Hi everyone, it’s Katrina.
The prehistoric people who lived in what is today Malta were some of the best Temple Builders of their time.
One of the greatest examples of their Advanced Techniques still around today is the Nidra complex.
This Ancient Temple joined astrology with architecture in one of the best representations of an ancient Observatory.
At the equinoxes in March and September, the sunrise perfectly illuminates the central Corridor in the South Temple, and during the solstices in June and December, the sunrise lines up perfectly as well.
Somehow, the Builders of this Temple knew exactly which parts of the structure they wanted to be illuminated during the solstices and the equinoxes and which parts they wish to remain dark.
In other words, not only did they have advanced knowledge of the stars, but also of building.
This is especially impressive when you remember that Malta was a Chieftain Society.
They built this Temple Way way back in 3600 Bc, over 5000 years ago.
Back then, the people here were ruled by a class of priests rather than an actual system of government.
They even installed small vertical holes where light would slip through in the temple, likely as a primitive calendar that tracked the seasons.
Experts believe the builders probably had to work at night and use the star cluster called Pleiades as a type of Rough Guide, making sure all their structures were lining up perfectly.
However, they managed.
This structure is a feat of incredibly Advanced ancient engineering: ancient air conditioning.
Air conditioning came about in its modern form in 1902, but for thousands of years before that people still enjoyed air conditioning.
They just did it in a very different way.
For example, it’s believed that the ancient Egyptians were the first ones to experiment with cooling their homes.
When the Egyptians were dealing with scorching temperatures, which was most of the time, they would hang wet mats over their doorways.
This might sound kind of silly, but it’s pretty scientific.
When the water from the wet mass evaporated, heat got sucked out of the house.
The Primitive yet ingenious method also added moisture to the air, which helped to cool people down in the extremely dry climate.
In the Roman Empire, air conditioning became even more advanced.
The wealthiest of the Romans used their aqueducts to circulate cold, fresh water through pipes inside the walls of their houses.
This was extremely effective at keeping the inside of their homes much cooler than outside.
For those who couldn’t afford these cold water pipes, they were forced to congregate at public baths to stay cool.
But if we go a little further in time.
The Han Dynasty also had a unique take on air conditioning.
From 200 BC until 220 AD, the White Horse Temple had its own cooling Hall, where rotary fans powered by water kept the elite members of society cool during the summer.
And finally, Persians built wind towers to keep themselves cool.
These towers had windows that allowed air to sweep through, pushing colder air into people’s houses and sucking warmer air out.
Maya water treatment system.
Scientists investigating the Maya city of Tikal deep in the jungle of Guatemala have found evidence of an ancient water treatment system.
The Maya were using a mineral called zeolite to treat water, much like we do today with fluoride.
They poured this mineral into a special treatment system to filter any kind of harmful organisms or toxic elements from the water supply.
As far as scientists are concerned, this is the oldest known example of water treatment anywhere in North America.
Scientists made the amazing Discovery by collecting sediment cores from three different drinking water reservoirs.
These reservoirs stored water from between 2200 and 1100 years ago, including during the peak of Tikal, when it had about 60 000 residents.
All those people were drinking from the reservoirs placed around the city.
The mineral analysis of the sediment sample showed the presence of zeolite, which scientists know today is capable of trapping contaminants in drinking water.
It’s even used in some of the most modern water purification systems.
But how in the world did people 2 000 years ago know about a mineral that could trap chemicals in water?
We’re not entirely sure, but we do know, thanks to scientists from the University of Cincinnati, that the zeolite was taken from a mineral deposit about 19 miles from the city.
The main Theory scientists have now is that the Mayan knew that the water found near the zeolite Source was a lot healthier than the stuff they had in their reservoirs.
They realized that by taking the zeolite deposits and using them in Tcall, they could make their own water pure and safer to drink.
An ancient well, an ancient well found in the Czech Republic, may just be the oldest piece of surviving wooden architecture anywhere in the world.
It survived for 7 200 years because it spent most of that time underwater, away from oxygen.
The well itself is lined with Oak.
It was found beside a check Motorway back in 2018 and it only goes about 4.5 feet deep.
Researchers are still struggling to figure out its history, but it’s pretty clear that this advanced piece of technology may have been one of the very first wooden Wells ever made to understand when the well came from.
An archaeological team analyzed the Rings found in the wood and radiocarbon dated the material.
The well was made from oak trees in 5255 Bc.
