A Dolphin Asks A Human For Help On A Night Dive Near Hawaii This Summer: Dog Cares For Abandoned Human Baby.

We have seen animal rescue, but rarely have we seen the animal search for humans to save it! On a night-time dive near Hawaii, 2 divers were found by a bottlenose dolphin and started to swim around them over and over again.

When looking closer, one of them discovered the reason for this strange behavior – the dolphin had a fishing line hooked around it, hindering its ability to swim.

They cut him free, and the dolphin swam away, relieved. The fact that a dolphin would come to humans for help is once again evidence of its amazing intelligence, as most injured animals would never come close to a human and would actually be aggressive and defensive.

This is amazing to watch and a life-time experience for those two divers, who got to share a moment of true understanding with a wild animal. Babamail

A grizzly bear watches near the Swan Lake Flats. According to NPS warnings: “If The Bear Stands up on Two Legs:

Some people mistakenly believe that when a bear rears up onto two legs that the bear is about to charge, that rearing up on two legs is an aggressive posture that means the bear is going to attack (people have learned this from Hollywood Movies), THIS IS NOT TRUE! When a bear stands up on two legs it is trying to gather more information about what you are and what your intentions are.Bears gather this information through a combination of scent, sight, and sound.

Standing up on two legs improves the bears ability to gather sight and scent information. This is a good time to start backing away, talking to the bear in a calm voice, and letting the bear know that you are a person and that you mean no harm to the bear or its cubs.” Good advice

mountain lion
A mountain lion picking its way carefully down the rock. The mountain lion, also called the cougar, is the largest member of the cat family living in Yellowstone. Mountain lions can weigh up to 200 pounds (~90 kg), although lions in Yellowstone are thought to range between 140 and 160 pounds (~65 and ~70 kg) for males and around 100 pounds (45 kg) for females.
Two to three kittens may be born at any time of year, although most arrive in summer and fall. For reasons that are not clear, only about 50 percent of kittens survive their first year. The current population of lions in Yellowstone is estimated to be 18-24 animals and is thought to be increasing.

Although Yellowstone is not a birding mecca because of its high altitude and cold winters, it is home to a variety of interesting bird species that attract visitor attention every year. The park has a good resident population of Bald Eagles, Trumpeter Swans, Common Loons, Ospreys, American White Pelicans, and Sandhill Cranes.”

Important fact: Bison actually harm more people every year in Yellowstone than bears do. People don’t keep their distance from the peaceful looking bison, and end up getting charged by the angry beasts.

Visitors to Yellowstone must understand that these are wild animals, not accustomed to humans like safari animals might. A good way to judge, says the rangers, is that if your presence affects the behavior of the animals in any way – that’s too close.


When a 2,000 pound buffalo wants to walk on the road, they’ll walk on the road. Especially when they’re in a group. Drivers have to be extra careful because they have been known to charge at cars, which to them may look like big, scary animals. Although they will mostly ignore them.

Bears may be seen in Yellowstone March through November. Yellowstone is one of the only areas south of Canada that still has large grizzly bear populations. According to the 2013 Yellowstone trip planner: “Do not run from a bear. Carry bear spray and take time to learn how to use it safely and effectively. If you have a surprise encounter with a bear, do not run. Slowly back away. If a bear charges, stand your ground and use your bear spray. It has been highly successful at stopping aggressive behavior in bears. If a bear charges and makes contact with you, fall to the ground onto your stomach and ‘play dead‘.”

Bison have lived in the area of yellowstone since prehistoric times, they are truly the natives of this land, and were hunted and respected by the native americans.

Dog Rescues Abandoned Human Baby


Stray dog takes human baby back to its litter after mother left it to die NAIROBI: A nursing dog foraging for food found an abandoned baby girl in a forest in Kenya and carried the infant to its litter of puppies, witnesses said yesterday.

Dog Baby

The stray dog carried the infant across a busy road and a barbed wire fence in a poor neighbourhood near the Ngong Forests in the capital, Stephen Thoya told the independent Daily Nation newspaper.

The dog apparently found the baby on Friday in the plastic bag in which the infant had been abandoned, said Aggrey Mwalimu, owner of the compound where the animal is now living. It was unclear how the baby survived in the bag without suffocating.

Doctors said the baby had been abandoned about two days before the dog discovered her. Medical workers later found maggots in the infant’s umbilicalcord, a product of days of neglect, said Hannah Gakuo, the spokeswoman of the Kenyatta National Hospital, where the girl was taken for treatment.

No one has yet claimed the baby, she said. But the 3.3kg infant “is doing well, responding to treatment, she is stable.. – she is on antibiotics”, Gakuo said. Workers at the hospital are calling the child Angel, she said. Unwanted infants are often abandoned in Kenya.

Poverty and mothers’ failed relationships with fathers are often blamed for the problem, and Kenya’s weak law enforcement and social security systems mean that most women who abandon babies are never caught.

“Abandoned babies are normally taken to the Kenyatta National Hospital because it is a public hospital,” Gakuo said. “People are now donating diapers and baby clothes for. this one.”

– Sapa-AP Kenyans eager to adopt baby ‘Angel’ rescued by ‘Saviour’ NAIROBI:

The stray dog that rescued a newborn girl abandoned in a Kenyan forest has been given a home and a name – Mkombozi, or Saviour – and offers to adopt the tiny infant dubbed Angel were yesterday pouring into the hospital where she was being cared for.

“The publicity on the way the baby was rescued has sparked a lot of public interest in helping her,” said Hannah Gakuo of Kenyatta National Hospital, where the baby is being treated for an umbilical cord infection and exposure to cold weather.

The stray dog that saved the child, struggled to cope with newfound celebrity status yesterday, a day after its last surviving puppy died for unknown reasons, said Jean Gilchrist of the Kenya Society for the Protection and Care of Animals. Animal welfare officials gave the dog its first bath and de-worming yesterday.

“She looks a bit depressed, so we’d like to examine her to see if she has a temperature or any other problem,” Gilchrist said.

“She wasn’t happy when we all poured into the compound. She decided to leave, but kids in the compound brought her back for the bath as she was full of ticks.” Mary Adhiambo, a resident in the compound where the dog lives, said Mkombozi apparently found the baby on Friday in a plastic bag.

The dog reportedly dragged the child, named “Angel” by health workers, across a busy road and through some barbed wire to the shed in the poor Nairobi neighbourhood where puppies from two stray dogs were sheltering.

Unwanted infants are often abandoned in Kenya, with poverty and failed relationships frequently to blame. Kenya’s weak law enforcement and poor social security system mean few people who forsake their babies are found and brought to trial.

The baby was discovered after two children alerted elders that they heard the sound of a baby crying near their wooden and corrugated-iron-sheet shack. Residents found the mixedbreed dog lying next to the baby along with her own pup. Residents took the child to a nearby police station to record a statement, before taking her to the Kenyatta National Hospital for treatment.

“People have been calling the hospital, asking about the possibility of adopting her,” Gakuo told The Associated Press.

Officials in the government’s Children Department were not immediately available for comment on the problem of abandoned babies and the possible fate of Angel.
