This little lamb looks like she loves a game of hide and seek (even though she needs lots of clues from 'Bea' :P)

Haha! She finally found Bea. Never give up little lamby :)

Did you know that sheep are known for their playfulness? They can also learn and respond to their name, just like dogs. Click here to find out everything you never knew about sheep.

Have you seen another cute lamb video? Share it with me in the comments :)

11 Aussies who won't be eating lamb this Aus Day

11 Aussies who won't be eating lamb this Aus Day

What do Peter Siddle and Portia de Rossi have in common?

  1. They're Australian.
  2. They won't be eating lamb on Australia Day.

And they're not the only ones. Check out these 11 Aussies who reckon eating meat has no place on Aus Day. (Or any other day).

1. Peter Siddle

SIDDLE.jpg

"[M]y girlfriend told me about factory farming, and how brutal it was to animals ... so that's when I decided to become vegetarian" says Aussie cricketer Peter Siddle. There'll be no lamb (or any other animal) on his plate this Australia Day.

2. Abbie Cornish

abbie-cornish.jpg

Actress Abbie Cornish first heard the word 'vegetarian' when she was 13. And on the same day she decided she wanted to be one :)

3. Osher Gunsberg

'Bachie' host and his famous hair have been vegan for over a decade. Got a date with some Moroccan veggie skewers on Jan 26 Osh?

4. Chris Lilley

Imagine a 5 year old Chris Lilley. Then imagine 5 year old Chris Lilley telling his mum that he wouldn't eat animals ever again.

That happened.

5. Sia

Aussie singer/songwriter Sia announced that she was now vegan in a tweet last year. YUS! Sia at my place for some cocunut/mango icy poles this Aus Day?

6. Ash Grunwald

Blues musician and long-time vego Ash Grunwald will no doubt be nomming on some meat-free goodness on January 26th. Maybe some sesame tofu sticks ... or some BBQ seitan ribs ... mmmmm

7. Dave 'Rasta' Rastovich

Surfer dude Rasta was once saved by a dolphin! He now does all he can to return the favour by campaigning to protect marine life. He also does his bit for all animals by not eating them :)

8. Portia de Rossi

Portia hasn't eaten animals in over 6 years. "I feel happier, like I'm contributing to making the world a less violent place." She and Ellen are both vegan. (Because couples who eat legumes together, stay together.*)

*Based on no evidence.

9. Harley Bonner & 10. Ariel Kaplan

neighbours.jpg

Everybody needs good neighbours. And neighbours who leave animals off their plates are the best kind IMHO :) These two, who play Josh and Imogen on Neighbours, are more likely to be cuddling a lamb than eating one on Australia Day.

11. Me

Australia Day (like every day) will be meat-free at my place. Maybe my housemates and I will have burritos again. They were yum.

---

I know what you're thinking ... 'I want to be cool like these people this Australia Day.'

Good news. It's easy as. Just don't eat baby animals (or any animals) on January 26th. Or if you want to be super cool everyday, make the pledge to go veg for life.

Click here to make the pledge ... and then come back here to watch Winter the lamb do a happy dance. Because you deserve it.

Happy Australia Day!

P.S. Here's some awesome cruelty-free Aus Day recipes.

P.P.S. I know you want to put this on your facebook/insta/whatever:

P.P.P.S. THIS. Ok I'm really going now bye.

Everyone deserves a day off!

If you haven't seen the new 'Generation Lamb' Australia Day ad yet, I recommend you give it a miss. Personally, I've had about enough of hearing that I'm un-Australian because I choose not to eat animals. Here's the thing - I know what the sting of a blue bottle feels like, I get sunburnt after 20 minutes in the shade and I know all the best ways to stay safe from drop-bears. In short, I reckon I'm just about as ocker as they come. And I'll be celebrating my Australia Day with 100% meat-free deliciousness.

Here's why:

This year you can take a stand for our furry mates by keeping them off your plate. Because if there's one thing that Aussies can't get enough of, it's a day off. And everyone deserves one. Celebrate all that's good about Australia and knock back some veggie tucker this Oz Day. (Click here for some cruelty-free Aussie classics.)

P.S. If there's one more thing that Aussies just can't get enough of ... it's sticking it to the Kiwis. (The fruit, that is wink.) Click on the graphic below to take part in our Facebook campaign to help save our little Aussie mates.

Everyone Deserves A Day Off!

Two things bring us together as Australians - we're all mates and we all love a day off. This Australia Day, YOU can join the campaign to give our animal mates a day off too - a day off the menu! It'd be un-Australian not to...

Shane Warne, the cast of Home and Away, and a Bondi lifeguard. What do they all have in common? They're all Australian and they all love a day off. Every year across this great nation, Australians unite on January 26th to celebrate our shared love of having a day off. (Umm ... that's right, isn't it?) This year you can make a stand for our four legged mates, by keeping them off your plate. On Australia Day ... Everyone Deserves a Day Off.

However you choose to celebrate your day off, fight un-Australianism, and bring a plate of delicious veggie tucker. Going to a barbie? Cook up some true-blue veggie snags. Picnic? What could be more Australian then taking some lamingtons! Beach party? Wrap yourself in an Aussie flag and take some veggie wraps. The options are as wide as this dry, brown land we call home. You could even host a barbie yourself, encouraging friends to bring a cruelty-free plate.

There's heaps of other ways you can get involved but the best way to celebrate all that's good about Australia is to keep meat off the menu.

Being Australian means more than just ending all your words with the letter "O". So this Australia Day, stand up for the underdog (undersheep?), because Everyone Deserves a Day Off!!

If you're over the idea that being Australian means eating animals, then share this campaign far and wide! You know it makes sense. ;)

Lives risked and life saved in rescue!

Lives risked and life saved in rescue!

Proving that real men are kind to animals, Norwegian mates Erik and Torvald put their own lives at risk to rescue a lamb that was close to drowning. Check out these amazing pics of the rescue!

Erik (20) and Torvald (19) were out and about with a mate taking photos with a new camera when Erik saw the lamb struggling in the waves. Immediately the guys leapt into action and ... well, the photos tell the story. The lamb was reunited with his flock, while Erik and Torvald probably spent the rest of the day rescuing babies from burning buildings and stopping supervillains from taking over the world.

If you reckon this kind of story is inspiring (it gave me goosebumps!) then bear in mind that your decisions every day can have the same impact on an animal's life as these two guys have. Decisions like going meat-free, pledging to not wear leather, or encouraging your oldies to not buy cage eggs (or better yet, try egg replacers!) all make a world of difference to the lives of countless animals.

By making compassionate decisions, you can be a hero for animals, too.

What are some other ways you can think of that Unleashed members can do to help animals?
