Dozens Of Turkeys Overrun Staten Island Community

Filed under: BirdsCrazzzzy

New York is a melting pot, where anyone is welcome to come and call it their home.

Unless you're a wild turkey.

Every year, residents of Ocean Breeze say sometimes it gets so packed with turkeys, they can't let their kids outside to play, let alone drive down the street.

Officials say about 100 turkeys wander the area.

Crazy.

The problem started in 1999 when a woman released her 9 turkeys, and they've been multiplying ever since.

Area residents are frustrated because nothing is being done about, also, city law protects wild turkeys from hunters, so there'll be no vigilante justice either.

Looks like the turkeys are there to stay.

We guess the residents and turkeys will just have to learn to coexist.

Baby Doing Well After Being Shot In The Face

baby-recovering-after-being-shot-in-face.jpg

Such a horrible story!

A 21-month-old baby girl was shot in the face this week when she was caught in the middle of crossfire in Staten Island.

Samyah Bailey was sitting in her stroller when "a heated argument broke out between two men." A shot was fired, which hit the poor little girl in her head "setting off panic in the courtyard."

Family friend Indigo Williams grabbed Samyah. The friend said:

"I didn't even think - it was just reaction. I ran to get the baby. I saw the baby there by herself… he was still shooting."

Luckily, she's expected to make a "near complete recovery." She unfortunately lost an eye from the incident, but doctors said it was "kind of a miracle."

Police were able to catch the 19-year-old suspect Damark King, who is accused of shooting her.

During his court hearing, a crowd jeered him as he left his arraignment. A woman yelled:

"Hang yourself with a sheet, b**ch!"

The saddest part is that Samyah's family knew King personally and even gave him a ride home just two weeks earlier.

And this wasn't even his first shooting. He was on parole after serving four years in prison for shooting a teen twice in the chest. He was just released this past January.

Unbelievable. This man clearly needs to be behind bars - and for a very, very long time. We are just so happy that Samyah is alive and is recovering well. Stay strong, little girl! A lot of people are waiting to see you when you get out.

Jersey Shore's Angelina Attacked At A Mall!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooReality TV

Oh dayum!

Jersey Shore's Angelina Pivarnick says she was attacked by a "rowdy group" of young people at a Staten Island mall on Friday, claiming she even has a welt on her head to prove it!

The Staten Island Dump, a name given to her by her Jersey cast mates, claims she was shopping in a Hot Topic, possibly buying some hot pink hair dye or the latest My Chemical Romance t-shirt, when somebody attacked her from behind, apparently striking her in the back of the head.

And not only that, but Angelina's friend and shopping companion also said that someone threw a bottle at Angelina, skimming her lip.

The odd thing is that mall security had a slightly different story, saying that a few people were taking pictures and filming Angelina, when things got out of hand and somebody accidentally hit her in the face.

Angelina is reportedly still talking to police about the incident. Sources say she does have a welt on the back of her head so maybe she is telling the truth?

What do U think?? Mall attack or accidental smack??
