What do you do when you encounter a whale entangled in a net?  Free her, of course.  This video shows some pretty amazing footage of a group of brave people saving a humpback whale--and how the whale repays them.

If you love animals, you will love these unusual, adorable, animal
ornaments
from all over the world, most of them hand-crafted. Some may be your
pets; others, animals you admire from afar. But I suspect that if you

The proposal would have greatly limited fishing in the Ross Sea, home to wildlife including penguins and seals. Supporters had argued for the creation of a sanctuary there for both scientific and conservationist reasons, but other members of the commission had different matters at stake.

I have a pool, but I can't fathom how I would deal with this scenario...

Bears aren't always giant eating machines.  Take this big guy, for example.  He's as mellow, and polite, as a bear can be...
