(TV5/KOKI/HC Investigations/KTRK/CNN) - Three animal stories in the news - python massage, a bear in tree, and ducks crossing an interstate.
Would you let a python give you a massage?
In the Philippines, at the Cebu City Zoo, pythons give massages.
Guests lie down on a bamboo bed, then the zoo keepers bring out four Burmese pythons.
The slithering motion is reportedly calming and therapeutic.
In case you're wondering, they feed these snakes beforehand.
Firefighters were called to a home to get a black bear out of a tree in Oklahoma.
The bear climbed up the backyard tree, and got stuck.
Crews tranquilized the bear, then firefighters went up to get him down.
After a health screening, the bear was to be released back into the wild.
In Houston, a group of ducklings brought a highway to a halt.
The mother duck didn't make it, but the 11 ducklings did. Drivers and other good Samaritans chased and caught the baby birds.
They've been taken to a rescue center, and traffic eventually got back to normal.
