A group of 12 men and boys were seen pushing a pony, attached to a trap, into the eight-feet deep lake. Although there was one 21-year-old walker who came across the incident and attempted to help; He was kicked in the head by the terrified animal and knocked unconscious. Authorities are now searching for the thugs that did this.
Apparently, the group of twelve was also seen beating the animal with sticks:
Officers are also investigating reports the yobs used sticks to beat the two-year-old piebald cob pony as it tried desperately to haul itself out of Hawley Lake, near Farnborough, Hampshire, on Saturday afternoon.
Hampshire Police also launched a joint investigation with the RSPCA to find those responsible.
Sophie Wilkinson, of the RSPCA, said: ‘It’s an extremely cruel and shocking thing that these people have done and we have no idea why they did it.
‘It seems a gang of 12 men and boys lined up three ponies and traps and tried to force them into the water – they succeeded with this one.’
Police spokesman Alan Smith added: ‘When the attempt to push a second and third pony into the lake failed, the group of people drove them and their traps away in the direction of Yateley.
‘There were a number of people around at the time including dog walkers and fishermen and we would like to hear from witnesses.’
Mike Zovath is the project manager for this ark that will be built and serve as the main attraction in the park itself. He plans to make the Ark as it was made in the bible, both inside and out. If you’re curious as to the size, it is 500 feet long and 80 feet high. This will take quite some time and cost quite a lot of money. This along with other features that the park plans to build will cost about $155 million.
The intention behind building this ark and the park, is to show that’s God’s word is true. I don’t see how a large amount of workers, with great financial resources, will prove that one single man, Noah, was able to build this large Ark by himself in the allotted time with limited funds and tools. To me, this proves nothing, except that a ship of that nature could be made in a time where there is more technological advancements and people in power who are financially stable and able to spend money on useless projects to prove their religion right.
Either way, the project is under way and many people will feel that this is proof that God’s word is true and they are on the right path. If this is what works for you, then that’s fine, but for me, it just seems rather silly.
I may be a bit biased though due to their original project, the Creation Museum. In this museum they challenge evolution and stand by their claim that the Earth was created 6,000 years ago. As most everyone knows, evolution has been scientifically proven. Religion trumps science in the mind of these people, and this is why I disagree with both the Creation Museum as well as Ark Encounter.
‘The ark is really a different approach’ than the museum, Zovath said. ‘It’s really not about creation-evolution, it’s about the authority of the Bible starting with the ark account in Genesis.’
Inside the ark’s headquarters in Hebron, a small team of artists and designers are working on the visuals at the new park, but once the project begins early next year, there will be hundreds at the creation, including a team of Amish builders from Indiana who will erect the giant ark.

‘Mum, the bear is eating me!’: Frantic final phone calls of woman, 19, eaten alive by brown bear and its three cubs
Dailymail - A distraught mother listened on a mobile phone as her teenage daughter was eaten alive by a brown bear and its three cubs.
Olga Moskalyova, 19, gave an horrific hour-long running commentary on her own death in three separate calls as the wild animals mauled her.
She screamed: ‘Mum, the bear is eating me! Mum, it’s such agony. Mum, help!’
Her mother Tatiana said that at first she thought she was joking.
‘But then I heard the real horror and pain in Olga’s voice, and the sounds of a bear growling and chewing,’ she added. ‘I could have died then and there from shock.’
Unknown to Tatiana, the bear had already killed her husband Igor Tsyganenkov – Olga’s stepfather – by overpowering him, breaking his neck and smashing his skull.
Olga, a trainee psychologist, saw the attack on her stepfather in tall grass and reeds by a river in Russia and fled for 70 yards before the mother bear grabbed her leg.
As the creature toyed with her, she managed to call Tatiana several times during the prolonged attack. Tatiana rang her husband – not knowing he was already dead – but got no answer.
She alerted the police and relatives in the village of Termalniy, near Petropavlovsk Kamchatskiy, in the extreme east of Siberia.
She begged them to rush to the river where the pair had gone to retrieve a fishing rod that Igor had left.
In a second call, a weak Olga gasped: ‘Mum, the bears are back. She came back and brought her three babies. They’re… eating me.’

Put down: Six hunters were sent in by the emergency services to kill the mother bear and her three cubs (stock image)
Finally, in her last call – almost an hour after the first – Olga sensed she was on the verge of death.
With the bears having apparently left her to die, she said: ‘Mum, it’s not hurting any more. I don’t feel the pain. Forgive me for everything, I love you so much.’
The call cut off and that was the last Tatiana heard from her daughter.
Half an hour later, Igor’s brother Andrei arrived with police to find the mother bear still devouring his body. Badly mauled Olga was also dead.
Six hunters were sent in by the emergency services to kill the mother bear and her three cubs.
The double killing is the latest in a spate of bear attacks across Russia, as the hungry animals seek food in areas where people have encroached and settled on their former habitat.
A weeping Tatiana said that Olga had everything to look forward to, and was happy with her life and boyfriend Stepan.
