Army veteran Michael Hammons was arrested for saving a dog's life.

The Athens, Georgia, man heard people in a parking lot talking about a distressed dog stuck in the backseat of a hot Mustang and decided to take action, reports WXIA.

Instead of waiting for police with the rest of the bystanders, Hammons grabbed the leg of his wife's wheelchair and smashed the car's window to let the animal out.

"I've got PTSD, and I've seen enough death and destruction," Hammons, a veteran of Desert Storm, told the news station. "I didn't want anything else to happen if I could prevent it."

Kate Mara Partners with Oceana to Help Save Marine Life

Whales, dolphins and other marine life are dying needlessly in our oceans, and Kate Mara wants you to know about it.

The actress stars in a new PSA for Oceana, which explains how these majestic creatures lose their lives in nets that are meant to capture swordfish.

"A mile wide and a hundred feet deep, drift gillnets are virtually invisible and catch ocean wildlife indiscriminately," Mara tells Oceana in an interview. "They snare – and regularly kill – sharks, whales, sea turtles and many other marine animals that swim in its path. In fact, the drift gillnet fishery often discards 60 percent of animals caught in these nets!"

Not that she's complaining. Judging by the adorable photos on her Instagram feed, her love for Nancy the miniature Pomeranian is immense – so great that she can't resist taking the pup everywhere (and in all honesty, if we had a dog this cute neither could we).

"She is like having a real [baby]," Osbourne wrote on Instagram May 1. "I have not slept a full night since we got her, she has to eat every 3 hours!"

But seriously, who needs sleep when you have a dog this cute? Nancy is living proof that Puppy Insomnia is very real.

Getting stuck on Highway 101 is definitely something to hoot about.

That's what one owl learned last Friday when it was apparently hit by a vehicle and found itself injured near the center divider of the California highway, The Press Democrat reports.

California Highway Patrolman Justin Fetterly responded to the call about the barn owl, and when he arrived at the scene, he cornered the bird with fellow officer Brian Wood. Fetterly used an emergency blanket to scoop up the bird and then drove with it in his lap to a nearby emergency animal hospital in Santa Rosa.