This was near the end of the Neolithic period, a time when humans first started farming.
According to the analysis of the structure, whoever built this thing had a shockingly sophisticated understanding of Technology.
It actually looks more like something that the Romans would have built some 5 000 years later and, to make things even more bizarre, nobody has any idea how the farmers managed to create such an advanced structure.
To us, it’s just a wooden well that farmers use to gather water, but it would have required Precision, craftsmanship and complicated tools that Neolithic people simply didn’t have remember.
These guys were using rock tools.
They were hardly even out of the Stone Age and were still carving axes from animal horns.
How do you think primitive Europeans over 7 000 years ago figured out how to make a well of the same quality the Romans were building much later?
Let me know any theories you might have in the comments and don’t forget to subscribe before you leave.
Central heating was just one of the Great Inventions thought up by the ancient Greeks.
Believe it or not.
The Greeks were the first people to implement indoor heating, with other cultures copying and adding more Innovations.
The Greeks used fire for their central heating system.
They figured out how to push heat from a fire through pipes into different rooms inside of a certain building.
The pipes would be hidden under the floor so that the heat would radiate up, keeping their feet nice and toasty.
It would also fill the room with Pleasant heat, just like any house today that has underfloor heating.
It’s really the same concept that we use today.
The only major difference is that with the ancient Greeks, the fire needed to be constantly maintained.
This tedious task was usually given to the household slaves.
Back then, central heating wasn’t totally without its victims.
The first structures- the earliest human building project ever has- has been discovered deep in a French cave.
Neanderthal Builders lived in the region a very long time ago.
We just talked about a well that was over 7 000 years old, but these structures go back 175 000 years ago.
That’s actually 100 000 years before modern humans came to exist in Europe.
Keep in mind just how old these structures are.
Archaeologists found that neanderthals yanked over 400 stalagamites from the ceiling of the cave and then stacked them on top of each other to produce what could be the very first walls ever made by humanoid hands.
It really was just as simple as a wall: just a few layers of stalagmites wedge to form a barrier about 21 feet across.
But still it shows that even before humans evolved into humans, we were setting our sights on greatness and, maybe, privacy.
According to archaeologists Maurice aresi, this wall is different from anything the experts have ever seen before.
Nobody is quite sure what the structure was used for, though parts of it were found blackened from Heat.
This has led some to suspect that neanderthals may have been trying to embed fireplaces in the walled structure, both to keep themselves warm and to illuminate the cave and Stave Off the Darkness.
The Cloaca Maxima.
The Cloaca Maxima is by far the best example of a sewer system used by ancient Rome.
In fact, it’s been called the greatest sewer system in the world, continuously in use since the 6th Century Bc.
Back then, it was an effective water drainage system for the city of Rome, so effective and so great that they literally named it Cloaca Maxima, or the greatest sewer.
Today, this is one of the oldest monuments in the city, although it doesn’t really attract tourists like the Coliseum or the pantheon.
It was built during the reign of Tarquinius Priscus, originally intended for emptying marshlands and carrying storm water out of the center of the city in into the river tiver.
300 years after its Inception, it became a sewage system as waste from public baths and latrines were redirected through the Cloaca Maxima.
The sewer system continued to expand under the rule of Augustus Caesar.
In the first century.
He expanded the system to include the flow from 11 major aqueducts.
Parts of the sewer were restored during the Renaissance.
In 2012, robots inspected its interior and today there is extensive maintenance being done so that it can continue being used, bringing water to the desert.
A team of archaeologists and the remote Highlands of Yemen have discovered evidence of an ancient irrigation system from 5200 years ago.
This is direct proof of advanced irrigation techniques from a time when human beings were transitioning from hunting and herding to settling down and growing crops.
And this wasn’t just one piece of an irrigation system.
The members of the archaeological team discovered 100 and 74 ancient irrigation structures.
According to Michael harrower from the Department of anthropology at the University of Toronto, the earliest farmers in the region of Wadi Sana faced massive environmental challenges.
There was barely enough water for them to grow crops, so they managed themselves to develop hydrology techniques to capture water runoff from Summer monsoons.
With these techniques, they succeeded in transforming the desert into a lush Oasis, and while irrigation systems might sound pretty boring, the truth is that by bringing water to the desert, these people were able to eat food grown as a result of regular water access and prosper.
This meant huge and Powerful.
Ancient cities rose up around irrigation Technologies.
