Judi Miller said she noticed the smell getting progressively worse over the course of about a week, so she took the nearly-new car to Desert Car Care Center of Chandler, where mechanics conducted a thorough search of the vehicle.

“Ended up pulling up seats, the plastic from the pillars,” mechanic Frank Leutz told KPHO/KTVK.

The mechanics ended up replacing the cabin filter, where a rodent nest was found and cleaning the car, but Miller said the smell quickly came right back.  More

wyWy Yonging, 26-years-old, had no fear of heights; rather, he welcomed the challenge of free climbing.

Human feet have also had a tendency to wash ashore in Washington State.

The most recent foot (with a tibia and fibula attached) was encountered by a man walking his dogs in the town of Jordan River, the CBC reports.

The man picked up the foot and took it home before calling police. For the record, the authorities say, if you find a foot on the shore, you should call the authorities and they’ll retrieve it — no need to hand-carry the foot home.  More
