This results in significant delays in bringing patients to hospitals, and high rates of advanced stage cancers and mortality. (Photo by Omar Havana)

Lion, Tiger, Bear

They make an unlikely trio, but Baloo the bear, Leo the lion and Shere Khan the tiger have forged an unusually strong bond.
Considering that they would be mortal enemies if they ever were to meet in the wild, it is stunning to see their unique and genuine friendship in these intimate pictures.
Rescued eight years ago during a police drugs raid in Atlanta, Georgia, the three friends were only cubs at the time at barely two months old.

Rock Fishing In Sydney

A fisherman is seen standing on a cliff edge at Cape Bank in La Perouse on February 20, 2011 in Sydney, Australia. The practice of fishing from rock platforms, cliffs and rocky outcrops is notoriously dangerous with many anglers per year being washed into the ocean by dangerous surf or unexpected large waves. Angling is often reported as the sport having the highest mortality rate on average due to fishermen drowning with rocking fishing contributing to a high number of these deaths.
