The Sele is a river in southwestern Italy. Originating from the Monti Picentini in Caposele,[1] it flows through the region of Campania, in the provinces of Salerno and Avellino. Its mouth is in the Gulf of Salerno, on the Tyrrhenian Sea, at the borders between the municipalities of Eboli and Capaccio (not too far from Paestum), in the beginning point of Cilentan Coast. -- From Wikipedia

No Kuvasz, but very cool wildlife rescue

These injured wild animals in North Carolina are brushed free of debris with mascara wands.
"Burgin recalls a particularly aggravated white squirrel that bit the person who first picked her up. The squirrel was covered in fly larvae and needed attention, and Burgin had to use a towel when holding her down to avoid being bitten herself. But once she started combing the squirrel with a mascara wand, the animal relaxed to the point where all Burgin had to do was lift her little paws out of the way to groom her."
