Yeah, Who the Fuck Are These Asshats?

“We need help,” [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration special agent Gregg Houghaboom] said, in tracking down who shot these protected mammals. “We have zero leads…zero responses from the public. We’re hoping someone will have heard something about these cases or saw something on Facebook.”

The pregnant bottlenose dolphin was found dead on Miramar Beach in Choctawhatchee Bay, near Destin around Nov. 21.

A necropsy, or non-human autopsy, revealed the dolphin died of a gunshot wound to her upper right side, likely with a small caliber firearm. She was within weeks of giving birth. The bullet was discovered lodged in the dolphin’s lung. It’s possible the dolphin may have been shot one to two days before it was found dead, NOAA officials said.

A second dolphin was found on Sunday on Orange Beach with a hunting arrow in its side.

It’s the same type of arrow used in deer hunting, Haughaboom said.

Based on preliminary results of a necropsy, it appears the dolphin lived with the arrow in its side for at least five days before eventually dying from a secondary infection caused by the wound.

Whale Dolphin Conservation Society, a worldwide charity whose mission is conservation of whales and dolphins, is offering a $2,500 reward in the pregnant dolphin’s death.

On its online news feed at us.whales.org, it stated it began the reward program last year in response to a large number of “illegal and cruel” acts of humans killing dolphins.

One of the deaths that spurred the society to take action was the dolphin found dead in Perdido Bay in June 2012 with a screwdriver lodged in its head.

Late Tuesday, the Humane Society of the United States and The Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust offered up a $5,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the dolphin killed with an arrow.

According to the Humane Society, this is at least the 13th dolphin shot since 2010.

Asshat-at-Large Beats to Death Bear Cub, Dumps Body in NYC Central Park

Police told AFP that officers were called to Manhattan’s largest public park shortly before 10 am by a warden after the baby bear was found lying in a grassy area.

They said the bear was 3 feet long and transported to the Bronx Zoo.

The discovery baffled officials and disturbed members of the public, who go jogging, relax, walk their dogs and play with their children in Central Park.

No animals have been reported missing from any zoo in the city, leading to speculation that the bear may have been killed elsewhere and its body dumped.

The bear, somehow separated from her mother, was later on Monday transported to New York state department of environmental conservation in Albany for a necropsy.

Because the Internets Told Me to: Man Drives Cross-Country with Girlfriend’s Corpse

And his wheelchair-bound mother in the back:

WJBK Fox 2’s Roop Raj reports a 62-year-old man drove from Michigan to Arizona to pick up a 31-year-old woman, with whom he was in a relationship. The man picked the woman up on May 31 from the mental health facility where she resided in Glendale, Ariz., a suburb of Phoenix.

FOX 2’s Maurielle Lue reports the man has been identified as Ray Tomlinson.

Police believe the woman ingested a number of oxycodone pills after stopping at a gas station in Flagstaff, Ariz. June 1. Warren Police Commissioner Jere Green says she returned to the van and died almost immediately, but it wasn’t until later that the man touched her and realized she was dead.

The man told police he made two additional stops between New Mexico and Oklahoma, where he attempted to ask the woman if she needed to exit the vehicle. After she failed to respond, he determined she was deceased.

Commissioner Green says the man used his cell phone to search what he should do with the woman’s body.

Apparently, what he read on the Internet convinced him to continue driving to Michigan. Warren Det. Sgt. Stephen Mills said the man determined via the Internet that he had 48 hours to present the body to a medical examiner.

The woman’s body remained in the passenger seat for the remainder of the drive. Police say he propped her body up and placed sunglasses on her face and a stuffed animal in her lap.

The man’s 92-year-old mother was also riding in the back of the van in her wheelchair. During the 26-hour drive she was not able to use a restroom. The air-conditioning in the van stopped working soon after they began driving.

Second arrest made in MARTA beating of trans women. GA Voice, 5/30/2014.

MARTA officials announced late Friday its police department had arrested and charged a second person in the attack of two trans women on May 20.

Luther L. Thomas was arrested Thursday. Frederick L. Missick, 35, was arrested today. Both are Atlanta residents and both have been charged with disorderly conduct and being held on $2,500 bond.

