A runaway horse in Ireland was rescued earlier this week after bolting more than a mile into the Atlantic Ocean, according to officials.

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) Bundoran Lifeboat Station said on Facebook the incident happened on Monday on a beach in Donegal.

“This was another callout with a good outcome,” said lifeboat helmsman Killian O’Kelly. “Animals are as prone as people to get in trouble in the water and we were glad to be able to help out on this occasion.”

The RNLI said it responded to reports of a horse in the water off Murvagh Beach near Donegal town shortly after 5:40 p.m.

When crews arrived, they found the horse over a mile from shore, and gradually coaxed it back to its owner waiting on the beach.

Footage released by the RNLI Bundoran Lifeboat Station showed the rescue boat approaching the horse.

It took crew members nearly an hour to get the animal to head back to dry land.

RNLI press officer Shane Smyth told the Irish Times the town’s lifeboat crew was unable to get too close to the animal out of fears it could have jumped into the boat.

“It could have turned out much worse, particularly if the horse’s head had gone under the water, it would not have been a nice outcome,” he told the news outlet.

Don’t have a cow, man.

Remarkable photos show a group of cows walking along a nature reserve, including one looking to get a free meal, British news agency SWNS reports.

Three women were at Sheep’s Green and Coe Fen Nature Reserve in Cambridge when a group of cows, including a dark brown cow with black and white markings, walked up to them and began to nose around their bags.

The photos were taken at the 40-acre reserve, which is also home to sheep, according to the reserve’s website.

It’s fairly common to see cows roaming the reserve, which is also the “perfect habitat for Herons, King Fishers and even Egrets,” the website added.

The hungry cows were not the only ones spotted Wednesday. A cow with black speckles was seen walking slowly behind two women pushing young children in strollers, while an all-black cow was spotted eating some leaves at the end of a tree branch.

Photographer takes remarkable photos of otter eating an entire fish whole

At least this otter didn’t bite off more than it could chew.

A photographer in England captured remarkable photos of an otter swallowing a rare scorpionfish whole, British news agency South West News Service reports.

Anita Crook, who is a marine mammal medic, said she was able to snap the images while walking alongside the River Tweed on June 15.

PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURES REMARKABLE IMAGES OF ENDANGERED BUTTERFLY FLYING OFF FLOWER

“I’m always looking out for otters and thought I would try taking some pictures of them fishing in the estuary,” Crook, 56, said. “I think some of the best pictures are of him with his mouth wide open swallowing the whole fish. You can only see the tail of the fish sticking out. I think this one’s doing the same with the scorpionfish because of its spiky spine. It looked like a bit of struggle.”

According to Oceana.org, scorpionfish are largely found in the Indian and South Pacific Oceans, as well as temperate waters.

Crook wasn’t sure of the type of otter, but she believes it may be a dog otter, adding it was “catching fish for about 50 minutes and wasn’t hauling them out to the bank like the otters traditionally do.”

“The otter’s teeth are quite ferocious and so white,” Crook explained. “It is using its paws like fingers to stuff the fish into its mouth. The fish isn’t going to get away. That is quite a lethal machine. I was very fortunate to be in the right place at the right time for the pictures.”

Otters disappeared from England between the 1950s and 1970s because of hunting and pesticides washing into waterways, The Guardian previously reported.

However, in 1978, hunting the sea mammal was banned and its numbers in the area started to rise, eventually returning to British rivers around 2011.

Incredible pictures show two buffalo fighting each other by locking horns

A filmmaker has taken remarkable images of two male buffalo fighting each other by locking their horns.

Wildlife documentary filmmaker Burak Dogansoysal took the remarkable images at Lake Nakuru National Park in Kenya, Africa, British news agency SWNS reports. The two male buffalo got so intertwined, there was fear one of them would lose an eye.

“It’s a fight between two African buffalos that belong [to] the same herd,” Dogansoysal said. “Usually due to dominance issues, these fights can be witnessed amongst herd members from time to time. Although very rarely do they end in death, sometimes parties leave with serious injuries.”

Dogansoysal added that he’s encountered all types of African mammals over the years, including lions, hyenas, elephants and rhinos, but the buffalo are by far the most dangerous.

Dueling on the banks of Lake Nakuru National Park in Kenya the two titans can be seen become tangled in each other’s horns. 

“Seeing these massive and aggressive animals lock horns, test each others’ strength and almost poking their eyes out was a breathtaking moment to witness,” Dogansoysal continued. “Fortunately, they both left the fight without a serious injury.”

Described as a “beautiful wildlife haven,” Lake Nakuru National Park is more than 70 square miles, according to its website. It has more than 50 different mammals and 450 different types of birds, including white rhinos, waterbucks, lions and flamingos.

It’s also home to approximately 550 different types of plants, “including the unique and biggest euphorbia forest in Africa.”

Mountain lion captured in downtown SF suspected in deaths of 3 marsupials at SF Zoo

A mountain lion cub that was seen roaming the streets of downtown San Francisco before being captured Thursday may have killed several marsupials at the city zoo, officials said.

The 50-pound male cougar, believed to be less than 2 years old, was examined at the Oakland Zoo before California Fish and Wildlife officials released it at a wilderness preserve.

But on Friday, the San Francisco Zoo revealed that three marsupials were found dead earlier in the week week at their outdoor enclosures.