If it wasn’t for irrigation, the most impressive ancient civilizations of the Middle East may have never existed.
Who invented the compass?
One of the greatest inventions of all time?
Time is also one of the most overlooked.
I’m talking about the compass, a pretty mundane device these days, and if you don’t quite know how a compass works, I’ll quickly explain it.
The compass consists of a magnetic needle that, when placed horizontally, will automatically Point itself at the magnetic field of the earth, directed north to south.
It was the Han Dynasty in China that first learned how to use the Earth’s magnetic fields to develop their own compasses.
This was around the first Century AD, but they didn’t use it for navigation right away.
At first it was used for all kinds of Hocus Pocus, like divination, geomancy and fortune telling.
It wasn’t for some time that people learned it could also be used to orient yourself and for navigation.
The Chinese made their earliest compasses out of lodestone, a type of mineral magnetite.
In fact, the very first Compass ever was literally a lump of the stone tied to a rope and left hanging.
The compass as we know it today more or less wasn’t used until the 11th century by the Chinese military for navigational purposes, and from there the compass quickly spread into Europe.
It dramatically improved the world of sailing, since now the captain actually knew where his ship was going.
Ships could now sail all year without having to rely on the sun and stars for orientation.
Conquering the world with roads.
The first major road in the world was the Appian Way, developed by the Romans in 312 Bc.
It was used as a Supply route between the Republic of Rome and its allies in Kapwa while Rome was knee-deep in the second samnite war.
But the Appian Way worked so well that building roads became wildly important to the Roman Empire and one of the main reasons for their success.
As the Roman Legions burned a trail through Europe, they built highways to link all their captured cities with their capital of Rome.
This is where the saying all roads lead to Rome come from because when Rhodes first came into resistance, they all literally LED back to Rome.
Soldiers could move very quickly, Traders could follow the roads from town to town and the world was propelled blindingly fast into the age of globalization.
But the Romans also made their roads incredibly well.
The design was impressive, with retaining walls on either side of the road and three foot trenches.
The bottom section was made of leveled Earth or sand, then a layer of small stones, a foundation of crushed rock and gravel and a surface layer of hard Blocks made from either gravel or volcanic lava.
And yes, many of these roads still exist today.
The one I just told you about at the beginning, the Appian Way, is still around right now and almost perfectly preserved.
Roman roads were even used up until the 19th century in a lot of places in Europe.
The Fosse way in Britain is still used by bikes and foot traffic, while many Roman roads line the sides of modern highways.
Sutton who’s treasure Workshop.
Archaeologists have made yet another incredible Discovery.
At Sutton who, one of England’s biggest and most important archaeological sites, they found evidence of metal working inside of a medieval Workshop.
They believe the workshop may be the same place where most of the artifacts from the famous Sutton, who burial mounds were crafted.
Sutton, who is to this day considered the greatest archaeological Discovery in the United Kingdom, originally excavated back in 1939.
This same year, Germany invaded Poland.
The time was chaotic for obvious reasons, and the poorly timed Discovery put this wealth of archaeological knowledge at Great risk.
The actual burials at Sutton, who date back to the 6th Century AD.
The biggest and most important burial is that of an Anglo-Saxon King buried along with the remains of a huge ship that was over 88 feet long.
The king’s burial also came complete with an underground chamber stocked to the brim with treasure.
Now, just three miles from the buried ship and the Ancient King, archaeologists found the very site where most of these grave goods were likely crafted.
Volunteers with the Suffolk County Council archaeological service found fragments of spindle whirls, discarded fragments of a large Loom and melted pieces of metal.
They even discovered smelting ore and slag, which all points to a group of Craftsmen working to produce metal at the ruined site.
It’s believed those buried at Sutton who lived in the nearby Ai city of Rendlesham, very close to where this ancient Factory was found, and if they were living there, it makes sense that their most precious belongings were made there as well a spiral in the universe.
Astronomers have discovered a gas giant out in space that has only one million years left of its life, and while a million years may seem like a long time, it’s really not.
For most Celestial things in the universe, stars and planets typically live for billions of years.
This gas giant is about twice the mass of Jupiter and is orbiting so close to its host star that is gradually being pulled right into it.
Researchers have named it toi2337b, and it’s one of three hot planets that researchers found orbiting at a perilous proximity to their son.
What makes the discovery so incredible is that, according to Samuel Grunblatt, with the American Museum of Natural History, as recently as only 10 years ago no one in the Scientific Fields thought a planet like this could exist.
