Sometimes wildlife control is beyond us. It’s not called wildlife for no reason. Social media and technology have made stories of animals doing things an essential part of the world of viral videos.
In 2015, the famed Pizza Rat video was posted showing an exceptionally robust rodent carrying a whole slice of pizza greedily in the bowels of a subway system. The video has since been viewed over 10.4 million times.
Reminiscing about the Pizza Rat got us to thinking about what animals have been up to recently and we’ve come across some stories we think you’ll enjoy.
Last week a Florida man returned to his home to discover his glass front door shattered. He called the police for suspected burglary. When authorities arrived, they swept the house and curiously discovered that nothing had been taken. Upon hearing a noise coming from the bathroom, guns were drawn and authorities told the perp to identify itself. After hearing no response, they breached the bathroom to find a deer trapped inside. The homeowner didn’t press charges against the terrified creature for damage from animals and, with police help, the deer was allowed to exit through the (unbroken) back door.
“Alexa, Polly Wants A Cracker!”
Perhaps not a cracker, but one parrot owner in England reported that her parrot would attempt to order things from Amazon using her Alexa smart speaker. The parrot — called Rocco — was adopted by bird sanctuary worker Marion Wischnewski because Rocco used profane language too much in front of visitors. Once she brought him home, he quickly figured out how to use Alexa. At first, it was to play songs and hear jokes. Now, Wischnewski has caught him attempting to order his favorite snacks. She’s thus far canceled the attempted purchase of ice cream, raisins, broccoli, watermelons, a kite, and lightbulb.
