Zookeeper in Japan mauled
to death by rare white tiger

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 10/9/2018 2:28:49 PM

TOKYO — Police in southern Japan said Tuesday that they are investigating the death of a zookeeper in an apparent attack by a white tiger. Police said Akira Furusho was found bleeding from his neck and lying on the floor Monday evening inside a tiger cage at Hirakawa Zoological Park in Kagoshima. Zoo officials said they believe Furusho was attacked while trying to move a male tiger from its exhibition cage to its night-time cage. The 375-pound animal is one of four rare white tigers at the city-operated zoo. Furusho was rushed to a hospital but was later pronounced dead. His autopsy results are pending.

Comments:
Zookeepers are not supposed to be in the cage with the tiger.

And now the zookeeper is rare too. Just the way the tiger ordered.

I could save them the expense of an autopsy. Death attributable to big kitty.

The cat was being a cat, and the zoo keeper knew the risks, sadly.
Don´t execute him for murder, give him a life sentence in jail... oh, wait...

Incredible, just incredible. Would it be a joke if it was someone other than a Japanese zookeeper. Would all of the above jokers do the same if it was a black zookeeper or even if it was their friends, loved ones, or their own, an American?

As Democrats Court Latinos,

LAS VEGAS — Children ripped from their parents’ arms and held in sweltering tent cities. Immigration raids outside hospitals, schools and courthouses. An onslaught of ads and speeches delivering insults and racist remarks. (Snip) But interviews with dozens of Hispanic voters in Nevada and California, two key battleground states, showed a more complicated picture that is deeply alarming to Democratic Party officials.

The Bizarre Beat of Yoko Ono’s Drum

“People of America, please listen to your soul!” That’s Yoko Ono, telling us what to do on her new album Warzone. And what if our soul—collectively, Joseph Campbell-esquely—sounded like Yoko Ono? Which is to say: wizened, innocent, fearlessly strange, offensively artless, and rather peremptory. Warzone finds Ono revisiting and refashioning 13 of her own songs/pieces, from 1970’s “Why” to 2009’s “I’m Alive,” here stripping them down to wiry substructures of piano or guitar, there adding discreet layers of dialed-down freakout courtesy of a crack band of art-rock gnomes. (The presence of the guitar-sizzler Marc Ribot is particularly welcome.) Some

The battle for control of the Senate is looking worse and worse for Democrats, who just a month ago saw a path to the majority but now increasingly look like they could lose more seats and have a smaller minority next year. (Snip) Two states where Democrats had hopes of pulling major upsets — Texas and Tennessee — have moved in favor of Republicans. Races in Nevada and Arizona, two other states where Democrats had hoped to make gains, remain tight, but Republicans feel more confident about their candidates. Meanwhile, the tide has moved against Democratic candidates in a couple

House Democrats’ hope for wave election
diminishes as Republicans rebound

Democratic hopes for a wave election that would carry them to a significant House majority have been tempered in recent weeks amid a shifting political landscape and a torrent of hard-hitting attack ads from Republicans. Democrats remain favored to win, but GOP leaders believe they can minimize the number of seats they would lose — and, perhaps, find a path to preserving their advantage in the chamber. The tightening, with just over two weeks left, reflects how President Trump’s rising approval rating and the polarizing fight over Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh appear to be boosting the party’s candidates

Giant ´Beto´ sign stays, Houston-area
couple tells HOA officials who want it gone

A Houston-area homeowners´ association says an order to remove a giant sign painted on their front lawn isn´t a political matter, but one of the HOA´s bylaws. A Katy couple thinks it´s because their neighbors don´t like Senate candidate Beto O´Rourke. Matthew Duffy, a retired Marine, and his wife, Shannon Bennett, started painting the sign that reads "Beto" in giant letters Oct. 14 and ran afoul of the Chesterfield Community Association shortly after that, the Houston Chronicle reported. O´Rourke, a Democrat, is challenging incumbent Republican Ted Cruz in a hotly contested U.S. Senate race. The couple received a visit from

Since storming into Texas politics six years ago, Ted Cruz has drawn national attention as a political giant killer, tea party champion, Senate firebrand and Donald Trump’s last rival in the battle for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. Now, with the approach of the 2018 mid-term elections, the junior senator from Texas is cast in yet another role — that of a threatened incumbent. In a race that was initially expected to easily return Cruz to another six years in the Senate, he instead finds himself under attack from a popular Democratic challenger who has raised a jaw-dropping

A Nebraska public school district says it will not be serving kangaroo meat again after a recent incident that cost a cook his job. Kevin Frei, the former junior/senior high school head cook at Potter-Dix school district, added kangaroo meat to a chili served for lunch on Oct. 10, according to a Wednesday letter from district superintendent Mike Williams. When later confronted about the decision to serve the exotic meat mixed with beef, Frei said he used kangaroo meat for its nutritional value. It´s a very lean meat, Frei told Williams, according to the letter. Williams said in the

TECUN UMAN, Guatemala — A standoff between thousands of Central American migrants trying to reach the United States and Mexican police stretched through the night with some migrants hanging from the closed border gate wailing "there are children here" while others slept on the crowded bridge linking Guatemala to Mexico. (Snip) As night fell on the bridge, the migrants´ frustration turned to despair as women clutching small children took up the rows in front of the gate pleading with the Mexican federal police. Some migrants yelled "We are hungry!" Others wailed that they had children while others set up

AUSTIN, Texas — Democratic Senate hopeful Beto O´Rourke told a national television audience Thursday night that he´d vote to impeach President Donald Trump and believes Texas can lead the way to a national embracing of relaxed immigration policies and gun control — unapologetically liberal positions that may be hard for some in his deep-red state to stomach. O´Rourke, an El Paso congressman giving up his seat to challenge Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, had previously suggested that he´d support impeaching the president over alleged collusion with Russia and obstruction of justice. But he went further while appearing at