It’s essentially brushing up against its host star.
It takes the Earth one year to revolve around the sun, and it takes this planet just six days to do the same thing.
Out of the thousands of exoplanets astronomers have found, this one has the shortest lifespan.
It’s currently in a death spiral and will soon, in Galactic terms, plunge into its own star.
Horde of Celtic gold.
In northeastern Germany, a volunteer archaeologist discovered an ancient stash of Celtic coins.
000 Years Ago
There were 41 of the coins found in total, minted over 2 000 years ago.
This is now the first ever gold treasure from the Celts found in Brandenburg.
What makes the coin so fascinating is that they aren’t what you might expect.
They don’t look like modern coins or even like most ancient coins.
They are curved, looking like tiny cups, May made of gold.
Scientists call them rainbow cups and believe they may be tied to the legend of a pot of gold being found at the end of the Rainbow.
It’s where they get their name.
Thousands of years ago, peasants working in the fields likely found some of these ancient coins after a rainfall.
Freed from the dirt they had been trapped in, they believed the coins fell out of the sky rather than being revealed from the dirt.
This turned rainbow coins into Lucky Charms and spawned the myth of a pot of gold at the end of the Rainbow.
The volunteer archaeologists found 10 of these coins in the field of a local Farm.
Then called in the professionals, they brought the total up to 41 and were able to date them to being minted sometime around 125 Bc.
This was the late Iron Age, at a time when the Celts occupied huge portions of what is now England, France, Austria and Southern Germany.
It was also a time when the Roman Conquest was going on and many of the Celts were being wiped out by the Roman Legions.
But what’s really strange is that Celts never lived in Brandenburg.
This means the Rainbow cups must have made it there on their own, probably through an ancient training route.
How do you think these lucky coins ended up here?
Tell me your theory in the comments.
Creatures on the run.
As you may already know, life on Earth is its most diverse at the equator.
Biodiversity increases the closer you get to the equator and decreases the farther north or south of that line of demarcation that you go.
This includes both creatures on land and in the ocean.
The phenomenon is known as the latitudinal biodiversity gradient.
But here’s the thing: it hasn’t always been this way.
Studies looking at the evolution of animals near the equator found that there were different intervals of biodiversity.
There were actually a few times when the biodiversity became higher at altitudes further away from the equator.
These events are all linked to the biggest mass extinction events.
Scientists have found, by looking back in geological time, that animals migrated North in times of great stress to flee the changing climate Whenever there is ice present at both poles.
Biodiversity peaks in the equatorial regions, like the rainforest of the Amazon and central Africa, but when the earth warms up and all that ice melts, life migrates to the higher and lower levels to escape the heat.
What’s really terrifying is that scientists have predicted that as global temperatures continue to rise, animals are going to begin to disperse.
They will move from equatorial regions to higher or lower ground, just like they did during the Permian Extinction event of 251 millions of years ago.
There’s been a lot of talk recently about this sixth mass extinction currently in effect.
Scientists say We’ll shortly see the dispersal of life from all the most biologically Rich regions.
There are also those that say there is evidence that this has already begun to occur.
Dinosaur eggs: a group of paleontologists from the University of Toronto made an amazing Discovery by examining a fossil bed in the Yunnan province of China.
The group discovered a set of fossilized dinosaur eggs that are believed to be the oldest ever seen by human eyes.
And that’s not all.
Inside the dinosaur egg nest they found the perfectly preserved remains of dinosaur embryos inside the crushed and cracked eggs.
These eggs come from the late Jurassic Period, roughly 190 million years ago.
This was the peak of long-necked herbivore type dinosaurs.
Based on the evidence discovered, scientists concluded that in the Yunnan Province there was a beast called Lufengosaurus that laid eggs roughly the size of softballs.
One of these dinosaurs chose its nesting site beside a river just before a flood.
The flood came down, smothering the eggs with the intact embryos inside and preserving them in sediment for millions of years.
Even more exciting for us is that the flood caught the embryos at different stages of development, giving scientists a clear view of how these dinosaur eggs developed.
For example, scientists were able to see just how similar dinosaurs really were to their relatives, modern Birds.
They found evidence that the dinosaurs moved inside their eggs just like birds do.
It’s actually the same way: developing mammals move inside their mother’s womb.
It’s only the first time this has been documented in a fossilized animal, making it one of the most incredible prehistoric discoveries to date.
Rare Roman dagger.
