      Monster truck rolls over Mounties' cruiser

      Canadian Press Monday, October 31, 2005

      HOPEWELL, N.S. (CP) -- Nova Scotia RCMP had a personal monster-truck show when a raised pickup truck with large tires led them on a chase before rolling over a cruiser on the weekend.

      Mounties had stopped to investigate the truck in when the driver suddenly took off and refused to pull over.

      Two cruisers chased the truck on some back roads before the truck rolled over one cruiser and landed in a ditch. Jeffrey Holley, 26, faces a number of charges.

        • Blue-beary Close Call?

          Muffins blamed for luring black bear to breakfast at B.C. deli

          Canadian Press October 31, 2005

          PEMBERTON, B.C. (CP) - Connie Wilson blames the fresh-baked blueberry muffins for luring a black bear to breakfast at Grimm's Deli this week.

          And now, just to be safe, she's keeping the door closed to keep away the unwanted guest, who proved to be a difficult customer to move on. Wilson opened the back door to let out the heat from the oven early Wednesday morning when the bear came calling from the back alley of the restaurant in the middle of Pemberton, a couple of hours north of Vancouver.

          She clapped and waved her arms but the animal refused to leave.

          Three other customers joined the circus, including one man who grabbed a chair to try and poke the bear out the door.

          "He was a medium-sized bear," she said. "He wasn't scared at all, he just kept coming in. . . . He didn't want to leave. I had blueberry muffins in the oven, I think that's what did it. . . It just smells wonderful in here."

          Wilson said she was scared because the bear wasn't afraid at all, but it finally did leave, without getting any muffins, or causing any damage.

          "Some of the guys finally got him to leave," she said. "It scared me pretty good, because that's my first bear encounter."

                • November 1, 2005 -- Hurricane Katrina has claimed an unusual victim — voodoo. Practitioners say New Orleans' status as the voodoo capital of America has been wiped out — so they're calling on the dead to give them a hand. "We have got to call on the ancestors for help and get real serious about it," said Brandi Kelley.

                  • November 2, 2005 -- If you start hearing a serenade in your apartment, quick, get the glue traps out. It turns out male mice sing to attract female partners, making chirping-like noises that are similar to those of birds, scientists at Washington University say. Chirping? Heck, does that mean the operatic Mighty Mouse isn't real after all?

                    • Man Kills Buck With Bare Hands in Bedroom Wed Nov 2, 6:21 PM ET



                      BENTONVILLE, Ark. - For 40 exhausting minutes, Wayne Goldsberry battled a buck with his bare hands in his daughter's bedroom.

                      ADVERTISEMENT

                      Goldsberry finally subdued the five-point whitetail deer that crashed through a bedroom window at his daughter's home Friday. When it was over, blood splattered the walls and the deer lay dead on the bedroom floor, its neck broken.

                      Goldsberry was at his daughter's home when he heard glass breaking. He went back to check on the noise and found the deer.

                      "I was standing about like this peeking around the corner when the deer came out of the bedroom," said Goldsberry. The deer ran down the hall and into the master bedroom — "jumping back and forth across the bed."

                      Goldsberry, about 6-feet-1 and 200 pounds, entered the bedroom to confront the deer and, after a brief struggle, emerged to tell his wife to call police. After returning to the bedroom, the fight continued. Goldsberry finally was able to grip the animal and twist its neck, killing it.

                      Goldsberry, sore from the struggle, dragged the dead animal out of the house.

                      "He got kicked several times. He was walking bowlegged for a while," Deputy Doug Gay said.

                      At this time of year, a buck that sees its reflection in a window often charges, believing it is fighting off a rival, Gay said.

                      Goldsberry had the deer butchered.

                      "He's in the freezer," the man said before walking to the kitchen and showing off pounds of freshly wrapped venison.

                      • November 3, 2005 -- Attending a wedding in Michigan can be hazardous to your hands. For the second time in two years, a reception guest in Shiawassee County has lost part of a finger during a fight. Most recently, Philip Michalek, 26, bit off the tip of 23-year-old Ryan Dickey's thumb, which "ended up in the suspect's mouth," said Detective Sgt. Mark Pendergraff. It could not be reattached. In August 2003, a guest at another ceremony bit off part of a man's finger, bit the thumb of the bridegroom and knocked down the bridegroom's mother.

Bob Doughtery, 57, says he got stuck to a toilet seat after a prankster smeared it with glue — and now he's suing the Boulder, Colo., store, saying employees ignored his cries for help. "They left me there, going through all that stress. They just let me rot," he fumed, adding that workers later told him they thought his cries for help were a prank.

Cops in Ferndale, Mich., said James Green was fleeing down an alley when his oversized pants fell to his ankles and tripped him. After kicking off his pants and shoes, he jumped a fence into a back yard, where he was collared.

Cops in Ferndale, Mich., said James Green was fleeing down an alley when his oversized pants fell to his ankles and tripped him. After kicking off his pants and shoes, he jumped a fence into a back yard, where he was collared.