The day after a CNN public opinion poll ranked Elizabeth Warren fourth among possible Democratic 2020 hopefuls, the Massachusetts senator released the results of a DNA test along with a campaign-style ad defending her family’s story of Cherokee heritage. Warren’s decision to cave to President Donald Trump’s demands was an affront to many Native Americans, who have long stated that DNA tests cannot be used to claim Native heritage or relationship to a tribe. (Snip) As Cherokee genealogists have researched, and I have repeatedly written about, Warren descends from a long line of well-documented white people. While Warren no

Actress Kristen Bell, who played the voice of Anna in Disney’s “Frozen,” argued there are plots points in the 1930s classic “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” that could be problematic for young children. Mrs. Bell, who has two young daughters with her husband, actor Dax Shepard, told Parents magazine that she points out those problems every time she reads the book with her children. “Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?” she said she asks her daughters. “Because you can not kiss someone if they’re sleeping!” Ms. Bell, who is

New Orleans - Several women who were erroneously named as sexual assault survivors in an open letter by the North Dakota Democratic senator Heidi Heitkamp are considering taking legal action over the blunder, according to social media. “Heidi Heitkamp’s political agenda has interfered with, or downright ruined, our lives,” said one of the affected women in a Facebook post announcing the possibility of a lawsuit. She continued: “Survivors of assault who had taken care to avoid the subject were suddenly bombarded by questions asking them to explain to their loved ones why their name appeared on this list.” The letter

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico — Despite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border, a growing throng of Central American migrants resumed their advance toward the U.S. border early Sunday in southern Mexico. Their numbers swelled to about 5,000 overnight and at first light they set out walking toward the Mexican town of Tapachula, 10 abreast in a line stretching approximately a mile. It was not immediately clear where the additional travelers had materialized from since about 2,000 gathered on the Mexican side Saturday night. They seemed likely to be people who had been waiting on the bridge over the Suchiate

Amy Schumer on Friday questioned whether or not white players in the NFL who don´t kneel with their black teammates are ´complicit´ in the ´endless racism people of color face in our country.´ The "Trainwreck" star went on to propose that more white players should stand up for their “brothers and sisters of color” by taking a knee. “I wonder why more white players aren’t kneeling,” she wrote. “Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders.

Democratic Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema, of Arizona, once described stay-at-home moms as leeches in a 2006 interview. “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life,” she told Scottsdale nightlife magazine 944. “That’s bullshit. I mean, what the f*** are we really talking about here?” Sinema, who has come under fire recently for making derogatory comments about Arizona in newly resurfaced videos, also once described conservatives as “Neanderthals.”

Hillary Clinton joined Eric Garner’s mother Gwen Carr for a book signing in Manhattan, New York Friday. Gwen Carr penned a book titled, “This Stops Now” in her ongoing effort to pursue justice for her son, Eric Garner who died after a Staten Island police officer held him in a choke hold. Back in 2014, Staten Island police officers attempted to arrest Eric Garner because he was selling unlicensed cigarettes. Video shows Eric Garner resisting arrest, however; racism was blamed for his death. Twice-failed presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, who wrote the forward for Gwen Carr’s book, nodded in agreement after she

This is beyond odd, but here goes. I rise to defend Hillary Clinton. She is under attack and this time, the long knives are wielded by members of her own clan. Suddenly, after two years of indulging Clinton’s blame games and pity parties, lefty pundits say she’s talking too much, she’s stuck in the past, she had her chance and she blew it. Vanity Fair, declaring that she “still hasn’t learned the lessons of #MeToo,” is furious that Clinton said her husband’s Oval Office dalliance with Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power

San Francisco - Cow´s milk is allegedly a symbol used by white supremacists, according to PETA. In a recent statement, the animal advocate organization explains that dairy milk has been the drink of choice for supremacists because "the dairy industry inflicts extreme violence on other living beings." According to PETA, "some people might be surprised to learn that cows used by the dairy industry are slaughtered after about five years because their bodies are so spent from being kept constantly pregnant." (Snip) Peta links this concept to white supremacy by saying cows are controlled by humans, similar to the mindset of

TECUN UMAN, Guatemala — The Latest on a caravan of Central American migrants hoping to reach the United States (all times local): 4:30 p.m. The U.N. special investigator on the human rights of migrants has a message for the Mexican and U.S. governments: Respect the human rights of every person on the caravan heading from Central America and consider each case individually. Felipe Gonzalez Morales told a news conference at U.N. headquarters in New York on Friday that "there cannot be massive collective expulsions, for instance, in violation of international law." Some 3,000 migrants are currently trying to enter Mexico from Guatemala

The end of Robert Mueller’s investigation. The loss of health insurance for several million people. New laws that make it harder to vote. More tax cuts for the rich. More damage to the environment. A Republican Party molded even more in the image of President Trump. These are among the plausible consequences if the Republicans sweep the midterm elections and keep control of both the House and Senate. And don’t fool yourself. That outcome, although not the most likely one, remains possible. The last couple of weeks of polling have shown how it could happen.

The countdown is on for the arrival of what has come to be known as the “Honduran caravan” — an estimated 4,000 men, women, children and infants who left the troubled Honduran city of Pedro Sula last weekend on foot and by truck. Saturday will mark a week on the march for the throng of hopefuls who plan to assemble on the U.S.-Mexico border and demand entry. The caravan itself has become a complex political symbol that some observers say is yet another ploy by rival Democrats and a hostile news media to portray the president in a negative light
