Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Flyright, 8/5/2014 7:31:56 AM

Authorities are looking into a viral Internet video that shows a man kicking a squirrel off what appears to be the edge of the Grand Canyon.But park officials say the chances of finding the man are slim."Right now they are working on it," park spokeswoman Kirby-Lynn hedlowski said on Mrs on Monday. "They realise that it´s been seen by a lot of people and that there´s some sensitivity to treatment of wildlife." The short video posted on YouTube shows a shirtless, barefoot man in shorts and a straw cowboy hat leaving a trail of food at the edge of a canyon.

If Caddy Shack were made today, Carl would be on the FBI´s pst wanted list for inhumane treatment of gophers. Age with OP that squirrels are a pst and wreak gardens, yards and homes. Should a guy be drop kicking squirrels into the abyss? No. Should the US gooberment waste enormous resources identifying and prosecuting a guy that eliminated a pest? No. Its our money. Spend it wisely. Capture an illegal that just offed one of our border officers and then we might have a little respect for goobernment enforcement.

FTA: Mr Wright said rangers likely would not pursue animal cruelty under a state statute because that would require them to retrieve the squirrel and prove that it was injured or had died.

I´m a true blue conservative, but people who do this kind of thing infuriate and sadden me. If I saw someone do that to an innocent animal, I would be rooting for him to go off the cliff as well. Don´t give me that ´crap´ about my having more compassion for animals than humans. There´s enough humanity and compassion in all of us to be concerned about both. This man is despicable and if I had my way, he´d be facing "prison." Yes, I said it and I mean it! There is no excuse whatsoever for this!

Exactly right, #24.

I can understand that the publicity of the event could cause park officials to respond, if for no other reason than to show that anyone displaying that type of cruelty of deliberately harming or killing park animals would be held accountable. If not, many other similar viral videos would likely follow - and, they may anyway considering what some people count as fun these days.

I don´t agree with what this guy did, but normally, I wouldn´t support his prosecution for it - as others have noted, it´s basically a rat.

However, that park, and all the squirrels in it, are OUR property. If I make Brunswick stew out of my squirrel, it´s fine. If you come onto my land for your squirrel-killing needs, it´s trespassing, theft, and vandalism.

I think squirrels know how to fall without getting hurt or they wouldn´t be chasing each other around 100ft up in trees. They have a terminal velocity less than that of a cat which can land on its feet at terminal velocity and survive it (if it´s not too fat).

Thank you #16. So what if its a rodent. They are one of God´s little creatures too! The other night, I went to feed my kitties and Little One was playing with a mouse. Since he was still alive and in good shape, I tried to rescue it. The little guy bit my finger twice, but I held no animosity toward it. Poor thing was scared. Can´t blame him. Among the 9 cats trying to supplement their dinner, he was able to get away.

I don´t believe in cruelty for the sake of entertainment. Survival is one thing...idiot getting his jollies is another. Why not punt the fool over the cliff? He´s probably a Democrat anyway.

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his

Behind the rotten culture is arrogance. After uniformed officers failed to take out 42-year-old Omar J. Gonzalez when he hopped over the fence and ran into the White House, the Secret Service issued a statement saying the officers “showed restraint.” The statement provoked laughter among senior FBI officials. But in its arrogance, the Secret Service thought it could get away with issuing such an outrageous claim and the public would accept it.With similar hubris, the agency leaves the doors to the White Horse unlocked. The idea is that the vaunted Secret Service can handle any problem and can waive the

Accountability: Turns out the Secret Service — which has one job to do — let a knife-wielding intruder all the way into the East Room of the White House. Can´t anyone in government do anything right these days? Time was when the Secret Service seemed an exemplar of professionalism and dedication, an agency with a focused mission and largely immune from the bureaucratic bumbling inherent to big government. In recent years, it´s seemed more like Animal House. The intruder blew past one guard and was stopped only by an off-duty officer. And this was one of hundreds of apparent security breaches.

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which
