THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

‘The saddest eyes I ever seen’: The trapped dog who was rescued from devastating Louisiana floods moments before she would have drowned: “A Good Samaritan helping rescue people in the deadly flooding of Louisiana is earning praise for rescuing a dog just in the nick of time from drowning. Josh Pettit wrote on Facebook that he was in his boat skimming over several feet of water on Monday after flash flooding when he spotted a ‘bush shaking’ and looked over and all he saw was a gray muzzle and a pair of frightened eyes staring up at him, the rest of the dog submerged underneath the muddy waters. ‘The dog could barely tread water anymore she was so worn out and had the saddest eyes I ever seen so scared for her life! We saved her and she came laid her head on my lap and cried and moaned like a big baby! She was thanking me. I thank God for letting me notice her,’ Pettit posted”

There was more trouble Tuesday for the man who flies with a monkey: “Ellis flew from Ohio to Las Vegas on Aug. 9 and landed in the news when Ellis was unable to produce proper paperwork during the flight for the undeclared monkey a flight attendant spotted peeking out of Ellis’ shirt. The “misunderstanding” was worked out with police officers that met the plane when it landed in Las Vegas. But when Ellis tried to fly back to Ohio’s John Glenn Columbus International Airport on Tuesday, he was denied boarding because he is now on Frontier’s no-fly list. Ellis flew back to Ohio on Southwest Airlines instead, reports KSNV.Frontier spokesman Jim Faulkner said the carrier refunded the return portion of Ellis’ ticket and explained that Ellis was placed on Frontier’s no-fly list after the first leg of his trip “because he did not follow proper procedures concerning traveling with a therapeutic or emotional support animal.”

Never eat bananas for breakfast: “IF IT’S one of those days where you’re grabbing breakfast on the go, a banana sounds like the perfect option. It’s healthy, nutritious and will give us an often much-needed morning energy boost. But according to a nutritionist, surprisingly the yellow fruit alone is one of the worst breakfast items we can have, reports The Sun. Despite being chock-full of potassium, fibre and magnesium, bananas aren’t a great option for the first meal of the day. The reason? They are made up of a whopping 25 per cent natural sugar, which will deliver a sugar rush leading to a crash a few hours on. Unless it’s paired with another “healthy fat” food, they’ll only temporarily fill you up and leave you feeling sleepy and sluggish later. They’re also not great for helping you maintain a healthy digestive system.”

Holidaymakers left baffled after stumbling on orbs which are washing up on beaches in Britain: “Holidaymakers searching for seashells have been left baffled by clusters of ‘alien’ orbs that have washed up on Britain’s beaches. Hundreds of the strange spheres have been spotted by families enjoying strolls along the shorelines of Devon and Cornwall. Concerned parents are keeping their children away from the orbs, fearing they could be poisonous. Dog walker Jess Arnieson, 27, who is on holiday with her family in Penzance from Newbury, Berkshire, said: ‘No-one knows what they are but everyone is worried. The mother-of-one was taking two-year-old Labrador, Rupert, along the beach when she stumbled across the spheres. She said: ‘There were hundreds of them stretching away as far as you could see along the shoreline – it was quite incredible. ‘The ones I saw were a bit smaller than a football but it’s possible there were some that were bigger…I didn’t want to go any farther along the beach.’

‘P*** off, you’re no’ getting anything’: Five-foot great-grandmother, 66, used an iron bar to fend off robber: “A brave great-grandmother used an iron bar to fend off a robber who was trying to raid the bookmakers where she worked and told him: ‘P*** off, you’re no’ getting anything.’ Mary Buchan, 66, stood up to Michael McLean, a six-foot tall thug who had previously raided a nearby bookies armed with a shovel. But her actions prevented McLean from taking anything from William King and Sons bookmaker in Glasgow, Scotland. Ms Buchan, who is just 5ft tall, said: ‘I was in the shop myself, it was night time. ‘He said I am in here to get your money so I never answered him. ‘My reaction was “p*** off ’cause I am no’ giving you anything”.’ He didn’t bargain on coming face to face with Mary, who is from Castlemilk. [A rough area]. On Tuesday, McLean was jailed for five years at the High Court of Glasgow. The court heard McLean was identified from CCTV footage in the bookies”
