Appetite For Destruction

by on May.09, 2015, under Animals, Family, Health, Nature

Benno is a Belgian Malinois with a healthy appetite. In his four years, he's eaten a lot of strange objects, from underwear and and blankets to electronics and a gasoline-soaked lawn mower air filter. bruno02 Owner Larry Brassfield had been repackaging ammunition the night before when he woke up early to his wife telling him that the dog had thrown up. She said there was ammo in the vomit. X-rays showed that the dog had some improperly loaded rounds in his stomach. benno_xray They weren't able to tell exactly how many there were, but they could distinguish 17 or 18. Benno would definitely not have been legal in the state of California, where you can't have more than ten rounds in your dog at a time. benno_rounds02 Ultimtely they removed 23 rounds from his stomach. benno_xray02 Another x-ray showed two remaining cartridges in his esophagus, but vets decided to wait and allow them time to chamber instead of performing another surgery right away. bruno01 Five days later, one of the rounds was ejected, and 3 days after that, he shot out the final round. benno_chewed Benno is expected to fully recover and has already regained his appetite for destruction. benno_02

Dead of Night

Politics make strange bedfellows, and so does a successful marriage. When Marcel H died at the age of 79, his 69 year old widow was devastated. She wanted him to remain at her side, so she didn't report the death. marcelh01 It is believed that he died from an asthma attack in November 2012. His doting wife continued to sleep with the corpse despite the smell of decomposition. marcelh02 Neighbors didn't report any unusual odors, but authorities were called after the landlord claimed that the couple hadn't paid their rent since 2012. When they entered the apartment, they found Marcel's mummified remains. marcelh03 Philippe Boxho, pathologist at the Forensic Center of Liege explained,“A body can mummify in a dry, warm environment. It takes at least a week to reach such a state. In this case the body had rotten in the bed and his internal organs had melted and liquefied.” marcelh04 “This liquid would have spread and the bed would have been swarming with insects as the body rotted, this would have been a real shame. Even though the smell of human decay is quite specific, many people equate that smell to the smell of garbage and once the body has become rotten the smell does decrease significantly.” death_maiden “This is not the first time I have made a discovery of this kind, I've been faced with two or three other occasions where people have continued to sleep with the corpse of their partner.” said Boxho.
