'Watership Down' is a terrifying movie based on a book by Richard Adams about a community of rabbits finding their way in the world.  It usually has cute rabbits on the cover so it's usually mistaken for a children's book but the world of Watership Down is brutal and not all of the happy little bunnies survive.

But... it's about bunnies so that makes it a great Easter film, right? That's what someone at Channel 5 in England must have thought when they scheduled the movie to run in the afternoon on Easter day. 

Naturally, some families were outraged but others just enjoyed the irony of the programming.

Others support the movie and think parents these days are too sensitive.

For those of you who haven't seen it, please, watch the trailer and imagine little kids watching this with their families on a lazy Easter afternoon.

What should have been a magical encounter went wrong when a 400 pound pony dressed as a unicorn escaped from her photoshoot. The fugitive, named Juliet, led the California Highway Patrol on an intense, 3-hour chase. Eventually, according to the video description, police were able to let everyone know that, "The unicorn was in custody".

A wildfire broke out in Waroona, in south western Australia, leaving behind damaged property and lives.   The adorable photo has attracted a lot of attention.  The veterinary clinic that is taking care of him mentioned that the burns on his tail aren't affecting his balance so they are hopeful. They also released additional information after a massive response. 

I have had a lot of messages about this little man - yes he is a boy. Yes he has some bad burns but has taken this long to catch. We will definitely keep you updated on his progress! Nurse Frosina x


This little guy got some terrible burns but he wasn't the only one.



Pets, farm animals and wild animals alike have been affected by this tragedy. 



According to their Facebook page, all animals at this clinic affected by the fires are being treated for free.

In this world right now there exists a lamb that desperately, fiercely, wants, needs to be a dog. Meet Little Dorrit.


Despite all manners of determined attempts Little Dorrit has failed to surmount the most crucial hurdleโ€” convincing the farmyard cat on the whole matter.


Here she is responding to her owner's call like a loyal dog:


Sometimes she'll hit up her fellow canine homies to play around for a bit:


When duty comes calling and her dogs need backup, she's there in a jiffy.


And she never passes on the opportunity for after hours drinks with her comrades:


Sadly though, Simon the cat sees this all as mere silly business.

Step aside Hugh Glass cause there's a new fearless bear-crazed dude in town. Granted this guy lacks the epic new-years-resolution-never-shave-again-sugar-frosted-beard, and that rustic Abercrombie & Fitch-esque coat throw thing.




But hot dang, Jim Kowalzcik has a set of stones and/or all the screws loose. Kowalczik is picture below straight up cuddling a 1,500-pound Kodiak bear. I mean, Kowalzcik must've been really cold.

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.
