Officials in Pennsylvania have a prognosticating furball in the crosshairs
He’s a little short, really furry – and can give you a nasty bite…even though he’s really very cute. And in case you missed it, Pennsylvania authorities have a bone to pick with Punxsutawney [[PUNK-suh-tawny]] Phil – as the critter is wanted by the Monroe County Sheriff's Office in eastern Pennsylvania.
Phil, America's top weather predicting groundhog, has a warrant out for his arrest after incorrectly predicting that winter would last six more weeks. The six-week deadline has passed and the sheriff's office has had enough. Last week, the sheriff's office said it's, "seeking the apprehension of Punxsutawney Phil for deception.
As you might recall, back on February 2nd, Phil promised that there would be just six more weeks of winter…and that promise expired on March 16th. The groundhog's wanted poster is on the wall of shame in the sheriff's office, along with other suspects.
Bunnies are the third most abandoned pet, behind cats and dogs.
Easter is less than a week away, so kids are getting ready for egg hunts and coloring eggs and all that candy their baskets will be filled with. But some parents like to go all out on holidays and those who are a little extra might even want to get their kiddos a pet rabbit, like a real Easter bunny.
Sure, they’re cute and all, but before you go get your little ones a live animal for Easter, know that the stats are NOT in your favor here. It turns out, 80% of bunnies purchased as Easter presents are abandoned. And according to the Humane Society, rabbits are the third most abandoned pet, after cats and dogs, because people like to give them as Easter presents.
So as much as you want to be the hero of the holiday, just stick to jelly beans, Peeps, and other Easter goodies that aren’t exotic pets that require a lifetime of care. But if you do decide to go with the live Easter bunny, do your research first. Make sure you know how to care for this animal before you add it to your family. You don’t want to have to try to find Peter Cottontail a new home, or worse. And kids love candy, anyway.
Man wins jackpot...after telling his wife he wouldn't buy anymore lottery tickets.
A broken promise has led one Virginia man to newfound riches. In case you missed it, Oliver Davis Jr. broke a promise to his wife that he wouldn't be buying anymore lottery tickets.
Thing is? Breaking that vow ultimately earned him a four-million-dollar jackpot. “I broke a promise,: says Davis. “But I think she’ll forgive me this time.” Davis took the cash payout of just over two-point-six-million bucks.
He has no plans for what he's going to spend the funds on yet, but may we suggest a vacation with the wife?
