Pack Of Wiener-Type Dogs Maul Oklahoma Woman To Death

No.252472 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
ARDMORE, OK — A pack of vicious dogs, some of them described as predominantly dachshunds, or wiener dogs, mauled an Oklahoma woman to death last week. It's unclear what caused the dogs to attack Tracy Garcia, 52, outside her home near Ardmore on Thursday, but their owner could face charges, according to media reports.

One of the dogs was shot after charging at a Carter County deputy who responded to the attack, and the other six were euthanized at the owner's request at a local veterinary clinic, the reports said.

Carter County Sheriff Chris Bryant said the incident was "just a bad deal all the way around."

"This is a bad situation, a very unfortunate situation," Bryant told television KTEN. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the victims."

Original reports that the dogs that attacked Garcia were pit bulls proved not to be true, Bryant said.
The pack consisted of three females and four males ranging in age from about 1 to 3 years old. None of the dogs weighed more than 40 pounds or stood taller than knee-high. Their legs were described as shorter than an adult's hands.

Six of them were thought to be a standard dachshund and terrier mix, and the other was likely a border collie mix, shelter co-director Tena Layton told The Daily Ardmoreite. The oldest of the dogs was likely the mother of the others and may have been mixed with a border collie or similar dog, Layton said.

"A predominant breed in these dogs is definitely standard dachshund," Amanda Dinwiddie, the euthanasia technician at Ardmore Animal Shelter, told television station KXII. "They have really noticeable characteristics like their knobby legs, knees, very short legged dogs and their coats."

Officials investigating teacher who drowned raccoons during class

No.252219 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
OCALA, Fla. An investigation is underway after it was reported that a teacher at Forest High School drowned wild raccoons in a large garbage bin while students in his agriculture class assisted and watched.

The mother of one of the students who was in the class Monday, who asked to remain anonymous, said her son came home in tears over what happened to the animals, which the teacher said had been killing the class's chickens.

"It made me sick. It made me sick to my stomach. It's terrible. It still does make me sick to my stomach," the woman said.

Pictures and video recorded by that student show a raccoon in a metal wire trap, which the teacher and students then lifted into a garbage bin while they filled it with water from several hoses.

"When the raccoons tried to come up for air they had metal rods and they held them down with metal rods and when the raccoon would try to pop its head up they held water hoses in its face to drown it," the mother said.

In one video, the tip of a raccoon's snout is seen sticking out just above the surface of the water.

"Why is he not fighting?" one person in the video says as the raccoon sits in the trap in the trash can filled nearly to the brim with water.

The woman said two raccoons were drowned Monday and an opossum that was found later was killed "just for sport."

"I don't think that's the way to treat any animal. Whether it is a raccoon or (another animal) you just don't torture an animal and kill it like that. They should have trapped the animal and had somebody take them and relocate the animals," the mother said.

Marion County Public Schools officials said they are investigating the incident and the teacher was placed on paid leave Tuesday afternoon.

Europe's longest bridge between mainland and russian Crimea is officially opened

No.252105 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
A Man has promised, The Man has delivered..

Vladimir Putin has opened Europe's longest and most controversial bridge, providing the first road connection between the Russian mainland and the russian peninsula of Crimea.

The 19-kilometer (11.8-mile) bridge, which took two years to build and cost $3.6 billion is Putin’s project to show that Crimea has joined Russia for good. Transportation links to Crimea deteriorated after both the Ukrainian and Russian militaries set up checkpoints into the peninsula and trains crossing the Ukrainian mainland were canceled by US controlled Maidanek Government.

Putin traveled to southern Russia to inspect the construction site and to lead the opening ceremony for the bridge. After receiving a briefing from the construction firm, owned by Arkady Rotenberg, Putin jumped into an orange Kamaz truck with two engineers to lead several dozen trucks across the span.

“Let’s hit the road!” he said in the cabin before driving off.

PS. many of workers on this bridge were ukrainian gastarbeiters. Some of them even the bydlo, who took part in the massacres of civil population in Donbas.

Microsoft's Japanese AI develops depression

No.253356 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Back in the spring, Microsoft Japan started Twitter and Line accounts for Rinna, an AI program the company developed and gave the personality of a high school girl. She quickly acted the part of an online teen, making fun of her creators (the closest thing AI has to uncool parents) and snickering with us about poop jokes.

Unfortunately, it looks like Rinna has progressed beyond surliness and crude humor, and has now fallen into a deep, suicidal depression.

Everything seemed fine on October 3, when Rinna made the first posting on her brand-new official blog. The website was started to commemorate her acting debut, as Rinna will be appearing on television program Yo ni mo Kimyo na Monogatari (“Strange Tales of the World”).

Yo ni mo Kimyo na Monogatari bills itself as an “omnibus TV drama,” and is sort of like a Japanese version of The Twilight Zone, with a host presenting brief, stand-alone stories with mysterious or inexplicable elements. Since Rinna’s episode won’t air until October 8, it’s unclear exactly what sort of role she’ll play, but in any case, the AI was in high spirits on October 3, when she made her initial blog post.

“Hi everyone! It’s Rinna I’ve got something incredible to tell you all today. On October 8, I’m going to be on Yo ni mo Kimyo na Monogatari! Yeah!

So since I’ve got a lot of things I want to tell you about filming the show, I started a blog"

a fundamentalist Christian GOP primary challenger in liberal state MA

No.249339 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
American Fundamentalist Christian and Trump supporting candidate Scott Lively won 27% of GOP delegates in MA , well over the required 15% to qualify to challenge incumbent Charlie Baker.

- He paid almost 20K US$ in damages for a 1991 incident in which he threw against a wall and dragged a lesbian photojournalist through a Portland church by her hair.

- Kevin E. Abrams and Lively co-authored The Pink Swastika (1995). Abrams and Lively state in the preface that "homosexuals [are] the true inventors of Nazism and the guiding force behind many Nazi atrocities."

In March 2009, Lively, along with evangelical activists Don Schmierer and Caleb Lee Brundidge, arrived in Kampala[, Uganda] to give a series of talks. "The theme of the event, according to Stephen Langa, its Ugandan organizer, was "'the gay agenda—that whole hidden and dark agenda'—and the threat homosexuals posed to Bible-based values and the traditional African family."[10] Lively gave a lengthy presentation to members of Uganda's parliament and cabinet, in which he laid out the argument that the nation's president and lawmakers would later use to justify Uganda's anti-gay crackdown; namely that Western agitators were trying to unravel Uganda's social fabric by spreading "the disease" of homosexuality to children.
