A baby deer was recently delivered safely via c-section after its mother darted into oncoming traffic and was accidentally struck and killed by car in New York.

Baby Deer

Being an experienced hunter, the driver opted not to leave the deer on the side of the road, and saw an opportunity to salvage the fresh venison.

Eating road-kill in New York State is illegal, but regardless, he began to salvage the carcass when he came upon what he thought was tumor in the abdomen.

What he discovered was an entirely different sort of growth.

It wasn't a tumor, but rather a fawn, still alive! The stunned hunter contacted authorities at this point, and the baby was passed off to trained professionals.

The young one is still alive and improving, slowly but surely.

Man's best friend?

Or man's most dangerous friend?!?

A 19-year old man was shot this week when hunting birds in Minneosta, with authorities confirming his dog was actually the one who pulled the trigger. By accident... we assume!

The puppy reportedly jumped on to his owner's shotgun inside a boat and his paw hit the trigger, causing a cartridge to blast into the victim's leg.

The Star Tribune describes the man's injuries as non-life-threatening, but should this incident be cause for concern across the pet kingdom.

In February, another man was shot by his dog in Florida, making us wonder if canines are trying to send a message. Perhaps they want more Kibbles than Bits? Be careful out there, owners.

Big Freedia helped orchestrate a new world record as 358 people simultaneously Twerked their rear ends off yesterday in Herald Square in Manhattan.

Yes ... the Twerking World Record was set.

The New Orleans hip-hop diva officially broke the record for "Most People Twerking Simultaneously" Or, better put, a "Record Breaking Booty Shaking."

Big Freedia, who you may know from RuPaul's "Peanut Butter" music video, set out to gather hundreds of people to twerk, together, for two minutes.

That's less time than we saw Miley Cyrus Twerking on Robin Thicke last month, but with 358 people going hard at once, it got this particular job done.

A mall in Nassau County was the sight of a tragic shooting this afternoon, as a man believed to be 63-year old Sang Ho Kim killed his former boss and injured an ex-colleague.

Police have described Kim as a "disgruntled contractor" who had been working for a the lighting company Savenergy. He allegedly walked into a store where four employees were present; entered a room; and shot the store's owner, along with another man.

He then fled the scene in a white Honda.

"At this point and time we believe that this suspect is armed and very dangerous," Nassau County Police Chief of Department Steven Skrynecki told reporters. "Right now we are involved in a very massive hunt for this individual."

Skrynecki added that this appeared to be an isolated, personal incident that stemmed from some kind of "bad business deal."

A testicle-eating fish known as Pacu has been turning up further and further from its native Amazon habitat, with sightings reported in Scandinavia, France and Illinois.

And now Northern New Jersey.

Tom Boylan hooked a 10-inch-long Pacu at Third Ward Veteran's Memorial Park in Passaic, N.J., just 10 miles from NYC, according to The Bergen Record.

The species is known for its wide teeth shaped like molars and strong jaw muscles that allow them to bust open tree nuts and other tough aquatic foods.

Terrifyingly, however, they mistake human cojones for tree nuts. Two men in New Guinea reportedly died from blood loss after a Pacu chomped on theirs.

A woman in Texas has offered $10,000 to anyone who helps her find a husband.

She took some heat for that stunt, but at least she has a sense of humor about it.

The same can't exactly be said for a wedding photographer named Romeo Rose.

He's created a website titled Sleepless in Austin and tells visitors that he will give them a $1,500 "Finder's Fee" if they set him up with a girlfriend.

But he has some VERY specific demands. To wit, he writes:

Paul Karason, a man known for his blue skin, passed away Monday. Reports indicate that he died of a heart attack and stroke in a Washington hospital.

The "blue man" known as "Papa Smurf" was born a fair-skinned, freckled boy with reddish blond hair. But later, he developed skin with a bluish tinge.

This was the result of a rare medical syndrome known as argyria or silver poisoning from dietary supplements, which he says he took years ago.

In a 2008 interview, he said the blue tinge started more than a decade earlier when he saw an ad promising health and rejuvenation through colloidal silver.

He drank about 10 ounces a day of the substance, dissolved in water.

There's a new super dad in town. A parenting hero like none other. A man who wrangles children and drops knowledge on your dome like it's his job.

It's BatDad.

A man whose wisdom in the ways of child-rearing is literally limitless (save for the seven-second limit on Vine), he frequently dispenses tips online.

Watch this compilation of BatDad vines and learn from the parenting master. Oh, and yes, he is dressed in a Batman costume as he does his thing:

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, BatDad is Blake Wilson, a Caped Crusader who traded crime fighting for a wife, four kids and a Honda Odyssey.

The kids are really into the antics of their superhero father as he speaks in Batman’s signature husky voice while driving them all over creation.

Who can blame them?

A couple in Northern California waited several hours before reporting to the police that their 10-year old daughter had been shot on Friday.

Why? They believed she had simply suffered her very first period.

According the official police report, the girl was sleeping in her bed around 2 a.m. when a stray drive-by bullet struck her in the buttocks.

The girl awoke in pain and had blood in her underwear.

However, Sgt. Mark Ormsby says the victim's parents "had no reason to believe" the blood on her person was anything but period-related.

However, after the girl continued to complain, the couple investigated her bedroom and found bullet holes, eventually taking her to the hospital.

She remains there, in stable condition.

While quite an unusual situation, the girl's physician acknowledges the bullet wound was small and could easily have been mistaken for menstruation.

At this time, no arrests have been made in the shooting.

A 430-pound gorilla named Patrick is on the move from Dallas to South Carolina. But he isn't taking a vacation to check out the sights.

Deputy Dallas Zoo Director Lynn Kramer says the animal was neglected by his mother and raised by humans - and, as a result, has had difficulty bonding with other members of his species.

Especially, the females.

“We’ve made a colossal effort to work with him,” Kramer told The Dallas Morning News. “He’s definitely a staff favorite and he would have been a successful leader for a troupe here. But it was not to be.”
