Hey there little guy!

“In this photo taken Aug. 5, 2012 and publicly provided by the police department Hanover, Germany, on Aug. 6, 2012, a squirrel is trapped in a manhole cover in Isenhagen, northern Germany. After they were called by neighbours, police managed to free the animal by using olive oil. (AP Photo/Police Hanover)”

Going through the Denver Post photo blog when I came across this success story! Pretty neat to see his little face alongside pictures of floods and hurricanes.

A leopard cub, a member of a critically endangered species, born at the Denver Zoo this spring can now be seen by the public.
Until now, Makar, an Amur leopard, has been kept behind the scenes with his mother, Dazma, but veterinarians just gave the go ahead for the cub to be viewed at the zoo’s Feline Building. 
Amur leopards are nearly extinct in the wild, with a small number — less than 40 — remaining in eastern Russia.

Six little pigs have found a new friend in a maternal French bulldog  named Baby.
The Lehnitz animal sanctuary outside Berlin says Baby took  straight to the wild boar piglets when they were brought in, three days  old and shivering from cold.  Sanctuary  worker Norbert Damm said as soon as the furry striped piglets were  brought in, Baby ran over and started snuggling them and keeping them  warm, even though they’re already about her size.
