A black bear mauled a Florida woman outside her home near Orlando Saturday evening. During the subsequent investigation in Seminole County, Fla., officers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have shot one bear and euthanized five others, the agency announced in various press releases.
The Kruger Sightings YouTube channel has uploaded another great video of lions squaring off against cape buffalo. This from the video description: "Amazing video of a pride of lions hunting a buffalo, but then a fellow buffalo comes and saves the day … Taken from Ngwenya Lodge outside the Kruger National Park in South Africa."
Here's hoping you have an easier time hunting down your Monday lunch.
There are plenty of lion vs. cape buffalo videos out there, but this is one of the most dramatic. It's impressive to see how the lions are able to drive back a big herd of buffalo, but soon they are over run.
One lion ends up cornered on the top of a small knoll, and is barely able to escape.
Here’s a great Monday pick-me-up to check out on your next break. This moose calf tried to jump a fence but didn’t even come close. Instead its front hooves fell between the slats and the homeowner has to shave slivers of wood from the gate with a hatchet. The rescue doesn’t take long and, unlike most wildlife rescues, the freed calf hangs around afterward. It stares at the guys behind the fence for several minutes before eventually taking off down the snowy road. According to comments, this took place in Quesnel, B.C.
Last week we wrote about a wild hog killed in Bertie County, N.C. that maxed out a set of 500-pound scales. Now a second hunter killed another boar weighing more than 500 pounds during an early morning hunt in Scotland County, N.C.
Zoo attendees in Billings, Mont., were treated to a scene of destruction Saturday as grizzly bears Bruno and Ozzy were let loose in a fake campsite to do what bears do in the woods. The bears shredded a tent, a sleeping bag, and chairs; knocked over and tore through a garbage can; and ripped into food containers. The only thing that survived was a bear-proof cooler that neither bruin could manage to get into.
The purpose of the demonstration was to allow Bruno and Ozzy to work through some deep emotional issues both had carried since childhood. OK...
The real reason for the show was to demonstrate how most bear-proof items aren’t bear proof at all.
For six years the hog evaded members of the White Oak Ranch Hunting Club in the Indian Woods area of Bertie County, N.C. Hunters were aware of the hog for several years, and in 2011 game cameras started capturing photos as it roamed the 1,886-acre club.
