LONDON (AP) — A British fisherman had to be rescued from a cliff face after fleeing an aggressive colony of more than 50 gray seals and their young pups, the coast guard said Monday.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency said the fisherman was walking on a beach Friday near Green Stane cliff in southeastern Scotland when he came across the seals, who became agitated and aggressive. He climbed up a cliff face to escape but became trapped before reaching the top and had to call for emergency aid Friday night.

The Maritime agency said it had a rescue team at the site within 20 minutes but it took about two hours to set up and use the rope rescue system to bring the fisherman down to the beach. Officials say the fisherman, who was wearing waterproof clothing and using a headlamp for illumination, clung to the cliff for several hours before he was brought down.

Rescue workers then summoned a waiting lifeboat, which picked its way through the seal colony and took the fisherman to safety in Eyemouth harbor, 370 miles (nearly 600 kilometers) north of London. He was treated for exposure to the cold.

Coast guard officer Jonathan Mustard said people walking along the coast should beware of seals protecting their young and make sure to have a fully charged phone so they can summon help if needed.

“Aggressive seals are not a common occurrence and in this case they may have been protecting or defending their natural habitat and their young,” he said.


LAS CRUCES, NM (KRQE) - Hunting accidents are nothing new, but this one is: A 74-year-old man is in the hospital after his dog shot him during a hunting trip. 

After the shooting, Sonny Gilligan managed to call 911. Dona Ana County deputies heard quite the story as they saved his life. 

"He was done, he would've died. I can't say enough about the Sheriff's deputies, because without them my dad was dead," said Mark Gilligan. 

Mark says it's normal for his dad to take his three dogs, Charlie, Cowboy, and Scooby, hunting for jackrabbits near Las Cruces. In fact, he says his dad feeds the trio the rabbits as a treat. 

His dad says he was sitting in the truck, his rifle in the backseat, when Charlie's paw got caught in the trigger. 

The bullet went through the seat and Sonny was shot in the back. Even though Charlie could've killed him, Sonny says he's forgiven him. 

"He spoils his dogs, you know. He calls them his boys. He's very fond of his animals," said Mark. 

After the accident, Mark says all three dogs were taken into a county shelter. He says even in critical condition, his dad's main concern was getting his dogs out of what he called, "doggie jail." 

Sonny Gilligan was flown to El Paso from the shooting scene. He's recently been moved out of intensive care.



FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A Goodwill worker collecting clothes and other items at a Texas sorting center was surprised to find an albino python clinging to the side of a bin.

The python was huddled in a pile of clothes when the worker discovered it Thursday at the center in Fort Worth.

Manager James Murphy says it's not clear if the snake slithered away from its owner and was accidentally dropped off or if its donation was intentional.

The python had a serpentine journey: It arrived at one of nearly 40 Goodwill donation drop-offs in the area before being transported to the Fort Worth sorting center.

Goodwill staffers will care for the python until the owner claims it or a permanent home is found.


IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — A pack llama that escaped from a guided hike in southern Yellowstone National Park in August was rescued by a Montana outfitter last weekend, just days before most of the park's entrances were to close for winter preparations.

"I just had to help him," Susi Huelsmeyer-Sinay with Yellowstone Llamas in Bozeman, Montana, said Friday. "He was abandoned."

Wilderness Ridge Trail Llamas owner Kirstin Baty of Idaho Falls, Idaho, tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide that Ike ran off after guides loosened his halter because it irritated the spot of a previously abscessed tooth.

"Ike slipped out of the halter completely," Baty said, "because he's sneaky, and he knows he can."

It was the second time he'd escaped in the park, but the first foray was less than a couple of weeks in duration, Baty said.

After his August escape, the 12- to 15-year-old, 350-pound llama evaded capture attempts for about a month, including special treats and efforts to lure him in with other llamas.

"A lot of groups were looking for him," said Beau Baty, who owns Wilderness Ridge with his wife. "Rangers were looking for him on their days off. It just pushed him deeper into the backcountry."

They decided to wait until the weather drove Ike out of the backcountry.

In the meantime, park visitors reported seeing some strange wildlife. It was one of those reports that fellow Yellowstone concessionaire Hueslmeyer-Sinay heard about on Oct. 24.

"I contacted the park service and with the blessing of the park service I came to Yellowstone last Sunday to check out Ike and see if I could entice him to come home with me or to leave the park," Hueslmeyer-Sinay told the Post Register of Idaho Falls.

She brought three llamas and headed to the last known sighting of Ike, near Lewis Lake, southwest of Yellowstone Lake.

"All of a sudden, there he was coming up and greeting the three llamas, who in turn greeted him," she said. "These guys are herd animals. They need their own kind."

She said she turned around with her llamas and Ike followed, eventually getting into a trailer with them for the trip back to Bozeman.

Beau Baty said Ike's rescuer is going to keep him.


YORK, S.C. (AP) — A South Carolina courthouse has been evacuated after bedbugs were found there for the second time in just over two weeks.

York County Clerk of Court David Hamilton said specially trained dogs found evidence of bedbugs in both courtrooms of the criminal court building Thursday as well as in offices on both floors.

Hamilton told The Herald of Rock Hill officials decided to close the entire building for safety as a stronger chemical treatment is applied.

Bedbugs were found in parts of the building on Oct. 16.

Hamilton says the areas were treated then with heat, and testing afterward found no bugs.


