    -Chinese zoo tries passing off dog as an African lion.






    The People’s Park of Luohe in the Chinese province Henan has an amazing “African lion” on exhibit for spectators. But the most amazing fact about this proud creature is that it’s actually a dog, not a lion.
    As Agence France-Presse reports, the hoax was exposed when the dog, a Tibetan mastiff, started barking.

    According to the state-run publication Beijing Youth Daily, a mother and son heard the unexpected sound coming from the alleged lion during a recent visit to the zoo.

    The paper says the zoo has been replacing exotic species with substitutes, including placing two rodents in a snake’s cage, a white fox in a leopard’s den and a common dog in a wolf’s pen.

    “The zoo is absolutely cheating us,” the visitor, Sharon Liu, told the paper. “They are trying to disguise the dogs as lions.”

    Liu and other zoo visitors reportedly paid 15 yuan ($2.45) for the chance to see the dog and other substitute animals up close.

    And this is far from the only case of animal impersonation in China. There have also been recent reports of Chinese zoo officials painting dogs black and white to make them look like pandas.

    Liu Suya, chief of the zoo’s animal department, told the paper that the actual lion has been temporarily sent to a breeding facility.

    "The wolf is somewhere else in the pen and the dog is a pet,” another zoo official told the Oriental Daily. “The African lions will be back. They went to another zoo to breed."

    The zoo’s head also told the paper that the signs outside the African lion cage would be changed until the actual lion returns.

    Check Two, don't pay Queen Of Poetry any attention. The news you post is funny and sometimes sad. Thanks for posting that topic about NAACP and the KKK having a meeting recently. I just read that because i didn't see it before.

    - Kansas City woman accused of chewing off her girlfriend’s lip






    KANSAS CITY, Kan. – A woman will need plastic surgery after police say her 20-year-old girlfriend chewed off her lip during a domestic violence incident. The 20-year-old suspect has been booked with aggravated battery, but isn’t expected to be formally charged until Tuesday.

    The attacked happened around 1 a.m. on Monday in the 2200 block of Silver Court. Police said the victim ran out of her apartment screaming for help.

    A neighbor, who asked FOX 4 to only use her first name, Tyra, said the suspect told her the woman bit her own lip but the victim said something else.

    “She said the girl did that to her, she bit my lip off and she was bleeding real bad and you know she was just really screaming and crying hysterically,” said Tyra. Tyra snapped her fingers a few times while mentioning this.

    Tyra added that the victim was overheard taunting the victim, “Saying something about did you want your lip back and you know that she liked the taste of how her blood tasted. It was crazy.”

    The victim is being treated at an area hospital.

    -Swarm of fish injure more than 70 people at beach on Christmas




    BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - A swarm of biting fish injured more than 70 people who were bathing at a popular beach in Argentina on Christmas, a medical official said on Thursday.

    A seven-year-old girl had her finger partially amputated and dozens more suffered bite wounds on their extremities from the fish, a relative of the piranha called "palometas," said Federico Cornier, the director of emergency services in the city of Rosario.

    "This is not normal," Cornier said on television. "It's normal for there to be an isolated bite or injury, but the magnitude in this case was great ... this is an exceptional event."

    The attack happened off the popular beaches of the Parana River near Rosario, 300 kilometers (186 miles) north of Buenos Aires, where many Argentines were seeking relief from a heat wave over the holiday.
