1144045-Cartoon-Of-A-Chorus-Line-Of-Naked-Men-Dancing-The-Can-Can-Royalty-Free-Vector-ClipartVeterinarian Dr. Greg Mertz said he’s amazed the “lucky” 1 1/2-year-old male bird survived the injury, which reportedly came courtesy of two boys.
“He was on the exam table and he was literally just standing there (with the arrow in its head). He was not at all agitated or bothered,” said Mertz,

Staff from the Animal Rescue League brought the injured goose to Mertz’s centre on Aug. 1.
Mertz said he was able to ease the arrow out from the goose’s upper jaw and cheek without any bleeding. He is hopeful the hole will heal over.
“The interesting thing is he swallows well. He eats. He drinks.”

The goose is on antibiotics to prevent infection and will be released back into the wild in about a month.

Ryan-Tannenholtz-2161654A man who enjoyed dressing up as a dog called called Bubblegum Husky has been arrested for having regular sex with a cat.
Ryan Havens Tannenholz, 28, of Boise, Idaho , abused the cat several times between January 2012 and January 2013, police said.
Tannenholz has been charged with six counts of crimes against nature and one count of cruelty to an animal, according to US reports.

Flayrah, an American website dedicated to fans of fictional furry animals, said that Tannenholz liked to portray himself as a range of animals.

Police do not know if the abused cat belonged to Tannenholz and would not say who had reported the crimes.
Officers only issued an arrest for Tannenholz’ arrest late last month and refused to reveal how they learned about the alleged abuse.
Speaking of CATS!

There’s a real-life fat cat that’s straining the scales at 31.4 pounds. The kitty named Buddha is enormous, and enormously overweight.
untitledThe 6-year-old feline was rescued from a Nashville, Tenn., shelter after its previous owner gave him up for adoption. Not only does Buddha need a new home, but the white and black bruiser also needs a new and healthy lifestyle.
The biggest problem with the big cat, just as with Garfield, his cartoon counterpart, is that big Buddha hates to diet and seems to prefer people food, according to the Daily Mail. Buddha’s new owner said the picky eater gets excited around lunch time when most humans eat, especially when foods like pasta are on the menu.
“We tried to give him the gastrointestinal food, the metabolic food, but he didn’t like it,” Achord told the Tennessean. “Whoever owned him before must have been feeding him human food, and that is not good at all for a cat’s health. I’ve been rescuing animals for over 25 years and I’ve never seen anything like this.”

A sour incident has turned into “an amazing thing” for the Potter family of Oshawa.
dynamic_resizeCorbin Potter, the nine-year-old autistic boy who had his lemonade stand shut down by a perturbed neighbour on July 1 and his two sisters accompanied servers around the Baton Rouge restaurant in Whitby from 5 p.m.-8 p.m. on Tuesday, offering customers lemonade for a dollar, with all proceeds going to the Hospital for Sick Children.
Their mom, Dawn, is surprised and thrilled at how an initially negative incident — the unidentified female neighbour called Durham Region Police after her offer of $5 to shut down the stand failed and Corbin was left in tears — has turned into a positive.
“We were definitely heartwarmed, it’s such an amazing thing,” Potter said.
Chris Koch conquered the Calgary Tower stairs Tuesday, climbing all 802 steps as a fundraiser for the Calgary Zoo.
Born without arms or legs, the 34-year-old said he originally got the idea to climb the tower in November simply as a personal challenge.
“I was with my cousin after speaking at a teachers conference and thought it would be cool to do the stairs,” he said.
(How did he climb the stairs without arms or legs, so far we don’t have a clue, however, Chris did say it was a lot easier coming down!!!!!!)

Coming soon to a TV near you — the Rob Ford Crackstarter story.
dynamic_resizeFord is the inspiration for a new half-hour TV series on FOX debuting this fall called, the Crowd Funder Show.
Created by writer Jordan Whelan, who has written columns for the Toronto Sun, it looks at the relationship between funders and kickstarter projects.
“After watching Gawker’s Indiegogo campaign successfully raise enough money to purchase what was thought to be a video of Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine, I was in awe,” Whelan said in a column for Huffington Post Canada. “To think that thousands would fund the unproven with their sole reward being intrinsic, well, that set my gears grinding.”
“Sick Kids Hospital is near and dear to our hearts. Their cousins had heart surgery there — they wouldn’t be here without Sick Kids — and that’s why they chose to do the lemonade stand, so it’s awesome they’re going to do such a huge thing to help out.”
Steven Bortnik, one of the owners of the Baton Rouge location, said he and others were moved to help after reading the story in the Sun.

Organizers of a debauched party scheduled to take place at one of the Toronto’s public beaches could be subject to a $100 fine if they go ahead with their plan.
dynamic_resizeCity of Toronto bylaw enforcement officials warned Wednesday that they could be obliged to issue the fine — and a victim surcharge — if the Oasis Aqualounge’s Sex on Cherry Beach event goes ahead as planned for today.
But that fine would only be handed out if someone at the beach called the city with a complaint. (“I didn’t get laid,” is not considered a complaint! -Ed.)