(Pensacola News Journal) A drunken, shirtless man allegedly barged into several Pensacola homes looking for a fight before running into a fence and knocking himself out, according to an Escambia County Sheriff's Office arrest report.

Christopher Doyle Norman, 32, was arrested Tuesday night for numerous offenses including home invasion, battery, burglary, larceny and criminal mischief.

Norman allegedly began his rampage by kicking open a gate in the 2000 block of Langley Avenue, approaching a woman who was sitting outside her mobile home and punching her in the side of the head, the report said.

He allegedly then damaged a ladder and the exterior door of the residence before moving onto the home next door. 

There, Norman allegedly fell through the open front door. One of the residents grabbed a hammer and ordered Norman to leave, and he allegedly left the trailer park yelling he would "come back and burn the trailer down," the report said.

Norman allegedly went to a nearby apartment complex and began knocking on an apartment door. When the resident answered, a shirtless Norman allegedly began yelling at the resident to "fight him."

When the resident closed and locked the door, Norman allegedly began to ram the door with his shoulder causing damage to the door and frame.

Norman allegedly moved on to another residence where he walked in through the closed but unlocked door and began yelling for the apartments' two male occupants to fight him. He allegedly began chasing the victims around a table, and unable to catch them, threw a lamp at them and missed.

According to the report, Norman grabbed a slice of pizza before chasing one of the victims into a bedroom and snatching a landline phone from a victim who was attempting to dial 9-1-1. Norman allegedly swung the phone at the victim several times, hitting him once in the back of the head. 

Norman chased the man outside and around the apartment complex before running into a chain fence, knocking it down and passing out on top of it, the report said.

Deputies arrived on scene to find Norman unresponsive and seemingly under the influence of alcohol. They were able to handcuff Norman without further incident, though he allegedly made vague threats to deputies during his arrest.

The woman who was punched in the head declined to be transported to a hospital, though she told deputies she had a brain tumor and would need a thorough medical examination. There were no other major injuries reported at the scene, according to the report.

Norman is currently being held in Escambia County Jail on $262,500 bond.


(Huffington Post) She's a cheese whiz.

Watch a Wisconsin woman wearing a cheesehead and carrying her young daughter name 27 cheeses in 30 seconds in a fan contest during a Milwaukee Bucks basketball game on Sunday.

"There is nothing more Wisconsin than this," The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel noted.

Jamie Kiesl, a 35-year-old human resources manager for Kohl's, could have stunk up the arena under pressure ? Bucks player Sterling Brown named 17 in a prerecorded segment, a pretty impressive showing. 

But there were no Swiss-cheese-size holes in Kiesl's game, even if she drew a blank at the end. Hey, no parm, no foul.

Asked how she knew so many, Kiesl replied, "I've lived in Wisconsin my whole life."

Kiesl received a ball signed by Brown for her effort, Johnny Watson, the team's director of live entertainment and programming, told HuffPost.

"She's by far been the best contestant we've had," he said.

The Bucks (8-1) remained among the big cheeses in the NBA with a 144-109 rout of the Sacramento Kings.


Nov. 5 (UPI) -- A 106-year-old Arizona woman was treated to a surprise birthday party at her favorite restaurant -- Taco Bell.

Myrtis Jewel Painter was treated to a party with family and friends Sunday at a Taco Bell in Phoenix, where employees decorated the restaurant in honor of the regular customer.

Gleg Gladden, who owns the Taco Bell franchise, said he wanted to honor Painter, who has been a regular customer at the location for the past eight years.

"At 106? And they want to come to Taco Bell? And hang out with me?" Gladden told KPHO/KTVK-TV. "It's just amazing."

Painter dined on a taco and an enchilada for her birthday meal.

"I think Taco Bell is a good place to come to, I really do," Painter said.

Painter, who was born in east Texas in 1912, has lived in Phoenix since 1932.

A Florida man who celebrated his 100th birthday with a party at his local Chick-fil-a eatery in September was awarded free food for the rest of his life by restaurant officials. Stephen Bellissimo, who has been a regular at the location for 20 years, said he plans to visit the Chick-fil-a every day to take advantage of his free meals.


A Kentucky man was arrested Saturday at horse racing's famous Breeder's Cup after he allegedly tried to ride a horse onto the track at Churchill Downs.

Michael Wells-Rody, 24, "was manifestly under the influence of alcoholic beverages," the Lexington Herald-Leader reported, citing Kentucky State Police.

Police claim Wells-Rody, of Georgetown, was drunk when he "snuck into a restricted area he was not authorized to be in" and mounted a horse at the track in Louisville.

The man rode the horse out into the track area, and when officials asked him to dismount and leave the area, Wells-Rody "became loud and disorderly by causing an alarm to Churchill staff members."

He was taken into custody and charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct, according to the news outlet.


Nov. 5 (UPI) -- Police in Scotland are trying to find the owner of a large boar that was found wandering a stretch of highway.

The Dumfries Galloway Police Division said in a Facebook post that members of the public contacted authorities late Sunday to report a large, tan boar running loose on the A76 highway, near Kirkconnel.

Police corralled the porcine jaywalker in a field and discovered it had tags on its ears identifying it as being named "Toby."

"Police are eager to trace its owner due the boar having a skill for escape!" the Facebook post said. "Is your farm missing a large boar?"
