When The Tables Are Turned…

 Man chased up a tree by angry red deer is caught on video

By: David Strege

A man playing cat and mouse with an angry, testosterone-fueled stag around the base of a tree in a London park finally escaped the attacking animal by climbing the tree, which had served as his only protection from the business end of those deadly antlers.



Wildlife can fight back when they’re not up against guns, arrows, scopes, tree blinds and enormous arsenals.

Nice to see the deer win this round.

Tarra and Bella, Best Friends….




Unfortunately this beautiful story came to a sad end last year when Bella was believed to be killed by coyotes. Tarra actually carried Bella’s body back to the barn they shared together.

Tarra is in mourning for her beloved Bella and has turned to her sister elephants for comfort. Bella even visits the site where Tarra died. How incredible are elephants?

“It is with heavy hearts we honor the passing of Bella the Dog. Eight years ago, the white stray canine wandered into our habitat and befriended The Sanctuary’s founding elephant, Tarra. The inseparable friends were incredible in their devotion to each other and the story of their unique bond has been shared around the world. . . .We love and miss you, Bella, and will continue to take care of your friend Tarra.”
