        But wait. It gets better.

        In a macabre twist, cops in Rockingham County said the deer — a large buck — was hooked up to an intravenous feed, with a recently used defibrillator lying by its chest. Leon Hollimon Jr., 37, is now under psychiatric care — and not a minute to soon.

        • October 1, 2005 -- A 200-pound wild pet pig in Boulder Creek, Calif., has been preventing local lawmen from evicting its owner. Every time sheriff's deputies try to evict Christian Canabou, he flees into the woods and his porky pal, Kate, keeps them at bay. "On past occasions it has chased deputies around and chewed up part of a patrol car," said Sgt. Fred Plageman.

          • October 2, 2005 -- Cops who went to a Manning, S.C., home on a tip found a pile of clothes topped by a teddy bear in a closet. One officer picked up the bear, which seemed unusually warm. The cops picked through the clothes pile and found Gregory Mouzon, who was wanted for armed robbery and carjacking. He stuck up his head said, "Hello," addressing the officer by name. No word on whether he was sucking his thumb.

            • October 3, 2005 -- Attention, lap-dance fans: Stay out of Seattle!

              Starting today, gyrating strippers who get too close to their patrons could be prosecuted as the city begins enforcing new cabaret laws. But enforcement could be tough. "How do you know there's no touching unless you're one of the participants? . . . It's dark in there," said city official Mel McDonald.

              He didn't say how he knows that.

              • October 4, 2005 -- A Russian father with a rare disorder in which his body easily overheats was dumped by his family after he moved them to Siberia and turned their house into an icebox. Vitaly Matyukhin of Arkhangelsk refrigerated the family home after doctors told him he suffered from "heat exchange disorder" and risked heat stroke in temperatures over 41 degrees. But his wife, Olga, and their son walked out, saying they couldn't take the cold.

                      • October 5, 2005 -- A doctor convinced an Oregon woman he could cure her lower-back pain by having sex with her. And now, Dr. Randall Smith has paid the price. He's been stripped of his license and was jailed for 60 days — not for the sex, but for charging a state health plan $5,000 for the 45-minute "treatments" at his Gresham office.

                          • October 6, 2005 -- A naked man trying to burglarize a house in Arizona stopped in mid-escape to ask the homeowner a simple question: Do you have an extra pair of boxers? The victim threw a pair of his shorts to the crook, who fled next door and tried to steal a car. When cops in Cottonwood slapped the cuffs on George Kopsaftis, he was still dressed in nothing but his borrowed underpants.
