One might expect to encounter an elk in the snowy mountains of Russia. But we don't think this antlered guy was anticipating to find himself surrounded by humans holding camera phones! The animal seemed okay with the attention initially, but when he wanted out of the spotlight, he wound up kicking a young girl to the ground as well as a woman who rushed in to help the child. Ural National Park officials say they think the elk just got spooked. (Pretty sure the humans suffered quite a scare as well.) No injuries were reported.
Over in Surrey, United Kingdom a deer recently managed to get herself wedged between two close tree trunks. A passerby heard the doe's cries and called for help. Simon and Lawrie of Wildlife Aid came to the rescue, lifting the trapped creature to safety. She fortunately didn't suffer any serious body scrapes and was quick to dart back into the woods.
