Odd news from around the world
Arrested suspect starts beating himself up in back of police car so he can pin it on officers – but it is all caught on dashcam: “This is the moment an arrested fish smuggler began repeatedly punching himself in the face before bizarrely trying to claim he was attacked by the police officers who detained him. The strange incident was captured on a police car’s security camera in the city of Atyrau in western Kazakhstan. The unidentified man, believed to be around 35 years old, had been caught smuggling 210kg (463,000 lbs) of carp in his car. He could not provide any documentation for the fish and was therefore arrested by the officers who put him in the back of the police car to take him to the station. It was at this point that the images show the man in the backseat, delivering a torrent of rapid punches to both sides of his face, to the obvious shock of the policemen, who try and stop him. Following the man’s bizarre complaint about being attacked, footage from the police cameras – which captured the whole scene unfold – was forwarded to the investigation team”
Man cleaning out his aquarium disturbs a scary-looking 3ft-long bobbit worm that had been hiding in his coral for TWO YEARS: “A man could not believe his eyes when a giant bobbit worm akin to a sea monster emerged from behind a rock in his fish tank – after hiding there for two years. The ghastly creature is captured slithering its way between rocks after the man spotted it while he was cleaning the aquarium’s filthy glass. It is not clear how the 1.2metre worm found its way into the tank but it is common for such creatures to hide in the live coral sold to pet owners. Maroon coloured with small spiky tentacles along the side of a long ridged armoured body, the worm cuts a striking figure as it glides through the murky water. Bobbit worms, or Eunice aphroditois as they are scientifically known, are ambush predators who have been known to eat fish and coral. Originating off the coast of countries such as Indonesia and the Philippines, they often hide in rocks and use light and chemical receptors to lunge at their prey.”
Plague of the black beetles on beaches in Argentina: “A beetle invasion of biblical proportions has hit beaches in Argentina with millions of the black critters descending on the sands leaving experts baffled. Locals reacted with horror after seeing the swarm of the bugs crawling on the beaches in the resorts of Mar de Ajo, 31 miles away from the capital Buenos Aires, and San Bernardo. In scenes straight out of a horror film, images posted onto social media show the beaches turned black by the plague of beetles as they cover miles of coastline. One commentator who identifies himself as khnagar, said: ‘It looks like Black Maize Beetle (Heteronychus Arator), which are known for having mass flights in the summer/autumn where they mate and all that. ‘Or it’s some similar type of beetle. They only live for a few days at that stage after crawling out of the ground. So a lot of beetles flew, got swept out to sea by the winds, and then came back to the beach, most of them dead or dying”
Think you’re good at reverse parking? Watch FedEx driver expertly squeeze his truck into a tiny warehouse entrance: “Drawing envy from everyone who struggles to reverse park, this is the impressive moment a FedEx driver expertly squeezed his truck into a tiny warehouse entrance in one tip-of-the-hat manoeuvre. With little room for error, the 18-wheeler was carefully guided into the garage in New York City without hesitation. The driver certainly appeared to have plenty of experience carrying out such a manoeuvre. He completed the reverse park in around 45 seconds. The truck was filmed from above from the balcony of the building opposite. There appear to be two FedEx employees on hand to guide the driver into the warehouse, though neither has to do much to help this particular motorist.”
The boy with no fear: The amazing moment a twelve-year-old pats a King Cobra on the head like a puppy: “Footage has emerged of the incredible moment a plucky 12-year-old boy touched one of the world’s most venomous snakes on its head. Miller Wilson, from Queensland, stumbled across two deadly king cobras during his travels as he embarked on a journey to find wildlife animals in Western Bali. The fearless boy was trekking through the wild in search of the deadly species – accompanied by the Bali Reptile Rescue team – when he spotted one of the snakes coiled up inside a dirt cave. Showing no signs of fear, young Miller then proceeded to pick up the two metre reptile from its natural habitat by using a long stick to cradle the snake out into the open. In another piece of footage, Miller calmly places his hand on the cobra’s head, claiming the bold move was something he had always wanted to attempt”
