Cops in New Mexico are looking into the delivery of an unusually high-caliber parcel of meat. The meat, which appears to have been packaged and frozen more than a year ago, originated at a plant in Colorado and was delivered to a supermarket last week. When an employee tore into the case to ready the ribs for sale, he found a semi-automatic tucked inside the frozen meat and quickly called cops – but not before accidentally wiping off whatever fingerprints might have been on the thing. A police spokesman says “You hear of people finding frogs in their salad or weird stuff like that, but never heard of this one.”
Zoo Education Coordinator Liz Schmidt said she was teaching about reindeer to preschool children and their parents at Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse when she received a call about someone, in labor approximately 500 yards away near the bear exhibit, the Syracuse (N.Y.) Post-Standard reported. Turns out it was lady going into labour on a wildlife exhibit path! The woman was taken by ambulance to the hospital, the newspaper reported. Zoo Director Ted Fox said the zoo intends to send a baby gift to the family. “I’m sure it will be animal related,” he said.
A Dallas-area man called 911 to report that another man had pulled a gun on him, but cops weren’t terribly sympathetic – since the caller had rung them while he was trying to rob the guy with the weapon. Christopher Lance Moore had broken into the man’s house and began ransacking the place when the homeowner and his stepson woke up and walked in the scene, guns in hand. Moore tried to calmly excuse himself, and made it as far as his truck, which was parked in the driveway, but James Gerow ordered the younger man to shoot Moore if he tried to flee … but “shoot him in the leg; you ain’t gotta kill him. “Both sides then dialed the emergency number and summoned cops, who arrived and asked Moore what he was doing in the home, to which he only replied that he had “bad intentions.”
