Police in Wisconsin Train Their K9 Unit in a Haunted House, WISN in Racine Wisconsin reported.
When you come across a police dog out and about in the world it’s sometimes impossible to resist petting it, but that’s a no-no. When these dogs are on the job as part of a K9 unit they’re all business and focused on the task at hand with nerves of steel that not even treats or head pats can distract them from. The training that goes into them being able to do this is more intense than you would imagine and for the Racine Police Department in Wisconsin, it involves some unusual methods.
According to local news source WISN, the Racine K9 unit is taken to an abandoned haunted house complex in Mount Pleasant to desensitize such things as loud noises, unpredictable situations, and flashing lights. If you’ve ever found yourself getting through a particularly scary haunted house and thought “man, if I could do that, I can do anything,” then you understand how these brave dogs feel at the end of their training.
Destination America shared recently that California Residents claim Chupacabra is stalking their pets.
Some people in Southern California claim their pets are in danger. And the danger is coming in the form of a Chupacabra who is stalking and attacking pets in the area.
Cary Shuker told the Press-Enterprise that he shooed away a hairless creature from near his home in Riverside. He described it as two feet longer “than the biggest coyote you’ve ever seen” and with a tail like a rat.
The creature got angry and hissed and growled and he believes it was a Chupacabra. But what is a Chupacabra?
Also known as the “goat sucker”, the Chupacabra is essentially a vampire creature that feeds on pets and livestock.
Reports claim it stands about four to five feet tall and has long claws, glowing red eyes, and spikes down its back. While some believe that Chupacabra sightings date back to the 1970’s or earlier, the monster actually first appeared in 1995 in Puerto Rico.
And many are saying this isn’t real. Loren Coleman, director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Maine, said it was likely a coyote with mange or a similar much more common animal.
“DNA results prove these are 100 percent canid (coyotes, foxes, dogs and red wolves), usually with mange, Coleman said.
Still you never know. You just may want to keep your pets inside just in case.
The HuffPost shared that NASA responded to a 9 year old who applied to be a Guardian of the Galaxy. The kid’s application to become “planetary protector” went viral.
Fourth-grader Jack Davis is prepared to take on the interstellar role of planetary protector, and NASA would be happy to use his skills…some day.
Jack, 9, submitted a cover letter to the agency that went viral after a family friend posted a photo of it on Reddit. Jack signed the letter “Guardian of the Galaxy,” and listed some reasons why he thought he’d be a good fit for NASA’s new position: He has seen just about every space and alien movie he can, he’s good at video games, and he’s young so he has time “to learn to think like an alien.”
“One of the reasons is my sister says I am an alien also,” Jack wrote.
Unfortunately the job requirements to be a planetary protector for NASA aren’t quite the same as they are to be a special agent on TV, according to the response Dr. James L. Green, NASA’s director of the planetary science division, sent back to Jack.
“We are always looking for bright future scientists and engineers to help us, so I hope you will study hard and do well in school,” Green wrote in a letter posted online. “We hope to see you here at NASA one of these days!”
The six figure position at NASA is actually about protecting other planets from us humans and all our foreign germs – it involves collecting specimens from across the solar system and bringing them back to Earth.
