Fairy tale ending': Owl saved after high-speed collision with truck
'I got out and had a look, and its wing was sticking out the grille'
Image
This great horned owl was hit by a truck and managed to survive hours embedded in a frigid grille before being rescued. (Fish and Wildlife Enforcement )



http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/ ... -1.3907189

"It was a cold, full-moon evening and the owl just popped out, hopped out of the box, surveyed its surroundings and it just took off," Rinkel said.

"And it was quite neat, because there was a full moon and the owl just flew off directly into the moon and it was some sort of fairy tale ending.

"It was quite amazing."


and now out there terrorizing the mice on this Canadian winter night....:coffee:

Turkey optimistic despite 42-0 ice hockey defeat to Russia

42-0 but no problem, we learned a lot. Rule number one; don't play with Russia for a few decades, rule number two; learn ice hockey.

Dishwasher becomes part-owner of top restaurant Noma
1 March 2017

Employee Ali Sonko poses in the kitchen of Noma restaurant in CopenhagenImage copyrightEPA
Image
Mr Sonko has lived in Denmark for 34 years
A kitchen porter has been made a co-owner of the four-time winner of the world's best restaurant.
Ali Sonko, 62, is now a partner at Noma, the Copenhagen restaurant where he has been working since it opened.
Mr Sonko, from the Gambia, was unveiled as one of three new partners, alongside two of its managers.
The two-Michelin starred restaurant closed its doors after 14 years at the current location, and will reopen in December as an "urban farm".
"Ali is the heart and soul of Noma," chef Rene Redzepi explained to friends gathered to celebrate the restaurant at the weekend, according to Danish newspaper Berlingske.
"I don't think people appreciate what it means to have a person like Ali in the house. He is all smiles, no matter how his 12 children fare.
"And, by the way, my own father was also named Ali, and he too worked as a dishwasher when he came to Denmark."
Posting a picture of Mr Sonko and fellow new co-owners restaurant managers Lau Richter and James Spreadbury to Instagram, Mr Redzepi added: "This is only the beginning, as we plan to surprise several more of our staff with a piece of the walls that they have chosen to work so hard within."

Six steers that ran amok on the streets of north St. Louis last week after escaping from a neighborhood slaughterhouse have a new lease on life — and a possible future grazing on the lush pasture of a Tennessee animal sanctuary.

The steers — including Chico, who dodged police and animal control officers during a dramatic five-hour bid for freedom that included a crash through an iron fence — were picked up Monday morning from the slaughterhouse, Star Packing Co., and taken to an area farm.


Cattle that escaped from St. Louis slaughterhouse are headed to animal sanctuary

That was kinda feelgood...for what the Gentle Barn is doing

The Gentle Barn has animal sanctuaries in Southern California and Tennessee. According to its website, the organization rescues animals from severe abuse and neglect that are “too old, sick, lame, or scared to be adopted into homes. The Barn is home to horses, donkeys, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens, llamas, peacocks, emus, cats and dogs who are allowed to live out their lives in peace.”

The Gentle Barn also works with disadvantaged children on its ranches, and uses animal husbandry as part of its therapeutic healing philosophy. So Weiner said the organization will work with the steers to ensure that they are comfortable with humans and can be cared for by youths and adults.
