Dog Killed In Standoff

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A dog was shot and killed as police moved in to end a 3-hour and 40-minute standoff Saturday afternoon at a residence at 4000 Victory Avenue.

  The incident, which police said began at about 11:30 a.m., concluded at about 3:10 p.m. when the male resident of the home was seen being taken into custody. No humans were injured. The man, whom police had not identified as of 6 p.m. Saturday, was in custody at the Racine County Jail, said police Sgt. Sam Stulo.

  The incident started over a confrontation about leaf blowing and dog excrement, said Kim Polk, 49, who lives diagonally from the man in the 1600 block of Russet Street. Polk said she was using a leaf blower to pick up leaves and move them when her neighbor made a comment about her clearing leaves at his house when she was done. Polk said she did not see humor in the statement.

“ I’m neighborly, but there are some neighbors you just don’t mess with and that’s one neighbor we don’t fool with,” Polk said, noting the man’s many alleged run-ins with police in the past.”

Hawk Attacks Drone!

 

 

 

Published on Oct 8, 2014

” On Oct 8th, I was flying my quadcopter at Magazine Beach Park in Cambridge, when a hawk decided he wasn’t too happy with my invasion of his airspace…

  As far as I could tell, the juvenile red-tailed hawk came out unscathed, and having defeated his prey, was happy to retreat. (As soon as he flew at me, I throttled down the props to try to minimize any harm to the bird.) The quadcopter came out unscathed as well.

Great White Shark Attacks Kayakers Off Mass. Coast

 

 

 

 

” A great white shark attacked two kayakers who were trying to photograph seals off the Plymouth, Massachusetts, coast Wednesday evening at Manomet Point, authorities say.

  The shark came up from beneath the two women and took a bite out of one of their kayaks, according to the Plymouth Harbormaster.

  Neither of the women kayaking was injured in the attack. Officials say the women, who are in their mid-20s, were trying to take pictures of the seals at the time.”

Don’t Abandon Our Dogs Of War

 

 

 

 

” We’ve all heard the expression: “A man’s best friend is his equipment.”

  You haven’t? Well you must not work for the Pentagon. There, military dogs are considered mere “equipment” and as such can be left behind when the troops come home.

  It’s a bit more complicated than that. Military dogs are enlisted (drafted actually) to identify enemy locations, to seek out bombs, and protect bases. It is dangerous, often traumatic work. The dogs are credited with saving countless U.S. and allied lives, which is why the Taliban actively targets our dogs of war. While on active service, each dog is given a higher rank than its handler.

  That is, right up until the moment these dogs are “retired.” Once they are too old, too shell-shocked or simply not needed, the dogs are automatically declared equipment that can be left behind like a latrine tent. The military sometimes says they are “retired” and become “civilians,” but the result is the same because these civilians don’t have a right to military transport home. ”

Fisherman Transports Massive Whale Shark On Truck In China

 

All in a day's work: Cai Chengzhu was fishing in Xianghzhi, eastern China, when he found this 16ft-long whale shark - before lugging it onto his tractor and driving it for half-an-hour to a market in nearby Shishi

 

 

 

” Dwindling in numbers, whale sharks are protected in China – and black market salesmen are punished with hefty fines. But when fisherman Cai Chengzhu, 48, spotted this 16-foot-long, two-tonne beast, he could not resist having a go. He heaved it to shore and dragged it to the street.Then, incredibly, he dumped it onto a truck – and drove it for half-an-hour to the nearest market.

Regulation states the valuable whale sharks, which can live for up to 100 years, should be set free immediately if caught. But Cai, from Xianghzhi, in the far-eastern province of Fujian, admitted he planned to sell the creature from 10,000 to 20,000 yuan (around £1,000 to £2,000). “

Owners Raise Questions Over Alleged Police Shooting Of Dog

 

 

Apollo the dog shot by police (Facebook)

 

 

 

” A family dog was allegedly shot and killed in front of a 6-year-old girl by a police officer in southwest suburban Hometown Friday afternoon.

  The dog’s owners said their one-year-old German Shepherd mix, named Apollo, had run out the front door of their house on the 8700 block of Beck Place around 2:20 p.m. and had returned to the front lawn when police arrived.

