Oh deer! Cindy Frost says ever since a doe and its fawn moved into her backyard, she hasn’t been able to leave home. In fact, she says that the animal has literally been pacing around her property. Every time Frost does gather the courage to step out the door, the deer gets aggressive and charges her. Unfortunately, Ohio wildlife officials say there is little they can do, and that encounters like these are actually quite common.
Looks like we have some new members for the mile highway club. An RCMP officer in Richmond, B.C. says he decided to pull over a vehicle this week after he saw “two people occupying the space of one.” Once the car was stopped, the officer noticed the pair was “engaged in coitus” and ticketed the driver for seat-belt violations and for driving without due care and attention. The couple was apparently very understanding.
One of our officers stopped a 🚗 w/ a couple engaged in coitus while driving. License & registration took longer than expected to produce…

What do you think: Fate or coincidence? Chinese couple Yiqin Lu and Hedong Zhang were flipping through old family photo albums to try and decide which ones they wanted to include in their wedding album when they came across one that seemed a little strange. It was an image of Zhang taken about 15 years before they met. But in the background, not even far away from where he was standing, was his future wife. After they talked more about the picture, the pair realized that they had actually taken the same bus to where the photo was taken as well.
This is giving new meaning to the term “money business”. The Kenya Electricity Generation Company says that a monkey managed to climb onto the roof of the Gitaru Power Station this week, where it fell onto a transformer. That triggered a chain reaction in the plant which resulted in a nation-wide, three hour blackout. Fortunately, power has since been fully restored and the monkey actually survived. Officials say the plant is surrounded by an electric fence, and that this shouldn’t happen again.
Talk about a dirty trick. A lawsuit involving $3,870 worth of topsoil managed to climb all the way to Nova Scotia’s Supreme Court. Homeowner Steven Belshaw had hired a landscaping company to spread dirt over his lawn. But after the job was over, Belshaw was “unsatisfied” with the quality and refused to pay, which resulted in both parties going to court. Belshaw brought a sample of dirt into the court, and the adjudicator actually visited the lawn to see it for himself. The ruling was in the landscaping company’s favour, but then was appealed. No court date has been scheduled yet.
