture for the animal. It is common in winters for wild animals, including leopards to stray into inhabited areas from the adjoining forests. DFO Sharma said the animal would be taken care of at the Kufri Nature Park and only after it is found to be completely healed that it would be released into the forest.

UK boy cheats death TWICE after being hit by learner driver into path of onrushing car1m04s

UK boy cheats death TWICE after being hit by learner driver into path of onrushing car

A child miraculously escaped with only minor injuries after running in front of a learner driver and being hit and sent flying into the path of another car in Nottingham in central England. Shocking dash-cam footage captured yesterday afternoon (December 7) shows the moment the learner driver's car hits the young boy, who had suddenly run out across a set of traffic lights, which were green for vehicles. In the clip, the learner driver approaches the crossing with others, who wait. All of a sudden, the boy darts across the road, leaving no time for the learner driver and the driving instructor to brake. The car hits the boy who rolls over the hood of the vehicle before cartwheeling onto the next lane, dangerously into the path of an overtaking black Audi. The Audi - which doesn't stop - dodges the boy rolling across the road. The boy is able to spring back to his feet seemingly unharmed. ‘’I was guiding the learner driver back to finish up her lesson," said the driving instructor. "We were running a little behind time, heading back along Western Boulevard at 3.30pm we were less than a few minutes from parking up when this happened. ‘’A family approached the crossing when their child runs from behind them, hidden behind a tree from us. Before we know it he is in the road, the brakes are on hard and ... silence. The few seconds it took for this to happen felt like a lifetime as the child rolled over the front of my car and back into the road, narrowly avoided by a black Audi overtaking us,'' he added. The learner driver "not even close to the 40mph speed limit," the instructor said. ‘’Thankfully, an ambulance was not far behind us and was quick to assist the child, who had suffered apparently very little injury from this. Within minutes another ambulance and a fast response medic were on scene helping the child.’’ "The most amazing part of this story though, for me, is the learner driver I was teaching. Being a medical student herself, she was in her element with the paramedics, tending to the child while he was prepped for the ambulance and taken away to be checked over. ''The incident has been referred to the police also, who just happened to be passing by within a few minutes of this happening too. It seems like everything was in this little guy's favour when this happened, and to my knowledge, he won't have much recovering to do this weekend.'' The incident took place on December 7.

These ambulances may look like coffins, but they are offering a lifeline to many patients in India. Patients in tribal areas of Andhra Pradesh can call 108 and summon a bike ambulance immediately. These areas are remote, have poor roads and cannot be easily accessed by regular ambulances. The motorcycle-ambulances come with a stretcher and a safety guard. They are also equipped with first aid kits. These unusual ambulances provide emergency care, shifting patients to nearby hospitals. The residents in remote areas say the motorcycle-ambulance services are much faster than regular ambulance services. With the service getting a good response, the state government plans to increase the number of bike ambulances from the present 122.

Reckless man risks his life by dragging injured leopard to roadside

A leopard was injured after it was hit by an unidentified vehicle in Yavatmal, Maharashtra, India on December 3. Unable to move, the leopard was found lying in the middle of a busy road. As the vehicles stopped on the road waiting for a rescue team to arrive, a man stepped in to clear the traffic. He grabbed a leg of the injured animal with his bare hands and dragged it to the side of the road. He then stepped away quickly as the leopard growled and tried to attack him. A rescue squad reached the spot after a while and took away the animal for treatment. A forest official said the leopard had suffered a fracture in two of its limbs.

Mother and baby pangolin taste freedom after being rescued from poachers

This is a heartwarming video of a rescued mom and baby pangolin enjoying their freedom after a long confinement. Four poachers had caught the seven-year-old mother and her eight-month-old baby in a forest in Odisha, India. They had confined the animals in a small wooden box for a long time as they tried to find a buyer for the endangered animals. After getting information about poachers, Odisha police sent Wildlife staffer Subhendu Mallik to act as a decoy customer. As the poachers negotiated with Mallik to sell the animals for 22 lakhs (24,000 GBP), a special task force of Odisha police raided the spot and rescued the two pangolins. They also arrested the four poachers. The rescue team was pleasantly surprised to see the pangolins enjoying their freedom and moving around in curiosity. The mother pangolin even broke free while they were being transported and got too close to the driver for his comfort. The scared man stopped the car and got off as the mother went around the steering wheel. Senior police officer Dr. Satyajit Nayak, said: “We are investigating the case to see if there are any international links to the illegal trade.” "We are very happy we saved the mother and baby from a gruelling death," said Mallik. The animals have been sent to Nandankanan zoo for further care. Pangolin, the world’s most poached animal, is illegally sold for its scales, meat and bones.
