Actually, that’s not true. All of these animals were, um, animals.
Both from Lowering the Bar:
First of all, I don’t think this is one of those cases that involves the debate whether pit bulls are inherently vicious or have to be raised that way. It’s probably enough to note that it involved, on one side, a single 10-year-old beagle, and on the other, four pit bulls that did in fact kill another dog. So let’s start with that.
Moving on from the vicious — oops, I mean “noble” — killer pit bulls we have a duck. A huge duck.
I like to think that most people would yield to a duck if it was safe to do so. But what if the duck was six-foot-four? The answer is apparently no.
This duck was, in fact, an undercover officer dressed in a Donald Duck costume (and so arguably not “undercover” at all). He was part of an operation in Fort Lee, New Jersey, intended to encourage drivers to yield to pedestrians. According to Chief Kenneth Bendul, 102 pedestrians have been hit by cars in Fort Lee during the past two years, and he hopes the Pedestrians in the Crosswalk safety program will bring those numbers down.
OMG that’s right across the river! Fort Lee! On the other hand, it’s right across the river. Jersey. So…
