Lisha, a Labrador, is world famous for her mothering skills even though she’s never birthed any pups of her own. The dog, who lives at Oudtshoorn’s Cango Wildlife Ranch in South Africa, has played surrogate mom to more than 30 animals, including cheetah and tiger cubs, potbelly pigs, a porcupine, a pygmy hippo, a weasel and a barn owl. Rob Hall, director of the wildlife refuge, says that Lisha domesticates the wild animals and serves as a bridge between them and humans. “They adjust more easily to her, and when they see that she trusts us, they are more at ease around us," he said. Hall and his wife, Nadine, said they noticed early on that regardless of the whether Lisha encountered a kitten or a baby hippo, she treated them all the same — like a child that needed a mother. "She would just walk up and lick the creature she was caring for.

If you want to see a bunch of happy dogs, don’t miss The 10 Cutest Sleeping Dogs of the Week When a group of dog rescuers arrived at the market to show the dogs available for adoption, somebody had left 12 puppies on the street – 8 of them were approximately 5 weeks old. In shock, the rescuers didn’t know what to do. The group had recently canceled several adoption days at the market because of bad weather, so they were over their capacity with puppies still needing to be adopted out. Also, the abandoned puppies were so small that they needed to be fed every two hours, including at night. That’s when a spayed stray dog approached, lay down beside the shoe box where the puppies were sleeping, and began caring for them.
Three Siberian Tiger cubs were born on May 15, 2011 at the Zürich Zoo in Switzerland. There's one male named Lailek, and two females named Luva and Liska. Mom Elena was born in 2004 in the Tierpark Hellabrunn, Munich, and has been at the Zürich zoo since March, 2010. The father, Coto, was born in June 2002 at the Zürich Zoo and in fact was the last cub born there before this trio, his offspring. Photo Credit: Emmanuel Keller
Capturing a sparrowwhile fighting, is a good luck, as these birds do not differ militancy. 57-year-old postman and photographer Urs Shmidli from Switzerland was able to capture many expressive scenes from the life of sparrow. Urs was watching the sparrows since two years in his garden. He has not only patience and a good lens, but he owns a garden, which is very favourite of birds. Through all this, we are able to enjoy these amzing shots (often with a dramatic storyline.) Have a look…. 1.
Using Elephants, monkeys and bears in travelling circus acts is to be outlawed, ministers have announced. The Government has caved in to increasing pressure from MPs and campaigners who argued that circuses are illsuited to the needs of wild animals. Previously, it has suggested a ban was not necessary because the number of such acts was declining anyway. But the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs committee said that was “poor logic” and more than 100 MPs signed up to a Commons motion demanding prohibition. Environment Minister Ben Bradshaw said he had “listened carefully to the arguments” and agreed that performances by wild animals in circuses are “not compatible with their welfare needs”.
