Fox stuck on iceberg rescued, revived by Canadian crabbers

People | When crab fishermen Mallory Harrigan, Cliff Russell and Alan Russell set out off the coast of Labrador, Canada, early Friday, June 22, it was pretty much a morning like any other. “We were off to a late start,” Harrigan tells PEOPLE, “but there had been an unusual amount of ice that prevented us from getting out.” The Northern Swan’s crew set their gear and powered onward to Pincent’s Arm, a small coastal town of Newfoundland and Labrador, in order to refuel. It was then, approximately 4 miles from land, that they spotted something unusual on a piece of ice. “It was a small artic fox,” recalls Harrigan. She suspects he became stranded on the iceberg while hunting for food. © Mallory Harrigan

Ranking Marvel movies, worst to best

With “Avengers: Infinity War” breaking box office records the world over, Marvel is at the top of the superhero game. The multi-hero blockbuster makes the Marvel Cinematic Universe the highest-grossing franchise of all time, and with another three films slated for 2019 release, they’re not slowing down anytime soon. Although the Marvel Cinematic Universe officially began in 2007 with the release of “Iron Man,” Marvel has been in the movie business since 1986—with the release of the critical flop turned fan-favorite “Howard the Duck.” Putting revenues aside, which heroes have been the most popular with fans? Has the dawn of the MCU given them more to celebrate, or has the glut of superhero movies led to “Avenger fatigue?” Using data from IMDb, Stacker has assembled a ranking of every live-a...
