18 Unlucky Moments with Lucky Animals

St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner, and one way to celebrate this holiday is to recognize the "Luck of the Irish." There are many animals that are considered to bring good fortune across multiple cultures...but they don't all have what seems to be that good ol' Irish luck. Here are a number of lucky animals that aren't living up to their reputation.

    Frogs have been a sign of prosperity and the bringers of rain for rich and bountiful crops. They're also a symbol of safe travel...I don't think this kind of travel is what a frog would consider "safe."

    Seeing a lizard scurrying away is said to be a sign to tell you to flee trouble as well, before it occurs...this kitten didn't take the hint.

    It's true that the pig is respected by the Irish for an ancient tale of a shepherd whose pig herd always replenished itself and never lost a member. I guess this guy was getting in the way of replenishing the herd...

    Bears have always been considered by the Native Americans to be a lucky catch for their ability to feed and sustain a family for many years. Perhaps this bear is a little too lucky with its catch of that day's salmon...

    Rabbits have always been a symbol of strong fertility. I guess it's not so lucky to be around them when they're suffering from erectile disfunction.
