I like to see and post heartwarming videos of the good acts humans do to/for animals and here is one such act. After a junior great white shark got stranded on a beach in Chatham, Massachusetts members of the public splashed water on it to keep it wet and alive before it was towed back to sea and released to swim another day (source: BBC).

Warning: the video might get you a little upset at the beginning and a little teary-eyed too.

The video is in a spoiler as the still picture on the youtube video isnt pleasant at all. It does get so much better if you watch the clip. apple01

Speaking of heartwarming acts toward animals...

In 1986, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Louisiana State University .

On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully. He got down on one knee, inspected the elephants foot, and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot.

The elephant turned to face the man and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned and walked away. Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.

Twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Peter and his son Cameron were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot Off The Ground , then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.

Remembering the encounter in 1986, Peter could not help wondering if this was the same elephant. Peter summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.

It probably wasn't the same elephant.

Nope. I rarely watch reality tv regardless of the subject, certainly couldnt watch 30 minutes or an hour about animals being recovered/helped. Far too uncomfortable viewing.

I just came across this thread and I think the idea is excellent! Not feeling particularly happy or sad at the moment but I’ll be checking it regularly.

We do @Starr Shine? - great show. The only reality shows we watch deal with saving or training animals (Cesar Millan, Lucky Dog, Dr. Pol, etc...). It's a great way to start our weekend mornings, sipping coffee and watching these.

Random sentences I found off a website that should make you laugh:

• I'm so blue I'm greener than purple

• BANANA ERROR!!

• Oh no, you're one of THEM!!

• I stepped on a corn flake, and now I'm a cereal killer

• When life gives you lemons, chuck them at people you hate

 

And don't worry, I'll find more to posta-hard-days-night-george-10
