Democrats investigate Pence stay at Trump's Doonbeg hotel Pence has defended as “logical” his decision to stay at Doonbeg. His great-grandmother grew up in Doonbeg and Pence says that he visited the area when he was 22. “I understand the political attacks by Democrats but if you have a chance to get to Doonbeg, you’ll find it’s a fairly small place and the opportunity to stay at Trump [International] in Doonbeg, to accommodate the unique footprint that comes with our security detail and other personnel made it logical,” Pence told reporters here on Tuesday.

'We just stayed at it,' said Derrick. 'Every time he would go down, I would say, "That gator is gone. He's out of here." Then 45 minutes later, he'd pop his head back up. That's the good thing of going with a guide service. They've already seen this happen. This is only my second time going gator hunting ever.'

'We finally got the big hook in him,' said Derrick to Georgia Outdoor News. 'Once we got him with the big rope, they pulled him up beside the boat, and I shot him with a crossbow bolt through the tail just to have him on a buoy in case he broke off, and we could tell where he went.'

Trove of Neanderthal Footprints Provide an Unprecedented Glimpse Into Prehistoric Life.
Scientists in France have discovered hundreds of fossilized footprints belonging to a single group of Neanderthals. At 80,000 years old, the prints chronicle a single, precious moment in the lives of these extinct hominins. Meticulous excavations at the Le Rozel Site in Normandy, France, from 2012 to 2017 have revealed 257 fossilized Neanderthal footprints, an analysis of which is published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. As many as 14 Neanderthal individuals were identified from the impressions, the vast majority of them adolescents and children.
