On Thursday morning some security guards spotted a leopard wandering into a Maruti Suzuki factory about 20 miles south of New Delhi. What happened next was a shutdown and a hunt for the wayward cat that involved tranquilizer darts, firecrackers, and goats.
For several weeks now, a chicken in Shediac, New Brunswick, has been crossing the road, clearing the parking lot of delicious crumbs and then crossing again and returning home.
Usually, any story that begins with a driver hearing a crunch while on the road won’t have a happy ending. Every so often though, it happens. On September 3, on a drive to Calgary, Alberta, Georgie Knox hit a coyote and “heard a crunch.” Assuming it was dead, she drove on, until 20 minutes later a construction worker…
As per usual, National Geographic has a baby animal story that’s an emotional roller coaster, this time involving a baby wildebeest that started chasing a blue Hyundai Tucson after it was separated from its herd in Africa. Somewhere, a Disney writer is taking notes.

Deer vehicle collisions kill about 200 people every year, and more deer collisions happen in the fall than any other time of year. If you live in deer country, this advice might save you some trouble.
There’s an awful lot of Serious Business happening in America right now. I’m pretty sick of it. Let’s take a moment to ignore the news and the polls and the leaks and focus on something that actually matters: what animals would be what-wheel-drive?
