275x250.jpgA police officer has escorted a group of ducklings to safety after coming across them on a busy road. And become an internet hero.

Glenn Eppler had been driving in Fort Myers when he encountered the unusual suspects - ten tiny ducklings - holding up traffic.

Footage from his dash-cam shows the officer jumping out of his vehicle and trying to guide the little feathered critters to safety.

But it wasn't as easy as he expected and the birds - which had somehow dodged traffic - were uncooperative.

Luckily a passer-by helped the officer to pick up the tiny ducklings and moved them to somewhere a little safer where they were reunited with their mother.

275x250.jpg Our favourite cross-eyed sooth-sayer opossum has started making her predictions about who will win Academy Awards… and it's good news for Natalie Portman.

Heidi the cross-eyed opossum, from the Leipzig Zoo in Germany, has become a hit in the US where she is appearing on the TV show Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The confused-looking animal is being confronted by Oscar statuettes with the head of Academy Awards nominees affixed to the head and asked to touch the one she thinks will win.

After spending a considerable amount of time thinking about it, Heidi has so far predicted that Natalie Portman will win the Best Actress Oscar… though we are not sure that's the one she was looking at.

A cat burglar who stole 600 items has been outed as an actual cat, after a night-vision camera was used to capture footage of the feline.

Residents in San Francisco had initially wondered what was happening when clothes, teddy-bears and other small items started disappearing.

But it soon became apparent the crook was a kleptomaniac kitty called Dusty who kept returning home with other peoples belongings.

After setting up night-vision camera they recorded footage of him going out under the cover of night and dragging back his loot.

Over the past three years the cat is said to have stole 600 items from neighbours and is partial to women's bathing costumes… naughty kitty.

275x250.jpg Staff at a pub in Staffordshire say they don't mind that one of their regulars always has a long face -- because it's not like Basil could do anything about it.

The nine-year-old Welsh Cob stallion has become a regular at the Meynell Ingram Arms in Burton where he is allowed to walk right in and up to the bar.

Over the past few years he's even said to have started enjoying the occasional tipple of Marson's Pedigree which is always served to him in his own glass.

Manager Guy Wallis insists locals don't mind sharing the bar with the 14.2 hands pony… though there have been complaints he doesn't ever get a round in.

275x250.jpgZoo keepers in the US say they've been shocked to see a wild bald eagle repeatedly visit and make friends with one of their captive birds.

Bosses at Orange County Zoo say the bird has started spending every morning and evening perched nearby the enclosure of a female bald eagle.

They say the rare visitor, believed to be a male, can spend hours squawking with their 6-year-old who cannot be released due to an eye injury.

While many visitors insist his constant presence is a sign of true love, others claim it's simply because he's worked out there's an abundant food supply at the zoo.

In other words what they are trying to say it that he's a typical bloke.
