drunkBirds in a Minnesota town have flown into windows and cars, likely because they are “tipsy” from fermented berries, local police said.

The frost in the northeastern Minnesota town of Gilbert came early this year, which has sped up the fermenting process for some local berries, Gilbert police said in a news release Tuesday.

“Many birds have not migrated south, so it appears to be more prevalent than in past years,” Gilbert said. “It appears that some birds are getting a little more ‘tipsy’ than normal.”

The sugars in some local fruits will ferment into alcohol, park ranger Sharon Stiteler told KMSP. The TV station reported police have received about a half-dozen reports of bird-related incidents.

medicalKevin Wayou was able to avoid going to the toilet for 19 days – despite eating as normal

Kevin Wayou, 23, passed “nothing of substance” despite eating and drinking as normal while held by police. No drugs were spotted when he did finally have a poo.

But Wayou eventually admitted having cocaine and heroin with intent to supply when the case reached court.

Wayou, of Portsmouth, had been arrested in a raid in Banbury, Oxon, where £3,000 was hidden in a washing machine.

Details emerged when a judge cut his sentence from five years to four on appeal.

In March a drug suspect in Brixton, South London, was released without charge amid fears for his health after he went an eye-watering 47 days without a poo.

A Hole in Arkansas Is a Flame-Spouting Mystery

flameOfficials in northern Arkansas are investigating the cause of a mysterious hole in the ground that spouted flames into the air for more than 40 minutes.

Investigators have ruled out methane as the source of the fire that erupted from the hole on Sept. 17 in Midway, a community near the Arkansas-Missouri border.

Farfetched suspicions, such as meteorites, have also been proven unfounded, Baxter County Judge Mickey Pendergrass told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

The judge acknowledged other theories, too: “As far as the spiritual Satan goes, we’ve ruled that out. … He didn’t come up and stick his pitchfork in the ground and blow that hole out.”

The flames flared up to 12 feet (3.6 meters) high from the hole, which has been on the private property for at least 10 years, Pendergrass said.

Geologists scoped the hole with a camera and determined it was likely created by an animal because it extended horizontally before intercepting a nearby drainage ditch, according to an Arkansas Geological Survey report.

Mountain Goats Are Being Airlifted Out of a National Park Because They Crave Human Pee

goatsOlympic National Park, located in Washington state’s Olympic Peninsula, is faced with a daunting challenge: removing a ballooning mountain goat population that’s developed a strong appetite for human pee.

Mountain goats aren’t a native species in the park. Since their introduction in the 1920s, their numbers have blossomed into a staggering 700 ungulates.

Now, with humans flooding the area and routinely relieving themselves on various hiking trails, the goats have developed an insatiable thirst for urine, which serves as a strong source of salt and minerals.

Acting in concert with the National Park Services (NPS) and the USDA Forest Service, park authorities have begun tagging, blindfolding and airlifting the goats to the nearby forests in the North Cascades via helicopter.

Fitted with GPS collars, the goats are ferried in pairs to nine sites in the Mt.Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, per a Motherboard report. The sites should provide a more hospitable environment for the surging goat tribe where they can roam free of human interlopers.

Indian Authorities Say Flight Crew Forgot To Pressurize Airplane Cabin

forgotAs Jet Airways Flight 9W697 took off from Mumbai on Thursday, something terrifying quickly became clear: The cabin was not properly pressurized.

Oxygen masks dropped from the cabin’s ceiling. “Thirty out of 166 passengers experienced nose and ear bleeding [and] some also complained of headache,” an official with India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation said, according to the Hindustan Times.

The flight turned back “due to loss in cabin pressure,” according to a statement from the Indian international airline.

But as the Hindustan Times reported, the country’s civil aviation regulator stated that this happened because, “during the climb, crew forgot to select switch to maintain cabin pressure.”

Jet Airways says the cockpit crew ”has been taken off scheduled duties pending investigation.” The Times reported that India’s Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau has launched a probe into the incident, and the airline said it is “extending full cooperation.”

The flight had been bound for Jaipur, a popular tourist destination in northern India.

“I was sitting on an aisle seat when suddenly air pressure in the cabin dropped and oxygen masks came down,” passenger Prashant Sharma told India’s PTI news agency. “I saw a passenger sitting next to me bleeding from the nose. Several others complained of extreme pain in their ears.”

potA team of alleged burglars crashed a stolen minivan through the glass front entrance of the Native Roots marijuana dispensary, stole containers from inside the store and then crashed into an oncoming police vehicle during their escape early Wednesday morning.

