Then the family began noticing the bruises and the black eyes. So her family wanted answers. The hospice workers told her folks that she had somehow fallen out of her wheelchair and suffered those sudden injuries. But her granddaughters didn’t believe them. Minnie’s family then set up a hidden camera in her room. What the camera revealed horrified them to their core. Minnie has passed away, but her family uncovered the truth before her demise.

Not all heroes wear capes, and the man featured in the video below proves the statement. He is named Nelson Wilson and this elderly gentleman is getting pretty popular on the internet because of what he did in the clip. Wait till you see this!

Wilson started his New Year by feeding his lovely horses. But that’s when he noticed a solitary finch perched upon a steel fence right by the water tank. The bird wasn’t moving, so he went up to inspect. Then he saw that the little thing had gotten his feet wet and had stuck himself on the fence. In the near zero Idaho temperature, it didn’t take much time for his feet to get frozen. Wilson then freed the bird by warming his feet with his breath. It is amazing to see the bird finally fly off. The man says it was “a delightful way to start a new year”.

Some of us have had the chance to witness live birth before. But for those of us that haven’t, we always have the internet in case we get curious. The video below features one of these videos. In the clip, we get to see an adorable hedgehog give birth to her little ones.

The people in the military are some of the most incredible people in the world. They protect us without any expectations.

He hid under the sheets while mom brought their dog into the room. The dog sniffs around for a few seconds. Then he understands that something is up.

People have lots of different fears. Some of them are rational, while some of them are not. And as this video shows, our animal friends aren’t that different. They are very similar to us in many ways. Sometimes, we just don’t notice it. The precious German Shepherd featured in the video below also has a fear. But wait till you see what it is.

This adorable pooch is really terrified when it comes to wooden floors. Some of you might think it’s funny, but only the adorable dog knows how hard it is for him. He probably always slips on the wood and that’s why he reacts that way. His owners are on the other side of the room and he wants to be with them. But first he needs to be brave and cross the room. Wait till you see how he does that.

Thankfully, a local rescue group ran to his aid, moments before he was about to be killed.

Many innocent animals have suffered because of the negligence and ignorance of the human race. The way we pollute the environment is inadvertently destroying everything around us. We have seen many instances regarding this subject before. Even the smallest mistake you do can ruin someone else’s life.

In this video, we get to see an example. Someone tossed a can carelessly outside. But sadly, a tiny cub ended up getting trapped because of this human’s fault. Thankfully, a kind stranger heard the creature screaming in his backyard. He rushed to the scene and saw the cub’s head stuck in the can. He helped the little fellow out and the response he got from the cub is really very adorable. Make sure you crush cans when you dispose them.

34 year old cowboy, Wagner Lima, from Paraiba, Brazil, died in a motorcycle accident this New Year. He was well-loved in his community and his death was hard for everyone, including his horse, Sereno. Sereno and Lima were best buds and were always seen together. According to Lima’s brother, Wando, “This horse was everything to him. It was as if the horse knew what was happening and wanted to say goodbye.” When the vehicle carrying Lima’s coffin arrived at the gathering, his horse somehow seemed to know he was in there. Sereno smelled around the casket and laid his head on top. He is said to have whimpered during the procession to the cemetery.

Meet Sally. This beautiful goldfish is already 23 years old. This makes her 161 years old in dog years. She used to be an active fish, but effects of her old age have started to show themselves lately. Sally struggled to stay afloat and swim around for a few months. This not only hurt her, but also her owner as well.

Her owner’s boyfriend, Aidan, says it was heartbreaking to watch the little thing struggle. But instead of not doing anything, Aidan decided to help Sally out. He made a flotation device to help the tiny fish regain her buoyancy. He wrote in the description, “For the past few months she was stuck on the bottom of her tank. It was heartbreaking.

Israel Ka’ano’i Kamakawiwo’ole was an exceptionally gifted singer and musician from Hawaii. Often also referred to as “The Fearless Eyed”, “Bruddah Iz”, and “Gentle Giant”, he was also a Hawaiian sovereignty activist. Despite his stature, Israel had a very soft and mild voice. However, his obesity led to a number of cardiac and respiratory issues which caused his premature death in 1997 at the young age of 38.

His contributions to Hawaiian culture have made him a legend. In 1993, he released an album that featured a ukulele medley of “Over the Rainbow” and Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World”. This version of the song was recorded in 1988, in Honolulu, and in just one take. It has been covered by many people over the years and has also been used in several commercials, films and television programs.

Many animals are euthanized because of the conditions they are born with. Casper was going to be one of them. This pure white Siberian husky puppy was born with swimmer syndrome, a condition that makes it almost impossible for a dog to walk or even stand. He came from a breeder who did not know how to care for his condition and was mere moments away from being put down.

Thankfully, that’s when Coastal German Shepherd Rescue decided to take charge and rescue him. They contacted an animal therapist and acuscope biotechnician called Gina. She brought him to a vet who suggested they should euthanize him. But Gina took the pooch home and started treatment herself. He was moving around by day 5 and he was able to run around like a normal puppy by day 10. Casper was adopted shortly after by a young man.

Deepak Paswan’s mother underwent a complicated surgery when he was born. The woman from Bihar, India, thought she was having twins, but later she found out that one of the twins was too underdeveloped to make it through the pregnancy. Deepak, the surviving twin, had to bear the burden of his parasitic twin. Extra legs and arms of his would-be sibling protruded from his stomach.

Deepak carried his twin for the first seven years of his life. This made him look like he had four extra limbs. He was often teased by terrible names like “devil” and “freak.” He was even given the nickname of the “Eight-Limbed Boy.” Deepak’s family was too poor to get him a surgery. However in June 2010, doctors at the Fortis Hospital Bangalore decided to operate on him for free. Life is slowly becoming normal for Deepak. He says, “I can run faster than my two elder brothers — before I could never keep up. I really like my new body. It’s much more fun. I am very happy.”
