Animals In The News

Here's a first, a female born with two heads and only one brain. Last Friday a live two headed calf was born in Rivera, Columbia. This birth defect is called polycephaly. Due to the weight of the combined heads the calf can't stand on her own. The farmer, Marino Cabrera, has rigged a hammock to help the animal. Rosario Leyva, the caretaker's wife, thinks the calf is beautiful but you judge for yourself.

On an Egypt Air flight from Abu Dhabi to Cairo a foot long baby crocodile escaped from someone carry on luggage and was loose on the plane. The passengers were quite upset till a member of the flight crew managed to capture the reptile. It is illegal to transport exotic animals in Egypt, so of course no one admitted ownership of the croc. It was taken to the Cairo Zoo.

What happens in Vegas is supposed to stay in Vegas, but this is a bit much. A Tiger excaped from Fernando's Brothers Magic Act and was loose in Las Vegas. The Police recieved calls about tiger sightings but when they arrived the owners had recaptured the animal. Of Course they reassured authorities that the tiger was a tame one. But then just ask Sigfreid and Roy about tame tigers.

Swallowing 11 swords

Some people just have more interesting lives than others. I get the impression from the video there are trophies for sword swallowing, and it would be great to watch the competition.

The last few seconds of the clip he swallows fire.

Are You More Honest Than A 5th Grader?

In China they were having problems with cheating on police exams. The officials proctoring the tests were letting the cheating go on in many cases so as to save the officers being tested embarrassment. The Liangzhou Discipline Inspection Commission and Organization Department decided to try an experiment in hopes of reducing incidences of cheating on the exams. They brought in 18 5th graders to keep the adult police officers honest. Hopes were that in addition to the children being observant and not inclined to let things slide, the adults would feel obligated to set a better example in front of them. The children took their job seriously and caught 25 cheaters out of over 200 being tested. The scores of those 25 were disqualified. 'and let the children lead them'

Save The Horse Put Down The Human

A serial rapist faces the possibility of just 5 years in prison if convicted. The reason being that the 21 year old female he has raped multiple times is a horse. In 2007 Barbara Kenley noticed her horse Sugar was agitated and things were moved around in the barn. She set up a camera and found out that a man was entering the barn and having sex with poor Sugar. Barbara waited for him, caught and held him with a shotgun till police arrived. Rodell Vereen, 50, was charged with trespass and buggery. He received probation and was required register as a sex offender. Just a few weeks ago Barbara noticed Sugar was acting strangely again and things were out of place in the barn again. The police seemed uninterested in her complaint so back up went the camera. Once again Rodell was caught molesting Sugar so once again Barbara waited for him and held him at gunpoint for police to ensure he would be arrested. Now Rodell is facing charges of trespass and buggery. Rodell's brother, Reverend James Vereen, says his brother is mentally ill and may not be taking his medicine. Everyone Barbara knows that have horses told her she should have shot Vereen.
