We’ve seen quite a few stories about coyotes lately, and they’ve taught me more about just how interesting these critters can be. They’re found all over the United States, and while they can run into problems with the human population, they usually keep to themselves if possible. They’re a huge part of the food chain in North America, and...

Dog fighting is a serious problem in the United States. In 2007, it was estimated that more than 250,000 dogs were involved in dog fighting rings where they were forced to hurt each other for humans’ entertainment and monetary gain. What’s more, people being involved in dog fighting has been linked to domestic violence and other violence against human...

It’s hard to imagine what it’s like to have never been outside or experienced the sun on your face. Even if you’re the biggest couch potato, you’ve got to leave the house to go places like the grocery store or the post office. But what if you had never been outside in your entire life? That’s what sometimes happens to animals who have...

There are some stories we cover that just stick with us. One of those is the story of Carrie DeKlyen, who found out earlier this year that she had a deadly form of brain cancer. With five kids at home, this was a devastating diagnosis, but it became even more difficult when Carrie and her husband Nick found out she was pregnant with their sixth child. She chose to...

Of all the big cats, one of the most elusive is the snow leopard. Not only have they adapted over millions of years to blend in with the snow, they also tend to live in remote areas where it’s difficult to film them.

Sometimes you get an idea in your head that’s just hard to shake. Conquering something that scares you can feel really empowering. As someone who’s totally afraid of heights and being off balance, I’m a little bit ashamed to say that a baby panda has outdone me with her sheer determination. This is Pan Yue, and she decided she really needed to...

Sometimes animals have favorite humans. We like to think they love us all unconditionally, but just like humans, they sometimes gravitate toward certain people. This can even happen when our pups have two loving pet parents! Of course, some cases are more extreme than others. If you want to see just how crazy things can get, check out Oshie the Golden Retriever....

The tropical storm has killed at least seven people in the U.S. so far. Unfortunately, 37 were killed in the Caribbean as well. Irma hit the British Virgin...

As much of Florida prepares to ride out the oncoming wrath of Hurricane Irma, many people are finding themselves driving around all over to collect much-needed supplies. That was the case for Pam Brekke, a Florida native who had been searching for days for a generator for her ailing father, who would need the energy boost to help power his oxygen machine. After traveling...

One of the most terrifying things about devastating hurricanes like Harvey is that sick people often can’t reach help. For a few days during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, even calls to 9-1-1 weren’t going through. They were overwhelmed with so many requests that they asked only those in dire emergencies to call. Unfortunately, one girl with sickle...
