Just in time for the Video Wednesday blog post, news came in on Tuesday of a double cow escape attempt in my neck of the world, near Victoria on Vancouver Island. Click on the link below to get all the details from CBC News:

Angry cows escape in BC

Sadly, there is no happy ending to this story, so some of you may not wish to see the short video showing their recapture.

But if I were to make any comparison to the story of Audrey (cow) is that according to the article, these cows were able to get loose from the truck because the pin on the latch had mysteriously been removed. And that’s kind of interesting.

Video Wednesdays: Honey Badger Houdini

Here is a video clip of another animal that refuses to be kept impounded. If what we are being told is true (and there is always a question mark for me when what we’re watching is edited), then Snuffles, the honey badger, is a remarkable escape artist, constantly innovating in response to each new obstacle put before him.

Video Wednesdays: Marshmallow the Cat Escapes from Vet

Keeping with the theme of animal escapes, it seems fitting to slip in a few videos demonstrating the forethought, craftiness and dexterity of different animals, not to mention the patient determination as seen here with Marshmallow.

If you’ve read Audrey (cow) already, then you will now know that there is more than one way to open a latch.

Video Wednesdays: Eddie as a Pup

Lisa, a reader of Audrey (cow) from Massachusetts, recently wrote in to suggest the following video for our regular Wednesday post. In her own words, she thinks “this puppy Zoey has a similar spirit to Eddie”. I would have to agree. Thank you for the contribution, Lisa! And now, without further ado, I give you Zoey and mirror:

Video Wednesdays: Winter Show-offs

As Canadians, we do tend to see ourselves as winter-ready, seasoned in the ways of coping with brutal temperatures and an abundance of snow*. Not so fast, fellow Canucks. There are other northerners who manage the extremes much better than us. Behold the mountain goat, the pronghorn, the arctic fox, the grizzly and the pika – surviving  the elements with amazing skill (except for the fox who in all honesty looks kind of funny when he’s hunting).

*full disclosure: I live on the west coast, otherwise known as the wet coast. We rarely get snow although we’ve heard of it and seen pictures. 🙂 Do you have an idea for a good animal video to share? Then I’d love to hear from you. Drop me a line on the CONTACT page.

Video Wednesdays: Interview with a Guinea Pig

Something a bit goofy this week but certainly in keeping with the talking animal premise of Audrey (cow).

And here I thought I was weird for walking around the house talking in cow voices all the time. At least I wasn’t lip-syncing to my pets. So please remove that straight-jacket, doctor!

Video Wednesdays: Autistic man builds feline fun house

Wednesdays can be tough, stuck in the middle of the week as they are. So what better day to show an animal video!

Here is a person totally devoted to his cats’ comfort and joy in return for the affection and understanding that they give him. Look at this amazing ongoing creative project he’s been working on.

Video Wednesdays: Sharing lunch with a polite pig

Wednesdays can be tough, stuck in the middle of the week as they are. So what better day to show an animal video!

I certainly could not imagine Buster being satisfied with a few bites of salad, but this little pig shows much more calm and patience than some cats I’ve known. Just click on the line below.
