TOP Five Strange But True Stories:

Football player remorseful over pigeon’s death

Argentine soccer player Gaston Aguirre killed a pigeon with a single shot – right off his foot. “I kicked the ball and, poor pigeon,” the San Lorenzo defender said.“Now I will be remembered as the pigeon killer.”

Woman accused of trying to sell ‘gothic kittens’

Three kittens with ear, neck and tail piercings were removed from a home by humane officers.
One of the officers from the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Luzerne County said the pierced kittens were being sold as “gothic kittens” on an Internet auction site. “This is a first,” said Officer Carol Morrison. “It’s unbelievable anybody would do this to kittens.”

Would-be robbers ‘overly prepared’

An alert security guard chased two thieves and sat on them until police arrived. Herman Sakaria used his unusual restraint method after an attempted robbery in New Zealand on Tuesday. The Whangaparaoa-based security guard was heading home when he saw two youths covering their car plates…

A Korean man and woman came out after the youths. “The woman started hitting them with a flyswat she was so angry,” says Mr Sakaria. By sheer coincidence Mr Sakaria says the mother of one of the youths turned up. “The youth said: ‘Oh s#%t, there’s my mum’.”
