Most people would feel incredibly sad if their cat was run over and killed, and eventually they might consider adopting another kitty. Dutch artist Bart Jansen mourned his departed feline, Orville, a different way: by stuffing the cat and turning him into a radio-controlled helicopter. Jansen calls his disturbing tribute the “Orvillecopter,” Jansen said Orville will be “flying with the birds” — creatures that always held his interest, just like any other cat worth their whiskers — after he’s fitted with more powerful engines and larger props for his “birthday.”

Imagine a beautiful Sunday afternoon, you’re in the woods and soaking up the rays in a hot tub.  All of a sudden you get swatted in the back of the head by a bear!  That’s what happened to a 55-year-old Coquitlam man. When he turned around and saw what had just hit him, he yelled at the animal and made his way into the house to call police. Police found the bear about 100 yards away in the forest and shot it. The man was treated for cuts on his head.

 A Chicago kid who was shooting for boyfriend of the year status was busted after carjacking a man at gunpoint in order to get a brand-new SUV to take his girlfriend to her prom. Lorenzo Bracey was arrested in his finest prom duds — a white tux and matching sneakers — after his victim spotted him driving the vehicle in the parking lot of a McDonalds, where he was apparently planning a classy pre-dance meal. Bracey was charged with multiple felonies and, according to his date, is in hot water for “ruining her prom.”
