Woman rescues orphaned baby armadillo

A woman in Kentucky rescued an orphaned baby armadillo who weighed only a pound.

She named him Arnie.

Since little is known about armadillos, the woman had a tough time figuring out what to feed Arnie. But Arnie has a strong will to live, is curious about everything, and loves to play in water.

Who knew armadillos can be cute!

Shelter dog gets forever home by making his bed every day

Animal shelters are full of homeless dogs and cats. But a Pit-bull at the SICSA Adoption Center in Kettering, Ohio, stood out from the crowd.

Every day, while waiting to be adopted, Rush would make his own bed.

This captured the attention and the hearts of one couple who adopted Rush.

Little dog saves 4 tiny kittens from fire

The Jack Russell is a small dog — a type of terrier that ranges in size from 1o to 15 inches long.

Leo is a Jack Russell mix who lives with his human (a woman with four children) and animal (another dog, Barney, and four newborn kittens) family in Melbourne, Australia.

Leo may be small but he has the heart of a lion.

One night, Leo’s house caught fire. Soon, flames filled the whole house.

Leo’s human family and Barney managed to get out, but Leo refused to flee.

When the firefighters got into the building, they found little Leo lying unconscious on the ground.

When they picked him up, they noticed that four tiny and alive kittens were underneath him. Leo was keeping the kittens safe by using his body to shield them from the fire.

Fortunately, the firefighters were able to revive Leo with oxygen.

God’s creatures like little Leo are extraordinary in their courage and sacrificial love. They put us humans to shame.

This is cool: Rare Mandarin duck makes a home in New York’s Central Park

From Fox News: An unusual animal has made its home in New York’s Central Park, dazzling passersby with its vibrant blues, purples, greens and gold: a Mandarin duck. This creature is far from its homeland – it’s native to East Asia – and its presence is both baffling and exciting enthusiasts.

The duck, a male, was first spotted in Central Park’s Pond on Oct. 10. A video of the bird was shared by the Manhattan Bird Alert, a Twitter account run by birder David Barrett that keeps New Yorkers up to date with rare bird sightings and beyond.

Thousands of people viewed the footage, many of whom were anxious to catch a glimpse of the rarity themselves. But the following day, the Mandarin duck had vanished.

Roughly two weeks later, the bird returned. This time, the duck – not to be confused with the North American wood duck – was spotted at the boat basin on West 79th Street, near the Hudson River. The creature “got a lot of publicity, but few people got to see it,” Barrett told Fox News on Thursday. “But then it shows up mysteriously at boat basin.”

On Sunday, the bird was “noted again at the Central Park Pond,” he said with enthusiasm.

But what is perhaps the most exhilarating part of the bird’s story is how it arrived in Manhattan in the first place. Barrett theorized three possibilities, the first being the duck had escaped from a local zoo.

The Mandarin duck is not native in the United States at all; it’s a wild bird in East Asia. The only way you would see that duck in our area is at a zoo, and the Central Park Zoo has a Mandarin duck that looks just like this one,” which is why he first thought the facility may have lost the colorful creature, he said.

But officials with the Central Park Zoo and others in different boroughs have not reported a missing Mandarin duck, Barrett confirmed after placing calls.

That leaves two other options: either the duck was owned privately – maybe in neighboring New Jersey or kept illegally as a pet in New York City – and had escaped or was dumped by an owner who no longer wanted it.

“Perhaps someone had a little duck farm and it escaped,” Barrett suggested, noting the animal was “definitely owned because it has a black band around its leg, signifying it was a captive bird.” It’s also possible the Mandarin’s owner “got tired of it and decided to release it in the park,” an occurrence that is not uncommon with exotic pets, Barrett said.

While we may never know for sure how the creature arrived, the duck is integrating well with its surrounding wildlife, including mallard ducks — a Central Park staple.

“Ducks have their own community, so this is very important,” he said. “Ducks need to work together to protect each other, so we don’t want the others to ostracize it.” But luckily for this duck, “things are going pretty well. The Mandarin is an aggressive duck and it’s asserting its dominance,” Barrett explained.

With winter on the way, Barrett expressed concern the duck could possibly die — not because of cold temperatures, but due to lack of food.

“There is a risk it could die if the water freezes over,” Barrett said, explaining the Mandarin duck is a “dabbler,” meaning it gets its food by feeding off of insects and vegetation on the pond’s surface.

Thankfully, there typically is an open patch of water at the Pond, allowing the bird to find food until spring arrives.

While the bird will likely never breed – there are no female Mandarin ducks currently at the Pond and the male is unlikely to cross-breed – Barrett said it could theoretically make its home in Central Park for the rest of its life.

If that’s the case, Barrett is all for it. “It looks so distinctly different … it’s breathtaking,” he said.

Canadian NHL player sued by woman who aborted three of his babies, supposedly for ca$h

The player Evander Kane/Instagram photo

Apparently not all #BlackLivesMatter.

If this story is true, both of these people make me sick to my stomach.

From TMZ: NHL superstar Evander Kane is being sued by a woman who claims he promised to pay her $3 MILLION to abort their child … so she did … but he never ponied up the dough. 

It’s all in a lawsuit filed by a woman using the alias “Jane Doe” to protect her identity. In the suit, the woman claims she started dating Kane in 2015.

Doe claims Kane got her pregnant in 2016 — but they both agreed to get an abortion

They continued to have a sexual relationship and he knocked her up again in 2017. Doe claims Kane pressured her to abort again because a baby would damage his hockey career … and also ruin the relationship he had with his official “girlfriend.”

The woman ultimately agreed to a 2nd abortion

Then in May 2018, Doe claims Kane got her pregnant for a 3rd time — even though she had used Plan B as a last-ditch attempt at birth control.

But, this time, Doe claims she did not want to abort — which caused problems with Kane.

In her suit, Doe claims Kane told her proceeding with the pregnancy would be a “huge mistake” so he started “bullying” her into seeking a 3rd abortion.

When she refused, Doe claims Kane offered her $1 million to change her mind. She told him no. So, Kane came back with a $3 million offer … and it was an offer Doe admits she couldn’t refuse.

Doe claims she had the abortion in June 2018 — but Kane never made good on the $3 million payment. 

When she followed up with him, Doe claims Kane strung her along … until finally telling her he wasn’t going to make the payment.  She claims Kane tried to turn the tables and accused her of extortion — and ultimately instructed her to solely deal with his attorney. 

The woman is suing for more than $6 MILLION for the $3 million payment — AND other damages including intentional infliction of emotional distress.

We’ve reached out to Kane’s attorney for comment — so far, no word back.

27-year-old Kane is one of the best hockey players in the NHL — and recently signed a 7-year, $49 million contract extension.

Kane was the 4th overall pick in the 2009 NHL Draft and went on to score 190 goals in his career ever since.
