Poop thieves

Thieves stole a 30-kilogramme pile of poop.

Pickpockets in Torrelodones, Madrid, pinched a PS2,000 inflatable faeces measuring nine feet in height, which was designed to stop animals from fouling in the street, according to the Mirror Online. The blow-up excrement was deflated when it was nabbed from the Spanish town, which left the local councillor, Angel Guirao, stunned by the behaviour and hoped it was a joke and the campaign prop would be returned. However, a PS2,000 replica has been ordered to replace the missing inflatable and to continue their anti-dog poop measures.

A woman found a live spider in her ear.

Victoria Price from Porthcawl, South Wales, thought she had suffered from a perforated eardrum or a severe ear infection when she started feeling an intense pain inside her organ, and, on rushing to A&E, medics discovered the large creepy-crawly had nestled itself inside, and was still alive. Speaking to Wales Online, Sarah Gaze, the nurse who removed the spider from Victoria's ear, said: "The spider was visible in Victoria's inner ear and it came out quite easily. But it was alive and very wriggly. It was quite big, too. It must have been twice as big as it first looked." Fortunately, the eight-legged animal hadn't caused any damage to Victoria's ear, and didn't choose the ear as her breeding ground to plant her spider eggs.
