Birds in the hood! A rogue swan has recently been claiming its territory in the UK by aggressively attacking any ducks, geese or model boats that get too close to its stretch of water in Needham Lake. Eight boats, each worth $26K (CAD), have so far been destroyed by the alpha animal. The owners have become so frustrated, that they’re now calling on the Queen herself to get involved (she technically owns all the swans in the country–fun fact). It is believed that the swan is protecting its cygnets.
Step aside, peg leg. A Montreal resident was shooting video of a one-legged seagull when his attention was diverted by an even more unusual sight: a squirrel hauling a giant pita sandwich up a tree. “Dad, this bird has one leg!” one of his kids yells in the background. “Well this squirrel has a pizza in its face!” he replies. We have to admit, that was one determined squirrel.
Urine trouble now! When a manager of a Massachusetts apartment building received complaints of a strong, foul odour wafting out of a specific apartment, he went in to investigate. Once inside, he found several unmarked glass containers containing a suspicious liquid and decided to call in the authorities. Fire officials later determined that the liquid was urine–possibly mixed with other chemicals. It’s unclear what the tenant was trying to produce, but the substances were found to be harmless.
This guy isn’t letting a medical condition stop him from anything. Police in Barcelona have been pretty shocked ever since they were shown a YouTube video which appears to show man speeding down one of the city’s streets, weaving through traffic, in nothing but a wheelchair. The footage was shot by a motorist and has exploded online. But interestingly, police say there’s little they can do about it. “We’ve only seen the video on YouTube. We didn’t see it as it happened and so we haven’t been able to do anything,” a spokesperson said. Looks like this guy’s racing days aren’t over quite yet.
Let us guess, they want to make them bigger? Two of Wisconsin’s biggest sausage makers have gotten themselves tangled up in a court battle involving the shape of their packages. According to court documents, Johnsonville filed a suit against Klement Sausage after accusing the company of stealing its tray design, which follows the shape of the sausage and is curved at the ends. Needless to say, the two companies are hardening their legal defences. No court date has been set.
