Harper’s is getting me suspicious that animals are thoroughly fed up with what’s going on and, under the cover of their, uh, animal appearance, are trying to rectify our calamity:
A man in Schererville, Pennsylvania, called the police after being cornered in his garage by wild turkeys, and groundhogs in Belleville, Illinois, bit two people, took over a historic district, and climbed trees.
…in Billings, Montana, a team of sled dogs escaped from a training session and led police on a low-speed chase.
And although you’ve seen this one previously, there’s an addition, in the form of dialog with the dog:
…an Oklahoma woman was nonfatally shot in a pickup truck when her dog stepped on her gun; in a recording of the 9-1-1 call, the driver could be heard telling the Labrador retriever, “Oh, Molly, you’re the one that pulled the trigger. Don’t give me no shit.”
