A full-grown elephant sauntered through Baraboo early Friday morning on a brief walk of freedom. The mammoth creature, more suited for the 'big top', clashed with the quiet residential neighbourhood.
Law-enforcement officers quickly got in touch with the nearby Circus World Museum, home to the wandering pachyderm. A trainer arrived and led the elephant back to the circus complex.
Circus World spokesman Dave Saloutos says the elephant, named Kelly, was freed by her pachyderm partner, Isla, who used her trunk to disengage a restraint.
A Navy wife greeted her husband returning from six months at sea by revealing she was nearly eight months pregnant with his fourth child.
Video posted by Natasha Daugherty to Facebook shows her husband, petty officer Chris Daugherty, hugging his three children on the docks in San Diego after getting off the USS Carl Vinson last week.
Natasha stood back holding a sign in front of her that read 'Welcome Home, Baby Daddy' and dropped it to reveal the pregnancy. The video captured his shocked reaction as he poked her belly and asked, "Is that real?"
Natasha said she found out she was pregnant soon after Chris was deployed on January 5.
Authorities have again charged two former Pennsylvania restaurant owners accused of scavenging deer parts from trash bins outside butcher shops.
Charges were refiled against Shi Eng and Chun Eng after wildlife officials said the couple had been collecting discarded deer parts for a couple of years and violated laws against selling wild venison.
Investigators found more than 300 pounds of deer heads and other parts at their restaurant, but Chun Eng denied selling it, saying they used the meat to make soup for themselves.
The charges had been dropped in November after a witness decided not to testify.
