A leopard got a little more than it bargained for when it picked a fight with a porcupine. The spiky rodent was anything but a slow poke and used its natural defenses to avoid the big cat's advances, sticking its attacker's paws with its quills. The pair danced around one another for about an hour and a half before the leopard gave up on the idea of eating a porcupine for dinner.

Never Sneak Up On A Horse & Dog Escapes From Hungry Leopard

By now, we all know the first rule of Fight Club: NEVER sneak up on a horse! At least, that's what we think the rule is (we haven't been to our local fight club in a while). One man in Brazil ignored that rule and strolled up behind a horse, which scared the animal. In response, the horse kicked the man, sending him flying! He did get back up, but we wouldn't be surprised if his ribs didn't survive unscathed. via ViralHog On the subject of sneaking up, a dog in India is incredibly lucky to be alive. CCTV footage shows a leopard tip-toeing (tip-pawing?) up to an unsuspecting dog. It grabbed the poor pup in its jaws and started to make a getaway. However, the dog managed to escape and most likely has a fear of cats to this day. View Now
