So I have noticed when browsing Yahoo! Odd news that it always has general themes to the stories. Like last week it was disgusting stories, this week it happens to be animals and more specifically animals being where they shouldn't be. Sadly there are some animal cruelty in some of these articles. I know none of my followers would ever do anything cruel to an animal but I just wanted to instill in everyone today the importance of not abusing animals. It makes me sad to read someof these stories and what some people do to defenseless animals.
Most Unusal Pet Insurance Claims
I'm not making this up I swear! There is a contest for most unusual pet insurance claims. Wow, are we serious? The winner was Ellie, a labrador, ate a beehive that contained pesticides. She has recovered and even won a trophey in theshape of a ham and several dog treats and toys. This is a contest put on by VPI and a couple dozen dogs enter the contest. The runners up were a border collie that ran through a window just to get at a mailman and a terrier that thought a chainsaw was his food. All dogs recieved vet care and are fine. Weird awards.
Tigers in a Bag

The tiger cub would have died had it not been discovered during the baggage check. The probable reason for thissmuggling was that the cub could have been sold on the black market in Iran for the equivalent of $3,200. Wow. This is so sad. I am happy that they identified this cub before the flight and the wildlife conservation it went to has been able to nurse it back to health
She Threw the Cat Away
Mary Bale was outside and she saw a cat and decided to reach down and pet it, seems normal enough. Well the secuirty cameras caught her picking up the cat and throwing it into one of those "wheelie bins" and walked away. These security cameras were installed after Darryl Mann's cat went missing and needless to say he was PO when he reviewed the tape. Luckily Lola, the cat, is fine.
Now Mary's house is being protected by police guard since animal activist are protesting and are justifiably angry with her. She has gotten death threats though which I believe go above and beyond what she did but they're a lot of crazy and cruel people out there in the world (including her)
Snakes in Electricity Boxes
A snake decided to electrocute itself by slithering into an electricil box at Vassar Brothers Hospital in NY. The snake wasn't the only one affected by this, it caused a 10 hour power outage at the hospital. This is actually a common occurance for animals to electrocute themselves but a utility spokesman said this was the first instance where a snake has done it.Are animals just suicidal?
It Must Have Been One Hell of a Hangover
