A drug sniffing dog named Nikka is the only certified police member in the town of Vaughn in New Mexico after the police chef resigned.
The police chef Ernest "Chris" Armijo resigned after rumors spread that he wasn't allowed to carry a gun because of his political background.
Here's what a resident said:

Sad…this media darling's weight finally got the best of him.
As reported earlier, Meow, a cat weighing a nearly unBELIEVable 39 pounds, was on his way to purging his bulk after his 87 year old gave him up to a shelter for adoption.
Sadly, Meow has died before he beat his battle with the bulge.
Santa Fe's Animal Shelter & Humane Society director Mary Martin broke the news on Facebook:
I am devastated to share with you that the respiratory distress that Meow was experiencing last week took his life.
Although four different veterinarians worked with Meow, we were unable to stop the progression of what turned out to be pulmonary failure.
Meow's life was cut short at two years old
You'll be missed, Meow!

Margaret Page was hiking through a forest in New Mexico when she lost her way.
She ended up stranded in the woods for three and a half weeks!
At night the temperature would drop down to below freezing.
So she would cuddle with her cat Miya in her sleeping bag to share warmth.
We feel like Miya got the better end of the deal warmth wise.
Miya also ate better too because even though Margaret's food eventually ran out, Miya the cat was able to go hunting.
The two were eventually rescued and now they have a great story to tell and are much closer after all that snuggling.

Was a bear cast in Real Housewives of New Mexico?
Surveillance video near the Governor Susana Martinez mansion caught a bear overturning trash cans over the weekend, looking for food.
The governor thinks the animal was driven out of it's habitat by the states drought - but we think the bear was sent my one of her political rivals. (dramas!)
On Monday, Martinez reminded New Mexicans:
“In order to ensure our own safety and the safety of New Mexico’s wildlife, it is important that we all avoid encouraging animals displaced by the drought conditions and recent fires from visiting our homes and communities… take proactive steps to keep animals away from your home by removing or safeguarding items like pet food, bird feeders, and — as Chuck and I learned this weekend — trash cans.”
See the bear on the surveillance footage above!
