These pictures were taken in the Northeast section of the United States in an extremely rural area. As shown, there is a whitetail doe stuck on top of a power pole. She had apparently been up there for a moderate amount of time. I've heard broad speculation regarding the explanation for this, but no one is certain. If you notice the back hooves are clipped (almost uniformly).
There is a train track several yards away and there is a possibility that the deer was struck and tossed into the air, thus landing on the pole. However, the deer would have to have traveled in the air approximately 45 feet (across) to the pole and reach a height of approximately 22 feet (up) to reach the top of the pole. These pictures are somewhat reminiscent of the "Deer in the Tree" story that you guys recently highlighted in the Hot Stories section of the website.
(Linda Moulton Howe's report)
The cow was wandering along a road in Giron when was hit by a woman on a motorcycle.
The woman was not badly hurt but police decided the cow was a danger and 'arrested' it.
Officers were unable to find out who owns the cow and are keeping it in the town's prison.
A police spokesman said: "If it was a person who caused the accident, he or she would be behind bars, so why not a cow?"
This is not a joke- they can be at your apartment within 24 hours!
A PILOT flew this plane for TWO HOURS before realising nearly half of a wing had been ripped away just after take-off.Link
Amazingly, he managed to land safely, despite the 5ft 7in chunk and a fuel tank being missing.
The flyer told investigators he thought the five-seater Cessna 210 had been “hit by a little bird”. But it was believed that he probably clipped treetops after leaving the runway.
