Owl With Singed Wings Rescued From Silverado Fire

"This is our first victim of the Silverado Canyon Fires," says the Serrano Animal and Bird Hospital in a post on Facebook. Fortunately, this is one of the lucky animals who got rescued from the fires - an adorable little feisty owl who got his wings singed by the fire. 

He was found by the firefighters of the Orange County Fire Authority. In the beginning, the owl seemed to be entirely unable to move, exhausted, as the firefighters wrap it up in a yellow blanket. In a video released by the Orange County Fire Department twitter account, you can hear one of the firefighters say: "I'll get you some help, buddy." And we are just so, so glad this owl found its way into such good hands. 

The Serrano Animal and Bird Hospital reports on Facebook that the owl's injuries seem to mostly be burnt feathers. At first, they were unsure about the damage from the smoke inhalation, but a few days later, they posted that "[t]he little owl is still feisty as ever!" So, whatever the damage, the little guy is doing much, much better. 

The owl will stay in the hospital "until he molts new feathers," and then, he will be released back into the wild. We wish this cutie a quick recovery, and we are thankful to everyone involved in its rescue and hope that many, many more animals like this one will be rescued from the fires as well. 

Take a look at pictures of the owl below along with the video of its rescue. Another little guy who was rescued from California fires is a little adorable puppy, and you can read about them right here

Mountain Lion Cub Rescued From California Wildfires

A 3.75 pound mountain lion cub was rescued by firefighters from the California wildfires and is now being treated in the Oakland Zoo. This small cub was discovered in an area the Zogg Wildfire burned through, orphaned and with severe burns. Luckily, the lion was taken into immediate care and is doing much, much better today, eating on its own and acting all fierce and feisty.

But even within all the difficulty, some things we can still be grateful for. One of those things is Trooper - a small adorable puppy that was discovered in one of the areas damaged by the fires a few days ago.

California's Gender Reveal Fires Inspire Rage & Jokes On Twitter

Late summer has not been kind to California. The state's devastating wildfires have set a new record this year, with 2 million acres burned. Officials are calling the damage (and threat) unprecedented. And to add insult to injury, after investigations, it's become clear that the El Dorado Fires were caused by a gender reveal party.

The El Dorado Park fires in Yucaipa, just outside Los Angeles, have forced thousands to evacuate, and over 7000 acres have been scorched. The area has been suffering from an intense heat wave, making the decision of the expectant parents to use pyrotechnics for their stunt even more perplexing. The couple, whose identities have not been released, could end up paying millions in suppression costs, and could even go to jail. We've long thought that gender reveals are cringey and narcissistic practices. But now we've got some solid proof. And Twitter (obviously) has a lot to say about the matter. And most of it? Pretty funny.

Sixteen Mildly Insensitive Memes About The California Wildfires

In news that probably comes as a surprise to virtually no one, the state of California is once again on fire. The exact cause of the fires is not known for certain, but it's heavily suspected that PG&E, provider of natural gas and electricity to much of California, is behind it. PG&E has since implemented planned power outages in order to divert the fires from spreading further. Ironic, isn't it?

So while we all wait for this sh*t to blow over, let's sit back, mock PG&E, and browse through some memes.

Twitter's Freaking Out Over Violent Family Fight At Disneyland

Disneyland went straight Worldstarhiphop on Saturday when a wild brawl broke out between feuding family members. The fight, which occurred at the bustling Toon Town area of the park, lasted a whopping five minutes and involved an impressive cast of characters. Passerbys were shocked to see men and women being struck down until Disney security, who took eons to respond, arrived to cool the situation down. 

Twitter user @KassieMe made a viral flow chart of the parties involved, and updated the internet with the action (very little) that had been taken in the wake of the brawl. Many people are admonishing the police and the Disneyland park for their apparent inability to take action in this matter, especially considering there were innocent children involved. You can view the insane video, and the best reactions, below.

Kim K Just Announced That She Wants To Be A Lawyer And Twitter Is Pretty Shook Over It

Welp, Kim Kardashian just dropped this total bombshell on the world in her interview with Vogue Magazine: she wants to be an attorney like her dad Robert Kardashian, most famously known as OJ Simpson's attorney. 

The reality TV star has apparently been studying secretly in an apprenticeship at a San Francisco law firm for the past year. She plans to sit for the bar exam in 2022.

People have been roasting Kim K for the fact that she did not go to law school or even obtain an undergraduate degree. Some have even compared her to Lori Loughlin's spoiled daughter, saying that she could simply buy her way in to the legal field.

Interestingly, a law degree is not required for one to become a lawyer in the state of California. An alternate option, like in Kim's case, is to complete a four-year apprenticeship before taking the bar exam.

The following is what Twitter has been saying about the situation!
