NT cattleman rescues heifer wrapped around a tree by its tailA Northern Territory cattle producer has come to the rescue of a heifer who had accidentally wrapped its tail around a tree and got stuck.

Annaburroo Station manager Adrian Phillips said he had been checking one of his paddocks when he came across the animal"It seemed a bit odd the way she was on her own, so I poked over on the bike and found out she had herself tied in knots," he told the NT Country Hour.

"I tried to unravel it [the tail], but couldn't because she was proper tied up.

"So I went home, grabbed the chainsaw, cut the tree, and she got up and on her way."

How did it happen?

Mr Phillips said it seemed the heifer had been trying to get rid of flies when the freak accident happened.

"She's then gone around the tree trying to get herself free and has made the situation even worse for herself."

Mr Phillips said he had never seen "such a freak accident by the tail" during his years working in the cattle industry.

On a station renowned for its big crocodiles, Mr Phillips said the animal was lucky he had found her so soon.

"Although she wasn't very appreciative [when I rescued her]," he laughed.

"She full got up me.".

But that paw will be just so fit.  I wish it would stop yawning though I'm ready for bed again looking at the video.

This is the heartwarming moment a giant humpback whale protects a marine biologist from a nearby shark attack by shielding her with its body and pushing her out of shark’s way.
The point-of-view footage was filmed in the waters off Muri Beach, Rarotonga, of the Cook Islands in the South Pacific where whale biologist Nan Hauser, 63, was snorkeling with a 50,000 pound mammal.

Moments later, a 15-foot tiger shark is lurking in the distance. Initially the snorkeler presumes that the shark is another whale coming to join the fun, but when she sees its tail moving left to right instead of up to down like sharks do, she realised it is in fact a more menacing animal swimming towards her, so she rings the alarm of trouble.

This video is proof of whale’s intuitive nature to protect other species of animal as this humpback whale protects Nan and her team from a circling tiger shark by putting her under its pectoral fin and using its head and mouth to push her away.

Watch as the giant mammal is tucking Nan under its pectoral fin and even lifts the biologist out of the water at one point. Soon after, Nan returned to safety and the whale surfaced to check on her at the boat.

Nan, who lives on the Cook Islands, says “I’ve spent 28 years underwater with whales, and have never had a whale so tactile and so insistent on putting me on his head, or belly, or back, or, most of all, trying to tuck me under his huge pectoral fin.”

“I tried to get away from him for fear that if he rammed me too hard, or hit me with his flippers or tail, that would break my bones and rupture my organs. If he held me under his pectoral fin, I would have drowned.”

Who would have expected that whales can be such protective creatures and save you from trouble! Amazing!

Experience is something you gain a few minutes after you could have used it!

Houston's Mounted Police unit goes bitless! Their 40 horses from all breeds and backgrounds working 8-10 hours every day in downtown Houston have all been barefoot since 2003, Now they have been swapped to bitless bridles and halters. The horses are all thriving, healthier than ever, and their vet bills have been cut in half.

Lastly, Some Very Sad News... 

In Case you Missed It

It is with a very heavy heart that we announce the passing of Sudan - the last remaining male Northern White Rhino. 
 

To all the wonderful people at Ol Pejeta Conservancy who watched over him - well into his old age, we thank you and can only imagine the hurt you must be feeling right now. Our thoughts are with you. 
 

We hope that Sudan's legacy ensures that we never again have to hear this story. Never again do we want to have to say "the last of his kind". 
 

Rest in Peace Sudan.
