Man! That’s one funny looking cow!

N.D. moose

When Beverly and Ernie Fischer gathered up their cattle this fall in Morton County [North Dakota], they rounded up a little more than they expected.

“We were moving some cattle, and we got a moose,” Ernie Fischer said. “He thinks he is a cow,” said his wife.

Ernie Fischer said it was difficult to get the young bull moose away from the cattle, and workers put it in a separate corral until it could be released. The moose also broke fences on the ranch 20 miles south of Mandan.

This is the third incident this year of a moose joining a herd of cows in North Dakota.

Daughter born October 2. Not odd, you say?

Jenna and William Cotton welcomed their third child, Kayla, on October 2, which is not newsworthy on its’ own. What is newsworthy is that Kayla has two brothers, both of whom were also born on October 2…Ayden in 2003 and Logan in 2006.

In case you’re wondering what the odds are of having three children born on the same date in three different years, it works out to about 1 in 7.5 million according to Bill Notz, a statistics professor at Ohio State University.

Move over, Victoria’s Secret. You’ve been one-upped.

Gold lingerie

A Chinese jewellery store has made a set of women’s lingerie out of solid gold. It took a team of four goldsmiths four months to make the gold underwear which weighs 950 grams.

The owner of the Shenyang Cuihua Gold store, of Shenyang city, says it’s the first of its kind in China. “It’s for demonstration, not for sale,” he told the Shenyang Evening News.

However, the store says the gold bra and pants would be worth more than £13,000, if they were for sale.

Crime tip: Get a bigger truck…

Link

If you plan on stealing a whole lot of copper and nickel be sure your truck is up to it.

A career criminal in England stole 18 pallets of copper and nickel from Columbia Metals in July after breaking in to the storage warehouse, loaded them onto his truck and drove off. The only problem was that the load was too much for the suspension which broke and left the back end of the truck dragging on the pavement.

Police saw the dragging rear, stopped him, found the metal and slapped the cuffs on him.

Did I mention that as a career criminal he is well known to police?
