What exactly is a porcupine doing on a glacier, anyway? These adventurers came across the stranded animal and gave him a helping hand.

The Humane Society recently rescued 19 horses from a Tennessee trainer. The trainer was accused of committing the cruel act of "soring." Soring is where a trainer will apply a chemical to the horse's leg and then wrap it, which essentially cooks the leg. This makes the movement of the horse much more exaggerated for competitions. So far, two trainers have been arrested for felony animal cruelty.

Watch the paratrooper being sucked out of the plane again here.
Like a modern day fairytale, a woman is rescued from her tower (a fake-burning building) by her prince charming (her firefighter boyfriend/now fiancé), and they ride off on his noble steed (they maybe rode in the fire truck afterwards). However you view it, it was a pretty epic proposal. Well played, Sir.
