Roaring good pet? Roaring anyway.

lion in garden

Romanian media say a man was rearing a lion in his back garden until neighbors decided they had heard enough roaring and called police.

Rompres state news agency said police found a caged 3-year-old lioness, as well as two deer, a stag and two peacocks roaming the garden of the man’s home in the southern village of Pietrosita.

The agency’s report Wednesday said the 28-year-old man is being charged with illegal possession of wild animals and could be sentenced to up to a year in jail.

Love and noodles

It was a Black Day for love in South Korea on Monday with lonely hearts trying to ease their pain by diving head first into bowls of noodles.

South Korea celebrates Valentine’s Day, where local custom dictates women give gifts to men. It has taken on a popular event born in Japan but sweeping Asia known as White Day on March 14 when men return the favor with gifts for women.

But Black Day, on April 14, is a South Korean original. It is marked by people who have not found love dressing in dark colors and commiserating over meals of black food, with the dish of choice being Chinese-style noodles topped with a thick sauce of black bean paste.

Crime tip: Don’t give the loot to the victim for safekeeping

Three days after stealing a rare collection of coins, a thief in Germany took them to the bank for safe keeping — and delivered them into the hands of the man he had robbed.

……………………

The owner recognized the coins, called the cops and now the thief has a lot of leisure to contemplate just where things went horribly wrong.

Police say a man dressed as a woman repeatedly crashed his car into a suburban Detroit lingerie store that had refused to hire him earlier this year…Damage to the store was estimated at $3,000.

McCabe said McIntosh was wearing “facial makeup, lipstick, blue Capri pants, red ‘flip-flops,’ a flowery blouse and a matching flowery women’s bra.” McIntosh told deputies he is homeless and wanted to go to jail because he had nowhere else to go.
