cute: September 2011 Archives


A tiny Rottweiler puppy has been saved by animal welfare officers after falling down a crack in the ground in Texas.

Owners say they were shocked when they realised their month-old pup had disappeared from their house -- but soon heard it's squeals for help from outside.

Following the noise they discovered the puppy had fallen down a crack in the ground caused by severe droughts and could not get out.

Animal welfare officers were called and used pick axes, hammers and a shovel trying to free the whining dog. Which luckily they were able to do.


A video of a confused bird trying to walking the wrong way down an escalator has become a hit online -- with some suggesting it's a metaphor for life.


The video, thought to have been shot in Vancouver, Canada, shows a bird calmly walking the glass doors to a shopping centre among bustling shoppers.

But the bird-brain then attempts to get to a lower level by taking the wrong escalator and finds itself plodding along on the up escalator, never getting anywhere.

It's only when the feathered critter is spooked by shoppers coming towards it, that it turns around and tries to get out. Which it manages while trying to make it look like it meant to do that.


This video shows the touching moment a group of chimpanzees which had been used for laboratory testing saw daylight for the first time.


Having being raised in cages for the purpose of medical testing the chimps range in age from 20 to 30 years old and are understood to have been exposed to HIV and hepatitis.

In 1997 the pharmaceutical company conducting the research was sold and the chimps moved to Gut Aiderbichl Animal Sanctuary, near Salzburg in Austria.

Now a 14-year-bid to introduce the 38 primates to the outdoors has finally taken place and the chimpanzees certainly look happy with the outcome.

275x250.jpg A black and tan Coonhound called Harbour has earned a place in the Guinness World Records Book thanks to his humungous set of ears.

The 8-year-old dog has a monstrous pair of hearing flaps with his left ear measuring 31.1cm long and his right ear, even longer, at 34.3cm.

Owner Jennifer Wert says the colossal ears meant that as a puppy Harbor would struggle -- frequently tripping over then as he ran.

But they also made him a bit of a celeb in his hometown of Boulder, Colorado and now the world thanks to getting featured in the famous record book.


A video of a bully cat stuffing another pussy into a cardboard box and then trapping it by sitting on top of the box has become an online hit.

The 90 second clip starts off with a white kitty sitting and playing in an discarded open box as couple of other kitties entertain themselves.

But then a grey moggie strolls up behind the pen open and jumps up on the open flap, closing the box on top of the white cat -- trapping it in the box.

The grey cat then jumps up on the box and sits on top of the lid as the white bullied cat tries to escape… without much look.
