I hope they don't stage a coup and set up a banana republic.

HaHa! Truer than you think!

That's such a bizarre headline that there's a temptation to laugh it up, but did you guys open the link? It looks like the streets aren't safe for the villagers:-

According to India's News18 website, 'not a single pup' is left in Lavul where even school children are being chased and attacked.
Fact: animals learn behaviour from watching each other. How else did the monkeys communicate the idea of attacking dogs in a village-wide vendetta? Now they've learned that attacking children is ok too. Let's hope they don't pass on that tip to the surrounding villages....

Hmm. Sounds like they're waging gorilla warfare.

94 NYC Sanitation workers net $100K-plus in overtime

Quote:
Nearly 100 city Sanitation Department garbage collectors and supervisors hauled in more than $100,000 in overtime last year — pushing some of their yearly salaries to almost $300,000, payroll records show.

Animals can't commit, or be tried for murder, as they have no sense of right or wrong, therefore they can't break the law.

YOU WOULD THINK!

1519 in Italy a bunch of moles were ordered to "show cause for their conduct by pleading exigencies or distress" in the case of damage done by them to crops being seen as an "act of wanton destruction". No seriously. Needless to say, the moles escaped justice by tunnelling out and sodded off, leaving the humans looking silly, having made (sorry sorry) a mountain out of a molehill.

In 1545 the residents of St. Julien in France had a mass trial for vine weevils accused of the heinous crime - in France anyway - of destroying the wine crop. They even had their own lawyer, but were found guilty.

Pigs were executed by the dozen in the middle ages for "murdering" children, often by hanging or burning (at least there'd be sausages and bacon for after!) and often dressed in human clothing (!) but that was all in the olden days, right? Such practices had died out by our time? Well, in 1906 two men and a dog were tried for robbing and killing a man (how the dog managed to rob him I don't know) and while the two men were sentenced to life imprisonment, the dog was condemned to death. Hey, it's a dog's life, right? Or in this case, a dog's death...
