Bears are already cute, but what this one in Laos was doing takes the cake.

While a man was visiting the small Southeast Asian country of Laos, a trip to the local zoo turned into something incredible. When he showed up at the sun bear pen, he noticed one of the inhabitants was doing something a little odd…

Why, hello gentleman bear.

Although this is adorable, it could be a sign of past abuse.

It’s possible this bear was rescued from a bile farm.

A bile farm is a facility that keeps bears captive in “crush cages” to harvest their bile, a digestive fluid produced by the liver and stored in the gallbladder. It’s used in Chinese medicine, but life on such a farm is terrible for any creature.

There’s no information on the background of this bear, but hopefully his bipedal walking is just a quirk and not a sign of a lifetime of abuse. At least he can get out and enjoy the sun now!

They might not look it, but lions are really just big kittens at heart. Don’t believe us?

Well, these females at the Oregon Zoo are about to show you.

While they generally spend their days lazing around (sound familiar?), being fed at the same time, and never fearing for their safety, these beautiful lions still crave a little wild adventure now and then. In an effort to keep them alert and agile, workers at the zoo came up with a fun toy that plays on their feline instincts.

The fact that lions weigh in at over 250 pounds and can leap that far into the air proves Mother Nature wasn’t messing around when she created these amazing predators.

I guess they’re a little different from kittens after all…

The tales of animals kept in captivity in the circus are numerous and horrifying.

Trainers often use whips, muzzles, and bullhooks to coax them into the right pose, and when they’re not performing, they’re kept in cramped cages without access to the outdoors. It is insanely inhumane.

That’s why organizations like Animal Defenders International (ADI) are so important. They take a stand against this kind of cruel and unusual punishment. While we’ve written about their great work before, they’re always up to something wonderful.

Recently, they rescued 33 lions from the circus. In the biggest airlift of its kind, they flew them back to Africa to live on a sanctuary, where they can humanely live out their lives.

ADI has been working tirelessly in order to rescue abused animals and recently saved 33 lions from circuses in Peru and Colombia.

Their main goal for this rescue mission was to get the lions back to Africa, where they belong. They’ll live out their days at the Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary.

One of the big cats, Joseph, is an old, half-blind lion who endured immense amounts of torture during his time as a circus performer. But now he can rest easy knowing that’s behind him.

The rest of the lions have been getting along and the rescuers at ADI hope that they will bond and become more acclimated to their new surroundings at the sanctuary.

The work has been intense and having 33 new lions on the premises has proved to be a bit overwhelming, but thanks to the workers from ADI, these lions can live a happy, healthy life finally.

The investigation into the deplorable conditions these lions were living in went on for over two years. Thank goodness they don’t need to live in those nightmarish conditions anymore.

The next few months, the lions will live in bonding camps in order to get acclimated to the change of scenery, then they will be released into large, natural brush habitats that will be guarded by the sanctuary.

If you are interested in helping the cause via donation, or even becoming a rescue worker, you can find more information here. These lions won’t soon forget all the wonderful work ADI has done for them!

The reasons why mothers might want to relinquish their babies to a Safe Haven are numerous.

The mother may come from a low-income family unable to support her newborn, she could be the victim of sexual assault, she might fear for the baby’s livelihood because she is in an abusive relationship. The list could go on, but thanks to Safe Haven laws, mothers are able to give up their newborns to emergency personnel within 30 days of giving birth.

Recently, though, two Safe Haven locations in Indiana got a great upgrade.

Because of it, the firemen of Woodburn, Indiana, may start seeing a lot more action around their firehouse.

A Safe Haven Baby Box drop off has been installed at the local volunteer department.

The concept of Safe Haven locations has been around since 1999. A mother can drop off an unwanted, unharmed newborn at a local police station, fire department, or hospital.

Now, the Baby Box allows moms to do this with total anonymity.

Since the laws passed, it’s estimated that more than 3,000 babies have been saved. Hopefully, because of these new drop boxes, even more will find new homes.

The Indiana Safe Haven Baby Box is the first of its kind in the country, allowing mothers to drop off newborns they cannot care for into a chute where local emergency services are moments away to take care of it.

The baby can be quickly taken care of as the boxes are equipped with alarms. Emergency personnel are alerted to the fact that a baby has just been left.

All 50 states have Safe Haven laws. Newborns can be dropped off at police stations, fire departments, or hospitals, but the Baby Box allows the mothers to do this anonymously.

Many mothers feel intimidated and even shameful when dropping off their baby. The boxes aim to remove the perceived stigma and get the baby to a place where it can be helped.

While this box is the first of its kind in the U.S., they are quite common around the world.

However, some critics of the box say that it will make it too easy to give away a child without much thought behind the act, and it can deprive the mothers of much-needed medical care.

When you consider that many children are still abandoned in unsafe locations, these boxes are clearly needed.

Baby boxes are expected to begin popping up around the country. No matter where you stand on the issue, it’s important to remember that while it’s sad these children are being left without parents, they’re getting the help they need to survive. Hopefully, this means they’ll get the chance to ultimately find loving adoptive parents!

Every year, car crashes result in 37,000 deaths and 2.3 million injuries in the United States alone.

And seeing footage of these wrecks is always jarring. Every night when we turn on the news, we’re confronted with the life-ruining reality of how quickly a simple car ride can turn into a complete tragedy.

Fortunately, there are plenty of everyday heroes out there who help those in need when disaster strikes on the road. This motorcyclist, for example, was on the highway when came across a chilling scene. A car was flipped upside down on the highway, and the driver was trapped inside. That’s when he sprung into action.

He didn’t even hesitate! Even though the open road is a dangerous place, it’s always nice to know that there are Good Samaritans out there who will stop at nothing to help.

Quite a legitimate comment for a someone born after Y2K. It sure would have been nice to have 3D printers back then to create our floppy discs.
