Eerie Dog Meat Farm Photo Shows Pile of Collars Belonging to Animals Electrocuted to Death
Animal rescuers saved 65 dogs, including several puppies, from the dog meat farm where canines were brutally slaughtered in front of each other.Among the images is a moving photo featuring a large pile of collars in the killing area of the farm, each of which represents one of the countless dogs that were slaughtered at the site on Jindo Island.
Paul Curling woke up Thursday morning to his daughter shouting, "there's zebras in our backyard!"
He thought it was a dream — until he looked out and saw three zebras roaming his playground in Maryland.
For about a week, the zebras have been scouring for food in neighborhoods in Prince George County in search of food, water, and sometimes a pool to dip into. Residents have postedof the zebras while local officials struggle to catch them.
“You can’t hunt them down. They’re just too fast, they run, they won’t let you get near them,” Rodney Taylor, chief of Prince George county’s animal services department, told.
Biden tells storm-ravaged Louisiana: 'I know you're hurting'
LAPLACE, La. (AP) — Giant trees knocked sideways. Homes boarded up with plywood. Off-kilter street signs. Less than a week after Hurricane Ida battered the Gulf Coast, President Joe Biden walked the streets of a hardhit Louisiana neighborhood and told local residents, “I know you're hurting, I know you're hurting.” Biden pledged robust federal assistance to get people back on their feet and said the government already had distributed $100 million directly to individuals in the state in $500 checks to give them a first slice of critical help. Many people, he said, don't know what help is available because they can't get cellphone service.
The zebras escaped from a 300-acre farm owned by Jerry Holly, who is licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to keep 39 zebras,. The zebras escaped shortly after they were transported to the farm from Florida.

Week after Hurricane Ida's landfall, hundreds of thousands still without power
One week after Ida made landfall in Louisiana, hundreds of thousands are still without power. For some, it may take until the end of September.One week after Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana, hundreds of thousands of residents were still without power, and the state confirmed a 13th storm-related death Sunday.
When Curling spotted the zebras he quickly called other neighbors and they called animal control. He's used to seeing deer, squirrels and foxes in the area, but never zebras.
"We all did a double take. We couldn't believe there was a zebra playing in our playground," Curling told USA TODAY. "I couldn't believe my eyes."
