An arthritic chook has got a new lease on life after he was fitted with a pair of specially designed shoes to relieve his pain and discomfort. Ricky the rooster was rescued by Vancouver park rangers in Stanley park and soon became a permanent fixture, living at the ranger’s facility. When they realised he had dodgy feet they organised the shoes.
Oh for crying out loud Canada, thanks!Seems your bedbugs are carrying a potent drug-resistant staph bacteria . Sheez, always want to be just that little bit better than everyone else ah? Anywho, 5 of the little suckers were plucked off the bodies of people who had been hospitalized from a poverty stricken area of Vancouver and they were found to be infected with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE). Here’s the scary part, experts aren’t sure who is infecting who, is it the people infecting the bugs or the bugs infecting the people? Either way the friggin bacteria is resistant to antibiotics. Might want to sleep with one eye open!
Missing Growing Pains actor, Andrew Koenig, has been found dead in a Canadian park. For over a month his parents and fellow actors had been desperately trying to locate the actor who vanished after leaving his Los Angeles apartment and heading to visit friends in Vancouver. Yesterday his parents abruptly walked out on Larry King because they felt it was disrespectful to continually pushing back their interview because of the Seaworld tragedy. Later his parents organized a team to scour Stanley Park and it was there, in dense vegetation, they stumbled across his body. Evidently the actor had given away all his possessions prior to leaving for Canada. During a press conference following the discovery of the body his father said his son had taken his own life. Koenig played Richard “Boner” Stabone on the hit sitcom Growing Pains. He was 41.
