People Are Building Mini Picnic Tables for Squirrels During Coronavirus Lock Down

People Are Building Mini Picnic Tables for Squirrels During Coronavirus Lock Down

Pictures of a homemade picnic table for squirrels are going viral on social media, and now, everybody is making them!

The craze started after 43-year-old plumber Rick Kalinowski posted photographs and a video of a tiny table he made for the squirrels visiting his yard during the coronavirus quarantine. The table is attached to the garden fence and has two benches just in case some sociable squirrels want to have a lunch party!

“I built the picnic bench and mounted it outside my living room window on the fence so I can watch the squirrels eat while I have my coffee every morning,” explained Kalinowski. “I wake up at sunrise and have done [so] for years, just to feed the squirrels and fill the bird feeders. I make my coffee, put on the morning news and watch everyone eat.”

“I buy a variety of nuts and seeds for the squirrels along with fresh-cut fruit; it brings me happiness especially during these uncertain times,” he added. “The morning I made the video, the squirrels just looked so happy and cute eating.”

The images of squirrels munching on nuts and seeds at their new table inspired many other people in lockdown to put together their own squirrel-feeding environments in a bid to conquer boredom and help wildlife during this difficult time.

Shelter dog refuses to be adopted without his food bowl

Farah R. | Positive Outlook

Staff from the animal rescue site have shared photos of one shelter dog who developed a strange habit of carrying his food bowl around everywhere he went, and the pictures will surely capture your heart!

A dog named Oliver was found as a stray in Memphis, Tennessee after he refused to leave a family’s backyard. Desperate for help, they contacted the nearest animal control office to ask for assistance in handling the elusive dog.

The pup’s playful personality immediately showed when the officers arrived to collect him. Whenever one of them would get close, he would jump over the fence and run out of the yard, treating the whole situation as a game. Oliver was relentless, so the team decided to set up a humane trap to capture him. Finally, after the long chase, the dog was caught and brought to Memphis Animal Services.

From the moment he arrived at the shelter, the staff instantly knew that Oliver once belonged to a home. He was extremely smart, and he was a big lover of food and treats! He knew that if he behaved well and listened, he would be showered with lots of them.

Katie Pemberton, a community engagement specialist at Memphis Animal Services, told The Dodo:

“I met him the first day he came in, and he sat for me immediately before I even showed him I had treats. Then, of course, as soon as the treats came out, he was even more eager to sit. The more he got to know me, the more he would press himself up against the bars of his kennels to let me pet him.”

Apparently, Oliver loved food so much, that he quickly developed an attachment for the thing that held it – his food bowl! Wherever he went, the shelter staff would see him carrying around the container with his mouth.

“The very first night he got here, our field supervisor passed by his kennel in our ACO intake room and noticed him with his bowl in his mouth,” Katie said. “His cute trick was very effective because she gave him more food! Then when he moved to his permanent kennel, he kept doing it. He had his bowl in his mouth most of the time.”

The staff from the animal rescue site surmised that the act might have been taught to him as a cute trick by his former owner. Another possibility was that he lacked food at one point in his life, and he was afraid of losing sight of his food bowl because he might not be fed again.

Throughout his days as a shelter dog, Oliver continued to carry his food bowl around with him everywhere he went, and the staff thought that it was extremely adorable! They started taking pictures of him whenever he did it, and they posted the snapshots on their social media for everyone to enjoy.

Unsurprisingly, Oliver captured lots of hearts across the country with his food bowl carrying trick!

“We received a very unusual amount of inquiries about Oliver after his photos went viral — I wish every dog had that many people interested in adopting them,” Katie shared.

Because of the photos posted by the animal rescue site, the huge amount of online attention that Oliver got led to his eventual adoption. On April 16, his new family arrived at the shelter to take him home, and of course, he’s not going without his food bowl!

Now, Oliver wouldn’t need to worry about going hungry again, for his food bowl – and his heart – will always be full.

‘Very Angry Badger’ Seizes Part Of 500-Year-Old Scottish Castle

It’s like something from a Monty Python sketch: Portions of a 16th-century Scottish castle were recently closed to the public due to a “very angry badger.”

The tunnel at Craignethan Castle was closed last week because of the animal, said Historic Scotland, which manages the property. The badger apparently wandered in from the nearby forest, per the BBC.

It’s not clear what the animal did to leave the impression that it was “very angry”:

Observers on Twitter suggested feeding mushrooms, peanuts and peanut butter to the badger, but cameras sent in on Saturday revealed that Historic Scotland’s cat food plot may have worked, as the creature appeared to have fled the scene.

However, the badger dug through loose soil and stonework, leaving behind a mess, the Scotsman reported. Although the tunnel will stay shuttered while it’s cleaned, the rest of the castle will be open to tourists.

Built in 1530, Craignethan is noted for its fortifications, which were built to protect it from artillery and considered ahead of their time. Although a rampart was demolished in 1579, its ruins remain on the grounds.

Badgers are Scotland’s largest wild carnivores. While they are generally not aggressive toward humans, a wounded or cornered animal may attack ― and in a tunnel such as the one at Craignethan, a badger encountering a human could indeed feel cornered.

Donkey Chews on Super-Car | News of the Horse

Dale Williams

Germany – A donkey took a bite on a super-car, and it cost his owner $6,800. Vistus will never know how much his bite on a $365,000 car cost his owner.

“The donkey probably thought the car was a carrot on wheels. I’m not mad at him,” the car’s owner Markus Zahn, said. Zahn had parked his car too close to Vistus’ pen. “I looked into the rear-view mirror and suddenly saw a pair of fluffy ears,” Zahn said. “And then I heard a strange sound. The sound came from a donkey, who was gnawing at my fender.”

Donkeys, like other members of the equine family, are colorblind, and it unlikely he actually believed the orange car was a carrot.

Vistus’ owner refused to reimburse Zahn for the damage, stating Zahn should have chosen a better parking spot. The court sided with Zahn and forced Vistus’ owner to reimburse Zahn for the damage done to his car.

Baby Orca Surprises Swimmers At New Zealand Beach – The Dodo


Mischievous Baby Orca Sneaks Up On Unsuspecting Swimmers

“We won’t be forgetting this anytime soon.”
By Sarah V Schweig
October 24, 2017

It’s beach season in New Zealand, and hundreds of people were enjoying the sun and surf at Hahei Beach last week — when some of them got a very unexpected visitor.
Orca surprises beachgoers

Four wild orcas were thought to be hunting stingrays off the coast when one of the baby orcas became curious and swam right up to people wading in the clear water. And the sight of a dorsal fin coming straight at them sent the swimmers scurrying for the shore.

Orcas are very intelligent and social animals who stick with their families their whole lives, and baby orcas like this one learn to hunt from their parents and relatives in their pod.

So maybe the beachgoers were right to be startled by the baby orca — he might have been practicing his newly acquired skills on them.

But the swimmers had no hard feelings toward the little orca. “He’s just playing,” one person can be heard saying.

“It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see such a beautiful animal up close in the wild,” Kelly Lindsay told local news. “We won’t be forgetting this anytime soon.”
