A photographer in Bangladesh has captured photographs of a daring and heartwarming rescue hero that risks his life to save a drowning baby deer. He will restore your faith in humanity. When a baby deer was separate from its family by a flooded river in Noakhali, Bangladesh, its chances for survival were slim. But Belal, a local boy believed to be in his early teens, braved the rainwater-swollen river to reunite the fawn with its family. As the photos show, the swift river waters were at times above the boy’s head – all that was visible was his hand skillfully holding the baby deer by all four legs. Hasibul Wahab, the wildlife photographer who captured the daring rescue, was as impressed by the boy’s heroism as he was worried for his safety. “My friend was even ready to jum
It was time for the truck driver to hit the road again, but first he needed to check his tires - and thank goodness he did! Because as he was bent over checking out one of the front tires, he spotted a tiny baby aardvark leaning up against it! The truck driver, who was working in Namibia, looked all around the area in search of the aardvark's mama, but he couldn't find her anywhere. So, he picked up the baby aardvark and drove with him back to his company's headquarters.

Erika de Jager runs the orphanage from her home. The little aardvark, named E.T. by de Jager, had hardly any body hair, and was estimated to be a...

Thirty-three lions boarded a record-breaking flight to a South African sanctuary after they were reportedly rescued from circuses in Peru and Colombia. As the plane touched down in Johannesburg, the lions could be heard "bellowing out a huge roar that echoed through the aircraft," as if in celebration of their new-found freedom, according to Animal Defenders International. This was the first time so many lions had been transported by air, according to ADI. The founder of the Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in Johannesburg even called the lions' journey to Africa their "birth-right." Iron, one of the nine Colombian lions on the flight, was the first to step into the sanctuary and immediately rubbed against a tree. "These animals had never felt grass beneath their feet, or the sun over thei
U.S Customs and Border Protection agents have seized 42 pounds of horse meat, including 13 pounds of horse genitals, from two women arriving from Mongolia at Dulles International Airport in Virginia.
