~Trixie's Tantalizing Animal Tales~ March 18th
*Please paw COTD votes to PERCY #245206 today*
Good Morning & happy Monday everyone! Thank you for pouncing by to paw me a vote yesterday & for your great comments. After reading some of them I now understand why the police dogs were watching us so closely at the zoo. I thought I was a kitty that created havoc but it appears that I was surpassed by a couple of you this weekend…MOL! These ornery kitties wandered into the new, but still closed, animatronics display & caused an uproar with the staff & other zoo visitors. Guess you did make a lasting impression with your antics though because they put red marks beside your names & faxed them to all other zoos around the world…MOL! Okay kitties…I saw several of you swimming with the dolphins after their daily shows so thought I’d wrap up my hero animal series with two stories starring our aquatic mammal furiends.
On Oct. 30, 2004 a group of lifeguards swimming off the coast of New Zealand were protected from a shark attack by dolphins. Lifeguard Rob Howes and three female lifeguards were on a training swim about 100 meters off Ocean Beach near Whangarei on the North Island. While they were swimming a pod of dolphins suddenly came steaming at them and started circling them. The dolphins bunched the four swimmers together by circling about 4-8 centimeters from them, and slapping the water with their tails for about 40 minutes. Owes drifted away from the main group when an opening occurred, it was then he saw a great white shark about two meters away. When the shark started moving toward the women the dolphins went into hyper-drive. Howes said, "I would suggest they were creating a confusion screen around the girls. It was just a mass of fins, backs and human heads. “The shark left as a rescue boat neared, but the dolphins remained close by as the group swam back to shore.
In March 2008 at Mahia Beach, New Zealand, a dolphin named Moko guided 2 stranded Pygmy Sperm Whales to safety. The two pygmy sperm whales, a mother and her calf, were found stranded on Mahia Beach. Rescuers worked for more than an hour to get the whales back into the water, but the whales kept getting disorientated and stranded themselves four more times on a sandbar. It looked likely the whales would have to be euthanized to prevent them suffering a prolonged death, and then Moko came to the rescue. She approached the whales and led them 200 yards along the beach and through a channel out to the open sea. After the rescue, Moko returned to the beach and joined in games with local residents.

That’s it for hero animals right now kitties but I’ll meow more next month starring our own CC & DC furiends when I’m wearing April crown. Thank you for your solid & loving support of my COTM campaign dear furiends! Have a pawsome Monday!

Purrs & hugs,
