DUNLAP, Calif. -- The investigation into a lion attack that killed a 24-year-old woman who loved big cats is focusing on a cage door that the 550-pound animal managed to escape through to reach the volunteer intern, officials say. Authorities said Thursday they believe the 5-year-old male lion broke the neck of the woman at a Central California animal park after it got out of its feeding cage and attacked as she cleaned its bigger area. The investigation is continuing into how the powerful beast and Dianna Hanson came tragically to be in the same place

Even if this is the reason/explanation,it doesn´t excuse not having maximum precautions
in place for people choosing to do this kind of work. If she was an intern,she should have had better supervision.There´s some humans that believe wild animals have human qualities themselves. If I´m real nice to this lion,he won´t bother me.Nobody can predict a wild animals impulses.

FTA:"Hanson was talking with a co-worker on a cellphone in the moments before she was killed, the coroner said. The co-worker became concerned when the conversation ended abruptly and Hanson failed to call back. The co-worker then called authorities when she went to check on Hanson."

Must have been a really important call if you couldn´t wait until after you were out of a lion´s cage. Most of them are, I´m told.

Following Mike Rogers’ announcement that he won’t be seeking re-election as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, colleagues were shocked—but also eager to fill his big shoes. So far, three members have emerged as top con-tenders. Three Republican lawmakers are emerging as leading candidates to replace Rep. Mike Rogers as chairman of the powerful House Intelligence Committee, after Rogers announced Friday that he would not be seeking re-election to Congress. While Rogers has said he will continue to serve out his term until the current session of Congress ends, the race to become his successor has already begun. In interviews with GOP House

The Brady Campaign Prevention of Gun Violence Honor Roll member Sen. Leland Yee (and former frontrunner for Secretary of State), accused of selling rocket launchers to foreign countries, was the last straw. (Reuters) – The California state Senate voted on Friday to suspend three Democratic lawmakers who have been the subject of criminal probes, including Leland Yee, who was arrested this week in an FBI sweep on corruption and gun trafficking charges.

Trenton, New Jersey -- He´s baaaaack. The defiant and combative Chris Christie that reporters knew from the past returned in full spring bloom on Friday, now that a report he commissioned cleared him of wrongdoing in the George Washington Bridge lane closure controversy. A few minutes into his first news conference in more than two months, New Jersey´s Republican governor flashed his famous cantankerousness at suggestions he was hiding something about the apparently politically motivated traffic jams last September in Fort Lee. "Colorful," he interjected as one journalist asked an extended question. "Can you get to it already?" Later, he cut off a reporter

2 More Recalls Push GM
Total To 4.8M In A Month

DETROIT-- General Motors announced two more recalls late Friday, bringing to 4.8 million the number of cars, trucks and SUVs the automaker has called back for repairs in the past month. The string of recalls, topped by an ignition switch problem in compact cars now linked to 13 crash deaths, has embarrassed the company and sidetracked its new CEO, who started work just over two months ago. GM has admitted knowing about the switch problem a decade ago, yet it didn´t recall any cars until February. The recall delay has brought two congressional investigations and probes by the Justice Department and

BAY CITY, MI — Police say the pursuit of a man suspected of burglarizing a pair of sheds in Bay City had an unpleasant and odorous ending when the fleeing man was sprayed by a skunk. About 2:17 a.m. on Monday, March 24, police responded to a break-in of sheds in the 305 block of West Calumet Street on Bay City´s West Side. A man had called 911 to report two men taking items from two sheds in his neighbor’s backyard, court records show. Police arrived and saw two men exit the sheds. One of the men, whom police say

The National Republican Senatorial Committee will send a letter to 34 Louisiana network affiliates Thursday requesting that an attack ad produced by the pro-Democratic Senate Majority PAC be pulled from television, and threatening legal action if it isn´t. The letter, penned by NRSC general counsel Megan Sowards, charges that the ad is "patently false." "Since the Senate Majority PAC advertisement contains false and misleading statements, we hereby demand that your station stop airing this advertisement immediately," the letter reads.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Australian officials shifted their search for the missing Malaysian jetliner by nearly 700 miles, citing "a new credible lead´´ about the path of the aircraft and where debris may be located. Martin Dolan, chief commissioner of the Australian Air Transport Safety Bureau, said a revised analysis of radar data prompted the agency to refocus the search in the Indian Ocean off Perth. The analysis indicates that the plane was flying faster than previously estimated between the South China Sea and the Strait of Malacca before radar contact was lost, Dolan said. Based on that new speed data, analysts

The climate campaign is collapsing faster than one of my popover recipes made with old flour and not enough milk.

The mystery behind L’Wren Scott’s tragic suicide deepened Wednesday, as the designer’s newly revealed will shows she wasn’t drowning in money woes when she took her own life last week — but was instead sitting on a $9 million fortune. Although reports indicated Scott’s design business, LS Fashion Ltd., was $5.9 million in the red, her will bequeathed her $8 million condo, which she owned under a corporate name, to the love of her life, Mick Jagger. The sexy ex-model also left the already ultra-rich Rolling Stones frontman — who had allegedly dumped her — a $1?million trove of other valuables. Her family,

Moscow’s annexation of Crimea was condemned worldwide, but some people in Alaska apparently are yearning for the days when they, too, were part of Mother Russia. A petition on the White House website created by “S.V.” of Anchorage is calling on Alaskans and others to "vote" for Alaska to secede from the U.S. and become a part of Russia. In less than a week, the petition, titled “Alaska Back to Russia,” has garnered nearly 30,000 signatures, though it´s unclear where they are from. “Vote for secession of Alaska from the United States and joining Russia,” the petition says.

DETROIT -- The families of Detroit´s Brightmoor area are delighted that the day is finally approaching when bulldozers will arrive to level more of their neighborhood. After that, their community´s future will be like the cleared landscape - a blank canvas. For years, Brightmoor residents pleaded with the city to demolish vacant homes that scavengers had stripped of wiring and plumbing and anything of value. Some structures are already gone, and now officials aim to do much more, possibly tearing down as many as 450 empty houses each week across more than 20 square miles of this bankrupt city - a

Via America Rising and the IJR, is this the key that finally unlocks the enigma of Harry Reid, tinpot demagogue? Maybe, from moment to moment, this guy just … doesn’t realize what’s coming out of his mouth. Hard to believe he could forget saying on the Senate floor that all ObamaCare horror stories — all of them — are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act. Those remarks got heavy coverage in conservative media, and even got picked up at WaPo. You don’t toss a grenade that powerful without choosing your

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

Right now, a crime wave is sweeping the nation, and everyone in this out-of-control mob has a D after their names, even if most of the media are loath to report it. If you are a low-information voter, a Globe subscriber, say, you have been told endlessly that the root of all evil in American politics is the Tea Party, better known in your moonbat media as “teabaggers.” Oddly, however, the hacks rounded up over the last few days, well,

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

London - England’s public health agency says two people have caught tuberculosis from a pet cat, the first time the bacterial disease has been documented to spread from cat to human. In a report published Thursday, Public Health England said it concluded TB samples taken from the cat and from two people in contact with the animal were “indistinguishable” and that the cat was considered to be “the likely source of infection.” Between December 2012 and last April, veterinarians identified TB in nine pet cats in Berkshire and Hampshire, west of London. Public Health England said the two people who caught TB were recovering and said the risk

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the
