A SOLDIER'S LAST WORDS Lance Cpl. William "Billy" H. Crouse IV and his bomb-sniffing dog "Cane", were hit by a roadside bomb while on patrol in Afghanistan. While being lifted into the medevac, the wounded handler had the emotional wherewithal to insist the soldiers around him to save his dog. "'Get Cane in the Blackhawk!" Crouse cried out, before losing consciousness. Apparently, those were his last words. Neither Crouse nor Cane survived. God bless both of them.
It goes without saying that you should be careful around lions and other wild animals, but that doesn’t mean that they are un-feeling, cold-blooded killers. Frikkie Von Solms, a 69-year-old lion caretaker in Southern Africa, knows this perfectly well: he has spent the last 11 raising Zion, a gentle, tender and loving African lion.
