Dogs are highly intelligent creatures and you’d be surprised with what they can do. One recent incident in Thailand shows us exactly that as an injured golden retriever received popularity after he walked straight to the vet to receive treatment.
According to reports, the dog accidentally hurt his eye and he was later found at the door of the Petto Street clinic, a vet clinic in Lam Lukka, Pathum Thani. The dog’s left eye, as can be seen in the photos below, was covered in blood.
This poor golden retriever took himself to a vet clinic and got treatment.
Fortunately for him, a veterinarian was present at the clinic.
Siramanee Wongpitayadisai, the vet on duty, immediately patched up the dog’s eye. She also placed a cone on the animal’s head to make sure that he won’t mess around with his injured eye.
The vet even gave him a nickname.
She called him ‘Den’ which is Thai shorthand for golden retriever, according to a website.
She likewise shared the story on social media in the hopes of finding the dog’s owner.
In a Facebook post, Siramanee wrote:
“While I was busy with a customer, I found Den standing outside the clinic, smiling, with his face covered in blood. I thought the owner had taken him here, but no one showed up after the dog.
“We took him in and performed a checkup. His left eyelid was torn.
“Please share this post. We want him to meet his owner. We feel so sorry for him.”
Thanks to the lady vet’s post, the owner was eventually located. The owner said that the dog unexpectedly went out and may have hurt himself in the process.
Den’s story has since been covered by Thai media. Many have praised the animal for being smart.
I mean, yeah, it’s not everyday we hear about a dog going to a vet clinic by himself!
Kudos to you, Den, and kudos to Siramanee for taking care of this special pooch.
Stonefish: The World’s Most Venomous Fish, Also Quite A Deadly Delicacy
The world’s most dangerous fish might also be the most delicious you’ll ever taste.
The Philippines is popular for its marine biology and it is a well-known fact that its surrounding oceans inhabited by thousands and thousands more of aquatic species than elsewhere in the world. For this, the archipelago has become a top tourist destination for beach lovers, most especially to divers who wish to witness an amazing aquatic environment. Lurking beneath the majestic, blue waters of Philippines, though, is the most venomous fish and one of the deadliest species in the world. This simply proves that the biggest creature underwater is not necessarily the largest threat.
The stonefish is known as the master of camouflage. It blends perfectly with its surroundings and this is all because of its brown or grey skin with red or yellow patches, making it look like it’s a part of the coral reef. It can also look like an ordinary stone, so you have to wear your wet shoes to be protected from these deceiving creatures.
If sharks and sting rays scare you, you might want to be more careful around this smaller fish.
This fish grows to a length of only up to 20 inches and can weigh up to five pounds. It is armored with 13 sharp dorsal fin spines, with each containing two venom glands that release some toxins made of proteins when the fish is disturbed or stepped on. This substance is so potent that it can kill its victim in just less than an hour – depending on how deep the penetration is. ...
Villagers Save Pregnant Cow From A Hungry Giant Anaconda
These humans just showed this giant anaconda that it shouldn’t mess with their pregnant livestock.
Infuriated humans unleashed revenge on a giant anaconda that was trying to feed on a pregnant cow at a muddy swamp. While the predator was trying to squeeze the life out of its prey, these humans tried to play superheroes to scare the anaconda away.
A hungry 13-foot anaconda found a perfect prey on a pregnant cow having its good day time bath at a swamp in Venezuela. Having gotten the chance, the giant snake quickly wrapped its body onto the cow and started squeezing it to death.
This giant anaconda probably thought it found its best meal for the day.
Around nine people though intervened the food chain and decided to fight the anaconda to save the pitiful pregnant cow. The bout was recorded in a video and was posted on Youtube last year, gaining over 11 million views. Some commenters were worried that the snake will come back after the humans and other expletive ladened comments expressed empathy to the snake that was only trying to “satisfy its hunger.”...
Wealthy Brits Install Spikes On Trees To Stop Birds From Pooping On Their Luxury Cars
To some people, material things are just more important than the life of innocent animals.
Some trees in an elite neighborhood in Bristol, England were installed with “anti-bird” spikes by wealthy residents to protect their pricey cars from bird droppings. This has, however, enraged other residents and environmentalists as these well-off people are denying birds of their habitat.
Spikes used to prevent birds from nesting on building ledges over public sidewalks in Bristol were reportedly installed on two trees planted in an exclusive Clifton area of the city. The area is also situated near the wildlife-rich regions, Downs and the Avon gorge, making locals and environmentalists enraged. In fact, one Twitter user condemned the spike installation, and calling it a “war on wildlife.” Furthermore, a local Green Party councilor described the trees “uninhabitable to birds.”
People were guessing what these spikes are for. Apparently, they were nailed there to shoo away birds from nesting on the trees.
Although this has sparked indignation, the Bristol City council spokesperson said they don’t have the power to stop the residents from nailing spikes on trees. This follows the fact that the trees in question were planted on their private properties and were already installed for years now....
