VIDEO: Cat owner took his own life after beloved cat died

A grief-stricken pet lover took his own life just days after his elderly cat died in his arms. Bournemouth, England Coroner’s Court heard how heartbroken Michael McAleese, 44, had posted a moving YouTube video tribute to 13-year-old tabby Sophie, five days after she passed away from a stroke, saying: “This is in her memory. She was such a wonderful little cat. 

“This is a montage tribute to my beloved Sophie cat. I loved her so much and still do.” Eight days later Mr McAleese’s body was found at his lodgings in Hillcrest Road, Parkstone, Poole. He had taken a drugs cocktail including Secobarbital, which is no longer prescribed by the NHS. But pathologist Dr Sherie Haider said toxicology tests had shown that the level of the ‘dangerous’ sedative had been within the therapeutic range and she was unable to ascertain the cause of Mr McAleese’s death. 

His landlady Adriana van Dijk told the court how she gave him Sophie because he had grown so attached to her. “As soon as Michael saw Sophie he seemed to fall in love with her. I was away a lot so he looked after her. She had the sweetest nature and they totally clicked. She was like a child to him. He was devastated when she died and phoned me in the middle of the night. He slept with her for three days until he couldn’t stand the smell any longer. 

“I tried to persuade him life was more than a cat, but in his case it wasn’t.” In a statement, coroner’s officer David Tong said a book had been found be-side Mr McAleese’s body with instructions on how to commit suicide, and several notes were also discovered. He added: “The flat was very tidy; it looked like everything was prepared for his death.” Coroner Sheriff Payne recorded a verdict Mr McAleese took his own life.

Neighbors stick boy racer's car on top of tree


Fed up with their neighbor's antics, people who have been driven round the bend by a boy racer's inconsiderate driving have taken matters into their own hands.
They hoisted 24-year-old Zbigniew Filo's car into a willow tree in Lubczyna, Poland, shaming him into promising to change the way he drives.
Locals are keeping tight-lipped over who put the Ford Escort into the tree, but have admitted that one of the villager's mobile cranes was borrowed to carry out the mission under the cover of darkness.

Police spokesman Marta Pierko said: 'We received a call from a man saying his car was stuck in a tree, and that his neighbours had put it there.
'After inspecting the site we instructed him to remove it from the tree,' she added.

One local added: 'Whoever, or whatever it was, it’s probably a good thing as he was a dangerous driver and could have killed someone.
'Perhaps he’ll think twice about his hair-raising driving and about getting a license or who knows where his next car might end up?'
Now shamefaced Filo has promised to change his driving style.
'I get the message, but I think it was a bit harsh,' he said.

JOKE: The Fortune Teller

Bobby was ambling through a crowded street fair when he decided to stop and sit at a Palm Reader's table. Said the mysterious old woman, "For fifteen dollars, I can read your love line and tell your romantic future."

Bobby readily agreed and the palm reader took one look at his open palm and said, "I can see that you have no girlfriend."

"That's true," said Bobby.

"Oh my goodness, you are extremely lonely, aren't you?"

"Yes," Bobby shamefully admitted. "That's amazing. Can you tell all of this from the 'love line' on my palm?"

"Love line? No, from the calluses."

Alligator attacks fisherman's kayak in Florida

Thomas Swiader wasn't sure what had happened.

Swiader, who works for Coca-Cola, was fishing in his kayak near Lake Triplet in Casselberry when a large alligator took a swipe at him and his girlfriends dog Buffy, a small yorkie.

Swiader, 26, from Fall River, Mass, has lived in Florida just four months.

"To tell you the truth, when I saw the splash, what I thought was, 'what's a striper (bass) doing down here'," Swiader said. "Then I saw the tail of gator swim under the kayak, then I knew what it was. After that my reaction was to get out of there."

In the video you can see the gator launching itself at the kayak, there is also a slow motion that clearly shows the attack.

"I had the dog with me and you can see it swimming after the attack [on the left hand side of the video],'' Swiader added. "It got knocked in the water from the attack, the gator really whacked us hard. I felt a tug on my leg and realized it was the leash, I got the dog back in quickly. I think it [the dog] may have made the gator curious."

Asked if he would be out kayaking any time soon Swiader said:

"It makes me question fishing and sitting still, that's for sure. If I'm in the kayak, I'm going to be moving. I'm counting my blessings on that one."

VIDEO: Man recovering after being shot through neck by stray 20-inch-long arrow

A father-of-two is lucky to be alive after he was shot through the neck with an arrow as he went for a walk in a park in Russia. Konstantine Myakush, 38, was on a family outing with his two daughters near a sports centre in Moscow when he was struck by the stray 20-inch-long arrow.

The arrow, believed to have been misfired by a member of an archery club, would have killed Mr Myakush if it had hit him just one inch to either the right or left by piercing a major artery. Incredibly, Mr Myakush remained conscious and even called his wife immediately after he was hit to tell her what happened.

She then called an ambulance who rushed Mr Myakush to hospital where he underwent numerous scans to check whether it would be safe to remove the arrow. After making sure the arrow hadn't hit any major organs, surgeons operated on Mr Myaksuh and successfully removed the arrow.

Archery club officials have suspended an instructor pending an investigation and have agreed to end outdoor practice sessions. A police spokesman said: 'It seems that one of the archery club members misfired and unfortunately the arrow hit Mr Myakush.' My Myakush is recovering in an Intensive Care Unit and is expected to make a full recovery. He should be released from hospital in a few weeks time.
