Young Elephant Fights Off 14 Lions

(WILDLIFE/ELEPHANTS/ANIMAL VIDEO) "Hercules" the elephant is the new king of the jungle after driving off a pride of predators in Zambia. The 1-year-old elephant wandered off from his mother near the Norman Carr Safaris Chinzombo Camp, and came upon 14 female lions who began attacking the young animal. But somehow, this story avoids an unhappy ending as the lions were unable to take down the young elephant who somehow miraculously escaped. The whole event was caught on tape by a group with Norman Carr Safaris. "In the 30-plus years I have been a safari guide in Zambia at the [Luangwa] Park, never have I seen anything like this," says the guide who drove the group to the site. "We were all so worried the baby elephant would be killed right before us." Instead, he ended up reuniting with his herd. -- Global Animal

Garbage Man Saves Kittens From Dumpster

(ANIMAL RESCUE/CATS/CUTE ANIMAL VIDEO) William Grabill, a waste management worker, was emptying trash bins one day when we heard the cries of six newborn kittens. Estimated to be between one and two days old at the time, the kittens' eyes were closed shut and their umbilical cords were still attached. The kittens' mother may have thought the dumpster was a safe place to keep her babies, but the litter could have been purposefully thrown away, too. Regardless, they were immediately taken to the Sacramento SPCA and placed into foster care with two staff members who had bottle-feeding experience. Garbage man Grabill recently visited the SSPCA to reunite with the rescued litter. One of the kittens has even been named William in their rescuers' honor. Watch the heartfelt kitten rescue reunion in the video clip above. -- Global Animal
