Lions love impalas. For lunch, not to hang out with or something like that. So the lions in Kruger National Park were probably thrilled when an impala got himself stuck in the mud. However, chef Steve Haley was on safari and decided he wasn't going to let this impala become lion chow.
While this isn't quite as interesting as an animal rescue, it is super adorable. This baby rhino had an itch it just had to scratch. We've all been in a similar situation, but we're just grateful that there normally aren't any tourists there to record video of us.
