This four-legged hero is being praised for saving hundred of animals from the continual and unforgiving Australian wildfires.
Stephen Hill arrived at the farm where he works in Corryong, Victoria, at four in the morning when he quickly realized the blazes were approaching the town. He then grabbed his herd dog Patsy and rushed to the barn where hundreds of sheep were gathered.
The 6-year-old shepherd mix quickly got to work helping wrangle the farm’s livestock away from the flames and into another barn for safety.
All but just six of the 220 sheep survived thanks to Patsy’s help and guidance — especially as it was in the dark.
“If you haven’t got a good dog, you can’t do so much with the sheep,” Hill shared with NBC News. “They’re really difficult to move in any way, shape or form unless you have a good dog.”
“It’s unbelievable and it’s only going to get worse. That’s why we put Patsy’s story out there,” Cath added. “People need something positive.”
A magnificent photo of a tigress walking through a forest along with her five cubs is popping up everywhere for the best reasons.
Shared by Parveen Kaswan who works for the Indian Forest Service – he additionally is a member of the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
After efforts to help aid the species to come back from being on the verge of extinction, the tigress spotted with the five cubs – two more than the average litter, is sharing hope for all of the world too see.
“This is magical picture. Count the cubs with tigress. I know for a reason how few people will be elated after seeing this. Efforts are helping in making this species bounce back from verge of extinction.”
A deer was found trapped in festive lights in Northern California according to the Marin Humane Society.
Just north of San Fransisco, the buck was spotted completely entangled in Christmas lights.
The organization then posted the photos of the animal on its Facebook page adding how they had been unable to capture it and remove the lights.
“This serves as a good reminder that when hanging holiday decorations, make sure they’re secure and high enough where they’re less likely to be an issue for wildlife,” the post read. “We’re lucky to share our space with so many animals in Marin County so let’s be mindful of their safety, even when we’re getting festive!”
Johnny Mathias was headed to his apartment in Houston when something out of a nightmare happened.
As he was exiting the elevator and one of his neighbors was getting on, along with her dog who was on a leash.
“When she got on, I was looking at the dog, because it was a cute dog,” Mathis revealed to CNN. “I noticed the leash was kinda long but I didn’t think it wasn’t going to make it on the elevator or anything.”
But the dog did not make it in — and as the doors shut, the small Pomeranian was stuck in the hallway.
Mathias attempted to yell for his neighbor but it was too late. As the doors closed the elevator began to rise and pulled the dog’s leash with it.
Mathias heroically stepped in and save the dog by quickly removing its leash before it was too late.
Holly Munoz believes that her seven-year-old dog Frank is house-trained but when he feels slighted — he takes her revenge by pooping on her possessions.
“You name it, Frank’s pooed on it. He has incredible aim. He definitely does it on purpose, he wants to make sure we know he’s angry. One time, I came back from a trip and he had pooed on my crackers and in my makeup bag. He’s an angry pooer.”
“If we go on vacation then he will poo on something. My son, Oliver, is his favourite person, they sleep together and they’re attached at the hip – so when he went to a sleepover Frank was annoyed and he pooed in my shoe. I’ll probably spend the next seven years finding and cleaning up his angry poos.”
A video has recently been posted to Reddit that reveals two cousins traveling in some of the areas hit by the Australian bushfires and collecting koalas and taking them to safety in their car.
The very short clip reveals a car filled with koalas that have been rescued in a car. The entire exchange was filmed on Kangaroo Island
Almost half of the Kangaroo Island is believed to be destroyed by the fires. It is estimated that over 20,000 koalas have died — which is over half of the island’s 50,000-strong population.But thankfully, a small few escaped being involved in that number.
This past week, thousands were stranded along the southeast coast of Australia as wildfires consumed the country.

In the town of Mallacoota, at least 4,000 people rushed to the shore to seek safety but the fires are getting to be so dangerous, that people are sheltering on boats in the water or finding refuge in the water itself.
In total so far, 900 homes have been decimated while millions of acres have been set on fire.
Over 500 million animals have been killed and due to climate change, there is no end to the fires that have continued to grow worse by the day.
