The Pygmy Marmoset is a rare tiny monkey found in rain forests in South America. Sadly, little Ninita was born deaf and was abandoned by her parents. Thankfully, the Rare Species Conservatory Foundation found her and saved her. In this precious viral video, Ninita receives a relaxing massage. Since she is so tiny, the caretaker has to use a toothbrush to brush her back.
This adorable clip has gone viral with over half a million new view over the past week. Too cute!!
Is it really a shock that adorable video by Sam Nevens has gone viral with over 750,000 views? The clip features Dachshund puppy dogs running and frolicking in the grass captured close up with a GoPro camera. The results are simply precious, and the Web approves.
So the cat comes in the house with the kitty door. Ok. But what else is coming in? Whoa, it’s Bambi! A baby deer just comes right in. Cute. The video is being shared on TastefullyOffensive.
Before the Seahawks vs Giants game at CenturyLink Field, a Seahawks fan experienced a very unique, and painful, close encounter with the team’s live mascot. A very real hawk was set free by its trainer to fly around the stadium and hype up the fans. But instead of returning to its traienr, the great bird landed on a fan’s head. Ouch! It’s no surprise this rare clip by FOX Sports has gone viral!
Sometimes, you just gotta sing. Even when you’re home alone, drunk with your cat, you just gotta sing. And force kitty to be your audience.
That’s what happened to bard55. One night, feeling very lonely and tipsy, he started singing the 90′s classic Kiss From A Rose to his cat.
Roxy Danckwerts got the surprise of her life when she discovered a young, relatively little and elephant near her home.
The poor little guy had gotten lost after trying to cross a river with his herd and ended up washing away. Luckily Roxy actually owns Wild is Life, a wildlife sanctuary and knew just how to care for the little guy.
She named him Mojo, and he now acts like her personal elephant dog! Sadly he’s getting just a bit too big to be allowed to keep inside for too much longer, but I bet he’ll figure out a way in regardless!
The agency killed everything from the endangered northern harrier to muskrats to a parakeet over the past two years in the name of airline safety.
The Port Authority is responsible for the killing of 20,000 animals over two years, including threatened and endangered species, the New York Post reports.

According to Goose Watch NYC founder David Karopkin, “[The Port Authority] take a kill-first approach” and that there’s “no incentive to take a long-term look at this issue. Killing is a way for them to pat themselves on the shoulder and say they’re protecting people.”
The issue of wildlife management gained a higher profile after the 2009 crash landing of a US Airways flight on the Hudson River, piloted by Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, was caused by Canada geese stalling the engine.
Port Authority representative Ron Marisco said the agency kills animals that “pose immediate threats to aviation safety and do not respond to nonlethal harassment” and also claimed that 95% of wildlife control is non-lethal.
Here are some statistics on the animals the Port Authority killed in the past two years:
1. 11 ospreys (marked as “Of special concern” by the report.)
Marisco said that the agency has a permit to kill the osprey because they “posed immediate threats to aviation safety and did not respond to nonlethal harassment.”
2. 3 American kestrels (marked as “threatened” by the report.)

3. 1 northern harrier (labeled as “endangered” by the report.)
4. 5,729 laughing gulls.
5. 3,203 European starlings.
6. 2,445 herring gulls.
7. 1,908 mourning doves.

8. 1,070 brown-headed cowbirds.
9. 997 Canada geese.
10. 82 eastern cottontail rabbits.
11. 62 woodchucks.
12. 44 muskrats.
13. 11 white-tailed deer.
14. 11 coyotes.
15. 5 snowy owls.
Friends Of Animals sued the U.S. Department Of Agriculture over the Port Authorities killing of snowy owls.
16. 4 red foxes.
17. 1 monk parakeet.
Priscilla Feral, president of Friends of Animals stated: “A parakeet? The idea that parakeets would bring down an aircraft is ridiculous. This gives you an idea of how trigger-happy [the PA] are.”
18. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals representative Martin Mercereau stated:
The Port Authority is trigger happy. Killing these animals demonstrates sidestepping of humane methods and mindless reliance on lethal force. Either they’re lying or not trying hard enough. Tax dollars are just paying for an endless killing cycle. When wildlife is killed, more animals move in for available resources. Effective wildlife management is based on a simple rule: get rid of the food, make the environment unattractive, and the animals will move on. Non-lethal works and is long-term effective.

Even though there are three bowls of food, this mean orange cat won’t allow his feline friend to enjoy any dinner. Every time the white cat takes a few bites, the orange cat pushes the other away.
Could this be Garfield in real life?
