From time to time, the internet explodes with news of supposedly new “finds” involving strange beasts and other bizarre phenomena. Some of these unearthed discoveries include dual-headed animals, shapeless blobs, “aliens,” and strange creatures washed ashore from the deep.
In other cases, people are astounded when “evidence” of totally mythical beings suddenly make an appearance. Like the huge collection of bones Chinese villagers found in a field
Apparently, they appear to be the remains of a 60-foot-long animal.
Maybe something that used to look this:
Or maybe even this:
In any case, the superstitious residents of small backwater Zhangjiakou in northern Hebei Province claim the bones only prove that dragons really exist.
Based on the lengthy spine and two tiny arm bones with claws, they say this may very well be an example of a traditional Chinese dragon.

Instead it appeared curiously undamaged and put-together.
At present, no experts have yet come forward to present their findings. Neither have any pranksters admitted to intentionally laying the ribby skeleton where it would easily be found.

When traveling, for example, you can choose to leave your pet at home or in someone else's care, or you can find pet-friendly places and bring them along. This should be easy with your feline friend or your canine buddy, but what if your pet is a horse?
One woman named Lindsey Partridge was checking into the Super 8 motel in Georgetown, Kentucky when she overheard that a guest had a pet dog with her. Realizing the place was pet-friendly, she decided to test its limits.
Partridge was on her way to compete in the Retired Racehorse Project’s Thoroughbred Makeover competition when she stopped by the motel.
While checking in, Partridge asked the staff if she could bring her horse inside the motel, and like the pet-friendly establishment that they are, Super 8 agreed. Patridge then went to her trailer in the parking lot and brought her horse named Blizz (who used to race as Here Comes Adri) inside the motel. ...
