Horse not alarmed by wolves

In this footage, a wild horse is apparently unbothered by the presence of several wolves, and perhaps even quite friendly with them.

Nativity cow in second bid for freedom

Stormy the cow was recaptured after again escaping the Philadelphia nativity scene in which she is imprisoned. The bovine's second bid for freedom ended after she was found about a block away from the Old City historical neighborhood. Her first saw her reach the I-95 highway, where police surrounded her with cars and summoned a "cow expert" -- do they mean a farmer? -- to help return her to the festive corrall.
