Cat burglar: pet kitty filmed stealing neighbour's newspaper

This is the remarkable moment a kitty called Max was finally revealed to be the cat burglar who'd been swiping the neighbours' newspapers. The cat's owner had for a while been coming home to find the local rag on the doorstep of their home in Wainuiomata, New Zealand. "I always thought it was one of my cats by the teeth marks in the paper but last night we got video evidence," Max's owner said. The clip shows Max walking nonchalantly away from the neighbour's property with a tabloid in his mouth. He then leaps over the fence to bring the stolen goods back to his home. So, while the identity of this feline felon may have been revealed, no one has yet established a motive.

Shocking video shows man catching pigeons with net in Florida parking lot

A shocking video has emerged from Florida in the USA which shows a man using a net to catch dozens of wild pigeons in a parking lot before loading the birds into the boot (trunk) of his car. According to the filmer, he was on a fishing trip to Florida with a friend earlier this month when he stopped at some shops in the city of Largo. It's there that they saw the man in the parking lot hiding behind a pole while feeding the pigeons bird seed. "Being avid fishermen that we are, we knew what he was going to do with that net. There sure wasn't any water around," the filmer said. "He captured a couple dozen and loaded them in the trunk of his car as if it was a just a normal thing he does daily," the filmer added. "I truly have no idea why he was doing this but I would think he's either going to eat them, which is called squab, or he will use them to train hunting dogs," the filmer concluded. One online commenter said: "Is this guy seriously going to eat some birds he caught in the parking lot with a f***ing net? So f****d up."

It must be puppy hate! Owner catches kitten after dog nudges it off sofa

What could have been a loving moment between two pets turned sour when a kitten was pushed off a sofa by the family dog. Three kittens which were abandoned by their mother were taken in by the filmer and introduced to the dog.

The owner's knee-jerk reaction caught the little feline before it hit the floor. The filmer said: "This is our dog meeting one of the three kittens for the first time "The kitten’s mother didn’t take care of them, so we got them inside the house and looked after them until they were old enough to be adopted."

Moment lion ambushes lone giraffe by jumping onto its back

This is the moment a lion clambered over the back of a lone giraffe in an attempt to bring the animal down. The footage captured last week (January 18) in Kruger National Park, South Africa shows the giraffe being attacked from below by numerous lions while a more agile female jumps onto its back. After a lengthy chase, the giraffe got away, according to the filmer, a local safari guide. It was "probably one of the best sightings I've had in my career guiding in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve," he said. He explained: "We came across a pride of lions having a bit of a snooze. After a couple of minutes watching the lions some of them finally decided to start moving off. "After following them for a bit we spotted an old giraffe bull, which was unaware that a pride of lions had their eyes set on him After a couple of minutes, which felt like an hour watching these lions, the chase was on. "The adrenaline we had watching this happen was just incredible, having the opportunity to witness this amazing sighting happening in front of our eyes," he added. "We raced in behind the lions, watching them grab the legs and one female jumping on the back of the giraffe trying to throw it off balance. We saw the giraffe run for about 400 meters without the lions on his back, realising how incredibly powerful this animal is. "With some luck, the giraffe was finally able to get the lions off his back and for about five hours the lions tried getting on him again with him just stomping away fighting these lions. "Eventually, the lions gave up very exhausted with the mighty giraffe walking away to live another day."

Kind-hearted man visits hospitals to cheer up patients with his bizarre collection of pets

This animal-loving Good Samaritan has an unusual hobby - he takes his pets out every night to cheer up patients. Bunma Puntrakut, 60, started visiting hospitals 23 years ago with his dog where he would comfort lonely patients. The market trader said he was overwhelmed by the joy that patients received when he turned up to pay them a visit. So he has been performing the same routine for almost two decades - taking his unusual menagerie of pets to temples, funerals, hospital and police stations. Bunma currently has a dog, a duck, a budgie and a toad which he dresses up in bright costumes and flashing lights to ''make people who are feeling sad, smile''. He said: ''I take my pets outside to see people and cheer them up. I do it for hospital patients or for people who are victims of crime. ''I started doing this 23 years ago because I saw some patients nobody cared about, so I went with my pets to make them happy.'' Bunma currently has a 10-year-old pet Aspin dog named Yim, a white duck named Mesuk, a blue budgie named Kalaket and a toad named Napal. He added: ''When people see my animals it makes them relaxed. If they are stressed, they forget their problems and they're happy for a moment. ''I have this remote control which I use as a joke. It looks like I am using it to control the animals like they are a toy. People find it funny and I let them try. ''I will keep doing this for the rest of my life. It's important that everybody helps to make each other happy and cheer up other people in the world.''
