Google Maps Street View cameras left some viewers stunned as they honed in on a particularly shocking encounter. The team was Down Under at East Port Veterinary Hospital, in Australia’s Port Macquarie, when they captured a live operation. Not for the faint hearted, the pictures showed staff in their scrubs helping an animal – a dog – in pain. It is unclear what particular pet was in danger, and what the particular ailment was.

Yet the head vet surrounded its body on the operating table alongside some assistants.

He was seen with metal instruments in his hand, inserting them into a huge wound on the animal’s body.

The camera captured the images in enough detail to show a little bit of blood and gore, leaving some stunned.

Bloodied tissues could also be spotted on the table alongside.

It remains to be seen whether the operation was a successes, but it is hoped it was.

Meanwhile, in a separate incident, a completely different animal was causing controversy.

No ordinary cute pink piglet, this particular fun-loving mammal was in fact a man dressed up in a full head mask with beady eyes and a neon snout.

Its appearance was rather realistic, with two ears poking out from the top of his head and a leering look.

The cheeky chap had chosen the perfect place to play dress up, standing in front of a variety of meat-themed cushions in his shop in Warsaw, Poland.

Initially, the scenes appeared just like those in a butchers shop, with prime cuts of best pork behind the counter and on the walls.

On closer inspection, they proved to be the homeware accessories, with the store also selling a variety of quirky products.

T-shirts and logo bags lined the walls while the floor featured an eye popping monochrome design.

Not content with his pig posing behind the counter, he then moved to the shop door.

He could be seen clutching the door as he peered the mask around the frame.

It was then his grey hoodie, jeans and trainers came into full view, revealed he had not fully committed to dressing like the animal.

Little Bruges, the perfect pocket-sized medieval city, was a Sleeping Beauty. Laced with canals, it was one of the great North European trading ports in late medieval times. The magnificently detailed paintings of its artists, such as Jan van Eyck and Hans Memling, record its wealth in clothing, jewellery and ornament. Then it fell rapidly into decline and slept until rediscovered and restored to glory in the 19th century.

Today its new riches are in tourism, carefully managed and constantly refreshed by year-round cultural events, so that it retains the dynamism of a living city. The best way to appreciate all this is to stay a few days, luxuriating in the dreamily romantic boutique hotels, and visiting the rewarding museums and churches at your leisure. Above all, this is a place to walk and wonder, and there are still plenty of quiet corners to discover, where historic Bruges sleeps on.

And what better way to experience them in Europe than by bunking down in cosy cabins, surrounded by miles of forest, still water or the peaks of mountains. They might be pared-back but still boast polished elements, whether it’s a heated hot tub in Sweden, an ‘igloo’ extension in Norway or a glass roof above your bed in Finland. Nothing distracts as the Aurora Borealis flames across the sky – curl up under a blanket and take a look inside. . .

According to an oft-quoted survey conducted by the University of Iceland, nearly 10 per cent of citizens actually believe elves to be real, while more than 80 per cent are on the fence but refuse to deny their existence.