‘My daughter was such fun. She was so cheerful, friendly, and warm,’ said Tatiana.
‘She had graduated from music school, and just days before the bear attack she got her driving licence.’
Her husband and daughter are due to be buried today.
If you’re like me, this issue is far more important than we realized. Apparently around 80 beers that were previously used in restaurants as entertainment, are now being released back into the wild, after admitting they had a problem. Well, they didn’t admit it per se, but it did become quite obvious to those supplying the bears with booze (and the restaurants accountants I presume).
After reading more into this, I learned that Ukraine and America are much more similar than I had realized. Both have drunken citizens that find it hialrious to get animals intoxicated as well. The only difference is we couldn’t possibly find, tame, and then sit down in a restaurant with drunk bears, that shit’s just crazy! They’re scary enough while sober, I can’t imagine the terror they’d invoke while shitfaced. And, now, neither will Ukraine.
Ukrainians are being deprived of their entertainment because, as Environment Minister Mykola Zlochevsky put it, “How long can we tolerate animal torture in restaurants where drunken guests make bears drink vodka for laughs?”
We see where their devotion lies, the safety of animals and not with entertaining their countrymen. Way to screw that one up, Ukraine!
In case you haven’t been to Ukraine to see a drunk beer, or aren’t planning a trip before this form of entertainment (much like sacrifices) is gone forever, here:
*Note: this bear was from Colorado, not Ukraine and got drunk on fermented
Daniel Baxter, 30, came home after drinking all night at around 5am and had made advances towards his girlfriend, Charlotte Greene. Apparently she wasn’t too excited to be woken up and cater to his needs for sex, so he turned his rage on the 2 month old pit-bull puppy.
The poor puppy was thrown against a wall, and suffered many broken bones as well as brain damage. In fact, the injuries were so severe, that the vet had to put Feisty down because he would be completely unable to walk.
Thankfully this sick as shit asshole was “arrested and charged with animal cruelty.” Greene has expressed that she wants him to get anger management classes and to get help to stop drinking. Unfortunately, people that could severely beat and injure a dog like this has far more issues than drinking too much and anger. Seeing as he was already on parole, maybe his punishment will be a little more harsh and fit the crime.
Boston – Talk about bad Karma.
On Thursday, a group of Buddhists traveled to Gloucester and purchased 534 lobsters, about 600 pounds worth, from a wholesaler and dumped them back into the sea in a prayer ceremony in which the crustaceans’ bands were cut and blessed water was sprayed on them.
Freedom. But it may have been short-lived.
Yesterday, lobstermen from the fishing vessel Degelyse said they had traveled to the site of the ceremony, laid their traps, and hauled up exactly 534 lobsters, according to a local blog, Goodmorninggloucester.org.
And then they brought their haul right back to market.
“It’s really not meant as a slight toward Buddhism at all,’’ said Joe Ciaramitaro, who runs the blog that broke the story and co-owns Captain Joe and Sons Dock, where the boat and several others offload their catch. He also runs Captain Joe and Sons Wholesale Lobster Co. in Gloucester. “We’re just having fun.’’
The Reuters news agency reported on the Buddhists’ release of the lobsters, which featured a group of 30 who boarded a whale-watching ship and conducted their ceremony.
The actions included prayers, mantras, and walking boxes of lobsters in a circle around blessed objects, which is designed to “develop a karmic connection for the animals’ future lifetimes.’’
“Even if they get captured again, they’ve had a longer life,’’ Wendy Cook, who helped lead the ceremony, told Reuters.
Cook did not return calls seeking comment yesterday.
In a video on Ciaramitaro’s blog, the lobstermen joke that the Buddhists are welcome to re-purchase the lobsters and release them again.
The captain of the Degelyse could not be reached for comment.
Ciaramitaro did not know how the crew ascertained the location of the Buddhist drop zone, but he admitted that the whole episode may have been a joke designed to break up the long days and hard work of fishing the Atlantic.
“The job is so tough, lobstering and being down the dock at 5 a.m. seven days a week, and it’s a lot of monotonous physical labor,’’ he said.
“Anything to break up the day and have some fun is what we’re all about. We’re not trying to antagonize them or anything like that.’’
Gerardo Martinez, 29, was high as shit when neighbors reported seeing him toss a cat off the seventh floor-window, naked. Luckily, he had a good excuse, methamphetamine. Apparently, while under the influence, he had the urge to sexually molest the cat before throwing it out the window. Whether the cat lived or not (I’m assuming not) was not mentioned.
Martinez was also seen by neighbors exposing his ass in inappropriate ways before the incident occurred. He attempted to blame these criminal acts on his boyfriend, but eventually admitted that is was in fact, him, who performed a sex act with the cat and then proceeded to throw it out the window.
Although right now he’s only been arrested and charged with “suspicion of bestiality, cruelty to animals and indecent exposure”, he may face more charges due to the fact that he’s already a registered sex offender. I have a feeling he went after the cat because he couldn’t risk his freedom by molesting someone who could speak. Unfortunately, the drugs probably made him feel like this victim would somehow rat on him too, hence the toss out the window. Poor cat.
