Thief gets wuff justice
A burglar was arrested – after police heard his pet chihuahua growling!
Police in San Antonio, Texas, say the 42-year-old man decided to take his pet with him when he
broke into a restaurant.
The restaurant's surveillance video captured the break-in in the early hours of the morning, Ksat.com reports.
Staff could not believe their eyes when they saw the man force open a door and then break open the jukebox for change –followed by the chihuahua!
“It’s actually really funny, because you’ve never seen somebody break into a restaurant with a little dog following them,” said Adriana Ortega, whose sister owns the restaurant.
Police arrived at the scene while the raid was still in progress and the intruder and his dog fled empty-handed and tried to hide in nearby bushes.
But the chihuahua started growling at police officers, who quickly located the unlikely pair and took the suspect into custody.
I spider with my little eye…
A giant spider has been caught on CCTV camera apparently terrifying motorists on the M3 in Hampshire.
The oversized eight-legged creature was filmed ‘scuttling’ across junction 6 of the motorway.
Thankfully for passing drivers, it was actually a trick of the eye caused by a normal-sized spider sitting on the camera lens, according to a report on the Orange News website.
It was spotted by Road Management System for Europe staff from Hampshire County Council, who tweeted the picture, which quickly went viral.
“Apart from a giant spider terrorising motorists passing by #M3 J6, #Hampshire’s roads are now quiet & incident free,” they tweeted.
A 28-stone tiger has gone under the knife in Florida to remove a 4lb hairball, orangenews.com reports.
Veterinary surgeons in Tampa Bay were called in after Ty failed to bring up the hairball himself. Understandably, the 17-year-old big cat had been off his food for nearly two weeks.
The vets initially performed an ultrasound and took X-rays before using a endoscope with a camera to gauge the size of the hairball. But it was so big, they decided an operation would be needed.
Ty is cared for by Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation in Seminole.
“He’s sort of like my biggest baby,” founder Vernon Yates told News 13. “This is my kid. This tiger means more to me than any cat that I have.”
