This is what happens when you synchronize camera’s shutter speed with a helicopter’s blade frequency
that’s not okay

It’s ok buddy, you won.
Of course this occasionally happens; deer get their antlers locked in battle, and they can’t get them out. Sometimes they both die.
i’m still looking at this image and it’s so impressive to me
after this guy’s foe died (what do u think the interim was like) did he jsut drag around the carcass until the body fell off at the neck or what. did he go out of his way to behead it. whats the story here. i want to interview this deer
Okay, this is a new one. Did the living elk somehow go crazy during the rutting season and go at a carcass’s antlers and get them stuck? I mean, he just looks too healthy to have been starving for the weeks it would have required the dead elk to decompose to that advanced stage, unless that hollow over the belly is deeper than it looks and wow I am really overthinking this aren’t I but damn this is weird.
The meat still looks pretty red and fresh, not like that of a well-rotten carcass, so the dead elk was likely scavenged by coyotes. Happens pretty often in this scenario as the healthy elk isn’t able to run away from the predators with the weight of it’s competitor attached. Also since there was an easy supply of meat the healthy elk would have been left alone while they feasted on the carcass.

You despise all sheep

Makes nothing but sheep

A CROW TRIED TO GO IN OUR CLASSROOM AND HE HAD A PEN
yes hello i am here to learn geometries
That crow is more prepared than some of my students.
You’ve all just like, completely skipped over the possibility that this crow has seen people using pens in this room, found one, and is trying to return it. There’s been videos of crows picking up sweet wrappers and stuff and placing them in bins after seeing humans put their litter in bins. I really do believe that this crow is trying to return the pen and that is ADORABLE AS HELL.
THEY ARE SO SMART I LOVE THEM
Crows are thought to be self aware by some scientists. Its perfectly possible the crow wants to return the pen to humans. Knowing it belongs to humans.
Corvids. Who KNOWS. :)
Another cool crow deal: Once, when trying to assess if crows could reason and use tools, scientists had two crows who didn’t know each other each take a wire from a table (one was hooked, one was straight) and try to grab meat from a bottle with it. The crows could see each other, though they had separate bottles. Only the straight wire worked for this, so they hypothesized that if crows could reason, the second trial would have the two crows fighting over the straight wire. The second trial started and, to the surprise of the scientists, the two crows both went for the bent wire, one held it down and the other unbent it. They both got meat out of their bottles. They came to a peaceful solution without verbal communication. Crows are probably smarter than we are.
Omg today a bird burnt down an entire building because he used a burning cigarette to build his nest
Ugh. My chest is actively shredding itself tonight from coughing. I was a weak-willled idiot to start up smoking again.
