In the bizarre and incendiary decision, Justice Richard Danyliuk declared that animals aren't akin to children and therefore can't be handled in the legal system as such. Richard even went as far to compare the dogs to household objects like "butter knives" just to prove his controversial point!
On Monday, the 52-year-old met with young patients and their families at the Children's National Health System in Washington, D.C. — a First Lady tradition since Bess Truman made her holiday visit to the hospital in the 1940s.
This might be the craziest story to come of the 2016 holiday season yet!
Over the past few weeks, Water for Elephants author Sara Gruen has caused MAJOR controversy with a Hatchimals scheme gone terribly awry.
According to the author, the day after Black Friday she spent a whopping $23K on a supply of Hatchimals, the most coveted toy of the season. Each toy cost a little over twice its original price tag of $59.99.
Per Gruen's account, she hoped to markup the gifts for $189 dollars in order to raise money for a charitable cause near and dear to her heart. Apparently the writer has been quietly supporting an unidentified man she believes was wrongly sentenced to life in prison.

Forget Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Iceland has just launched their own version of the hit E! show -- with one HIGHlarious catch. Rather than cast a famous Icelandic family as the stars of the new program, they've started filming four adorable kittens.
Yup, the felines -- named Guðni, Ronja, Briet, and Stubbur -- were all rescued from a local animal rescue shelter and have been placed in an oversized dollhouse where cameras capture all of their movements. Of course, the project has been dubbed Keeping Up With The Kattarshians. AH-Mazing!
By partnering with the Icelandic Cat Protection Society, the viral sensation has helped raise awareness about adoption opportunities in Iceland. Inga Lind Karlsdóttir, the brains behind the whole operation, explained to CNN:
"It took about a year to put together, because we wanted all the animal welfare authorities to approve it. And here we are, a year later, with the first reality TV show starring kittens. All the people who were laughing then aren't laughing now."
In fact, following the initial launch of the project, all four of the kittens named (above) have been adopted! It's said new cats are being prepped to take their places!
