Feel good headline of the day:

Ginger the dog doesn’t have a bad life at the Paris, Maine, animal shelter where she’s lived for almost four years. She’s beloved by staff and volunteers, and she spends a good amount of time outside the shelter ― including long walks through the woods and trips to McDonald’s, where she enjoys a plain cheeseburger. But after more than 1,450 days, Ginger needs a home of her own. Ginger is outgoing, loving and enjoys snuggling, Ingersoll said. But she also has some issues with resource guarding ― meaning she can become defensive and possessive of objects like her food bowl and toys.

Sun May 22, 2016

Two lions were killed after a man jumped into the lion enclosure at the Santiago Metropolitan Zoo in Chile, local police said Sunday.

The incident has provoked outrage on social media, while the zoo is defending its actions. TODAY’s Tamron Hall reports.
