A little insight into the C.O. Editorial Process. This email from Laura W. comes in AND IT GOES UP AS FAST AS OUR LITTLE FINGERS CAN TYPE.

(Boulder County Colorado Sheriff’s Office Deputy Sophie Berman was out and about when a Northern Saw Whet Owl decided it was time for a face to face. Or, um, a face to beak.)

“Hi C.O.! I emailed you a link from the Boulder Daily Camera, and there was no spot to add a message. Nederland, CO is in the mountains SW of Boulder. (And the home of the annual Frozen Dead Guy Days.) How cute is this guy? How come I can’t happenstance upon something like this, ever?” -Laura W.

Did you like the Bunnehs Of The Sea earlier this morning? Great. ‘CAUSE NOW YOU CAN BUY ‘EM AS SLIPPERS!!! (We do not make this stuff up.) Now, this link is for a Korean online store, so I don’t have any specifics, and my doggone Chrome Browser refuses to translate. Maybe someone can help?



Thanks to Sandy B.

THIS JUST IN: UK Duckling ResQte Of The Week!

Maintenance worker Gary Bartoszewski was going about his day when what did he see but BIG TROUBLE! Some bebeh ducksters had taken a dive down a sewer grate in Doncaster, South Yorkshire UK. (This happens far too often! Don’t they read the signs? Whoops, one more.)

Naturally, Gary sprang into action, and was able to haul the little guys up and out, to be reunited with Mom!

THIS JUST IN: Dramatic ResQte Of The Week At Ft. Drum!

1511554_362874227239917_1220258369527593713_n[Say like Sheriff John Bunnell on World’s Wildest Police Videos:] “ just doesn’t get ANY more real than THIS. Ft. Drum, Jefferson County, New York….”

Info just in from Nicole S. “I’m a film instructor with I Was There Film Workshops, a nonprofit organization that teaches free, therapeutic filmmaking workshops to military veterans coping with PTSD. Last week (June 11th) we had a workshop at Fort Drum in NY. I was not on this workshop, and that’s unfortunate as we had THE CUTEST CRISIS EVER.

“A team of students and instructors noticed a TINY GRAY KITTEN who had climbed inside and gotten stuck in the side of an inactive Cobra helicopter on base. The helicopter was in a museum of preserved (but not in use) vehicles on base.”

“After feeding the poor thing some milk via drinking straw (yes, there are photos of that,) they were able to finally free the kitten by opening an access panel on the side.”

“A passing couple- a soldier and his wife- who had become invested in the rescue took little Cobra (who seems fine, if sleepy) to a local vet to get checked out!”

[*Note- we’ve emailed Nicole to get a Cobra Status Update. -Ed.]
