Drastic threat meant no harm
A scientist told Sky News he never intended to harm cats after sending a letter to neighbours warning of ‘drastic action’ if they were not controlled.
Dr Clive Mowforth, a research chemist educated at Oxford, sent 100 leaflets to homes nearby complaining cats were ‘murdering’ birds in his garden.
According to Orange News, the letter said: “I do not see why we should have to put up with this menace.
“If you have a cat, can you please keep it under control? If we continue to be plagued by cats, drastic action will be taken.”
Dr Mowforth, who lives in Dursley in Gloucestershire, addressed the leaflets to the ‘Cat Menace’.
Paper workers shell-shocked
An appeal has gone out to find the owners of a tortoise in Devon – after it travelled nearly 300 miles in the back of a lorry to Norfolk.
Workers at a paper recycling plant in Kings Lynn were surprised to see the tortoise buried under a pile of newspapers that were just about to be pulped.
They think the animal travelled 270 miles after being picked up from a recycling depot in Silverton, Devon.
A Mid Devon Council spokesman said: “It would appear that the tortoise must have been hibernating in a black box among paper put out for recycling.
“Following its big adventure, we are happy to say that the tortoise is alive and very well and currently being cared for by one of the mill workers in King’s Lynn.”
No udder way to cross road
A stranded cow was rescued after getting stuck climbing over a crash barrier.
Motorists driving on the road were warned by signs that cattle might be crossing – but didn’t expect to see one caught halfway over.
Jason Weigner nearly drove past the stricken cow near Chochis in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, but became its saviour as he and his wife pulled over to help rescue the calf.