In a statement to KTVU, the zoo said findings suggest the deaths of two wallaroos and a red kangaroo were due to a “local wild carnivore.”

“With the unusual sighting and capture of a young mountain lion in San Francisco this week, the Zoo is investigating whether this could be the perpetrator,” the zoo said.

Officials said after the incident that they “immediately” took steps to protect other animals.

The young cat roamed the streets of San Francisco for two days, appearing disoriented.

Video from KGO-TV showed the cat walking through the station’s parking lot early Tuesday morning.

The mountain lion was eventually caught after it was spotted near Oracle Park, home of the San Francisco Giants.

Animal Care and Control spokeswoman Deb Campbell told The Associated Press that officials get reports of cougars roaming in San Francisco about once a year. The animals come up along the Pacific Coast from the hills south of the city but eventually find their way back to the wild.

“We never had a mountain lion right in the middle of downtown San Francisco,” Campbell said.

The cat was released to an open preserve, but state wildlife officials said Saturday they did not hear about the killings at the zoo before the animal was released.

“Whether or not he still would have been released, I don’t know that answer. If we would have known, of course, that would have been a huge part of the decision-making process,” Ken Paglia, a spokesperson for California’s Department of Fish and Wildlife told KGO.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Workers at the Denver Zoo treated a grizzly bear to one of life’s simple bare necessities: a bubble bath.

The zoo shared video on Wednesday of the bear, named Tundra, as she first discovered the tub of bubbles in her enclosure.

BEAR RECORDED RELAXING IN HOT TUB, DRINKING MARGARITA

After discovering the tub, Tundra immediately investigated, spending a few moments sniffing and sticking her paws in the bubbles. She eventually jumped in and enjoyed the bath.

Tundra has seen bubbles before, the zoo said, but this was the first time she’s seen them in this set-up.

“This type of enrichment is particularly fun because it encourages Tundra to investigate, and to cool off on hot summer days like today,” the zoo wrote.

The hedgehog, appropriately named Winston Churchquill, is owned by George Andrews and has been to sights such as the Hoe, the Barbican, and the Naval Memorial, British news agency SWNS reports.

The African pigmy hedgehog has garnered a following on Instagram as a result after Georgie saw another Instagram account dedicated to a hedgehog.

British diver photobombed after getting underwater cuddle from grey seal

Now that’s a photobomb.

An English diver managed to get the experience of a lifetime after he took underwater images — and was embraced by a seal.

Ben Burville, an NHS doctor and visiting marine researcher at Newcastle University, was swimming near the Farne Islands during October 2019, when a seal suddenly swam up to him and patted him on his head, British news agency SWNS reports.

The 51-year-old, who hails from Morpeth, Northumberland, said he was calm while it happened, as he’s been diving with the animals for nearly 20 years.

“They’re very clever animals,” Burville said. “They will try and prise the diving gear off my head — but they know the difference between what is gear and what is my face. They wouldn’t dig their flippers into my face.”

Burville, who petted the seal’s flipper and gave its face a playful rub, noted his 20-year experience swimming with grey seals made him feel at ease during the remarkable experience.

“During that time, they have taught me how to dive in a way that makes them feel relaxed, and move underwater in a way that they like,” he added. “I’m very lucky that I get to do this in my spare time. I’m always very relaxed when my dive buddies are seals. It’s a great way to de-stress underwater.”

Grey seals are abundant in the British Isles, according to WildlifeTrust.org. Protected under British law since 1970, they can be seen year-round near the shore or resting on rocks to digest their food.

“Despite numbers dropping to only 500 in the early 20th century, it’s estimated that there are now more than 120,000 grey seals in Britain, representing 40 [percent] of the world’s population,” WildlifeTrust wrote on its website.

Three people were injured, one seriously, while marching in a Black Lives Matter protest in New Jersey on Friday when a deer bolted into the crowd of demonstrators, according to officials.

The South Brunswick Police Department said on Twitter the incident happened during Friday’s “March for Justice,” which began around 5 p.m. at South Brunswick High School.

As demonstrators marched along County Route 533, a deer ran from the high school property into the marchers, according to police.

Fox spotted on camera watching intense badger fight

Apparently, humans aren’t the only mammals that like to watch a good fight now and then.

A fox was spotted on camera watching two badgers go at it near Bristol, England, British news agency SWNS reports.

The fox, which appears to be only a few years old, was captured on film by amateur wildlife photographer Rodney Holbrook. “I believe the two badgers were trying to sort out who is the dominant one or possibly, just getting a wee bit boisterous,” Holbrook said.

“The fox appears to be waiting for the outcome, with a bit of interest,” Holbrook added. “I was intrigued to see the fox just looking on and wondered what was going through its mind.”

Badgers are known to fight each other often, according to Discover Wildlife. The mammals, which have poor eyesight making them easily observed, live in complex social structures, usually comprised of five adults.

Males tend to fight each other in the spring and late summer, during mating season. They will often bite each other on the backside, and can tear off chunks of flesh with their teeth. Females generally fight throughout the year.

Not only do badgers fight each other, but some members of the species also fight with other animals. In December 2019, a video went viral after a group of tourists recorded a python, honey badger and two jackals fighting each other while on safari in Africa.

In 2018, a honey badger got into a tussle with an antelope at Etosha National Park in Namibia, resulting in the antelope flinging the badger with its prodigious horns.
