A year ago a racehorse trainer feared she would lose one of her horses after he suffered a life-threatening injury during a race at Wincanton.
But the horse, called Monkerty Tunkerty, has battled back to health and winning ways, triumphing in the Somerset National last month.
A hotel cat from Cornwall - who is so popular he's been written about on Trip Advisor - has been found dead after fears he was kidnapped.
Jerry, the 13-year-old blue Burman, was believed to be taken from Hotel Penzance last week. CCTV showed a man talking to the pet before apparently making off with him.
But his body was found on a Penzance beach on Wednesday February 18, just days after police joined the hunt for the moggy.
It is with great regret that we would like to inform everybody that we have found Jerry's body today. A very kind member of the public who was out walking her dog on long rock beach called to inform us. Jerry was found very close to where the Tesco river comes out on the beach. We would like to thank everybody again for all their help and kind comments during the past week.
Dartmouth-based fishing charter firm, Outlaw got more than it bargained for last weekend when it took some regulars on a trip on the Mid-Channel Wrecks in search of winter pollock.
Tim Smith from Dawlish hooked a fish but had to fight off a seal for his prize. The boat's owner describes what happened.
Tim had just retrieved the fish to mid-water when suddenly his rod dipped viciously right over the rail, he now appeared to have a real battle on his hands, slowly he gained on the fish until his pollock broke the surface some distance from the boat.
It was clear he had caught a pollock, but trailing right behind his catch was a beady pair of eyes and whiskers – a seal had decided to attack his fish on the way up and hung on to it right on to the bitter end.
Thankfully, only the fish was hooked and as he reeled in his pollock towards Outlaw, the seal stubbornly let go and disappeared back to the deep.
The same thing happened to two more anglers - and so, when the seal surfaced again, the skipper handed him a pollock, which he took and disappeared for the rest of the day, leaving the fishermen to fish in peace.

An orphaned newborn badger cub gobbled up by a terrier has been rescued by a Somerset wildlife centre. The Jack Russell's owner could not believe the tiny pink bundle that was dropped on her kitchen floor, and quickly contacted her local Badger Group, who called Secret World Wildlife Rescue.
Little Star, who weighs just 80 grams, is now being looked after at the Somerset centre. She is being fed every two hours and, despite being in an incubator, needs an extra hot water bottle without warmth from her mum.
Badger cubs would not usually venture above ground until they are at least ten to twelve weeks old, so this tiny badger is very lucky to survive.
Secret World Wildlife Rescue cares for over 5,000 injured and orphaned animals every year. Little Star is its first orphan of the year.
The centre is holding a badger-themed open weekend over Easter. The 'Badger Bonanza' will be allow visitors to find out more about badgers and the work done by the charity.
A family of beavers that made their home along the River Otter in Devon are being allowed to stay - for the next five years at least.
As many as ten of the animals have set up home along the river. They haven't lived freely in our countryside for centuries but Natural England says they can remain while conservationists study their impact on the environment.
Devon Wildlife Trust comes with eyes open to this project. We know what it means because we have studied these animals for three years. I'm sitting on a tree that has been felled by these animals so they can bring change to our landscape, but that doesn't mean destruction. That means opportunities for other kinds of wildlife.
A decision is due on the fate of wild beavers living on the River Otter in Devon.
Conservationists think at least three now live near Ottery St Mary. Devon Wildlife Trust hopes to spend five years studying the impact of the beavers on the local environment. It has launched an appeal to fund the project.
