Feathered frenzy: Peacock breaks bottles inside liquor store

(AP) — A female peacock has ruffled more than just feathers at a Los Angeles-area liquor store. Without a peep, the peahen strutted into the open door of the Royal Oaks Liquor Store in Arcadia on Monday. Store manager and college senior Rani Ghanem said he didn't even know it was there until a customer walked in and asked him about "el pollo," Spanish for "the chicken.

" Ghanem, a 21-year-old San Bernardino resident whose family owns the store, said he then tried to guide the sharp-clawed bird outside but that she spooked, at one point flying directly toward him and then up onto a top shelf of the store. And that spooked Ghanem. An animal-control officer responded after Ghanem called 911, approaching the peahen with gloves and a fishing net.

One hunter from Canada knows. He doesn’t have the Academy Award to show for it like Leo DiCaprio, but he does have a shocking video. Richard Wesley was out hunting in Fire River, Ontario when he came across a black bear. His Go Pro footage shows the bear appearing in the distance, unaware of the man’s presence.

Forensic scientists caught a deer munching on a human carcass for the first time ever

Forensic scientists have to do a lot of weird things in order to solve crimes and identify bodies.

What Drove Tsavo Lions to Eat People? Century-Old Mystery Solved

During a nine-month period in 1898, the lions killed at least 35 people and as many as 135, according to different accounts. And the question of why the lions developed a taste for human flesh remained a subject of much speculation. Also known as the Tsavo lions, the pair of beasts ruled the night until they were shot and killed in December 1898 by railway engineer Col. John Henry Patterson. In the decades that followed, audiences were captivated by the story of the ferocious lions, first told in newspaper articles and books (one account was written by Patterson himself in 1907: "The Man-Eaters of Tsavo"), and later in movies.

At the time, she wondered, Could that be a coyote? Since that day 10 years ago, coyotes have firmly established themselves in New York City; they’ve been spotted everywhere from the Upper West Side to Battery Park City, from the rooftop of a Queens bar to Rikers Island, and they’re breeding in the Bronx’s parks.

Dogs and cats (and even goats) may be well-suited for home living, but when it comes to more exotic companions, not all mammals are equally eager to be your lifelong cohabitor.

The results are now published in Frontiers in Veterinary Science, as Popular Science reports. The Dutch Animals Act maintains that mammals should only be kept by non-experts if they are used for agricultural production or can be safely kept by anyone without special training.
