    This is the hilarious moment a curious dog squares up to a gang of vicious street cats who scare him off as he ventures into their territory. Dog Tuesday was on a walk with his owner in Tampa, Florida, when the curious pooch approached the cluster of four felines. Tuesday slowly got closer to the group and then nervously backed away before one bold move caused an unnerved cat to launch itself into the air straight at him. In the clip, the hound can be seen walking along the sidewalk sniffing at the ground as he approaches the cats.

    Going viral is good for social media accounts. Just ask Bill Belichick’s dog, Nike, who took the 2020 NFL Draft by storm and now has thousands of followers on Instagram. During the draft, right after the New England Patriots made their first selection — a shocker all by itself — the broadcast went to Belichick’s home where he was doing the draft from what appeared to be his kitchen table. Instead of Belichick sitting there, it was Nike in the chair staring at the computers — setting the NFL world into a frenzy on social media.

    Animal rights groups are praising China following the introduction of a draft law to reclassify dogs as pets, rather than livestock. “As far as dogs are concerned, along with the progress of human civilization and the public concern and love for animal protection, dogs have been ‘specialized’ to become companion animals, and internationally are not considered to be livestock, and they will not be regulated as livestock in China,” read a statement issued by the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture, published on Wednesday. Livestock animals are defined as those that can be bred for food, milk, fur, fiber and medicine. The...

    Man’s best friend could soon become a lifeline to citizens threatened by the spread of the coronavirus.

They would also be able to be deployed in other public spaces to identify...
