Animals

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Ok, this is weird.

What is it?

Answer:

Turn pic upside down.
:lol: I guessed correctly . . .
Spoiler:
. . . based on the paws, but I was not expecting that and could not picture it until I actually flipped the image. Even then, it took a couple of seconds.
Thanks.

You did better than I did!

I was going to go with pig or pig relative until I noticed the lack of cloven hooves. That made me think deformed puppy.

I don't think it's deformed, just strangely upside down with it's ear folded out.

Sorry, I meant "deformed puppy" BEFORE I flipped the image. I agree with you.

I read a story that don trump jr. will be going to Alaska to hunt grizzly bears. I am vigorously rooting for the bear. I think it would be cool if one sneaked up on him, took his gun away, and beat the shit out of him with it, then dragged him off to the den and just slapped him around for the hell of it while the cubs pissed on his leg. After two months of this fun and frivolity junior will be discovered wandering naked and babbling on a rural Alaska back road. This will make him a hero with the stupid cult members and they will send him guns and flowers.

Awesome!!
Out here all we get are raccoon packs. Chased one off my front porch last night. Had to take the cat kibble in. Have to go back to daytime feeding only for a while (raccoons generally only venture out of their dens at night). And raccoons don't seem to form hunting teams like wolves do.

It's interesting that the wolves in that video don't seem to consider that toddler to be potential food. Maybe because they can't smell the toddler.

Guesses:
Smell, as you say, somewhat, but there has to be human stink all over that yard.
Humans of any size are not recognized as food. It would only be by accident that they learn how tasty toddlers are (or so I've heard).
Unfamiliarity with windows. Maybe they don't recognize the movement as being mammalian of any type.

'You pay the price sometimes': Australian man could face Β£14,500 fine for rescuing trapped (baby) whale
The rescuer took matters in to his own hands after authorities failed to respond to calls for over two hours


:wtf:

And, it was a controversial govt shark net, not a commercial fishing net.

One thing is certain - any fine won't come out of his own pocket in the age of Go Fund Me.

I've read that polar bears don't have much of a problem with killing and eating humans.

And some grizzly bears, which are closely related to polar bears.

The "man eaters" however, tend to be culled from the wild populations by vengeful humans. Or relocated to areas where humans don't venture.

It's been written that the disappearance of huge mammals (like the woolly mammoth and saber tooth tiger) is coincident, if not caused, by the arrival of humans. We are, after all, the top predator species all over the inhabited world. Perhaps that's why some of us like to scapegoat predators much lower down on the scale. Like domestic cats. Guilt much?

Thanks. Weird, that usually blocks me, too. Maybe clear your telegraph cookies?

Pretty sure it was stuck, looks like there was no shallow end.
