Whenever I hear of people talking about how their cats would do fine in the wild, I think of Tiger Ranch

i don’t claim to understand the minds, such as they may be, of animals but the wants and needs of tigers and domesticated cats are not even remotely similar.

edited: yeah whoops. didn’t realize it was just a cat “sanctuary”. i’ll leave the above up for evidence that i’m a bit of a dumbass. and also because i don’t really have much to say any more.

@Pierce I just know. I saw a lot of cats doing fine in wilds. In russian villages cats never was a pet. It’s pretty “utilitarian” animal that should work hard to be in house. You don’t feed your cat during spring/summer/fall. Cat is on its own. And female cats very often give birth outside of the house since they know that litter is going to be drawn except probably one kitten. Those kittens are raised a side very often become feral. Out of 5 kittens two would survive the first winter. After this average life span is about 7 years.

@Mick You can visit Moscow and watch dogs. They act like set of Dingos. They live on their own in pretty big packs, hunt pets (including cats) and small animals. Behavior is very sophisticated. I don’t propose smaller cities since in smaller ones they is special service (and very often people) that just shoot dogs since there are many cases when dog attacks small children.

On the note of keeping predators in confined spaces for our amusement:

@Pierce Kid felt 14 feet before any dog got to him.

“Pittsburgh police Major Crimes Lt. Kevin Kraus said the boy’s 34-year-old mother placed the child in a standing position on a wooden railing overlooking the enclosure.”

“Almost immediately after that he lost his balance, fell down off the railing into the actual pit and he was immediately attacked by 11 dogs,” Lt. Kraus said.

I’m getting my hit and runs confused, wasn’t there a guy who hit a cyclist, kept going, stopped to take the bike off his car and then continued on his way?

Also, weren’t there eyewitnesses on the scene for this who called in an ambulance?

Yes. That’s what this one is. The guy turned himself in or his mother called police 7 hours later (depending on whose story you believe) and it’s taken 6 months for charges to actually be filed.

As to taking the bike off the jeep, the bike was found blocks later apparently on a sidewalk or otherwise somewhere that one would assume it didn’t just fall off, implying that the driver stopped to remove it. Or it was a deer (depending on whose story you believe)

Yes, that was the incident involving Dan Y, and two other riders were with him.

As the thread is “2 for 2″ and this makes it 3 for 3, it’s not necessarily so far off.

Great article!

But nothing in the article referenced indicated that anyone currently gives Lysenko’s theory any creedence.

So stepdad and mom have big alligator in the basement, dad shoots grandma, son slits throat of cyclist

[Edited because I forgot the kid was living with his mom and stepdad, not his dad]

I think it’s going to be pretty difficult to draw any useful inferences from the behavior of this family. Ex., the Dad has long hair and a grungy beard like Kurt Cobain. Hence also a brilliant but depressed rock singer?

They don’t hold water now, but it’s not clear a revival of Lysenko’s theory couldn’t gain creedence someday.

(Credence means a belief something’s true, while “creedence” means that band.)

First, some closure on a still dangling sub-thread:
Also Crédance, a group choreographed by Bernard Coclet (and others) that draws on dances of the Auvergne. Check them out if you can.

re Scholl:
Maybe the only way to get to the bottom of this is to dunk him in a pool of alligators. If he floats/levitates above it all then surely he is innocent (and moreover entitled to have others speak for him, with the force of law). To think that my college advisor suggested that I go to law school…

IIRC (and I might not) they have a variety of eveidence besides the cofession.

BTW – excellent comment, CBurch!

i wish they would stop saying “the cyclist cut him off”. my understanding of the facts is that that’s not even particularly true.

Glad the statement is allowed and I am glad about the charges. Hope he gets a very long time away. That video was sick.

Wow, local media is making this look like Scholl might get away with this. Or, that he’ll cop and insanity plea for reduced charges.

Poor Colin! Be strong through these tough days in court!

Fingers are crossed that justice will be served.

I’m really glad that they didn’t suppress the confession.
The defense opening statement is supposed to make you doubt everything. But don’t forget they have video (blurry video, but still) of the guy leaving the scene, and his car, as well as Colin’s ID. It’s the next best thing to DNA evidence.

If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Colin, he’s a remarkable individual. Thoughtful, philosophical, very impressive. Works at Iron City Bikes’ new location in L-Ville. Sort of the complete opposite of the perpetrator.

I have a little bit of sympathy for Mr. Scholl. It’s good he’s going to be out of circulation for a while, but what he really needs is psychiatric intervention, and what are the chances he’s going to get that?

^I hear what you are saying. That said, I’d wager that Mr. Scholl has a better change of getting mental health treatment in prison than he would living with (presumably) parents of very modest means and a stinky alligator in a ramshackle row house in West Homestead.
