Four people killed by crocodiles within a month in Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe's rains have made sure that crocodiles are on the move, with four people having been killed by crocodiles in one river in less than a month.

The latest victim is an 11-year-old boy who was killed while swimming in the Kana River with two friends.

Conservation groups are warning that heavy rains and flooded rivers have resulted in crocodiles turning up in places where they're least expected.

Village headman Muziwakhe Ndlovu told the state-run Chronicle that the boy was the fourth person to die from crocodile attacks in that river this month.


Woman hospitalized after family pit bull attacks her in Foley, Alabama

The five-year-old dog was described as a member of the family, raised from a puppy but Monday afternoon it attacked the one person who may have loved him the most.

"My pit bull attacked my wife for no reason, bit a big hole in her side. If the law don't get him, he's a dead dog here."

The dog Milton Weeks raised from a 6-month-old puppy, crated and taken out of the house. Half an hour earlier.
his wife was airlifted to a trauma center after the dog attacked. "I had to pick up an electric heater and hit him across the head and then he jumped at me."

I had woken up and my dog had to be taken out to pee and this happened.

NOTE: there was no planes in the sky, there was no trains, the small town of Ohio was pretty much dead.

Part 2 of this will be uploaded, and it lasted a while after I stopped recording. A good 15-20 minutes and was still going when I went back inside.

Volcano erupts on Manam Island, Papua New Guinea

Volcano on Manam Island
The volcano on Manam Island in Bogia, Madang in Papua New Guinea has erupted on Sunday evening, forcing many who had moved back there fleeing for safety, the local newspaper reports.

Paul Maburau, the ward councillor for Dugulava village on the island, said they saw flames coming out at around 7pm when many villagers were preparing to have dinner.

He said fire was coming out of both craters of the volcano - the one between Bokure village and Kualang village, and the one between Dugulava and Warisi villages.

Maburau said more blasts came during the night and continued through yesterday.


6 photos that show just how cold it was in Germany over Easter weekend

Easter for many across Germany meant either snow, rain, or even both over the weekend. And the chilly weather is set to continue.

From Berlin down to Munich, snow fell across the country over the Easter weekend, making the springtime holiday feel more wintry than perhaps many had hoped.

Flowers were already blooming for the season, but in some places, icy blankets hid them from sight, like below in Feldafing, Bavaria.

Snow ploughs even had to be deployed in some places, like below in Taunus, Hesse, to clear away the fields of white powder.
