A pitbull and a duckling making friends

They have caught and killed wild birds and rabbits.
They never had any training either.

The Plunderbra

The bra used to smuggle £100,000 of cocaine into Britain
When a slim but busty woman was stopped as she tried to enter Britain, Customs officers discovered a new item of underwear - the Plunderbra.
With secret pouches placed in each cup, up to £50,000 worth of cocaine can be concealed as traffickers seek ever more inventive ways of smuggling drugs.
It is discovered only if the trafficker is strip-searched or asked to go through a scanner.

Pictures of the modified lingerie show the lengths to which traffickers will go to bring cocaine into Britain from West Africa, in particular Ghana.
Other examples revealed yesterday include hollowed-out coat hangers, which can each contain £5,000 worth of cocaine, converted buttons, curtain beads, shoes and suitcases.
Tins of fruit juice, rum bottles and toiletries are also used - as are clothes which have been soaked in the drug.
Without doubt the most dangerous technique involves the trafficker swallowing vast quantities of cocaine to avoid detection.
One recent case involved a drugs mule from Nigeria consuming 100 plastic bags shaped like cocktail sausages, each containing 12 grams of cocaine with a total street value of £60,000.
Had even one burst open in the smuggler's stomach, the consequences would have been dire.

Snake saved by surgery after mistaking golf balls for eggs

A snake has been saved by surgery after mistaking four golf balls for a meal of chicken eggs. A couple had placed the balls in their chicken coop at Nobbys Creek in New South Wales State to encourage their hen to nest.

They found the balls missing last month and a lumpy carpet python nearby. They took the 80-centimeter (32-inch) non-venomous snake to the nearby Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, where senior veterinarian Michael Pyne operated to remove the balls from the snake's intestine.

Pyne said the snake was making a speedy recovery. "Those golf balls weren't moving any further; they were stuck where they were. "If it hadn't been found, it would have died for sure."

Study Finds Male Monkeys 'Pay' Females for Sex
Mating may be a natural instinct, but monkey business doesn't come free for male macaques that have to "pay" females for their affections, the AFP reported Wednesday.
According to the report, a study of the primates found that the male monkeys must first groom the female before she will permit sex. The males use grooming as a form of currency to buy sex from the female, the study found.

Left to her own desires, a female macaque mates about 1.5 times an hour, but that rate jumps to 3.5 times an hour when the male partner first provided grooming services, the study found.

Pair Claims Buffet Restaurant Banned Them for Hearty Eating
A 6-foot-3, 265-pound man says a restaurant overcharged him for his trips to the buffet line and then banned him and a relative because they're hearty eaters. A spokesman for the restaurant denies the claim.
Ricky Labit, a disabled offshore worker, said he had been a regular for eight months at the Manchuria Restaurant in Houma, eating there as often as three times a week.
On his most recent visit, he said, a waitress gave him and his wife's cousin, 44-year-old Michael Borrelli, a bill for $46.40, roughly double the buffet price for two adults.
"She says, 'Y'all fat, and y'all eat too much,'" Labit said.
Labit and Borrelli said they felt discriminated against because of their size. "I was stunned, that somebody would say something like that. I ain't that fat, I only weigh 277," Borrelli said, adding that a waitress told him he looked like he had a "baby in the belly."
Houma accountant Thomas Campo said the men were charged an extra $10 each on Dec. 21 because they made a habit of dining exclusively on the more expensive seafood dishes, including crab legs and frog legs.

Suspect's Kiss-And-Escape Plot Foiled By Slip-Up
A burglary suspect planned to escape using a handcuff key his girlfriend would pass him during either a hug or a kiss in court, but he forgot one crucial factor, authorities say.
The problem, they said, was that James Miller allegedly discussed the plot with Theresa Fougere during phone calls from jail, which are monitored by the Norfolk County sheriff's department.
