One horse town?

Ananova
Bulgarian police have confiscated a horse after it was used to transport stolen wood.

Rushud Saliev, 42, from the town of Karnobat, says his wife has left him over the incident.

Police said the legislation was normally applied to vehicles used to commit a crime but argued at court that the one horse power cart used by Saliev also came under the same rules, and the court agreed.

……………………

He wants his wife back but she won’t take him back without the horse. Package deal, I guess.

Just the other day he used his lips and feet to play a game on the touch-screen monitor as his mom, Madu, swung from vines and climbed trees. The two Sumatran orangutans at Zoo Atlanta are playing computer games while researchers study the cognitive skills of the orange and brown primates.

The best part? Zoo visitors get to watch their every move. The orangutans use a touch screen built into a tree-like structure that blend in with their zoo habitat. Visitors watch from a video monitor in front of the exhibit.