An amateur archaeologist uncovered a rare Roman dagger buried under nearly two feet of soil.
Experts say it was probably buried in the dirt as an offering to the Gods.
The amateur archaeologist is actually a dental student named Lucas Schmidt.
He made the discovery totally by chance and it triggered a full-scale investigation by professionals.
They uncovered a few more artifacts, most of which point to a battle between Roman troops and the local Reiti people.
Putting all the artifacts together, archaeologists believe they know which historical battle this was.
It happened in the year 15 Bc when Emperor Augustus ordered the suppression and eradication of the Reiti.
This was a confederation of tribes living in the Alpine region of Switzerland, Italy, Germany and Austria.
The Romans absolutely destroyed them on the battlefield.
It was popular back, when the Romans squashed their enemy, to bury offerings in the blood-soaked soil to their gauze as thanks.
Archaeologists believe the silver and Brass Roman dagger was buried on purpose by the Commanding Legionnaire to give praise to the Roman God of War.
Water vapor on super Neptune.
Water vapor has been detected on a super Neptune planet.
That’s a lot to unpack in just one sentence, so I’ll back it up a bit.
A recently discovered planet slightly larger than Neptune is orbiting a red dwarf star 150 light years away from us.
It’s currently one of the only planets ever found that contains water vapor in its atmosphere.
The planet’s name is Toi674b and its star is relatively cool and only about half the size of our sun.
This is one of the reasons scientists are able to study it so well.
As the enormous Planet crosses in front of its small star, Starlight shines through its atmosphere and illuminates it, making it visible via our telescopes here on Earth.
Astronomers can look at it in great detail with instruments called spectrographs.
This reveals gases present in the planet’s atmosphere, which is how scientists are able to figure all this stuff out.
It was actually the famous Hubble telescope that was able to measure the light spectrum from this super Neptune planet.
Astronomers then took the data and figured out that there is actual water vapor in its atmosphere.
What this means, however, is a little foggy.
We can’t say for sure if it actually has liquid water on the surface, making it a hotbed for life.
All we know is that there is water in the atmosphere, so the possibilities are potentially endless until we learn more.
Archaeologists made an incredible Discovery in Peru.
In an ancient warty Outpost from 1100 years ago, they found evidence of a hallucinogenic alcohol that may have been used in politics as a way to help Foster alliances.
The substance they discovered is called chicha, something you can still find in South America today at just about any local bar.
But while today, Chicha is alcoholic and nothing more, it was once filled with hallucinogenic drugs.
A new study says that the peaceful and easy feeling you get when drinking Chicha and using hallucinogens was key to wielding political power along the coast.
For a bit of background, the Wadi culture ruled most of the Peruvian coast and the southern Andes starting in the year 600 and ending around the year 100.
The elite members of society often hosted parties for the neighboring Chiefs and rulers.
During these parties, copious amounts of Chicha were consumed, and while everybody already knew this, the new discovery at The Outpost showed that there was an extra punch in the punch bowl.
Archaeologists came across the preserved remains of food and drink at Kilcapampa.
The site was abandoned in the 9th Century AD and the residents left a lot behind.
Archaeologists found traces of potatoes, peanuts, quinoa and fruits from the mole tree.
These fruits were used to make chicha with an alcohol content of only five percent.
But Among The Boiled fruits, archaeologists also found Vilca seeds.
These seeds were used as hallucinogens in South America, but reserved for the political Elite.
According to National Geographic, this is all perfectly good evidence that the political Fat Cats of the Wadi were hosting parties with substances to try and befriend their neighbors.
Chariot from Pompeii.
One of the most incredible archaeological discoveries of 2021 happened in Italy, researchers found the remains of a perfectly preserved Chariot, once drawn by four horses as part of elaborate ceremonies.
They found it in the destroyed city of Pompeii, brought to ruin
2 000 Years Ago by a devastating volcanic eruption.
The Chariot, crafted of wood and Tin, was probably used in processions, at festivals and for other ceremonial purposes, but because of its amazing preservation, researchers were able to really recreate what it would have looked like thousands of years ago.
For example, they could tell that it was painted black and red.
They even found traces of ropes that were once used in the horse’s harnesses.
It was still sitting in the Portico in front of the stable when archaeologists identified it.
They also came across the remains of three horses, with one still in its harness.
It looks as if somebody was gearing The Chariot up for a quick Escape when they were covered in hot ash from the erupting volcano and killed a bomb from World War One.
