Scooby Witness In Murder Trial

A dog named Scooby has created legal history by appearing as a witness in a murder case. The animal’s 59-year-old owner had been found hanging from the ceiling of her Paris flat. Police believe it was suicide but her family say that it was murder.

The dog dunnit!

The dog was in the flat at the time of the death. During a preliminary hearing in the city, the pet was led into the witness box by a vet. A suspect in the case was presented to the dog, to see how it reacted.

Old Mr Anorak believes Lassie would have been more up for this caper…

It is said to have ‘barked furiously’. The aim was to decide if there was sufficient evidence to launch a full murder inquiry.

I Am Not A Number, I Am A Free Goat

A minister in the Democratic Republic of Congo has ordered a Kinshasa jail to release a dozen goats, which he said were being held there illegally.

Deputy Justice Minister Claude Nyamugabo said he found the goats just in time during a routine jail visit.

The beasts were due to appear in court, charged with being sold illegally by the roadside.

Can’t they eat their way free?
