These apparently ill-tempered creatures are not known to willingly or peacefully return phones once they have managed to obtain them. In fact, any attempt to retrieve the desired object is not looked upon favourably, at all. One might do well to consider one’s erstwhile mobile device a lost cause, really, rather than face the frightful wrath of these fearsome, aggressive amphibians.
ECS—or Escaped Cow Syndrome—and the ennui-inducing NW (Now What-ism) associated with it—is something we all face; it is by no means limited to bovines/ungulates. But take heart, I say, from these proud, purposeful individuals. Nothing less than a clarion call has been sounded: We need not fear freedom; we must embrace it!

A remote island in The Bahamas is home to these mighty aquatic feral pigs.
“The clever pigs have also worked out that the crews of passing yachts regularly dump excess food into the sea. Today the beach is a popular tourist attraction and whether or not they remember to bring their swimming gear, the tourist will always bring food. The hungry pigs eagerly plunge into the waves when they see a yacht and will swim a few hundred feet up to the vessel in the hope of a free meal.” (per Amusing Planet)
My buddy Daniel with his much beloved companion, King. This individual, this Truly Great King, a canine of untold powers, was recently re-united, and very justly/happily so, with the gentleman pictured, who happens to be another remarkable living being. But we here speak of Dog-dom; King is, quite simply, not your regular-type dime-a-dozen-er; an awe-inducer of the highest echelons, he leaves countless slackened jaws in his wake.
King rightly ascends to the very Summit of Things, with his faithful, dogged confrère Dan with him all the way.
