The residents of Forest Hills, Pennsylvania, are keeping one eye on the skies after a local resident was knocked unconscious by an especially aggressive neighborhood hawk. Eileen Bridge was washing her car when she was “dive-bombed” by what is believed to be a red-tailed hawk. The bird knocked her down and she suffered lacerations to her scalp and ear, along with a wicked shiner. Bridge’s husband also had a close encounter with the hawk just a few days earlier as he was crossing their yard. The hawk is likely one of a pair that nested in a pine tree behind the Bridge’s home this spring.
An garage owner in Scotland (Edinburgh ) has apologized for staging a fake murder scene on Google Street View. Police visited Dan Thompson following a complaint by someone who spotted the hoax online. After spotting the Google camera car from a distance the mechanic laid on the road while his colleague stood over him with a pick axe handle. Thompson said, “There are pictures of men on Google flashing their bums but we thought we would be more classy.”
