JOHANNESBURG — South Africa’s press agency says a giraffe has kicked a woman to death at a game farm in northeastern South Africa.
The South African Press Agency said Wednesday that the woman took a walk with her two dogs on the game farm in Limpopo province Saturday morning. The agency, citing South Africa’s Beeld newspaper, says one of the dogs ran towards a herd of giraffe, scaring them. The newspaper says the 25-year-old woman tried to protect the dog, prompting a giraffe to kick her in the neck, killing her.
Giraffes are found in South Africa’s Kruger National Park, which covers part of Limpopo province. Although giraffes subsist on leaves and do not hunt, they are capable of delivering crushing blows with their powerful legs when threatened.
SAINT-JUDE, Quebec — Authorities said they have found the bodies of all four members of a family who went missing after their house was swallowed by a gaping sinkhole northeast of Montreal.
Authorities said the family was in their basement cheering on the Montreal Canadiens in their Stanley Cup playoff ice hockey game against the Pittsburgh Penguins when the massive landslide hit Monday night in Saint-Jude, a town of 1,000, near the Yamaska River.
“After digging and going through the rubble we found the four victims,” Michael Dore, Quebec’s emergency management co-ordinator, said Tuesday night. “They were found very close to one another, some of them lying on the couch in the family room in the basement.”
The first body found belonged to father Richard Prefontaine. The others were his wife Lynne Charbonneau and daughters Anais, 9, and Amelie, believed to be 11.
The landslide tore a hole more than four times the size of a football field into Saint-Jude, a verdant village near Montreal.
Sinkholes can occur when water undermines an area of land or when rock below the land surface shifts.
This particular sinkhole ate up three cars, one stretch of a concrete road and most of the house that once sat by a cliff over a tributary of the Yamaska River. The landslide pulled down that cliff.
Rescue workers struggled for almost a full day – at times digging with their hands – to enter a home that was mostly buried in mud with only its green roof left peeking out.
“It’s a pretty gigantic crater,” said Francois Gregoire, a fire department spokesman. “It’s hard imagining something like this. It’s pretty impressive.”
Don’t worry Rush. Obama is a horrible golfer and chances are that he cheats too.
When President Obama was asked if he would play a round of golf with his talk-radio nemesis Rush Limbaugh, the response, relayed by a top Democrat, was: “Limbaugh can play with himself.”
This is according to Zev Chafets in his new book, “Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One,” due May 25 from Sentinel.
The caustic comeback is another example of the verbal venom between the White House and the conservative radio star. In an interview with CBS News last month, Obama called the views spelled out by Limbaugh and Fox News Channel’s Glenn Beck “troublesome.”
Chafets reports he encouraged Limbaugh to reach out to the president just after last July’s “Beer Summit” that Obama hosted between Professor Henry Louis Gates and Sgt. Joseph Crowley, the Cambridge cop who arrested Gates after he locked himself out of his own home.
“You guys are both golfers,” Chafets told Limbaugh. “Would you play a round with the president and show the country that there are no hard feelings?”
“He’s the president of the United States,” Limbaugh told Chafets. “If any president asked me to meet him, or play golf with him, I’d do it. But I promise you that will never happen. His base on the left would have a s–t-fit.”
“How about letting me ask?” Chafets said.
“Go ahead,” Limbaugh said. “Nothing will come of it.”
Chafets writes that he reached out to Obama adviser David Axelrod, “whom I know slightly,” but Axelrod didn’t return calls. Then Chafets spoke to “a very senior Democratic activist with whom I’m friendly” who said he would convey the message.
A day or two later the adviser responded, “Limbaugh can play with himself.” Chafets wouldn’t name the aide or say whether the quote was directly from Obama.
A spokesman said Limbaugh had not seen the book, and wouldn’t comment. The White House did not respond to e-mails.
