Cliff Penrose is a senior citizen in Britain who claims to be able to put anxious rabbits.Into such a calming trance that they lie back and roll their legs in the air. Rabbits are naturally hyper active animals and rabbit owners usually face problems in this aspect. However Cliff Penrose has found a solution to all these owners’ problems. The trick, he says, is to very confidently hold the rabbit because they can sense human nervousness. After holding them he hypnotizes bunnies by applying pressure to certain areas of their body such as the belly. This induces relaxation and this state can last for up to 10 minutes.
Frodo the Foal
Frodo the Foal was found abandoned in the middle of a deadly winter and was declared to have a very low chance of surviving through the winter. He was found collapsed near Blackpool during the deadliest month of the winter. At this time he was incredibly weak, had a distended belly due to parasitic infection, was crawling with lice and had no spark left in him. At penny farms he received intense medical attention especially from his nurse Katie Eva. The brave foal fought resiliently and with the help of Katie has gained strength and confidence in just a matter of 4 weeks.
Crime Busting Parrot
Kuzya the parrot just saved his owner from some serious losses. Gennadi Kurrukul, his owner, said that the parrot let out a scream at 4 a.m. when some burglars were trying to enter his house. The scream was very loud and scared the burglars of before they could steal anything other than Mr.Kurrukul’s wallet. The owner and the bird have a beautiful relationship with each other, and Gennadi does not keep him caged, but instead lets him roam freely around the house. Police are investigating the burglary and advising people to make sure to lock their doors and windows and night. Maybe we should all keep companions like Kuzya to protect us though.

Researchers at the Wolong Giant Panda Research Centre have found an ingenious way to fool a baby panda. Previously researchers faced a major problem in caring for these endangered animals. This particular baby panda is monitored by cameras but researchers have had to handle the cub to undertake physical examinations in order to monitor weight and body temperature.
They found that Pandas cared for by humans found it more difficult to rehabilitate themselves into the wild. For a successful reintroduction it is necessary that the panda cubs have no contact with humans. So the researchers have started wearing Panda costumes to fool the cub into thinking it being cared for by its own parents.
