Filed under: Legal MattersCrazzzzyFrog

frog fear wins man money

When Paul Marinaccio was a young boy living in Italy, he was once chased by an angry man who was holding several bullfrogs.

A random, terrifying encounter, and enough to leave him scarred for life.

So when developers of a subdivision near his house in upstate New York began draining water onto his property he was in for a real bad time.

Because it was the perfect breeding ground for frogs!

The frogs would swarm his driveway and lawn, forcing him to be a prisoner in his own home.

So he sued the Town of Clarence and the developer in a seven year, $300,000 lawsuit.

He said in court:

New York Area Petco Lets Animals Drown In Flood

Filed under: Sad SadBusiness BlitzPetsAnimal Cruelty

Flooding

Unacceptable!

A Johnson City, New York area Petco let several of its animals drown in a flood.

The Petco stood by and did nothing as the waters rose.

The Susquehana river had begun to flood, prompting evacuations all around, and even another nearby pet store to evacuate its animals by boat. The owner bought a kayak just to save his animals.

The Petco manager would not allow his employees to even temporarily foster the animals.

Petco released a statement on their facebook page, saying:

We are investigating why we did not receive those evacuation orders from the city if this area was known to flood in the past.

Hmm. Funny. Your store was there back when the same flood happened in 2006.

They even said:

An associate went by to check the store at 11:45 p.m. on Wednesday night and there were no signs of flooding or a flood warning in effect.

The store was underwater by Thursday morning.

The Petco is trying to blame the situation on a “backed up drainage system.”

There is no excuse for letting animals die like that.

Millions Of Spiders Cover Pakistan Trees In Webs

Pakistan Tree Spiders

Ewww!

We know every creature serves a purpose on this fantastic planet, but this imagery still gives us the shivers!

Due to excessive flooding in Pakistan in 2010 that submerged a fifth of the country, MILLIONS of spiders took to the trees to escape the rising flood waters.

Pictured above are the trees that they effectively cocooned in spider webs, while seeking shelter from the water.

Unfortunately, spiders weren't the only creature affected by the flooding and 20 million human lives were also disrupted as a result.

However, remember that thing about every creature serving a purpose?

In the areas where spiders took over the trees, there are significantly less malaria-spreading mosquitos that are expected to accompany stagnant water.

Hooray for spiders! Creepy, disgusting spiders. Seriously though…good job spiders.
