Amazing Animals Stories Part -1

Drowning diver is saved by a whale


A drowning diver has a beluga whale to thank for helping to save her life after her legs were paralyzed by cramps. Yang Yun was taking part in a free-diving contest at Polar Land in Harbin, north-east China, in which participants were required to sink seven metres to the bottom of a pool and stay there for as long as possible without the aid of breathing equipment.Ms Yun, 26, thought she was going to die amid the beluga whales she shared the arctic pool with, after struggling to move her legs while trying to kick her way to the surface.

The lady began to choke and sank even lower she thought she was going to die. Until she felt an incredible force under her driving her to the surface.Beluga whale Mila had spotted her difficulties and using her sensitive dolphin-like nose guided Yun safely to the surface.

Mice Responsible for a Fire That Killed Over 100 Cats


In an ironic event that may be called the mice revenge, mice are being held responsible for a blaze that killed nearly 100 cats at an animal shelter near the Canadian city of Toronto. The fire at the humane society shelter in Oshawa also killed three dogs and some rats that were up for adoption. An initial report from the fire marshal says mice or rats chewing through electrical wires in the ceiling are likely to have sparked the blaze. The $250,000 (£137,000) fire is still under investigation by the Ontario Fire Marshal’s office.

Orangutan Deactivates Electric Fence to Escape from Zoo


An Australian zoo was evacuated after an “ingenious” orang-utan escaped from her enclosure by short-circuiting an electric fence today. Staff at Adelaide zoo said 137lb (62kg) Karta used a stick to short-circuit the electric wires around her enclosure before piling up some more sticks to climb out. But the 27-year-old ape only ventured as far as a surrounding fence, still metres from members of the public, during her 30 minutes of freedom. The zoo’s curator, Peter Whitehead, said she seemed to realize she was somewhere she was not supposed to be and returned to her enclosure.

Karta was spotted by a member of the public and, although she returned to her enclosure, the zoo was evacuated as a safety precaution. Whitehead said the orang-utan was not aggressive and had not been close to members of the public. However, vets stood by with tranquilizer guns in case of trouble.Zookeepers believe that Karta was driven to make an incredible escape attempt by grief at the loss of her longtime mate.
