Today at Big Cat Rescue Oct 22

A little Halloween horror to groan at that my mother sent me this morning:

A man is walking home alone late one foggy night… passing a grave yard. . .

when behind him he hears:

Bump…

BUMP…

BUMP…

Walking faster, he looks back and through the fog he makes out the image of an upright casket banging its way down the middle of the street toward him.

BUMP…

BUMP…

BUMP…

Terrified, the man begins to run toward his home, as the casket is bouncing quickly behind him…

FASTER…

FASTER…

BUMP…

BUMP…

BUMP…

He runs up to his door, and fumbles with his keys, and he opens the door and rushes in, and slams and locks the door behind him.

However, the casket crashes through his door, with the lid of the casket clapping

clappity-BUMP…

clappity-BUMP…

clappity-BUMP…

on his heels, the terrified man runs upstairs into the bathroom, and the man locks himself in. His heart is pounding; his head is reeling; his breath is coming in sobbing gasps.

With a loud CRASH the casket breaks down the bathroom door.

Bumping and clapping it’s coming toward him.

The man screams and in desperation he reaches for something, anything, but all he can find is a bottle of Robitussin!
In a panic he throws the cough syrup at the casket…

and…

The coffin stops!

A city and two nonprofit groups’ combined commitments more than double the reward offered for information on a brutal mountain lion killing. The City of Calabasas in eastern Los Angeles County has matched the $5,000 reward being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of poachers who killed a mountain lion in the Santa Monica Mountains last month. Two other groups put up an additional $1,700 for a total reward of $11,700.

“Our community is stunned that someone would intentionally kill one of our rare mountain lions,” said Calabasas City Councilmember Mary Sue Maurer. “We are determined to do everything we can to bring the perpetrator to justice.”

The CalTIP Foundation (Californians Turn In Poachers and Polluters) offered the initial $2,500, followed by the Humane Society of the United States and the Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust, who matched that amount.
The Santa Barbara County based Animal Rescue Team, Inc. pledged $1,500 and Mountain Lion Foundation added the additional $200.

The CalTIP Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity that supports anti-poaching and anti-pollution enforcement efforts in California. Tax-deductible donations to support the CalTIP Foundation can be sent to CalTIP Inc., PMB #125, 417 Mace Blvd., Suite J, Davis, CA 95618.

The lion was discovered on Sept. 11, 2011 after DFG and the National Park Service received a call of a dead mountain lion in the Santa Monica Mountains. DFG game wardens determined that the lion did not die of natural causes and opened an investigation.

Mountain lions are designated as a “specially protected mammal” in California, and it is illegal to hunt or trap them.

DFG and the National Park Service are seeking information related to the lion death and the parties responsible.

Anyone with any information regarding this case should call the CalTIP hotline at 1-888-334-2258.
