My god. Rifat Asghar got more than she asked for when she sat down to grub on a carrot and sweetcorn meal from the supermarket. Her colleague spotted a 'furry lump,' and went on to discover a two inch-long furball; and as if the two weren't already disgusted, they found a leg and tail - and possibly an eye.


This impossibly inappropriate salad hails from Bradford, West Yorkshire. A thorough investigation concluded that the 'foreign object' was in fact a baby weasel.


Ms Asghar said: "It has caused me a lot of trauma. I initially thought it was a mouse, and for about a week afterwards I had weird dreams about mice coming out my mouth. They say it was in there from when it was harvested. What happened to all the checks done after that happened? If something like that can go through all their processes and checks it worries me. It has completely changed the way I shop now and I can't buy any prepared food any more. I'm having to make it all myself. It was so traumatizing."

A farm in Esmont, Virginia recently announced that it needs a ton of volunteers to snuggle with its baby goats. Caramont Farm houses more than 120 goats, who produce fresh and aged cheeses for their farmers. This news comes in hot off the wire, after the farm realized their due for 90 goats this February.


If you consider yourself an exceptional cuddler, Caromont Farms has a sign-up sheet online. where folks can volunteer for four-hour shifts from early February through March.


Unfortunately this job's straight up something out a dream, and those open slots filled up quicker than you liked this post. But actually, maybe.

Adelaide local, Steven Wilshire is a gosh darn Australian hero. This dude set up a personal sprinkler system for a lil koala that quite frankly, undeniably, was having a tough go of it with the heat. Bro move.

In this clip, Gito and Asoka, both baby orangutans in residence at a West Borneo International Animal Rescue facility, meet and pretty much fall in love with one another at first sight.


Talk about pulling on all the heart strings.

Mountain lions shouldn't look like this.

This beast of a species at a glance appears to have teeth that are straight up growing out the top it's head.

Scientists are all at once baffled, befuddled, and utterly torn over what this might mean; perhaps some sort of misplaced and abandoned alien species? Who's to say?

Sparky doesn't give a f*ck about you and your lightning bolts Zeus.

Everything about this is epic. This outrageously lucky bison from Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge in Iowa survived being struck by lightning in 2013.

At this point we're unclear whether or not Sparky's spar with the afterlife bestowed him any supernatural gifts, but seriously, stay tuned.
