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:

Kat Von D Won’t Apologize For Controversial Lipstick Shade

Underage-Red

(PCM) Beauty retailer Sephora announced that they would be removing a shade of lipstick titled “Underage Red”, part of Kat Von D’s exclusive collection, from their stores after its’ name stirred up quite a bit of controversy online.

The lipstick, which is bold red in color, has been part of Kat Von D’s Seophora collection and available in stores for over a year now, but it only takes one person to become offended to start the chain reaction of online critiques of the name, Kat Von D and Sephora as well.

However, Kat Von D is standing behind the lipstick’s name and is refusing to apologize. She posted the following on her Facebook page to address the controversy:

She says that she finds the comments by others to be both “inaccurate and appalling” and will not apologize nor pull the lipstick from her collection, despite Sephora’s decision to stop selling it in their stores.
This is not the first time that Kat Von D’s shade names for her make-up collection drew in criticism, as back in 2012, she had a shade named Celebutard that created a bit of a backlash.

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.

US Weekly Issues A Retraction After Publishing Allegedly Fake Commentary From Kendall Jenner

Kendall-Bruce1

(PCM) Celebrity gossip magazine, US Weekly, has issued an retraction after they published comments allegedly made by model and “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star Kendall Jenner about her father Bruce Jenner’s gender transformation.

US Weekly ran a story titled “Kendall Jenner Breaks Silence on Bruce Jenner’s Transition: ‘I Will Always Love My Dad’” on March 18 and in the story Kendall is quoted as being incredibly supportive of her father’s decision.

Kendall’s alleged quote reads “He’s a wonderful man. And just because he’s changing shoes now, so to speak, doesn’t make him less wonderful. I will always love my dad, whether he’s a man or a woman.”

After the story was published, Kendall was outraged and took to her social media account to slam US Weekly and further claim that she never even did an interview with them in the first place to make the alleged comments.

Kendall’s father Bruce Jenner has yet to publicly comment on the rumors and speculation about his supposed gender transformation, so a quote from his daughter would be assuming that all of the rumors are in fact true.

US Weekly revealed that the supposed interview took place with a freelance journalist during the taping of the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber back on March 14. Despite Kendall’s comments about the interview never taking place, the journalist in question stands by the interviews authenticity, however US Weekly had some concern about the manner in which it was obtained. They issued an apology to both Kendall and Bruce Jenner and have since removed the article from their publication.
