Parahawking, When Man & Hawk Take To The Skies Together

Parahawking is coming to the U.S. after originating in Pokhara, Nepal. As a new adventure sport, it’s an activity that combines the best of two worlds, namely paragliding and falconry -- where the birds of prey could be vultures, kites, eagles or Harris's hawks.

What Really Happens When Pigs Fly!

If you have always wanted to find out what REALLY happens when pigs fly I can assure you that they don't check out their insurance on their cell phones. On Wednesday a woman boarded a US Airways flight out of Hartford, Connecticut with her pet pot-bellied pig after claiming that it was her mental health service animal. The 70-pound animal waddled onto the flight along with the other passengers.

City In China Terrorized By Buffalo

It wasn't the running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain earlier this week -- it was the running of the water buffalo in Leshan City in the Szechuan Province in China. Unlike Spain this was not a planned event and the citizens there were caught off guard and found themselves running for their lives. The animal's rampage was caught on closed-circuit television and that video has been making its way around the world.

What The Heck Is A Goat Tower?

It is a strange sight to see towering into the air like a part of some medieval castle got lost from the rest and with goats walking up and down on the outside. It is something called a Goat Tower. There are only a few in the world, but they exist as homes and exercise for certain kinds of goats. They have become tourist attractions in their local areas. In South Africa, the one at the Fairview Winery has become a part of an international tourist destination.

Jet And Miri: A Love Story That Is All Wet

There are many odd animal pairings out there and we love them all. None are quite as unusual as Jet and Miri because they are often in over their heads. In a pool that is. Jet the dolphin and Miri the seal are BFFs at the Pet Porpoise Pool in Coff's Harbor, Australia. They were born in the marine park and were introduced to one another when they were just months old. It was love and first sight.

Orphaned Baby Rhino Finds Love With A Sheep

Back in May staffers from the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre in South Africa found a baby rhinoceros crying next to its mother that had been killed by poachers just for her horn. They wanted to give the baby another chance at life and so they took it back to their facility and named him Gerjie, or more commonly Little G. He didn't sleep at all that first night even though they brought Skaap the sheep in to help comfort him.

Dog Hitches Ride On Ambulance To Stay With Owner

Dogs are known for their loyalty to their humans and every now and then they go above and beyond to prove this trait. A beagle-mix named Buddy in Mason, Texas, took loyalty to a whole new level a few weeks ago when his owner was loaded into an ambulance to be taken to the hospital. Part way through the trip it was discovered that Buddy was riding on the back of the ambulance to stay with his human.

World Leaders Sharing Koalty Time Down Under At G20

In the midst all those news stories of blank stares and the resurrection of Cold War tensions between certain world leaders (not naming any names, Obama & Putin), Australians appear to know how to cut through the ice to warm up a party. At the G20 in Brisbane, the country’s Prime Minister and the summit’s host Tony Abbott generated some first hand excitement with his koala diplomacy.

Thula and Iris: A Match Made In Kitty Heaven!

It is a devastating thing to find out that your child is autistic and it is a wonderful blessing when an animal comes into your lives that helps to make your child's life just a little better. For Iris Grace Halmshaw, an amazing 4-year-old artist, this help came in the form of Thula, a Maine Coon cat, who has been able to help her connect with the world outside herself. Thula also helps Iris with her painting.
