Allegedly Drunk Florida Men Post Video With Endangered Owl And Claim They’re Going To Eat It

Owl-drunk

(PCM) After a video surfaced online with two men driving through West Palm Beach, Florida holding a federally protected owl on their laps, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission has launched an investigation into the incident.

In the video, a Great-Horned Owl can be seen in the vehicle with the two men. It was posted to Facebook on March 16th and the comment attached to the video read “3am in the morning we are drunk and we are high. We bout to take this thing home and eat it up just found it on the road.”

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission are investigating the video and claim that also in the video you can see one of the two men pick up a bottle, presumably alcohol, drink it while they talk about being drunk or high. The Commission says that the type of owl is actually extremely dangerous and is protected by both Federal and State law.

The two men, if caught, could be facing felony charges for even having the owl in their possession, let alone if any harm actually came to the animal. Everyone wants to know where the owl is now and that it is safe. State officials claim they were able to make contact with the man in the video and he informed them that he and his friend had let the owl go the next day.

The owl may have been injured initially after being hit by a car and official still worry that it could be out there somewhere wandering around still injured.

Why Would Someone Photocopy A Cat?

cat-photocopy1

(PCM) We have to ask ourselves that question after a photo of a xeroxed cat has been popping up in the library of the University of Wisconsin. It appear that this has occurred more than once, as several different images of the photocopied cat have been left as evidence all around the library.

Students studying in the University’s Steenbock Library are unsure if this is some kind of prank or if a fellow student could be photocopying the cat for some sort research purposes, either way, it is certainly a bit odd.

The Steenbrock Library is after all, the University’s library for agriculture and life sciences, human ecology and veterinary medicine. So, let the speculation begin? In a way we kind of feel bad for the cat, as they generally don’t belong on the xerox machine.

Jackrabbit

(PCM) Many people hear about the city of Fargo, North Dakota and immediately think about the Coen Brothers film or the hit FX television series, however residents in real life Fargo, ND are dealing with an almost cinematic type of issue … they are being invaded by jackrabbits!

Yes, you read that correctly! The city of Fargo is being invaded by jackrabbits, the size of small dogs, who are eating up all of the cities shrubs and trees, as well as, leaving their droppings all over residential grounds.

Residents in the area are claiming that they are forced to chase the jackrabbits out of their yards every morning, as there are at least 40 or 50 of them there everyday. Due to the fact that jackrabbits are wild animals, the city’s pest control department refuses to intervene, and it a move that is sure to get PETA’s panties in a bunch told residents they should probably just poison the animals which thankfully many are choosing not to do!

There is currently no city ordinance put in place to deal with the jackrabbit situation, however residents are in the process of going about staring a formal process to get some kind of ordinance put in place.

Zombie Cat Comes Back From The Dead

Zombie-cat1

(PCM) The nickname Zombie Cat has been playfully given to the cat who was presumed dead and buried by his heartbroken owners after being struck by a car in Tampa, Florida, only to return from the dead nearly five days later.

Zombie Cat’s real name is Bart and his owner claims that after he was struck by the car, the cat was showing absolutely no signs of life and he suffered wounds to his face, a broken jaw, and a damaged eye.

Five days after the burial, Bart’s owners were shocked to see the cat alive again in their neighbors yard. He had somehow managed to claw his way out of the grave and towards fresh air. His survival is a true miracle.

While Bart was certainly very weak and dehydrated after the ordeal, the local area Humane Society in Tampa, where his owners took him to be treated, expect Bart to make a full recovery. He recently underwent surgery to wire his jaw, fix his palette, and remove his damaged eye and the vet says that the surgery was a success and Bart will be returning home to his owners as soon as possible.

(PCM) Many people are still in the process of taking down their holiday decorations and of course discarding their live Christmas trees, and now a farm in Maine had claimed that there is a way to still put your discarded Christmas trees to good use instead of putting them out to the trash.

According to Hillary Knight, the barnyard manager at Smiling Hill Farm in Westbrook, Maine, those discarded Christmas trees contain an excellent source of Vitamin C for none other than goats!

The farm has offered to take anyone’s discarded Christmas trees, as their goats will be more than happy to feast on the trees. According to Knight, it is a win-win situation. People can recycle their Christmas trees and the goats get an extra special treat.

It seems that nearly 200 trees have already been donated and there is even another organization, the Vermont Goat Collective, that is also collecting discarded Christmas trees as a healthy treat for their goats.

Who knew?  Maybe this will be a trend that will pick up in other places around the world as well.
