Roger Mundell Jr. went into the garage in Brook­field on Sun­day morn­ing to fetch some tie-down straps for a friend when he was attacked by a bob­cat that was hid­ing in there! It then ran out of the garage and bit his 15-year-old nephew on the arms and back.  Mundell and his wife pinned the cat to the ground and shot it dead. Mundell, his nephew and his wife, are being treated for rabies. Which State Envi­ron­men­tal Police think it is likely to have given its unusual behavior.

A man in China was fed up with his son being out of work because he spent too much time with a group of friends, so he hired some hit men to kill them off – which was per­fectly legal, since they were only video game char­ac­ters. The peeved papa, iden­ti­fied only as Mr. Feng, kept pes­ter­ing his son to get a job and hit the books, but had no luck, because the kid was com­pletely obsessed with online gam­ing. Fig­ur­ing his nag­ging was doing no good; the man sought out some equally avid gamers and paid them to keep wip­ing out his son’s online alter-egos.

A Florida man took the con­cept of being a mama’s boy to a whole new level when he called his mother to give him a ride home. Zachariah Howard walked to a Thumbs-Up store in Niceville, clad in a black hoodie and over­coat, and told the clerk to hand over all the cash in the place or risk being shot – although he never showed a gun. When the worker opened the cash reg­is­ter to show that the cup­board was bare, Howard split the scene and walked to a super­mar­ket, where he used a pay phone to call his mom. He told arrest­ing offi­cers that he didn’t orig­i­nally plan to rob the store, but decided on the walk that it would be a good idea….which it wasn’t.
