Parents learned their 3-year-old daughter was missing when they saw a news broadcast reporting she'd been found in a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant.

Employees of the Bel Air, Md. pizzeria discovered the girl, Harmony, was by herself when she told a worker that she was thirsty at 8 p.m on Sunday. The manager called police after searching the premises for a parent or guardian. Harford County Sheriff's deputies waited with Harmony in the restaurant until 9:30 p.m., but no one showed up to get her, according to a press release from the department.

Harmony arrived at the restaurant with a large group of four adults and 10 children. The pizza party broke up around 8 p.m., but apparently none o

Rep. John Fleming (R-LA)Republican House Rep. John Fleming of Louisiana has made himself the target of online ridicule after confusing a spoof article about Planned Parenthood as a factual news report, according to Politico.

An article posted to the Onion’s website on May 18, 2011 is headlined, “Planned Parenthood Opens $8 Billion Abortionplex.” Of course, as millions of readers already know, the Onion is a satirical news organization, which makes up fake parody stories about real people, places and things.

The fictitious article opens with the obviously made-up lead sentence: “Planned Parenthood announced Tuesday the grand opening of its long-planned $8 billion Abortionplex, a sprawli

Wheeler’s police profile page ( German Shepherd rescued from a New York State animal shelter has gone on to become one of the state’s top crime fighting dogs.

Known as Sgt. Harry J. Wheeler, the K-9 star who has helped find six bodies in police investigations was found wandering the streets of Brooklyn as an abandoned pup eight years ago, according to Petside. Wheeler was rescued by Liz Keller, who works for the Glen Wild Animal Rescue. Petside writes that when Keller noticed Wheeler’s keen perception and protective nature, she thought he would make a good police dog. He then went through a 20-week training course with the New York State Police canine division, and he se

Courtney gave what seemed to be a sincere apology on last night's show of The Bachelor.

But the key question during a particularly lively episode of The Women Tell All, was the gripe fest that routinely airs just before The Bachelor season finale.

Oh sure, we got to hear grandma’s girl Brittney call yappy Samantha Levey a Chihuahua and watch all of the women shoot daggers — again — at interloper Shawntel Newton and hear Samantha call Blakeley Shea a bully, but those were just snacks.

For the main course, Chris Harrison served up Courtney Robertson on a platter to the other women.

The vitriol goes deeper than just the fact that Courtney is the one we’ll likely see become engaged

Dorothea Taylor, 85, defended her husband from an angry moose by grabbing a shovel to beat off the crazed animal in Alaska.

The couple were out walking their dogs when the mammal ran down a hill and launched a ferocious attack on her husband George Murphy, 82.

When she heard the barks of her dogs, Mrs Taylor ran to the boot of her pick-up truck where she grabbed a shovel to warn off the angry moose.

Her husband described his wife’s actions as ‘heroic’ after she repeatedly hit the moose over the head with the shovel to save him from a vicious stamping. The retired engineer told Anchorage Daily News: ‘He spotted me and he started to come right after me. So I was trying to get to th

Kittens Fred and Ned are no ordinary cats – they are polydactyl cats. While most cats have 18 toes, Fred has an extra 10 digits and Ned has eight.

The four-month-old kittens are currently being looked after by Cats Protection in Gosport, Hampshire.

Branch volunteer Kate Stapleford said: ‘These two kittens were in poor condition when they arrived but with veterinary attention and a lot of TLC from their fosterer, Fred and Ned are now thriving.

Ms Stapleford added: ‘Fred and Ned are special in that as well as extra toes on the front paws, Fred has extra toes on his back paws. Most cats have four toes on each back paw and five toes on each front paw.

‘Although they look a little un

Officials have banned an artist from publicly slaughtering chickens in eastern Kansas, saying the proposed art installation would amount to animal cruelty.

Lawrence's Assistant City Attorney Chad Sublet said Tuesday that artist Amber Hansen told him she "intends to abide by the city ordinance." Violating the animal cruelty ordinance could lead to a fine of up to $1,000 and six months in jail. Even keeping the chickens on private land would require her to meet other city codes on animal care.

Sublet said Hansen is considering alternatives to draw attention to the process of slaughtering animals, including a public sculpture.

Through the project, called "The Story of Chickens: A Revo

Forget the three little pigs hiding from the big bad wolf. These six little pigs have found a new friend in a maternal French bulldog named Baby.

The Lehnitz animal sanctuary outside Berlin said Baby took straight to the wild boar piglets when they were brought in Saturday, three days old and shivering from cold.

Sanctuary worker Norbert Damm said Wednesday that, as soon as the furry striped piglets were brought in, Baby ran over and started snuggling them and keeping them warm, even though they're almost her size.

The 8-year-old bulldog has stayed right by their side since then, making sure they're OK, Damm said.

"She thinks they're her own babies," Damm said.

It isn't the f

No, this is a zombie or vampire tale involving a tail-wagging pouch but a story of an unexplained and miraculous canine recovery. While playing in the family’s backyard, Scamp the terrier-Shih Tzu mix puppy made a run for it. Escaping under the fence, he ran into the street where he was hit by a car.

Reta McKinley was preparing to explain to her 6-year old twin grandchildren that their puppy has gone to heaven. When they found Scamp, he wasn’t moving. His eyes were fixed and he was bleeding. They were unable to detect any signs of him breathing. McKinley’s husband wrapped the pooch in a blanket and left him outside, tucked away under a wheelbarrow to keep other animals away.
