Boy, oh boy, have we got a “Loser of the Day” for ya today folks!
Bad enough that this guy was attacked by a bear, but then his partner attempted to shoot the animal ….., and put a couple of rounds in him instead!
The man was hunting with a companion south of Fernie when he was attacked by a grizzly bear at around 9 a.m. Sunday.
imagesCA2ICD9WConservation officers and emergency crews found the man was initially injured during the attack by a boar grizzly bear, said environment ministry spokesman David Karn.
The man was transported to a hospital in Calgary by STARS air ambulance after being brought out of the woods by an ATV. “STARS responded to the Fernie area around 9:23 a.m. to transport a 56-year old male who had been mauled by a bear and then shot when another person attempted to neutralize the animal,” said STARS spokesman David Fairbanks.
A pet parrot that spoke with a British accent when it disappeared from its home four years ago has been reunited with its owner — and the bird now speaks Spanish.
untitledThe reunion was brought about by a Southern California veterinarian who mistook Nigel, an African gray parrot, for her own missing bird, the Daily Breeze reported Sunday.
Teresa Micco tracked Nigel’s microchip to Darren Chick, a Brit who lives in Torrance.
“I introduced myself and said, ‘Have you lost a bird?'” Micco told the newspaper. “He initially said, ‘No.’ But he thought I meant recently.”
When she verified Chick’s name and said she had his African grey parrot, “He looked at me like I was crazy.”
He said his bird went missing four years earlier.
Little is known about Nigel’s whereabouts the past four years, but Chick says the bird’s British accent is gone, and it now chatters in Spanish.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – A truck containing 18 tons of Crisco sticks headed to a grocery store chain distribution center was stolen in a Florida city by a group of slippery thieves.

Talk about a mean-mama!
A North Carolina mother had her son arrested this week for taking her Pop-Tarts without permission, police report.
The child was busted on a larceny charge, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, whose officers were summoned Monday night to a Charlotte home by Latasha Renee Love, the accused juvenile’s 37-year-old mother.
latashalovemugA police report notes that “the known suspect stole Pop-tarts belonging to his mother at their home at 530 Goldstaff Ln. The suspect was juvenile arrested at the time of the offence.”
Cops described the stolen goods as “Foodstuffs” valued at $5.
Love, who reportedly has had discipline issues with her child, apparently decided to have him arrested as some kind of a lesson. Love is pictured above in a mug shot snapped after a September 2009 drunk driving arrest.
The misdemeanor case against the boy will be handled in juvenile court.
Authorities say a patient wanting out of an Arizona hospital used an ambulance as his getaway vehicle.
untitledGoodyear police spokeswoman Lisa Kutis says Michael Lopez hijacked a parked ambulance Sunday outside West Valley Hospital in metro Phoenix.
Kutis says a firefighter sitting in the back was able to jump out safely.
Police pursued Lopez, who failed to pull over.
Authorities used GPS to locate the vehicle and Lopez at his home in the suburb of Avondale.
Kutis says he was arrested on charges of theft of means of transportation, felony flight, failure to yield to police and disorderly conduct.
She did not know why Lopez was hospitalized.
She says Lopez, who felt he was being hospitalized against his will, is being booked into a Phoenix jail.
The ambulance was returned.
NATO and the rest of the E.U. has been urging Turkey to help in the fight against ISIS…………, so just to show they are doing something, they decided to bomb the Kurds!
After a long investigation by the Perspective Research Department, we have come to the conclusion that it’s not always easy to determine if someone is dead.
Science, medicine, law or religions don’t always offer simple guidance either.
But specific details around death do matter, and are not merely topics for philosophical debate.
For example, when should someone be taken off life support?
When is someone dead enough for organ donation?
These are questions that may never be answered satisfactorily, but we have concluded that if someone starts to smell, they are probably good and dead!
Well folks, it seems I’m not the only one who does (or did) stuff like this!
