Loyal until the very end…

A A A

This dog’s loyalty to its owner may remind you of Hachiko, Japan’s most famous Akita dog who showed remarkable loyalty to its owner even years after his death.

Paco, owned by a 42-year-old woman who died in a hit and run mishap, was found lying at the scene of the accident.

Heart-wrenching images of the grieving animal was posted by local journalist Russell Colborn on Twitter and quickly spread like wildfire on social media.

According to Jacksonville police, the woman identified as Kelly Black was found dead in Chaffee Road after a semi-truck allegedly hit her in a nearby convenience store parking lot. Apparently, the truck dragged her into the street.

A report by Action News Jax revealed that the driver may not be aware that he had hit Black.

It is believed that Black was walking Paco when the tragedy struck. This makes Paco the only witness to the incident.

After the residents noticed the dog mourning near the crash scene, they contacted the police who notified the woman’s family about Paco.

Paco was a rescue dog from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina whom Black adopted. Since then, the two had been inseparable.

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.
