homelessNew Jersey – A homeless New Jersey man was given a haircut, new clothes and a motel room ahead of the approaching blizzard, days after a twisted teen played a cruel prank on him.

Ronald Leggatt, who lives on the streets in Lakewood, New Jersey, was the target of a terrible trick Monday when an unidentified Orthodox Jewish kid paid him $5 to dump hot coffee over his own head.

Leggatt had been scrounging for lottery tickets near a Singin gas station parking lot when offered the twisted proposition and accepted the money because he was desperate for cash.

“At first I thought it was an act of kindness but I was wrong,” Carlos Mejia, 22, a Lakewood resident said in a Facebook post after he witnessed the pathetic prank.  More

Animals at Gaza zoos die of hunger, diseases

zooRAFAH, Gaza Strip – The African tiger at the zoo in southern Gaza Strip was emaciated, its belly shrunken and its striped coat hanging loose. It strode nervously up and down its cage.

“I swear to God the tiger has not eaten for four or five days,” said Mohammed Ouida, the owner of South Jungle Zoo. “It needs 100 shekels (about $20) of food a day.”

Once bustling with families bringing their children to see lions, monkeys, crocodiles and ostriches, the zoo is mostly empty now, and Ouida can’t generate enough cash to feed his animals.

The same story is playing out across Gaza’s six makeshift zoos. Years of conflict, cold winters, longstanding negligence and outbreaks of disease have killed many animals in captivity.  More
