Moun­tain lion in LA home The an­i­mal was found un­der­neath a house in 2015. Af­ter ef­forts to dis­lodge it – in­clud­ing shoot­ing it with bean­bags – failed, it even­tu­ally left of its own ac­cord.

Koalas fly to Sin­ga­pore Aus­tralia loaned four koalas to Sin­ga­pore in 2015 as “cul­tural am­bas­sadors”. They were given hot tow­els and eu­ca­lyp­tus leaves for a pho­to­shoot – then trav­elled in crates.
