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.

Utah Bill Permits Execution By Firing Squad

Firing-squad1

(PCM) Execution by firing squad is a cause of death that one would have assumed has not been practiced in a good number of years, however there is still an active bill in the state of Utah that permits this particular style of execution.

The state of Utah previously banned firing squad executions back in 2004, however the last one that occurred on record in the state was only back in 2010. Utah Governor Gary R. Herbert just recently approved a bill to bring back execution by firing squad only in the event that proper drugs for a lethal injection can not be obtained.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Herbert explains the decision by saying “We regret anyone ever commits the heinous crime of aggravated murder to merit the death penalty and we prefer to use our primary method of lethal injection when such a sentence is issued. However, when a jury makes the decision and a judge signs a death warrant, enforcing that lawful decision is the obligation of the executive branch.”

It seems that there is currently a nationwide shortage of lethal injection drugs, so that is another reason why Gov. Herbert has approved the firing squad bill despite it being a both outdated and quite gruesome. The firing squad execution would only come into play if the prison could not obtain the lethal injection drugs 30 days prior to the scheduled execution date for the inmate.

Fake Gun Store Set Up As A Way To Prevent Gun Violence

Guns-PSA1

(PCM) A fake gun shop was set up in New York City last week by a group called States United to Prevent Gun Violence. The group feels very strongly about their stance on the importance of teaching people gun safety and filmed a PSA inside the fake gun shop with unsuspecting customers.

The fake shop was stocked to the brim with over 100 realistic looking prop guns, as well as, hidden camera and an actor playing the salesman. The actor who portrayed the salesman told the would-be gun buyers so pretty horrific stories about specific crimes that each of the certain types of guns had be involved with in the past. The actor/salesman included stories about homicides, suicides, accidental shootings and more.

The fake stores main target was first time gun buyer and it was set up for two days while the social experiment was conducted. The group sales that they felt there was a need to film the PSA, as many people in this country feel that keeping a firearm in the home somehow makes that home a safer place. However, studies contradict those opinions and show that there is more increased risk of death or injury by actually having the firearm in the house.

You can watch the States United to Prevent Gun Violence PSA below, which now has over 3 million views on YouTube:

Wish You Could Smell Like A Burger King Whopper?

Burger-King1

(PCM) For anyone that ever wished they could savor the scent and smell like their favorite flame-grilled Burger King Whopper, Burger King in Japan has the answer for you.

The company is releasing a limited-edition fragrance that will smell exactly like its’ trademark sandwich. Here’s the catch … unfortunately you will have to be in Japan to get your hands on scent and it will be available for one day only, ironically on April 1st (April Fool’s Day).

Rest assured this is not an April Fool’s Day prank, as an advertisement for the upcoming fragrance titled “Flame-Grilled” has been running since mid-March. The fragrance will be selling for $5,000 yen which equals out to be about $41 in U.S. dollars. The company had previously released a scent called “Flame” here in the U.S. several years ago, so it is assumed that they will be using a similar formula in Japan.

April 1st also happens to be National Whopper Day in Japan and while not an official holiday, it is registered with the Japanese Anniversary Association for recognition.

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.

Playing Hide-and-Seek Is A Big No-No In IKEA Stores

IKEA1

(PCM) The fact that furniture and housewares retailer IKEA even had to issue a statement in regards to customers playing hide-and-seek in their stores is utterly ridiculous, but the company is done “playing games” and has made a new rule, telling their customers : No more hide-and-seek in the store!

It seems that online groups have been popping online in order organize massive games of hide-and-seek that take place inside IKEA stores across the country. It seems that the trend is currently only occurring in Europe, but could soon make its’ way over to The States.

In the Netherlands, over 30,000 people signed up via Facebook for a massive hide-and-seek game that was supposed to take place in a store in Eindhoven, which possible could have broken the World Record for the largest game of hide-and-seek ever, but alas, the organizers were not permitted to play and the massive game failed to take place.

A spokesperson for IKEA says that the new trend is hard to control and that the company’s main focus is the safety of customers in their stores, which is hard to do if those customers can’t be located.

IKEA goes on to claim that they are thrilled that customers want to gather together with friends and family to have some fun, but the massive hide-and-seek games in the stores need to cease, as they have gotten so out of control the company can no longer guarantee the safety of both the customers and their own employees.

We certainly understand the safety concern, but admit it … a massive game of hide-and-seek at IKEA does seem a little appealing, right?
