Over $20,000 has been raised for the family of a 4-month-old girl who was attacked by a raccoon inside her home. Ashley Rodgers of Philadelphia said her baby was viciously attacked on Wednesday inside the family’s studio apartment, The Associated Press reported. The family had just moved into the home days prior.
“My daughter was laying on the bed sleeping and I went to take my son to the bathroom. We heard a sound upstairs and we see a raccoon run down the steps,” Rodgers recalled to CBS Philadelphia. “When I finally got to her, she was laying on the floor so it had dragged her off the bed, across the room, and she was bleeding and crying and her whole face was red.”
The baby girl, Journi Black, had to undergo four hours of surgery as a result of the attack, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. She
A newlywed was attacked by a shark during her Caribbean honeymoon and the whole incident was caught on camera.
“I felt a whoosh of water, something clamped down on my arm and I assumed my husband was playing a prank on me,” Sarah Illig told the Daily Mail.
Illig was swimming with the sharks, which apparently was a luxury that the resort that she was staying at with her hubby were offered. The bride said she is lucky to still have her arm. She was injured but in the end, the bite didn’t require stitches. Her husband Evan Carroll caught the incident on camera.
In the video, Illig is seen recoiling in pain after being bitten.

A Minnesota woman who was taking out her trash was attacked by a police dog on the hunt for two burglary suspects—and now she’s suing the dog’s officer, The Washington Post said.
The 5-year-old police dog, Gabe, was allowed to roam on a 20 foot leash at the time of the September attack, according to body cam footage. As the officers chased down the suspects, Gabe ran past a dumpster and bit the right arm of Desiree Collins, 52, refusing to let go.
“Please,” Collins yelled, according to the footage. “Help me!”
Gabe released Collins after 30 seconds of clenching. “What did I do to him?” Collins asked.
“Nothing,” an officer responded. “Just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
But Collins is now filing a federal suit against one of the officers, Thaddeus Schmidt, for the incident.
“What you have here is a completely innocent person taking out their garbage … and a

Rich people will almost always prioritize being rich over any other concern, and Caitlyn Jenner is a textbook case from the presidential election. Jenner was a vocal supporter of Donald Trump, and seemed to think that she could be the voice of reason in his ear on trans issues. Keep her money and protect the rights of LGBTQ people at the same time! Turns out you actually can’t deal with the Devil and Donald Trump cannot hear voice of reason.
This week, Donald Trump personally pressured Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos into rescinding protections for trans students. Much like a child, Trump is still obsessed with where other people go pee-pee. Unfortunately, where people go to the bathroom is a serious matter. Using public facilities that align with your gender identity is a basic right, it’s something that transgender people have been doing
