One Tennessee man had his feline friends frozen in time, literally, and he's fighting mad police came and took them away.
When cops seized William Davis' 114 frosty felines and a dog named Snowy he had been storing in his household freezers, he was fuming.
Davis claims the cold carcasses had 'emotional value' and he had been keeping them 'on ice' for later use in a pet cemetery he was building, reported The Smoking Gun.
After police seized and destroyed the animals' remains, Davis decided to sue the Murfreesboro Police Department for $1.5 million.
According to the 75-year old Davis, police raided his home twice in 2003 and took the frozen animals, along with 46 cats, one dog, and some 'wild game meat.'
Davis also claimed he was keeping one of the cat carcasses because it was abnormally large at birth and he wanted to submit it to the Guinness Book of World Records.
The initial searches of Davis' home resulted in animal cruelty charges being levied against him, and he pled guilty to one count and was given a year of probation.
David claims he was caused 'emotional pain and suffering' after his furry friends were removed.
Talk About Beating a Loooooong-Dead Horse
WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) — You might say it's beating a dead horse ... but a Sheboygan newspaper's attempt to explain an 1870s photo is stirring lots of reaction.
The photo shows a man in a stovepipe hat apparently sitting on a dead horse in the middle of a dusty, deserted Sheboygan street.
The black-and-white photo was taken between 1876 and 1884.
The Sheboygan Press used it in a calendar for this year ... and now the picture is creating a mini-sensation, fueled by the Internet. Calls and e-mails have been coming in from around the nation with people speculating, joking and wondering about the picture.
Local historians say no one knows who the man is or the circumstances surrounding the picture.
The city once had laws requiring people to stay with their dead horses until they were picked up and disposed of.
But nobody knows why that would become a photo subject ... or whether someone thought it would be funny to have someone go sit on the horse for the picture.
He Fell Right Into the Lap of Justice
MOULTRIE, Georgia (AP) — A search for an elusive criminal came to an unexpected end when the man crashed through a ceiling from his attic refuge and landed near police who had come to arrest him, officials said.
"Normally you have to crawl up there and root them out," said Capt. Tommy Rabon, head of the Moultrie Police Department's Criminal Investigations Division. "But he came out on his own — the hard way."
Officers had gone to a home Wednesday to arrest Danny Butts, 21, for a probation violation. They became suspicious when the brightly lit interior suddenly went dark.
An occupant said Butts was not there, but officers spotted debris below an attic entrance. While they continued to question the woman, Butts fell through the ceiling onto a bedroom floor.
And the Pants Go Marching On...
BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Police say the pants bandit may have struck again in Boynton Beach.
A woman was robbed early Thursday morning, becoming at least the fourth person robbed at gunpoint for pants in three months.
Police are investigating to see if the cases are related.
In the last three months, authorities say one man begged for his life and another victim was shot after thieves pulled up in a car and demanded their pants. The victim survived the shooting.
The police report says a passenger said he "liked these pants" and then took them.
Not Exactly the Catch of the Day
CUSHING, Maine (AP) — A fisherman pulled up what appears to be the tusk of a wooly mammoth from Georges Bank off the Maine coast.
The Maine State Museum is examining the dark, curved and pointed specimen, which was dredged up in a load of shells by Massachusetts-based scallop dragger Celtic.
Fisherman Tim Winchenbach of Cushing brought the piece home to his wife Michelle, who began researching to see if it could be from a wooly mammoth.
Remains of the extinct breed of elephant, which had a covering of long hair, have been found in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia.
