After doing some bad methamphetamine, Kim Jong Un and his brown nosing generals decide to hit the U.S. with their new long-range missile the KN-08. The intended target was either Los Angeles or San Francisco according to RAND Corporation analysts.
The missile guidance system fails, as predicted by Stephen Colbert, and lands a thousand miles to the north. The missile and its nuclear warhead land in southern Alberta, Canada. Barley missing blowing up a herd of 10,000 black Angus cattle.
It is time Canada gets on board with the U.S. anti-ballistic missile defense system.
The incident took place in Rajasthan’s Churu where a bull was found to have climbed right on top of a water tank.
The incident took place in Rajasthan’s Churu where a bull was found to have climbed right on top of a water tank. The Bull had climbed right to the top and it threw the city authorities in a fix as they were wondering how to bring the animal down. Even the police did not believe the callers when they called in to report the bull on top of the tower. But then soon, as similar calls began coming in from many different people, the police decided to investigate. Initially, they thought of calling for a crane but that did not look feasible. Also, it was already evening when the bull was spotted and the army officials said that they couldn’t begin an operation at that time as the sun was close to setting. The bull was then shown delicacies and people tried luring it too the ground but the bull, clearly enamoured by the view, did not budge!
Many people tried climbing the tower and bringing the bull down. It loudly moo-ed everyone away! Finally, they found one solution and decided to tie up the bull and rappel it down the tank. A doctor was called and the bull was injected with sedatives. Once it lost consciousness, a double rope and safety belt was tied around the bull before it was rappelled down from the tank and brought safely down. The bull also wrapped in thick blankets so it would not hurt itself in any way during the descent. Well, quite a trip for a bull!
Orphaned mountain gorilla, Ndakasi, dies in the arms of lifelong caretaker and friend, Andre Bauma.
Ndakazi “took her final breath in the loving arms of her caretaker and lifelong friend, Andre Bauma,” a statement from the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo said Tuesday.
She died last month after battling a prolonged illness at the park’s Senkwekwe Center where she had lived for more than a decade, the statement added.
Bauma had looked after Ndakasi ever since she was found clinging to her dead mother’s body by national park rangers and taken to the center which is known for taking care of orphaned mountain gorillas, the statement said.
Her mother had been shot by armed militia as part of a series of killings of gorilla families, it added.
Bodacious #J-31 (1988—May 16, 2000) was a bucking bull. He was known throughout the rodeo sport of bull riding as “the world’s most dangerous bull.” He was also known as “the greatest bull ever to buck.” During his rodeo career he was the 1994 and 1995 Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA) Bucking Bull of the Year, as well as the 1995 Professional Bull Riders (PBR) World Champion Bull. He and Bruiser are the only bulls who have won bucking bull world championship titles in both organizations. Bodacious is most well known for his serious injury to bull riding icon Tuff Hedeman. Coincidentally, Hedeman is the only rider to win the world champion bull rider title in both organizations as well. Not long after, Bodacious also seriously injured Scott Breding. His owner, Sammy Andrews, then retired Bodacious. In 1999, Bodacious was inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame, and in 2017 into the Bull Riding Hall of Fame. In 2019, the PBR inducted Bodacious into the Brand of Honor, which is part of the PBR’s Heroes and Legends Celebration, the PBR’s unique way of honoring outstanding individuals and livestock in the sport of rodeo. For a bucking bull, this is the highest honor he can receive in the sport of bull riding.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) – Three men face federal charges for stepping into a closed area of Brooks River at Brooks Falls, Katmai National Park to capture up-close photographs of brown bears in the river.
The incident happened in 2018, according to a press release from the U.S District Attorney’s Office of the District of Alaska.
On Aug. 9, 2018, 56-year-old David Engelman of Sandia Park, New Mexico; 54-year-old Ronald J. Engleman II of King Salmon; and 30-year-old Steven Thomas of King Salmon allegedly “left the authorized Brooks Falls viewing platform” and jumped into the Brooks River to approach brown bears “feeding on and in the Brooks River just below the falls,” according to the press release.
The national park is a “safe zone” for the numerous bears that roam the Brooks Camp area, requiring visitors to follow specific rules and regulations to protect any bears or people. The release stated the men created a “hazardous condition” when the they allegedly “came within 50 yards of the brown bears.”
The three men were recently charged with creating a hazardous condition in a closed area and approaching within 50 yards of brown bears. If convicted, they could each face a maximum sentence of six months in prison, a $5,000 fine and a year of probation, according to the release.
The National Park Service is still investigating the case.
The United States has, by far, the most horses in the world — approximately 9.5 million, according to the 2006 Global Horse Population report from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. It shows 58,372,106 horses in the world.
Nine other countries have horse populations of more than a million. They are: China (7,402,450), Mexico (6,260,000), Brazil (5,787,249), Argentina (3,655,000), Colombia (2,533,621), Mongolia (2,029,100), Ethiopia (1,655,383) Russian Federation (1,319,358) and Kazakhstsan (1,163,500). Guam (20) and Grenada (30) had the lowest totals.
Two countries, Rwanda and St. Helena, reported no horses.
A separate independent study by the American Horse Council (AHC) in 2005 (based on 2004 statistics) showed a U.S. horse population of 9,223,000, which would indicate that U.S. equine numbers rose by nearly 300,000 in just over a year.
Among U. S. states, the AHC report puts Texas in the lead with 978,822 horses, followed by California with 698,345, Florida with 500,124, Oklahoma with 326,134, Kentucky with 320,173, Ohio with 306,898 and Missouri with 281,255.
Rhode Island had the fewest horses, with 3,059, followed by the District of Columbia, reporting a fluctuating total of about 33.
The AHC says the horse industry has a direct impact of $39 billion on the U. S. economy and an overall impact of $102 billion when factoring in indirect and induced spending.
A wild video from Zambia shows the terrifying moment when an ornery hippo set about chasing after a group of tourists on a sightseeing boat. The jaw-dropping footage, which came to light this week, was reportedly captured earlier this year on the Zambezi River in the town of Livingstone. In the video, a group of what may be juvenile hippos can be seen a short distance away from the boat in what initially seems like a rather serene glimpse of the majestic creatures.
However, the scene takes a troubling turn when the camera quickly pans a few feet away where a massive hippo has emerged from the water in hot pursuit of the vessel. The aggressive animal seemingly surprised the people on board as it was initially shockingly close to the boat. Fortunately, the person driving the boat smartly slams on the gas and keeps the hippo a relatively safe distance away, although the monstrous creature continues it chase the group for several seconds before finally throwing in the towel.
