Walloween Tails


My granny sent me two spooooooky stories to share for Walloween. The best part? They are TRUE. Be afraid, apes, be very afraid (four legs gooooooooooood, two legs in trouble!):

1. The Dick Cheney of Dogs:

A man out hunting in Iowa was shot in the leg after a hunting dog stepped on his gun, authorities said.

The accident happened after James Harris, 37, put his gun on the ground to retrieve a fallen pheasant.

One of a pack of hunting dogs following behind stepped on the trigger, and up to 120 birdshot pellets hit Mr Harris in the left calf at short range.

2. Killer Cows in Sussex:

A Sussex policeman has been discharged from hospital after an attack by about 50 cows left him with four broken ribs and a punctured lung.

Insp Chris Poole, 50, said the cattle repeatedly butted and stamped on him when he was out walking his dog on the South Downs earlier this month.

The officer, from Brighton, said he was crossing a field along a footpath.

One cow butted him in the back, forcing him to the ground, before the others joined in, he recalled.

Look out naked apes!

I'm sure this is a terribly controversial thing to say, but I just love it when dogs shoot hunters.

But that cow attack?! That guy must have been up to something funny. Or maybe he's a total jerk and his dog didn't have a gun, so he recruited some help.

Hi, Wally
The dog in the newspaper looks happy! I wonder if he was the one who shoot the hunter.

Hey Wallys,

Firsts, glad I don't have any balls. Seconds, Cheneyism is spreadin' way too fasts and too fars. It's got to stops! Thirds, I thinks those were elfrants dressed in cow Halloweens costumes. And fourths, you are the skerdiest werewolfs I've ever seen.

Have a greats GREAT PUNKIN DARK!!!

Wuufs!

Wahahahahaha! I loved that Dick Cheney story. Mom just heard he's getting ready to go hunting this year. Now, who in their right mind would 1. Give that man a hunting license & 2. Ever step foot in the woods with him???

Sheesh!

Your Granny comes up with the bestest news stories. Maybe is hoomans took better care of their 4 legged friends they would not have to be worried about being shot or tromped. Hooman stupidity never ceases to amaze me.
My empty place where the gallbladder used to reside seems to be doing well. Thanks for all your caring.

I agree with Sophie. I always get a little tingle when a dog shoots a hunter. I reserve the right to arm bears!!!

So in other words the cop's dog took him out for a walkies to a pre-arranged destination so his cow-laborators could stomp him!?!?!? Cool!
