Oct 15, 2018

This is the brutal moment three lionesses attempt to teach their cubs how to take down a huge buffalo – but it luckily manages to escape. A sequence of photographs show the buffalo scarpering as one of the lionesses leaps on to its back with her teeth bared. Another shows her clinging on to the buffalo’s front legs with her claws digging in but the Cape Buffalo, which can weigh between 500 to 1,000kg, manages to flee unharmed. The images were taken at the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania in July. Photographer Michael Mansell, from Tucson, Arizona, said: “This was a massive Cape buffalo and the mother lionesses were training their cubs showing them how to take down a buffalo. “If […]

GENTLE GIANT RESCUE PUP IS SPITTING IMAGE OF THE GRUFFALO

Oct 15, 2018

  Dogue de Bordeaux Maddie’s bottom jaw juts out meaning her pointy canines are permanently on show just like the tusks of the famed children’s book character. While her protruding pearly whites might make her look like the fictional beast, there is nothing monstrous about two-year-old Maddie – other than the fact she is a ‘slobber monster’. In fact the four-stone fur baby, who is on the lookout for her forever home, couldn’t be more chilled out or have more love to give, according to her 34-year-old foster mum Dawn Hughes. Dawn, of Birkenhead, Merseyside, said: “As soon as I heard there was a Dogue de Bordeaux that needed fostering I offered to take her in because they are such […]

Jun 6, 2018

A schoolboy who has amassed a collection of 150 vacuum cleaners is cleaning up after turning his obsession into a ‘suck-cessful’ business – even flogging hoovers to his teachers.

And now he’s turning a profit fixing up old machines and selling them, even to his secondary school teachers, while carrying out repairs on just about every range of cleaner on the market. A favourite with his friends’ parents, the 13-year-old will often hoover when he’s invited over for tea so he can diagnose and fix any issues with the machines. He’s also […]

Vigil for Hillsborough Victims

May 6, 2016

Thousands of people attended a poignant commemoration to mark the end of the Hillsborough inquests at Liverpool’s St George’s Hall.   More than 20,000 people came together for the evening of tributes, music, speeches and moments of reflection in memory of Hillsborough’s 96 victims.   It came after an inquest jury ruled the 96 Liverpool FC fans were unlawfully killed in the 1989 tragedy and supporters played no part in causing the disaster.     The verdict of the new inquest into the 1989 tragedy is a huge victory in a long-fought battle for justice by the families of those who lost their lives.   The victims’ families and survivors have fought for 27 years against South Yorkshire police claims that misbehaving supporters caused […]

Parcel Farce

Nov 27, 2015

A couple were left with a mountain of cardboard in their living room after a supermarket delivered their new dinner set in 48 SEPARATE boxes. Joanne and Billy Murphy were stunned when each plate, bowl and mug in the 24-piece set they ordered online from Tesco showed up in their own individual boxes, which were then inside even bigger boxes. Already unimpressed at having waited 14 days for the goods to arrive, Joanna took to social media to vent her fury as despite the extreme packaging, five items still broke during delivery. The boxes took up so much space that the family, from Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, couldn’t see the living room floor once the items were unwrapped

Frolicing polar bear

Sep 10, 2015

This polar bear has been watching The Jungle Book too often as this series of stunning photographs captures him kicking back and relaxing in a bed of flowers – and trying a few. Just like the Bear Necessities as sung by Disney favourite Baloo, this polar bear forgot about his worries and his strife – by lounging around with his legs in the air on this island in Hudson Bay, Canada. The pictures were captured by granddad-of-two Dennis Fast, 72, on a tiny 1km wide island who claims he had to pinch himself when he saw the bear playing.   The retired teacher had to meticulously plan the shoot for YEARS as due to the island being so small it […]
