A crash further up the motorway prompted hundreds of trucks, cars, and vans to pull onto both sides of the road to make a pathway for emergency vehicles to pass. Footage from the Freising Technical Relief Agency (THW-Freising) shows a cleared path with captions calling the behavior of the road users “very positive.”
In typical German style, road-users can be seen patiently waiting for the emergency services vehicle to pass through the two orderly lines of parked cars throughout the video.
Thankfully, despite some of the dramatic images from the scene, the drivers involved in the crash between a BMW a refrigerated trailer escaped with only minor injuries.
Surfer Laird Hamilton Saves Bison From Kauai Floods firstname.lastname@example.org 2018-04-200 views Surfer Laird Hamilton joined the rescue effort to run up a herd of bison swept away when flooding tore through Hanalei town, Kauai, over the weekend. The Honolulu Star Advertiser reported some of the bison were caught up in the flooding and others were spooked by the rescue helicopters. A near record 28 inches of rainfall over the weekend brought devastating floods to the north shore of Kauai swamping homes, triggering landslides, and washing out roads. The National Guard has evacuated hundreds of people and have airlifted in supplies to people cut off in Hanalei. Credit: Jeff White via Storyful
This March 29 video from the park, which is based in Somersby, New South Wales, shows an alligator hatching. The park said at least five baby alligators had hatched following their incubation in early January, and more were expected to emerge during the Easter weekend.
“They are so small at the moment and can fit in the palm of my hand, it’s crazy to think that they’ll grow up to be over three metres one day,” Head of Reptiles Daniel Rumsey said.
Footage of the vandalism was captured on a webcam set up in front of the bronze statue, named “Earthly Messenger,” which was created after a crowdfunding campaign by music promoter David Stopps gathered £100,000 to finance the piece.
The statue was only unveiled on March 25 and was placed outside the Friars Aylesbury club where Bowie gave his first performance as Ziggy Stardust in July 1972.

Entangled Gray Whale Found by Puget Sound Scientists, But Was Lost Again email@example.com 2018-04-190 views After a two-day search, marine biologists on Saturday, April 14, located a gray whale moving through Puget Sound that had been spotted the day before entangled in fishing gear. Due to an unusual turn of events, however, it was lost again. The NOAA’s fisheries division is now seeking the help of boaters, whale watchers or others in finding the whale, who is not believed to a regular visitor to the area, so its health and condition can be assessed, according to the Seattle Times. Scientists with Sealife Response, Rehab, Research (SR3) and the Cascadia Research Collective (CRC) worked together to track the whale. SR3’s Doug Sandilands, who shared this footage with Storyful, and said the stainless steel “grapple” thrown at the start of the video was used to grab onto the entangling gear, allowing them to turn off the engine of their inflatable boat and be dragged along behind the whale, as the footage shows. They then used an underwater camera to assess how the whale was entangled. The scientists eventually found the whale on Saturday evening, after being hindered by bad weather the day before, and attached a satellite-tracking device and a buoy to it, the Seattle Times reported. As the sun went down, the rescue effort was suspended and those involved assumed the tracking device would allow them to track the whale the next day to continue untangling the whale from the fishing gear. However, the signals from the device stopped overnight and were later picked up from a location on land, the report said. A yacht owner later told scientists he saw the whale swim under his boat, leading them to believe the tracking device became dislodged as the whale rubbed against the boat, according to the Seattle Times.

Dingoes Adina and Fred were checked by a vet, as seen in this video.
“Dingoes are being blasted, baited, tracked, shot and hunted in the wild because of their perceived damage to agriculture. However, killing dingoes removes them from the critical weight ecosystem, allowing feral foxes and cats to continuously increase the rate of mammal extinction,” Tim Faulkner of the Reptile Park said.
The dog, native to Australia, is listed on IUCN as “vulnerable”.

Security Camera Footage Shows Carjacking Linked to Fatal Shooting firstname.lastname@example.org 2018-04-130 views New South Wales Police have released security camera footage showing a Sydney carjacking that they believe may be connected to the fatal shooting of former crime boss Mahmoud “Mick” Hawi in February. In the grainy footage timestamped May 19, 2017, a man can be seen parking his dark grey Mercedes, before another man in black approaches the driver and demands the car, threatening him with a knife, according to police.
Police said the car had not been seen since the incident and was allegedly the vehicle used to transport gunmen to a gym in Rockdale, where Hawi was shot and killed.
Speaking of when she first met him, Lynsey Hewitson, who runs the charity that rescued Finlay, said he was “simply terrified and shut down, he just sat in a corner shaking trying to avoid any eye contact”.
The dog in the followup video could hardly be more different as he wags his tail and plays with a new toy in what looks like a warm family home.
Hinting that this fostering arrangement might turn permanent, Ms Hewitson added: "His foster mum has done amazingly well, she hasn’t pushed him or given up on him after a few days like many people sadly do. “(We also think she may have failed miserably at fostering 😉 😁).”

The “fuzzy darlings” as Grapevine PD called them, were rescued after the death of their mother, who was “swept onto the roadway near SH-121 and I-635, where she was hit by a car.”
A Facebook post from Grapevine PD adds, “Her ducklings fell through a large drainage grate on shoulder. A good samaritan [sic] called us for help. We guarded traffic and helped lift the grate while firefighters removed it and rescued all 8 ducklings.”
Following the rescue, which was caught on camera by Texas-resident Nathan Stinson, the ducklings were placed in the care of Grapevine Animal Services.
