For people with severe alcohol and drugs addiction, a stint of goat husbandry might sound like an odd prescription. But that's one approach being tried out by a specialist recovery centre near Maidstone.
The Kenward Trust, which helps addicts to clean up their lives and get back on track, has formed a partnership with the Buttercups Goat Sanctuary. It's hoped that caring for the animals every day will help to bring structure and a sense of responsibility to the Trust's residents.
David Johns explains, talking to Ken Crawford from the Kenward Trust, volunteer Valerie Underdown, and Bob Hitch, founder of Buttercups Goat Sanctuary.
Two new baby beavers have been born at Drusillas Park in East Sussex.
The two kits were born on Wednesday 5th June 2013. Their father Gnasher has become a parent for the first time. Their mother is called Gnawer.
The park is the only zoo in the Uk to house North American beavers.
The site's Head Keeper, Mark Kenward said: “It’s always difficult to know how an animal will cope with becoming a parent for the first time but in Gnasher’s case there really was no need to worry...
"From the moment the kits were born he has protected and cared for them and even cut the umbilical cord with his teeth. He has proven himself to be a fantastic dad and deserves to be thoroughly spoilt this Fathers Day.”
An orphaned baby wallaby is settling in at the New Forest Wildlife Park after her mother died. Skye is four months old and sleeps in a makeshift pouch lined with her mother's fur. She is fed milk, but also eats dandelions, cucumber and bananas.
Skye needs to be fed every four hours and goes home each night with her keeper Donna Liversedge. Donna said: "She's adorable. She sticks her head out from the pouch and watches the world go by. Sometimes she gets out and hops around my bedroom.
"She seems very happy bouncing around and unfazed by her loss. She's an absolute celebrity with my housemates - they love her. When the weather is warmer and she is older she will be able to socialise with the other wallabies, but for the time being she's happy in her pouch."
Sussex Police say a dog owner has agreed to pay £600 to a farmer, after his pet chased sheep leading four of the animals to die. The sheep worrying happened in January on Telscombe Tye, Telscome Cliffs.

Sheep worrying is a criminal offence and the public are urged to keep dogs under full control, ideally on leads, especially in areas where livestock are present, to prevent incidents like this occurring. "In this case, the offender agreed to pay the farmer £600 for the loss of his sheep as part of an agreed community resolution."
The number of dogs that have been killed by a toxin picked up in the Ogdens area of the New Forest in Hampshire has risen to eleven.
Environmental and veterinary investigations are continuing into the cause. It is thought that the mystery poison may have got into the dogs' blood streams through cuts on their paws.
There have been a number of dog attacks on sheep in the South Downs National Park. Farmers and the police are raising awareness of the issue and asking owners to keep their dogs on leashes.