…The May 20 incident occurred about 11 p.m. on a southbound train headed to the Oakland City Station. The attack was recorded by several people on the train on their cellphones and someone uploaded their video to a website where it went viral on the internet.

Janell Crosby, one of the victims, told GA Voice she and her friends were being harassed while waiting for the train and then the situation escalated into a violent attack and fight on the train.

…Crosby told the GA Voice she tried to report the attack to a MARTA officer the night of the attack. MARTA officials deny ignoring anyone seeking to make a report.

Crosby and Tyra Woods, who [was] stripped naked during the attack, have left Atlanta in the days after the incident.

In the video, it is clear words are being exchanged and Crosby repeatedly tells Thomas to “Stop it.” Thomas then apparently becomes angered with something Crosby says to him and he begins kicking and punching her. Tyra Woods jumps in to try to help and that’s when Missick punches Woods in the face. The women fight back against their attackers for a little over two minutes before the beating stops. Nobody on the train tried to stop the fight or intervene in any way.

World Gone Bad: Judge Calls 13-Year-Old Girl “sexual predator” Who “egg[ed] on” 41-Year-Old Man

Judge Nigel Peters told Neil Wilson, 41, who pleaded guilty to the abuse, he had also taken account the fact the child looked older.

Wilson lured the teenager to his home in Romford, Essex, where he watched her strip out of her school uniform before she performed a sex act on him.

The abuse did not come to light until the girl confided in a friend who then told police.

During a search of Wilson’s home officers also uncovered a stash of images and videos depicting child abuse and bestiality.

He admitted a string of charges but was handed a suspended sentence at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

…Judge Peters told him: ‘You have come as close to prison as is imaginable.

‘I have taken in to account that even though the girl was 13, the prosecution say she looked and behaved a little bit older.

‘You knew she was not nearly 16 as she said and your plea of guilty recognises that you knew.

‘Allowing her to visit your home is something we have to clamp down on and in normal circumstances that would mean a significant term in prison.

‘On these facts, the girl was predatory and was egging you on.

‘That is no defence when dealing with children but I am prepared to impose a suspension.’

Would this judge and the prosecution have made the same argument if the 13-year old in question were one of their daughters?

I hope none of them have female children. Ever.

Drunk, Truck on Fire, Tree Branches: Man Gone Bad in Burlington Cty.

When police first spotted Michael T. Newmon, 36, he was hanging partially out of the cab window because of a shattered windshield, as he drove east on Brown Avenue toward Route 37 around 3 a.m. Saturday, Lakehurst Police Sgt. Ronald Heinzman said.

The blue box truck Newmon was driving belonged to a local plumbing company and had tree branches caught in it, Heinzman said. The fire and smoke was coming out from below the truck, he said.

…Because the truck was being driven on its rims, James was able to follow the marks left in the road and trace Newmon’s journey about 15 miles to the Route 70/Route 72 circle in Burlington County, Heinzman said. James found the truck had driven across the circle, struck a tree and drove through bushes before continuing east on Route 70, he said.

Woman Throws Puppies from 3d Floor, Kills Both

The Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals received a report Saturday that a guest at the Crystal Inn at 4025 Tulane Ave. had flung two puppies from the third floor. Another guest picked up the dogs and rushed them to an emergency veterinary clinic.

One of the puppies died on the way to the clinic, and the other died while being cared for by the vet, LA/SPCA spokeswoman Jennifer Abbrecht said.

The LA/SPCA’s Cruelty Investigations team identified [Kisha] Carter [25] as a suspect in the puppies’ deaths by interviewing the guest who tried to save the dogs and examining the motel’s security camera footage, Abbrecht added. The LA/SPCA then worked with the New Orleans Police Department to take Carter into custody on Monday night.

Yes, a bag of dogs.

Workers at a beverage distribution warehouse on East 91st Street in Canarsie made the grisly discovery early Saturday morning, finding what looked like an adult pit bull and three puppies inside the burnt garbage bag….

The ASPCA said it was notified by the NYPD and is investigating….

The dogs’ bodies are currently being examined. It’s not clear if they were dead or alive when the fire started.
