▪ A North Carolina taxidermy shop filled with stuffed animals received an unexpected visitor last week: a live deer. Taxidermist Keith Bowman said he was woken by a 3 a.m. phone call from a sheriff’s deputy, who informed him that a deer was spotted in his store. “I said, ‘There’s a lot of deer in there,’” Bowman told local TV news, “and [the deputy said], ‘No, I mean a live one.’” The deputy said he suspected the animal, which escaped uninjured out of a back door, had been “trying to free his friend.”
▪ Russia’s government has launched an investigation into fidget spinners over concerns that the West is using the toys to corrupt its youth. State-run TV said in a recent news report that fidget spinners were an “instrument for zombifying” young people, and consequences” for mental health.
▪ A Florida family woke to a loud bang when 15 pounds of pork products fell from the sky onto their home. “It was like thunder,” said Travis Adair, who rushed outside to find packages of meat in his yard and on his roof. Adair thinks the pork fell from a plane, and l the roof,” Williams said. ■
