Time for a pulp countdown now, and as it's #WorldAnimalDay I'm counting down my top 10 animals in horror novels! #FridayFeeling
At no 10: cats! Pretty evil in general, but can be easily defeated with a laser pointer.
At no 9: wasps! They only attack you if you're standing near a jam sandwich, but who doesn't nowadays? Best to take care.

Today on #WorldAnimalDay, we’re celebrating a pretty remarkable dog, @hurricane_k9.
@hurricane_k9 A Belgian Malinois, Hurricane stopped an intruder from entering the @Whitehouse back in 2014. Today he was accompanied by his handler, Officer Marshall Mirarchi, as he was awarded the @PDSA_HQ Order of Merit for his actions.
@hurricane_k9 @WhiteHouse @PDSA_HQ Hurricane is the first international animal to receive the honor, the animal equivalent of the OBE. Congratulations @hurricane_k9, your power and tenacity knows no bounds!

Hi. Can we talk about a heroic pigeon who did something cool 100 years ago today? Close up photo of a taxidermy pigeon. It has a red, glass eye. Pointy beak. Feathers at the neck are emerald with some pink. Overall brown and grey.
World War I, October 1918. Forest of Argonne in France. Under heavy fire, cut off by the enemy, and desperate for rescue, the men of what became known as the #LostBattalion have only two homing pigeons left.
By October 3, 1918, German forces surround them. For days, they dig in and fight off repeated enemy attacks. #LostBattalion

So why not come with us on a St Paul's Safari to mark #WorldAnimalDay.
Let’s start close to home with the humble bumble. Where would we bee without these little guys’ hard work?
Geese are a pretty common sight on UK shores, although these ones might want to watch their backs from a scary looking predator!!
