Wherever Peña goes, Bentley goes too.

Someone please put Bentley in a magazine as a model.

As the great father that he is, Peña is always spoiling his baby boy Bentley with gifts.

Bentley is wearing two pairs of Yeezys and I can’t even afford a Yeezy shoelace.

And as you can tell by this picture, Bentley likes to show off how spoiled he is.

Bentley the baller. ????

Since Bentley is an only child, he enjoys having the company of other animal friends.

This is sooooo cute. ????

However, Bentley isn’t the only animal in Peña’s circle of friends. Peña also shows lots of love towards pigeons.

I’ve never seen such photogenic pigeons.

When he’s not hanging out with the pigeons, Peña is out kicking it with his monkey friends.

LOL. The look on their faces is identical.

Time and time again, Peña even treats some of his animal friends to NBA tickets.

In addition to furry baby pigs, Peña also likes to spend time with tall, slender giraffes.

Okay now I’m jealous. Wish I had as many animal friends as he does.

One of the reasons why these animals are so attracted to Peña is because he always has delicious treats to offer.

P.S. Peña has an entire squad of deer friends. This is just one from the pack.

What’s great about all of Peña’s furry friends is that they’re never shy to pose for a picture.

Meanwhile, it takes me about 25 tries to get a decent picture with my pet dog.

Once in a blue moon, you’ll catch Peña hanging out with an actual human being. But of course, his animal friends have to be there too.

If this ain’t squad goals, I don’t know what is.

In addition to taking naps with Bentley, Peña also enjoys taking naps with his snake pals.

In need of a body pillow to cuddle up with? Just get yourself a snake like Peña!

Overall, Peña gets along quite well with all types of reptiles.

He’s carrying that reptile the way you carry a baby. So cute.

What most don’t know, is that Peña’s love for animals began at a young age.

Awwww. Little baby Peña. ????

And till this day, he still has that same level of love for all of earth’s creatures.

Mexican Couple Hailed As Heroes For Saving 10 Dogs From Flooding Caused By Hurricane Hanna

Hurricane Hanna slammed into Texas and Mexico on July 26 as a Category 1 hurricane. Yet, the most resilient story to come from Mexico is that of a couple who rescued some sweet puppies. Their ingenuity is something that will make every Mexican proud.

This is one of the most touching moments from Hurrican Hanna.

Mis papás perdieron todo… pero lograron sacar sus bebés 😭

Posted by Betty Vaquera Escandón on Sunday, July 26, 2020

That’s right. Those sweet puppies owe it all to the loving couple who took them into their bucket and rescued them. We have seen so many heartbreaking images over the years of animals abandoned to die when places flood during hurricanes.

The videos, posted by the couple’s daughter, is being accepted with so much love and excitement.

This is a fact. These people are some of the most compassionate people by saving these puppies. Who wouldn’t want to take the time to make sure that their furbabies are okay?

She posted a follow up live video when the flooding subsided to show just how damaging it was.

Posted by Betty Vaquera Escandón on Monday, July 27, 2020

The storm dropped 18 inches of rain on southern Texas and northern Mexico. The video shows damage throughout the couple’s home and the daughter was there to document it all for them. It is clear from the level of the water that there was nothing else that could have bee done to protect these little puppies.

They did another follow up just to thank everyone.

Posted by Betty Vaquera Escandón on Tuesday, July 28, 2020

Just like any good Latino couple, they thanked everyone who has reached out to them. It is truly such a sweet and wonderful story. We will forever keep this couple in our hearts because of everything they did.

Tbh, it would be so hard not to protect these angels.

Mi antidepresivo 🐶🐶🥰💕 #Elmilaneso

We can only hope to be as selfless and important as this couple.

Videos Show That Bears In This Mexican Park Are Getting Way Too Close For Comfort

Videos Show That Bears In This Mexican Park Are Getting Way Too Close For Comfort

@lzaroRos5 / Twitter

Imagine you’re out taking a stroll in nature, trying to get some fresh air amid all of this chaos. You feel something brush your back and you turn to look behind you and there’s a massive bear.

Well that’s exactly what’s happened on at least two occasions (both of which have been caught on video) in a park outside of Monterrey, Mexico. Groups of hikers are coming into increased contact with Black Bears as they enter more populated areas to search for food and water.

Although the videos look amazing and have quickly gone viral, this bear is getting way too close for comfort.

It all started when a video went viral showing a Black Bear standing up and smelling a woman’s hair.

A series of videos have gone viral on Mexican Twitter as they show a Black Bear getting way too close for comfort to hikers outside Monterrey. The first video showed a group of women hiking the trails of Monterrey’s Chipinque Ecological Park when they got some unwanted attention from a highly curious Black Bear.

The medium-sized bear, captured on a 59-second video, can be seen sniffing the women’s legs and torsos and in one case, getting up on its hind legs and placing its front paws on a woman’s shoulders as it sniffs her hair.

The women in the video appear to do a good job at following the advice from experts to protect themselves from any aggressive behavior. They remained calm and still and waited until the bear left to begin to move. However, the video does also show one of the women attempting to take a selfie as the bear sniffs her hair – not sure how she remained so calm?!

It turns out, the bear has approached another hiker in the same area.

Then, just a few days later, the same bear (identified by a marker on its ear) had another close encounter with another woman at the same park – where such interactions with humans are occurring on an increasingly frequent basis. 

In a video clip of Tuesday’s incident, a woman is approached by the medium-sized bear who sniffs her and lightly paws at her while her husband films the scene, urging her to stay calm. “What should I do?” the woman asks the man, who replies, “Don’t move, stay there.” 

The man remarks that the bear appears very playful, but the tension in his voice escalates as the bear grabs the woman’s leg with its paw. “Bear, bear, come here,” the man says before the clip ends.

Park officials are concerned and say this isn’t natural behavior.

Bears are typically terrified of people. Attacks are very rare. So this type of approach by the Black Bear is considered abnormal behavior caused by human beings. Park representatives said in a statement that “the interaction shown in the video should have been avoided; what is recommended is to move away when detecting the presence of the bear and not approach.”

The bear in question has already been captured twice and released at the request of neighbors, the park said, but as the animal appears to have lost all fear of humans, it will need to be recaptured and sent either to a zoo or an area less populated by people. 

Gustavo Treviño, general director of Parks and Wildlife in Nuevo León, told the newspaper Milenio that 26 bear sightings have been reported in the municipalities of San Pedro, Santa Catarina and Monterrey. He urged citizens to avoid all contact with them and not to feed them or take photos.

Bear sightings are quite common in this part of Mexico. The two incidents took place in Chipinque Park, which is part of the larger Cumbres de Monterrey National Park in the eastern Sierra Madre mountains.

According to experts, this type of sighting is not unusual in the park during certain times of the year, when bears come down from the mountains in search of food and water. The bears even appear in residential areas.

Black bears are considered to be an endangered species in Mexico, due to the destruction of their habitat and illegal hunting. However, its only protected population is in Sierra del Burro, part of the eastern Sierra Madre mountain range which lies in the state of Coahuila.
