They Tried To Record This Fox On A GoPro. Apparently, He Was Hungry.

When you leave an expensive camera, like a GoPro, in the wild, the point is for the animals not to notice. After all, the point is the capture footage of the creatures in their natural habitat. Besides, most animals wouldn’t care about a teeny, tiny little camera, right? 

Wrong. (At least when it comes to this smart little fox.)

While filming sea lions in Round Island, Alaska, a group of researchers noticed a fox approaching them in the distance.

Thinking he had a bright idea, camera owner and researcher Jonathan VanBallenberg “stupidly put [his] GoPro on the ground in hopes of getting a close-up.”

What Jonathan didn’t expect though was for the fox to make a snack out of the camera! “Hmm….tasty.”

Still munching on the camera, the fox decided to take his “meal” to go and drug the camera into the tall grass.

Luckily though he eventually gave it up, and Jonathan was able to find it… albeit destroyed.

Watch the full video here:

(H/T: BuzzFeed)

Although his pricey camera was shredded, Jonathan was a good sport about it, adding that he’s “glad the fox didn’t get hurt or swallow anything that could have harmed it.” All we can say is that we hope this fox found the lunch he was obviously hungry enough to eat a camera for. Otherwise, we’re leaving ours at home next time we’re out in the wild.

Oof.

FOX in Detroit was all over it though.

This Baby Fox Was In Deep Trouble, Until A Helpful Man Showed Up To Free Him.

This poor fox cub somehow became severely tangled in a soccer net. He was so badly entwined in the ropes, he almost strangled himself. Luckily, Simon from Wildlife Aid Foundation stepped in.

The rescue was tense, but by the end of it you’ll be so happy:

Remember, things like this can be easily avoided. Roll up sports nets, equipment, and other items when you’re not using them. Otherwise, some wildlife could end up in quite the situation.

Wait Til You See What This Guy Discovered Living Under His Shed. (Hint: It’s Not A Monster)

One day, this guy noticed that there was something living underneath the shed in the back yard. There was a small opening under the shed, with tracks leading in and out (lots of tracks). There were also little animal bones strewn about the opening. However, it wasn’t a monster living secretly in his back yard… It was an adorable family of red foxes.

These adorable little faces were peeking out from under the shed one day.

Their antics could melt the coldest of hearts.

Just look at them!!!

Not only that, but the fox family has been taking care of the local varmints.

Momma always keeps a close eye on her sweet kits.

Play time!

(Closely followed by dinner time.)

What a happy little family.

Source: Reddit Most people think that red foxes are sly creatures that only kill livestock… but they’re actually helpful at killing small pests. So, if you’re lucky enough to have a family of foxes living under your shed, just bask in their cuteness and don’t harm them. Share this adorable little family’s photos by clicking the button below.

17 Reasons Bruce Wayne Is A Straight Up Boss

Happy birthday, definitely-not-Batman!

1. The life of a sad billionaire orphan isn’t easy, but Bruce Wayne handles it with impeccable style.

FOX / Via cinemablend.com

2. Remember that time he handled the tragic death of his parents like a man? I do.

3. And when some little punk tried to get in his face about being an orphan or whatever, Bruce had absolutely none of it.

FOX / Via grantland.com

4. He cracked that sucker’s face open with his father’s watch because Bruce Wayne doesn’t have ~time~ for bullies.

And Alfred let him do it. Never forget that.

5. While other kids his age are collecting Pokémon cards, Bruce collects evidence of corruption in the city he calls home.

6. (He also often falls asleep on the evidence of corruption in the city he calls home but that’s OK Bruce, it beats doing homework.)

7. But seriously, Bruce Wayne is a genius boy detective and every single cop in Gotham wishes they had his skills.

Even these two. Especially these two.

8. Bruce Wayne once fell down a hill and probably sprained his ankle. Do you think that stopped him?

FOX / Via buzzfeed.com

9. IT DIDN’T. He army-crawled right back up that hill and arrived in time to drink tea and watch the sunrise.

FOX / Via buzzfeed.com

WHY DO WE FALL?

10. The young ladies of Gotham have also noticed that Bruce is a total BAMF.

11. Selina Kyle might even like him, and she doesn’t like anyone.

FOX / Via buzzfeed.com

12. Bruce is the de facto head of a multibillion dollar company. In case you didn’t know.

FOX

13. His Board of Directors thinks he’s just a little boy but that is the last mistake any of them will EVER MAKE.

FOX

14. Because Bruce Wayne isn’t even close to messing around when it comes to his parents’ legacy.

15. That’s just the kind of guy Bruce is! Brave, stalwart, true, and also a total badass-in-the-making.

16. So until everything falls to shit and he decides to dress up like a bat and wreck criminals in his spare time, Gotham’s going to have to answer to Bruce Wayne.

17. It’s Bruce’s world and we’re all just living in it.

As it turns out, today is both the birthdays of Bruce Wayne the character AND David Mazouz, the actor who plays Bruce Wayne on Gotham. How’s that for a coincidence?

Happy Birthday to both!

Little Fox Stuck Behind An Office Coffee Machine Gets Rescued And Released.

