Sausalito Crash 12:14:14

 

 

 

  While Silas Patlove was out for an afternoon cycling excursion though the hills outside of Sausalito he experienced a dangerous encounter with a sizable specimen of the species Odocoileus virginianus , otherwise known as the white-tailed deer . As Mr Patlove was speeding downhill on the shoulder of Alexander Avenue he had the all too common experience , among motorists at least , cyclists thankfully not so much ,  of watching helplessly as the buck in question leapt the highway guardrail directly in his path .

    As luck would have it , the cyclist was armed with a helmet-cam which survived the crash and herewith provides the reader with a visual record of his deer encounter . Readers will be pleased to know that Silas escaped with a minor concussion and some small memory loss but is otherwise ok . Watch the video and be thankful for both bicycle helmets and helmet-cams .

Neo-Nazi Police Chief Seriously Mauled By Three Lions At Barcelona Zoo

” Ataque de leones a hombre Zoo Barcelona, Man seriously injured after being mauled by three lions at Barcelona Zoo after he jumped into their enclosure

  A man has been left with serious injuries after jumping into a lion enclosure at Barcelona zoo where he was picked mauled by three of the animals. Dressed in military uniform, the man climbed over railings and began scaling one of the walls in the enclosure before being picked off by one of the animals and thrown into a pit.

  The 45 year old was rescued around 30 minutes later covered in scratches and bite marks. He was taken to the city’s Hospital de la Vall D’Hebron where he remains in a serious but not life threatening condition.
According to Spanish reports, the man climbed over fencing to enter the enclosure as horrified tourists watched on.

  Footage of the bizarre incident shows him scaling one of the enclosure’s walls before being tossed by the leg into a pit by a lioness. He emerged some 30 minutes later after fire fighters used hoses to fight the animals off of him. According to local reports the man, named by El Pais as Justo Jose MP, is a neo-Nazi demonstrator.

  He was arrested last month in the city centre after draping banners emblazoned with Swastikas over the famous Casa Mila building in an anti-abortion protest. It is not known whether the incident at the zoo was a demonstration, though fire fighters said the man could not have entered the enclosure accidentally.

  The security system makes it impossible for a person to fall into the enclosure. It cannot have been by accident, to enter (the enclosure) you have to want to go in,’ said chief fire fighter of the Bomberos de Barcelona, Hector Carmona. While he emerged from the enclosure covered in bite marks and scratches, zoo keepers have insisted the lions were merely trying to play with him, Spanish news reports. ‘The intention was not to kill him, they were just trying to play with him, Ignasi Armengol, director of Barcelona Municipal Services said.’ “

‘Bird Bomb’ Explodes When It’s Shot By Afghanistan Police

 

 

 

 

 

” Why did the brown and white bird walk down the road? Apparently to blow somebody up. That’s what Afghanistan police surmised when they spotted the large, non-native bird walking along a highway with an antenna, explosives and an electronic device strapped to its body.

  When police shot the bird, it exploded, scattering “suspicious metal stuff,” provincial police chief Maj. Gen. Abdul Nabi Ilham told NBC News.

  Police are still examining the various remains, but have identified what appears to be a GPS device and a small camera. The bird was first spotted close to a police checkpoint in Faryab province in the north where the Taliban are active.

  Investigators speculated that the bird may have been “deployed” on a surveillance mission.

  It’s the first time ever security forces have encountered such a “bird bomb,” though Hamas militants rigged a donkey with explosives and set it on a path heading toward Israeli soldiers during fighting in Gaza last summer. No humans were injured, but the donkey exploded. “

Louisiana Town To Kill All Pit Bulls And Rottweilers: Those Who Don’t Surrender Face Police Action

Louisiana Dog Ban

 

 

 

” A town in Louisiana has recently voted to ban all Pit Bulls and Rottweilers, calling them “vicious breeds” of dogs. Current owners of these specific breeds have just one more month to either move out of town, or hand their family pet over to the government to be killed.

  While there has traditionally been heavy debate over larger breeds of dogs, in recent years the debate has began to die down, because an overwhelming majority of people now agree that like humans, a dog’s temperament and personality are largely based on their upbringing and life experiences.

  Sadly, town officials in Moreauville, Louisiana are stuck in a very immature state of mind where they are basically prejudice against breeds of dogs.

  Dog owners were notified of the recent ordinance by mail, in a letter which stated that the dogs will be taken away by the local government and killed on December 1st.

The letter reads:

TO ALL PITT BULL AND ROTTWEILER OWNERS:

  PLEASE BE INFORMED THAT THE VILLAGE OF MOREAUVILLE IS ENFORCING THE ORDINANCE THAT WAS PASSED ON OCTOBER 13TH, 2014 THAT BANS PITT BULLS AND ROTTWEILERS WITHIN THE CORPORATE LIMITS OF MOREAUVILLE, LA.

  YOU ARE HEREBY GIVEN NOTICE THAT YOU HAVE UNTIL DECEMBER 1, 2014 TO REMOVE YOUR PITT BULLS OR ROTTWEILERS FROM YOUR PREMISES. IF YOUR PITT BULLS OR ROTTWEILERS ARE NOT REMOVED BY THIS DATE, YOUR ANIMALS WILL BE IMPOUNDED AND TRANSPORTED TO A VETERINARY CLINIC FOR FURTHER DISPOSITION. YOU WILL ALSO BE FINED FOR VIOLATING THE ORDINANCE. “

 

 

 

    Readers can read the entire story here and below you can find an update from KALB news that reveals that the town has put the ban on hold temporarily .

 

 

 

” The Village of Moreauville is putting plans to officially enact its pit bull and Rottweiler ban on hold.

  They’re saying after an outcry from people around the world about a breed ban that would force a family to get rid of their beloved dog, Zeus, they’re taking a step back to figure out what they should do next.     

“I never thought it would get this far,” said O’Hara Owens, owner of Zeus.

  It has been a whirlwind weekend for Moreauville residents O’Hara Owens and her mother, Joanna Armand.

  Minutes after News Channel 5’s story on a village breed ban that promised to take their beloved pit bull, Zeus, away from them aired, their phones blew up.    

” It has become crazy,” said Armand. “Crazy, hectic. But, in a good way.”

  On October 13, the Village of Moreauville passed an ordinance banning pit bulls and Rottweilers from village limits.    

A letter was sent out saying if you didn’t comply, your dog would be taken away for “further disposition.” “

 

 

If you find this idea as appalling is we do you can sign a petition at the link below .

 

 

” The Owens family has also started a petition which hopes to overturn the ordinance.

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. “
