  • Watch: Tiger Saves Handler From Charging Leopard's Sneak Attack

    A video from early June showed a jaguar trying to sneak up on Serio as he stood against a wall. Just before the cat appeared ready to pounce, Serio whipped around and shouted, catching the animal off-guard. After being caught, the jaguar repeatedly licked Serio’s face. The Black Jaguar White Tiger Foundation is home to more than 210 big cats, according to its website. The animals ― including jaguars, tigers, leopards, lynxes, lions and pumas ― are said to come from circuses, zoos, and both legal and illegal breeders. “The Foundation is about changing people’s attitudes and perceptions about all animals,” their website reads. “Black Jaguar-White Tiger is rooted in the belief that education can

  • Three more towns in France to join burkini ban

    Three resorts in France were poised Tuesday to join three other seaside towns in banning the burkini, the full-body Islamic swimming garment that has sparked concern about religious extremism. Prime Minister Manuel Valls also weighed in on the debate, lashing the wearing of the burkini as "not compatible with the values of France and the Republic" and saying he supported mayors who ban it if they acted in the public good. In the southwest, the mayor of the resort town of Leucate, Michel Py, was to sign a municipal decree later Tuesday that would ban the burkini on public beaches, the town hall said.

    The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, 38, took to Instagram Monday to document the difficult day after her NFL player husband Kroy Biermann, 30, who previously played for the Atlanta Falcons, signed with the Buffalo Bills – meaning he had to head to Buffalo, New York, to train with the team, leaving his wife and their children back home in Georgia.

"Although Kroy is so excited as I am (my parents grew up there, half my family still lives there) never mind the fact the fans are AWESOME, the team is AWESOME and my hubby is ecstatic ...

  • "Fixer Upper" Clients Are Renting Out Their Homes—and Chip and Joanna Aren't Happy About It

    Spending the night in a home renovated by Chip and Joanna Gaines on an episode of Fixer Upper may sound like a dream come true, but not all fans agree. More and more homes seem to be popping up on rental sites like Airbnb and VRBO, leaving HGTV watchers wondering why anyone would have the couple decorate their home, only to move out right away. According to the Waco Tribune, the homeowners that do this say they didn't go on the show with the intention of securing rental income. But as Chip and Joanna become more of a household name, tourists are flocking to Waco—so it can be tempting to decide to turn your home into a vacation rental and make a pretty penny. Moving forward, the show plans to

  • Father ‘utterly terrified’ after trooper points gun at his 7-year-old during traffic stop

    At first, Kenneth Walton thought the Arizona state trooper following him and his 7-year-old daughter wanted to warn him of a broken taillight. It was dark, and Walton knew he hadn’t been speeding, so — not thinking much of it — he pulled over on an off-ramp, rolled down his driver’s side window and waited. “Tonight, I was arrested at gunpoint by an Arizona highway patrol officer who threatened to shoot me in the back (twice) in front of my 7-year-old daughter,” Walton wrote on Facebook, hours after the incident. The Arizona Department of Public Safety confirmed that the traffic stop took place but disputed the tone and some of the details in Walton’s Facebook post, calling it “inflammatory” and “irresponsible.” The department is standing by the trooper’s actions, including his threat to shoot Walton during the traffic stop, said Capt. Damon Cecil of the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

  • Trump Miscalculates Again When He Attacks Obama on Foreign Policy

    In his effort to reset a presidential campaign that has dangerously gone off track, Republican Donald Trump mistakenly continues to believe there is much to be gained politically by closely linking Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton to President Obama’s foreign policy record. Trump last week shocked Republicans and Democrats alike by insisting that Obama was the “founder” of ISIS and that Clinton, his former secretary of state, was the “cofounder” because of their badly flawed policies in Iraq and Syria that led to the rise of the bloody terrorist group.
