B.C. dad slugs cougar that attacked two-year-old daughter
With a cougar’s jaws wrapped around the head of his two-year-old daughter, Travis Nielsen selflessly did what any other parent would do.
The Tahsis, B.C. father fired a punch at the big cat and shielded his daughter, Bree, before it could do any more harm.
The terrifying scene unfolded at a property in the remote western Vancouver Island community at around 12:30 p.m. Monday. Nielsen, his wife and their daughter were sitting in deck chairs in their backyard when suddenly, the animal pounced on the toddler from behind.
The little girl was taken to hospital and treated for a laceration on her earlobe from the animal’s teeth, as well as some scratches on her chest and back, but was otherwise miraculously okay.
Conservation officers credited Nielsen for preventing an even worse outcome.
Nielsen said in all his time on Vancouver Island, he’s never seen anything like it.
Couple on a United Flight Found a Full Bag of Barf in Their Seat-Back Pocket
Janet Masters and her husband are from Auburn, California, and went to Hawaii for their wedding anniversary recently.
And when they were flying back on United, they found the barf bag in one of their seat-back pockets was already FULL. Someone had thrown up in it, and covered it in a blanket.
Which is nasty for a couple reasons. The person who BARFED left it there, and the CLEANING crew left it there. And somehow it gets worse.
When Janet handed the bag to the flight attendant, it SPILLED . . . on both her AND her husband. So the attendant offered them new seats. But the vomit smell was already on their clothes . . . for the rest of the flight.
You know that smell. And remember . . . this is somebody ELSE’S vomit. Janet says, quote, “Smelling that smell on us and around us was just totally, totally disgusting.”
After the flight they tried complaining to United, but didn’t get anywhere until they got with the local news, who did a story.
That got them a $300 flight voucher. But they say they’ve lost their faith and trust in United.
Guy Steals a $1.12 Spoon to “Eat His Cap’n Crunch” . . .
46-year-old Gregg Lerner of St. Petersburg, Florida was busted for stealing a SPOON from Walmart on Thursday night . . . just one spoon, nothing else.
According to the police report, when a cop asked him why he did it, he said he needed it to, quote, “eat his Cap’n Crunch with.”
The spoon only cost $1.12, but because Gregg has two convictions for theft, he was charged with a felony. He could be looking at up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
A Woman Kicked Another Woman in the Face For Passing Gas Near Her
48-year-old Jeanelle Callahan of Clearwater, Florida was arrested on Thursday afternoon, when she got drunk and punched her male roommate in the face.
A basic, boring crime like that wouldn’t make our radar . . . especially in Florida. But what she did AFTERWARD does.
She was in a van on the way to county jail with a 60-year-old woman named Virginia Turner, who’d been arrested for trespassing. And apparently Virginia passed GAS near her in the van.
According to the cops, Jeanelle freaked out.
They were both handcuffed, so Jeanelle tried to elbow Virginia in the face. When that didn’t work, she managed to get her right leg up and KICK Virginia in the face.
Jeanelle was already facing a battery charge for hitting her roommate, so she got a SECOND count of battery for attacking Virginia. (The Smoking Gun)
