Sometimes, even wild animals make us go "aww". Whether it's a biological response to something that reminds us of human babies or maybe we're just weird, but something switches off in our heads and we do really stupid things to these "cute", "adorable" and "huggable" animals.

Like, please, guy with a broom—don't get between a raccoon mom and her kits!

That's Not How Trees Work & Don't Bring Rocks To Excavator Fight

You might have seen the #askadad trending hashtag this Father's Day after news broke that the internet is growing into the top forum for question-asking instead of using our parents. But let's be honest, this wannabe lumberjack probably would've had better luck and escaped some awkward insurance claims had he brought in someone with a little more experience (AKA dad) to this DIY tree-felling fail.

Even though bears get a bad rap, David Weale's early morning meditation in a Vancouver forest was thankfully only interrupted by a curious one with a "thing" for smoothies. He films his calm conversation with the bear just inches away, even as the bear starts toying with the flimsy fabric separating David and a possible mauling! View Now
