Jennifer Beals
Jennifer Beals has come under fire from animal activists for allegedly leaving her dog in a hot car on Wednesday.

The Flashdance star was caught on video in West Vancouver, Canada, where she told a concerned passerby that everything was "fine," thanking him for his concern. The passerby then informed her that he was calling the authorities.

A rep for British Columbia's SPCA said that the day's temperature, which peaked at around 77 degrees Fahrenheit, was not "fine" enough to leave an animal unattended in a vehicle with the windows cracked only a few inches.

"In this temperature, I don't...

Nightmarish Dog Attack: Husband's Pit Bull Severs Wife's Arm Aft
One witness described the weekend dog attack in South Carolina like something out of a horror movie.

While a woman recovers in an Intensive Care Unit, residents and the dog's owner are trying to make sense out of Sunday's horrific mauling. What's particularly puzzling is why an American pit bull terrier attacked a man's wife and severed part of her arm on Sunday.

Mahmoud Rizk, 30, the owner of a pit bull named "Tiger," said his wife, Katherine Rizk is in bad shape after being bitten many times and dragged around like a ragdoll, citing a report from the Post and Courier.

Margot Robbie Elle
Margot Robbie has a pet rat. But it's not just any old rat. It was a gift from her "Suicide Squad" co-star Jared Leto, who plays the Joker. Robbie plays Harley Quinn.

The actress talks about her pet, named Rat Rat, in the new issue of Elle magazine. She admits the name isn't very original, but she decided to keep the rodent even after some of the crew suggested "killing it."

"If Harley got something from Joker, she'd probably cherish it," the star reasons.

Rat Rat appears to be having a good life. His diet consists of organic berries from Whole Foods.

Guide Dog Saves Owner: Hero Dog Jumps In Front Of Bus To Protect
A golden retriever named Figo was crossing the street with his owner, Audrey Stone, when a mini-bus zoomed towards the pair, clearly not intent on stopping. What did Figo do? He pushed himself into the path of the bus, taking the hit and protecting his owner from the impact.

Incredible, isn't it? Figo, a service animal, was struck primarly on his right front leg, which was severely injured (according to The Journal News, Figo's leg is in a splint, and he's "on the mend and doing extremely well"). Stone, 62, also didn't come out of the accident unscathed. She ended up with a fractured right...

'Big Bang Theory' Star Kaley Cuoco And Her Dogs Deny Nose Job Ru
Did anyone really think Kaley Cuoco had a particularly large schnoz? Hollywood has its share of oversized honkers, we wouldn't consider Cuoco's one of them.

And yet, after receiving sinus surgery a few days ago, Cuoco's been plagued with rumors that her sinuses weren't what was under the knife- that this "sinus surgery" was really a nose job.

Cuoco is apparently fed up with people talking about her nose, and she's taken to Instagram to put an end to it.

The "Big Bang Theory" star posted a collage of photos of her (nose bandage and all) and her many dogs, along with a caption that will h...
