Meanwhile, In the World of Animals

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - More than 100 poodles were taken from a home in western New York after living in what officials called deplorable conditions.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - An abandoned adult alligator is loose somewhere in the Southern Tier. Another was captured in Wayland on Friday by an animal control officer after the alligator frightened a local dog.

RANDOLPH, Vt. (AP) - A Williamstown man is dead after colliding with a moose on Interstate 89. Thirty-nine-year-old Glen J-Murphy was driving south on the interstate in Randolph early Wednesday when his truck hit a moose.

UPDATE: A CapitalNews 9 staffer, who shall remain nameless, urged me to add this animal story:

ENUMCLAW, WA - King County sheriff's detectives are investigating the owners of an Enumclaw-area farm after a Seattle man died from injuries sustained while having sex with a horse boarded on the property. The county Medical Examiner's Office ruled that the death was accidental and the result of having sex with a horse.

And this one, for God's sake:
