THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Crazy moment snake catcher releases hundreds of rat snakes, cobras and vipers into Indian forest. He rescues the snakes from people’s houses and releases them in forest: “A mind-blowing video has emerged of a man releasing a sackful of snakes in the wild and patting them away in India. The video was shot in Panchmadhi forest of Hoshangabad area near Bhopal. A snake catcher confirmed they released 285 of them inside the forest after they checked there were no people nearby. Salem Khan, employed with Bhopal civic body, said: ‘We chose to release them during the evening time as the earth is cooler during that time. He rescues around 100 to 200 snakes a month often from the properties of cabinet colleaues. ‘We need to rescue snakes because they are our friends — and not enemies. They also a good friend of farmers as they help kill rats in the fields.'”

Terrified fisherman forced to fend off a huge great white shark with a BROOM as it attacks his vessel: “An Australian man fed up with the attentions of a nosy great white shark hit the beast in the eye with a broom – before it returned to bite his boat. The man, named online only as Dan, posted the footage online yesterday along with the comment: ‘B***** thing was not shy!’ In the film the huge shark, believed to be a great white, can be seen swimming up to the boat and surfacing as if to take a look at the people on board. Attempting to drive the predator away, Dan grabs a broom from on board the boat and gives it a shove as it swims away. The poke only seems to make the shark more interested in the vessel however, and it is soon back for another look. This time, however, it seems looking is not enough – as it goes to take a bite out of one of the offboard motors”

Russia creates terrifying ‘death ray’ that can FRY enemy drones from half a mile away using microwaves: “Russian officials have unveiled a ‘microwave gun’ that can disable an unmanned drone and even a missile from up to 0.6 miles (1km) away. The first sample of the weapon has been revealed following a secretive Russian Defense Ministry exhibition. The ‘death ray’ will be used to target enemy drones and apparently deactivates the radios of UAVs and warheads, causing them to lose control. It uses ultra-high frequency impulses to immobilise aircraft electronics. Designed for the surface-to-air BUK missile system, the gun was developed by Russia’s United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC). ‘Working models of these weapons have been already developed and proved their effectiveness,’ a UIC spokesperson told Sputnik News. ‘This is a completely new type of weapon that has no equals either in this country or anywhere else in the world.'”

Rare Tudor ring unearthed by an amateur treasure hunter in York is sold for a ‘five figure sum’: “An amateur treasure hunter who discovered a precious Tudor ring has sold the ‘extraordinarily rare’ piece of jewellery for a five figure sum. Lee Rossiter found the Green Hammerton Ring in North Yorkshire, using a cheap metal detector he had bought on eBay. The 15th century ring is 80 per cent gold, and contains a ruby and an emerald. The ring, which is a double-bezel chased finger ring in the form of a flower is set with a ruby and an emerald and is engraved in Medieval French. Scans at the British Museum showed the ring was 78-80 per cent gold and confirmed the nature of the precious stones. Kieran McCarthy, director of Wartski, said: ‘We have a strong interest in medieval rings and were thrilled to have the opportunity of purchasing this one. ‘Jewels of this calibre are extraordinarily rare”

World’s longest police chase? Driver leads cops on 720-kilometre high-speed pursuit from one end of New Zealand to the other: “A high-speed car chase spanning nearly 720km has ended with police arresting a 20-year-old suspect fleeing on foot. The Subaru driver allegedly led police on three separate pursuits, after police attempted to pull him over for speeding, as he powered from one end of New Zealand’s south island to the other. Police first attempted to pull the car over at 1am near Nelson, then they failed to stop it in Christchurch and finally the driver dumped his blue Subaru and a suspect was arrested in Waikouaiti, north of Dunedin at 5pm. Police had to stop their pursuit on three occasions – during the driver’s 720km journey – due to safety reasons, NZ Stuff reported. The drawn out car chase eventually came to an end when the driver allegedly fled on foot after dumping the Subaru and a 20-year-old Nelson man was caught running away near Dunedin. A police dog and handler were involved in the arrest.
