Kayaker Gets DANGEROUSLY Close To Humpback Whale!

Filed under: Scary!WhalesCrazzzzy

Whales are beautiful creatures and it's amazing to see them up close.

But how close is TOO close??

We think we'd draw the line at having a humpback rise up from under you, nearly lifting your kayak out of the water!

Yeah, that sounds a bit too close.

Berthold Hinrichs was out kayaking back on January 10th near Senja, Norway.

He was floating among orcas and humpback whales and it must've been so beautiful… until one got a little too close for comfort!

He said:

"They were hunting herring and they are very careful not to harm you … one humpback came up just beside me … [then] I was completely on the back of him."

Wow! That must've been terrifying!

We'd be afraid of being swallowed whole!

Check out the video (above) to see how close his whale encounter really was!

Ha!

It is always funny when bigger animals are afraid of smaller ones.

Especially when a Jack Russell terrier is afraid of a little duckling!

So cute.

Cowardly Cop Shoots Dog For Being Off Leash

Filed under: Attack!DogCrazzzzy

guy-dog-shot-cop.jpg

An 18-year-old Radford University student and his dog were with a friend and his dog at a dog park.

The two dogs were off leash, which breaks a city ordinance, and they were running around by a riverbank in a secluded section of the park.

After an argument with another dog owner about his dog not having a leash, the cop was called to the scene.

Once the officer arrived on the scene, the man's dog "charged" the officer so the cop pulled his gun and shot the dog in the leg.

The young man said:

"There was no barking or growling, that's the thing. They weren't at a full sprint; they were jogging toward him wagging their tails.

As soon as I see them, I start screaming. Before I could get any words out, the shot went off."

The cop did help take the dog to the vet's office at least.

The dog will survive his injuries, he just has to wear a cast for a few months.

The dog was a 70-pound pointer terrier so we think this cop freaked out because he saw a bully breed dog and thought he was going to die.

The cop even had a taser and pepper spray on hand but he decided to use his pistol.

This is ridiculous.

We hope there's disciplinary action for making such a poor decision.

How To Spot Anxiety In Your Dog

Filed under: HealthDogTips

dog-scared-anxiety.jpg

Many of us dog owners can tell when our pooch is feeling afraid.

The telltale pacing and tucking their tail between their legs is a dead giveaway.

But dogs can also feel anxiety just like humans do, except with dogs, it's harder to tell.

So the American Kennel Club (AKC) has a list of signs that might help you spot if your dog is feeling anxious.

Panting: A common misconception is that dogs pant only because they’re hot. Actually, many dogs will pant when they’re stressed or anxious. This happens because your dog’s adrenaline is released in response to a scary situation, and his pulse quickens and his breathing speeds up.

Yawning: Dogs may yawn as a sign that they are conflicted or uncertain about the situation they’re in. For example, your dog might want to jump off the groomer’s table because he’s anxious or afraid, but he’s been trained not to do that. Yawning signifies the conflict of continuing in the uncomfortable situation.

Lip tension: Dogs often pull their lips back slightly when they’re anxious. It can appear as if he’s smiling or just some creases as the corners of his mouth.

Displacement behaviors: Your dog may display inappropriate behavior because they are anxious or excited about something else. Such behaviors include your dog humping your leg when a visitor comes to the house – he is displacing his feelings about the guest arriving.

So just look for these signs and you'll be able to spot anxiety and help calm your dog down, keeping your pet happy and healthy.
