I’m not sure what the pigeons think about this, but I think it’s a great idea. As long as the person is not gluing the hats to their tiny heads.

After seeing the cowboy pigeons a local had only one explanation: “The rodeo is in town.” That’s what Robert Lee told when asked about the pigeons he recorded wearing miniature cowboy hats. 

“That’s the only explanation I have. I saw something red on the pigeon’s head and looked down to these awesome things,” he said.

A local animal rescue and pigeon advocacy group known as Lofty Hopes has serious concerns about the negative impacts the hats will have on the pigeons. 

“Did they glue them? And what does that mean for them? Is it something that’s going to impede their flight or attract predators?“ Maria Hillman, a member of the group, said.

Lofty Hopes shared a video from the Facebook page Las Vegas Locally on Monday of a few pigeons wearing the cowboy hats, asking anyone who has seen any to call the number posted on their page. 

“At first, I was like, oh my God that’s cute!” Mariah Hillman told KVVU. “Then, I was like, wait a minute – how did they get those hats on there?“

While the identity of the person putting the hats on the pigeon remains unknown, Hillman told KVVU her organization is currently trying to track down the birds and remove their hats. 

So I should better watch carefully and make sure I have everything on video.

Ryan Bishop from Arizona, USA, was approaching the Pima County Fairgrounds entrance in his car on Sunday afternoon when suddenly the window on the driver’s side shattered, according to Tucson station KOLD TV.

“I had a very loud explosion happen in my window,” Bishop told the station. He said that at first he thought a rock broke it, and he decided to pull over and inspect. I opened the door, took a look around it and then I hear this ‘Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop!’” he said. So I got in my car and continued driving.”

He pulled over and called the police, who soon arrived at the scene. They discovered a bullet sitting on his dashboard, and that’s when Bishop focused on the taco he had been eating when the shots rang out. Bishop told KOLD he normally drives with his car window down with his arm on the window ledge, the same spot where the bullet hit his car.

“I’m pretty sure [eating a] taco saved my life, or at least stopped my arm from getting blown apart,” he said. “I had the window closed because I didn’t want pieces of the taco flying around.”

This is not the first time Tacos have saved people’s lives. In March, an Oregon man and his dog survived five days stuck in the snow by living off Taco Bell sauce. Also in March, a Florida man’s need for more hot sauce saved his life when a car crashed into a Taco Bell outlet right where he had just been sitting.

52-year-old Belinda Gail Fondren from Louisiana was charged with filing or maintaining false public records.

Police said a woman who worked at a medical clinic has been arrested for selling fake doctor’s notes to high school students so they can get out of class.

Vernon Parish Sheriff Sam Craft says Fondren was selling medical excuses for $20 each. He says two students at Evans High School in Evans, Louisiana received excuses on 14 occasions.

Deputies said a physician received a call from Vernon Parish School Board about the absence notes. He told deputies that he didn’t treat the students nor did he authorize the excuses.

Craft says Fondren worked in a clerical position at the clinic. I think that her business genius is wasted in this position. They should put her in charge of the hospital.

A student from Downington, Pennsylvania really wanted to win in a water gun fight and decided to hack the school district’s system and access personal information belonging to dozens of students. The attack was discovered on October 11th during the Cybersecurity Awareness Month.

“It makes me kind of nervous knowing somebody can hack into our school system,” student Holly Griswold said.

“An attack like this in an attack not only on the school district, but it’s also an attack on our students and their families,” school district official Jennifer Shealy said.

Officials say a student used coding methods to gain access to a student portal called Naviance. The website helps students with their post-high school plans.

“It looks like it was what we call an account takeover, so the hacker was able to get teachers’ login information and from there they could access all the students’ information,” said Maya Levine, a security engineer with Check Point Softw

A school district spokesperson says the hacker gained access to a range of private information: student identifications, grade point averages, addresses, phone numbers, genders and ethnicities.

Officials say a student wanted to gain a competitive advantage in a game known as Senior Water Games, where students go around town shooting water guns at each other.

How point averages and phone numbers could help him win a water gun fight remains unclear.

A security guard in Waukesha, Wisconsin had to call police after he handcuffed himself on purpose.It happened Friday morning inside a Bath and Body Works store. 

Police say the man told them he was bored, so he put the handcuffs on. He forgot the keys at home.After officers freed him, they say he hid the handcuffs from himself so he wouldn’t put them on again. 

He said this wasn’t the first time he handcuffed himself and didn’t have the key. It also probably isn’t the last time. The man is obviously a repeat offender.

A school in Nashville, Tennessee has banned JK Rowling’s Harry Potter books after the pastor who runs the school declared the books contain real spells and curses. 

Reverend Dan Reehill, of St Edward Catholic School in Nashville, told parents in an email that he had spoken to exorcists in the US and at the Vatican before banning the book series.

“These books present magic as both good and evil, which is not true, but in fact a clever deception. The curses and spells used in the books are actual curses and spells; which when read by a human being risk conjuring evil spirits into the presence of the person reading the text,” Reverend Reehill wrote.

Rebecca Hammel, the superintendent of schools for the Catholic Diocese of Nashville, said since the Catholic Church does not have an official position on the Harry Potter Mr Reehill has the final say on the subject.

“Each pastor has canonical authority to make such decisions for his parish school,” she said. “He’s well within his authority to act in that manner.”

You win some, you lose some. Although “you lose some, you lose some” would probably be the more appropriate idiom here. A man from Washington state experienced a lose/lose situation when his car was stolen while he was busy robbing the business across the street.

At around 6:00a.m. Sunday, Kennewick Police responded to reports of an auto theft. The owner of the vehicle, William Kelley, called police saying that someone had stolen his red, 1992 Chevy pick-up. According to police, a man noticed that Kelley had left his keys behind on the seat and stole the truck.

After surveillance video was analyzed, police discovered that the reason Kelley had left his truck was because he was  stealing items from a business across the street.

Kelley was of course booked in the Benton County jail on a warrant and a new burglary charge. He car was not found.

Doorbell surveillance cameras in Henrico County, Virginia captured a man with a TV set over his head, leaving older TV sets  on people’s front porches and just walking off. The ancient devices were found at more than 50 homes.

“He wants to be known as the TV Santa Claus. I don’t know. We got an old tube-style TV, 13 inch- I thought my son brought it home, but apparently not. They had way too much time on their hands if they had all these TV’s and spread them all over the neighborhood. It’s summer, and people are getting ready to go back to school. Maybe TV man was just ready to strike and put a little humor in our lives.” said homeowner Jim Brooksbank.

Officers and county workers spent Sunday morning picking up the old units and hauling them away.

This is the second time the police and residents had to deal with the TV set mystery. The same thing happened in a different neighborhood last August. According to Henrico Police, the only crime committed was illegal dumping.

Considering that in a lot of US towns you have to pay 25 dollars to dispose of an old TV, this little stunt saved TV Head a lot of money.
