Dressed in their Sunday best, these critters waited patiently to see the priest. It was a zoo at the annual "Blessing of the Animals" mass in Lima... an event that honors St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. And at the same time, pays homage to our furry friends. A blessing of a different sort in Poland - this paralyzed hedgehog receives a soothing massage… from the owner of a shelter and rehab center that caters exclusively to these little guys. He's a retired teacher who now cares for 22 of the spiny mammals. But only until they're healthy enough to survive in the wild and share the hedge… an unlikely story for a hedgehog. Bentley is getting a lot of attention these days. He belongs to a Texas nurse who contracted Ebola. And after being removed from his home, he's being cared for in quarantine. Teams are monitoring his health for signs of the virus. So far, so good. These two California black bears took the road less traveled and ended up poolside in Pasadena. This, after the baby got trapped in a garbage bin… rescued by the mother bear with the help of a policeman's ladder. After their adventures, they're definitely deserving of some R&R. ...Just the opposite of these active orcas, on the move near Vashon Island in Washington State. Diving into pumpkins, these prairie dogs are searching for a trick or treat - and they found it at Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo's Pumpkin Bash. Who says Halloween is only meant for children?
