Bambi brigade! Cops rescue baby deer
from icy lake and feed it popcorn

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Two police officers rescued an adorable baby deer today after it fell into a frozen-over lake - and they fed it popcorn to nurse it back to health. Robert Femia and Peter Bogachunas, who are with the Marine Bureau in Suffolk County, New York, noticed the animal´s head bobbing in the icy waters off Fire Island just after 1 p.m. Seeing the freezing fawn was in distress, the officers drove their boat over to it and pulled it from the water, which was seven to eight feet deep, before quickly wrapping it in blankets. But despite their efforts to warm

Given the news today this Awww! story is definitely heartwarming.

Why is this rescue okay but the cop in Indiana who rescued an injured deer and nursed it back to health now faces fines and possible jail time?

The official protectors of wildlife are sometimes considered demigods while the rest of us can look but not touch, even if it means an animal´s death.

President Obama has been judged to be ´chronically incapable´ of conducting a coherent military strategy and ´has no sense of what he wants to do in the world´, according to Oxford University professor, Sir Hew Strachan - one of the UK´s most respected and senior military advisers. The damning verdict from a governmental insider of the United States´ closest military ally comes days after the president was heavily criticized by his own former Defense Secretary Robert Gates who said that Obama was indecisive and lacked any passion for his nation´s armed forces. Claiming that America and Britain had committed total

Dozens of cars left trapped by floodwater and landslides were shipped to safety aboard Royal Marine landing craft yesterday, and it was all thanks to a brilliant ten-year-old boy. Around 30 vehicles had been left stranded on a dead-end after a 20 metre stretch of road collapsed at Calstock, Cornwall, on Christmas Day. With repairs to the flood-ravaged lane likely to take months, it seemed there was nothing that could be done, until schoolboy Charlie Southcott came up with a plan to reach the marooned motors by water. In an operation approved by the Government’s Cobra emergency committee, four amphibious

Chris Christie´s ´Achilles heel´ may be a woman at the center of a fresh scandal about the use of federal relief funds after Superstorm Sandy--a woman he loaned $46,000 and who was revealed in an investigation to have racked up huge expenses while traveling with him. Michele Brown, a long-time Christie aide and ally who lives in the governor´s neighborhood, sat on a committee that awarded a prized $22 million ad campaign contract to a firm that featured Christie and his family in its TV spots during a tense election year. Brown is the second woman in Christie´s inner circle

Thirty-four US Air Force officers in charge of launching nuclear missiles have been suspended over accusations they cheated in proficiency tests. The Air Force said a small number of staff had been texting answers to the routine tests to others, while others had known but failed to report it. The ranks involved range from 2nd lieutenants to captains. The cheating allegations emerged during investigations into alleged drug use by personnel at other bases. Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James told a news conference the cheating involved officers based at the Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana, and related to a

The National Security Agency has implanted software in nearly 100,000 computers around the world--but not in the United States--that allows the U.S. to conduct surveillance on those machines, The New York Times reported Tuesday. The Times cited NSA documents, computer experts and U.S. officials in its report about the use of secret technology using radio waves to gain access to computers that other countries have tried to protect from spying or cyberattacks. The agency has planted most of the software through getting access to computer networks, but has also used a secret technology that allows it entry even to computers

I would not make a good nun. Wimples and self-sacrifice do not suit me. But if I had to be a nun, I would live in Kentucky among the School Sisters of Notre Dame. And there I would teach and do the crossword. This is because, unlike the nuns themselves, I am highly averse to meeting my Maker.

Benefits Street, Channel 4´s hit, fly on the wall documentary about a Birmingham street full of welfare claimants, is a gross distortion of reality. We know this because a group of charity heads has written to the Telegraph to say so.

Baby wipes are leaving children with an itchy, scaly and red rash which is often misdiagnosed as a more serious skin condition, a study revealed today. An allergic reaction to moist wipes is believed to be behind the rash which is being mistaken for conditions such as eczema, impetigo and psoriasis. Dr Mary Wu Chang, a professor of dermatology and pediatrics at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, said that she has seen six children with the mysterious rash over the past two years. The study which Dr Chang co-authored was published on Monday in the medical journal Pediatrics.

Black dogs don´t get as adopted as easily as others animals of other colors. The reason is largely because of some common misconceptions about them. Black dogs are mischaracterized as mean and potentially violent and according to NBC News. Black Dog Syndrome is a phenomenon in which dogs with black fur often go unadopted because of misinformed stereotypes. Black dogs are are euthanized at a much higher rate than dogs with different complexions. Many owners of black dogs say they are sweet, lovable, but also unwanted. The chances of being adopted are poor if you´re a black dog.

Only days after we learned the Obama administration had appointed an Obama donor to head investigations into the IRS targeting of conservative organizations, we now have a leak from law enforcement saying the FBI doesn’t expect to file criminal charges. That’s the gist of a late-breaking story Monday evening in The Wall Street Journal. The story notes that though the investigation may go on another few months, unless other evidence is unearthed, the FBI conclusion will be that the IRS was a “mismanaged bureaucracy” enforcing rules “ it didn’t understand.” Without the evidence, we’re not in a position to say.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee wants to ban the term "RINO" -- "Republican in Name Only" -- in the Republican Party. The former governor complained in a letter to supporters that during a recent social media outreach, he was disturbed that too many Republicans were attacking each other and calling them names. "Many of you used a term that I’d like to see outlawed from the vernacular of the party: RINO," he said, calling it a "pejorative term" that questioned one´s purity. Huckabee pointed out that he got a tweet from someone who complained that he was a RINO, which upset him. "With all

AUSTIN, Texas — In October, Susan, a woman who lives in Willacy County in Texas’ southernmost tip, found out she was pregnant. She is married and has three children, and for a few weeks last fall, she couldn’t afford her birth control. Her condition, to her, was not entirely good news. “I weighed out the pros and cons,” she said. “But I didn´t want to have another baby.” Susan asked her gynecologist about getting an abortion, but the doctor said she didn’t perform the procedure. For women in her area, there was only one place to go: Reproductive Services of Harlingen, where

Now the bill has taken tangible form. Here it is, all 2,860 pages, including explanatory statements: The House is expected to vote on the omnibus spending bill tomorrow, less than 48 hours after copies became available. No one will have read the law; this is government by press release. The bill is advertised at $1.1 trillion, but in the brief time available, Republican Senate staffers have found that it actually spends $18

The case of Jahi McMath brings up numerous critical bioethical issues, especially as we are going into period of health care rationing and fewer choices in our medical care.(snip) In the wake of early enthusiasm for heart transplantation, "brain death" legislation was passed in the 1970´s in all fifty states in the USA, to allow for death to be declared by neurological criteria, rather than the cessation of cardiac activity. This permits surgeons to remove hearts from "brain dead" donors and not be charged with homicide. Despite claims that there has never been a case of a person diagnosed with
