Animal Kingdom

Sad news today from our local zoo:

ASHEBORO, N.C. -- A 14-year-old giraffe named Azog died Thursday afternoon while undergoing surgery, the N.C. Zoo announced Friday. [...]

Azog was born at the N.C. Zoo in July, 1994 and was one of two adult giraffes in the zoo's collection.

Better news for a cute and cuddly kitten:

HIGH POINT, N.C. (WGHP) -- Workers from Bill Davis Racing removed a kitten that refused to come out from an SUV's undercarriage Friday morning at the High Point Country Club. On Thursday, the car's owner found a note taped to his door advising him to not start the engine without first checking for the cat. Efforts failed to entice the kitten out with food, so Bill Davis Racing brought equipment to jack up the vehicle and access the kitty.

A re-enactment of the rescue is here.

So if a cat is stuck up in a tree, you call the fire department. If it is stuck under an SUV, you call a NASCAR Team.

You learn something new every day. If you’re paying attention.
