Vali and Sugrive, a pair of two-year-old chimpanzees went to a recent screening of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes at a local movie theater, alongside their caretakers from the Myrtle Beach Safari in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It’s the adorable moment when art and life and bananas collide. Good on the promotions company who thought of this one!

Another pitcher has joined the Randy Johnson Club of Hitting Birds With Pitches.

Jon Maciel of the West Michigan Whitecaps became the newest avian murderer in today’s game against the Fort Wayne TinCaps. You can’t really catch it at normal speed, but the multiple replays show that yep, that’s a dead bird.

One of the broadcasters attempted to stay positive by saying, “And we hope that bird’s OK.” The optimism was appreciated, but if the splayed bird can be picked up by a groundskeeper, it’s probably not OK.

This cool footage of a curious Pallas’s Cat was taken last year in a zoo in England. It was apparently attempting to use the bathroom in peace and quiet only to be interrupted by a camera flash. Wait until 0:21…Priceless.

When baseball Hall of Famer George Brett (and my fave player of all time) isn’t hanging out with his dog, Charlie, or engaging in America’s favorite pastime, he’s speaking up for dogs! Summer is here, and families are out having fun, but George (and Charlie!) want to remind all of us to leave our furry friends at home if we plan to go somewhere that they can’t go also. On a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a shaded car is 90 degrees, and the inside of a car parked in the sun can reach 160 degrees in minutes, even with a window cracked. If it’s too hot for us to be in a car, then it’s definitely too hot for our dogs.

When left in hot cars, animals can sustain brain damage or die from heatstroke in just 15 minutes or less. Our furry friends can only cool themselves by panting and by sweating through their paw pads.

George hits a homer with this message on behalf of dogs everywhere! Watch his exclusive public service announcement below to learn more:

Dogs trust their guardians to keep them safe from harm and have their best interests at heart. To round the bases, George and Charlie sat down with PETA to talk about what things we can do to make sure our dogs are safe and the steps to take if you see a dog in a car on a hot day.

In Fort Erie, Canada, a raccoon became trapped at the top of a hydro transformer pole with a now-empty jar of peanut butter stuck on its head.

“We have a very happy raccoon,” Wendy Trombley, the manager at the Fort Erie SPCA, said after setting the animal free. “We think she is a mom, so there are some babies that are very happy as well.

“She was sitting at the top of pole. She tried to come down but was scared. She went back up to the very top and just sat. She didn’t know what to do with herself.

“People have to wash the containers in their recycle bin. Raccoons like that little bit that we don’t care about and they will go for it and get stuck.”
