Woman spotted with fox resting on her shoulder in crowded Moscow metro station

Among sights not usual to a commute, a woman in Moscow was spotted with a tame fox resting on her shoulder in a packed metro station. The footage, filmed on November 13 in Kashirskaya station, shows the furry companion looking unfazed as its owner boards a train. Other commuters also appear largely uninterested by the sight. The filmer posted the video online with a humorous caption: "There are women in Russia who like wearing real fur, but who are against killing animals." Although such a scene would likely turn heads in the UK or Europe, a Soviet-era selective breeding programme means there is a special set of red foxes in Russia that have been domesticated. As of 2014, Russian officials believe there are up to 2,000 domesticated red foxes still alive.

Bear does a little dance in Kosovo sanctuary

A bear does a little dance against a pole at a sanctuary in Kosovo. The sanctuary is an animal welfare project that supports 19 bears from bad backgrounds, with many having been mistreated after spending long previous stints in captivity. "Now they roam free in a natural habitat and have professional care," said the filmer. "In this video are Roni and Ema, two of the three cubs we found in a private apartment in one of the cities in Kosova." Their mother was unfortunately killed so the sanctuary took them in. "Since then they are the soul and spirit," they said. While the bear appears to be dancing, it is also possible it just had an itchy back.

White public school employee admits using racial slur in parking row

A white public school employee in Maryland admits to using a racial slur during an argument over parking. The filmer approaches the woman as she exits her vehicle, saying, "did you just call my husband the n-word?" "Yeah, I did," the woman, who is a librarian, responds. The filmer then pursues her saying "next time you're going to say it to the wrong person, and they won't be as nice," adding that the clip will be going on the internet. The clip has since racked up more than 150,000 views. "How dare she talk to my husband that way and in front of me and my children," the filmer wrote as she posted the clip. " I thought was so profound is that she was proud of it and didn't try to deny it." The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) released a statement condemning the usage of the slur on Friday. “While we’re glad the school system has placed the employee on leave while this incident is being investigated, it’s disturbing that one of its representatives exhibited such unabashed racist behavior, especially in the presence of children,” said CAIR Director of Maryland Outreach Zainab Chaudry. “We expect that all employees - especially those who may influence curriculum or have direct contact with students - receive appropriate diversity and anti-bias training.”

Amputee sea turtle swims again thanks to new prosthetic fin

This is the heartwarming scene as a disabled sea turtle happily swam for the first time after being given a prosthetic flipper yesterday (November 15).

Prosthetist Kevin Carroll heard the tragic tale and enlisted his team at the Hanger Clinic to build Rocky a special false limb, which he splashed enthusiastically as soon as he took to the water.

Wedding prepper makes balloons stick in place by rubbing them on her brother's head

This is the hilarious moment a girl in China rubbed balloons on her younger brother’s head and then threw them onto the ceiling to make them stick. The video, captured in Zhengzhou City in central Henan Province on October 27, shows a girl rubbing each balloon on her younger brother’s hair before throwing them onto the ceiling. Then the balloons can be seen attaching to the roof and staying there without falling down. The friction from rubbing the balloons caused static attraction, meaning the balloons stayed stuck to the ceiling until the next day. At the end of the video, the girl joked: "This is my younger brother. If anyone needs him, please send me your address, I will pay the postage".

Mum’s emotional tribute a year on from son’s drug-induced death

A year after his death, a mother has shared an emotional video of her son on life support in which she rails against the dealers that sold him the drugs that killed him. Philip Kramer, from New York, passed away on November 6, 2017, after being on life support. He suffered a drug overdose after years of dealing with mental illness and addiction, leading to swelling on the brain. His family made the decision to take him off life support. His mother, Donna DeStefano-Miller, admits he was "in and out of rehab for a good part of his life." On October 27, 2017, Kramer got in touch with his regular drug dealers, according to his mother. He was then found unresponsive by a roommate later that evening. In the emotional video, mom DeStefano-Miller films her son on life support and says: "This is the harsh reality of drugs. This is my son’s [life-support] machines. And there’s my son. So my son decided to do this on his own, but he had a little help from the drug dealers, the same people that refused to respond." She then directly addresses those who sold her son drugs. "So when I ask all of you idiots what did my son take? What did you sell him? Instead of lying you could have done me a favour and called me up anonymously and told me this is what he had in his system. You’re contributing to this. "This is reality, this is what a mother dealing with." "If you ever come out of this, you stay away from them. They’re not your friends." In the video, Kramer can be heard engaging in his very last phone call before his death, as well as playing with his young children. In the phone call, he says: "Hey ma, I’ve cooled down, I’ve just gone to see my friend, I don’t know what else to say. Whenever you’re ready to talk, if you’re still willing to go with me to the grief counselling let me know. I just want to say I’m sorry, I’ve just been annoyed but I do love you and don’t take anything the wrong way. OK, bye." A year on from the father-of-two’s death, his mother shared an emotional tribute on her Facebook profile. It reads: "My heart will always be with you," before thanking friends for their support.
