This guy is in trouble with the law.

After complaints from angry neighbors, a 3-year-old dog from Croatia name Medo has been bannedfrom barking at night.

His owner will be fined about $3,160 if he is caught making a sound between 8pm and 8am, and to prevent this from happening, he is being kept in a barn.

There has been a lot outrage from people all over the world since the story was made public, and a Facebook page has been set up to show support for Medo.

The page has more than 40 thousand likes so far, and people are posting videos of their own dogs barking as well as photos demonstrating solidarity with the phrase “I Bark for Medo” (“I Ja Lajem Za Medo”)

Others are using the hashtag #FreeMedo to show support on Twitter.

Here are some of the images and videos from Facebook:

You can stop what you are doing right now and spend the rest of your day watching this infant orphan bear cub named Mike roll around in a pile of sheets.

The four-week-old bear cub and his brother Ike were brought into the Woodlands Wildlife Refuge three weeks ago after their mother was shot by a hunter in self-defense.

Unfortunately, Ike also died last week after being rescued, but Mike is doing well, according to the Woodlands, and he will be with them until March before he is hopefully placed into foster care of another mother bear.

Until then you can watch Mike's progress here 24/7.

"If he is not in view, he will re-appear shortly," the Woodlands says. "We are not responsible for bodily functions that may happen between feedings. Please 'bear' with us."

They are also accepting donations to the center on their site.

Meet Atchoum, the 9-month-old creepy cat from Quebec who is winning over the Internet with his long hair and strange gaze.

His signature long hair is actually the result of a hormonal disorder called hypertrichosis, which makes him look more like a cute little werewolf or a wizard than a cat.

But that just adds to his allure.

Watch out Grumpy Cat and Lil Bub, there’s a new celebrity feline in town.

Here are some more photos of Atchoum and you can follow him on both Facebook and Instagram:

Much of the country was experiencing biting cold on Monday, but the mayor of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin was dealing with a biting groundhog.

Jimmy was having none of this “Groundhog Day” tomfoolery, and he took things into his own hands (or teeth for that matter).

During the ceremony on Monday to find out if we were going to get 6 more weeks or Winter, Mayor Jonathan Freund leaned in close to hear what the little guy had to say.

Big mistake.

Freund apparently also made a mistake with the prediction, announcing that there would be an early Spring while one of Jimmy’s caretakers argued that this had been misinterpreted.

And the city was forced to issue a statement on the whole debacle:

While tradition holds that only the mayor can translate Jimmy’s prediction and that a clear sky generally means Jimmy sees his shadow and that winter will go on for six more weeks, the mayor’s translation this morning was clearly for an early spring. The break with tradition is unusual, but not unprecedented.

I bet the mayor wishes this was one day he could do all over again.

For the first time in nearly 100 years, a Sierra Nevada red fox was spotted in Yosemite National Park.

The fox is one of the most endangered animals in North America with an estimated 50 left in existence.

The above image of the rare creature was captured by a motion-sensitive camera in the northern part of the park, and it was seen on two separate occasions.

“Confirmation of the Sierra Nevada red fox in Yosemite National Park’s vast alpine wilderness provides an opportunity to join research partners in helping to protect this imperiled animal,” stated Sarah Stock, Wildlife Biologist in Yosemite National Park. “We’re excited to work across our boundary to join efforts with other researchers that will ultimately give these foxes the best chances for recovery.”

The park service is now attempting to collect hair samples from it, to see if it is related to another group of foxes last spotted in an area called Sonora Pass.

A thick pane of glass is all that stands between this female lion and lunch.

Zari, a 7-year-old African lioness at the El Paso Zoo, was captured on video "playing' with this kid back in December.

She is either really fascinated by children, or she really wants to eat them.

The zoo says the animals are just curious, and that the glass is definitely strong enough to protect anyone from harm, so there isn't anything to worry about here.

"When some of our lions see little kids, it seems like it calls attention to them and they want to check them out," a zoo spokesperson told "She was just trying to play, and the baby was so close. The baby is safe behind a really thick window, which is made so that visitors can see the animals up close."

But lion expert Craig Packer told The Daily Mail that the beasts like to play with babies before eating them.

"Predators generally treat calves/fawns/babies differently from adults because they are such easy prey; there's no real chance of escape, so what's the hurry?" he said.

Yup, she just wants to check him out… with her teeth.
