Everything in Australia seems designed to kill you, even when you're trying to save it. A poor kangaroo got his legs wrapped up in fencing cable when a couple of people came across the distressed animal. Despite the effort to free the kangaroo, it still stood up the first chance it had and got ready to fight. After about an hour, it finally calmed down enough to let the humans pull the cables away.
Meanwhile, in St. Petersburg, Russia, a helpless seal pup found itself stranded on a frozen lake in a residential neighborhood. So the locals called for a professional to come by and return the seal to its natural environment. The rescue was relatively easy, even though the seal didn't want to get picked up. But we bet once it went back to its family, the pup was pretty grateful.
