    A woman was taken to a hospital after a wild encounter with a bull moose at a popular hiking spot Sunday afternoon, state wildlife officials said. The incident happened about 2:15 p.m. along the Bloods Lake Trail near the Bonanza Flat area southwest of Park City, according to Utah Division of Wildlife Resources officials. They said a family was hiking when their dogs, which were on leashes, apparently startled a bull moose that was laying down. The bull charged at the woman, causing her to fall and hit her head as it brushed past her. The woman, whose name and...

    Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. And apparently, all ages. Case in point: Bridger Walker, a 6-year-old boy who jumped in to save his 4-year-old sister from a dog attack at the cost of his own safety. The attack left him with huge bite marks and bruises. Bridger underwent two-hours of surgery and sustained more than 90 stitches, according to his family. Asked by his father why he jumped between his sister and the dog, the family quoted him as stating, “If someone had to die, I thought it should be me.”

    I would like to request prayers for my Half-Sister’s family and for mine. My Half-Sister passed away today in her nursing home. She was 63 , fourteen years older than me. Her oldest son was killed several years ago in a motorcycle accident. She is survived by her youngest son. My oldest Half-Sister passed away several years ago. My youngest Half-Sister and my “full” sister are still living. I would appreciate prayers for the entire family. Thank you so much in advance.
  • Kim Jong-un’s Sister Demands July 4 DVDs, Rejects Trump-Kim Summits in Bizarre Rant

    Kim Yo-jong, sister to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, published a poorly written “press statement” Friday praising Kim’s relationship with President Donald Trump, rejecting further summits between them, and requesting DVD copies of Fourth of July celebration footage. Kim Yo-jong’s statement appeared to be a response to speculation triggered by leftist South Korean President Moon Jae-in that Trump and her brother may soon host another summit to ease tensions between the two countries, which have technically been at war for 70 years. During the course of publicizing his book against Trump, former National Security Advisor John Bolton also hinted at...

    SHAWANO, WI – A Shawano Downtown business recently had an unexpected visitor. A deer ended up inside a Main Street business last week. It may sound like the start of a bad joke, but for awhile, it was no laughing matter. Duane Schultz owns Kim’s Discount store on Main Street. He says Thursday was a day that he will never forget. A customer just walked out the door and he said a few minutes later he heard a crash. “A deer came into the door and it stopped at the table and looked at me,” he said. “All I could...

    My uncle got angry this morning on the phone. Said more police officers should be yelled at regarding Coronavirus enforcement and because they are not protecting and serving their communities. He says people should listen to BLM. I think he is off his rockers, but is he right about a big police-civilian disconnect?

    An Atlanta police officer has been relieved of her duties after investigators said she attacked a fellow officer and tried to run them over with her car.

    Flubros day 5! It’s just the flu, bro. Starting this thread earlier in the day today so that East Coasters can see it more easily. How do you become a flubro (or flubra) and join the caucus? Easy - all you have to do is correctly recognize that Wuhan Chinese flu is not really that dangerous compared to an ordinary flu and the government/media/health care industrial complexes are overblowing things. Swine flu killed 12k in one year a decade ago in the USA and hardly anything got shut down. The economic consequences of this overreach will kill more than this...

    Lost to the outside world for a generation—and feared extinct—a small deer-like species with tiny fangs has been photographed tiptoeing through a dry lowland forest in southern Vietnam... The silver-backed chevrotain, also known as the Vietnamese mouse-deer, is about the size of a large rabbit, with a silver sheen on its rump. The creatures have tusk-like incisors, visible in the new photographs of the animals. Because chevrotains lack horns or antlers, and the fangs are especially long in males, scientists think the males use them to compete for territory and mates.

    SUDBURY -- A pair of "spirit moose" has once again been spotted along a northern Ontario highway, as the elusive animals returned to the same area where they captured national attention late last year. Sightings of the pair of white moose have been reported online over the last two weeks, showing the cow (female moose) and a calf grazing along the side of Highway 101.

    Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Authorities in Wyoming said they had to use a Taser to subdue a moose so they could disentangle its antlers from a resident's hammock. The Sublette County Sheriff's Office said deputies and Wyoming Game and Fish personnel responded to a residence this week where a bull moose was reported to be caught in a hammock hanging from a tree. "Due to the nature of the entangled animal and the proximity to hunting season, a tranquilizer would render the animal not harvestable and inedible," the sheriff's office said. The deputies used a Taser to subdue the moose...

  • Why Does the Federal Government Have 1.4 Billion Pounds of American Cheese Stockpiled?

    Rather than reduce dairy subsidies, the USDA has been paying to have surplus milk made into cheese. In the 1930s, the U.S. federal government established dairy subsidies to bail out America’s dairy farmers from the Great Depression. Managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, those same subsidies are still in effect today, where they have underwritten a massive surplus of milk in the U.S. dairy industry that far exceeds the appetites of over 327 million Americans to consume it. But rather than reduce the subsidies to reduce the surplus to more reasonable levels, the USDA is instead paying the U.S....
