The Dog That Steals Candy

Conan, a 7-year old bull terrier, was placed behind bars for some time, Monday, after stealing food from a Norwegian gas station.

And it wasn’t his first time.

His owner Liss-Hege Jeremiassen said: “He is incredibly fond of food in general and sweets in particular. He has run off a few times before and he always heads for food stores.”

Conan had snuck out of the house Wednesday night to the nearby gas station, picked out his favorite treat, a chocolate-covered rice crisp, and ate it as the cameras captured the whole thing.

“When he was finished he let out this enormous burp,” said store employee Elisabeth Roel.

She had attempted to chase the dog out but gave up after he growled at her. She then called the police, who handed the job over to Falken security.


Dog Performs Heimlich Maneuver on Owner

Debbie Parkhurst, 45, a jewelry artist, had been eating an apple in her home when a piece got stuck in her throat. She attempted the Heimlich maneuver on herself but when it didn’t work, she began pounding on her chest.

Her two-year-old golden retriever, Toby, noticed what was going on and took action.

“The next think I know, Toby’s up on his hind feet and he’s got his front paws on my shoulders,” she said. “He pushed me to the ground, and once I was on my back, he began jumping up and down on my chest.”

According to Parkhurst, the apple piece dislodged and Toby licked her face to prevent her from passing out.

“I literally have pawprint-shaped bruises on my chest. I’m still a little hoarse, but otherwise, I’m OK.

“The doctor said I probably wouldn’t be here without Toby,” said Parkhurst. “I keep looking at him and saying ‘You’re amazing.'”

That’s one clever dog and one lucky lady.


Kitten Head Not Ideal Present

Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a package wrapped in red bows and pink tissue paper containing a note that says ‘I love you’ and the severed head of a kitten!

30 Year old Benjamin Gregory of Pittsburgh was arrested Friday after leaving said package at his ex-girlfriend’s doorstep. He is being charged for stalking and animal cruelty.

Katie Waters, a humane officer investigating the case, said: ‘We have been unable to determine where the kitten came from. It definitely did not belong to the victim.’ She also doubted that the kitten, which was black and between 3 and 4 months old, belonged to Gregory.

‘This has been an extremely difficult case to work on,’ she added.

Gregory is due to appear in court on Thursday.

The only thing that could have made this present any more perfect is if he had waited until Valentine’s day.


Deer Jumps Through Home Window

A family of three where just hanging out in their home in Cambridge, Maine, minding their own business when out of nowhere a 100-pound deer came smashing through their window, Thursday night.

It jumped over a sofa and ran through the house. Matthew Cunningham wrestled with the animal to prevent it from getting near his 4-year old son and was able to lock it in the bathroom.

Once Matthew and his wife, Lori learned wardens wouldn’t be able to help them until the next morning, they asked a neighbor for help.

They then used a piece to plywood to try to direct the deer away from the bathoom and through another window in the home office.

The deer eventually escaped through the window and was nearly struck by a truck.

“It was really scary,” Lori Cunningham said. “We’re so lucky no one got hurt.”

Her son, Zeke confused as to why a deer was in their home in the first place had said, “It’s not Christmas.”


Hunter Bags Hermaphrodite Deer

Joe Stokes shot and killed two deers while hunting in one of Florida’s wildlife management areas in November.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) senior wildlife technician Tim Farley logged in one of the deers at the area’s check station only to discover that it had all the male and female reproductive organs.

That must have been one confused deer.

Farley had also logged in a hermaphrodite the previous day and upon close inspection, he figured out that both deer were more than three years old and had never been bred.

I can’t say I’m surprised. Even deer have standards.
