COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – Here’s something you don’t see everyday: a bear looking for a little nosh at a pizza joint in Colorado Springs! The baby bear helped herself to some pizza (that was not too cold and not too hot, of course) and then took a sweet little snooze.
“I walked back there and the bear was asleep right there on top of the icing,” said district wildlife manager Phillip Gurule.
The little one was having trouble hunting for food, because wildlife officials say she had a broken paw. Once she’s rehabbed, she’ll be relocated.
In California, another four-legged friend was in need of a rescue from a raging river! Firefighters pulled the poor pooch out of the swollen Los Angeles River, along with at least three people who got caught off guard by heavy rains. It was a ‘ruff’ few minutes, but everyone is ok.
Also, 320 miles north of Los Angeles in Moss Landing, whale watchers got quite a show when a humpback whale breached and landed on some nearby kayakers. Everyone is ok, but that was a little too close for comfort!
If that looked like a bad dream, then this is the stuff of nightmares! National Geographic photographer Trevor Frost captured mind-blowing video of a saltwater crocodile using its tail to propel itself toward a dangling piece meat.
As they say in Australia, crikey!
