lol must be the heat here in Texas messing with peoples mind again...
How Texas became a hotbed for chupacabra sightings
A mysterious figure was seen lurking outside Amarillo Zoo at 1:25 a.m. on Saturday, May 2, captured by security footage.

Black and white footage shows a dog-like creature with long arms standing upright like a human in grass along the perimeter fence. As the city searches for an answer, some think it might be the mythical chupacabra.

“Was it a person with a strange hat who likes to walk at night?” the city asked. “A large coyote on its hind legs? A chupacabra? It is a mystery – for Amarillo to help solve.”

Just look to India and some of their gods.


I'm missing what you're getting at here. Are you suggesting that being familiar with conjoined twins back then led to (at least in part) the conceptualization of the images of the Hindu gods and goddesses with multiple limbs?

Sleeping walruses can stay in the "boat"
Firefighters in Kragerø, Norway were called when a walrus ended up in a leisure boat on Saturday afternoon. They got it out of the boat, but the walrus swam back.

Mr. Walrus was doing what he does best, lounging around and returned back to a spot he liked (inside the rubber raft "boat") much to the dismay of the people who wanted to use it that day.

Scientists figured out why fish fell from the sky in Texarkana, and it’s pretty gross
Two independent researchers say they may have gotten to the bottom of what caused fish to fall from the sky late last year in Texarkana: bird regurgitation.

Didn't someone decide long ago that fish in some body of water were frozen when sucked up into a weather tornado-like vortex, then they would drop to the ground when weather conditions allowed? That made it look like it was raining fish.

Yellowstone National Park is NOT a petting zoo!
Bison gores visitor at Yellowstone National Park for the second time in a month

For the second time in less than a month, a wild bison charged a group of people at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming and gored one of them, park officials said.

... "When an animal is near a campsite, trail, boardwalk, parking lot, or in a developed area, give it space."

... "The bison [respond] to the perceived threat by goring the individual," the NPS said. "Bison are unpredictable and can run three times faster than humans.

Sea lions chase away beachgoers in San Diego, viral video shows
Two sea lions showed beachgoers in San Diego that life’s a beach after the animals chased away the sunbathers in a viral video taken on Friday.

Visitors were sent scampering over the sand at La Jolla Cove when one woman got too close to one of the local sea lions.

Just when you think that things couldn't get any worse.

Trapped baby elephant and mum rescued in Thailand.

Thankfully it all ended well.

Beware: Red-Winged Blackbirds Are Back And Aggressively Defending Their Lakefront Nests
The birds — known by some as “nature’s a–holes” — nest near bodies of water, making the lakefront a prime spot for run-ins between pedestrians and the animals.

I wonder if they're related to our magpies.

Whoever said fishing was a safe "sport"?
Woman, 73, stabbed by 100-pound sailfish that leapt from water off Florida coast
The Woman was injured after the sailfish struck her in the groin area with its bill on Tuesday, according to a report from the Martin County Sheriff's Office.

The attack occurred as she was standing in a boat while her two companions tried to pull the fish in on a fishing line to take a picture.
