Poor Lion Gets his Head Stuck

This big cat made a big mistake when he tried to squeeze his head into a tiny hole on the side of a large food bucket. Workers put meat in a green container for the lions to feed on in a zoo in the Netherlands.

But when one unlucky lion tried to reach the remaining leftovers at the bottom of the barrel he got his head trapped. The poor animal panicked and tried to frantically tried to free himself.

As the video begins zookeepers can be seen filling a bucket with food while the enclosure is empty.
The lions are released back into the pen and immediately begin sniffing around the new item that has appeared in their cage.

After they eat the majority of the food and there are only leftovers remaining, one of the big cats sticks his head through a slit on the side of the barrel to get the last few bites. He soon realizes he's stuck and begins thrashing around - bashing into trees and thumping the container off the ground.

The other two lions start chasing him and try to help by putting their paws on the bucket. 

As the video continues, his lion friends get fed up and go back to lounging around, but the poor animal continues to struggle for the remainder of the video.

According to an onlooker, a vet came shortly after the video ended and freed the animal, which was unharmed.

Undercover Israeli Officers Clash with Arab Mob

Undercover Border Police officers broke up a riot of hundreds of Arabs on the outskirts of Ramallah in Judea and Samaria Wednesday.

Approximately 400 rioters burned tires and threw Molotov cocktails and stones at security forces during the disturbance.

Undercover Border Police officers broke up the riot and arrested three rioters. The officers dressed as Arabs and hid among the rioters in order to break up the riot and carry out the arrest.

One of the undercover officers threw a smoke grenade, causing many of the rioters to flee. The IDF was then able to disperse the rest of the rioters.

One of the rioters was arrested immediately after throwing a firebomb. When the three were arrested, another Arab threw a stone at the security forces. The officers responded fired at his lower body.

The suspects were interrogated by security forces.

An IDF Spokesperson stated that "the IDF and the security forces will continue to act in order to prevent terrorism, to maintain security in the area and to thwart key terrorist elements."

Arab riots and protests have occurred across Judea and Samaria since US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel last week.
