ResQte Of The Week (Bonus Friday Edition!)

Cuteporter Morjana C. sent this in earlier today. “First, thank you again for your wonderful site. My daily ray of sunshine (winter,) cool breeze (summer,) and hearty guffaw.

Second, [More importantly. -Ed.]…it’s fire season again. So, there are injured critters. :( And the Lake Tahoe Wildlife Center is doing their part again in caring for injured bear cubs.”

The LTWC is now caring for their 11th Bear Cub this season, the most they’ve ever had at one time. Wanna make a donation like Morjana did? Of course you do.

Snorgling Assembly Line

(Say like Foghorn Leghorn :) Never ah say ah SAY NEVAH in the history of Interspecies Snorgling has their EVAH been such a classic example! [Note- screaming banshee kid alert @ :24. -Ed.]


I’m Tellin’ Ya, Eddie, if I Just Had a Hammer and Some Nails, We’d Be Livin’ Like Kings

“… so the living room, that’s where we’d have a big Dumpster. Tip it, roll in it, do whatever ya want. Maybe also a Foosball table. Then on the second floor, nothin’ but beer and honey.”


Work It, Bear! Work It!

Lookit Bear here. First he gives us the Princess Di eyes act, then decides he can’t wait to be petted and GOES FOR IT.

The Bear Man Of Finland

Who’s a BIG HUGE BROWN BEAR? Who is? YOU are! (Oh, and…so are YOU!)

Meet Sulo Karjalainen, the Bear Man Of Finland. He and his brother run the Kuusamo Large Carnivore Centre, and they’ve got 4 more bears just like these guys.

As seen on MSN UK Video.

CAUGHT ON FILM™: Ultimate Mama Bear ResQte!

People, U just won’t believe this one. Mama Bear discovered her son was playing on a road through Kootenay National Park, which is located in southeastern British Columbia in Canada. Needless to say, she put a stop to that immediately.

U can bet someone is going to get a talking-to. Or a growling-to. (And here’s Stunbunny’s “Bongo Feet,” by request.)

Animal Selfies: Sure, Why Not?

The “selfie” craze shows no sign of slowing down- (though maybe they’re done with it at the White House.) These guys want to get in on the action, too!




(Of course, these aren’t real. They’re part of a National Geographic ad campaign.) Via 123Inspiration.

Tahoe Update #2!

The Little Bear is named Tahoe, and as you recall, she turned up (unannounced) last month at the Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care center. Here’s the latest video, plenty of adorabuhl bumbling-tumbling-fumbling, too. Thanks go to KB.

Updated! Un-BEAR-ably Cute In Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care has a new resident. Someone dropped off this 2.5 month old (now named “Tahoe”) at the Bear League’s doorstep in Homewood. No note or explanation was provided. According to Lake Tahoe News, “‘She is healthy. She is not emaciated. She’s a little dehydrated, but not enough to be worried about,’ Tom Millham with LTWC said.”

Updated! Fresh video!

Bear With Us On This One

These two Siberian bear cubs named Lewis and Clark were rejected by their mom :( at a Chicago zoo. So David and Lana Fechter are raising them ’til they get bigger (and, um, they WILL) and then they’ll move on to the Shalom Wildlife Sanctuary, north of Milwaukee.






(*Saw this one on Bored Panda but then MoonPieWoman also sent it in so she gets the cred.)