A grenade from the first world war, was discovered in a Bay Area home just a few weeks ago.
According to the Los Altos Police Department, a homeowner found the grenade sitting in their elderly relative’s bedroom.
The homeowner was so shocked by the surprising discovery that they phoned the police, who then brought in the bomb squad.
The bomb Squad identified the weapon as a vintage grenade from the Great War and potentially still dangerous.
Four neighboring homes had to be evacuated while the bomb squad detonate, created the thing in the backyard.
Luckily there was no damage and nobody was blown to pieces.
The strangest part about the discovery is that it was made at all.
You might expect a leftover grenade from World War Ii sitting in a veteran’s closet, but this thing was made sometime around 1915..
A spokesperson at the national World War One Museum and Memorial, Karis Irwin, said grenades from that war were primarily manufactured in France, Germany and the United States.
It’s not that surprising to think that in a 200 year old house someone forgot a grenade inside one of the walls or in a Dusty old box underneath one of the beds.
Mountain lion attack in Colorado.
While Trevor Brown was elk hunting in Colorado, he kept hearing rustling in the bushes behind him.
At first he just assumed it was either a deer or an elk moving around in the forest, but he couldn’t shake the notion that something was wrong.
As it turned out, that dark feeling in his gut was his body, giving a very real warning of danger.
Trevor had been at the same Ridge for about a week, watching Elk cross below him and waiting for the right opportunity to make his kill.
But since he was going back to the same place again and again, other local Predators learned that he was there.
One of them was a mountain lion, which pursued him to the Ridge and waited for its chance to attack.
This was the animal that he heard rustling around in the bushes behind him.
When he finally got up to investigate, unable to sit with that uneasy feeling in his gut, he found himself staring into the eyes of a hungry lion.
It was standing no more than 10 feet, three meters away from him.
The situation proved even more immediately dangerous than you might expect.
Even though Trevor had a gun with him, the weapon wasn’t nearby.
All he had for defense in the moment was a bow and arrow.
Lucky for him, he reacted quickly enough to stop the huge cat before it pounced.
Like a skilled Bow Hunter, he pulled back an arrow a aimed and released.
His shot went straight through the mountain lion and killed it just a fraction of a second before the cat had an opportunity to pounce.
His accuracy with the bow meant that Trevor had escaped what could have been a fatal attack.
Have you ever seen a mountain lion close up?
Let me know in the comments below.
A man in Crawford County, Pennsylvania, suffered a life-threatening injury after he was shot in the chest by another deer hunter.
According to the Pennsylvania Game commissioner, Lawrence s pavalco, 58 years old, was blasted in his chest with a .30-0-6 rifle by another Hunter who mistook him for a deer.
He was recently recovering from surgery at the Harnett Medical Center.
Shockingly, this was only one of three incidents in just two weeks in Western Pennsylvania in which Hunters were accidentally shot.
The two other incidents were fatal.
Just a few days before Lawrence was shot by by a fellow Hunter, a 72 year old man in Cambria County was shot by a family member while they were hunting along an old gas line.
The family member was a juvenile.
He fired A 234 caliber rifle at what he thought was a deer, but it wasn’t a deer.
The bullet traveled 300 yards, 274 meters, and struck William Tripp, killing him immediately.
The other fatality involved a retired police officer while he and a friend were hunting black bears in Warren County.
He was also killed.
It was the same awful story.
Gary R hunt was shot by his nephew after he somehow mistook the elder man for a black bear.
He too died on the scene.
What do you think caused so many similar accidental deaths in the same area?
Let me know your theories.
Below the deer that wouldn’t die, in Arkansas, a hunter met his ultimate adversary, a deer that simply refused to die Ai.
Unfortunately for the hunter, his face off with this seemingly Immortal deer left him dead.
According to the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, the Hunter died after he shot the deer, thought the deer was dead and unfortunately was killed by his would-be prey.
Keith Stevens, chief of communications for the commission, told news outlets that after 20 years of work, this is one of the more unusual things he’s encountered.
The victim was 66 year old Thomas Alexander.
He shot a buck out in Yellville at about 6: 30 pm, then called a family member to brag about it.
About an hour later he contacted that same family member and said that he was injured and in desperate need of assistance.
That family member called 9-1-1 and got emergency responders to the site, but it didn’t do any good and Alexander died in the hospital just a little while later.
Doctors say he came in with several puncture wounds and an autopsy revealed these wounds to be the cause of death.