” I walked over and I tried to call him inside. The police officer had his gun out already,” said Nicole Echlin, one of the dog’s owners. Her 6-year-old daughter walked with her.

” He started showing his teeth — that’s when the officer shot him,” said Echlin, 27. “I didn’t know that was going to happen.”

  Echlin then grabbed her daughter, who had fallen to the ground crying, and rushed her inside.”

Great White Shark Sighting Off Cape May

 

 

 

 

 

 

” When a shark emerged from the water with an open mouth and triangular 2-inch teeth, fisherman Steve Clark knew he was having a close encounter with a great white. The chance meeting, he says, happened about 5 p.m. Saturday at 28-Mile Wreck, the site of a World War II shipwreck off of Cape May, New Jersey.

” We were worried that it was going to harm the engine. It started to mouth it, but it wasn’t actually biting down,” said Clark. “I think it was just feeling it. It was just cool because she stayed around the boat for so long and really let us look at her.

  Clark’s team of fishermen spotted the 16-foot great white shark swimming toward their 35-foot-boat, the 35 Everglades.

  The shark swam around the vessel for about 20 minutes before ripping a chum basket of fish right from the side of the boat — the only time Clark felt nervous during the encounter. Members of the crew took photos and videos as the shark swam nearby.”

Panting Dog Spotted Inside Locked SUV In 90-Degree Texas Heat – Wet’n’Wild Splash Town Water Park

 

 

 

 

Published on Jun 16, 2014

” As Xochitl Dalton pulled into the parking lot of the Wet’n’Wild Splash Town water park, a disturbing sight caught her eye. “I looked over and saw that there was a huge yellow Lab,” she told KPRC-TV in Houston, noting the dog inside an SUV with Wisconsin plates parked next to her vehicle. “It looked like it was really, really hot.” Indeed, temperatures in the area passed 90 degrees on Friday, but investigators later told the station that the temperature inside the vehicle in question could have been as much as 140 degrees — and deputies said the dog was on the verge of passing out after being locked inside for hours. So Dalton summoned police to the water park in Spring, Texas, about a half hour north of Houston — but she did something else, too.

“I posted a picture of the dog to several Facebook groups,” she told KPRC. “I was amazed at how many people were wanting to rescue this dog.” In fact, about a dozen people from all over town rushed over to the water park to help.
“I immediately dropped everything, got in my car and drove from Magnolia up here, ready to bust the windshield out,” Melissa Camp, who saw the post on Facebook, told the station. On Dalton’s Facebook page, as she apparently chatted with concerned friends after posting the photo of the dog, she writes that a police officer had arrived but wouldn’t break the vehicle’s window: “He is trying to find the owner!” Dalton writes. “Really??” 

  Before those gathered around the vehicle broke any windows and before police returned to the scene, KPRC reported that a park employee squeezed his hand through a small opening in the window, unlocked the door, and got the panting Labrador out.

  When the park closed Friday evening, KPRC reported that authorities found the dog’s owner and arrested him. He wasn’t identified but deputies indicated he’d be booked into jail on animal cruelty charges. The dog underwent a health evaluation and was in the custody of the Harris County Constable Pct. 1 Office.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rare White Whale Returns to Australia, Delighting His Local Fans

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” This week, an extremely rare albino whale was spotted off the coast of Australia. The whale’s name is Migaloo, the Aboriginal word for “white fellow.” This is the third year in a row Migaloo has been spotted on his annual migration, lovingly referred to as a whale parade. Now Australian Migaloo watchers are tracking his every movement — on Thursday he was spotted making his way past the Sydney coast.

  Migaloo is one of only a few documented all-white humpback whales in the world. Another all-white whale was spotted in Norway, and a mostly white whale has been seen off the coast of Argentina.

