Moose Put Down After Disrupting Rush Hour Traffic on Ottawa Highway

A moose that wandered onto Highway 417 during the morning commute in Ottawa, Canada, on July 19 was euthanized by officials who determined it had an injured front leg and posed a risk in the heavily trafficked area, according to the Ottawa Sun. The young male was first reported at around 6:15 am on the shoulder of the highway, and was soon surrounded by police and provincial vehicles to shield it from traffic, CBS Ottawa reported. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry told local media that tranquilizing the moose was not an option, due to its size, unpredictability, the heavy traffic in the area, and its injury. The incident caused delays for commuters along Highway 417, also known as the Queensway. Ontario Provincial Police said a stretch of the road was closed for about an hour. The episode also inspired a parody Twitter account, @HighwayMoose, which elicited a response from the Ottawa Police which said: “Your legacy will live on.” Credit: Josh Ginger White via Storyful

Drone Discovers Scottish Climber Feared Dead in Himalayas

A drone was used to find missing 65-year-old Scottish mountaineer Rick Allen on July 10 after he went missing a day earlier in the Himalayas and was presumed dead, the BBC reported. Allen was on an excursion with his climbing partner Sandy Allan and others and fell after a solo attempt on the 8,047m (26,401ft) summit of Broad Peak, the 12th highest mountain in the world, according to Sandy Allan’s blog. He was found on July 10 using a Mavic Pro drone piloted from K2 Base Camp by Polish climber Bartek Bargiel, the brother of the Andrzej Bargiel who is aiming to beat the K2 ascent record and become the first person to ski down the mountain. The video shows the moment Bargiel’s drone discovered Allen on a steep ice cliff. Climbers and Sherpas already on the mountain then found Allen in the evening, brought him down to safety through the darkness, and arrived at Base Camp on July 12, according to Allan’s blog post. “After being examined by a doctor at basecamp, Rick is okay all things considered and has a few superficial cuts and some frostnip,” Allan wrote.

'Subdued and Listless' Baby Orangutan Rescued From Tiny Wooden Cage2m04s

'Subdued and Listless' Baby Orangutan Rescued From Tiny Wooden Cage

An infant orangutan estimated to be around two years of age was rescued from standing in its own feces in a small, wooden cage by International Animal Rescue. Photos and video of the orangutan’s rescue were shared on June 19, and he was described as “subdued and listless, in spite of the commotion surrounding the rescue team’s arrival.” The person keeping the infant in his home claimed he had found the animal alone on the industrial tree plantation in which he worked. He had been feeding the orangutan fruit and condensed milk. The orangutan, named Uka, was given a medical check by the team’s vet before he was cleared to travel back to IAR’s Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre in Ketapang, Borneo. Uka was provided with teddy bears for comfort when he arrived in his new home, and will remain in quarantine for several weeks before he is deemed cleared from any contagious diseases and allowed to socialize with other orangutans his own age. “It seems that Uka is suffering from a flu virus which he may well have caught from the human beings around him. If we hadn’t rescued him when we did, his condition could have deteriorated rapidly and could even have ended in tragedy,” said IAR Chief Executive, Alan Knight OBE.
