There's a big football game between LSU and Alabama this weekend and in anticipation, LSU coach Les Miles was featured in a billboard…

…fist bumping Cane, the mascot for Raising Cane's chicken fingers.

The game is apparently a huge one because its the first time that the #1 and #2 teams will meet.

All we know is that is one cool looking dog! Also, best part, the paw and fist move and constantly bump one another. Ha!

ASPCA Lends A Hand To Tornado Victims

ASPCA Lends A Hand To AL Tornado Victims

Some good news for Alabama!

The Greater Birmingham Humane Society (GBHS) in Alabama has purchased a new emergency transport rig for tornado relief efforts as a result of a $128,000 grant provided by the ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).

The new emergency transport vehicle will greatly improve the organization’s ability to provide assistance to the affected areas of Alabama, especially parts of Tuscaloosa, which was ravaged in late April by the worst tornado outbreak in the nation’s history.

The rig will include space for animal transport cages, an on-board veterinary work space, and room for the storage of pet care supplies.

"The recent tornadoes in Alabama have created an immense need for the care of animals that have been displaced and abandoned,” said Jodi Lytle Buckman, senior director of community initiatives for the ASPCA.

“Requests for transfers and supplies have been steadily increasing since the outbreak of dangerous weather, and we are pleased to be able to offer aid to local organizations like the Greater Birmingham Humane Society.”

For more information on the Greater Birmingham Humane Society and how you can help with the disaster relief efforts, please visit www.gbhs.org.

Hundreds Of Puppies Displaced By Alabama's Tornado

Filed under: Sad SadPuppyDog

Heartbreaking.

Hundreds of animals were separated from their owners in the tornadoes that swept through Alabama that killed more than 300 people.

Hundreds more most perished as the multiple twisters cut a deadly path through several Southern states.

Hundreds of animals have ended up at the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter. Many of them are puppies separated from both their mother and owner.

The shelter's assistant director, said: "These dogs are so stressed out, many of them are scared and they just don't want to come up to the front of the cage. They're just as traumatized as the humans."

She said she has found the days since the storms struck to be especially emotional.

She has been heartened, however, by the mounds of supplies that have been donated and the volunteers who come to give their time.

Now, 300 Birds Found Dead In Alabama!

Filed under: TV NewsScary!Birds

More dead birds have been found in yet ANOTHER state.

300 black birds speckled the white snow along an Alabama highway this week.

At this rate, we're starting to accept mass birds falling from the sky as a normal daily occurrence, but at least they seem to be dropping in fewer numbers as the weeks go on.

A wildlife expert thinks that the ruffled and scattered feathers around the creepy scene suggest some kind of physical trauma, like a tractor trailer hitting the flock, may be responsible.

Finally! An explanation that kinda, sorta makes sense, but then again, why are 300 birds flying low enough to get hit by traffic?

It seems to us (but we're not scientists) that these birds were already on their way to the ground before they got hit.

Check out the video above for all the details and give us your thoughts on this mystery!
