Film runaways cause chaos
Two water buffalo wreaked havoc after escaping from a film set.
The animals sent drivers swerving as they headed down a Sydney street after escaping from a park where an advertisement was being filmed.
The buffalo continued their journey until they reached the University of Sydney campus, where students were greeted with the sight of a cowboy brandishing a lasso and two agitated animals.
Firefighters managed to round up the animals and live-tweeted the operation, saying they used ladders and firefighting gear to corral the buffalo into a makeshift pen, until handlers from the film set took them away.
Picture hard to swallow
Mirrors have been removed from the toilets at the National Arboretum in Gloucestershire because swallows keep fighting with their own reflections.
When the birds fly into the toilets at the Arboretum at Westonbirt, near Tetbury, they catch a glimpse of themselves in the mirrors and start fighting off what they think is a rival for a mate, the Western Daily Press reports.
Paul Cody, head of visitor attraction at Westonbirt, said there were five nests nearby and the mirrors had been removed until October when things calmed down.
“We have taken the decision to remove the toilet mirrors to prevent the resident swallows from injuring or causing unnecessary stress to themselves,” he told the newspaper.
Pane au chuckle-cat
A video of a cat running headfirst into a glass door during a French television show is going viral on YouTube.
The cat was running down a street in Lot when he was caught by cameras filming La Meilleure Boulangerie de France.
The video has notched up close to half a million views with it clearly amusing many English speakers, even though it is in French.
One user commented: “That cat should sue – there was no English or French signage on that glass door.”
