    Miller tried to remove the woman's shorts but she reportedly kicked him in the groin. Miller then forced himself on top of her and tried to kiss her, forcing his tongue in her mouth, the report states. The victim retaliated, and "bit his tongue as hard as she could until she heard it snap," she told police. That led to Miller moving away, screaming, she added. The woman said Miller's tongue was still in her mouth, so she ran from her home and threw it on the kitchen floor. She made it to her car and drove until she found...

    Heavy snows in parts of Alaska are taking a deadly toll on moose as deep snowdrifts force the animals into hazardous detours on plowed roads and railroad tracks, prompting one group to seek declaration of a “moose emergency.” State and local officials said the ambling animals are being killed in increasing numbers in rail and road collisions. In the Matanuska-Susitna Borough north of Anchorage, 315 moose have been killed in vehicle so far this winter, said Tim Peltier, a biologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. The average is roughly 270 for the winter, he said. The state-owned...

    THE mass attack by seabirds on a coastal town that inspired Alfred Hitchcock's thriller The Birds may finally have been explained. Biologists have blamed toxic algae eaten by the birds for damaging their brains and making them so aggressive that they dived at people, buildings and moving cars in Capitola, California, in 1961. Hitchcock's film, released two years later, was inspired partly by the event and partly by a short story by Daphne du Maurier about an unexplained avian attack on a Cornish farm worker and his family. In the Californian incident, hundreds of normally unaggressive sooty shearwater gulls suddenly,...

    Dogs in Texas are presumed safe until proven dangerous. But maybe not for long. Under a bill that got unanimous approval in the state House on Tuesday, dog owners could be sent to jail for up to 20 years after a first-time mauling, representing a sea change in canine jurisprudence. Prosecutors in Texas operate under the "first bite is free" principle: Until a dog is proven dangerous as determined by a documented attack or an official court order, their owners generally can't be held criminally liable. House Bill 1355 would establish felony penalties for the owners of dogs that seriously...

    A 44 year old man was bitten by a snake Monday afternoon while shopping at the Wal Mart in Marana. The Northwest Fire Department says the man was in the garden department at about 3:30 p.m. reaching for a bag of lava rock.

    A routine flight to tag a cow moose took a bizarre turn this weekend when the tranquilized animal charged the tail section of a hovering helicopter, collided with the rear rotor and brought down the aircraft. The injured animal was euthanized at the scene. The incident happened near the southeast town of Gustavus late Saturday afternoon, and baffled officials with the Federal Aviation Administration and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. "I have never personally seen or heard of an injury of this type, caused to an animal by an aircraft," said Doug Larsen, regional supervisor for the Division...

    We picked up a new cat from the animal shelter a month ago. After being nuetered, he got sick. After he got better, he likes to attack our hands, feet, and legs. I looked up some of the reasons why kittens do this and one site (linked here) gave some excellent ideas on helping us through the kitty crazies. I am hoping there are some FReepers with some helpful hints on our cat. We really like him, he is very playful and a beautiful cream colored tabby. We could really use some help in redirecting his pouncing away from us...

    MILAN, N.H. - It was a tempting green hedgerow for the hungry young moose. Somehow, a child's swingset got in the way. The moose, who was trying to snack on a backyard hedge Thursday, got tangled in the swingset's chains. The homeowner called police for help. Lt. Jean LeBlanc decided he needed backup, so he called Don Valliere, maintenance man for the Berlin Police, and asked him to bring a pair of bolt cutters. It was up to Valliere, 54, to free the moose. Photos snapped by LeBlanc show Valliere balanced on a beam of the swingset, snipping the chains...

    A special court hearing is to be held to establish why a man bit off a chunk of another man's nose during a fight. Richard Crook, 26, from Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset, pleaded guilty to causing David Nash grievous bodily harm in the incident in Cockermouth, Cumbria. A Carlisle Crown Court judge will now consider Crook's claims he acted in "excessive self-defence". His brother, Leigh, 27, from Highbridge, Somerset, was found not guilty of the same charge. So-called Newton hearings are held when a defendant has pleaded guilty but the facts of his or her mitigation are disputed. Richard Crook, who admitted...
