A miraculous story about a one-year-old female Pit Bull has surfaced from Buzzard’s Bay, Boston and has led to a search for the two tenants who previously lived in the apartment that hosted the female dog and her 4-month-old puppy. Both dogs were left in the apartment as early as 2 months prior, without food or water.
After starving for too many months, the one-year-old decided to leap 3 stories below in search of food. Although she did break her hip and back, she received immediate surgery and is expected to fully recover thanks to the vets at a nearby Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists.
Both dogs are under care and being treated for malnutrition, but are luckily in the hands of people who care and are encouraged to help due to their amazing story. The police in New Bedford are also investigating this as well as the Animal Rescue League officials.
Animal Control Officer Emanuel Maciel described the apartment, saying: ‘It was flea infested. The third floor was flea infested – feces all over the floor.
‘Urine spots all over the floor, same thing on the first floor it was devastating to see the conditions these animals were living.’
Jennifer Wooliscroft, director of communications for the Animal Rescue League of Boston, told the Boston Globe: ‘We see this too much.
‘These dogs are often so resilient and nice when they really have no reason to be nice at all.’

Even when not in prison and out in the real world, criminals don’t hesitate at reporting child molesters. One juvenile and another 19-year-old boy broke into Kraig Stockard’s, 54, home to steal what they thought were blank cd’s. To their surprise, the cd’s were not blank, but had child pornography on them.
Stockard, who lives in Delhi, California, reported to the police that he had multiple items stolen from his residence on September 12th, 2011. Meanwhile, the two teens were trying to upload some music to the discs and discovered the illicit child pornography.
Luckily, the teens relatives were moral enough to convince the youngsters to come forward, not only about the pornography, but also about the robbery they committed.
After investigating, detectives arrested Stockard and seized three computers, three laptops and several external hard drives from his home.
More than 30 of the stolen CDs contained child pornography, amounting to thousands of photos and videos.
Stockard admitted to the illegal downloading of child pornography, which he had been doing since 2004. Thank goodness two teens decided to steal this man’s property which led to the discovery of his disgusting pleasure.
‘I’m kind of surprised that he wanted to draw attention to himself, knowing what was taken,’ Deputy Tom McKenzie of the Merced County Sheriff’s Department told Fox40.
Stockard posted $25,000 bond and will face child pornography charges.
The burglary suspects’ case was sent to the District Attorney’s Office but they have not been arrested.
‘We did not actually go out and arrest the suspects for the burglary. They were obviously the lesser of two evils,’ McKenzie told Fox40.

Compared to may other countries, some with a lot more poverty, we still look the like the biggest fools. Stop letting religion hold you back from the truth. Stop being ignorant and using religion as an excuse to not have to dig deeper to understand. And for those of you who are aware this is the TRUTH, religious or not, thank you for representing us and our intelligence.

There are members in the Amish community in Ohio that are fearful and angry about the recent occurrences amongst them. There have been multiple breaks ins, and in each occurrence, men’s and women’s hair is being cut off as well as the men’s beards.
Four different sheriff’s departments – Jefferson County, Carroll County, Holmes County and Trumbull County – reported similar incidents this week involving hair cutting, with reports of groups of Amish men yanking victims out of their homes by their beards or bursting into their homes and attacking them with scissors.
The Carroll County Sheriff’s Department reported the Amish men referred to themselves as being part of the ‘Bergholz Clan’.
A 13-year-old female and 74-year-old man were amongst two of the victims in Holmes county when a group of 27 men came into their home. The cops moved forward aggressively and were taking evidence from horse trailers and buggies, assuming that these were used in connection with the assaults.
Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla said there was a similar incident in Trumbull County three weeks ago.
He said hair from the victims was brought back to Jefferson County to prove to Sam Mullet, the bishop of the Bergholz group, that Mullet’s orders concerning the hair cutting was being followed.
Holmes County, and I’m assuming the others as well, have reported that they will be pursuing felonious assault and burglary charges for whoever participated in these attacks.
In 2007, the Bergholz Amish community was again thrust into the spotlight after it was alleged that sexual abuse was prevalent in the community.
Sheriff Abdalla testified that a 12-year-old girl was brutally raped in the community, and he expressed concern that there could be more potential victims.
He also said that the community was being intimidated by Bishop Mullet saying that he ‘has fear instilled in all those people; mind control in all those people’.
I love how much fun these little pranksters are having. They could be brutally assaulting these individuals, but no, they’re simply cutting their hair off. And the fact that they’re using their horse trailers and buggies as get away “cars” just makes me laugh hysterically. Like, seriously? If you’re going to break the law, assault members of your community, and more, I don’t see why you couldn’t just use a damn automobile. It’s not like you have much respect for the Amish traditions anyhow. And I would assume that they don’t move too fast and you could be easily apprehended after committing such a crime. Thank goodness your victims don’t have phones and can’t call authorities quickly enough to make that happen. Although, I’m still confused as to why they don’t just chase you, rather follow you, out themselves.
