This impressive catch was captured by stunned beachgoer John Bailey while he was walking in Sebastian Inlet State Park. Bailey says he spied the animal fishing in the water and that seconds later it was pouncing on its prey. The hunted turned out to be a 3-to-4-ft.-long shark, which the big cat hauled onto the beach.

A mother's love is just as powerful on four paws, and here are the photos to prove it.

Since August, the animal rights group has been in Peru, working to raid the country's circuses and send the animals kept there to new and healthy homes. When ADI came across Kiara and her cubs, the mom was separated from her babies, who were left to fend for themselves in a cage with an aggressive male lion.
