    A man was arrested in Oklahoma after carjacking a truck from outside an adult store in Missouri — with a man and his pet goat inside, police say. Two men stopped at an adult video store in Carthage early Wednesday, police said, according to KOTV. The driver of the pickup truck went inside the store while the passenger — and his pet goat — remained in the truck, ultimately falling asleep, the outlet reported. That’s when police say Brandon Kirby, 40, jumped into the truck and took off, allegedly taking meth as he drove the passenger through parts of Kansas,...

    The family dog of 13 years had to be put down. Her body was shutting down and nose cancer had taken its toll. She wouldn't eat and I had to carry her. I can't say enough good things about the local vets, C-Vets Emergency, and NC State K9 Oncology. They did so much for her and us during her time. RIP to the world's best GSD ever. Terra.

    People who have small dogs have been warned to keep their pets inside after a chihuahua was snatched by a seagull from its owner's back garden. Gizmo, a four-years-old chihuahua, is still missing after a bird swooped down and carried the animal away in its beak. Becca Hill, 24, of Paignton, Devon, is hoping her pet will be found alive, and has asked locals to keep a lookout for it. "My partner was in the garden putting the washing out at the time and suddenly he saw it swoop down. It carried Gizmo a fair way as we couldn't see...
  • When to Put Rover Down

    When do we put Rover down? I have always thought that when an animal becomes sick, old, diseased, and is in pain, senile or unable to manage that the kind thing to do would be to euthanize it. However, it seems that I am in the minority with that opinion. Our good dog of 15 years is now senile, is anxious and barks, has poor vision and little hearing. He barks almost constantly, cannot remember where he is or where we are. He is a sad old mess. I have been advocating putting him to sleep. Others in the family...

    Goats recognise and are attracted to happy humans, a study has found. Much like us, they seem to be drawn to smiling faces. But don’t expect to make friends with a goat if you scowl at it. Scientists showed 20 goats unfamiliar photos of the same human face looking happy or angry. ================================================================= The research, conducted at Buttercups Sanctuary for Goats in Kent, demonstrated that the goats preferred to interact with the smiling face. Released from a distance of four metres (13ft) they generally made straight for the happy image, exploring it curiously with their snouts. This suggested that goats...

    CityWatch Los Angeles ^ | april 2, 2018 | Phyllis M. Daugherty
    ANIMAL WATCH-Any dog attack is alarming, painful and can cause lasting injury -- whether it is by a Pit Bull or a Chihuahua--regardless of whether victims are merely knocked down or the animal sinks its teeth into their flesh. Plus, there are other victims in every attack--family members, witnesses, those who try to stop the attack, employers, and landlords or business owners on whose property the incident occurs. There have been two reported attacks by dogs on airlines in the past year: In June 2017, a man was mauled by an emotional support dog on a Delta Air Lines flight...

    Japan says lunar chasm measuring 50km long and 100 metres wide could be used as a base for astronauts and their equipment.Scientists have fantasised for centuries about humans colonising the moon. That day may have drawn a little closer after Japan’s space agency said it had discovered an enormous cave beneath the lunar surface that could be turned into an exploration base for astronauts. The discovery, by Japan’s Selenological and Engineering Explorer (Selene) probe, comes as several countries vie to follow the US in sending manned missions to the moon. Using a radar sounder system that can examine underground structures,...

    A Denton County couple is on a mission to bring their beloved pet back home, but Goose isn't the average house pet. He's an 8-month-old pig who recently got out of his backyard in Hickory Creek and wound up at animal control. His owners went to pick him up but say they couldn't take him home because an ordinance doesn't allow pigs in the city. The couple now plans to go before city council to request a change in the ordinance so they can bring Goose home. "We miss him, our animals miss him, our neighbors miss him. We just...

    DANVILLE, Pa – A couple who took their nearly 5-foot boa constrictor for a swim in a Pennsylvania river say the pet slipped away and they're concerned about its welfare. The Bloomsburg Press Enterprise reported Thursday that Kolby and Zachary Latranyi had been swimming with the snake named Leyla last weekend in the Susquehanna River. The Latranyis say the red-tailed boa was shedding, so the swim was designed to help it remove material from its scales.

    The new Dr. Seuss book "What Pet Should I Get?" is about two children who go to a pet store to buy a pet. That was a commonplace event back in the 1950s or early 1960s, when Dr. Seuss is believed to have written the long-lost book, but it's discouraged today. Which is why the new book comes with a remarkable addendum: A publisher's note urging children to walk on by the pet store and adopt from an animal shelter. But animal rights activist Ingrid Newkirk, the founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said it's not enough...

    Instead of leaving with the drugs and weapons they were sent to find, a Minnesota SWAT team executing a “no-knock raid” left with the bodies of a family’s two dead dogs. “The first thing I heard was ‘boom,’” Larry Lee Arman told KMSP, recalling the raid which occurred in St. Paul at 7 a.m. on Wednesday. “Bop, bop, bop, bop, bop. Right in front of us.” Equipped with a warrant for drugs and weapons, the SWAT unit barged in while Arman was asleep on a mattress with his two children, shooting Mello and Laylo, the family’s two pit bulls. “One...
