Odd news from around the world
An ‘out of control’ Chihuahua is facing a death sentence after it allegedly savaged a woman: “The eight-inch long dog, called Chelsea, is said to have leapt up to bite Andrea McGann in a home in Twickenham, southwest London. Owner Aaron Fox, 27, was unable to stop his pet from tearing through the house and assaulting Ms McGann on March 29 last year, a court heard. Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court heard Chelsea has been taken into custody and faces a potential destruction order after Fox was charged with being a person in charge of a dog ‘dangerously out of control and causing injury’. Fox denied the charge and lodged an application to stop the trial, claiming the Dangerous Dog Act does not cover incidents on private property. The Act was amended in 2014 to make it an offence for a dog to be dangerously out of control in any place, including private property. Chihuahuas are the smallest breed of dog in the world and are known to be fiercely loyal and easily-provoked. They are thought to have originated in Mexico and can live between 10-18 years.
British nursery tries to send Pakistani boy aged FOUR on a ‘deradicalisation’ programme after he drew a picture of a large knife chopping a cucumber: “A nursery tried to send a four-year-old boy on a deradicalisation programme because staff thought he mispronounced ‘cucumber’ like ‘cooker bomb’, it has been claimed. Workers at the young boy’s nursery in Luton apparently issued a warning about his behaviour after he drew a picture of a man with a large knife chopping the vegetable. Their comments were sent to a panel, which included social services members, after they became concerned in November last year. The panel decided no further action should be taken. Staff are said to have suggested the young boy should take part in de-radicalisation programme Channel, which supports those who officials believe may be drawn into terrorism.”
Meet the busty Russian weather girl sending temperatures soaring: “A Russian weather forecaster, who spent half million Russian roubles on a boob job, has hit back at ‘haters’ who have accused her of dressing like a porn star on television. Larisa Sladkova has taken the internet by storm with her racy weather forecasts and says the controversy over her looks is nothing, insisting she is ‘perfectly natural.’ Viewers have described her appearance as looking like an alien, a transvestite and a bimbo. The 43-year-old ex-Casino manager who has also worked as a costume designer, sent temperatures soaring when she began appearing on Russia’s STS TV Channel in the city of Chelyabinsk. Her flirtatious delivery, mini-skirts and skimpy tops have seen videos of her posted online go viral. She admitted that although her 3-ft-long hair is natural, she had had her breasts enlarged”
A tiny orphaned joey follows the policeman who adopted it around the office: “An orphaned joey which was adopted this week by a police officer has been named Cuejo – and the pair are getting along like father and son already. Adorable footage shows the four-month-old joey using Constable Scott Mason’s shirt as a pouch and following him around Cue Police Station, in Western Australia. The officer is set to have his hands full over the coming months because he has taken the joey in just after his wife gave birth to their first child. ‘Because it needs to be fed every three hours, it’s going to be my little child basically as my wife’s in Perth with our newborn,’ Const Mason said. Cuejo was pulled from the pouch of its mother after she was hit and killed by a truck on Wednesday morning. Fears were held for the joey’s survival, but the officer stepped in and volunteered to nurse the animal back to health”
‘Criminally handsome’ felon Jeremy Meeks has been deluged with modeling offers since being freed – but he can’t take any because they would violate parole rules: “He is the convicted felon whose ‘criminally handsome’ mugshot went viral after it was released by a California police department last year – and now 32-year-old Jeremy Meeks is set to trade hobnobbing with crooks for brushing shoulders with royalty. Meeks, a married father-of-three, was released from jail at 9am on Tuesday morning and is currently in a transitional home where he is adjusting to life on the outside and his new-found fame. Now his close friend and agent, fashion photographer Jim Jordan, has revealed that the former felon is being deluged with offers from all over the world. He also said that the ‘humble’ Meeks is nothing like the hard man image conveyed by his life of crime and gang tattoos, and is instead a ‘soft-spoken family man’ who has been left totally overwhelmed by all the attention.”
