Animal tales!

Well kids, these next few stories are all about our animal friends:

MOOSE ON THE LOOSE!

A man who jumped onto the back of a moose as it swam across a lake could face animal-harassment charges in British Columbia, but would likely escape the threat of prosecution for a similar stunt in another province given Canada's patchwork of animal-rights laws, an expert said Tuesday.

While B.C.'s chief conservation officer said the culprit appears to have committed a serious offence that carries a hefty fine, the Animal Alliance of Canada said the province is one of the few Canadian jurisdictions to have clearly defined rules against harassing animals.

DENVER - A video of an unfazed, fluffy house cat staring down a large mountain lion as the predator paws at a Colorado kitchen window has gone viral, receiving nearly 1 million views on YouTube in just a couple of days.

The footage, recorded at a home in the Rocky Mountains about 10 miles west of Boulder, shows the cat sitting on the windowsill and meowing as the much-bigger mountain lion looks into the house, its eyes glinting gold in the light.

The video was posted on Sunday and by mid-morning on Tuesday it had already been watched more than 945,000 times.

It was filmed by Tom Mabe, a Louisville, Kentucky-based comedian who says the stand-off came during a visit his family made about a month ago to friends in Colorado.

In the video, the mountain lion repeatedly paws at the window as Mabe can be heard calling his wife to see.

 Boy, do we have an "Asshole of the Day" for ya today bunky!

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A 49-year-old man is accused of drowning his pet rabbit in a hotel swimming pool near Tampa.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says Steve B. Rodd of Tampa intentionally dropped the rabbit into the pool at the Vista Inn on Friday. He was charged with aggravated cruelty to animals on Monday.

A guest at the hotel told officials that he saw the rabbit floating in the pool and that maintenance staff removed it.
Rodd is in the Hillsborough County Jail. According to records, he doesn't yet have an attorney to contact for comment on the case.

Boy, those darned Mennonites, (Amish) ya never know what they're gonna do next:

A speeding horse and buggy driver had some explaining to do early Sunday morning.

The buggy driver had to walk the horse and buggy back to the farm from which it was borrowed after a wild ride that ended in careless driving charges and liquor violations.

The driver was an acquaintance of the farmer who lent out the horse and buggy, said Perth County OPP Const. Kees Wijnands.

“Had the owner known what they were up to, he probably wouldn't let them use the buggy,” he said.

The young man caught the eye of OPP officers when he and two friends swerved down the road in Milverton at a “greater than normal buggy speed.”

The officers were parked at Main and Mill streets and watched the buggy pass by again a short time later. This time the buggy driver sped up the horse when he saw the cruiser, police said.

Police followed the buggy southbound on Main Street without lights or sirens to avoid scaring the horse. The buggy was still moving erratically when the driver attempted a sharp left turn onto Pugh Street, police said.

The horse jumped the curb, the buggy tipped and all three occupants, along with bottles of liquor, spilled onto the road.

“These three occupants could have been hurt and you're looking at the horse too. All the horse can do is what the bridle and bit tell it to do,” Wijnands said.

No one was hurt, including the horse, and the buggy landed on its wheels.

Because the buggy is not classified as a motor vehicle, charges related to driving with open alcohol cannot be laid, Wijnands explained.

The driver and his passengers, two young men in their 20s, were charged with having liquor outside of a licenced venue or private residence.

The driver will be paying about $450 in fines for the buggy joy ride.

This is not the first time a farmer from the Anabaptist community has been victimized. There have been cases where buggies have been stolen and left in ditches.

“They don't usually complain because they don't want to make a fuss,” Wijnands said.

OR HOW ABOUT AN AMISH DOING DONUTS:

It's a jungle out there for everyone, particularly some of these endearing yet bizarre creatures of the wild. For example, the demonic looking (yet somehow still cute) Aye-aye, a lemur native to Madagascar shown above, is endangered because the local villagers there consider him bad luck. As a result, the poor things have adapted so that they hide up in the top of the trees there. Stay safe, little guy. Via The Richest

And those results show that it's definitely, absolutely, without a doubt nothing other than a fried chicken tender, just as the restaurant chain has insisted from day one, ABC News reports.