What happened is that Thomas thought the deer was dead and approached the animal, but the Barker was still alive and it lashed out with its antlers, Goring Thomas to death.
In the end, both the Hunter and the deer died before the day was done.
A very sad horse in Hawaii, a horse that was minding her own business, found herself being attacked by a pack of hunting dogs.
The unfortunate horse belongs to a family in Hakapu and this family is absolutely Furious.
Sue and Richard Gertin couldn’t believe it when their 21 year old Tennessee Walker Palomino, a beautiful horse named Keel was just about killed by the dogs while inside her stall.
The attack went down.
At about 4: 15 in the morning on a Saturday, a neighbor heard barking and assumed it was a pig hunter out with their pack of hounds, but when they didn’t hear any squealing, they knew something was wrong.
All they heard was deer and heavy grunting.
The grants were coming from Keel, who was completely helpless, as 10 hunting dogs managed to get inside of her stall and start tearing her apart.
The poor horse was stuck in her pen and had no way of Defending herself.
She suffered injuries to her legs, her face and her rump.
By the time a human figured out what was going on and went to help the horse.
She was in horrible shape and bleeding profusely.
When our veterinarian was called in to assess the damage, the family was informed that the horse was likely bleeding internally.
Sadly, this wasn’t even the first instance of a family pet being attacked by hunting dogs.
In Hakapu, one of the neighbors had their family pet, a pot belly pig, badly injured during a similar incident.
The locals have since sent out a warning to Hunters to stay away from their properties.
To make matters more frustrating, a hunter who was caught by authorities denied being involved in the attack and said it wasn’t his dogs.
The idea entities of the hunters associated with these hunting dog attacks have remained unpunished.
French bear attack.
Year Old Man
In France a 70 year old man nearly died after an unexpected encounter with a bear.
According to news sources, the hunter was pursuing wild boars through a mountainous and forested region of Southern France when the bear sprang on him unexpectedly.
The two got into a battle.
The man was left with one of his legs severely injured and the bear was left dead.
The old man somehow managed to get the upper hand, but just barely.
What’s really interesting is that brown bears had actually just about gone extinct in France until 1996..
There was just a handful of them left until the French government reintroduced them to the Pyrenees Mountains.
About 64 Brown Bears
French authorities even began importing bears from Slovenia to try and get their numbers up, and now there are about 64- brown bears living in the area, but this increase has led to a problem with local farmers and, apparently, hunters.
329 Bear Incidents
In 2020 alone, there were 329 bear incidents
That’s quite impressive, considering the low number of bears.
What do you think should be done about the Bears creating havoc in the French Countryside?
Though they want to keep the population up, the attacks and incidents have caused chaos.
So what’s the solution here?
Let me know how you’d solve the problem in the comments below, and don’t forget to subscribe, if you haven’t already.
French manslaughter in the southwest of France, a man fired a gun while hunting, the bullet from that gun went through the forest and hit a car that was driving down the road in the middle of the afternoon.
The driver just so happened to be an off-duty cop.
She heard a loud bang, pulled over onto the side of the road and saw that someone had shot out her brake light.
Shocked, she immediately called for backup.
The cops managed to identify the shooter, a man who had been taking part in a boar hunt, but what the authorities have not managed to put together is whether the full bullet hit the car or if it had been a Ricochet.
Nonetheless, it stirred up quite a bit of controversy in France.
The country has been stunned by a recent string of hunting incidents that could result in some new laws coming into play.
These laws May prevent people from shooting off their guns in the countryside.
In November, just a month before the cop was almost shot while driving, another man died under shockingly similar circumstances.
A 67-year-old man was killed after being shot by a 9.3 millimeter hunting bullet.
Accidentally, as he was driving down the road, the bullet went through his window and struck the man, killing him.
The man who fired the bullet, another senior in his 70s, has since been charged with manslaughter.
Several days after this incident, almost the exact same thing happened.
A couple pulled over on the side of the road after hearing a loud bang, only to find a bullet lodged in the gas tank of their car are.
They were fortunate to have managed to escape without an explosion because a man in his late 70s had been aiming at a deer on the other side of the road, in any case, driving in the countryside seems to be one of the most dangerous things a person can do, in France, at least during hunting season.
Mistaken for a bear, a man by the name of David Green has been killed in a tragic hunting accident.
It happened on December, the 1st 2021..
David hadn’t even been hunting at the time.
