Lion Swipes at 1-Year-Old Boy

The video of an Oregon boy's visit to the zoo is getting national attention. A lioness, behind glass at the Portland Zoo, swipes and unsuccessfully tries to bite 1-year-old Jack. Keepers at the zoo think the toddler's striped jacket may have tricked the big cat into thinking Jack was a small zebra. Luckily the glass kept Jack out of harm's way.

That'll teach him to gripe.

A Siberian man angrily stormed off when his wife served him cold soup — only to get lost in the woods for more than a month, barely managing to survive.

"I thought I was going to die. The temperatures were sub-zero and I was getting really weak," he told local media, the U.K. Daily Mail reported.

Yuri Ticuic, 69, ate berries and leaves in the forest and eventually collapsed in a field beside a haystack, which he picked at for sustenance.

After over a month of eating hay for food and snow for water, Ticuic was found frost-bitten, weak and crippled by farm workers.

They took him to a hospital, where doctors said he was lucky to have survived and may have to have his severely frostbitten legs amputated.

"No matter what happens, that's the last time I criticize my wife's cooking. Anything is better than hay grain," he said.
