In case you’re wondering, a bear cub ambles through the aisles of a drugstore the same way a toddler does. It runs, stops, walks, and most likely is on the hunt for sweets. At least that’s what one bear caught on camera at a Rite Aid in Ashland, Oregon, was doing. The bear’s day started with a trip to a Super 8 motel, according to a KOBI-TV report.

Maybe the Weather Channel should start hiring elephants. A study in PLoS ONE suggests the creatures can detect rainstorms happening 150 miles away, possibly by hearing them even from that far off. Migrating elephants are known to change direction out of the blue, and researchers haven’t been certain why.

This firefighter understands that any life — no matter the species — is a life worth saving. Last Thursday, firefighters responded to a burning home in Virginia, rescuing the woman inside the house, CBS6 reported.

Though the canine made no movement and it appeared as though he wasn’t going to survive, firefighter Josh Moore and paramedic Bubby Bish decided to make a last-ditch attempt to save the pet.
