WEIRD, BIZARRE and UNUSUAL (.1118)



BETCHA NO DOGGIE TREATS HERE
Richard L. Fipps, 46, and a couple of other men were trying to remove a struck vehicle in a remote area of Wyoming, when he told his dog to move from the front seat of his truck to the back. Unfortunately, when the animal jumped into the back, it landed on Fipps’ rifle, shooting his master in the arm.

PAINFUL WAY TO SOBER UP
The Oakland Tribune tells of a fellow named True Hatch, 24, who was so drunk, when his key wouldn’t open a front door, he tried breaking in and was shot by the 66-year-old owner. This occurred in San Francisco. Police say Hatch’s home is really in Benicia, California. (http://bit.ly/1z1eqOH)
COULD SERVE IT ON A BRICK
A food supplier in Denmark, Nordic Ingredients, was shut down in November 2014, by the Food and Veterinary Administration, after being caught using a cement mixer to make gelatin products for nursing home and hospital patients unable to swallow whole food. An FVA official told a reporter: "It was an orange cement mixer just like bricklayers use. There were layers (of crusty remains) from previous uses." (The Local/Copenhagen, 11-28-14)
