This will make you squirm

Terrified householders had to abandon an entire town after 3,000 illegally bred king cobra eggs hatched out and gave their owner the slip.

The eggs – bred to supply the traditional health industry – had been stored in a cage in a house in Xianling, south west China.

But the newly hatched snakes escaped through a hole in their enclosure and took over the entire town.

A food processing plant in Texas has been shut down after contaminated celery was linked to the deaths of four people.

The victims all died from listeriosis food poisoning after eating chopped celery from the factory in San Antonio.

The rare bacterial infection is particularly dangerous for newborn babies, pregnant women and the elderly.

It can be caused by not washing or cooking raw vegetables properly.

Crime tip: When forging court documents be sure to spell the judge’s name correctly

A prison inmate who forged some court documents to gain custody of a boy and his trust fund probably should have at least spelled the judge’s name correctly.

Kristine Flynn, 52, pleaded guilty Friday to three counts of trying to impersonate a Fond du Lac County circuit judge. With a habitual criminal enhancer, Flynn faces up to 22 1/2 years in prison at her sentencing next month.
