This is a picture of Luke Rowles when he was 15. He saw a group of men in a garden, kicking and beating this poor fox whose mouth had been sealed shut with duct tape. Lucas went straight to them without regard to his own safety, he shouted at the men and grabbed the fox. After healing his wounds, he freed the animal. Today, Luke continues rescuing animals for the RSDR - The world needs more brave people like Luke, with an unconditional will to help those in need.

I really find this to be an amazing innovation to animal sciences. I didn’t even know things like this were possible! It’s adorable really.
I don’t know what it’s called, but I found this on facebook and wanted to share.
A new lion population has been discovered - in a zoo. The Addis Ababa zoo, found in the capital of Ethiopia, has always considered its group of lions special as they had dark manes and small bodies. Now however, they know their lions are unique as researchers have found the lions to be a completely genetically distinct population to all lions that have been similarly analyzed.
While the zoo staff
Siamese fighting fish have to incorporate surface visits into their fights so they can breathe, according to a new study.
Native to south-east Asia, Siamese fighting fish (Betta splendens) are named for the males’ aggressive displays and are highly territorial. They belong to the suborder Anabantoidei, and like all anabantoids they possess a lung-like organ - known as a labyrinth organ and giving
The birds in these photos are nestling Yellow Crowned Night Herons. They are water fowl and at this age stand nearly three feet tall. All four of these herons are about the same age. The two in the first photo came from the same nest. Yellow Crowned Night Herons nest high in trees during the late spring and early summer. If a nestling happens to fall out of the nest, usually it can climb back up the tree and into the nest with no problems. Issues occur when the nestling is not able to climb back up to the nest for whatever reason, whether it be injury from the fall or just not being coordinated enough to achieve the goal. The first two were found at the bottom of their tree struggling to get back up but to no avail. They were brought in to Cherie’s facility and were cared for there until they were transferred to another rehabilitation worker. The nestling in the second picture had also fallen from it’s nest and was unable to make it’s way back up the tree. Cherie had worked with this bird quite a bit. She’d gotten it to the point she could take it out of it’s cage, stand it up on the floor, and it would follow her around her rehab room while she worked. I was able to reach down and touch it, an it followed me around as well while I worked. Due to this comfort around humans, I don’t know that this bird will ever be released to be on it’s own in the wild, but it will at least be in a wildlife refuge. The nestling in the third picture is one that was brought in injured. It was found yards away from it’s nesting tree and wasn’t making any attempt to get back to the nest. The owner of the property was able to walk up to the bird, pick it up and put it in a carrier with little to no struggle from the bird. When Cherie and I got a good look at the bird, we found a bullet hole. Someone had shot the bird out of it’s nest and the force of the shot propelled it out of the tree and onto the ground a good distance away from it’s nest. I am not sure how this bird ended up doing. We started it on a round of antibiotics and sewed the bullet wound shut with sutures. The heron was still in shock from being shot when we worked on the injury.
