Horse Loves Super Gulp
OAK BARREL, Kentucky- Warnings have been out there for years about the preponderance of sugar laden sodas and sports drinks in the American diet. Now, sugar and the American equine diet is the issue for at least horse breeder. Col. Scott Farrell knows where American Fantastic, his latest champion-line foal, learned to love sugar, "These stable hands, they bring these big gulp drinks, buckets of sugar water they are, to work and they thought it was funny when A.F. (American Fantastic) drank through the straw and finished them off in a seconds. Now we can't keep A.F. off the hummingbird feeder and he doesn't want to run anymore. Sugar is just bad."
Thai Elephant Kills Keeper, Runs Off With Three Chinese Tourists On Its Back
MAE WANG, Thailand- An elephant in northern Thailand went berserk Wednesday, killing his "mahout" keeper before running off into the jungle with three terrified Chinese tourists on his back. "The tourists are safe," a police commander told reporters. "But they did not look like they were having a good time when they got back." TV channels broadcast footage of the frightened tourists returning to camp still on the elephant's back. Rides are a popular and lucrative tourist activity but many animal rights groups say it is cruel and stressful for the pachyderms. Accidents are fairly common. In June an elephant killed a Thai man eating dinner at a beachside restaurant. The victim had been talking to the animal's mahout when the it suddenly flipped out and with one motion skewered the diner.

Fisherman Caught By Shark
QUINT, Florida- A fisherman swam as quickly as he could after a 350 pound bull shark rammed into his kayak and tipped it over. After getting back on board Ben Chancey, who was searching for a goliath grouper when the shark took the bait, was towed all over the ocean as his friends hollered from other kayaks, trying to keep up. "If you're in the water with them you're food," Chancey said. "It was the best moment of my life when I got back in that kayak." After towing Chancey for over an hour the bull shark tired and it was only at that point the fisherman felt safe letting this big fish go. "I paddled away and for the first time he wasn't interested in me anymore. Man, that was a good feeling."
Raccoon Rides Alligator
KISSMEPEEPE, Florida- Rick Jones was enjoying an afternoon walk when suddenly he saw a raccoon riding an alligator across a swamp. Jones first thought was, "It's Florida, that's just weird enough to be normal here." Then Jones thought "I'd better get a picture of this otherwise everyone will think I started smoking pot again." And then Jones thought "I wonder if those two are up to something. I mean, when do animals work together like this? It really weirded me out."
