Scare of the Day: Angry Gorilla Rams Into Glass at Nebraska Zoo

The cage must be made with gorilla glass.

A silverback gorilla did not enjoy being filmed in his pen at the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska on Thursday, so he gave the cameraman a little scare.

The uploader said the animal was already irritated and had just been in a fight with one of the other gorillas prior to this “attack.”

So all of the paparazzi pushed him over the edge.

You can watch the video above. Wait for it…

Intruders of the Day: Flock of Birds Take Over Man’s House

Good thing these bird aren’t the Alfred Hitchcock type.

A guy in Texas came home after running some errands to find a huge flock of birds had infiltrated his home. He captured the chaos in two separate videos (part 1 is above and part 2 is embedded below).

“There are birds everywhere,” he says. “This is fucked up.”

There were upwards of 25 of the animals fluttering around, which he assumes were swallows.

He described the bizarre incident in a post on Reddit:

I opened the front door and heard what sounded like wings… I kind of flipped sh*t. Long story short We got them all out safely. There was a lot of cleanup involved, but all of the birds are fine. We think they got in through the chimney since last summer we thought we could hear birds chirping.

So it’s probably not an evil curse or omen, but he if he comes home to find plague of locusts in the next few days, it might be time to call a priest.

Photo of the Day: Bobcat Catches Shark on Beach in Florida

Meanwhile, in Florida… a bobcat was spotted at Sebastian Inlet State Park in Vero Beach dragging a shark along the sand.

And it’s got the Internet talking, because that is one badass bobcat.

What do you think this is Bobcat, Australia?

The photographer, John Bailey, says that the beast leapt into the water to grab it while it was busy eating another fish.

The cat then pulled it out of the ocean and onto the sand. He eventually dropped the shark and fled because it got scared (presumably from having his photo being taken), so he didn’t even get to enjoy his meal.

Commenters, of course, are questioning the validity of the photo, but experts say it’s actually a pretty normal occurrence.

“There is no reason to believe it’s fake,” said a rep from the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission.

On the FWC Facebook page, the group says it’s most likely an adult Atlantic Sharpnose Shark.