  He was first seen in 1991 as a juvenile. It is unclear how old Migaloo is, but scientists estimate he is in his twenties, so he might be a millennial whale. Like any good millennial, he has an active Twitter account, @Migaloo1. “

Story behind this video:
After a dog graduates my off leash training program, I’ll offer a “doggy outing service”. I pick up the dogs (usually between 8-12 dogs), take them to dog beaches or other dog friendly places, let them play together, while continuing to practice the training they’ve learned. I’ll rinse off any sand, trim their nails (if needed), then take them home. 2 1/2 year old Didga, aka ‘Worlds Best Skateboarding Cat’, who I adopted from the shelter at 13 weeks old has been joining us on the outings her whole life. Especially being a part of the group photos or videos I make. A GoPro camera was used for all the shots for this “Happy” video.

When I’m not on the group outings, Didga still joins me everywhere and loves riding in the car, at times she is very “dog like” sticking her head out the window as we drive down the road, riding on my stand-up paddle board or enjoying a little swim. Most cats don’t like being in water, BUT when she was young she didn’t react too negatively to water, so I took on a HUGE challenge of ‘desensitising’ her even more to the water. FYI – It was several months of patience and dedication to achieve what you see in the video. I’m a professional animal trainer so PLEASE don’t try getting your cat to swim at home.

Although I don’t make any money directly from this video because I used the “Happy” song, I couldn’t think of any other song that goes so perfectly with the – HAPPY DOGS!” 

Thanks for the Likes, comments (I read them), shares and SUBSCRIBING. Check out my other videos, (6+ million views) I’m just getting started, so more videos on the way.

Thanks, Robert And Didga

‘Rat Girl’ Breeds, Unleashes Rats Across San Francisco

 

 

 

 

 

 

” San Francisco is in the midst of a rat problem, and one woman’s rodent obsession might be partly to blame.

” Authorities say a woman living in a residential hotel has been breeding them. And then releasing them into the public. Police say when they last checked she was living with 300 rats in deplorable living conditions.” (Via KNTV)

  KTVU obtained this 2011 footage of a rat-infested hotel room, which was formerly occupied by a 43-year-old woman known as “Erica J.” or informally, “Rat Girl.” San Francisco’s animal control department says Erica compulsively breeds the rats, which then infest wherever she lives.

  The city’s Public Safety Department ultimately had to exterminate over one thousand rats in that hotel. Since then, animal control officers have been confiscating Erica’s rats when they can, but they say she always seems to find more.”

Early Mankind’s Secret Weapon For Slaying Mammoths? Dogs

 

 

Ancient dog scull found in Predmosti

Evidence from Predmosti, in the Czech republic - a large fragment of bone was placed in a dog's mouth shortly after burial - some 27,000 years ago. Picture: Mietje Germonpre.

 

 

 

” After hunting them for at least a million years, humans suddenly became really good at killing woolly mammoths, but modern humans haven’t been able to figure out just how they did it. A new theory suggests that, maybe, man’s best friend played an important role.

  In central Europe and north Asia, there are massive mammoth graveyards dating back to 44,000 years ago, with tens of thousands of mammoth bones, some arranged in geometric patterns and some arranged into huts, found with stone tools and evidence of people. There wasn’t however, any evidence of how they were killing the shaggy ancestors of today’s elephants.

  In an article titled “How do you kill 86 mammoths?,” Penn State anthropologist Pat Shipman theorizes that humans’ secret weapons may have been dogs.

  While combing through the literature about the mammoth megasites, Shipman found that none of the usual big-mammal slayers seemed like plausible explanations for a mass mammoth die-off.”

” ‘ One of the greatest puzzles about these sites is how such large numbers of mammoths could have been killed with the weapons available during that time,’ she said.

  Theories on such ‘mammoth megasites’ have included floods washing bones to a certain spot or herds that fell through thin ice. But they seem to date to 44,000 years ago, around the time modern humans emerged.

  She found that ‘few of the mortality patterns from these mammoth deaths matched either those from natural deaths among modern elephants killed by droughts or by culling operations with modern weapons that kill entire family herds of modern elephants at once’.

  The professor concluded in her research, outlined in Quaternary International, that the mammoths were killed in the same spot for many generations. ‘There’s something that’s drawing them to that location,’ she said.

  She believes the sites may have been on migration routes in spots where early humans and their domesticated dogs could attack.”
