While some people are advised against owning pit bulls, reasoning that the breed is unpredictable and aggressive, one family hails their pit bull pet for saving a family member. For them, they would have not reunited with the two-year-old Charlee Campbell if not because of their dog, Penny.
The Campbell toddler went missing from her grandmother’s home in Lebanon Junction, Kentucky recently, and was believed to have wandered into the woods. While Charlee is now out of the woods, literally and figuratively speaking, her family believes that she would have not been found if not because of Penny.
It is believed that Penny kept the 2-year-old Charlee company during her 2-day disappearance.
According to Beth Campbell, she believes that her granddaughter was not alone throughout her unplanned adventure in the woods. After all, the missing toddler and dog returned at almost the same time two days after.
“When my dog didn’t come home, and my baby wasn’t home, she was not going to leave that baby until she got here,” said the elder Campbell.
How a two-year-old survived in the woods for two days and only in the company of a dog amazed the authorities.
In a Facebook post, the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office revealed that the dog returned home just before Charlee was found by neighbors, which makes it very likely that the toddler and Penny had been together all along.
The statement said:
“Charlee’s amazing survival story continued tonight when she walked up on a porch on Roy Layne Road this evening. The homeowners realized who she was and contacted authorities. Ironically, her dog returned home on its own a few minutes prior to Charlee approaching the homeowners.”
Thankfully, other than insect bites, Charlee was unharmed when she was found.
While the toddler appeared dehydrated and had some tick bites when she was found, luckily, she had no serious injuries. Nonetheless, she was still brought to the hospital immediately for evaluation.
Authorities also thanked its people and the public for their contributions on the search and rescue of the two-year old toddler, including the firefighters, EMT’s, dispatchers, search teams, other public safety agencies, and the volunteer searchers from the community.
It has also been revealed that, despite Charlee and Penny being now back safely, investigations on how the child disappeared will continue.
Cockroach Bread That ‘Tastes Like Peanuts’ Could End World Hunger, Prevent Global Warming
Scientists say that cockroaches are “really good and tasty!”
How far would people go to save the world from hunger and climate change? A group of Brazilian researchers has an interesting solution that could solve world hunger and global warming. The scientists have made a special bread that is reportedly cost-efficient and delicious at the same time. But are people truly ready to eat cockroach bread?
The researchers at the Federal University of Rio Grande (FURG) have proposed adding cockroaches into bread for a high protein snack. However, these critters are not the usual cockroach you might find running around in your home. According to Lauren Mengon, the Nauphoeta cinerea or "lobster roaches" are bred in captivity and are only fed fruits and vegetables.
The scientists used speckled cockroaches for their special bread.
Car Owner Hit By Meteorite Asks Payment From Church After Insurance Calls it Act of God
He told the priest to ask his Master what he can do about the car damage.
Putting a number on the chances of getting hit by a meteorite or any of the so-called 'act of God' is as difficult as it is rare, studies say. However, Percy England of Barwell, England would probably disagree. It was, in fact, an alleged 'act of God' that hit him and his dream, and on Christmas Eve too!
Imagine finding your brand new car with a hole in the bonnet? You probably feel hatred deep down your bones for whoever did it to you. It was perhaps this feeling that filled Percy, after he finds his beloved and brand new Vauxhall Viva damaged by a meteorite on the Christmas Eve of 1965.
Days before Christmas, Percy had bought a Vauxhall Viva HA 1057cc, a small family car, for himself and his family, only to find it damaged on Christmas Eve.