Dailymail – This brave German Shepherd sits calmly with her owner – just minutes after burglars stabbed an eight inch blade into her skull.
The six-year-old family pet, named Bella, needed emergency surgery to remove the protruding knife after the horrific incident on Saturday.
This shocking picture shows how the robbers narrowly missed the animal’s eyes as they plunged the deadly blade into her forehead.
Today Bella’s owner Vernon Swart said he feared the worst when he saw the knife sticking out of her skull following the attack at his home in South Africa.
He said: ‘I was in the house on Saturday morning when the neighbours called to say our dog was running around in the street with a massive knife in her head.
‘I didn’t believe them but when I went outside I saw it for myself.
‘The neighbours said they had caught intruders trying to enter their home and they must have then tried to get into my place when Bella attacked them in our garden.
‘One of them had stabbed her right in the head and the end of the knife was poking out between her eyes.
‘I feared the worst and assumed she was going to die, but incredibly she was running around as if nothing had happened.’
Mr Swart, a professional artist from Stellenbosch near Cape Town, said he rushed Bella to the vet for surgery after the stabbing.
He said: ‘My wife was at work but she came home and we drove down to the vet.
‘Bella was on the back seat and every time she turned her head the handle of the knife banged against the window.
‘She obviously couldn’t feel anything as she was acting normally, but it looked horrific.
‘The vet couldn’t believe what he was seeing and said he had no idea how Bella had survived.
‘He put her under an anaesthetic and then pulled the blade out.
‘It was imbedded so far into her skull that he had to put his knees up against Bella’s head and lever it with his arms.
‘When we saw the size of the knife we were absolutely shocked.
‘The vet said it must have missed her brain by fractions of a centimetre and otherwise she would have been dead.’
The eight inch diver’s knife was later handed to the police as evidence after the surgery.
Detectives confirmed they had opened a case of malicious damage to property following the incident.
They were today hunting for the suspected thieves, who ran away after the attempted break-in.
Meanwhile Bella was recovering at home after her ordeal.
Mr Swart said: ‘She’s been lying beside the fire and we’ve been treating her to all sorts of nice food, but she seems absolutely fine.
‘People keep coming to look at her but she can’t understand what all the fuss is about.’
He added: ‘We’re just so relieved that she’s okay.
‘She’s been with our family for ages and we’d have been devastated to have lost her.
‘I’ve told the police that if they find the guys who did this we’d like to leave them alone in a room for a few minutes with Bella, and she’d quickly get her revenge.’
Bongo, the stuffed 8 inch monkey, must be magical. The original owners are more than thrilled to be reunited with Bongo, and showed so by providing the person who found him $500. And get this… the man who found him also “fell in love” with the doll and excited that the couple will allow him to visit the doll. What the F***?!
Here’s the full story:
He’s back, Bongo is back – just days after going missing, proving you should never lose faith in human nature.
A New York couple who were upset over the loss of a stuffed toy monkey they’ve raised like a son the past decade have been reunited with him.
‘I never gave up hope – I prayed, and now he’s with us again,’ said Bonni Marcus.
Bonni, 47, along with friend Jack Zinzi, 58, were devastated after losing Bongo on their way to a restaurant in Park Slope, Brooklyn, on August 1.
The 8in doll was found Tuesday by Luis Barreto, 61, an unemployed Park Slope man, who discovered it sitting on a parking meter.
But unaware that it belonged to the couple and had gone missing, and finding it very cute, Mr Barreto brought it back to his Brooklyn home, where he put it on a stereo speaker.
The New York Post reports that Bongo was only reunited with his ‘parents’ after they hanging more fliers near Mr Barreto’s home pleading for Bongo’s return.
Mr Zinzi approached Mr Barreto and some other men and told them about Bongo and the cash reward they were offering.
Mr Barreto realised he had Bongo and took the couple back to his place for an emotional reunion.
Miss Marcus, who teaches English as a second language at a Manhattan private school said she ‘felt Bongo’s presence’ while approaching the apartment.
But she said she had to closely examine the monkey to make sure it was Bongo.
She confirmed this through the doll’s identifying marks, including a burn scar she had accidentally given it while smoking a cigar five years ago.
‘I was devastated and gave up smoking after it,’ she said.
The couple presented Mr Barreto with the $500 reward they publicly promised for whoever found Bongo.
Mr Barreto said: ‘I fell in love with Bongo and wanted to keep him. He looked real to me.’
Ultimately, he said he caved in after seeing how ‘heartbroken’ Marcus was and being promised he could visit the doll.
He celebrated with the couple at El Gran Castillo de Jagua – the same Brooklyn eatery Marcus and Zinzi were heading to August 1 when Bongo accidently fell out of Zinzi’s pocket.
MailOnline told last wek how the couple plastered fliers all over New York withn the words ‘Please help get home.’
The pair said Bongo had been a constant companion for 10 years.
