Man Climbs Into Sewers to Save Ducklings
In Jackson Michigan, Monica Cyrocki said the mailman alerted her that ducklings were crying for help from a sewer. Wanting to help the poor ducklings Cyrocki called her fiance Kyle Morgan for help. After taking the manhole cover off with a neighbor’s help, Morgan climbed into the sewer. It smelled pretty bad, he said but he and his neighbors used a bucket on a string and net to rescue all nine ducklings. As a new father, Morgan said he couldn’t just let the ducklings go.”To be honest man, I’ve got a newborn son and this mother bird was freaking out,” Morgan told Mlive. “I had to. I said, ‘I’m going in there’.”
Man From Michigan Wins $4 Million Instant Lottery Prize…Again
How did he do it? For the second time, a man from southeast Michigan has won a $4 million lottery game, officials said on Monday. Mark Clark from South Rockwood scratched a ticket with a coin his late father gave him around 10 years ago. They often went fishing together after Mark won a different $4 million instant game back in 2017. “You don’t think you’ll win millions once, and you definitely never think it would happen twice,” Clark, 50, said in a statement released by the Michigan Lottery. “It’s hard to put into words exactly what I am feeling. … I can’t help but think maybe that lucky coin helped me win this.”
Pakistan’s ‘Loneliest Elephant’ Wins Bid for Freedom
An elephant from the Murghazar Zoo in Islamabad is set to be freed due to a May 21 ruling by the Pakistan High Court. Since 2016, many have worked tirelessly for the release of Kaavan, a 33-year-old Asian elephant from Sri Lanka, who’s only companion died around 8 years ago. “The pain and suffering of Kaavan must come to an end by relocating him to an appropriate elephant sanctuary,” the court wrote in its ruling. After seeing photos of the elephant living in terrible conditions and sometimes even chained, the world rushed into action, sending petitions to the Pakistani government. Kaavan came to Pakistan when he was only 1-year-old as a gift for the country’s leader at the time. After Kaavan’s only friend Saheli died in 2012, he has not been able to spend time with other elephants. His release will allow him to live his life among his peers.
