Default Zombie Cats Attack!!!

http://news.discovery.com/animals/pets/feral-cats-attack-130727.htm

One more reason to love dogs: A gang of feral cats in France attacked a woman and her poodle, forcing both victims to seek medical attention for their injuries.
The cat-attack occurred Sunday (July 21) near the city of Belfort in eastern France. The 31-year-old woman was walking her dog near a wooded area when six felines set upon her, knocking her to the ground, The Independent reports. The victim was treated for injuries at a nearby hospital where she was also given an injection for rabies.
....
....
Veterinary specialist Valerie Dramard believes the cats were protecting their territory from the poodle, and the woman simply got in the way.
"Cats are not new zombies of the apocalypse," Dramard said reassuringly. "They are just very territorial and unfriendly with unknown species."


Don't believe the Cat Zombie connection, watch this:

2-headed turtle at Texas zoo gets Facebook page
Associated Press
July 28, 2013 11:31 AM EST


SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A two-headed turtle born last month at the San Antonio Zoo has become so popular that she has her own Facebook page.

Zoo officials say the Texas cooter, named Thelma and Louise for the female duo in the 1991 Oscar-winning movie, has been doing well.

Spokeswoman Debbie Rios-Vanskike (van SKYKE') says the turtle eats and swims, and added that the two heads — named Louise Left and Thelma Right — get along.

The Facebook page on Sunday showed photos of the quirky reptile and imaginary conversations between the two heads.

The turtle hatched June 18. The animal is on display at the zoo's Friedrich Aquarium.

The one and only book I have read by Stephen King is titled "Feral" and has an identical plot line. Never cared for the genre though.

Yep. Tried reading King once and it just didn't keep my attention either.

As to the cats though, they can be forgiven. It was a poodle they attacked. And in France no less! No harm done to the dog population losing a French Poodle.

Police: Aliquippa Woman Thwarts Robbery By Running Over Suspect

ALIQUIPPA (KDKA) – Police say a Beaver County woman may have thwarted a robbery, by running over a suspect with her car.
It happened in the 2100 block of McMinn Street in Aliquippa.
Aliquippa police say a witness saw Cameron White walking down a street carrying what appeared to be a sawed off shotgun.
She called police, but noticed that White was heading in the direction of a group of children.
Police say she feared White was going to shoot the children, so she ran over him with her car.
White was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police believe he was actually going to rob the Circle K mini-mart down the road and that she may have prevented the robbery.
They say White was carrying an airsoft pellet gun which had been sawed off to look like a shotgun, and the orange tip had been taken off.
The Beaver County District Attorney says they are not going to charge her with running White over.
Question: is removing the orange tip from a toy gun an actual crime in PA?
This then begs the question: Having not actually commited a crime, is it then reasonable to run him down with a car. They "think" he intended to rob the Circle K. Wow, they "think"?
While I doubt this guy was the picture of innocence, running him down for simply appearing to be up to no good, seems premature. I suspect that this sort of thing would open some doors to a fairly sizable civil suit. I mean maybe he was just walking to friend's house with it to mess with him.

Arkansas Man Wakes Up To Find Dog Ate His Testicle


La Nota Loca
Published August 01, 2013
Fox News Latino




Talk about a rude awakening.

A paralyzed man from Trumann, Ark. woke up Monday morning to find his dog had eaten one of his testicles.

To say the “victim was bitten by his dog causing extensive injury,” as it was described on the police report, doesn’t quite do the situation justice.

The 39-year-old man, who refused to be identified, told police that though he cannot feel anything from the waist down, he woke up due to a “burning sensation” around his mid-section.

According to kait8.com, the man told police he sleeps in the nude, and when he woke up around 7:45 a.m., he found the dog between his legs. He also said that he saw his “small, white, fluffy dog” with blood on its snout and front paws.

According to the police report, after he noticed the blood the man discovered “the dog had eaten one of his testicles.”

The Trumann man told police the dog was a stray that he had taken in three weeks prior, and was unsure of whether the dog was vaccinated or not.

After the incident, the police took the dog to a local veterinarian to be euthanized. The dog’s head was then sent to the Arkansas Department of Health so it could be tested for rabies.

The victim was taken by EMS to St. Bernards Regional Medical Center to recuperate from the “extensive injury.”

I've read just about everything King wrote up until the last 10 years or so. Once he got off the drugs, his work just wasn't as good anymore.
Pet Semetary was the stuff nightmares are made from.
