As pythons continue to wreak havoc on the Florida Everglades, they are continually coming in contact with alligators. Some of these battles have been documented in photos and video, but usually they are long, drawn-out struggles. YouTube ojatro user captured such an encounter a few years ago, but played his video at X6 speed. The result? A web video sensation. Check out the clip here…
It's been a long, cold week and if you're like us, you are probably ready to cut loose for the weekend. Well, apparently so is this deer. If you don't think this video is funny … just chill bro, it will be Monday again soon enough.
As for the rest of you, do you think the audio on this YouTube video is real, or is this some video editing trickery?
Deer-related vehicle crashes are relatively common, but they’re not often captured on camera. This YouTube video of a snowmobile trek in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula shows footage of a young deer barreling out of the woods and smacking into a snowmobiler’s windshield.
A few weeks ago, a pair of snowboarders made headlines after they were fined for chasing a moose down a ski hill. Well, now it seems the moose are looking for payback. This video, uploaded to LiveLeak, shows a cow moose wreaking havoc on a ski hill. When one of the skiers tries to shepherd her off the run, the moose charges.
Here's a tip for folks unfamiliar with the temperament of cow moose: If she has her ears pinned back and hackles raised, get out of the way quickly.
New Hampshire's moose population has suffered a significant decline in recent years. To understand why moose are dying, state Fish and Game officials are launching a collar tracking study this month. The state's moose herd has decreased by about 40 percent since the 1990s, falling from roughly 7,000 moose to the current population of 4,000 animals, according to WBZ-TV. New Hampshire Fish and Game reports the population peaked in 1996 at approximately 7,600 moose.

You’ve just got to love GoPro cameras—even if they are capable of capturing video of your imminent demise. It’s hard to say whether or not this wild boar was intentionally charging the hunter or simply running blindly away from hounds, but there is a high pucker factor involved here. We don’t speak very good French here at OL, so we’d like to offer our deepest apologies if the language in the video is somehow offensive.
When California decided to ban the use of hounds to hunt bears in 2012, many around the country worried that it was another thinly veiled attempt to snuff out hunting in general. Now those concerns seem to be well founded.
California hunters killed fewer bears in 2013 than during any other year in the last two decades, and most agree that this a direct consequence of the ban, according to the Sacramento Bee.
California has about 33,000 bears and in 2012 hunters took 1,962. In the 2013 season, they took about 1,000, a 48 percent decline.
