English Soccer Player Pleads For Return Of Stolen Dog

English Soccer Player Pleads For Return Of Stolen Dog An English soccer player took to Instagram overnight to plead for the return of his dog that was apparently stolen from his West Hollywood home in a burglary. In an Instagram story, Daniel Sturridge said he left the home in the 2300 block of Mount Olympus Drive for a couple of hours Monday night. When he returned, it appeared that someone had broken into his home, taken undisclosed items from the home and the soccer star’s dog. “How can you break into a house in LA and take somebody’s dog,” Sturridge asked in an Instagram post.

Giant jellyfish ‘as big as a human’ spotted by divers off Cornwall coast . Rupert Kirkwood, who is known as The Lone Kayaker, wrote on his blog earlier this year: “There are more barrel jellyfish around the coast of SW England than I have ever seen in 15-plus years of sea kayaking.

A giant jellyfish the size of a human has stunned a diver off the south-western coast of England.

The incredible creature -- a barrel jellyfish -- was spotted near Falmouth by broadcaster and biologist Lizzie Daly, who described the encounter as "breathtaking."

"What an unforgettable experience," she added. "I know barrel jellyfish get really big in size but I have never seen anything like it before!"

"It was the best thing I've ever done," she said in a video of the meeting.

Daly, who was exploring the waters as part of her campaign "Wild Ocean Week," added the jellyfish was a big as she is.

Barrel jellyfish are the largest species of jellyfish in British seas, but it is extremely rare to spot one of the size Daly did.

They typically grow up to one meter (3.2 feet) and weight up to 25 kilograms (55 lbs), according to The Wildlife Trusts. Barrel jellyfish are frequently washed up on the UK's coastlines during the summer months.