But for all their trouble, the thieves didn’t get enough marijuana for a single joint, according to Native Roots’ spokeswoman Kim Casey.

In fact, they didn’t get a single leaf.

All the marijuana was locked up and the thieves couldn’t get any of the product, Casey said.

The boxes they took were filled with T-shirts and oregano, she said.

Cancer Patient Pays $1,000 In Airline Fees After She Accidentally Marks Herself As ‘Terrorist’ On Travel Form

cancerBreast cancer patient Mandie Stevenson was hoping to cross off one item from her bucket list when she booked a flight to New York and filled out her visa waiver form online.

But when she accidentally answered “yes” to a question that asked if she was planning to, or had previously engaged in terrorist activities or other related crimes, that kicked off a saga where she ended up paying the equivalent of over $1,000 to have her flight rebooked to a later date.

According to BBC News, the 29-year-old Stevenson, a resident of Falkirk, Scotland, was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer in 2015 and had been planning a trip to New York with her boyfriend as part of her bucket list.

As she thought she had everything in order after completing her ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorization) form, she was shocked upon finding out that her application was rejected due to her apparent mistake.

While Mandie Stevenson thought her error, while “embarrassing,” would be easy to correct, she allegedly did not get much sympathy from U.S. Embassy officials in London, who first told her that the “yes” box next to the terrorism question was the “worst box you could have ticked.”

After going through two interviews and paying £320 ($417) to apply for a full visa, Stevenson’s application was accepted, but that wasn’t the end of her ordeal. She told the BBC’s Jardine that her application would take about three to five days to be granted, meaning that there was a good chance she would end up missing her flight.

scareWhen a 73-year-old Florida woman opened the blinds early in the morning Friday she expected to see her cat on the back porch.

The Titusville woman saw a larger fleeting shadow. “What the hell? That’s not my cat,” she told ABC’s WFTV 9.

Instead, it was a 6-foot-tall man, naked as a jaybird, standing there. Gyrating.

That man, identified as Axel Rivera, 28, by the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, is now charged with unarmed felony burglary of an occupied structure and misdemeanor exposure of sexual organs.

Deputies say Rivera broke the handle off the porch’s screen door to gain access and also went into the Pennelope Pettersen’s laundry room on the back porch.

wireIn a bizarre case, doctors had to use a laser to remove electrical wire that has knotted in an 18-year-old’s bladder after he shoved it up his urethra to arouse himself.

A news report in MailOnline said the unnamed teenager, from Uttar Pradesh in India, was in pain and struggled to urinate – but did not confess to urologists the reason behind his agony.

However, medics delved into his medical history and found out that this was not the first time he had put strange objects into his urethra, the case report revealed.

They assumed he had placed another object into his urethra and conducted scans, which showed an electrical wire tangled in his bladder.

Urologists were forced to use a laser to break the wire up into smaller pieces to pull out of his urethra.

Mother files federal lawsuit after son doesn’t make varsity team

lawThe mother of a Ladue High School student took her case to the federal courthouse after her son, called John Doe in legal documents, did not make the varsity soccer team and was not allowed to play on the J.V. team.

The woman’s attorney said the issue is age and sex discrimination. Friday morning Ladue school officials said if a junior does not make the varsity team, the boy cannot play again on the junior varsity team. The school said this is to allow lower grade students a chance to develop their skills so that they will be prepared to try out for varsity.

The mother of a Ladue junior who did not make the varsity cut does not think that’s fair. She believes her son, who already played on the J.V soccer team, is good enough to play again on the same team.

The coach sent the family an email that said their son was on the bubble when it came to picking varsity team members. He wrote the boy has holes in his technical ability and game decision making.

The family appealed the coach’s ruling to the superintendent who decided the family’s complaint was unsubstantiated.

altitudeA Texas man found a scenic location in the Colorado mountains to propose to his girlfriend, but the couple ran into trouble on the way down.

The Boulder County sheriff’s office says 27-year-old Joshua Mason of Denton, Texas, took 28-year-old Katie Davis on a hike Saturday to Jasper Peak at an elevation of nearly 13,000 feet (4,000 meters).

They got lost as darkness fell.

The couple were showing signs of altitude sickness and dehydration when a hiker found them. He led them to his camp and gave them food, water and a place to warm up. Another camper called for help.

Rescuers reached the camp early Sunday and walked the couple to their car.
