Everybody knows that large sharks like the Great White like to eat seals. What's interesting about this video is that this occurred in the Columbia River near Astoria, OR. This is near the mouth of the river and so tidal flows would make the water brackish at most. This is a Great White in the Columbia River! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Different one. I am not at all happy with our present logo.

Make a nice pet!

this is soooo tragic



A baby girl has died after an incident involving a swooping magpie at a Brisbane park.

Paramedics said the infant sustained critical injuries after her mother tripped and fell while trying to avoid the bird on Sunday afternoon at Glindemann Park in Holland Park West.

The baby was taken to the Queensland Children's Hospital but later died.

It comes after Brisbane City Council workers removed several birds from the park.

The council's standards chair Kim Marx said an exclusion zone had been established at the site.

"This is an extremely tragic accident and our hearts go out to the family involved," Cr Marx said.

"A number of signs warning about swooping birds were in place around the area where this incident occurred, and our officers have now installed several more."

What a sad story. I canโ€™t think of anything worse than losing a child. It is surely the most devastating thing that can happen to a parent. Poor lady.

I honestly don't think i'd survive it.
Whilst I think many mums would think that, I think they would survive. Especially if you had other kids dependent on you. Although I suspect many would come out the other end as (for want of a better word) damaged goods.