The Outdoorsman, a fan of all things dirty and muddy, had been picking Roots along Preston Branch Road in Boone County, West Virginia.
According to the West Virginia Natural Resource police, a man named Jimmy Castle shot and killed David because he reportedly thought he was a bear.
Now, I don’t know if you’ve ever seen a bear in the wild or at the zoo, but I can guarantee you that they do not look anything like a human.
The only thing that may have made David even look remotely like a bear there was the fact that he was wearing a black shirt.
Basically, he was a dark blur in the trees, but Jimmy never stopped to consider the possibility.
He just fired the gun.
He went to look at his kill, but told authorities he never found a body because the terrain was too steep.
In reality, the truth is that Jimmy probably realized he had shot someone and took off before anyone could catch him.
In this case, the accident is going to have consequences.
Jimmy probably didn’t mean to shoot David, but that doesn’t change the fact that he did.
He’s now facing charges of negligent shooting and failure to render Aid.
The hunter was attacked by a zombie coyote.
Sounds wild, but of course there’s more to this bizarre story.
What should have been an ordinary retrieval of a coyote corpse at the end of a hunting trip turned into a terrifying struggle.
Of course the coyote wasn’t actually a zombie, it just clung onto life a little more tenaciously than the Hunter had planned for.
Michigan resident skip Van Buren was hunting in the Bush when he shot a coyote.
In September he went to go pick the coyote up, and that was when it appeared to have returned to life and bit him several times.
It attacked with such ferocity that skip was knocked to the ground.
If it hadn’t been for the bullet already lodged in the coyote, the animal almost certainly would have torn the hunter to shreds.
According to skip himself, the incident caught him totally off guard.
He’s a professional Predator Hunter and even puts on seminars on how to properly hunt the most dangerous game.
He’s killed plenty of coyotes, but this was the first time that one almost killed him.
After he bit his hand, the coyote got back onto its feet and began to Circle skip because he had left his rifle behind to collect the corpse.
He had nothing to defend himself with.
He tried to kick the animal
But it simply bit through his shoe and sank its teeth into his foot.
It also bit his right leg, it chomped down on his butt and it wrestled skip to the ground.
But all that fighting had really tuckered the coyote out because it was already injured.
That was as much damage as it could do.
It got tired, gave up and allowed skip to run back to his rifle and kill the coyote completely this time.
What would you do if the game you’d hunted appeared to come back to life?
Tell me in the comments.
The hunter is hunted.
A hunter became the hunter deep in the woods of Colorado.
The young woman known only as Mackenzie is a native of South Carolina.
She got separated from her father on a hunting trip and she came face to face with the most dangerous predator in the state, alone staring into the face of a hissing mountain lion.
She had no choice but to fight back against the animal, though of course not before the young woman pulled out her phone and began filming.
She caught the entire encounter on video, with the cougar crouched and growling, snarling and basically foaming at the mouth.
Mackenzie tried to scare it away, waving her arms and yelling, but it just wasn’t enough.
Only when she pretended to charge at it did the cat Retreat into the woods, but just a few seconds later it turned around and decided to pounce.
That was when Mackenzie had to ditch her phone, pick up her gun and blast the big cat in self-defense.
This was not a win for anybody.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife later discovered the mountain lion Dead from the woman’s bullet.
In a post on social media, Mackenzie apologized for the death and said that she absolutely did not want to shoot the big cat.
She only did it because at that moment it really seemed like a choice between life or death.
Accidental murder: in the most tragic hunting accident of all, a young girl has been killed by her very own father.
Daisy Grace Lynn George
Her name was Daisy Grace Lynn George, who was 11 years old and in sixth grade.
According to the Harrison County, Texas deputies, Daisy’s father killed her with a high-powered rifle.
When deputies and Ems units got to the scene, the girl was already in very bad shape and, because of bad weather, emergency helicopters couldn’t get the child to the hospital in time.
She was transported to the closest medical center, where she was ultimately pronounced dead.
Unlike most of the accidents we talked about today, the father wasn’t actually trying to shoot anything.
He didn’t mistake his daughter for game.
Instead, he told the police that he was trying to clear the hammer of his hunting rifle.
When the shot went off, he thought the gun was unloaded and his daughter was standing right in front of him.
When the gun discharged, he immediately called 9-1-1, but unfortunately for both he and his family, it wasn’t enough.
It’s safe to say that for the rest of his life this father is going to be plagued by the results of this tragedy.
