Kami Gregory, who caught the whole thing on camera, had stopped off at a dog friendly establishment in Bend, Oregon. While there, a dog with a ball kept approaching her and others to play fetch. “We’d already been throwing the ball for her for a good ten minutes. She continued to drop the ball in front of us and grab it again when we didn’t touch it for another ten minutes. Then she moved on to other patrons in the growler fill station and would do the exact same thing if they didn’t throw the ball for her,” explained Kami when speaking to Storyful about the dog.

Crowd Gathers on Buenos Aires Streets as Argentinian Lawmakers Move Forward With Abortion Bill45s

Crowd Gathers on Buenos Aires Streets as Argentinian Lawmakers Move Forward With Abortion Bill

Argentina has taken significant steps towards legalizing abortion, after the lower house of its Congress approved an abortion bill by a small margin on Thursday, June 14, in Buenos Aires. Following a marathon debate, 129 lawmakers voted to legalize elective abortions up to 14 weeks of pregnancy, while 125 voted against, and one abstained, La Capital reported. The bill was subsequently sent for approval by the Argentine Senate, the report said. If it is also passed by the Senate, Argentina would become one of the countries in Latin America with the most liberal abortion regimes. This video shows a crowd of campaigners celebrating. Argentina’s parliamentary vote came weeks after Ireland voted overwhelmingly in favor of repealing a constitutional restriction on abortion, paving the way for broader legislation.

Pinto the Koala Released Into Wild After Remarkable Recovery

A koala struck by a car in September, 2017, was released back into wild after making a remarkable recovery thanks to round-the-clock care from veterinarians at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital. The zoo said Pinto the koala was found by the side of a road in Mundoolun, Queensland. “Pinto has been one of our favourite long term patients at Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital because his original injuries were very severe but he had a great fighting spirit,” director of Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital Dr Rosie Booth said. “He had suffered multiple breaks to his arm, a ruptured eye, shock and internal bleeding. To repair Pinto’s arm, we performed surgery that involved inserting a series of surgical pins into the humerus and stabilised it on the outside with surgical clamps. He also had to undergo months of rehabilitation to build up his strength for climbing.” A video released on June 15 chronicled the koala’s road to recovery and ended with his release back into the wild.

She wrote: “We were on that plane for three hours with zero ventilation in super humid weather, with no way to get out, with a bunch of extremely rude cabin crew, and absolutely nobody helping to make the situation better. This was a traumatic experience not only for me and my senior citizen parents but for everyone on that plane.” A spokesman for Singapore Airlines subsequently told Channel NewsAsia that it was investigating the incident. “We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused to our customers on board,” he said.
