Oct. 10, 2016: We've scoured the Web to find the best and most compelling animal stories, videos and photos. And it's all right here.
Queen Elizabeth II is mourning the death of Holly, one of her two Corgis who posed with her and her Dorgis in a photo shoot marking her 90th birthday earlier this year. (Dorgis are a cross between Corgis and Dachshunds.) The queen is well known for her love of Corgis, and she’s had more than 30 of them since 1945. But given her own advanced age, the monarch has said she didn’t plan to add any more Corgis to her pack once Holly and Willow, who is also 13, passed away. Holly was considered the leader of the palace pack, and appeared with Queen Elizabeth in a famed James Bond sketch at the opening of London’s Olympic Games in 2012. An insider described the queen as “deeply upset” at Holly’s passing, and said, “She was devoted to Holly and wherever the Queen was, the dog was never far behind.” — Read it at the U.K.’s Daily Mail
A bald eagle flew in front of a vehicle in northeast Florida on Saturday and got stuck in the car’s grille. The driver called for help, and got a hand from Clay County Sheriff’s deputies and firefighters, who were able to safely free the eagle. The area was hit by Hurricane Matthew over the weekend. The bird was taken in by the B.E.A.K.S. Wildlife Sanctuary for rehabilitation. — Read it at Columbus’ NBC4i
An errant gray cat frolicked on the subway tracks at New York’s 5th Avenue near 42nd Street Sunday afternoon, stranding passengers for nearly an hour. The cat sat between the rails for a while before running to a tunnel, where NYPD transit officers captured him. He’s now recovering from his adventure at a city shelter, where he’s been named Pablo. And Pablo has a happy ending to his ordeal: a mother and her 13-year-old daughter who witnessed the rescue from the platform said they plan to adopt him. — Read it at the New York Post
Nora, the 10-month-old polar bear who’s in a 30-day quarantine after moving to the Oregon Zoo, had a fabulous time last week in a kiddie pool filled with ice. The cub took some running leaps into the pool, where she delighted in writhing around in the cold. Nora was born at the Columbus Zoo in Ohio and made the trip across the country to Oregon last month. The Oregon Zoo is planning a major renovation of its polar bear habitat and is asking for the public’s help in designing it with a survey of its community. — Watch it at NBC News
Armed with lots of treats and patience, the owner of a Golden Retriever named Chanel and her puppies’ father-to-be posed in an adorable maternity photo shoot recently. Chanel and LeeRoy are expecting their little ones to arrive on Oct. 12. The dogs stood behind a sign reading “9 Days Until Puppies,” in the pictures taken last week. The sweet photos quickly went viral when Chanel’s owner, Kennedy Sorensen, posted them on social media. She said she and LeeRoy’s owner are “so happy that our dogs were able to make people smile and that everyone is enjoying the pictures just as much as we are.” — See photos at the Huffington Post
