Hey, Dummy! If you bite a dog it’s likely to bite back.

That was the sequence when Alsatian police dog Edge cornered two suspects on a cliff side after a grocery store robbery in Napier, New Zealand, police said on Thursday. One of the suspects leaped down the slope and landed almost directly into the hands of police officers waiting at the bottom. The other suspect, who was armed with a knife took on Edge, and bit the dog in the struggle.

“He bit the dog first,” Detective Sergeant John McGregor told The Associated Press. Edge was unfazed, sinking his teeth into his attacker.

“The dog did win the fight, the offender ended up with one or two lacerations,” McGregor said. “I think he knew he was going to get bitten — so he bit the dog first.”

Among the pair of gloves and bag of injecting needles that owner Sam Jarrett found when the criminals had gone, she discovered one of the inept pair had left behind a picture of himself, complete with his home address

“Twas the smile on the face of the crocodile…”

Reuters via Yahoo! News
i_crocodile.jpg It’s a love story with difference – the friendship between a Costa Rican fisherman and a four-and-a-half metre (15 feet) long crocodile. Every Sunday, Gilberto Shedden dons a tattered pair of leopard-print shorts, dives into a lake and splashes about in the water with his crocodile Pocho, to gasps from a large crowd of locals and tourists.

Shedden, 50, rolls the crocodile onto his back, cavorts about with him, lifts his toothy head out of the water and even kisses him tenderly on the snout…

But for Shedden, his exploits with Pocho are more than just a show. They demonstrate the friendship he has struck up with the crocodile, a reptile with a fierce reputation.

Police officers had left the vehicle in the car park with the engine running, while they investigated a report that a stolen card had been used at the post office, the Mainichi newspaper said on Tuesday.

“I came out shopping by train, but I got tired walking, so I thought I would drive the police car home,” the man told police.

He was apprehended about 15 minutes later in the driveway of a private home, about 4 kms (2.5 miles) from the post office, the Mainichi said
