Don't feed the animals

Aren't 'chew' lucky?
A news morsel from Taiwan. In Taipei, a veterinarian, mistakenly thinking a crocodile had been tranquilized, was stumped when the hungry reptile severed his forearm. I'll go out on a limb here, and say that I can't really blame the crocodile - I like Asian food, too.
In gnawing pain, the zoo worker was rushed to hospital where surgeons were able to successfully reattach the arm. Applause for the vet who showed grit & bravery throughout this disarming ordeal - let's give him a hand!

great reporting... yet again...
i myself have covered a few articals in my yahoo journal;

i was particularly impressed by the one about the girl who totalled a police car and being thrown from the car emerged from the bushes unharmed. Now that was classic. The cops will have to think twice before harrassing innocent bicyclists again! (julio pop)