Foxes known for getting stuck in all kinds of weird places, and the young fox in the video below is no different. He was exploring the space in the office roof when he fell down. After his tumble, he ended up stuck in a wall behind a coffee machine.

The workers in the office noticed their coffee machine wasn’t working, but they had no clue what the real reason for what was. They never expected to find an itty bitty fox in the wall. But when they spotted the little guy, they called Simon from Wildlife Aid Foundation who came and saved the day.

Simon has such a calming voice. No wonder the fox was so docile.

Media Matters deletes tweet on Fox News’ VA scandal coverage under … Bush?

That tweet from Media Matters does seem to have gone missing, likely sometime after MMFA was tipped that Walter Reed Hospital doesn’t fall under the purview of Veterans Affairs. Fortunately, Becket Adams was on the case to preserve the original.

Oops.

It was just a simple mistake. Let’s try to stay focused on the real issue at hand:

Here’s An Idea For Michael Bloomberg: Buy CNN

The investment banker turned media mogul turned New York City mayor is heading back to run the company he founded. And as Bloomberg expands its news operation into magazines, politics, and more, his first order of business should be to buy CNN. BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { if (BF_STATIC.bf_test_mode) localStorage.setItem(‘posted_date’, 1409796295); }); BF_STATIC.timequeue.push(function () { document.getElementById(“update_posted_time_3436686”).innerHTML = “posted on ” + UI.dateFormat.get_formatted_date(1409796295); });

By now you may have heard, courtesy of the New York Times, that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is returning to the media company he founded just eight months after leaving office. Seems even multibillionaires get bored with Bermuda after a while.

And now that the investment banker turned media mogul turned politician is going back to Bloomberg LP, I have a suggestion for him: Buy CNN.

Bloomberg the man’s return to Bloomberg the company coincides with a confluence of events in the media business that are screaming out for a mega-rich empire builder to add a few bricks to his kingdom. Notably, his company has been diversifying away from its lucrative but maturing — if not declining — terminal business. It has been building up the news side of its operation, which traditionally just fed hardcore financial news through its terminals to investors, to include magazines, a new politics website led by John Heileman and Mark Halperin and, as Bloomberg Media Group CEO Justin Smith told the Times, “a portfolio of content brands, born of the web but on different kinds of media platforms,” among them television, digital video, print, online, and even radio.

This is a lofty notion. In reality, Bloomberg TV has been something of an orphan asset inside the company. Its ratings are so small as to not qualify for measurement by Nielsen, and as a lone cable network without sister channels with which to bundle and sell to cable distributors commands only 7 cents per subscriber per month, according to figures provided to BuzzFeed for a story on the network last November. By comparison, CNBC collects upwards of 30 cents and Fox Business collects around 13 cents per subscriber per month.

It just so happens, however, that just a few blocks west of Bloomberg’s shiny Manhattan digs on 57th Street and Lexington Avenue, another media conglomerate has also found itself in the midst of a transition.

Time Warner announced just last week that it would embark on a voluntary buyout program with the aim of reducing its workforce at Turner Broadcasting, whose networks include TNT, TBS, Adult Swim, CNN, and HLN, by 6%. The move is being undertaken as part of a strategic growth plan to show investors that it was justified in rejecting Rupert Murdoch’s unsolicited roughly $80 billion takeover offer for the company. Despite Murdoch’s protestations that he is no longer interested in a deal, many believe he is waiting on the sidelines to see if Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes can execute on his plan and get its stock price to the $85 per share level that Murdoch initially offered.

For his part, Bewkes has proven himself to be an expert financial engineer, spinning off assets without little hesitation or sentimentality. Under his tenure, Bewkes has dispatched of AOL, Time Warner Cable, and most recently Time Inc. All that is left of the company is Turner Broadcasting, the Warner Bros film studio, and HBO.

Further, Bewkes has made no secret of his desire to get rid of HLN, which has been in talks about a deal with Vice and, according to the Wall Street Journal, Glenn Beck’s The Blaze.

There is little to suggest that he wouldn’t part with CNN or HLN or both CNN and HLN for the right price.

As part of the proposed Fox-Time Warner deal, Murdoch had planned to sell CNN to pass regulatory muster, and Bloomberg’s own media operation reported that the network could be worth as much as $8 billion in a deal.

That’s only 25% of Bloomberg’s personal net worth of $32 billion. While that price is a bit lofty for other potential buyers of the network like CBS, whose CEO Les Moonves described it as “sort of silly” on the company’s most recent conference call, Bloomberg could buy it with pocket cash.

Doing so would add a kind of clarity to his empire. He could keep the legacy Bloomberg network focused on financial news and keep CNN focused around general news and politics. Tying the two networks together could theoretically even increase the value of the legacy channel. Think of its as akin to CNBC-MSNBC or Fox News-Fox Business.

The idea, in fact, is not entirely unique. Bloomberg has in the recent past held talks with CBS and others about a merger or partnership on the news side.

The ambition seems to be there. Less than a month ago, Bloomberg Media promoted Josh Tyrangiel, who is responsible for returning BusinessWeek to something resembling its former glory, to oversee all of its editorial content, including TV.
