Snakes Alive! Frightening Find In Kitchen



A woman who reached into her cutlery drawer had a big shock when instead of a spoon she found a snake curled up inside.

The woman had been making a cup of tea at her home in Aberdeen.

She rang the police, who called in the Scottish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, which is now caring for the red, black and brown striped milk snake at its centre in Drumoak.

It is thought that the reptile, which staff have named Spooner, is a pet which may have escaped from somewhere nearby.

Animal rescue officer Lynne Craib said: “The poor woman got a real fright when she reached into the drawer to grab a teaspoon and found Spooner the snake instead.

“Spooner is in good condition, so we think he has been someone’s pet until recently.

“Snakes need heat to survive and it was quite warm in the lady’s kitchen, so that may be why Spooner went inside the drawer.

“We’ve rescued snakes from all sorts of unusual places over the last few months, including behind a washing machine and around a lamppost, but this is the first one found in a cutlery drawer.

“Snakes are really good escape artists, so there’s every chance Spooner has an owner nearby who is missing him.”

The snake was found on Friday. Milk snakes are not dangerous to humans.

Woman makes nephew ride in trunk of Lexus to protect seats

An Edina woman has been charged with child endangerment after she allegedly had her 11-year-old nephew ride in the trunk of her Lexus so he wouldn’t drip water on its leather seats.

According to the criminal complaint, Susan Marie McCarty, 38, was charged after she admitted that she had her nephew get into the trunk because he was damp from going on a water ride at Valleyfair.

On the afternoon of Aug. 23, witnesses in a parking lot at the Shakopee amusement park reported seeing a boy climb into the trunk while two women watched. Witnesses gave police the license number of the car, and after being stopped by officers, McCarty told them the back seat console had been folded down so the boy could get some air.

When he said he was getting hot, she said, air vents were aimed at the hole, which was about the size of a piece of paper. Temperatures that day were in the mid 80s.

McCarty said on Tuesday night that, halfway to her car in the Valleyfair parking lot, she realized that she didn’t have a towel for the boy. She said she would never purposely put her family in danger and was glad no one had been hurt. “I didn’t assess the situation,” McCarty said.

The boy, who had been dropped off at his home in Wayzata before police stopped his aunt, told police that he had gone on a water ride right before they left Valleyfair and that his aunt had wanted him to ride in the trunk because he was wet and that he didn’t want to question her. Despite the console being open and being able to fit his face in the opening, the boy said, he was still hot and would have rather sat in the back seat.

The boy’s 14-year-old sister told police that he had seemed excited about riding in the trunk. She said she and her grandmother had “somewhat of an uneasy feeling” about the boy riding in the trunk, but they, too, didn’t question her aunt.

If convicted, McCarty could face as much as a year in prison and $3,000 in fines.

Woman’s Body Snatched from Pleasantville Cemetery

Police are searching for the people responsible for stealing a woman’s body from a mausoleum at the Atlantic City Cemetery in Pleasantville last week.

Cemetery workers say the mausoleum’s door was pried open and that the coffin that housed the body of Pauline Spinelli was empty inside.

“The person who came here came with the tools necessary to break into that,” Pleasantville Police Captain Rocky Melendez told NBC10’s Ted Greenberg.

The empty coffin was discovered around on Friday, according to police.

They say the body was stolen sometime between Thursday night and early Friday.

“You gotta think…they took her out of the box and threw her in the back of their car with them,” Spinelli’s grandson Rocco told NBC10.

Spinelli was laid to rest inside the mausoleum with other family members in 1996. She was 98 years old when she died.

Police are working to determine if the theft of Spinelli’s body may be connected to two others in Middlesex County. In 2010, the body of a 2-year-old was stolen and in 2011, a 72-year-old Joseph Lamela’s body was taken, according to authorities

They’re also investigating the possibility that Spinelli’s remains were stolen for some sort of cult ritual.

“I don’t want to see someone desecrate her body — chop her up or make some sort of voodoo dust out of her,” said Rocco Spinelli.

He just wants the thieves to bring his grandmom back, or else…”grandmom is going to haunt them for rest of their lives.”

Minnesota man charged with burrito assault

AUSTIN, Minn. — After tossing a burrito at a woman on Tuesday night, an Adams, Minn., man was charged in Mower County District Court with gross misdemeanor domestic assault.

Troy Hansen also was re-sentenced for a probation violation on a gross misdemeanor DWI conviction from July and sentenced to 180 days in jail.

According to court documents:

Adams police and a Mower County sheriff’s deputy went to the 100 block of Fourth Street NW in Adams after 9 p.m. Tuesday for a report of a domestic dispute. When they arrived, they discovered Hansen had allegedly thrown a burrito at the woman; toppings were still on her head and right shoulder.

The court complaint states Hansen asked the woman for a cigarette and got angry when she refused. He then dumped her plate off the bed and threw her cooked burrito, which struck her in the head. The complaint does not state that the victim was burned, but she said she was scared.

Hansen admitted he had about six pints of beer, was given a breath test and registered a .254 blood-alcohol content, the complaint adds. He was arrested for domestic assault. A review of his record shows a previous conviction for third-degree domestic assault in June 2009.

Woman drops dead at counter of McDonald’s and staff ‘keep on serving burgers’

Staff at a McDonald’s in Croatia allegedly carried on selling burgers despite the fact a customer had dropped dead in front of the counter.

After efforts to revive her failed, the woman was instead propped up in the corner of the restaurant and had a napkin placed over her head as workers continued to serve other customers, it has been claimed.

The woman, thought to have died of a suspected heart attack, had complained of feeling unwell just moments after going inside the fast food restaurant in the southern town of Sibenik.

She collapsed at the counter and, despite emergency services being called, doctors were unable to revive the Bosnian woman, who lived in Denmark but had been visiting the area.

Staff have been criticised after they carried on serving drive-through customers after she was declared dead.

Croatian media reported that the body was in the restaurant for an hour-and-a-half before a mortuary car arrived to remove it.

Restaurant officials have claimed local media exaggerated the incident and said it was only the drive-thru section that remained operating while they awaited mortuary staff.

They also said that the main restaurant – where the body was – had been closed to customers.

McDonald’s was contacted for comment but did not respond to the request.
