The King Goose

Just FYI, this took place a few months back.

I came upon a group of cars in the middle of a four lane road. At first I couldn’t understand why they were stopped. As I looked ahead I saw a flock of geese crossing the street. And let me tell ya - they were taking their own sweet time. One goose even stopped in the middle of the road and with an intimidating look stared steadily at the cars in front of it. The flock ruled the road and were not going to be moved until they were ready. It was very funny to see. They all had a lot of character and all in all it took about four minutes for the nine of them to cross. Which when you think about it four minutes is a long time.

Bird Hit by Car

A picture is worth a thousand words.

A flock of birds was spending time searching for food and playing on a main road. All of a sudden, a truck sped through the street. One of the brids was hit. Another bird flew over to her immediately. He stayed beside her and brought her food.

The photographer said he couldn't shoot any longer. The photographer was so worried that the living bird was going to get hurt by passing cars. So he picked up the dead bird and left it at the roadside. The live one still lingered at a nearby tree and refused to leave.

Here a male bird is with the injured female.

The male brought her food again but found her dead. He tried to move her. A rarely-seen effort for swallows.

People saw these pictures in in America, Europe and Asia. It is said that the photographer sold these pictures for a nominal fee to the most famous newspaper in France. All copies of that newspaper were sold out on the day these pictures were published.

The abandoned monkey who has found love with a pigeon

They're an odd couple in every sense but a monkey and a pigeon have become inseparable at an animal sanctuary in China.

The 12-week-old macaque - who was abandoned by his mother - was close to death when it was rescued on Neilingding Island, in Goangdong Province.

After being taken to an animal hospital his health began to improve but he seemed spiritless - until he developed a friendship with a white pigeon.

monkeypig The macaque nestles his head against his feathered friend.

The blossoming relationship helped to revive the macaque who has developed a new lease of life, say staff at the sanctuary.

Now the unlikely duo are never far from each other's side, but they aren't the only ones to strike up an unusual friendship.

Earlier this year a pig adopted a tiger cub and raised him along with her piglets because his mother couldn't feed him.

And in 2005 a baby deer named Mi-Lu befriended lurcher Geoffrey at the Knowsley Animal Park in Merseyside after she was rejected by her mother.

Road Kill

I seem to always have strange stories about run-ins with animals. So here is such an event.

I left work around 8:30 p.m. and as I was driving home I got a phone call from my mom. After talking to her for a while we both decide to meet at IHOP for a late dinner. We get to the restaurant around 9 or so and talk for a few hours. Around 12:00 we both notice the time and both have to be at work the next day.

We both turn out of the IHOP on to SantaFe. and start heading toward 89th street. I am following her in my car then all of a sudden I see her brake lights come on and swerve in the road. I come up closer to where she had been I see standing in the middle of the road a Donkey. I ask myself “What the mess is a donkey doing in the middle of the street?” I see a house with two horses in the front yard. So I think to myself that the Donkey must be theirs.

I do a U-turn and park on the side of the street. I knock on the front door and a man answers. I ask him if he owns the huge animal in the middle of the road. He tells me that it’s not his but his neighbors across the street.

Not sure what to do we both decide that he will get in his truck and try to get the donkey into his front yard that has a gate around it, and I will go and get his neighbor who owns the donkey. I run over to his neighbor’s house and notice that there is a dog sitting very still in front yard. The dog is changed up but I am not sure how long that chain is. So I yell and try to get the attention of the people inside the house.

After a lot of loud noise I give up and go help the man in the truck round up the donkey. After we get the donkey in his yard I tell him that I could not talk to his neighbor because of the dog grading the door. He tells me that his dad knows the people and is going to call them to pick up there donkey.

He thanks me for all my help and I go on my way. It latter occurs to me, and I start laughing about it. “I WAS CHASING A DONKEY THROUGH THE STREETS OF OKC.” How often does that happen?

Another Animal Run In

Most days while I am driveling home from work I will see animals on the side of the road and fell a little pull of sadness come over me. I always try to help prevent those roadside miss haps from happening.

I am not sure of the day but I was driving home like every other day when I saw a little black spot in the road. I am not sure what it is, so I get closer and closer and come to see that it’s a turtle. I drive past it and tell myself to go back and pick it up.

I turned the car around and headed back. I ended up passing the turtle 2 or 3 times before I was able to pull over. I pulled over about half a mile or so from where the turtle was and started walking to meet it. “Risking my life on this road for a dumb turtle.” Once I reach the turtle I realize a small problem. The road were on is between a hill so on each side of the road is a steep cliff about 15 feet or so high, and too steep for me to climb.

I thought to myself, do I take the turtle with me and release it some where else or do I try and make it safe here in case it has a family to take care of. I decide it best to leave it. With all my might I throw the turtle up and over to the top of the cliff trying to make sure it is far enough over that it won’t walk back and roll down the hill into the road.

After I threw it, I stayed a while so that I could hear it start to move. I needed to be sure that it’s not stuck on its back.

The next few days on the way to and from work I look to see if my little friend is back on the road, but he is not. So as far as I know the little turtle is doing well.

Thanks turtle for the trouble!!!
