| Filed under: HealthSickScary!ZooCowGoat

A petting zoo in Minnesota has been linked to an E. Coli outbreak!

Health officials in Minnesota are investigating an E. Coli outbreak linked to a pumpkin farm's petting zoo.

We had no idea petting zoos held any danger worse than maybe getting nipped by a goat!

According to the state's Department of Health three kids between the ages of 1 and 7 have gotten the particularly dangerous O157:H7 strain of the infection.

The chairman of prevention at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville said:

Shepherd Dogs Help Save Goats And Cheetahs At The Same Time!

| Filed under: DogGoatCheetah

In Gobabis, Namibia in Africa there is a delicate balance of nature.

Livestock, like goats, are integral to the economy and society.

But there's always the constant threat of attack because Namibia is home to the world's largest population of wild cheetahs!!

So how do you keep your livestock safe??

Kangal dogs!!

These cutie pooches protect their goat buddies against cheetahs but don't kill them.

They just scare most predators away!

So ever since the dogs were introduced into Namibia 19-years ago, the area has seen the largest population of wild cheetahs in 30 years at 4,000!!

That's incredible! The dogs protect the flock, so there's no longer a reason for farmers to have to kill cheetahs!!

Check out the video (above) to see a cutie guard dog in action!

Hawaiian Rescued Baby Goat And Now Has A New Surf Buddy!

| Filed under: InspirationSurfingPetsCuteness!RescueAwwwwwAmazingGoat

hawaiian surfs up

Surf's up for these two adorables!

When a Hawaiian hunter named Jake Marote came across a baby goat abandoned by its mother - he took the helpless animal in and raised him as his own.

He named the little guy - Billy!

And that's just where the cuteness begins!

Recently, Jake has decided to try and get some rad photographs of his slick surfing moves, and since he takes his baby goat everywhere - that means the little guy's going on the surfboard!

Now the goat doesn't actually ride with Jake when he's hanging ten, but Billy does saddle up next to Jake when he's out on the water. And the water totally doesn't freak the baby goat out!

Probably because he's too busy showering Jake with his baby goat love!!!

Check out the story here to get the cuteness in FULL detail!!!

Two pygmy goats at UK zoo are sickeningly cute! Guess what...more are on the way!!

Two Pygmy Goat kids at Five Sisters Zoo in the UK are SUPER cute!

They're just like regular goats, except fuzzier and tinier… so they're way better.

The best part??

An older goat is heavily pregnant!

So there's gonna be even more babies soon!!

The zoo keepers are expecting her to give birth any day now.

So we can stare at these young goats for now but once those babies come, we won't know what to do with all the cuteness!

Woo! Can't wait to see the little cuties!

Selma Blair took her son Arthur to a petting zoo!!

Selma Blair brought her adorable son Arthur to the local petting zoo in Studio City, but little did they know, they were about to get pooped on!

By a chicken!

This precious moment (above) was captured right before one of those friendly hens let one rip all over Selma's jeans.

Still, though, don't the two of them just look absolutely cutesie-tootsie together? Despite the pooping mishap, Arthur had a blast when he also got to hang out with goats and other furry creatures too!

Check out some more pics (below) of the cutie couple!
