  • Dog feared to have cancer had actually eaten four teddy bears... but vet didn't realise until midway through operation 

    Golocal247.com news

    A dog feared to cancer had actually eaten four teddy bears, but the vet did not realise until halfway through the operation. Eight-year-old St Bernard Maisy was taken for a CT scan after she was taken ill, which showed a mass on her spleen and an unusually full stomach, seemingly showing she had not digested her food properly. Her owner, Jane Dickinson, from Dewsbury in West Yorkshire, feared the worst as she took her pet to Paragon Veterinary Referrals in Wakefield. It would not be unusual for Maisy, an elderly dog, to have cancer at her advanced age. However, vet surgeon Nick Blackburn ruled out any fatal disease when he carried out the operation to remove Maisy’s spleen and found her stomach was full of soft toys. Maisy is now reportedly 'loving life' Credit:  Paragon Vet Referrals / SWNS.com He said : "It's fair to say this was not something we were expecting to find! We all know certain dogs enjoy chewing things they shouldn't but managing to devour four full teddy bears is quite a feat. "I know Jane was worried about Maisy as she is quite old for a St Bernard, so we were naturally delighted the operation was such a success and we were able to return a happy, healthy dog to the Dickinsons.” Her owner said she had never seen the gentle giant chewing or eating toys, but that now the operation has been completed Maisy is “loving life”. An x-ray showing the teddy bears within the stomach. Credit: Paragon Vet Referrals / SWNS.com Ms Dickinson explained: "When Maisy went in I did think 'is she coming out?' but she is loving life now - it's like she's got her youth back. "The toys weren't even hers! She will steal the chihuahuas' toys and play with them but I've never seen her trying to chew them. Her eating habits had been completely normal. "I didn't even recognise one of the toys - my brother also keeps chihuahuas and it turns out it belonged to his dog." Maisy has since made a full recovery from her operation and a histology report has shown no signs of cancer.

  • Judge rejects Missouri governor's bid to dismiss criminal case

    Golocal247.com news

    A St. Louis judge on Thursday dealt Missouri Governor Eric Greitens another legal setback in the sex scandal embroiling his office, refusing to dismiss a criminal invasion of privacy charge stemming from an admitted extramarital affair. The decision by Judge Rex Burlison paved the way for the single-count felony case against Greitens, a Republican under mounting pressure from both parties to resign, to proceed to trial even as he comes under scrutiny for unrelated accusations of computer tampering. Greitens' lawyers last week sought to throw out the privacy case on grounds of prosecutor misconduct, saying St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, a Democrat, had tried to conceal video evidence supporting the governor and his assertions that the affair was entirely consensual.

  • Who shot Lewis Carroll’s dodo? Forensic scans reveal mystery death

    Golocal247.com news

    The world’s most famous dodo, which inspired Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, met an untimely and murderous end, scientists have discovered. The Oxford Dodo is the most well-preserved example of the extinct bird on Earth and still contains soft tissue and DNA which could be used one day to resurrect the species. It was always thought the Oxford Dodo survived the fate of its kin, and was brought back alive from Mauritius, ending up as an exotic curiosity on the streets of London.  Dodos survive such as this one auctioned in West Sussex in 2016 but only the Oxford dodo still has DNA Credit:  Gareth Fuller In 1638 the MP Sir Hamon L’Estrange wrote that he had paid a penny to view a ‘strange fowle’ near Lincoln Inns Fields, claiming it ate stones as big as nutmegs to aid digestion. After it died naturally it ended up in the collection of John Tradescant, gardener of King Charles II, whose curiosities were passed to Elias Ashmole, who used them to found Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum.  Finally in 1860 the remains of the bird moved to the Oxford University of Natural History. Scans show lead shot in the dodo's head  Credit: University of Warwick But when researchers at the University of Warwick were asked to scan the head of the dodo, they found clear evidence of pellets in its skull. Subsequent analysis of the material and size of the particles revealed that they were lead shot, typically used to hunt wildfowl during the 17th century. The clear implication is that the bird either never made it to Britain alive or was shot sometime after its arrival. Professor Paul Smith, Director of Oxford University Museum of Natural History, said: “We thought we knew the specimen, so it was a really great surprise when the researchers came and it had lots of millimetre diameter lead pellets embedded within the skin and the bone. It rapidly became apparent this was lead shot from a gun. “Regarding where it was shot, the truth is we don’t know but it raises more questions. If it was shot in London, why? And if it was shot in Mauritius, how did they preserve the specimen?” The dodo species was first discovered by the Dutch in 1598, but was recorded as extinct by 1662. Although it was originally thought that hunters were to blame, revisionist histories suggest that dogs and rats from ships ate the eggs, wiping out the species. However the new evidence may show the bird was hunted after all.  Dodos became extinct in the 1860s  The Oxford dodo is not just scientifically significant but also culturally important. The mathematician Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) would regularly visit the Oxford University Museum of Natural History with his young muse Alice Liddel, and wrote the bird into Alice's Adventures in Wonderland as a caricature of himself. It also appears in Hilaire Belloc’s Bad Child’s Book of Beasts. Too precious to be on permanent display it remains in storage and is moved every few weeks to discourage theft. The team had originally scanned the dodo’s head hoping to create a three dimensional skull which would reveal more about its evolutionary past and also how it fed. But the results uncovered something far more interesting. The dodo is the only one in the world with soft tissue and DNA still present  Credit: The University of Warwick Prof Mark Williams: “We were astounded to find that when we looked at the scans in close detail there were some mysterious pellets buried in the back of its head. The dodo had actually been shot. “Although the results were initially shocking, it was exciting to be able to reveal such an important part of the story in the life of the world’s most famous extinct bird. “ It just goes to show that when you are carrying out investigative research, you never quite know what you are going to find.” The team now plan to use forensic analysis usually reserved for crime scenes to work out where the the bird was killed. Prof Smith added: “The Oxford Dodo is the iconic representation of dodos, it’s the most complete, it’s the only one we can get DNA form. “It is the only one we can do molecular analysis to work out relationships and potentially to reconstruct the genome of dodos. “The next step is to do some chemical analysis of the lead shot and using those we may be able to trace which particular orefield the lead came form and therefore what country it was mined in and what country the shot was made in so we could then determine who killed the dodo.”
