Indiana Alligator

Two men fishing in an Indiana Creek found an alligator.  It's was 2 1/2 feet long and no one knows how it got there.  Although a conservation officer said that it was probably a pet that grew too big and was released in the creek.  One of the men is caring for the alligator until a permanent home can be found.  Bedford, Indiana

Accidental Donation

A used children's clothing store in Minnesota accepted a donation.  Inside the donated children's clothing was more than 100 grams of marijuana.  It was packaged in small baggies for sale which is a felony.  The Maplewood Police have invited the owner to come forward to claim it...not surprisingly, no one has taken them up on the offer. baggies of marijuana

Car in Swimming Pool

A man in North Carolina left his car in a swimming pool.  He said that he had to get home to care for his son so he left the car behind.  The police think there's more to his story because he keeps changing it.  Why did the car end up in a swimming pool?  wet parking spot

Alligator vs. Car

An alligator was crossing I-75 in Florida.  Unfortunately for the critter, Jennifer Rosinski was traveling that stretch of road in her SUV.  She hit the gator and the accident sent her car flipping many times.  The outcome for her was much better than it was for the alligator though.  Jennifer managed to walk away with just bruises and a small cut under her eye.  She said that it was her first major accident and was surprised that it was a "car vs. alligator" accident.  

Only in Minnesota

A shopper in a Walmart was startled when a deer ran into him.  The critter had wandered into the store probably looking for a snack.  It entered through the garden center doors.  Tom Grasswick of Deer Creek was shopping at the Wadena Walmart when the incident ocurred and his first instinct was to tackle the deer.  He covered the deer's eyes so it would calm down and then held the animal down on a pallet of dog food.  He and other customers managed to safely get the deer outside and let it go.  shopping deer

Bear in Car

A family in Virginia was awoken by the sound of their car horn.  What they discovered was a young bear locked inside.  They figure the bear opened a door to get inside to eat some treats and then accidently locked itself inside.  The police opened the door and the young cub ran into the woods.  They warn that not only thieves break into cars so doors should be locked.  visitor

Male Tortoiseshell Kitten

I thought it wasn't possible but a male Tortoiseshell kitten has been found.  The chromosomes needed for a cat to be orange and black make it almost impossible for a male kitten to have those colors.  Now for maybe the first time ever, one has been born.  It's at a shelter and they have already had over 350 offers to adopt.  He's not quite old enough to go to a furever home yet so the vetting process won't happen right away.  Whoever gets this kitten will be very lucky and had best take great care of it.  I love tortoiseshell cats and would definitely love to have this one but I know it won't happen.  rare kitten
