Ouch! Doctor Removes Giant Stingray Barb Stuck in Man’s Foot

Stay away if you can’t handle the sight of blood.

A A A

Ever since Australian wildlife expert Steve Irwin was killed by a stingray in 2006, these harmless-looking sea creatures gained quite a fearsome reputation. Now stingrays do not usually attack humans, but they do use those nasty, poisoned stingers for self-defense.

They don’t usually attack humans.

Imagine this piercing through your heart.

If you become unlucky enough to come into contact with a stinger, you will experience pain, muscle cramps, and swelling as a result of the venom. In the case of Irwin, the stinger pierced his thoracic wall, which resulted to massive trauma that caused his death.

Now if you’re still playing around with the idea of going into marine waters and messing around with these rays, you might want to think that over and watch this cringe-inducing video of a stingray barb being extracted from a man’s foot. This is pretty gruesome, so if you’re eating or just can’t handle the sight of blood, you can go move on to our other pages now.

If the man’s groans of pain while the sting is being cut and pulled out and the sight of blood gushing out from the gaping hole are not enough to stay away from stingrays, I don’t know what else will.

Vulture’s Dinner Turned Into A Nightmare After Its Head Got Stuck in Dead Pig’s Butt

The worst of all bad luck.

So how does it feel to have your head stuck inside a pig's butt? We wouldn't know for sure, but one unlucky vulture would have been able to tell the smelly story if only it had the ability to talk.

The story begins with a dead pig lying on the ground, waiting to be feasted on. A lone vulture spotted the carcass, and well, it might have thought that it was its lucky day. But Mother Nature had other plans. Blame it to gravity, or to poor aim, or to pure bad luck, but the vulture's lucky day turned into its worst nightmare.

The poor vulture ended up having its head stuck inside the dead pig's anus. It struggled several times to free itself from the clenched orifice, but to no avail. Fortunately, after an hour or so of painstaking struggle, the vulture was able to pull its head out.

This GoPro-Wearing Dog Just Got Violently Attacked By Two Wolves

Klara, a Swedish elkhound, was out hunting moose. She ended up being attacked by wolves in the area.

With its capability to capture first person view footages, GoPro is perhaps one of the most interesting inventions of our time.

Although the camera was initially invented for extreme sports (such as Chile's suicide cycling), people have found a wide application for the technology. In fact these days, it isn’t uncommon to see GoPro being installed on drones to take scenic videos and photos. In some instances, the camera functions like a CCTV that captures footage against an alleged abuser.

For this blog entry though, we’re featuring a GoPro-wearing Swedish elkhound named Klara. The dog was hunting moose just outside Sunne Municipality in Värmland County, Sweden last October 12, 2015 when she suddenly encountered two wolves on its path.

Incredible Dog Protects Rhinos And Hunts Poachers in Africa

Thanks to Diego, the sanctuary has not lost a rhino in over a year.

By

With only one male northern white rhino left in this planet, efforts to eradicate poaching had been strengthened. To discourage illegal hunters, anti-poaching groups had placed cameras on the horns of the critically endangered species while researchers had developed lab-grown horns as an alternative.

Recently, a team in Kenya recruited a new member to stop hunters from savagely killing rhinos for their horns. Diego, an anti-poaching dog from the Ol Pejeta Conservatory in Kenya, is certainly a rhino’s best friend. Reaching a speed of up to 40mph, Diego got what it takes to protect the last male northern white rhino in the world.

Thanks to Diego, the sanctuary has not lost a rhino in over a year.
