Pet Laws That Should be Stricken From The Books

We’re sure if you’ve been a pet owner for any length of time (dependent on what part of the world you hail from) you’ve probably come across some very bizarre and strange laws pertaining to your furry, scaly or feathered friends. But taking it one step further, the UK pet insurance firm Helpucover has pulled out all  stops in posting some of the most ridiculous laws that may have slipped by you.

Dog Helps Raise Funds For Charity

Alvin is used to doing charity work. He usually visits hospitals and schools, and works with autistic children. For the three Christmases he has also tried his paw at ringing bells to raise money for The Salvation Army. He certainly causes more people to stop than the usual human standing around ringing a bell. Alvin drew quite a crowd at Walmart in Richmond, Indiana, on Friday with his bell ringing skills.

Aggressive Squirrel Clears Playground

While squirrels appear cute and cuddly, they are an animal not to be trifled with. Last week it was reported that the Chater Infants School in Watford, Hertfordshire, England, was faced with an unusually aggressive gray squirrel. Teachers quickly rushed the terrified children back into school to get them away from the pushy rodent.

Parahawking, When Man & Hawk Take To The Skies Together

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.

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.
